Brittany Murphy's Deaths Examined in a New Documentary

"So yesterday I watched the Brittany Murphy documentary parts one and two what happened Brittany Murphy, I think it's called her story as you know, has been told before on a number of TV specials, but not without the depth and not with such a careful skillful touch if I may say so. It's called what happened Brittany Murphy. And this director is great. She uses new interviews, archival footage. She really goes back to reexamine the mysterious circumstances surrounding her death back in 2009 and the death of a creepy crawly husband, Simon monjack with the thinning hair and the big fat belly. And you watch the trajectory of Brittany Murphy's life and it's just heartbreaking to see how quickly it goes down. I always loved her face. I said this on the Patreon show. I loved her face always could express pain and sorrow and sadness and wonderment and love. What an expressive, beautiful face, those big big eyes like Bambi. Beautiful girl. So the documentary begins with this clip of Brittany as a little middle school kid and she takes a TV reporter's microphone away and she hijacks the segment at a local fair or something and then she starts asking kids all over all over the playground. What are you here for? Why'd you come? What's your age? What do you go to school? Like just full of joy. And you can see right there at that age with a crazy crooked teeth and a silly hairdo. This is an actress. I mean, it just comes out. You saw her in clueless, Garland interrupted 8 mile. She had that girl next door thing plus a very heavy sexuality as well. I mean, it 8 mile boy was she sexy. She was, you know, more of a girl next door, not the more conventional Hollywood leading. But she was becoming that. She was becoming that. And she seemed to be getting it all done, holding it all together, and then she met asshole monjack. And this film shows that that relationship is what really made things quickly fall

"And i was like. Oh shoot like of course. That is the quintessential seen that makes. Everybody be like seriously disney. Are you really making movies for kids. Are you trying to traumatize the children because it's working. Yeah i'm with you there like if i were to look back at it now I think would be able to analyze it a bit more and like there. There are a lot of Cinematic elements that enhance the What's happening in that scene emotionally. But really what what gets you is that that is like every kids. Well most kids. Worst nightmare i mean i. I can't imagine anything scarier as child than leading losing your mom and Yeah i i think that scene. I don't think ever actually made me cry. Because i was just too much in shock And it's probably the reason that i am kinda over bambi like i. I watched it as a kid several times. Because i think my parents grew up with and there was a lot of nostalgia for them but i was never that into it And i am so over it now because it's it's just sad and like from that point it never really gets better like then he grows up and i mean it's like who wants to who wants to watch a kids movie where the main character grows up too soon It's like it's like the lion king but there are no fun songs. That's right this now. The power cuts hypnotist. Yeah there's a couple of songs but bombies mum's death was a daring move for disney. i know that bambi is based on a book. Which i think is actually i think they actually softened the book quite a lot with the book is like. Let's take a look realistic. Look at the lives of animals out in the wild. It scary and i think bambi was definitely wear. Disney started to go into this. Let's deal with really big real life emotions territory but.

Did the translators handle david's language. accurately Well which is which is really kind of interesting behind a little bit of behind the scenes was it is an american produced show so the producer was an american. The the agent who contacted me was an american however once we went live. The host of the net of the new program was arabic. So i had a female arabic translator in my ear. Translating his question from arabic to english. I was then giving my english answer to be translated back to arabic all simultaneously. It really was kind of a film. Nominal kind of rece- interesting technical thing where you so. You've got arabic translated to english response in english translated back to arabic all within less a thirty second delay so it really was quite interesting it would be nice to know what got lost in all those translations and and i just have an email it just came in from liechtenstein national news.

