If Senator Helms had his way he would kick out all the non white anglos and build a huge protective dome over the United States to keep out all, blacks, Hispanics, homosexuals, communists, gypsies, Asians, mentally challenged persons, persons with physical disabilities, Democrats, socialists, enviro...Jump to post
First let me start by saying this post is meant to be light hearted and in jest. I have been a member here for about 250 days. During that time I have enjoyed reading and thinking about the endless battle that takes place between Matt D and Brissie Lion on just about every thread that they post. For...Jump to post
Hey, Slick Willy Clinton would probably vote for her. That would make him the second biggest slut to have ever been President of the United States of America and that would allow some of his good work to mentioned every once in awhile. I enjoy lots of Madonna's music and I have to admit, I think she...Jump to post
Sonic. I respectfully disagree with you as to whether or not we need the non aviation forum. Yes there are some hostile exchanges and yes some people need to mind their manners but the non aviation forum allows users to get a better idea of what some of the members here are like. There may come a po...Jump to post
Let all the hype begin. There is little chance that the game can ever live up to all the billing that it gets. Every once in awhile the game is pretty good but more times than not it is either a yawner being decided by kickers who's names most anglos can't pronounce or the game for all intents and p...Jump to post
Way cool, I think I've seen one SP in my entire life. To have three at once is pretty neat. Can anyone think of a larger gathering of SP's. Ramp shots at Boeing or all of the same airline don't count.
I have this overbearing aunt who's son, Jack Cowan is the owner of the Jack's hamburger chain in Australia. ( amongst other things ) All I ever hear about is how great this chain is. I know my cousin has worked hard since moving to Australia years ago but you would think his mother was the brains be...Jump to post
Well, I have taken the time to read all of the posts so far and I have learned that I am in a forum with a bunch of speed demons. (LOL) There are other uses for unmarked cars besides, as we refer to it in the business as, Selective Speed Enforcement. Bottom line..... I love them, those unmarked beau...Jump to post
Stop the madness. What the hell will these airlines do when one of these monster sized aircraft crashes with the loss of all on board. We all know that it will eventually happen.This is not to say the death of ten people is any less tragic than the death of 5,6,7,8 or even 900 people but there comes...Jump to post
The terminal is nice. It is not very big so you can get in and out fairly quickly. Saw lots of Mexicana 727's, F100s, Aeromexico MD's, Alaska 737, Tansa DC-3, America West 737's, Royal Airlines 727s ( gone now) , and lots more. Try to get your parents ( at least one of them ) to take you for a few h...Jump to post
I was there about three years ago. The best part if you plan on doing any airline watching is that the street runs along side of the aircraft parking tarmac. Now when I was there the fence that keeps you out had some holes in it or was bent up in other places along the concrete base. This allowed me...Jump to post
The title asks what I would like to know. For A/C used in northern climates this time of year, are there tires made that would have the same purpose as snow tires for my car, increased traction in snow and ice ?
Please don't laugh, I am just curious.
Every year in Canada, McLeans Magazine ( Newsmagazine ) ranks all of the Canadian Universitys. I believe this years was released within the last month. What you want to do is get yourself a copy of this issue and take a good look at it. You may have to get ahold of them on line in order to obtain a ...Jump to post
On the surface it is simple math and there is no doubt on a long trip you will save time even if you are stopped for 10 -15 minutes to obtain your souvenier of the state. I think the whole " it will cost you time " thing is for short term city trips where a 10 -15 minute stop will cost you more time...Jump to post
In the land of torts and courts, your next Presidential Primary will be in full swing before either side will quit demanding some level of court order a recount. If it wasn't soooooo sad I'd laugh till it hurt. Copper 1 PS. Even if the courts ordered all Florida residents to recast their ballots, a ...Jump to post
Your day is going to get worse when your insurance company finds you partially at fault just for being in your car. Insurance companies have their own set of rules for determining fault and as best I can understand it they will find you partially responsible just because you were in your car and dri...Jump to post
Matt my boy, what the hell you doing up so early? Anyway, I tend to agree with you on the seniors discount thing. Today's seniors have more disposable income than their age group has ever had and I dare say they have more disposable income than I do. Of course there are some seniors who scrape by da...Jump to post
Don't hold your breath waiting for Chretien to retire. He won with a bigger majority than he had going into this election. He will now claim that he is a man for these times. He is a big enough slimeball that he will scuttle Paul Martin who has been the leader in waiting. I believe he will stick aro...Jump to post
The only DC-8 regular user that I can think of during that period was Emery Worldwide. They are part of the CNF Company and their 8's were white with a green and red strip along fuselage. Some of them had black CNF COMPANY markings on the tail. They also have a number of all white DC-8s with very sm...Jump to post
Yes , both vehicles that I own have airbags installed. I believe that they save more lives than they take. Whenever a device that is designed to save a life , takes a life it is newsworthy. If the newspapers and other media were to tell every story where an airbag does what it is designed to do then...Jump to post
The polls open at 09:30 and I plan on being there when they open. Voting in an election is something that every citizen who has the right to do and should do. Millions of individuals died winning this right for us. I too am fed up with the pompous, arrogant, conceited, power hungry self loving littl...Jump to post
I was in Miami/Ft Lauderdale last month and one night on the news there was a big story about some private company wanting to invest tons of money into Opa Locka and restore it to an international commercial airport of considerable size.

If I had it all my fantasy flight would take place in a DC-10.

Here we have a program called Meals on Wheels. It is designed for volunteers to take hot meals to shut ins. For many of these people it is the only chance they get to have a good hot meal and maybe even a bit of company. Most of these shut ins are elderly folks who for the most part are alone.

Why do airlines put the reverse side of the American flag on the starboard side of their aircraft. I realize that when one flys a flag such as the one from the USA it will look reversed when viewed from one side( Stars in the top right corner). It would seem to me that the flag should have the Stars...Jump to post
Sounds to me like it was a Canadian Armed Forces CC-150 Polaris (A-310). They are painted a dark grey colour and have a red Canadian flag on the fin along with the Canadian roundel on he fuselage.
If I was going to bet, this would be my choice.
