  1. As Pat Paulsen (Smothers Brothers Show) used to say, "picky, picky, picky..."
  2. https://www.cnn.com/2021/10/19/us/texas-plane-crash/index.html Charter flight. Runway overrun on takeoff. Failure to climb. Hmmm....
  3. https://www.cnn.com/2021/10/12/world/3-degrees-sea-level-rise-climate-central/index.html Finally, after 30 years of warnings and no action to mitigate the rising sea levels, the truth be out. With 50% of the world's population living within 100' of mean sea level, it was only going to be a matter of time the reality takes over.
  4. Like others, I'm kinda impervious to the ads. If their revenues are sufficient funds for you to maintain the site, I'm good with that. Thanks for your efforts!
  5. The real and only source of "global warming" leading to climate changes: Largest underwater eruption on record spawned a new volcano (msn.com) (CO2 and acidification of oceans) How many times does it have to be said: Oceans cover nearly 80% of the earth's surface with an average, AVERAGE depth of 10,000+ feet AND that oceans affect weather, not the other way around.
  6. Standard RT is so important. It's a very poorly understood requirement of crews flying internationally. Pilots and controllers included.
  7. I remember a time when each time you clicked on a topic, a new window had to open up causing our then Admin's extra bandwidth/cost. I suggested "Why not leave the main menu at the top of the screen and split the lower half (frame) to show the post." It worked and the site has evolved ever since! (that would have been ~1998)
  8. INCIDENT: Cargojet 767 Had Tail Strike, And Flew On! - Mentour Pilot First off, is this story accurate? On takeoff, no less. Usually happens on landings with Vref too low during flare. Only thing I can think of in this instance is a gross over-rotation just slightly above or even below Vr.
  9. Now who's spreading mis-information - show your source!

  11. Couldn't agree more. Hope his minority is further dwindled.
  12. I still think it to be entirely vain to suggest humans can reverse what is happening. I might even be convinced humans have had a role in what we are experiencing, but not to the extent of what we are actually seeing. CLIMATE is a huge science, influenced primarily, I say again, primarily, by Earth's oceans. The oceans create weather; weather, over thousands of years influence/cause climate change _/-. Regarding rising sea levels, this has been a known threat for over 30 years. What have world governments done to mitigate this phenomenon that affects so many of our 8 billions who live within 100' of mean sea level? Absolutely nothing. I'm getting old and tired of this "sky is falling" discussion...
  13. I think I postulated 6 years ago on this thread (has it really gone that long??) that rising sea levels ARE HERE. What are world's governments doing to look after 50% of the world's population that lives within 100' of then sea levels? Well, if Venice wasn't the canary in the coal mine, how 'bout this - https://www.cnn.com/2021/08/01/africa/lagos-sinking-floods-climate-change-intl-cmd/index.html (spelling error!)
  14. https://www.cnn.com/2021/07/20/politics/covid-reality-check/index.html With November 2022 just over a year away, it will be interesting to see the fallout from this insanity.
