RE: Waterproof Laptops

Toughbook's are amazing The new Marine Corps aircraft squadrons use them a lot i.e. MV-22, C-130J. And if Marines can't break them very easily i'd have to say it's a good product.

RE: Why The P-8 Designation?

It Has a different designation because it has a different mission and the equipment on board the A/C will be different i.e. computers, radars.

Most A/C with the "C" designation have a primary mission of cargo transport, while I believe the "P" is a Navy designation for a Maritime Patrol A/C.

RE: The F-4 Phantom Turns 50 Soon...

It is an amazing milestone for an remarkable aircraft. Here in Okinawa you can constantly see and hear F-15 and F-18's but they will never come close to the thunderous Roar of the Japanese F-4's based at OKA.

RE: Airlines We Love To Hate

IMHO i would have to say <acronym title="Delta Air Lines (USA)">DL</acronym>. I was always happy with their service and performance until about a year and a half ago. The First time I went through ALT. My first flight was late out of <acronym title="Pensacola - Regional (PNS / KPNS), USA - Florida">...

RE: Fly One Aircraft That's Still In Commerical Sv

I know Aloha was the last US carrier to fly them on Commerical PAX service, somewhere they still have to be in use. 737-200. OR. Another Trip on a TRISTAR will do just fine.

RE: Long Takeoff Roll

Last Spring I remember we had a C-5(FRED), Carrying a couple <acronym title="Bemidji Airlines (USA)">CH</acronym>-46's and equipment use almost 8500' of the 9000' runway. The <acronym title="Ansett Australia">AN</acronym>-124's where air born by about 7500' IIRC. Quite Impressive and a little nerve ...

RE: High Wing Vs. Low Wing

Most of these points have already been brought up. Just my thoughts. The higher wings on Military cargo aircraft allow for 1. Landing on unimproved runways, helps to prevent FODing out engines. 2. On a/c such as the C-130 it also allows for 13'+ props to still maintain a good amount of ground cleara...
