If it is a bomb, then I'm not sure that IS/ISIS would want to trumpet this from the rooftops.

I had to do a Proficiency Check recently as my SEP was lapsed; it was highly entertaining doing the Nav part and digging out the old whizwheel again, then while flying the leg checking the map and...

I owned a Europa Trigear 115hp 412 for a few years and loved every minute in the little aircraft. The owner had converted it from the monowheel a few years before after a ground loop and taking out a...

Anyone know, was this the only prototype? is there another one under construction by Scaled?

It may be that I've missed them, but not seen any photos of what must be hundreds of passenger seats, is that unusual? Or just the random nature of where things have fallen?

Looked pretty unpleasant - he also ended up pulling his chute earlier than planned and not breaking the free fall time record, perhaps he wasn't feeling too good after all the tumbling.

It sounds like great fun, but I'd hate to be up there learning to fly the jet if I was at all worried about the huge cash burn rate. It would be enough to think about the actual flying without having...

It's good fun, done it a few times, also seen the BBMF Lancaster do it followed by 2 Tornadoes for one of the anniversaries:) 500ft feels low enough really, no need to simulate the actual op!

I would say most pilots would never be thinking in terms of 10% risk of killing someone, 20% risk, etc. you just can't calculate precise probabilities like that. You would simply think; is there a...

It does seem strange.

One thing which seems to put a lot of people off is the ubiquitous PROB30 SHRA+ that we often get. It's not a 30% chance that you will get caught in a CB though. I guess most people build up enough...

I believe Le Touquet has 3 18-hole golf courses.
