  1. Regardless, a well-ended story for everyone. 'Cept the geese. Eagles. Whateverrr....
  2. Once an emergency is declared, Bob's your uncle for things like this. As it was a Shanghai flight, even with the jettison that we see in the video, they were probably still quite overweight for landing. Not a big deal with the proper post-landing inspection.

  5. We may never see a reconstructed airframe due to the looters and the bulldozing of the accident scene...
  6. Iranian response: "Couldn't possibly happen as SAM's don't fly as high as 8,000' ASL." News: OIEE Tehran/Imam Khomaini airport elevation 3,305' ASL. 8,000' indicated altitude ~ 5,000' AGL. SAM'S reach much higher than that. Not to mention the automated Russian system used to fire the missiles (2).
  7. Not a nice day in Halifax. Not an unusual day in Halifax.

  10. Every Christmas eve for the last 40~ years. A Classic.
  11. Great you're still with us, Mitch! A very merry Christmas and happy New Year to you and yours!
  12. Stupid is as stupid does. Time immemorial.
  13. On the impeachment verdict of the House Judiciary committee: I think this is my first post in this lengthy thread. Now that the committee as voted to send their decision to the full house of Congress, and the probable vote to formally impeach DJT, the matter will proceed to the Senate for a trial. I understand each and every one of the 100 Senators must swear an oath to follow the facts and not to pre-judge the outcome. Given McConnell's promise to act in concert with White House (Presidential) lawyers throughout the process up to and including the final verdict (which seems to be a foregone conclusion), is that not akin to a judge in a jury trial, and the jury itself, combining all their efforts in the defense of the accused? Assuming the conviction fails (less than 67 Senators convicting POTUS of the charges), could individual Senators be charged with perjury for having violated their oaths to remain impartial? What a mess.