"Happy this week. You see that's just the kind of guy. He was at launch pad. I've got to say well. You made me terribly sad this week thinking of you now and hearing you tell me your tail in my head makes me happy. Thanks buddy for the airplane. Geeks here in portland maine. This is your main man mike. All right what's up with the geeks. Hey i went to the Spur wink farm flying and pancake breakfast. That mica has introduced us to over the years. And let me tell you. What a blast. This was an amazing great time Michael was there. ernie was there several other people that are either characters or old friends or or fun. Mike flew his sonics in The venue is just amazing. It's a it's a operating farm and so year on this. Beautiful farm overlooks the ocean. And you've got all kinds of aircraft flying in. I'm not sure what the count was this year. I know i think they've had about seventy aircraft flying in the past and they might've they might've exceeded that this year But good times great pancakes. I've been the sun fund and that was great. I'm going to oshkosh. I know that's going to be great in bacon on top of it. Be at camp bacon. Yeah yeah and and. And this is an example this flying There's an example of note a completely different kind of social aviation event so Yeah highly recommended but Mike and i did some interviews. We'll we'll have those coming up some episodes in the future. But i had a great time. Met some great for pancakes. I can't even remember when i had pancakes last with blueberries and real main maple syrup. I think that's kind of the classic general aviation flying. I remember when i lived back. East flying into limerick pennsylvania next to the nuclear plant there and having pancakes and it was just a fun. Little flight down from new jersey. And the you know. I never would flown into that airport accepted. I'd rather had a fly and it would be serving pancakes It was it was great. I just had a had a wonderful time. It was fun. You'll hear when when we play the the recordings that we made some of the interviews so that was my My weekend headed to the Soaring championship upstate. New york see that's going on as we speak now but i'll be over there and the next day or two But see max trescott. What's what's been going on with you anything. Well max when you are in elmira you'll be a hop skip and jump an hour drive from my hometown of wells bro. Pennsylvania which is right across the border from el myra so no elmira extremely well so have fun up there and definitely get up to top a harris hill. Their greek view looking down over the the valley from there. And for me. it's gotta be horseheads. In what what an interesting name for a town. I leave it to people to look on the internet. How horseheads got its name. But i'll tell you this that dates back to the revolutionary times Let's see so for me. I have been busy. Last week was four straight days of vision jet flying and literally. These were full days started in the morning flying myself down to Watsonville than flying all day and the jet then flying back home so long days but Great fun Total of nine days in the past month in the vision jet. I've started posting a number of photos on my instagram account. So for those of you are on instagram Go on out and search for aviation news talk and you can see all the photos that i've posted there recently. Great great i like your new trend of matching your shirt with the jet you're flying. I've decided that i've decided that this should be. There should be a new procedure for you that you need to make sure that you match year you match your wardrobe to your aircraft. It's you mentioned that because that photo of me standing in front of a serious in a blue shirt blue serous and blue sky probably got more likes than anything i have posted on facebook and my life. All right as for you rob You mentioned the story. You've got coming out in Flags e. news looking for the coming. That's right and that's the one coming out tomorrow which will be after. This already is published but So i i hope i did launch pad credit. I hope i said something that was meaningful about him because he was really he was really interesting guy. And and especially we're going to sum up at Up at oshkosh because he was a regular figure at air venture and he had something all prepared for the podcast lovers x. exhibit and. I don't know exactly what's going to happen now. Probably nothing but maybe someone will pull it out I wish i could say that. I would but unfortunately i've got five days of. Ea radio to to deal with in which will have Twenty different guests on that show from eleven to noon. And if you're up venture you can combine peer in the window. Just don't because i'm just don't knock on the glass because it really makes everybody crazy but don't tell them that. I told you to do that because i'll really get my get. Just don't do that. Forget i even mentioned it actually so there but we're really looking forward to Air ventured a couple of weeks. I think there's an awful lot of pent-up demand that some of you've got to experience down in sun and fun. I just thought of how we could honor our good friend launchpad. I see that three out of four of us here. Have mustaches rob. You're going to have to join in here. But i'm thinking we should see who can grow the best handlebar moustache to replace. What is now missing the characteristic that maybe it now if launch pad were here he would start a photo contest. So all right. I think this is what we should do listeners. If you have a fine handlebar moustache and you've wax the ends and it looks like launch pad. let's go ahead and have you a submit them to the show. Max do that this. Send them to the geeks. Airplane geeks dot com. I think that's That's a really fun idea. I know that..

