Anone ever fly out of Orange County/John Wayne Airport? It beat anything Disneyland has!

Short field, then you have to pull almost stright up, then you level off and have to cut your engines because it's surrounded by homes.



Boeing builds the best aircraft in the world! IMO

If I was on that jet and it did some acrobatics like that, I would poo so much it would run down my leg.

Ugh.... I hate flying.

Great video showing a 24 period of flight in the air around the world. Makes you realize how many flights there are. Also look at all the places that still dont have alot of flights. Found that pretty weird. US and Europe just get swallowed up.

Anyone ever had to land in very windy conditions? I flew into Minneapolis a few years ago and it was windy as hell. Pilot had to fly in a little sideways with one of the wings lower than the other because it was a cross wind and leveled it out about 10 feet or so above the ground. That will loosen your sphincter a bit.

Nothing beats landing on a ship at sea in a Helicopter (except perhaps a jet landing on a carrier). Did that a couple of times, and while I am glad I got to do it, wouldn't want to do it again.

I took off once from a place called Loreto...on the Baja...the plane did it's normal taxi to the runway...and then actually got pushed back even further to make sure it was at the very end of the runway. They jacked the crap out of the engines before releasing the brakes and that plane used every last inch of runway before taking off. They actually cut the 8 foot perimeter fence to 4 feet at the end of the runway.

I'll just leave these here...




Yep - St. Maarten is my favorite place on earth. I go about twice per year - would go more if I could get off work. Being on the plane for the landing is sooo cool.

Iran Air flying through the mountains. Remember it to this day. Straight up, straight down, banking to the point we were sideways. I think the pilot was having fun.
