Re: Piston Greats

The Connie has been an all time favourite of mine. As a young lad from our flat in Fynnlands we could watch the Constellation, in landing configuration for arrival R23 (in those days) at Durban International. Air traffic was at the end of an era. Sunderlands were landing in the Maydon Channel of th...

Re: U.S. Navy Destroyer Collides With Merchant Ship Near Japan

Very sad, the explanation is going to be interesting.

I visited a US warship in the k@kplaas once, they have 24/24 gunners on the deck covering all 360° around the ship watching for hostile activity. And of course radar and other electronic surveillance.

Re: United Airlines flight suffered fuel leak

Possibly a fuel dump valve opened inadvertently or by some technical problem. Another stronger possibility is the "overflow", actually a surge tank at the wingtip to capture excess fuel, may have had fuel in it.

Re: Moré / Hoezit / Morning / Hosh Pagamies ... 2017

Shitty Lodge, what a ripoff. I ran a quick check on the price for a room for one person - R1500 for one night and it seems you have to pay more if you share a room, forgive me if I am wrong. I'm in the USA right now at a similar hotel, the price is $80 per night and I can have 5 people in the room a...
