I…I…I can’t even…
That is not a runway, that is a skateboard half-pipe
That’s really clever! I love it how you can see the aircraft sinking into it’s suspension when the loading is hitting it!
What kind of aircraft is that?
I am at an air safety conference.
Listened to this guy today…
Google QF32 and Crespigny, if this is new to you…
Darn good presentation and a compelling story!
Bought the signed book, of course
Really enjoyed reading about this here
Seems like a good summary of the presentation.

Unrelated but still sort of fitting.
How SpaceMirrors are made
No, not in a while at least. I could get it as a first officer, but then I’d have to start commuting to another base. I’m better off as a commander on the Dash8, for now. Would be fun, though!

Pulling G’s in the L-39C Albatros. Bucket list flight.
Such a gorgeous little jet the Albatros … mesmerizing vid … TFP.
BTW, I get paranoid whenever someone tells me what we’re about to do is “perfectly legal”.
I think that I need to return to the airline industry!
That’s an amazing piece of technology that elicits a belief that there is no limit to what mankind can create. Thanks for linking.
Always amazes me how busy the cockpit is during a short flight.
Short flights like this are very busy, at least for the PM/PNF.
