That is a gorgeous display!

Not shown - inside that A380 are over seven hundred rare giraffes, all painted gold and eating caviar. :giraffe:

I’m guessing the two jets that had to do the continuous corkscrews lost the bet at the bar the night before.


#189

Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! - Those guys

Interesting - Cessna is building a new “clean sheet” twin turboprop utility aircraft. FedEx will be the launch customer:

Looks like an excellent STOL aircraft at first sight. I hope it fares well for Cessna!

Spotted @Troll hard at work this winter again…! (LOL…I know, it’s not a Dash 8…)

And a funny Shorts story:

The Air Canada behind the Loganair Shorts asked the tower what type it was, and tower said “it’s a shed”. The Loganair captain immediately replied, “it’s a Shorts SD-360 actually”. To which the Air Canada crew responded “Really? Did you make it yourself?”


#193

Buahahaha awesome!


#194

I’d love to put one of these in the back of someone’s car and rig it up to the ignition…


#195

And then you’ve murdered someone! :wink:


#196

Like I said… :rofl:


#197

No, it certainly isn’t…

Chris, my friend, you have struck gold!
Where did you find that pic!?!?

I grew up around that plane. :heart:

It’s a Shorts belonging to the defunct Swedish airline Air Hudik. It operated out of the city of Hudiksvall in the county of Hälsingland, where I’m from. Our neighbour worked there as a technician. The same neighbour that took me flying for the first time, in his two seat Jodel experimental, and built his own Evans VP-1 in his livingroom.

The memories…

It was just a random Reddit aviation thread…

Great that you have an attachment to it…!

Ooooops! … Alan Cross (a popular Toronto music aficionado) was aboard a 777-300 ER at CYYZ early yesterday morning on his way to Bangkok when it hit a light standard.

Check out the damage to the wing …


#200

A bit of tape, will be fine… :wrench:


#201

And there goes your wing spar! :wink:

But seriously, a dent all the way up to the stress panel, that is not a happy fun time for maintenance. A expensive little mistake unfortunately.


#202

Ouch. Yeah that one is going to be grounded for a while.


#203

That little nick? It’ll buff right out…


#204

Mmm…that A340 landing about two minutes in is just nice…