"Oh three hundred a little over forty eight hours if the launch passing. I've been texting with someone who's been very upset about losing him. Someone on the other side of the world from me and someone who also never met launch. I'm trying to make her feel better. I start to think what would launch pad say or do now. I've got to tell you something before. I go any further to those of you. That know me. It won't come as any surprise. But if you don't know me already you need to know. I have a strange and warped sense of humor. It comes out at odd times often expressing emotions that i'm feeling nod way but can be perceived as quite warped these warped comedic sensibilities actually run in my family. Some of it was cultivated for my mother. Some my father some from boat. Maybe it has to do with the books. I read growing up or the films. I would watch some of that included laurel and hardy abbott and costello of course the marx brothers just to name a few and crazy as it seems. I also grew up loving british comedy. That goes back hundreds of years. I always wanted to write a paper. Tracing british comedic history. From shakespeare to gilbert and sullivan to noel coward monty python truly. I love them all. When you look at some of those influences you can see. The tragedy often becomes comedy story from gilbert and sullivan's operetta the mikado. It's all about a town that's going to be destroyed unless someone. Anyone is beheaded in the next thirty days. Doesn't sound humorous to me when describe that way but it's hysterically funny and also includes some of the most wonderful music and lyrics. You'll ever hear my warped sense of humor has gotten me in trouble in more than one occasion in particular. It used to get very scary when my brothers and i were together as kids and as adults for that matter like i said it runs in the family i remember a particular passover seder a truly solemn event in jewish households an annual dinner that retails the book of exodus for some reason. A passage from the haggadah. The book used to run the seder. Well it just crack me up and both of my brothers just lost it with me. We couldn't stop. Laughing is embarrassed. My mother and father as we had company. But eventually my folks saw the joke to and we're laughing along with us then. There was a time when my father died. And my two brothers. And i went to schule the meet with a rabbi. A man. we'd never met before we needed to talk to him about the service and his eulogy and my brothers and i just got hysterical jokes about my father. I mean we were all laughing so hard. We were falling out of our chairs for example when the rabbi s of my father had favorite prayer at the same time we all said the hamasi which is the blessing that's recited before meals or eating bread. The poor rabbi didn't know what to make of us so why is that. Why do i sometimes laugh at tragedies. I don't know sometimes. I cry when i'm extraordinarily happy. I think it's just a matter of expressing emotion. Joni mitchell explained lyrics from her song. People's party's on the album court and spark part of those lyrics. Talk about this woman only sees it a party. She was attending and they say one minute. She's so happy that she's crying on someone's knee saying laughing and crying you know. It's the same release so with that in mind with all good intentions. While i'm worn my friend launchpad. Like i was morning my father when i broke up laughing. I've got the share. Some thoughts with you. That i hope will make you smile as i was texting my friend about launchpad the other night and unsuccessfully trying to comfort and cheer her i reflected back all the hours i spent on the phone with launchpad how he loved to tell me stories about what he was doing. What happened during the week. What his plans were that. Were coming up and what stories. He was working on for the airplane. Geeks so i started thinking if launch pad to call me right. Now what would he say and then it hit me now please again. Don't get me wrong. I'm not trying to be disrespectful. Nor sacrilegious. Nor crazy out of my mind. But i really think i can hear launchpad speaking to me. I'm sure i know exactly what he would be saying. He be rambling on damn mica. The fuck was wrecked. It's never gonna fly again. I can't believe. I took all that time and effort to get it into the usa and now is permanently grounded. It's wrecked i mean. It's just not right. I was sure they could rebuild it. I mean i know. I brought it down hard but those houses were coming up and i didn't wanna hit anyone it. I can't believe erected. Jeez and gabby you know how sweet she is. She had said anything. But i think she's pissed at me you know. I finally talked her into moving to texas would be from germany and now i'm headed back to germany to be with her parents. I mean she came all this way packed up the dog and the bunnies and now i have to move someplace else. That's not fair to her. I mean yeah. I'll be moving in with her parents back in germany. I do like them a lot. But oh and then. I tell you i'm going to be neighbors with baron von rick coffin. Yeah the red. Baron can't wait to invite them over for a real texas barbecue but let me tell you what happened. I was flying along and the damage. It went fluey. And i was trying to figure out how and where to bring her down. In fact i need the write this up for the show. This is going to make a good piece. I need to get to work on that. And after finished telling me the whole story for the third or fourth time launch pad would say you know. I just got here and only just found the phone so i figured i call you but i gotta figure out who's in charge here. I want to get this written down and recorded for the geeks didn't give you the deadline for the labor day. Bits and pieces show yet. I hope it's not until sunday before labor day. I mean. I really hope that. I have that way day weekend. I mean i have plans for that weekend. I think rick thompson is gonna take me flying. Yeah i should be able to get it worked out by then. I just gotta find out who it is. I need to talk to for permission to get the story to you. I'm sure i can talk them into it. And he would go on and on and on on the phone like that for hours until he told me the whole story over and over with an ear to ear grin on his face the whole time as he weaved his tail explaining in minute detail what happened and what he was thinking and what he did. And what's coming up. That's right seriously. I can hear him now. Really i can and i think he's happy but you know what else and this is. The important part even launch pad wasn't happy. He would still want us to be happy. I could also hear him saying something else to me something. He used to say to me all the time. Something that became cliche phrase of his when we were on the phone when he would regularly ask me every time we talked so mica. What.

