Since POU (Poughkeepsie, NY) lost airline service, many businesses have moved into the terminal, including a cafe, a math and reading tutoring service, a massage therapist, a law office, and a county sheriff's substation. I believe there is also an FBO/flight school. It's interesting because the bui...Jump to post
Ground attack: IL-2
Fighter: tie between the P-51, Yak-3, Yak-9, and MiG-3
Bomber: B-17 with B-25 very close behind
I've had the pleasure of seeing airworthy B-17, B-25, C-47, L-4, and P-51 in person, along with the P-47 and TBM Avenger

Not to throw the discussion off, but I was a little surprised to see, IF I recalled the airline correctly, a Sun Country flight leaving HPN at 2:40 AM a few days ago - given all the hooplah about noise, and the politics surrounding the airport and noise. This could get political real fast, so I'm g...Jump to post

HPN is convenient but the drive to/from the airport can get lengthy. I-287 westbound across the bridge almost always backs up from the afternoon into the early evening. Same thing going back east until late morning. AA's current arrival and departure times from DCA avoid the worst of it so you shoul...Jump to post

CommutAir flew an E145XR into SWF from IAD today as UCA3262. Now heading back to IAD as UCA3263. It doesn't appear to be United service. Charter? Maintenance test flight?

Was there noise or vibration with the lights on, or did things get smoother after they were turned off? The A320 series' folding landing lights stick out into the airflow and can produce noticeable effects above 250 knots. I think they also have a small fuel burn penalty. If not, then you may have b...Jump to post
Out of the three largest airlines by fleet size, AA is currently closest to 1,000 (894) with no large scale retirements scheduled. With 184 aircraft on order minus 27 older 738s being parked, in theory they will stand at 1,051. UA stands at 847 with some retirements on the horizon (40 752s and older...Jump to post

My smoothest so far is the A330 (specifically the -200). The 330 also lands very smooth. On my first 330 landing I didn't realize we touched down until seeing the spoilers deploy. To contrast, my roughest is the CRJ-700. That thing is like an old school bus with jet engines attached. Had me pressed ...Jump to post
John Williams goes without saying. Nobody will be able to truly replace him.

Plenty of Lufthansa aircraft still flying around with the crane inside of the yellow circle. It's been updated a bit since the original 1970s design but it's still similar enough.

Westchester County Airport (KHPN) located in New York touches the border with Connecticut.

I'm a CRJ-700 fan. Not too big, not too small. Sounds great during takeoff. Can be boarded without having to worry about jetbridges or external stairs. Has great field performance. Fixed a lot of the -200's problems. I also love the E190, but it blurs the line between small mainline jet and large RJ.Jump to post

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GzhdxSsoT0g At around 1:35 it explains how the process should be described as a "burn" rather than a "bang" since there are no explosions happening. The heat generated by this burning causes the gas to expand and drive the turbine section. This is ...Jump to post
How is the crj 550 doing on sales and on the routes? UA seems to like them. On the fleet thread it's been discussed how they intend to eliminate single-class RJs at EWR entirely, and the 550 will play a large role in replacing existing 50-seat capacity there. I can't imagine the CASM being too good...Jump to post
Not really an expectation, but before my first flight I had no idea that jet engines make a buzzsaw sound during takeoff. Sitting ahead of the engines on my first flight, I immediately fell in love with that sound.Jump to post

Some airports board CRJs with a mobile ramp that fits over the door's integrated stairs. Less steep (good for wheelchairs and the less physically able) but you feel much higher up off the ground. Having experienced both, I prefer to just climb more quickly up the integrated door stairs. I once visit...Jump to post

Sounds like you were overflown by an a220 or an a320 going to flaps 1 The A220 makes that "whale" sound which I believe comes from the combustor of the PW GTF engine.

Pre-pandemic AA operated CLT-Europe seasonally during the summer with a 1x daily A332 to many cities (BCN, CDG, DUB, FRA, MUC). Anecdotal evidence, but when I flew CLT-CDG-CLT back in 2019 the loads were decent but not completely full. RDU-CDG isn't surprising since there's a good amount of French b...Jump to post
