Re: You could say that ISIS is entering a zone of danger....

Is the friggin idiot who wrote that having the right to use a gun? Time to stop playing video games boys, this is the real shit! actually timel, funker is upholding a time-honoured tradition of giving a ribbing to other branches of the military. He's a CF ground pounder and you sir missed the joke.

Re: headsets

+1 for the Telex 50D. Ahramin convinced me to buy one about 10 years ago and it's been going strong ever since. I would never switch because it works so well. I use it mainly in a very noisy Pitts.

I tried a lightspeed zulu in the Pitts and it had a brain hemorrhage. Totally useless.

Re: Aerobatic flights for non-pilots?

I think you are putting the cart ahead of the horse a little. If you want to be a military officer and pilot in the CF, go for it! I wouldn't base your decision on a flight as a passenger doing aerobatics with lord-knows-who at the controls. As a regular flyer of aerobatics, I DO NOT like being a pa...

Really sad to hear. I saw the video in the link below the other day. Those guys are very brave, risking their neck to help those stranded people. Wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of ISIS right now.

Re: Crop duster gets shot at in MB.

I have to say, he has a point. The charges seem rather small compared to what could have happened had he hit the pilot or caused the engine to fail at low altitude. I am certain that if an RCMP car was shot at we all know exactly what the charges would be. I don't buy that a police officers life is...

Re: Crop duster gets shot at in MB.

When you point a muzzle at a person and pull the trigger, you're attempting to end their life. Every police officer knows this is deadly force. They don't "shoot to wound" or fire at someone to scare them off. A reasonable person that points a firearm at someone and pulls the trigger knows that it h...

It's crazy considering the "rebels" have unmarked tanks and anti-aircraft capability. It's pretty obvious the Russians are helping out in many ways.

Re: 5% per year

Really sad to hear about Mr. Cowden.

It looks like he was in an inverted (flat) spin, recovered low, pulled hard, stalled and entered a secondary spin.