"I completely disagree with that. Because anybody that i know of flight attendant friend of mine at south west who knew the lady that got socked a few weeks ago and broke broker. Front teeth i. I mean sorry and these are women which everybody says well women deal with conflict much better than men. Children look on it. But but i mean again what is rob at jet. Wine dot com. But what is wrong with these people that the only thing they can do is to think of sock and somebody in the jaw or doing something maybe part of the briefing should be and if you if we do need to exit the aircraft there are two over wing exits two and by the way the doors. Don't open in flight. So don't waste your time. i got to tell you. This is actually one of the reasons that i have been reluctant to go flying on the airlines. You know certainly the the concern of the pass was hey. You might catch something. The odds of that have gone down dramatically but now there's just so such a level of violence on the airplanes. You really start to wonder you know. Is that the biggest risk that one now faces when flying the airlines certainly dying in an airplane crash is there's zero chance of that these days But getting involved in an ugly violent incident. That's that's certainly a lot greater chance than being in an airplane accident and it really is kind of amazing that i i don't know since january or late last year this is seen to exponentially spike. I'd love to know what the psychology is now about. The sudden is occurring or it. You know there's something going on there. That i just don't know what it is or you know kinda weird. I think there are a lot of mental health issues right now. Many undiagnosed but hey rob your. Your wife works in that field. I mean has. She said anything about The rise in the mental health issues over the last year. Well i think As she has told me many times we're still operating in the dark times we just don't know what because there are probably There's probably going to be fallout from the last eighteen months that people in her profession haven't even figured out how to measure and people are just anxious. They're striking out at odd times and they're just displaying odd behavior and of course. This isn't just happening in airplanes. We've seen pictures of people. I saw one on on the news the other night about a bunch of people that had a fight chucky cheese i mean because is it. Is it alcohol that sets them off. Is it something else. But it's just people just losing it and we don't know when they're going to get it back and more than three thousand incidents of unruly passengers since january i So at have what. The original numbers are by the the fines by the faa. They are Just halfway through the year they find three times as many people as they find for the entire year Last year so that says a six x increase in faa fines. So that's that's a huge increase in all fairness. That's really sad about last year because even half of what's happened this year. Nobody was flying last year. So i mean there. That's a really kind of a scary concept. Yeah yeah we're seeing people charged with felonies for their behavior on the on the airlines. And i think that was pretty rare in the past. Well but maybe that's what it's going to take for people to get the message. I as we were looking at the story of one of the stories earlier. I saw that the the lady that did not the flight attendants teeth out on southwest got find over fifty grand and she of course got banned from flying on south west for life which is just great. As far as the southwest employees are concerned But again there are probably a lot more people out there that are like that and and what will get them to slow down a related story. And i found these two totally separately and didn't even connect them at the time when i when i propose them but This story says that the tsa will resume defense training for airline employees. So that's what may be slowing down the the amount of a bad behavior So apparently with the tsa has offered self defense training for airline flight pie of flight attendants and pilots in the past The classes were halted last year because of covid nineteen. They are voluntary for a flight. Crews they were created after nine eleven because of course In that terraced event the flight attendants were the very first people who were killed and they felt that they would like to have some way to protect themselves. And so this is I guess in one training class video flight attendants practice moves on a dummy targeting vulnerable areas such as the is years growing So all i can say is you know disobeying an order from a flight attendant may get you hurt in the future. One comment that. I really liked about it. Was that Sara nelson from the association of flight attendants. Who's been a guest back in. i don't know you guys are better at that Said that when she took the training and she said i think the course ought to be mandatory rather than voluntary