We have our next presidential candidate Well, he was mayor of Cincinnati in the late 70s, but he was born in England and thus is not eligible for the position. That said, I've heard him when he had a radio show in the past, where he wasn't doing his TV-show shtick, and he is intelligent, articulate...Jump to post
They have two TFRs (Temporary Flight Restrictions) in effect for his visit: http://tfr.faa.gov/save_pages/detail_8_6668.html http://tfr.faa.gov/save_pages/detail_8_6671.html I haven't looked at them closely enough to see why there are two, other than one lists Boston Center, the other New York Cente...Jump to post

That doesn't make sense; even before the Internet big companies had networked computer systems & companywide databases. Within the last year, I was at a local Home Depot store looking for an item. They had one, but not the size/style I wanted, even though their computer showed they had it in st...Jump to post
Most likely it was Air Horse One, moving horses after the big race this weekend. Still, that's a WAG though. .. We have a winner! N725CK arrived at BWI last Wednesday afternoon, and stayed until Sunday Noon, following the Preakness. It arrived back at BWI Monday evening, 6:42PM. https://flightaware...Jump to post

I thought this was a well known piece of information, especially on an aviation enthusiast forum I thought so as well. Covered in multiple media sources over the last 16 years. In researching an earlier post on this thread I located some great sources at the national archives. If I have time later ...Jump to post

NSP8 is Samaritans Purse, a Christian International Relief Organization that uses DC-8s to transport goods, people etc... cool to see the old girl up! It was at CLT in February, used to fly the coffin of Rev. Billy Graham to Washington, DC and back prior to his funeral. Graham's son Franklin runs S...Jump to post
this is the same plane i saw last night at GSP. They have more than one. This one came from DXB to JFK on Friday, and from JFK to CLT today. From this, it looks like you saw A6-COM at GSP: https://flightaware.com/live/flight/A6COM It arrived in GSP from DXB yesterday afternoon, and left for LAX tod...Jump to post
Has anybody heard anything about the fate of the accident aircraft? My guess is it will be a write off since it's so old and the extent of the damage. A friend near PHL posted a couple of photos on Facebook showing it with a "tent" around the forward portion of the fuselage and a spare en...Jump to post
A6-HRM arrived in CLT this afternoon, but it came from JFK. From what I heard, it was a different Dubai Air Wing 744 at GSP - for a while, we thought both were coming to CLT this afternoon. https://photos.smugmug.com/Airplanes/Airliners-and-Airport-Spotting/Charlotte-Douglas-Airport/i-474M5CP/0/1c36...Jump to post
Funny how the decline in pilots has coincided with the decline of the Queen. Young boys used used to point up to the shiny nose of a 747 and say "Dad, I want to fly one of those". You don't see young boys pointing at the nose of some mediocre twin-jet. Like many young boys, I wanted to fl...Jump to post
For the life of me please lock this thread. No, Nick, this thread is epic! I'm sure any day now, Spyhunter will tell us that his back-channel communications confirmed that the DVD tried to bring the plane down because one of the passengers was a Boeing engineer who had secret knowledge of where MH3...Jump to post
Am I wrong for not liking the reports in the media/social media that 'a pilot' helped saved the lives of flight WN 1380. That pilot. the Captain was former NAVY pilot and is a woman. But no mention of the FO and the Cabin Crew? Maybe I'm just being crabby. No, it's just like everyone knows that Sul...Jump to post
Each engine on a Tomcat is offset from the center approx 5 ' so there could be a noticeable asymmetric thrust situation at high thrust and high angles of attacks when one fails. Even then, I doubt the pilots used a reduced setting during T/O as mentioned by a previous poster. On the D-model, they d...Jump to post
I have sold my aircraft photos to the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, NBC Nightly News, a software developer, a airplane part producer and several others - all of whom discovered the photos on this website. That's great - I've gotten lots of requests for free photos, but very few willing to pa...Jump to post
When I started Air Force UPT (around the time of the French & Indian War... ;) ) I had my PPL and about 125 hours total time. I'm not sure if it made a difference in getting a pilot slot - I went through ROTC, and I'm not sure I had finished the PPL by the time I got the slot. Like RW says, havi...Jump to post
Ingraham is a vile human being and her original statement is typical of her - but even with that being said, I have to call out Hogg a bit. He asked folks to boycott her show because of her statements - fair enough, he has a right to do so and it was heartening to see people jump in and do so. It c...Jump to post
Beyond the above, another good reason to earn a college degree is for Option B. What happens if you develop a medical condition that precludes you from passing a flight physical? What happens if the economy tanks and all the pilot jobs dry up? What happens if, after six months, you decide the airlin...Jump to post
There is no chance that this will ever happen, not in the US anyway. I would be surprised if we ever switched to using the word "decimal", much less changing the numbers for altitude stratums. It's bad enough they switched over to "Line up and wait." That's something you do at W...Jump to post
From several sources, photos of the wreckage appear to be red, and most are now saying it is a Red Arrows jet.

No, that's Federally mandated. Guide dogs are usually big enough to take up another seat. i assume the customer has to pay that extra seat accommodation??
