Nuclear Disaster in Fukushima/downwind

Gentlemen all,

It's my unfortunate duty to inform you that it appears Fukushimi Reactor number one has exploded in Japan; very likely a Hydrogen explosion that NKH and others are reporting has...

The Smoke Detector who cried Wolf

(Note: Non-777 Dino comments follow. If these upset you, kindly skip down to the next post.)

"Ex-spurt"

PBL,
Well, even though I don't think it's a conspiracy, I noticed that most people who go around calling themselves "experts" are anything but that. :} Witness the so-called "Aviation Experts"...

Blame it on the Ice boogieman, not the computer

Hey PBL,

Thanks for the great post. It's clear from everybody that my ignorance knows no bounds. :ooh: It seems like the older I get, the less I know. However that's why I make these posts, in...

Great post Goldfish85,

The Bus Cult Continues

Interesting post by 320 driver. :)

I believe it aptly demonstrate my point about the "blind faith" some A320 drivers exhibit toward a design that over-rides the pilots command to miss the rocks...

Hell Management! LOL!

"Shuttering" Mystery

A poster was mentioning that the crew was experiencing "shuttering" which I suspect could be flight spoiler reaction. At least on the previous airframe, the A300/310/B4's, the bird had no inboard...

411a

I would like to tip my hat, to 411a and his admirable real-world training ethics. :ok:

Yes, really BOAC. It's a safety thing that old hands did when mountains or hills are close to the airport. It only takes a second for one guy to reach over and set it up. The new radars are so...

First of all, while a good post with good points, the heading "Pope" guy is wrong afaik. 737, 747, 727, BAe146, Bizjets, (Collins, Sperry, King etc) and dozens of GA aircraft with HSI's, took the...

Hardship Posting

Well,

It was a long time ago, but my co-pilot got blown up in a Southern Transport C-130 when they hit an unknown mine buried in the dirt runway. She still walks funny. When I told an African...
