  1. Wow. That is some serious misinformation. One could easily counter each and every point in this write up from Craig Kelly. But most folks can't be bothered. "The entire rationale for wind turbines is to stop global warming"? Seriously? Immense wealth and resources needlessly sacrificed? So the world is for us to consume, the hell with the future. Scary that he is an MP. But then again most MP's can't see beyond their brief term in office. We shouldn't be surprised. I know that "in decades to come" our children will look back at our era of stupidity being the waste of our non renewables, not by how much money we could have made burning them. Back to the topic.... The wind turbines that operate in freezing precipitation obviously need a way of deicing the blades. I would suspect that the lack of deicing capability has been an economical/probability equation, not unlike the CAT III capability needed for every major Canadian airport.
  2. No. 2 reverser is open. No. 1 not. That might help it do a 180?
  3. I'd like to know how this is different than what KFC did with Greyhound Air?
  4. So how long do I have to wait?
  5. Like this? http://www.hockeycanada.ca/en-ca
  6. Unfortunately you don't see the question that Robin was answering for the reporter. I'm not going to judge anything that was written until we see that. I'm sure she already knew what she wanted to write about and just added the quotes that made good copy. I can only imagine that it was something like "So you really must be over worked and under paid?".
  7. If they are departing 24L then there will be aircraft taxiing up Alpha so landing aircraft do not have a choice to clear earlier than the end.
  8. When you see the damage a "soft and mushy" bird can do I can't imagine what a four pound LiPo battery would do. (The larger DSLR camera drones can carry that much power.) Hope we never find out.
  9. Don't see the 600 anywhere on that Av Herald report you linked to.
  10. Flight tracker says it landed around 2:57pm (18:57z).

  11. The news video clip looks more like it slid off the taxiway than the runway. 24L is grooved concrete. The taxiway isn't.
  12. So we are all getting the same calls over and over again. They must be dialling millions of numbers daily. One not so nice side effect is that they spoof using local numbers. So I often get calls now from folks saying "Hi, why did you phone me?" I didn't! So I suspect their random spoof number generator is coming up with my phone number every now and then. Agggg.
  13. Unfortunately I could not view the video. "Video no longer available"? Message on youtube.
  14. From another perspective... I live under the localizer for 11 in YYC. I don't see planes anymore.
  15. Thanks Don. Looks like full aileron deflection in that picture. Lucky they were able to keep it level.