and I thought that was an interesting insight. Well the big difference of course. Is that the up on the flight deck. The officers are To carry guns back in the cabin. The flight attendants are pretty much on their own. I wonder how many pilots actually do carry guns. Yeah we don't we haven't heard about that in a long time I'm not even sure how. We'd get the info but You know the flight deck officers programmer flightdeck firearms. Forget what that was called. Yeah i think we hear it occasionally when something goes wrong i think every once in a blue moon one of those officers will leave the gun behind will show up in the wrong place or something like that but they're in locked containers so even if someone comes across the container they're still not going to have easy access to the weapon inside. You know speaking of things. We've not heard in a long time. The beginning of this episode. Mr trescott said he felt like the whole gang is here and you know what i've heard in the background of rob marks microphone are the sekkei. Does that took me a minute to figure out what the thing was. I was hearing but like inner not are old friends are back. Rob's cicadas guys. You want to hold it down out there. I guess noticed. You're so what i had said. Was that the band was back together. It sounds like rob scott. The the cicadas on percussion two percussion background singers boy. Oh boy that brings back some memories. Speaking of which you know. I i was talking to someone. I even sure what the sequence of thoughts were that got beat to it. But i went back and found the rainbows and unicorns episode. Yeah it's something like episode sixty four. I forget now. I wasn't that long ago and i know we have some longtime listeners that remember those days and let me tell you it was really a different kind of show than what we typically produce now and. I'm not so sure we should get back to some more of that Old old time fund so Yeah it was kind of an eye-opener. If if you really wanna go back if you haven't been listening for us To us for that long rainbows and unicorns little I don't know it might change your perception of us. Yeah daniel was just a young pup naive than he says. That about you to rob well. Then that's true. Well i've looked it up. It's episode eighty two. That's long before my time joining the show. Tell us more about what the episode was like. Because as i read the description. I i'm not getting the sense of what you're talking about. Yeah it won't be in the description. It's it's in the The banter Which is somewhat more casual and jocular than you might hear these days now. Vp truthful max. I mean dan. Dan webb used to just pick.

"Flight. Have a future this comes from. Npr's here in now. And i have mixed feelings about this piece. They're talking about you know. The current crop fuel of supersonic transports being developed. But they How they make some sort of odd statements in this pc characterize the concord is is being That plane that ultimately proved to be a flop in the marketplace is. I don't know that's kind of a Which is which is true. It was an economic failure. Well it was. I mean it was an economic failure while the accident occurred causing it. It's demised to go away sooner than later. The cost of fuel and the cost. It's was not a technology. At the time that was causing the maturity of the technology causing prices to go down the concord got more expenses over time and was not finding not fewer and fewer people were able to fly on the vehicle. So i mean that's that comes back. To the next supersonic transport is is. Who's going to be able to use it and will it become an effective way to fly. Relatively inexpensively you know. The concord was for the jets called the jet set. They were flying on jets before everybody else. But you know. I mean yes. It was able to take phil collins from the stadium to jfk stadium in nineteen one thousand nine hundred eighty four four live aid in both stadiums but that being said the concord was not a economic success for either air france british airways i agree. I mean it it just wasn't it It would have been nice if it had been but it just. It just didn't work out that way. I mean that doesn't mean that people wouldn't fly on one or think that it's pretty pretty snazzy but again can you get enough people to fly it regularly and operate the airplane in such a way that you can make a profit on it Jury still out. I mean you know. We lost area on last month of for the business aviation side and now boom is the big new kid on the block and united has an awful lot of faith in them. But again we're gonna find out in five years ten years something like that. If it actually works. I agree if you look at the numbers i if there were small i couldn't remember them exactly so i looked it. Up only twenty conchords wherever built six were prototypes. Only fourteen. were actually used commercially. If you think about. The many billions of dollars were spent in development. It's