I'm absolutely sure he's a great guy. However, he is trying to steer a giant company by numbers and probably has a bunch of goals defined by the shareholders. He probably got the same problem as the...

I still hope they're going to help out Lufthansa, take one or two of their A380s off their hands, pay them to turn them into VVIP planes and then pay them to keep them maintained. That way, the...

I heard about quite a few private pilots that carry hand-held radios in case of electrical failure in the aircraft. (Much safer than just squawking NORDO...)

Handing back a bomb

G-CPTN:

Microburst

IMSAFE

I guess she went through the IMSAFE checklist a bit too publicly.

Gravity

That's what I thought at first, too. Then I did a quick calculation:

The bullet leaves the barrel at about 700m/s. It gets slowed down by gravity by about 10m/s^2.

Assuming the bullet is...

In ancient times, when I was in basic training in the German army, we learned the safety distance for a G3 (7.52x51) was 3000m, the effective combat range of the same gun when mounted was 900m.

Hijacking ended.

Apparently, the hijacking has been brought to a peaceful conclusion:

V Speeds

Batteries

Actually, I wasn't talking about the blimp, I was talking about the NASA research aircraft.

For a blimp, you probably can get away with much less batteries - It just needs them for takeoff and...

Solar Lander?

Debris

Well, one of the pieces of road debris was a tow hitch, IMHO large enough to cause trouble for any car and the other case of the car burning was (AFAIK) after a severe crash.
