  • The defense may claim that they intended to use a hyphen, which is sort of like having intended to pay for something stolen because a crime has nevertheless been committed. What we have here is a failure to communicate within the bounds of grammatical law. That said, scofflaws do make the best lawyers....

  • Well, TOPMS would be good for all planes and seems like a no-brainer in this gadget age when your watch can tell you if you are about to drop dead....

  • So I skimmed through the video. What was the 'probable cause'? Did they ever determine that? If it was degraded engine performance, I suppose another rule could be to watch your engine instruments and reject before V1 if they seem off (assuming your V1 calculation includes stop distance). He seems to have a well-developed instinct for what is normal performance on that plane but he refers to it as 'a feeling', not any actual indication....

  • I know they don't teach grammar at law schools, but it's still a reliable red flag when a legal services ad violates them laws....

  • The Final Report is out on this one. You'll be happy to know that is only in Kazakh. I realize that some people on this forum don't speak much Kazakh, so reposting the AV Herald translation:



    Conclusion: Z9-2100 may not have successfully climbed out of the runway, may have stalled and pranged back down on the runway, may not have remained on the runway, may not have avoided striking a building and 12 people may not have survived as a result. But let's wait for the... oh wait a minute......

    But not a lot of thought these days. They're mostly just paint schemes....

    Hopefully this leads to more direct transatlantic flights to JFK. This belongs in the safety forum because we want to safely avoid New Jersey....

  • Was this a blind crossing or not? If so, then definitely, but someone's gotta pony up for that and when it comes to American infrastructure we get into this pass-the-buck routine and before you know it a decade has passed and a dump truck driver has passed on. Also, you don't allow trains to barrel through a blind crossing at 90mph.

    If it's not blind, then there's eyeballs and Darwin.

    One problem arises when you put up bells and lights and gates and they are triggered by a freight train hundreds of yards away limping along at 2 mph. So then people just dodge through the gates because that train is still five minutes off and everyone's feeling a bit stupid waiting for it. It's the boy who cried train....

  • Hopefully “at” rather than “in”.



    Depends. There’s nothing more annoying than a stop sign when you can see that there is no other traffic for a country mile (except for the cop car hiding behind the bushes).

    is there a Darwinism sign?...

  • The truck driver was the primary victim and the victim of his own lack of attention to dangers (and thank Zeus he wasn't a bus driver).

    But he was also the victim of America's third-world proceed-at-your-own-risk infrastructure. And you can't begin to discuss the demise and decay of American infrastructure without bringing up the great shift from commonwealth to private wealth known as Reaganomics.

    If the poor SOB didn't get hit by a train, he probably would have met his end in a bridge collapse....
