  1. The Cirrus had a 160 kt ground speed in the turn to final.
  2. Ahhh, but did you hug and cry afterwards.
  3. I am interested in the shoe they use. Quiet, quick and precise. I feel like going for a walk...
  4. Function over form....I guess. It is like a really bad movie where it is actually good in some respects. Definitely in the category of things that Mom loves.
  5. And if an airshow is managed well when tragedy strikes, the risk to others is significantly reduced. https://www.bst-tsb.gc.ca/eng/rapports-reports/aviation/2016/A16W0094/A16W0094.html
  6. The best thing about Darkside was that it's profits were used to fund the Monty Python and the Holy Grail production....."who is it that is so wise in the ways of science?"
  7. The prep (God awful juice) is worse than the scope. I was fortunate to be somewhat lucid and watched the monitor for a bit...weird to see your insides. Then I drifted off...it all seemed like a dream.
  8. Great collection of aviation lectures. Just watched the one on the F14 design...fantastic stuff. https://youtube.com/user/PeninsulaSrsVideos
  9. All that counts is that you like it Mitch. You don't need the internet's help to verify if what moves you is "good" or "bad". That's the great part about art. If it works for you...it is awesome! I continually use this explanation for why I am a Rush fan.
  10. ...but survive for how long? WHO data shows that the mortality rate for 5-14 year olds in India is 5x higher than for Canada. https://www.who.int/data/gho/data/indicators/indicator-details/GHO/mortality-rate-for-5-14-year-olds-(probability-of-dying-per-1000-children-aged-5-14-years)
  11. The take-off suggests it is a bit under powered...I sure hope he doesn't lose one down low! Fantastic build though.
  12. Makes the F35 the Millennial of fighters me thinks.
  13. It was called the whale fart theory. The methane bubbles idea had been tossed around as an explanation for why a ship may have sunk under mysterious circumstances. The theory being the bubbles reduce the buoyancy of the vessel. In the case of TWA, the methane was the source of the explosion when the 747 flew through it. I found a reference paper which also adds Egypt Air 990, Swiss Air 111 and AF447 to the list of aircraft that encountered a significant amount of methane while flying. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://phe.rockefeller.edu/
  14. You might as well add the huge methane bubble from the ocean floor that it flew into theory....
