    Looks like an antenna on the top of the aircraft. Not sure how they paint the "Do Not Paint" sign on it :D
    Thanks, my vision was messed up today, not to take this thread off topic but does the whites on my camera look too white? I have been noticing that recently :?

    Yes, people have to be careful on that road. The TOB should be ashamed.

    What's causing these wrecks? Are people driving off that lip on the side and losing control?
    Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. We have a small problem.
    All four engines have stopped. We are doing our damnedest to get them under control.

    that and the fact that people drive that road at 60 mph. :roll:
    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

The tire has a hard time on the lip and you pull the weel left until you clear it and are now sailing into the other lane.... This one here involded another car



    The ONLY way to fix new Hwy is to pave about 3 feet out from the roads edge on each side. Only then will the fence repairmen have the weekend off! :borat:

    For now, if you go off the road.....KEEP GOING OFF. You can go off the road doing 100MPH and you will have no problem.... Try getting back on the road at any speed right now is just not possible.

    Ahh, sorry. This thread is so long I lose track sometimes.

    They could also just remove the pavement completely so it's all level. :)

    I do have to say Fred's theory on how these accidents happen is spot on.

    We were on New Highway today and were going Westbound, there was also a Van coming in the opposite direction (Eastbound), it looked like he wasn't paying attention and then he went off the road.

    Fortunately he wasn't going that fast and kicked up some dust, and pulled back on the road, if he was going faster he would have either hit the fence on went on to oncoming traffic.

    EDIT- After the Van incident I could have swore I saw a Agusta A-119 in a NYPD paint scheme but I am not 100% sure.

    Must be a GA convention in town, LOL...there is a Mooney at Atlantic, and a Cessna 182 & Pilatus PC-12 at Sheltair...ALL three have German registrations. Figures, I did not bring the camera today due to the conditions.
