RE: Why Women Give Drivers A Bad Name!

There is a funny joke about this in Russian - will do my best to translate: (A guy is telling his friend) Hey Igor! You will never believe what happened to be while I was driving to work today! Some crazy woman cut me off and I slammed on my brakes so hard that I cut myself with the razor in my left...

RE: Greatest General Or Admiral?

I would rank Marshall (During the war he was a General) Georgi Zhukov #1. As for Admirals I would probably put Nelson to the top of this list. Rommel wasn't that bad - just look at what he was up against! He was outmanned 2 to 1 and near the end (when the allies got reinforcements and the Germans di...

Well, I expected everyone to say Gorby <img src="/discussions/graphics/smilies/biggrin.gif" alt="Big grin"> The attitude towards him here is negative, but he did the best he could. The mess that his idiot predecessors created (except Andropov - that guy was great) was too big for him to clean u...

Best Russian/Soviet Leader Of All Time

Well, now that we have a post about the best leader of Germany, the United States and !Burkina Faso! I thought it would be only fair to start this one especially because I would like to hear the opinions of our friends in the United States. Eligible are all leaders of the Russian Empire, Soviet Unio...

IN <acronym title="Midwest Airlines (Egypt) and Aerotransportes Mas (Mexico)">MY</acronym> OPINION I do not know why the U.S. invaded a sovereign country and none of us know the answer to that question - the only ones that do are the ones that planned this invasion (Bush, Rumsfeld and their buddies)...

RE: Working In Russia

JHTango, first off, let me tell you that I am glad that you want to work at Tupolev. I am currently working there myself. It is fun and it is a great pleasure but I must warn you that Tupolev is pretty old fashioned; they gave me hell for about a month because I lived in Canada (for about 5 years) a...

RE: Russian Demo Flight

That is impressive, however I would rank this #2 after the MiG-29OVT (MiG-35) display at MAKS 2005! That was truly impressive! The MiG-29 is much lighter than the Su-27/30/35/37 so its maneuvers were something! I have never before in my life seen an aircraft do 3 somersaults in a row and recover so ...

RE: Doors Armed - Not Any More!

On most Russian carriers:

which means:
"Flight attendants - switch door to automatic (manual) and cross check"

RE: New Tu-214 And RRJ Operator!

The Tu-214 has a strengthened main gear that allows it an MTOW increase, it also has the center fuel tank (allowing Dalavia to fly it to Moscow non-stop) but it is the exact same length as a Tu-204-100/-120; you must be thinking of the Tu-204-300, which is shortened by 6 meters. If you want some inf...
