Re: "Replicant" UCAP #364

Re: the F15 accident It's not uncommon for military types to use depleted uranium at various locations on the airframe (for trim weight if I recall correctly). This then poses a big issue later if someone wants to de-mil a jet to have a pretty warbird. This link to another forum has good info about ...

Tappatalk Support

Hi Jack and the rest of the gang. I use the Tappatalk app for most of my other forum post consuming, it means I don't have to fire up my PC (or be at home) to get on and interact with all you lovely folk. Nor do I have to suffer the issues of trying to see the forums in the tiny font used on my iThi...

Re: Remote ATC Tower

This is something that the Australian ATC provider is researching for the more remote locations with tower service (or may need tower service in the future).

Re: In what ep did Dave crash his hang glider?

It's not much help but I'm going to say sub 200 (so that's 80 odd you remove) but I want to say more like 120-150ish.

Episode #263 "The Middle People"

I'm loving the story at the end! My alternate titles (based solely on Jack's story at the end): - "Jack's ramble" - "Why are they taking our bags off of the airplane?" - "Way too many pilots on this airplane" - "This airplane is not taking us to Chicago" - &qu...

'Perfect' landing (if you can describe belly landing a 767 like that!), the Sully of wheels ups. No ripped off bits of aeroplane, no fire and everyone got off in one peice. No...

Not to worry, except for scud running the last sixty miles into Reedsburg, and getting a bit wet, the rest of the Country has offered fabulous flying with tail winds to boot. Whether 11,000 over Wyoming, 2500 feet across Iowa, or 350 feet across some of Wisconsin, the Mighty Ninety hasn't skipped a...
