True. It would be comforting to know that to be the case.

True. It would be comforting to know that to be the case.
Well the IFE gets an arrival time from somewhere.....and I think it's the Flight Management computers.
So maybe not.
That'll be 4 5th-generation fighters, Voland. Nothing the Argies have got can match, them, not even numbers.
Sounds like they were saved by the Overspeed Protection. They weren't that close to the ground really (and there is no auto pull-up anyway).
That was the USN trying to do low-level and proving that they are fatally bad at it.
So you phone up the RAF to tell them you're in an LFA, but when the Army ask you to that, they're fuckwits?
The only time I recall an RAF aircraft hitting a light civil, it was a photography aircraft flown and operated by just one guy (so how's he looking out/flying while photographing the ground, then) right in the middle of a Flow Arrow area at 250 feet. Killed a fine Jaguar pilot.
So my opinion of who the fuckwits are are very different to yours.
If you think smacking a city-state like Iraq down means that you'll be able to take on the world's largest standing army with ease, you're out of your mind.
Because the Boeings have worked real well at LA (Asiana), Dubai (Emirates) or over the Atlantic (TWA 800) recently?
Boeings have huge problems; you need to get your myopia looked at (ever flown an Airbus? I bet not).
p.s. Air France managed to over-ride the silicon really well....into the sea.
They sure should. More than one has been lost to people making camp-fires (!!!!!) in the cabin.......
What a fruit-cake you are. Radio-controlled ffs......
Hopefully, this just means parliamentary oversight of Brexit (no bad thing), not a reversal.
They wouldn't be so stupid as to over-rule a referendum, would they?
THANK YOU for the information. I will take the laptop to Apple tomorrow. Cannot actually access the serial number of the machine right now, but I'm fairly confident that this is one of those affected.
Again, thanks; you've saved me a chunk of cash and just before the Dec 31st deadline, too. As you say, it's more of a guarantee than most would expect.
Yes it was the graphics card, but there was no display at all.
Is there a recall out on the motherboards for this machine?
My 2011 MBPro died (for the second and last time in a fortnight) on the day the new MBPro was launched. Perfect timing?
No, the new one has a crap keyboard, crap graphics card, insufficient RAM, small SSD,probably runs permanently hot due to being so thin, is massively over-priced and will never be upgradeable.
This story is just the icing on the cake, plus all the I/O gear I have is now redundant.
For the first time in 15 years, I'm going to buy a non-Apple laptop (and install Mint on it). The new one is all about form, forgetting the function.
A 9g delta-winged Eurofighter is far from a joke.
You on the other hand......
What the hell are you popping to write such utter garbage?
In the public interest, surely?
Thanks for the info - will definitely do that, then.
Anyone know how good Cyanogen is at keeping up with Nexus?
Tempted to try that on my Android 5.0 Asus Zenfone after reading this!
I hate to burst your bubble. but land-based aviation is inherently more capable than naval, since it is not limited to a short runway (or need the strengthening/equipment for carrier ops).
You don't see many B-1s, B-2s or B-52s on carriers, for instance.
"PLED" guilty? Yuck.
How the hell do you get airborne without anyone touching a single control?
The BS is strong in this one.
Currently running 10Mbps <1 mile from the county's capital.....
Tornado is a way better ground-attack aircraft than Harrier ever was and will only be replaced in that role by the F-35 (F3 replaced by Typhoon).
No it isn't ideal having no aircraft for our carriers, but keeping the more capable Tornado was the right choice for all other missions. Harrier could not have done the Libya tasks, for example.
Really enjoying Brave browser (Bravery: Block ads)......
You sound just like the moron with the laser. You're just as wrong.
You can see down from the cockpit (and therefore v.v.).
Actually depth perception is quite an important part of landing, especially in the later stages.
Ever driven a car with no windows?
How exactly would the aircraft get to/from the runway, even if they wanted to do auto lands every flight?
Talk about the tail ( of your "logic" ) wagging the dog ........
Of course the seaweed-suckers are so much more....manly?
Another fuckwit comment.
Think about it: would you want automatic (un-checked) entries to be transferred into the aircraft electronically?
V-min-unstick trials are carried out as certification, yes.
But not for the reasons you state; it's often about flight control laws and performance.
Idiot. Many are ex-bush pilots, but airline flying is a completely different thing. It's about eliminating errors and risk in order to achieve maximum safety.
Don't think flying at 50 feet at 150 knots makes you God's gift, either; far from it. You're at least 500 knots slower than some of the best......
VAT needs to be scrapped and have an individual- or company-wealth tax replace it.
So much easier and will promote buying and selling ("the economy").
Guess the multi-millionaires in parliament don't want that, though the current system is clearly unfit for purpose.
Here are the 10 biggest....
They may have missed The Crusades.
At 130MPH your engine would have been doing over 8500 RPM, so not terribly likely.
Especially with barely more than 200BHP.
Declining LESS slowly? Problem with the title.
Maybe it will be based in Luxembourg?
Or perhaps HMRC will be as tough on them as they were (not) with Amazon?
Time to buy, then!
I agree. There is a direct link that I can think of:
The in-flight moving map for the passengers takes the arrival time from the Flight-Management Computers in the cockpit, no question.
I sure hope that's a one-way connection.....
Here's one that failed as a direct result of a design flaw:
Incredibly rare for mechanical failures to occur these days, thankfully.
However, design flaws can be subtle and indirectly lead to losses, particularly flaws in relation to auto flight/autothrottle.
(Asiana, Air Inter, Air France 400 all come to mind....)
It's TCAS, but you're broadly correct.
You won't have to be moving to do this, either, as ships have a similar system and can generate false returns in aircraft (although they're very rarely at the same level......).
Here's the other famous one with no hydraulics (and hence no primary flight controls):
After the incident, they trialled a similar occurrence with many, many crews in simulators, to see if they could come up with some kind of procedure to cope with this event again. All of them lost control and crashed spectacularly.
Only this and the DHL flight have ever made it. The key was getting the landing gear down; it improved stability through increased drag.
You can spec. iMacs with SSD from the get-go and 16GB of RAM, plus wired keyboard.
That's exactly the spec. of my BTO iMac.
I even have a LogiTech mouse receiver in one of the keyboard USB slots......so it could easily be the machine for you.
Think this will fix it, I think. A proper system-wide firewall, unlike that in OS X.
Check this out. Usually accurate enough to avoid making the wrong decision.
HUDs are used in commercial aircraft.
Standard fitment on 787 and A350, as well as many executive jets.
Quite a few BMWs have them now (M5s/M6s they are standard).
But generally agree; they are useful, intuitive things and I don't understand why they never "took off" (groan) more quickly.
But unfortunately Armourers** take them apart and "service" them completely unnecessarily all the time.
The death of at least 1 Red Arrows pilot(on the ground) was the result......
**The fabled Amrourer's song:
"A....I'm an armourer,
B...I'm an armourer.", etc.
(they're not the sharpest tools in the box).
The engines are set forward of the wings so that if there is an unconfined engine failure, it doesn't wreck the wing. It is a certification requirement.
I hope the rest of the article is a bit more accurate than that part.....
I have to agree. I use Win7 on my 2011 MacBook Pro (seems fine) and bought Win 8 .1 for my new iMac's Bootcamp partition.
The tile interface is a bit weird (I too turned it off) but otherwise 8.1 seems very zippy and stable and actually runs older programs (alright, games; why else would I use Bootcamp?) better than Win 7 does. Win 8.1 cost me just £40 from eBay, which really is not much.
