Re: Astonishing cockpit brawl breaks out between two Iraqi Airways pilots during flight

A food fight :yikes: I thought food fights only happen where food is in short supply and people are starving.

The captain should be sacked.

Re: "Duck Boat" capsizes during storm at lake in Missouri - 17 dead

:yikes: From calm to hurricane in 5 minutes. But surely the captain/driver noticed the buildup prior to the storm? We will have to wait and see what the NTSB says.

I remember reading somewhere that it will be demolished.

Re: DSTv, so much more (reasons to get rid of it)

I've never had DSTV and never will. In fact I haven’t had a TV since around 1995. I have CanalSat for missus and Rafflette when they are in town and it costs a lot less than DSTV.

Re: "Duck Boat" capsizes during storm at lake in Missouri - 17 dead

Yikes, how suddenly did the storm come up? Should the operator not get a met report as in aviation?

I would think the operator is going to be in serious trouble. Apparently the boat driver drowned but the "captain" survived.

Re: Congrats Metro Rail at last a breath of fresh air

I don't ever see this happening even for cargo which is already palletized. What advantage would it hold to cover the expense of production and certification? :thinking: Anyways, if any coach/capsule was released to Metrorail it would be trashed non airworthy within a day. :burner: :burner: :burner:
