Aviation English radiotelephony also requires speakers to audibly occupy the radio frequency or risk being interrupted. . … cases, where phraseology provides no ready-made form of communication, pilots and [air traffic] controllers must resort to plain language (ICAO, 2010: 3.3.13.) □ Rocket Parachute blew the lid off my Scrappy Bush Plane □ (Scrappy 27) No One Can Explain Why Planes Stay in the Air.

West Rockies. Instead, the city and county, which co-owned the airport at the time of the 2010 eviction, will split a payment of $18,750, said Don Anderson, Yakima County legal counsel.

This airplane, the third XCub the factory has produced, is halfway through an FAA-mandated 50-hour flight test period. The only practical implication of that, for me, is that during the test period it’s limited to one occupant—so CubCrafters President Randy Lervold will stay on the ground rather than coach me from the backseat.

Small vortex on wing makes the elegance of birds' flight

The elegance of birds' flight, their seemingly effortless aerial turns and the softness of their landing, have been envied by many people. From countless observations, it has been known that the birds use a small group of feathers, called "the alula," a thumb-like structure that is present at the bend of the wing, in slow and steep flight such as landing.

This natural ability to track one moving player but be ready to quickly look back toward another one sounds simple. But the science behind it is not so simple. In a groundbreaking study, York university researchers have discovered how a map in the midbrain remembers the location of visual targets even as the eyes follow another object.
