Sonic boom over Washington? by Charles Packer
A big boom over Washington D.C.around 9:30-10:00PM EDT tonight (Friday, June 20) must have been the sonic variety. Sonic booms over Washington are rare -- like never -- hence worth remarking on, hence this posting. -- Charles Packer http://cpacker.org/whatnews mailboxATcpacker.org

Use of FLaps in emergency situations by Tman
Hi, I've never been in these emergency situations, but have had a few scenarios where it has come close enough to get me thinking what would I do if the scenario was a touch worse (and, well, of course, how to avoid getting that close in the first place). One thing I'd like opinions on is the...

LAHSO Procedures by RandyL[_2_]
I have a question that has come up in another newsgroup, that I have always wondered about. When I received my flight training, my instructor told me not to accept any Land And Hold Short Operations (LAHSO) instructions from ATC until I had received training in those procedures - which I never...

Congested Area? by Dallas
What's your opinion, is this a congested area or not? http://tinyurl.com/3okuon My take is that this is an "other than congested area", but a recent article in AOPA magazine discussing an FAA ruling gives congested area a pretty broad definition. I've been assuming "congested area" = pretty much...

Conventional v tricycle gear by [email protected]
Other than the 'holier than thou' aspects of taildraggers and their pilots, what are their real advantages? Has it to do with prop clearance on unimproved fields, or fatter mains being better in that same environment? Does anyone know if, with the same level of experience pilots, they have a better...

Long-time poster Michael (thisoldairplane.com) died yesterday, June 24 in Berrien County, Michigan when his motorcycle was hit by someone who apparently ran a stop sign. The other driver was killed too. Local media is thin on the details. Micheal's funeral will be in New Jersey on Sunday at Wien...

Letting it lapse by Wizard of Draws[_5_]
I think I've come to the conclusion that I will let my IFR rating lapse. As it stands, I seem to be flying mostly to keep the rating current, rather than flying for the enjoyment. I don't really go anywhere, the wife won't fly with me, and the skyrocketing cost is making me look hard at the...

Prop angle of attack vs age by sid
On older planes, does the angle of attack change ? Does the prop angle relax like a motorboat prop does after 1 or 2 decades of constant use ? (fixed pitch of course) There are some older warriors on the field (20 - 25) years, and it seems that there props don't have the bite that the new warrior...
