    [NA] We tipping for shipments now?

    I have always tipped well, and sometimes over-the-top well if service was above and beyond. That said, I’ve been getting extremely frustrated with the expansion of tipping to virtually every service, as well as the rise from an expected 15% to now 20% or more. Worse, many of the workers in...

    While the engine is off ....

    Looks like the winter I decided to pull the engine in the Camaro to fix the leaky rear main and do a “little detailing”…and come spring, it had a new 383 and TKO 5-speed…

    Lancair in McKinney 11/11/23

    Clearly the car driver didn’t have his wife with him…otherwise she would have been yelling at him to brake before the plane even touched down…

    Was going to post the same. Great for isolating leaks.

    PA—46 Down KORS-4 ok

    Obviously reporting was…ahem…lacking. That said, I tend to believe he/she didn’t simply overrun as there is a fence and road between the south end of the airport and where they came to rest. I’d think the nose and prop would be in far worse shape had it not lifted off at least briefly following...

    PA—46 Down KORS-4 ok

    Hadn’t seen this one posted yet. Dad lives up there, drove past shortly after it happened. “wonderful” journalism aside, sounds like a possible botched go-around. Prop tip (the visible one) doesn’t look like it was turning though...

    (TL;DR debrief) Well, Imma have a snickers....

    My only concern with that route is that if I’m not mistaken, the through-studs also supply the clamping force for at least one main bearing…meaning the engine could’ve been running with a bearing that didn’t have adequate retention and may have rotated some (or is about to).

    Reno midair

    It sounds like your true expertise is in the arena of being an arrogant alpha hotel. Its been my experience that those who have to brag about how amazing they are, aren’t.

    Reno midair

    Thank you and I echo your thoughts. I’ve been around airplanes (real and RC) my entire life. My dad built a house for an unlimited competitor in 87/88 and attended the 88 races to watch him. He always said someday we’d go (I was very young at the time). That someday happened to be 2011. After...

    Deceased pilot would have wanted financial penalties on aircraft museums

    “What so and so would have wanted” has to be one of the most abused phrases following someone’s passing. It seems like it’s used to justify greed by survivors more often than not.

    The world will end shortly…

    When I still had my mega cab Ram, there was a company doing long bed (8’) conversions…I can’t imagine trying to park one. The mega with the OE bed was bad enough.

    When the people saying the oceans are rising are also buying oceanfront property, you know they’re full of bull manure.

    Ahhg! An airplane flew over my house!

    Nope-as a society we’ve adopted the notion “if something annoys me, it should cease, no matter what it means to anyone else, or who I might have annoyed with my own choices.” Examples: -moving in next door to an established noise source, then trying to shut it down -moving in to a...
