I knew I smelled flamewar when I entered the forums today. Real quick, the Bible talks about a few times when "Man laid with Man, and did unnatural acts, and it was an abomination to the Lord", or somthing to that effect. Its quite clear that God is not a fan of homosexuality, that much is obvious. ...Jump to post
Maybe Ill take you for a ride in my cessna, and we will do some softfield takeoffs, and I will wack the tail on the ground a few times. Honestly, its nothing to worry about. The only "emergency" that comes from a tailstrike is the painters need to buy more paint for the tail. Thats all. And your fea...Jump to post
Tailstrikes are nothing to have a fear about. You should see the tail tie downs on my flight schools Cessna 152s. The (previously) round tie downs are all scraped up and oval shaped now due to repeated tail strikes from students doing soft field takeoffs. Tail strikes happen, its part of being human...Jump to post
Hey KaiTak, Ive never been able to catch the British depart since, as you mentioned, it is so late in the evening. When I do catch it, Im on top of the parking garage which, although gives you a great overview, doesnt give you the sense of power you mention. That spot just north of 26, the dirt road...Jump to post
I have a Saitek X45 (both joystick and throttle), and I have a problem with it that I dearly need a solution to. On the throttle there is a "mode" switch that has 3 notches. I dont know what this does, nor do I care as I never need to use it. But, the problem stems from this switch. On some of my ga...Jump to post
Capt078: I dont think I would call it "tactless". I really appreciated the visuals, personally.

Ah, nice job B2707SST.
And I need to start reading whether someone has specified MPH or KTS.
After a quick search on Google for "Concorde Rotation Speeds". I found a few articles and info sites that showed the Concorde rotation speed to be about 180-190 kts.
Not quite 250kts, but still a pretty good clip.
It really doesnt say what rotation speed is, [email protected]. Emirates, 737s, 757,s etc... usually rotate anywhere from 130-160 kts, depending on many conditions. I cant get into too much detail, because of all the variables that are taken into account, but that should give you a general idea. Concorde...I ...Jump to post
When I first found this, the first thing I thought was "People need to see this". I dont know why, but I really felt like I needed to give as many people a chance to see this as possible. And, judging from the views on this thread, I think thats been done.
Man, I cant believe how much this audio and animation gives me the chills. I mean really, my whole body just gets chills when I hear ATC start to get anxious.

That first class ad is right in the middle of my screen on the main page. It is so obstructing, that its the only thing I can see, basically. Its REALLY making the front page look bad by having a GIGANTIC tower ad in the middle.
Is it supposed to be that way? Or is my computer showing it wrong?
I was just browsing around, when I stumbled upon this animation, showing the events and actions of ATC, flight 93, and the surrounding aircraft, on September 11th. Whoever put this little animation/movie together seems to have put alot of time into this. I find it very interesting to watch. And befo...Jump to post
OK, once and for all, the DC-10 DOES NOT have "down sloped" wings. They just appear to droop when on the ground because of the weight of the wings, fuel, engines, etc...
I dont know why the drooping is more pronounced on the DC-10, but it most certainly is not anhedral that you are seeing.
In my experience with 757s, <acronym title="Royal Air Force (United Kingdom)">RR</acronym> engines do seem to have a more pronounced "Buzz-saw" noise.

I dont feel that the current airplane up there <i>needs</i> to be changed, But I would like to see it revamped a bit.

I hold the view that baptism is NOT required to be saved. Belief, acceptance, and repentance are the only requirements that need to be met to become a part of Gods eternal kingdom.