that was definitely a money loser. I think for all the countries who were involved in as well as the airlines. That operated them. well i guess Left in concord legacy or enough lessons For those others. Who are trying to develop supersonic transports. And if you wanna hear that answer in arabic you can you can. You can listen to me each on al herea from last friday. I was interviewed specifically about the x. Fifty nine and this topic of the concord is. That was pretty much my answer but if it's much more entertaining in the in the original arabic. Do you know what the name of that public out. But what is it called l. Here h you are. Do you know what that means. I thought it was a made up. Name somewhat like aljazeera. How do you know. It doesn't mean something like david's big dummy. Probably but you know in that would sound amazing so rapidly and and and and one of the comments was from my significant other's father who said it was incomprehensible in either language so i took that as a cop that's hilarious. That's really great. So that's what this quite a review that that's what this link is david that that we've got here. That's you on the. That's me on the on the ala here. All here network live television shot. I i guess. I should watch more than the first twenty seconds because i thought i thought it was a joke when i when i sent you an email. I said start at eight minutes in. Oh oh that's what this is. Okay we'll have to. We'll have lincoln the show notes. So do you actually appear on camera. I do i. It was filmed in our new model. Ru mestre museum okay. So this is. I did not look as well as rob does when he's on fox news but you know what it wasn't a bad hit but but you know what those were back in my younger days because you know as you get older. They don't ask you back. Tv camera no longer like shoe so well. The best part was listening to the simultaneous arabic translation. And unfortunately unfortunately they put david english down at lower level so it was pretty hard to hear that at all but i figured henceforth whenever we greet david's. We should do an arabic. So david moslem boy all right so this is beans. Hi david on muscle hamas. Hello in arabic all right so this is a tiktok you know. I don't know take time. I know what it is. But it's a clock clock isn't it so there's some relationship between Someone on tiktok in some duct tape. This is a terrible story. And i think the notes that if we wanted to skip it it would be fine. I'll tell you this is yeah. I know it's just bizarre. Because i i kinda titled it news for duct tape. We have talked a lot in the last six months about the ill behavior and the actually the violent son on airliners something that we've never really known before in this country and we're seeing all kinds of bizarre aberrant behavior and this latest case which was on american airlines. A woman was apparently trying to open the front door while the aircraft was in flight as she see according to the story she was apparently biting spitting and attacking flight attendants prompting the crew to quote. Take her down in duct taper. Not only to the seat but also to deduct tape her mouth as well And the person who video this said that he thought that incident was not handled. Well in the i would agree. Duct taping someone's mouth that that may have gone a little bit too far in in my mind. Know certainly pull tape off. Somebody's mouth you know. You know you might end up getting some skin on the on the tape. You get rid of that unsightly moustache. I i'm sorry..

What's technology involved there because we don't want certain technologies to get into the wrong hands. There's another maybe a quick mention a story in foreign policy dot com. This is the world doesn't want beijing's fighter jets China of course would love to become a major exporter of fighter jets. But they're not really seeing a whole lot of success in nat. There's some interesting statistics some data in this article which talks about the sales export sales between two thousand and twenty twenty and over that time period the united states exported nine point six billion dollars worth of military aircraft ninety nine point six russia exported sixty one point five billion dollars france exported fourteen point seven billion dollars while china only ex Only only exported seven point two billion dollars worth of military aircraft so They've got a ways to go before they could be considered a major exporter of fighter jets. And that's kind of i. You know we talk about china. Being everything You know we buy everything from china these days but they aren lagging behind. You know and trying to catch up but there are such. There's not really the demand because it's sort of saturated by the major powers already like pakistan worked worked with China on making their new one of their newest fighters but they do not have the sphere of influence yet for military equipment that the rest of the so the russians or the united states.

