  1. I was at the CAE YYZ facility in January. In the lounge was a coffee-table book on the history of CAE. Didn't get a chance to read the whole book but what I could proved very interesting.
  2. Fun airplane to fly the Buck-72. For the record, the C150 was not a factory taildragger. There was/is a conversion called the "Texas Taildragger" available.
  3. Humans are explorers 'Nuff said....
  4. Kind of defeats the purpose of deice fluid if it were to freeze, don't you think?
  5. My first thought as well, deicer.....;)
  6. I like to think those BIG numbers (and sometimes a letter) aren't painted on a runway just to designate its magnetic heading. They're also useful as a confirmation that one is actually landing on the appropriate runway...
  7. Always liked this paint scheme...
  8. Just to nitpick but an engine can only fall "out" of an airplane if it was in the cargo hold. Engines can and have been known to fall "off" airplanes. Just sayin'.....
  9. If you guys have a better solution to create electricity to satisfy the ever increasing demands being put on the system by everyone, don't keep it a secret. There is no perfect method in current use.
  10. Just think of the amount of power being generated right up to the point of self-destruction....
  11. I like the mag compass. It's the one piece of equipment common to most airplanes. Call me old-fashioned....
  12. Maybe so but they created some happy memories for 3 young women.
  13. Good. I can scratch that off my list of "Things to Worry About"...
  14. Majority of passengers aren't paying any attention to FA's and safety announcements now. No good can come from this...
