Re: What was your longest non stop flight?

The Catalina had an endurance of over 24 hours. The “Secret Order of the Double Sunrise” was a name bestowed to those who enjoyed a 24 hour trip on QANTAS operated Catalinas between Perth and Ceylon during the war. New video just this week. It's like this guy is trolling Avcanada looking for video ...

Does anyone know when the B-17 is leaving North Bay? I would like to catch it land in Peterborough. Nothing listed on Flightaware yet.

Re: Turbine Lancair

Yup. Owner wants to put in a Garrett! Not sure why. Even with the Walter, he gets an incredible amount of attention from Enforcement. Are there there speed limits and or regulations for certain types of pilots/planes/operations? And if so would ATC data be the only way to enforce such regulations?

Re: Big planes, small airports.

These are some really impressive landings. They got me thinking, how many of these were hand flown? With no auto thingys or NAV aids and what not? Most responders here seem equally impressed at how well these landings turned out, but over in another thread some Bananna man poster gets a new one ripp...

Re: Ice Pilots Started

So who was right? the TC guy or Joe? Is it legal to do training on empty non revenue legs? and if not, why has he been doing it for years? (at least according to the show) Or is there more to it that the show didn't explain?

Re: CIAS Toronto Air Show Schedule for Saturday Sept 1 2012

I was watching the show planes take off from the island today (monday) and they all took off to the east into the wind except for the glider tug. It took off to the south. Not sure what the wind was, but the lake had whitecaps. Whats up with that?

Re: Emergency Landing on Highway 402

So how did the plane get from the highway back to the airport? Fresh battery, more fuel, up...up...and away? Or take it apart to fit onto a flatbed? Would it fly with that damage? Would they let the guy who landed it there take it off again? Nopilot, just some guy that lives off the end of a runway,...
