Re: 75yrs of the DC-3

I understand that the times have changed and there are turbines being put on the DC-3. It makes sense as they are more reliable and easier to maintain. If this is what it takes to keep them in service, so be it. But being a warbird guy, it just doesnt look or sound right to me. There is nothing qui...

Re: Privately Owned MiG-29

Just once I'd love to hear ATC say "make your speed 1100 KIAS for spacing..." Heh. Not likely. A few years back an F-18 dropped a sonic boom on Ottawa during departure. What a fuss that was. I actually heard it, and couldn't understand what all the fuss was about. During his time at Chatham, my fat...

Re: Is this what flight training has come too?

I don't know if you'll like this story but it's a favorite of mine. I remember before I started flying talking to a guy taking lessons and he excitedly told me about the account system this FTU had. They would match his money on account thus doubling his account's worth. Put $2000 in and you would h...

Re: City urged to keep vintage aircraft YYC - Mosquito

Hedley; I don't want my ego stroked and I'm not going to do low level aerobatics without proper training followed by getting high level experience until I am competent and confident enough to be completely convinced I won't be bending an airplane. I trust your assesment of the need to keep positive ...

I'm pretty sure I'd need someone else to pour the iced tea. Hedley, I suspect you're not the kind of guy that cares what us "idiots" think but maybe people would warm up to you a bit more if you didn't have to be so harsh on dead guys. I realise he shouldn't have been in that seat and clearly he mad...

I might be way off but I think airship tech has improved slightly beyond tying four worn out modified helos to a bag with scafolding. Gosh what could have caused vibrations in that setup? :|

Re: City urged to keep vintage aircraft YYC - Mosquito

I'm no aerobatics pilot but in the video it seems to me the plane rolled and is inverted for way too long just before things go wrong inducing the spin, I'm guessing because of the yaw from losing an engine at such a high power setting?

Re: Freezing rain anyone?

Those parachutes that shoot out the top and let the plane float down must make it ok to go take a quick jaunt through it, yeah?

I'll just go ahead and be sad because of the mean things said to me while I'm waiting until they don't forcast freezing rain to fly home thanks.

Re: City urged to keep vintage aircraft YYC - Mosquito

I gots 300 hours 172 & warrior. I should be just as good as the guys I heard about going over seas with 5 hours solo time to fly spits. I'm not skeerd, they won't even be shooting at me, le' me at 'em!

Ok I'm kidding but I'm not afraid, if I had the money I'd get type checked on P-51
