  1. Yes, well, if you look carefully, you’ll notice TWO photos. In the second photo the phone is “flipped” over. It can’t do many other tricks, and even flipping usually requires assistance; however, if you leave it on vibrate long enough, it can flip over on its way off the counter. This usually leads to the put-the-phone-back-together game, which is one of the only games available on this fine unit. Of course, there is the snake game which comes in handy while waiting in line for mediocre food & drink at Tim Horton’s or when you’re just bored of the bland scenery while driving along the 401.
  2. Why are they assuming she’s responsible for transmitting it to him? Given the timeline of all the people in POTUS’s circle being tested positive, it’s more likely to have been spread at the gathering to introduce Judge Barrett as the nominee for the Supreme Court.
  3. Just curious.... With full nose-up trim, what Gz load would you get at minimum-clean speed? Does the emergency checklist make any mention of using bank angle to help prevent excessive AOA in the event of a pitch up?
  4. 2020 Terry Fox Run complete! What a great feeling to do this each year. For complete results and to get the skinny on things such as “how long did he run without stopping?”, “was there any flesh-to-asphalt contact?”, “how long was that train anyways?”, “did he really outrun that bear?”, “what was his iPod playlist?”, ”were those thigh-to-fender encounter(s) painful?”, and “what’s really in that water bottle?”, please type into your browser and make a small donation in support of this important cause. Thank you.
  5. There are so many great lyrics written by Neil. I’ve had some others tell me the link doesn’t work, but so far it has only happened on some mobile devices. Please try using typing into your browser and hopefully that will work. Thanks for letting me know.
  6. I'm participating in the 2020 Terry Fox Run. Dear AEFers, For the 12th year in a row I am proudly supporting The Terry Fox Foundation in its ongoing work to fund innovative and progressive cancer research programs by taking part in The Terry Fox Run. Despite the global pandemic situation the run will take place this year although the format will be different than usual. Sadly, the customary large gatherings of Terry Fox participants will not be happening; however, individuals and their teams will be getting together in accordance with local health guidelines to participate and
  7. $30,000/hr. Afterburners are really expensive to use!
  8. If you can find them, these books are well worth the $$$. Great stories and stunning photos!
  9. Very true. Spatial orientation also plays a role in the outcome of an ejection. For example, a friend of mine was killed after a successful ejection when the seat came through his parachute from above after seat-man separation, tearing the parachute and striking him in the head. It is believed he became disoriented after losing sight of lead while in formation in cloud and had to jettison the aircraft. Until that accident, it had never crossed my mind that the seat could become a deadly projectile.
  10. FWIW, there are NO labour codes/protections for expat pilots. You go along to get along or you'll be sent along. You're not there to change culture. You're there because 1) there aren't enough locals to fill the seats, and 2) for the money. As soon as one of those change, you'll move along or be sent along. "Report(ing) it" won't change a thing other than you'll likely need to polish up your CV while the locals laugh hysterically at your vain attempt to change the system while counting their bribe money from the latest round of pilot applicants. It's a tough world out there!
  11. FWIW, on the A340, the outer levers were latched (couldn't be moved beyond idle reverse) until the inner reversers were fully deployed. So those "switches" can be prevented from moving if necessary. That said, I don't recall the A320 having any such mechanism.
  12. FWIW, I recently used this method and the CC (AMEX) refunded my money. So it does work, although I have no idea the overall success rate.
  13. FWIW, "Super Hornets" are F-18 E & F models. Canada has the old A & B models. They are substantially different airplanes.
  14. Someone should inform this “reporter” that there’s no such thing as a CF-18 Super Hornet.
