Hey neat stuff from hight altitude and plenty of time to reach terminal velocity.

I would pick a flat plate in a falling leaf mode rather than tumbling ( eg. paper airplane type of motion).

No idea of course of what it is (possible ice from chem-trails )

Ayup to one and all, my name is Ian (AKA Beefsteak) and the pictures in the link of the Ryan Air photos were taken by me.

Please feel free to discuss (And I await with baited breath for a resolution) but please remember they are my photos and don't go 'lifting' them with out my say so, Ta. Ian

Back to the TAAG incident, the airline has passed IATA inspections which surprised several people. This would suggest TAAG isn't intentionally taking shortcuts on maintenance which is reassuring.

The first 777 is supposed to fly again this week as well.

Beefsteak & Baited breath

Just wondered what you "baited" your breath with Beefsteak. I guess you really meant "bated" breath. Sorry, couldn't resist myself.
