  1. Great documentary. Years ago when I was a flight instructor, I had the pleasure of doing some annual refresher training with a club member who had his own v tail and who flew Spits in WWII. He told stories the whole time while demonstrating 1G aeros and when another aircraft checked in on the practise area frequency he engaged me in a contest to see who could see the hun first. The whole flight was operated at 25 squared; I could tell he wished more out of what the ol' Bonanza could give him. One of my most memorable hours spent in an aircraft.
  2. Swoop gone by the new year?
  3. A great landing if you are a Naval Aviator.
  4. There are 14 defined abnormalities and variations for the human gonosomes. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sex_chromosome_anomalies
  5. We had bagged milk in Alberta in the mid late 70's
  6. IMO, it may not be so much startle as it is escalating stress leading to poor performance. When interfacing with a system an operator has a set of expectations when an input is made. The result creates a mental model on which the next set of inputs and expected results are based. When responses from the system don't match what was expected, stress increases and depending on the individual, the stress created can go quickly into a performance reducing "choke" situation and then on to panic. Once in panic mode the lizard brain takes over and you will fight, flight or freeze. Very difficult to simulate.
  7. Looks like the Liberals are off to a good start... https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cbc.ca/amp/1.5280484
  8. You would think that making the middle seat a little higher and forward than the other two would reduce the claustrophobic effect.
  9. TSB tried a shocking video after the last 777 severe turbulence event. I guess it didn't convince too many people.
  10. ...coordinated though. Notice the amount of rudder input?
  11. Time for probably a more emotional than rationale comment, but how many 0.1 percenters in Canada have made out incredibly well on Canadian tax payer dollars over the last 30 years propping up this poorly managed company. Somebody please correct my perception to alleviate my frustration.
  12. A comparison of several aircraft types and the amount of UV crew are exposed to. ( Warning: data from a sunglass manufacturer) https://methodseven.com/blog/aircraft-windscreen-uv-see-how-you-measure-up/
