    Interesting scope for discussion about who was at fault.

    I have a number of hours in an airplane that was also involved in a collision at JFK.

    As some pilot once said, "That's gonna be paperwork."

    I remember one BFR being griped at for departing from the taxiway line at a typical GA airport.

    The instructor said, "That guarantees you wingtip clearance."

    Ok, sounds like a good procedure to add to common sense fundamentals.

    Ironingly, the as we hit the ramp, a plane was parked literally 10 feet off the taxi line...

    ...I asked if I should remain on the yellow line or not/smart ass snarcasm.

    Interesting that the big aeroplanie wing was hanging way over the line on the 'run up/hold pad'.
    Les règles de l'aviation de base découragent de longues périodes de dur tirer vers le haut.
