Re: Snowbird 5 Ejected in Atlanta

In my opinion the snow birds are out dated and the equipement is boring and outdated as well. Either shut them down or update them. They seem to have taken on this mystical Canadian thing like Tim Hortons. How many social media generation people actually know who Tim Horton was. A successful ejecti...

Re: WOW Air collapses

Some hotels require a credit card for incidentals (room service, movies & internet access) and some don't. Depends on the contract with the hotel. You should never provide a credit card to hotels for incidentals on layover. When C3 and Royal went down, and crews were stranded for several days befor...

Re: What was your longest non stop flight?

C- 130...planned Dakar, Senegal to CYTR....around 14 hrs. Our planned 290kt G/S was as low as 160 kts. W/V a bit more than fcst + 100 nm track deviations due to severe wx along the ITCZ. Ended up min fuel into CYHZ after 14+ hrs.

Re: Researching grandfather's - RAF / RCAF - how/where

" The aircraft could be a Fairchild C-119 Boxcar or Fairchild C-82 Packet."

Chris......googled 426 Sqn and somewhere I thought I read "North Star " for that airlift. C-119 Boxcar was later in their history.

Re: Aerial Spraying

They spray after dark because the air is more stable and the thermals caused by the sun heating the earth are calmed down. Also the winds generally die down after dark, chemical drift is a very serious concern when applying them from an aircraft. By the way of all the jobs in aviation I had aerial ...

Being vectored by ATC at night so we could see other plane lights and telling the kids to look out the window to see Santa`s lights.....a slight deploy of the SB`s to c...
