I'm told flight attendants "crop dust" a cabin on occasion. (Fart while walking down the aisle.) And then there's the legend of the "biffy bath." I don't know the details as I know about it third hand. Something about telling the new ramp guy to look up the lav chute, if there's no indicator light b...Jump to post
(sigh) I've made it very clear. I will not continue to bore everyone else for your benefit. You've proven yourself someone who simply enjoys the act of argument. It's even in your profile under hobbies. Unless you have a comment that supplements the discourse of this topic, I am done debating you. G...Jump to post
<i>You want to watch a plane crash that killed hundreds? Idiots. Exit Row, you can go on about freedom of speech, but why do you really want to watch a plane crash that killed hundreds? For what reason? Morbid interest, it's the major reason which you probably won't admit to yourself. I'm just amaze...Jump to post
A public comment like that deserves your own advice.
Let's move on.
N202PA, <i>Okay, let's talk about this. You mentioned in an earlier post the NTSB's long-standing policy of never releasing CVR tapes to the public. Would you have them do this as well? </i> Point taken. Transcripts? Yes. And only parts deemed relevant by the FAA and at least one independent party. ...Jump to post

I'd say that's disrespect to truth.
<i>There are much more disturbing aspects of reality than the Pentagon crash.</i> I realize that. But this is a "Civil Aviation Discussion" forum. Other world topics are NOT relevant. <i>I think this is very realivant. Allow the information to be viewed by individuals interested in seeing it. For wh...Jump to post
To claim my interest is merely gory and morbid is to be condescendingly dismissive.
Read the post entirely and keep your comments relevant.
I am bothered by the indefinite confidentiality of some information that I think should be made public to a certain degree. There HAS to be footage of the AA77 hitting the Pentagon. I would venture to guess (emphasis on *guess*) that the Pentagon is probably one of the most CCTV monitored structures...Jump to post

I know this is just semantics, but I just want to say I **detest** the word "artsy." Not sure if that stems from the fact that it is often coupled with the words like "fartsy" or "craftsy." I just find it trivializes aesthetic. Would you have walked up to Ansel Adams and said to his face, "Ansel... ...Jump to post
Quick request: If anyone makes these into stickers and puts them on their cars (or other strange places) I'd love to see pictures of them "in situ." Not an ego thing. More of a "neat-o" thing. Also, if you have any cool stories of interactions you've had as a result of them would be good to hear. As...Jump to post
Wow. I didn't think they'd go with such a low ceiling over the Return-To-Launch-Site. Spectacular photo though <img src=http://us.news2.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/p/nm/20020301/mdf143050.jpg> (Anita Barrett-NASA via Reuters) I missed the launch live. Fell asleep at T-Minus 53 minutes.

I am sitting here "burning the midnight oil" waiting to watch the Shuttle launch and remembered an old question I never had answered. Has the (current) entire Space Shuttle fleet ever been photographed together? Have all the orbiters ever been in the same location at once? I would have suspected so ...Jump to post
You can actually see more of my brother than me... but I think it still qualifies. It's a beautifully restored FG-1D Corsair at the Museum of Flight in Seattle. Great story about this aircraft. Crash landed in nearby Lake Washington and sat at the bottom for 33 years (!) before being brought up and ...Jump to post
<i>What I don't get is this "big company" attitude - who's screwing who here? Why should a big company pay more than the market rate for an image? </i> Quite the opposite actually. I'd quote a realistic price if it were a smaller client, such as a non-profit or hobby organization. $1000 to an aerosp...Jump to post
Dazed767, If it is a complete buyout, sell high. A buyout gives them the freedom to use it however they wish: Print, online, broadast, (placemats, lunchboxes... ) etc. Whatever they want.

<i>The engines are shaking all the time and also even the wings bend up.</i> Not to mention those gremlins on the wings...

Well, I am glad to see a lot of you share my feelings and like the bumpersticker ideas. I got a good response back from spotters worldwide. But, unfortunately, not enough of a response to make printing these as bumperstickers cost effective. So, instead, I've supplied all three as downloadable pdf f...Jump to post
Wow. I guess I am not the only one who feels this way. Thanks for the kind words. I have a business relationship with a silkscreener that I'll ask to price this for me.

I've had it. I'm tired of explaining what I am doing and why I am taking photos of airliners and with a long lens. Planespotting used to be very relaxing for me. Now, everytime I hear a car drive up I tense up and feel it's someone that's going to harass me about "what I'm doing with that camera." I...Jump to post
Hello everyone. I just moved to Seattle recently from San Diego. Are there any other Seattleites who know of good places to watch/photograph aircraft on take-off or final approach at Sea-Tac? In San Diego there were several wonderful spots but Sea-Tac seems to be ringed by private property and since...Jump to post
