"It's Gonna Be A Hot One" UCAP25 Part II

Ok, first off, how many of you did a double-take at the episode title?!?! :o Yes, I've gone back to the start of it all and I'm up to listening to episode #26 now. (Call me crazy, nuts, bored, whatever... just as long as you call me to dinner!) However, something interesting of note from episode #25...

Re: Snarge

Snarge is a good indicator you hit something, and I'm one of those folks who has to go out onto the runway to find the remains! If the carcass can't be found, or just too mangled to identify, then we send what feathers we can to the Smithsonian to identify. They're really good in coming up with the ...

Re: Episode 430 - "S Turns On A Highway"

JarHead, Crazy might be to strong a word for it; but yeah, kinda -- but that's a story for a different time... ;) I've just never liked those lines of either the F-8 or the A-7. The bulbous intake right under the nose just turns me off, and the tail of the F-8 is all wrong, looks like the design was...

Re: Episode 430 - "S Turns On A Highway" -- On A Different Note...

Jack started discussing "classic" aircraft, and I got thinking about some of my favorites. However, I decided to go the other direction, and have come up with a list of some of the ugliest aircraft in history. Not a complete list, by any means -- any my apologies to our British friends for...

Re: Yet another flying car?

The Lilium seems like it's really close, operationally. But battery power is still the limiting factor, as with all these concepts. Perhaps a hybrid powered version would be the next on the drawing board?

Re: "WOOF" UCAP424

A lot of people get panicked anytime they have to talk to ATC. It's one of those things that you just have to do a lot to get comfortable with. Very true. Being airport operators, we talk with tower/ground all the time and I would say that 90% of us are comfortable on the radio, and would probably ...
