A lot of people say that, but I think it's irrelevant. If he loses (please!) then on Jan 20th he won't be president, period. If he refuses to leave the white house then the president can operate from...

The nose section (up to the first partition, with an external staircase) of an ex-United 747 is preserved at San Carlos, just south of SFO. That includes a typical mid-90s first class cabin. When my...

They'll be seriously missed in this household. The upper deck in Club Class was like being in a private jet. My wife - who has flown BA enough to be Gold For Life - always asked for and always got...

None of this makes any sense to me. Whichever way you look at it, hydrogen is not a good energy storage medium. It's just such a pain to store. If you're going to make fuel from renewables, why not...

My uncle's first car, in 1958 or so, was a pre-war Morris 8, strangely with the registration OLD 8 (why do I remember that?). A few years later he exchanged it for a much more "modern" Standard 10...

Maybe I wasn't very clear. That's from a deliberately flattened spin, using the prop to pick the nose up at the entry and then holding it there with power. I don't know what "abused control usage"...
