  1. Stunning shot and love the paint job. Hope you have a large print of that on the wall of your cave.
  2. I know, there is always someone who want to up the ante but, the required test in Maui was $US 180. We were triple vaccinated and aware before we left that it was a bit of a risk when you enter the US with a relatively simple test and have to take a much more sensitive one to come back, getting stuck there in quarantine would have been a very unwelcome bill. I realize no one forced us to go and jurisdictions set their own standards so Caveat Emptor I guess, just as long as the rules are available, understandable and can be relied upon.
  3. For the -32 at AC the preferred T/O flap option was slats/ flap 15 degrees followed by slats/flap 5 and then slats/ flap 0, in that order as required by WAT limits. The slat/flap selector was operated as a single lever, (first detent slats only), but could be split by removing the bolt that combined the two. Slats/flaps 0 T/O was only needed at close to MTOW and high temps and needed a long runway, the T/O speeds were pretty high. I can't really see from the images if the slats were extended but if not I believe they should have got a config warning.
  4. Not all, AC's first six aircraft were -15s and had no slats. Subsequent deliveries were -32s and had LE slats. The -15s came in late 1966 and the -32s came in June 1967 and so on. I would be surprised if the accident aircraft did not have slats.
  5. So enough people knew of a need and obviously had the "Go Ahead" to develop and incorporate the "Important change" before Forkner became aware of it in late 2016. Who would they be and where are they in the chain of responsibility for MCAS? Sounds like Forkner should have some co-defendants to keep him company. Not saying he is Lily White in this but he sure looks like a lonely scapegoat.
  6. So vaccines work then, right? Well, I'm thinking Polio and Smallpox vaccines seem to have controlled two serious ailments that were devastating to those who contracted them. BTW ask someone who is recovering from Shingles if they think it may have been worthwhile to have tried immunization. I am not saying the vaccine is guaranteed but one gent I know would give a lot to have been able to turn the clock backward and give it a try.
  7. And if you don't add some external fuel tanks you will not be going very far.
  8. If the current level of Ads continues I can live with it, no problem. The point about adblockers is fair IMO. (TANSTAAFL)
  9. Interesting to see the progression from early reciprocating internal combustion engines with their inherent violent movement of parts, (pistons, valves etc.), to the smooth movement of turbine type of power.
  10. Yes, I found that anything recent or perhaps in more limited availability did not have much discount, if any. Thanks.
  11. Thanks for the info, i have usually bought from the online store. Oh well, it was appreciated while it lasted although the discount did not seem to apply to the most recently released items. Thanks again.
  12. Apple made their products available to AC employees and retirees at a discount. Something similar to Edu and other corporate deals, (Starbucks and several bank's employees eg.) When I try to access the Apple site that was directed to AC employees I end up being sent to the Apple Canada site. The AC corporate rate seems to have disappeared It was not a huge discount but was welcome nonetheless. Anyone know where it went? Thanks.
  13. Seeing a report that American is suspending the sale of alcohol in Coach until sometime in 2022. Standby for increased BYOB events.
  14. Gotta agree with GDR and I have a couple of years on him.
