    Strangely mesmerizing footage of Ukrainian SU25s flying below radar

    Something going on around DC

    So at what point did this plane lose radio contact with ATC? Does anyone have any ATC recordings with the plane before it went silent? I mean did they lose contact before it got to Islip? If so, don't you think it would have generated some concern way before it got over DC? I'm not following...

    Tires: how old is too old?

    So here this guy with a Sling High Wing who blew a tire in the middle of no where. He didn't know he had a tubeless tire so he couldn't fix it. Claims if it wasn't tubeless he could have repaired it and be on his way since all he had was a repair kit for a tub tire. Not sure how he repaired the...

    Your Dumbest Benign Moment

    Silly but I forgot to put on the ground wire while filling up. Only realized my mistake when I was done.‍. :ohsnap: Looked around and made sure no one saw me and got out of there wondering why that happened.

    N9306Y down Houston, TX area 22-Jan-23

    Looks like there was grass adjacent the road from the video but don’t know how long it is. Landing on the highway has some risk but glad the pilot made it down safely.

    Better to arrive alive

    I was told by a wise pilot that having your own plane is great as long as you’re not in any rush to get to where you are going.

    Beech sierra down KEEN

    Everything says a Beech Sierra but if you look at Flightaware, that plane hasn't flown in a while but their Piper Cherokee N43337 was right over the accident site at the time of the crash. Perhaps NTSB has the wrong tail number?

    Landed on closed runway

    Am I missing something here but if the runway was closed shouldn’t the X’s be on the runway? The X’s being on the grass near the runway might be there for when they plan on closing the runway. Since it wasn’t NOTAMed closed and there are no exes on the runway, was it really closed?
