Re: Aviation headset model - suggestion

Headsets are like partners: some like blondes, others brunettes - in the end, all of the top end headsets are pretty much the same, and it's all personal preference. FFS, !!DONT!! buy the $200 Amazon cheapies! in a year, you'll end up buying the headset that you should have bought now, and you'll ha...

Re: WW2 'Tallboy' explosion

what's the connection with the Dambusters? After the deluge, 617 Sqdn had a fairly large group of highly trained, and experienced aircrews around, so they were re-purposed into a force that was used on targets that required greater than usual accuracy: shipping canals, railway tunnels, viaducts and...

Not just initial training!! Every single time you fly. If I'm out a notch either vertically or horizontally on the seat, it just doesn't look/feel/fly correctly..

Re: BETTER HURRY!! THEM PPCs BE EXPIRING!!

^ Sure, but what's your bias ? Are you one of those laid-off airline guys desperately looking for a seat anywhere? As always, it comes down to the candidate...but then an employer needs to have some basis for winnowing the pile of resumes.
