TWA was famous for individualizing their cockpits. Boeing would build almost anything you wanted didn’t help. You should have seen early bizjets, say early ‘80s. The chief pilot could build just anything imaginable—INS and VLF Omega, sure. Light switches on the panel instead of the overhead, why of ...Jump to post
I'm also in the camp that the interiors and exterior updates look fantastic. The one thing that is interesting to me. In the Delta concourses they have TV screens up at each gate running along the hallway to show where the flight is going. The interesting thing is the font they use is the same font...Jump to post

I was just there this week, never noticed. I arrived, went to the next gate, got a coffee and boarded the next plane to my destination. You can’t see the outside from the concourses anyway, especially at ATL. It’s a pretty efficient people mover and that’s all that matters. Transiting next week, too...Jump to post
Interesting to see some of his teammates and former coaches are offering their “thoughts and prayers” to Ruggs… Teams and the league need to get away from that mentality, as it softens the blow.

Was there an exemption for Houston on the 250 knot rule? Oops, I do remember that test program. Lots of spills out the sides of Class B airspace in Houston, so I think it was not enacted elsewhere.

Technically, the take-off path ends at 35’ above the end the scheduled take-off distance. If it’s balanced, the plane will be stopped or at 35’ OEI, which may or may not be at the DER. For example, if the runway were 12,000’ and even at reduced thrust, the accelerate/continue distance was 6,000’. Th...Jump to post

True Self Government? So now you are talking about secession from the US. Go ahead and get your state to buy into that.
Repeal the Income Tax for starts. Strictly interpret Art 1 Sec 8 enumerated powers, none of this using the taxing power to create laws that aren’t based on Section 8. If it’s not enumerated there, it’s on the states. The reason they have power is because we let them have it.Jump to post
I know it's off year and not much going on. I feel Murphy has done well in NJ (wish he was NY Governor) and will be re-elected rather easily. All eyes on Virginia as it seems the state may elect a Red Governor. I do think Biden's horrible year is playing into this election and it will be interestin...Jump to post
It’s not a delay. Typically, but type dependent, Vr and Vlof are split by about half the difference between Vr and V2. The plane has to accelerate, under the added drag of being partially wing borne to liftoff. Quads usually take longer to liftoff, less relative thrust and greater momentumJump to post
That’s modern legal defense—try it in publicJump to post
It’s a certainty that the armorer isn’t the one paying or employing the legal counsel. The production company and possibly their insurer has a strong interest in defending her.Jump to post
The rudder is the control for maintaining coordinated flight and nothing wrong with using for that purpose. Uncoordinated flight is a really bad idea in swept wing plane hence designers have included yaw dampers for virtually all of them. For all normal flight, the dampers do the job. When they fail...Jump to post

Let's hope the Dems stay progressive!! Terry McAuliffe was a moderate, old school Democrat. Americans love progressive Democrats and the Squad members. This is one election.

Speaking of the House, they added a big tax break for the rich by increasing the SALT deduction 7.25 times and subsidizing upper middle class child care.

Let's congratulate the GOP. They won on broad messages of racism, lies, and anti-educational agendas in an off election year. It will probably create more firestorms going into 2022 and 2024.

In my experience, he is. Lots of local NRA instructors are busy giving courses. Headlines aplenty when there’s an accidental shooting.

There was almost no system in that plane that you couldn’t work around a problem.

It was 11 hours, normally half that. Max speed with a gear hanging was about 220 knots about F200. Gear Mach limit was the limit. IIRC, only one leg was hanging the rest were retracted. We could individually extend and retract gearsJump to post
Questions about the horizontal stabilizer tank: 1) on planes that had/have the horizontal stabilizer tank, is that used primarily for feeding the APU? ; 2) How do they fill the tail tank? Is it through the ports on the wings or is there a separate filling point? Thanks for any responses to these qu...Jump to post
