The correct plural would be 'vertical loops' as the correct term for the aerobatic maneuver, colloquially known as 'loop the loop,' is 'vertical loop'.
The pilot executed three vertical loops in succession, followed by a stall turn and then one further vertical loop.
As for the regulations it was not necessarily a Commercial flight, possibly just a mate who offered to fly and they split the costs, completely legal in that aspect, Actually, it's not. There's no PPL cost-sharing allowed on non-EASA registered aircraft. Flying an N-Reg on an US license also makes ...Jump to post

Never is not a word I'd use, it's always possible BUT. Windows On the World as it was won't be coming back due to cost concerns and lack of support.
Besides, One Dine, One Mix and One Cafe, are now located at One World Observatory where they were to be housed.

If you wait few months you'll always find a better setup/better cards/etc etc. Doesn't matter what you plump for, it's always going to be usurped within a matter of weeks.

I have to ask, was the Brexit Referendum actually binding or even really allowed per UK law ? Would a new Referendum be binding and legal as well ? .

I think you're missing the point, an FTA with the EU means following the EU's rules.

You do know that a FTA usually comes with a supra national body which rules in case of trade disputes?

Fact: The US pays the 4th highest average wages (mean, but 6th in median household/personal income) of any country in the World.

I would rather re-establish Northolt as a civil airport. Kick the military out of there, they can do their business at other places just as well.

It helps when you ask a question and you can at least identify the airplane you are talking about.

Maybe some convoluted old school system where the windshield heat was provided by an 'old style' blowing demister (like cars) where the heat was weirdly provided by bleed air?
I can't see where it'd be used on a electrically heated windscreen, either with wipers or hydrophobic coating.
Being in the EU does come with limitations to your sovereignty. As does every other deal you do with another nation. From having to meet standards for your budget to needing to confirm with common standards. The standards are indeed useful, but the EU cannot force a member to comply with them. Ther...Jump to post
But on the other hand I do understand the desire to take back control and regain a position of full sovereignty.

Does anyone have any experience with the Gulfstream bleed air method for clearing the windshield? Is it better/worse than wipers? Bleed air?

Perhaps not overkill if there is a time sensitive nature to the target.
