How soon we forget...

Episode #301 included a segment on birdstrike identification, going so far as to name the Episode "Snarge" (the term for what's left of the bird on or in the airplane.)

Unfortunately, someone (probably me) messed up the related link in the EP 301 notes - but here's the JetWhine post it should have pointed to: http://www.jetwhine.com/2012/07/bird-strike-investigators-want-your-snarge/

I always get a kick out of the fact that one of the primary investigators at the Feather Identification Lab is named Carla Dove.

But I'm easily amused...

Interesting that two of you voted that the missing jet was taken "somewhere" and will turn up in time. I hope you are right, or our children will still be talking about this in sixty years.
I have friends who flat do not believe that the Government doesn't know the truth and for reasons unknown at this time is just not telling us. I personally have less faith that the Government does indeed know everything, or that it could keep a secret as juicy as this.
Time will tell, one hopes.
I just hope that it doesn't next appear flying at low level up the Hudson.

I always find it interesting that my friends who fully embrace the conspiracy theories that our government and others are able to keep massive secrets and pull off mind-bogglingly complex scenarios are also the same people who believe that the government is inept and incompetent.

Jack made a comment about the possibility of snakes on a plane, and I had to think of the AOPA "Real Pilot Story" where that actually happened to a guy in a cherokee. It's a pretty good tale about flying the airplane no matter what happens. You have to be logged in to AOPA, but you can find it here:

Jack,
Are you aware that because of slippery conditions caused by melt on top of the ice, several planes at Alton Bay this year had trouble on the runway, including a pretty bad crack up of N12979, a Fisher Dakota Hawk. I think a Cirrus might have suffered too.

There's a picture at https://www.cirruspilots.org/cfs-file.ashx/__key/communityserver-discussions-components-files/233/Alton-Bay_5F00_2014-03-08_5F00_0674_5F00_edited_2D00_4.png

It is apparently very hard to judge -- visually -- runway braking action when you have water on a snow-covered surface.

Riga Runner,

Yes I had heard that. I know we mentioned it on an ep, but it may have been the recent ep that got delayed and will be coming out next week sometime.
