    How big were those guns again?
  2. This guy is dedicated!

    That could be it!

  4. If the pilot responds with actions that are not in accordance with the guidance cues, he is not enhancing his safety.
  5. This system seems quite sophisticated, and I think the addition of any automation that could save your a$$ is a winner. Btw, this stuff isn't new, the CF-18's I worked on in 1985 came equipped with a more rudimentary version. It would activate if your yaw rate exceeded 300 degrees per second. By then, you're having fun!
  6. AC850 AND 851 DELAY DUE DENTS

    Rich; seriously, Mx needs to re-visit this "temporary repair". When this tape is first applied, there is always a "monitor" associated with it, stating that it will be re-inspected for condition periodically (every 48 hours?). Someone needs to start doing their job, which encompasses maintaining the airworthiness of the ship.

    Good Gawd! Peel that off and re-do it!
  8. AC850 AND 851 DELAY DUE DENTS

    Determination of whether a dent is "go / no-go" can be tricky, depending on the location on the fuselage, and of course it's done in accordance with the Structural Repair Manual. Since this damage was caused by impact with the bridge, then it's possible the dents are in the vicinity of the pitot-static ports, where tolerances are tighter.
  9. The F-35

    Ouch. Glad the pilot got out, although with "some" burns.

    Now that you mention it, no, I haven't. Anyway, I'm cheered up now. On my way towards the Bay of Fundy.
  11. Musings...

    Just finished watching the Snowbirds perform in the skies over sunny Barrie, Ontario. Nice show! The CF-18 did his routine first. (I really like the paint job!). I was thinking, "Meh... Bob Painchaud was more impressive when he was working on the routine in 421 Sqn in Baden.." And then I thought, My Gawd, that was 30 years ago! Where does the time go? I'm feeling a little melancholy this evening.
