Flying is hard

Flying is hard

Especially when you miscalculate your takeoff weight by 15 tons. The 737-800, flown by Russian carrier S7, did manage to get into the air, but it took out some lights at the end of the runway.

Moscow, Russia - A Boeing 737-800 from Russian operator S7 Airlines smashed lights at the Moscow…

Good Morning, Oppo

Good Morning, Oppo

It’s Monday, Oppo. Time to get back to work.

BT-13As under construction at Vultee’s Downey, California plant in 1942. A primary trainer, the BT-13 was better known as the Vultee Vibrator to its pilots. More than 9,500 were built and, after the war, surplus BT-13s were sold for a few hundred dollars each, and the engines were often placed on other aircraft and the airframes scrapped.

Let’s go grab a cold beverage. Any big plans for the weekend?

I have none, and plan to enjoy doing nothing.

Edit: Just bought tickets to a baseball game for Saturday night.

And I ran....I ran so far away....

And I ran....I ran so far away....

....from the wreckage. A flock of seagulls brings down a Russian airliner. It’s just like Sully, but with 100 percent less Hudson River.

How cool heads glided a Russian jet down to safety

Russian crew are hailed as heroes for saving everyone aboard an Airbus jet hit by a flock of gulls.

The armrest on my wife’s 2013 Civic. She says, “Don’t use the armrest!”  Any idea what I can do about this?

Trump Wants To Buy Greenland

Trump Wants To Buy Greenland

Has anybody bothered to ask Denmark? Is it even for sale?

President Trump has pushed top aides to investigate whether the U.S. government can purchase the giant, ice-smothered island of Greenland, two people with direct knowledge of the directive said.

The presidential request has bewildered aides, some of whom continue to believe it isn’t serious, but Trump has mentioned it for weeks. As with...

FAA Bans Recalled MacBook Pros From Flights

FAA Bans Recalled MacBook Pros From Flights

The Apple laptops in question are some 15-inch MacBook Pros sold between September 2015 and February 2017. Apple issued the recall in June, saying it had “determined that, in a limited number of older generation 15-inch MacBook Pro units, the battery may overheat and pose a fire safety risk.” (Bloomberg)

How in the world are they even going to be able to enforce this? I would wager that many...

Good Morning, Oppo

Good Morning, Oppo

Back to school day for my boys. I couldn’t be happier.

I’ve picked up about 20 private trumpet trumpet students this fall at my boys’ middle school. The money will be decent, but it will be a lot more hours away from home than I’ve had for quite some time. I’ve spent the last 16 years as a stay home dad. I’m looking forward to it. I think. 

Watch those school zones.

My boys start school on Thursday, so I told them to clean out their backpacks.

Their gym clothes have been in their backpacks for the last three months.

A fresh lead in the search for Amelia Earhart

A fresh lead in the search for Amelia Earhart

Back in October 1937, a British colonial officer was scouting Gardner Island, which is now called Nikumaroro. He took a photo of the island, and a shipwreck. But his camera also caught something else. And now, researchers believe that the blurry artifact in the photo might well be a landing gear from Amelia Earhart’s Lockheed Electra. The people at The International Group for Historic Aircraft...
