  1. Hilarious. How did Radio City not bring these dancers to NYC?
  2. This legacy plane maker needs a full ‘D’ check.
  3. Some DL aircraft In Victorville
  4. A passenger seated just aft of the wing left side tweeted this: #AC837 so just at take off there was a huge bang under my seat and then I saw smoke and flames from the left engine. This pic is from a quick video I took and one frame shows the fire for a split second.
  5. Yes its not hard to imagine how a big chunk of flying tire rubber could certainly do some serious engine damage. Also the tire letting go and the engine failure /stall would have been a nearly simultaneous event. It will be interesting to hear more details of this incident.
  6. “So your meal choices are something called Wuhan Chicken, Beef Wuhan or Pork Wu. What’s it gonna be?”
  7. Interesting photos. Has it been confirmed the tire blew first? Could there have been FOD on the runway similar to the AF Concorde? There was a drone sighting issue prior to this departure. What if the left engine ingested it and the #5 MLG was cut on it’s sidewall. No damage to the #1 MLG. Something is odd about the sequence of events but I’m glad it all ended well for passengers and crew.
  8. It used to be a simple process. FAA medical, Air Law Exam (50 questions) then take results of both to nearest FAA office which for Toronto is Rochester. All type ratings transferred to the little credit card sized licence. As already mentioned it has become more complicated and expensive.
  9. Yes. Below radar coverage. However, it you’re going play around in SVFR conditions you’d better know the area your flying in like the back of your hand. Monday morning QB stuff but he should have parked it and let them Uber the rest of the way.
  10. Hahaha. Good technique. Never thought of the ‘head-first-down’ method.
  11. That quick thinking saved the plane from some severe damage. ?
  12. The only survey result that means anything is the one taken on Election Day at the ballot box.
  13. That’s the solution. Sippy cups. Label them ‘Captain’ and ‘First Officer’. The RP can bring his own.
  14. Is the skin ripped or just scrapped?
  15. Interesting piston installation. Perhaps better cooling on the outside of the cowling?
