I have had somthing similair to what I think you are mentioning. In my case it went away in a day or so. It is probably just a food particle like JetService mentioned.Jump to post
I agree 100% with Scooter, over the wing photos show why a lot of us fly, the view. I disagree with your comment that those photos dont bring questions and disscussions regarding the airfoil or other technical questions regarding the wing. Thats not why we take photos! We take them, and look at them...Jump to post
Pitot heat is exactly what is says, heat for the pitot tube. The pitot tube is a tube that air enters into to gauge airspeed and in some cases vertical speed( I believe in gliders). But turning on pitot heat heats up the tube so that it will not freeze over in icing conditions. If it does freeze ove...Jump to post
Thirtyecho- we all know that at sometime there was a case where that has happened, its rare, but has happened, but absolutly not in the conditions that the story was set in. And even in clear conditions, if the pilot decides to sidestep to the other runway without announcing, he is stupid. But some ...Jump to post
There should be no reason why he is landing in the opposite direction. Even in no-wind conditions, ATC will still land aircraft the same direction, they will not, according to the story, have aircraft landing one direction on 36L and taking off the other direction on 36R.Jump to post
Finally!! After a drought of about 5 months, I have finally raised my photo count to 35! I learned one thing because of this upload, When you preview the large version of the photo you just uploaded it looks horrible, but It looks a whole lot better when you view it when it gets to the database.

What I do when I go flying in my C152, after doing stalls and steep turns, and I start to feel like barfing, I just take a deep breath and yell at my stomach, not out loud, but in my head. I ask it why the heck its doing this, and if it wants me to throw up in front of my instructor, and I say, just...Jump to post
All the places that Tango-Bravo suggested are wonderful places and I spot there everyweekend, but, another good/great place to spot is on the south side of the airport just west of the FedEx and UPS cargo area, it is called Cutter Aviation, a good FBO, and it has an upper deck part that is great for...Jump to post
You dont even have the bible in your house?
Than how in the world can you make a huge statement about how God doesnt care, God isnt smart, ect... if you dont even have the bible much less read it, to find out what it really DOES say?
I Love that Simpsons Episode!!

Hello Air Orange, Could I ask you where you get your aircraft schematics for your liveries? I have looked at the Boeing and Airbus websites, but cant seem to find a big, blank, aircraft schematics to draw my imaginary liveries onto. where can I find 'em?Jump to post
Dispite what you have said, after thinking about it, the reverser malfunction seems the most resonable. I mean, 200-250 kts, one reverser opens, causes A300 to yaw wildly, aerodynamic forces cause vertical stabilizer, engine, maybe other parts, to break off. Eyewitness say that it hit the ground at ...Jump to post
How do you guys think AA will hold up after this, after all this is their 3rd accident in 2 months! Does anyone think this will signal the end for AA? A horrendous drop in revenue came after 9/11 and just when people start feeling safe again, another AA plane goes down. How will they hold up?Jump to post

Living in Glendale, I can agree with you there JTB106, those retirees always drving their golf carts around the major streets blocking traffic. One day one of the senior citizens actually flipped their golf cart and got pinned underneath it! how, i dont know. Strange people they are.Jump to post
I took an allegry test a couple months ago, and they used the little "toothpick" method. They dipped toothpick like sticks in different solutions and poke them under your skin real quick. I wouldnt say it was "painless", you could certinly feel them, but I could take it.Jump to post
LOL, people have used all kinds of words to substitute for Beefmoney, "cow-cash, pork-dough, etc.. but thats a new one.

Oh ya LAX. D-Backs are goin all the way. PHX will also see lots of extra charters and what-not.

Yankees better not get too cozy, they got the D-BACKS to deal with. GO D-BACKS!!!!!!!!Jump to post
Well folks, it looks like the yanks are coming to PHX. I say "bring it"! But I was thinking, If (when) the yankees start playing the D-Backs, will the D-Backs be looked upon as the "bad guys" because everyone seems to want the Yankees to win so New York can "heal" in a way and if the Diamondbacks wi...Jump to post

Believing in a God: all faith Believing in evolution or an "accident": all faith No matter what you chose to believe concerning the origin of the universe, it is ALL by faith, there is NO concrete evidence for any belief that will prove the other wrong.

The Diamondbacks are going to the world series in only their fourth year of existance!!! Who do you guys want to see the D-Backs go up against? Yanks or the M's? I personally want to see 'em go up against the yankees, just to see how they match up, since the D-Backs have played the Mariners before. ...Jump to post
I was flying a couple weeks ago in my 152 at DVT in PHX, I was taxing down to the run-up area and all of the sudden, a B-24 taxis in front of me! a couple seconds later, a B-17 pulls in behind me in the run up area! Let me tell you, those two birds are HUGE when you are doing a runup in between the...Jump to post
Once at PHX, I saw a cessna and an F/A-18 in line for takeoff, the cessna went first and (of course) flew about 60 knots down the entire 10,000+ foot runway, and the F-18 was sitting at the end of the runway waitng for the cessna to depart further, I was wondering wether the F-18 pilot was imagining...Jump to post
Ive had many dreams of airliners and helicopters crashing. Ive had about 6 or 7 dreams of different airliners crashing into my house, like watching a 747 flying over my house (as i do in real life) then watching its wing explode then fell straight down into my house. Then i just had a 2 dreams, one ...Jump to post
