Paper Airplane Released Into Space (PARIS). Not as many good scenes as the one above, but an extremely interesting idea. :shock:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_IqWal_EmBg — Hypoxic captain, Kalitta 66.

"Unable to control altitude.
"Unable to control airspeed.
"Unable to control heading.
"Other than that, everything is A-OK."

It might be better to not read the comments. They are chock-full of instant hypoxia experts that have just read themselves an abstract.

Ouch, that's totally golden.

Quote is up there in epic space together with Ferdinand Foch:
~(translated more than once)"Center cannot hold, right flank in retreat, situation excellent. I shall attack."

Awesome footage.

Student pilots gotta deal with emergencies, too.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WCZLkgz9PKw — Back in the air.

I'm glad I'm not a student pilot. I just might have to live up to their examples.

Those events are really NOT normal or average though. I can very safely say that, with my brother being a pilot ( not as a job ) and his ex being a pilot instructor... :)

Forgot to mention that 'Captain Maggie' is the new Chuck Norris with (a part of) the Youtube wingnuts. Maggie jokes are almost as ubiquitous as Ryanair jokes, it seems.

This last Saturday the world record for the longest Mustang parade (1326 cars. Previous record was 960 cars in Mexico) was broken in Belgium... Mine is in there... somewhere...

Neat.

And a pretty massive improvement on the record.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2jB2Wa36jiQ — "Everything is breaking on this thing."
In which an airline captain regales Tower with a tale of woe during a snowstorm that had pretty much shut down the Washington National Airport, and requests the Tow of Shame as chimes bing and bong around him.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJ6zTZuq5zw — "DC-3 on Floats"
It takes three stairs and ladders to board or deplane this one.

That DC-3 is awesome, end of story.
Never knew that was done. And the comments include that it used ~"the largest floats ever made for an aircraft".
