Re: how long

Also the Skytrain is on a closed circuit with very few variables ever present. It's more like a model train than a real one. It's also what, 30 year old technology? Have you looked at what they are doing in mines these days ? But ya, a complex system with 500 pilotless aircraft in close formation w...

Re: how long

As for automation for flying, CN rail still has operators. Have you ever rode the Skytrain in Vancouver ? When I was 19yrs old, got a job in a mine to help fund university, worked there for 8 months driving a haul truck, 4 on 4 off shift and I was working as flying instructor on the days off. It wa...

Re: Science-Based Alternative to Ease Quarantine Act Restrictions

The original intent of the lock down in March was to give the healthcare system time to prepare for an onslaught of cases requiring hospital beds, ICU beds, ventilators, etc. That preparation was achieved months ago and now the hospitals are largely empty because the predicted rate of hospitalizati...

Re: Fatal crash at Stave Lake airstrip BC

It nosed over in the middle of the landing surface (can't really call it a runway). Nothing pointy around. So another question that the investigators will have to ask. Which occurred first, the nose over or the death ? Some of the guessing here could possibly have the cause and effect reversed.

Yes, but the US’s death rate was heavily skewed by the brutal job the Northeastern states did in April/May. Since June the death rate is similar to Canada. If you look at just the southern states, it is much better than Canada. Well, if we are going to start cherry picking data, then for the Canadi...