"Maybe it'll be the cabin dedicated to Microsoft or something are who or google or who knows what the things remarkable me as he experienced zero chief for five minutes. It's like whoa. That's a that's a lot of money for five minutes of zero g time. What do you think that goes quickly or do you think five minutes at zero g seems to last for ever i. I'm not sure. I'm not sure i think it's five g five minutes. Zero g sounds awfully nauseating. And i hadn't even thought about this. For example you can buy zero g here on earth by signing up for Forget the name of the company everybody calls at the vomit comet which is an airplane which simulates it and you get much shorter amounts of as zero g. But i'm wondering did anybody see in the Virgin galactic space plane. Do they unbuckle when they were zero g where they fleming abbott. They were if you watch his his statement before he went flying. The other people that were aboard were bouncing around the cabin while he was making his statement about being a child at wanted to fly in to dream big. And you know in etc etc. Richard branson being richard branson but yeah. He and there are picked still photos of branson floating in the cabin. You know you may have an opportunity to float in that cabin yourself. Because branson announced partnership with a ahmaz that charity fundraising site. And you can Sign up for that and you can donate if you want. But it's not. I guess it's not required but if you Well all the donations are going to go to humanity for space which is a. It's a nonprofit and the drawing for two seats on virgin galactic commercial flight so we'll have a lincoln show notes to To this site where you can sign up if you want. the The drawing closes september first. Twenty twenty one and they're going to announce the winner quote around september twenty twenty-ninth twenty twenty one. But yeah no no donation. is required and they have Several categories of donation levels that. Get you Different numbers of entries. So if you donate ten dollars you get a hundred entries fifty dollars you get a thousand entries and if you donate one hundred dollars you get two thousand entries. So we'll have that in the show notes. I don't know do you think you'll Sign up for that. Yeah i i. i'll do my ten dollars and you only need one winning ticket. That's true but of course look at look at the lotteries. David i mean. I'm convinced the chances of winning the lotto or about the same whether you buy a ticket or not but you know i might be wrong but you're right. You only need one pretty. I think about this. At least this isn't an ultra low cost carrier kind of situation where they're going to jam seventy people into one capsule although that is an interesting question. Is that as this ramps up. Will they build larger aircraft or will they jam more seats into this one or this reduce the seat pitch a re- reduce the seat pitch. Yes and do you really want to go with the The low cost space plane. Well hey that's been saying that for years. Do you getting strapped to a listrik missile that was built by the lowest bidder. But you know one thing that i didn't hear come out of this was that it's only been two thousand and two was when spaceship one one the end zaari prize which via s unity is based on. You know spaceship. One was the first one to go go into orbit earn astronaut wings. And i don't remember hearing richard saying any thank you to burke for the technology and mr reten. It's it's his bird you know in maybe a larger version of it but it's still goes back to our old friend. Bert rutan who has changed aviation multiple times in keeps changing aviation well and just imagine if gentleman who runs a ryanair michael o'leary gets involved with the low cost space plane in. I can see that your flight into space might only costs you. I don't know say a thousand dollars but if you want to reserve a seat while that's an additional fifty thousand dollars you want to bring any water with you. That's an additional hundred thousand dollars. Oh you little bring your camera. There's another fifty thousand well. Yeah and and the laboratory will be outside of the spaceship right. That's exactly where i was going. David it's crazy but this is a different era of space travel than we've ever been used to I mean sure. The the shuttle's had all the problems they did but but it was run by the government. There is no money changing hands at least visibly But this is all one hundred percent corporate profit based so who knows what we're going to see exciting times. Well at least exciting times for those who have enough disposable income to play with With their money and get some spectacular rights. Yeah you'd have to be somebody really important like vision jet instructor to be able to afford a ticket on the on the unity. But there's not that many of us all right a little bit of military news. We see from defense news. Lockheed's f thirty five topples competition in swiss fighter contest so David this was Well the swiss Are looking to replace their old hornets. I think right there believe it or not looking to replace the hornets and their f five They still have some f f five es which believe it or easing fs which believe it or not where the very last of their the last of their line But that was up against what seems to be the common theme these days. Which was it was the eurofighter the foul the super hornet and the f thirty five and only one of those was a fifth generation fighter and surprisingly the swiss came to the conclusion that the cheapest out of the four of them was the f thirty five which we find it hard to believe but there also was the added benefit. they're also getting some patriot. Batteries for defense now suisse's a neutral country. It always has been was never allied with new nor was it. Allied with the warsaw