    The arm can be unscrewed easily, no need to break it. The window is kept all the way open against the bottom of the wing by airflow.

    Most narrow bodies can't dump fuel, and don't need to since max landing weight isn't that much below max take off weight. If they have to, they'll land overweight but unless the emergency is right...

    It was a clean slate design, but some design choices (ex: O-200 instead of Rotax engine) led to a heavier plane. Full fuel payload was just 300 lbs.

    Skycatcher was doomed to failure from the beginning for being too heavy (a big problem for an LSA). It didn't help that there are better LSA for less money. Why pay a premium for the Cessna name...

    Assuming you are on United, you can go from SFO Terminal 3 (United domestic) to the International Terminal G wing without exiting the secure zone.

    The A320 is six inches wider than the 737. For a guy with big shoulders, that extra inch of elbow room is a big deal, except for airlines like DL and UA that put 737 seats in their A320s because...

    The Blues and T-Birds are both very good at what they do. They both fly incredibly close, incredibly precise, extremely boring routines.

    The diamond pass can't compare to the Canada Goose pass or...

    Both of them are lame compared to the Snowbirds. 9 planes instead of 6 and the Snowbirds fly slower jets that don't take three counties to turn around. Snowbirds are in view the entire show. Blues...

    Ironically, older planes often have better useful load than newer ones. New ones come with lots of fancy (and heavy) extras. I can put four in an old Archer no problem with fuel to the tabs, but...

    I was on a United flight soon after the Continental merger was completed and the crew was all wearing "Ex-Con" pins (including one FA who had bedazzled it) and included the fact that they were a...

    The new livery doesn't work on the A319. The /American is too big. They should scale it so it stays in front of the wing.

    They should paint the winglets/sharklets/wingthingies too, since those...

    There have been several fuel tank fires on the ground. A fuel tank fire on an old worn out 747 isn't hard to believe. I'm really surprised all the people believing the missile theory.
