    I am not saying that it WAS adversely affected. I am saying it a concerning possibility that needs to be investigated.

    It is interesting how both you and Evan take my I-don't-know's trying to use...

    Yes, for example those. I would also like them to investigate the handling qualities in direct mode for normal pilots used to fly 100% in normal mode. Not for test pilots who are super trained in...

    Yes, but all that assumes that you have good control over the airplane (in particular in the pitch axis). They lacked that since the flare if not early.

    That's too white! And without even windows and emergency exits it looks like a Styrofoam plane.

    That is very important. What matters is not what we know now but what the pilots knew then.

    Would you have blamed Sully for aiming for the river instead of returning to La Guardia if the...

    Yes, a bounce can happen after a stable approach, and a not_bounce greaser landing can happen after horribly unstable approach.

    That said, there is a strong correlation between unstable approaches...

    The oversimplification of the week, close the investigation. In this case, the little dot is not a period (or a full stop). Is a "to be continued".

    As I said, I don't know.



    And to that, I agree and moreover, as I said earlier, even if no red line had been exceeded, a 90-seconds surge is a serious and very infrequent event. I tend to think...

    Running it? Whatever you have will work. Running it at a decent combination of graphics quality and frame rate? USD 1200 (just for the tower) if your definition of decent is not too tough.

    The correct answer is I don't know if this can happen in any specific application, but it may be possible (at least in theory).

    There are a few of factors here:

    - First, the difference between...

    Neither I am.



    Exactly. I never said "add a TIT indicator" or even "scrap EGT and use TIT".

    I just introduced TIT as an alternative to EGT when ATL said that they don't have an EGT...

    Oh, I did. But it's not just you and me and Even. This is a public forum and there might be children out there reading these post.

    True. But the fraction of people who can't afford a 747 SP is much much MUCH closer to 100% than those who can't afford a VW Beetle. You and I, for example.

    While most mortals can't afford a VW...

    As I read in the news, Microsoft would not tell much but they did tell that the new MSFS will also be available for PC.

    And for the first part. I just came across the news by chance and thought I...

    Not saying it is bad, but it is more than what most (almost all) mortals can afford.

    Yes. TIT is the turbine INLET temperature. It is the temperature between the combustion chamber and the 1st turbine stage.
    As the gas flows through he turbine and gives part of its energy to the...

    Or he uses TIT instead. TIT is more important that EGT. EGT is a "byproduct" of TIT. Imagine the EGT in an F-14 with afterburner. But the TIT remains under control.

    I guess that purchasing the plane is the least of the costs. How much is just a hangar for it, per year? How much is a flight hour? Fuel, allowances for maintenance, crew of 3 required (and you CAN'T...

    I am very curious about how did this end up happening. I am sure that Delta would not take a plane and a crew to send a plane where they don't needed it (i.e. where they don't have plans for this...

    There is one thing that doesn't seem to make much sense in that chart: lack of continuity. What's the difference between flying 4:59 at 949C and then reduce to 914C and flying 4:59 at 949C, then 0:02...

    ANy indication that the EGT was too high? The tailpipe fire can be unburned fuel burning when it gets out of the engine.

    Pilot was identified and he was apparently a very experienced pilot.

    Given the poor visibility at that time, we cannot discard CFIT either.

    If you loose the FADEC (both channels) for a given engine, you've lost control of the engine. Either the engine will self-shut down or it will keep at a constant fuel metering valve setting, constant...
