It takes a long time to burn that many files. The only reason for the classification all these later are the embarrassing facts tied to names. This one conspiracy I’m a believer in, just not the wilder ones where just about every person in America was complicitJump to post
EA flew the Shuttle with Electras, also, VFR when their were ATC slowdowns. The A300B2 was standard for LGA-BOS for quite awhile, not just thrown in.

How much more crew training would be required to prepare them for formation flying? USAF pilot training was, until the T-1, pretty much a formation course with contact and instruments thrown in. The majority of T-38 flyng was formation. There’s no automated air refueling, the receivers are hand flo...Jump to post
Is it possible Everts supplied the operating crew under contract? While anything is possible, extremely unlikely. It’s possible that the crew was acting as independent contractors during their time off but it’s more common for a 91 department to type it’s existing crew if the airplane was a new acq...Jump to post

There is no government revenue problems, there is too much spending. The USG has all the money it needs, besides the left wing fashion was MMT.

In the USAF we were issued Nomex gloves with leather palms. Fighter bubbas nearly always wore them, heavies less so. The RAF drivers had neat white leather ones, that remained white for maybe six months. Never wore gloves in civilian planes, once ready to start.Jump to post

Yes, the Station club fire, another case of nothing good happens in large, pumped up crowds. So-so band, drinking and disaster. A friend is licensed to do pyro at shows, he agrees to that, it’s a job he mostly hates.Jump to post
First, latch and lock the shoulder harness. Tough to do if only two pilots, if so, get a flight attendant into the cockpit. Yes, move the pilot somewhere where access for treatment can be applied, esp if it’s a suspected heart attack.Jump to post
Any idea when Southwest would start red-eyes? Sounds like the technology is almost ready.

Any airplanes in the air must be manually managed without using the Ops di...Jump to post

Of course, the USAF has thousands of fuelers, just had haul in the number needed, plus tanker fuel in all they could and for some planes (E-4, for one), AAR. Banner moves know no limits.

Haha! I can see that one hit home! Anyway, safetywise, it is still safer than flying.

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.

I'm also in the camp that the interiors and exterior updates look fantastic. The one thing that is interesting to me.

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

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
