RE: Lufthansa 747-8 Retro

The A380 is like any "big boned" woman: sometimes she looks sexy, other times she looks less than flattering, and which one you get in your picture is heavily dependent on the pose, the angle, and the lighting.  <img src="http://cdn-www.airliners.net/aviation-forums/graphics/smilies/biting.gif"...

Transasia ATR-72 Crashes In Taipei - Part 1

CRAZY VIDEO!

It looks like the plane is pitched up, airspeed was dropping, and the left wing stalled more than the right, causing that wing drop. What's the stall speed on an ATR with no flaps? Maybe left engine is out, pilots not paying attention to their airspeed and trying to climb too slow?
