Re: Mud swerves a plane

I have this strange urge to take this sequence of words: "An even drag both wheels, but no swerving tendency at that speed. Slowing up adds weight to both main wheels, but probably, sometimes, unevenly. One carves in muddy! steers it abruptly! even letting go of braking ON THAT DIGGING SIDE ......

Re: Plane takes off with concrete tie down attached in Kelowna.

I've heard stories of this sort of thing forever. Documented stories? Not so many.

Technically all crashes are on touchdown.
These guys might argue that, technically:

Re: Trauma reducing bucking bars. Worth it?

I’m sure they’re nice if you’re bucking rivets all day in a factory where the fuselage or wing or whatever is still wide open and free of all those bothersome system components that get in the road of every last rivet you need to buck when performing a typical in service repair. If you’re a general ...

Re: Rocket crash

Given the staggering amount of thought, time and effort that went into this endeavor, I’m not sure it even falls into the general Darwin Awards category. This feels like a whole other level, well beyond the usual spur of the moment “Watch this!” Darwinian elimination sort of actions we often read ab...

I wonder how much more of the airframe is bent or broken. Never seen one break just like that before.

I presume the Beaver wing was removed after tangling with the Otter, not somehow sheared clean off?

Re: Asymmetric reverse

I hope you're using two hands to drive your plane too! :D You’re not using two hands for differential power. At least you shouldn’t be. Differential power is all a Cat has... not so for a plane. All the new iron would prepare you for now is to drive an Airbus or a fancy new Global anyway: http://ww...

Re: Asymmetric reverse

Maybe a summer of Cat skinning should be a prerequisite to flying a plane with reverse thrust? You'll never pull a lever the wrong way after a thousand hours on a D6.

Re: Encore wrinkles a Dash-8

I've seen lightning strike the ramp area of an airport just once. Physics chose a spot in the vicinity of a sewer grate 200 feet from any above ground features over all the assorted aircraft, buildings, antennas, light standards, etc. surrounding it.

Re: Proposal for Canada and Australia to share water bombers

Nobody's brought up Buffalo putting a 215 on a ship to Korea rather than ferrying it there. (as depicted on a couple Ice Pilots episodes) I wonder how that worked out for them in reality? Anyone know if they did that with any other aircraft?

Re: KENN BOREK in MIAMI (OPF)

They've been involved in LIDAR bathymetric survey around the US coastlines for years. Pretty sure the Basler is one of the platforms they use on that program.
