    The way the fumes distort the engines is pretty cool!

    I've had to fly on that prop plane in the last photo a couple times. Never have I feared for my life more.

    the smaller the plane, the safer the plane. in an emergency they can land slower and in shorter distances

    PS how is the last plane flying? his engines are turned off :eek3:

    I think he's thinking of the oval/triangular shape of the southwest (blue) plane. This is how they're supposed to look like though

    Its a 737 thing. Most inlets are round, those are flattened on the bottom.

    mebbe he means the distortion behind the engines (presumedly from heat from exhaust?)

    At least in a 737 you don't have to rearrange the passengers so the dumbass pilot doesn't stall out the elevators :mamoru:

    yeah i'm not sure they can really torch the center of gravity on a small plane. planes fly outside their limits so fucking bad.

    when me and my dad flew our 172, we were always forward of the CG big time due to our size and no one in the back. plane flew fine.

    It's mostly an issue on medium-small planes, like the dual prop pictured. SOP for the pilot to look around and rearrange people based on their weight/seat spot before takeoff.

    Pilots not re-distributing passengers and stalling their elevators is what caused that crash in buffalo last year/two years ago.

    negative. that plane crash was some weird icing bullshit. in any case they were stalling and the brilliant pilot decided to pull up :ugh:

    You're right about the pulling up thing, but the ice was only the intial theory:


    Autopilot was flying the plane full-trim to keep it level (which the pilot didn't seem to notice, and most agree it was because he failed to properly balance his passengers before takeoff), so it was going through the air at a weird angle. When the flaps went down, worsening the situation, it began stalling out the tail, and that got the stick shaking. Pilot seemed to think it was wing icing, still doesn't explain why the dumbass kept the flaps down and pulled back, though.

    It's an interesting, but sad case. I'm more afraid of the small props due to how much hinges on pilot training/situational awareness. Not so much the mechanical side of things.

    Yeah pulling back when you're stalling goes against everything you are trained and natural instinct

    What the hell were they thinking
