    President Trump is walking out of the White House and heading toward his limo, when a possible assassin steps forward and aims a gun. A secret service agent, new on the job, shouts “Mickey Mouse!” This startles the would be assassin and he is captured. Later, the secret service agent’s supervisor takes him aside and asks, “What in the hell made you shout Mickey Mouse?” Blushing, the agent replies, “I got nervous. I meant to shout, “Donald, duck!” John

    You lot are slowing down - nothing since Feb 3! Here's a cute one: Test: Seven advantages of mother's milk Students in an advanced biology class were taking their mid-term exam. The last question was, 'Name seven advantages of mother's milk.' The question was worth 70 points or none at all. One student was hard put to think of seven advantages. He wrote: 1) It is perfect formula for the child. 2) It provides immunity against several diseases. 3) It is always the right temperature. 4) It is inexpensive. 5) It bonds the child to mother and vice versa. 6) It is always available as needed. And then the student was stuck. Finally, in desperation, just before the bell rang indicating the end of the test, he wrote: 7) It comes in two attractive containers and it's high enough off the ground that the cat can't get it

    A policeman was rushed to the hospital with an inflamed appendix. The doctors operated and advised him that all was well, however, the patrolman kept feeling something pulling at the hairs in his crotch. Worried that it might be a second surgery and the doctors hadn't told him about it, he finally got enough energy to pull his hospital gown up enough so he could look at what was making him so uncomfortable. Taped firmly across his pubic hair and private parts were three wide strips of adhesive tape, the kind that doesn't come off easily... if at all. Written on the tape in large black letters was the sentence, "Get well soon, from the nurse you pulled over last week."

    I find if I want to learn something I am consumed by it and I am a sponge for obsorbing info as long as the subject is something I find interesting, try explaining something I find boring and I switch off......I also rewrite the tutorials on these aircraft, I can usually condense down to about 4 double sided laminated pages, I know it's weird but it makes it so much easier for me.....currently learning Ifly 747.......

    My friend has been admitted to hospital. She was poisoned by eating a daffodil bulb that she thought was an onion. The doctor say she'll be out in the spring.

    I generally give these things a week or so to see what develops and to let the mad rush on their servers diminish a little. A wise old pilot once said, "Never fly the A model of anything." I think that might apply here too - let others beat the brush for a while and see what comes out. Windows 8/8.1 serves as a great example. John

    A group of Canadians were travelling by tour bus through Holland. As they stopped at a cheese farm, a young guide led them through a process of cheese making, explaining that goat’s milk was used. She showed the group a lovely hillside where many goats were grazing. These, she explained, were the older goats put out to pasture when they no longer produced. She then asked, “What do you do in Canada with your old goats that aren’t producing?” A spry old gentleman answered, “They send us on bus tours.”

    Later on the Wapiti was stretched and had a modified undercarriage to become the Westland Wallace. Two of which were converted still further to achieve the trans-Everest flight. They stayed in service until the early 1940s being used in the training and target towing roles. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Westland_Wallace

    Has a nice sexy staggered wing, great edits there Alan, thanks for the look. I read that they left out a two foot section of the fuselage when they build the prototype and it flew so bad they had to modify it with a much larger tail and horn balanced ailerons before they noticed the mistake, It worked so well they never bothered going back to the original design and I'm glad they didn't because it turned out to be a good looker.

    Don't forget we'll have our very own MEBAR over the Easter weekend, we need a massive crowd this year. Our route has been set but and have a twist in the rules this year, it's going to be fun, so if you find yourself free for another GA challenge..fly Mutleys! http://forum.mutleyshangar.com/index.php?/forum/81-mebar-series/

    Just...wow. So, forgetting that basic detail seems ridiculous...even unbelievable to some extent. Like Alan I turn them on for Every Flight, because it gets cold up there every flight regardless of how warm it is down here. With actual snow on the ground and poor weather ahead all around...I just don't believe it. I agree that human error is possible, but that sounds implausible for even inexperienced pilots in the typically horrendous conditions encountered in winter in Russia. Because we all watch crime dramas and can write a plausible fictionalized account of this event...: (Hello, the reason for this call is we have your lovely daughter Mishka. Say goodbye to your daddy Mishka before his flight dear. We have your attention, good. We have a question for you; would you prefer for her to say goodbye to you, or would you rather say goodbye to her...Leave the pitots off if the former, have a nice flight if the later. Good day comrade. Click)

    Hello everyone After 7 months I talked about my Islandair Company. The company has had a massive growth, -New destinations like the Faroe islands, Ireland and Iceland with a stop in Aberdeen have been added. -2 new bases have been opened: Cork and Aberdeen -Services to Guernsey Airport EGJB and Alderney Airport EGJA have been terminated as we retire the Dorniers and DHC-7. -Our fleet has been expanded to 7 ATR 42-600s (5 pax and 2 Cargo) The airline has become self-sufficient by itself and there is little for me to do. So 2 months I've decided to start a new airline on Career mode, without a real base flying point to point. I started out small in the Cessna 172, from EGTB Wycombe Air Park only to never return. (except to get the C185) Once I had the money, I sold the C172 and got the C185 which I used daily for 15 days straight. Fast-forward to now and I'm currently parked at LIRA Rome Ciampino Airport in my QW Bae 1460-300QT which I acquired just 2 days after selling my Q400 I had used for almost 2 weeks. I did have to swallow my throat seeing the difference in fuel burn ( around 750L/h more at optimal efficiency). (built a temp base in EGHH to get the Bae 146-300QT, already demolished) Now I have a question for you guys. What is a good airport to call "home"? Here are some requirements for the airport (can be slightly "bend"): -ILS -Min ~7000ft runway -Minimal RFF6 https://www.icao.int/safety/Lists/RFFCrashCharts/AllItems.aspx -I prefer near or in the Alps, but a nice channel hope is nice too. I had my eyes on LOWK Klagenfurt for a while, but maybe there are better options. High speed, Low drag Sincerely Ivan

    When I was at sea we had to learn to read the skies at all times as it was always best to spot an incoming storm before it hit the ship. I have photos of waterspouts in the bay of bengal, a cyclone in the malacca straits and went right through a hurricane in the Atlantic. One of the worst things though was a massive Haboob (sand storm) in the red sea. The stuff got everywhere and it took weeks before every last bit of sand had been cleared from the ship. The sand shotblasted some parts of the ship and scoured windows and ports. It got into air intakes and even reached the engine room. It jammed one of the radar scanners caused damage all over place. The weight altered the stability of the ship for a while which was a tad worrying. Thankfully I only ever experienced that once in my career but that was more than enough!!

    It looks like this update is causing a few problems with existing aircraft and scenery so we're probably best holding off updating until developers update their products.

    I doubt it was airframe ice, at least any ground accumulation. He made it to 6,000' and was in level flight there. I'm leaning toward the idea of pitot ice, which may have begun on the ground, but once he was in IMC its effect on his flight instruments became critical. John

    What was the pilot thinking about when he declined de-icing? Given the conditions as evidenced on the crash site photos, my money is on icing.

    There's video of the impact fireball from quite a long distance but no indication of any smoke or flame prior to the initial fireball on that. Can't rule it out definitively but no mention of it on PPRUNE. They are indicating also that there is no evidence of any kind of in-flight break-up, reinforced by the shape of the debris field and given the flight path, they don't consider it likely any tail-feathers came off before impact. Occam says loss of control in clouds, consistent with bad airspeed and V-V data, but still speculative, of course. John
