  1. Caption the picture!

    OK, this one seems to have gone quiet so I'm going to award it to Brett. His description of engineering "agility" is pretty good. I did like the jumping tower Al posted but in the end, had to cut the cards. Take it away, Brett. John
  2. Airlander 10 maiden flight

    Can you imagine the horror - thousands of innocent victims all talking like Donald Duck? John
  3. Air Canada pulls a "Harrison Ford"

    Interesting thread here too, about "FMS Approaches", including a discussion about some airlines having private, but approved approaches. Air Canada is not mentioned in the thread (that I noticed) but it is the KSFO Rwy 28 runways that are being discussed. https://www.pilotsofamerica.com/community/threads/fms-approach.16597/ John
  4. Airlander 10 maiden flight

    They did it again. It looks worse this time. As I noted above, a fundamentally bad idea. You cannot make chicken salad from chicken manure. British Hybrid Airship Suffers Second Serious Accident https://www.ainonline.com/aviation-news/aerospace/2017-11-20/british-hybrid-airship-suffers-second-serious-accident EDIT: "The fuel and helium within the Airlander was made safe..." I sure am happy to hear all that helium didn't cause a disaster. Oh, the humanity! Where do they get these writers? JDA
  5. Air Canada pulls a "Harrison Ford"

    https://www.theguardian.com/business/2017/aug/03/air-canada-near-miss-picture-shows-how-close-planes-came-to-crashing There's a pretty good image (a pair, actually, merged into a single image) in this article. The more "evidence" I see the scarier this looks. There should be some "consequences" for this but it appears there won't be. "Accidental" loss of the CVR info and the presumption of innocence is probably going to save them, but it's hard to imagine that this was a "sterile cockpit" with two minds intent on the business at hand. I'm speculating, of course, but I strongly suspect that there was some kind of distraction in progress that should not have been permitted. A 20,000 hour and a 10,000 hour pilot with their game faces on could not have let this happen. Someone knows more than he's saying and the reason he's not saying it is to preserve his career, which is understandable at some level. John

  7. FSW - Planned Developments

    Roger that, Sam - welcome aboard. John
  8. FSW - Planned Developments

    It seems safe to assume they meant "...all too aware...". I love ironic typos. John
  9. Same question. Does anyone in that photo look angry with the president? Al, when you're in a hole, stop digging. John
  10. Extreme Water Cooling!!!

    My PC is already immersed in a non-conducting fluid. It's called "air". John
  11. It has been - to him. His personal carbon footprint is only exceeded by the wealth this stuff has brought him. John
  12. Why would the president want to smack my son-in-law in the mouth? John
  13. The tall guy on the lower right, behind the short girl with glasses... John
