  1. BNN's take on things. https://www.bnnbloomberg.ca/air-canada-transat-deal-on-thin-ice-as-deadline-lapses-1.1564135
  2. How about this for a couple of Irish sisters and their friend. Dea Matrona - BBC Ulster - Just Wanna Rock - YouTube
  3. I was one of the fortunate pipeliners to go on to the Herc. It was sure a challenge going from the Tutor/C45 on to the Herc. Fortunately I flew with some fantastic guys at 435 who had the patience to see me through. (Guys like Frank Fay, Jock Gourlay. Collin Dobbins etc.) In my last year I even had the best flying job ever instructing in the Tactical Airlift School with Frank Fay as a CO.
  4. Oh dear. Just because it is functional doesn't mean it can't be beautiful. Beautiful upswept tail, (also functional), the windows are like beautiful eyes, (also functional), the high wings are like a beautiful bird, (also functional)....need I go on. There's just never been another aircraft as beautiful as the mighty Herc.
  5. There still is nothing that matches this..
  6. I did instruct on the 320 for a couple of years and we used some fixed based simulation as well as the simulator. There is a huge difference and benefit to having full simulation. In an emergency part of dealing with the situation mentally is to be aware of aircraft movement, sounds and the whole environment of what is happening.

  11. Happy New Year to the whole AEF family. Blue side up and this year should see us with COVID in the rear view mirror. ....said he hopefully.
  12. I did something like that once bit not on purpose.
  13. I was just cleaning up old computer files and came across this. A few days late but still kinda of fun. Happy New Year everyone. Twas the night before Christmas, and out on the ramp, Not an airplane was stirring, not even a Champ. The aircraft were fastened to tie downs with care, In hopes that come morning, they all would be there. The fuel trucks were nestled, all snug in their spots, With gusts from two-forty at 39 knots. I slumped at the fuel desk, now finally caught up, And settled down comfortably, resting my butt.
