Re: What are your favorite songs to fly to?

I would say.... Pantera, Slayer, some classics like ACDC, Led Z!!! Ummm....and when I'm not on a fast pace heavy metal rush I listen the top 20 hits. But since I fly on vatsim, i gotta keep it low when talking to ATC as they'll hear lots of profanity in the background while I'm reading back instruct...

Re: Vatsim flying?

Heh.......no big deal wind wise/visibility wise. Traffic wise though such as real aviation is troublesome as it created delays.

Re: Safety Card Collections

I'm sure some F/As would give you one, while others would say no. There are a few extras on board most of the time in the same area of each aircraft, but really it is airline property and important FAA safety information. I know I wish I could collect them but I don't want to break the rules as an e...

Re: For Sale: 10 Boeing 757-200s

I thought Fed Ex and other cargo carriers were purchasing them? I talked to a cargo pilot for Evergreen I think it was..? During a trip to Amsterdam. He said they bought a bunch of our 757s I forgot where/whom I heard it from, but fed ex was to purchase a few. Good riddens to aircraft 5501 lol.

Re: Continental Connection Flight 3407 Crash.

Well.... from what a witness has said, it would seem to be icing. Sputtered engines, angled tilted nose dive into a house. Looking at the pilot's hours with the airline; they were very young in terms of experience. the F/O with the company of about a year with less than 3,000 hours. The Captain for ...

Continental Connection Flight 3407 Crash.

The plane crashed near Buffalo from Newerk. Just heard this here is the link. I'm thinking wind/weather perhaps clipped a cell phone tower? It was very windy in central US today. Prayors to the families. http://www.cnn.com/2009/US/02/13/plane.crash.new.york/index.html#cnnSTCVideo" onclick="window.op...

Re: Continental 1404 runs off of the runway at KDEN

Perhaps they hit a wierd spot on the runway during take off which put the plane in a slight hop into the air b4 actual take off speed and wind caught under the wing forcing an odd aborted T/O and the pilot thought just the nose was off the ground thus loosing control and sliding off? I thought I hea...

Re: Express Jet Flight 1234/1235 ORD-EWR and EWR-ORD

Oh... was it misserable. I wasn't as scared driving ever as I was today, mostly because for me, not getting to wor...