pact. But it is higher technology being transferred over to switzerland and they've made their use of their f. Eighteen years very quietly much like the The finish did you know they sort of had f eighteen thousand and just they purchased them. They flew them. But so this is. This is A broadening of the spectrum for the f thirty five but a thirty six of them going to switzerland. Personally it'll be kinda cool watching them operate from mountainside hangers like the swiss. Do you know they like hanging their airplanes from ceilings and then taxiing amount of mountains and flying away so and these are straight f. Thirty five as there's no extended wings or vertical takeoff. They're also getting the associated weaponry weapon weaponry that goes with it. You know and the other story that we have is it. Looks like boeing is got another victory of four their p. three replacement Germany is going to purchase the poseidon to replace their aging p three aircraft. It looks like that process of the p. Three ryan's going away being replaced these days by poseidon aircraft which is a real which is a boeing seven thirty with bombay. Were torpedo bag. So it'd be. Those two stories are major purchases by countries But for lockheed it's another it looks like the f thirty five is rapidly becoming the the f sixteen of choice for the rest of the world for a fifth generation fighter and the irony. Of course though. Is you know all of us complaining. About how expensive they are. The swiss found. They were the cheapest option. So we'll say he's going to germany are under the foreign military sales process. The fms process which Probably a lot of folks all know about if you don't follow you know military aviation Too much but i mean david you can chime in but fms's Well it's a it's a us government program and it's a. It's a way to transfer defense articles and services and training to Others international organizations international partners and that goes for all military purchases..

"With that. We have maybe news from the past week will start off. With the story about the boeing seven. Three seven cargo plane. That went down. Max trescott we have a little bit of an update on that. Yeah this is one of those rare occurrences i think. Most people know that one of the the benefits of flying multi engine aircraft is. If you lose an engine then you have other answer to help get you going. It's very very rare to have double engine failures. But one of these did occur. It was an older boeing. Seven thirty-seven the the newer boeing seven thirty-seven max. It's been having issues and it was a cargo jet which took off from hawaii and it didn't get very far. They were literally only just up a few thousand feet just a couple miles offshore when they called into announced that they had lost the number one engine and that they were coming back straight to the airport and shortly thereafter. They said that there was a chance they were going to lose their other. Engine because it was quote running very hot and that turned out to be exactly the case they ask the air traffic controllers to let the coastguard. No in the controller said yes. They had already been notified. And these two gentlemen were picked up off the The aircraft after it hit the water. Now this occurred about two o'clock in the morning. And if you think about it if you're going to do a water landing it like to be able to see the water so i'm hoping since they were pretty much headed toward the shoreline that they had some type of visual reference outside perhaps lights from A wa who which would have been just a couple of miles in front of them otherwise it would be extremely difficult and dangerous. I think to let down on the water. Because you wouldn't necessarily know your height above the water you wouldn't know when to start to flare So they were probably very lucky. That occurred so close to shore because they may have had some some visual references. And what you referred to max. The update the esp has found the aircraft. And i believe about one hundred and forty feet of water So they are looking to figure out how they could recover Some of the black boxes from that aircraft. I saw one story that said that Do was around four hundred feet down. So i don't know what what's accurate but But also that they they use some interesting technology to find these site side scan sonar and a remotely operated vehicle to To find it but that at least according to the source it reuters. The plane Remnants are too far down to send divers so they're trying to figure like you say figure out how they're going to approach that. I can't imagine it. I can't imagine a A scarier situation in an airplane than than ditching period. I mean especially for seaplane pilots. They understand that relationship with that. That last ten or fifteen feet before you. You touched down in the water but it night. Oh my gosh. I mean i would think that it's pretty much Get it set up as best. You can't and cross your fingers. 'cause i again and i think hopefully what max said is probably true that they were at least facing the shore or headed toward it because otherwise there iof are. You can't tell up from down or left from right but they got out. I mean that's just. I can't wait to hear the story dual engine failure Sounds like something in you know. I'm elite i get get beat up for supposing but it sounds like a fuel issue to me because usually If if one dies in it's not a fuel issue the other one doesn't die But for the other one to go under gay then look good so but at least they got out in one piece well. They were injured one more so than the other which is not surprising. I mean you can just imagine you know. Seven thirty seven You could probably slow at about one twenty but that's still darn hard to To hit the water at that speed well. They went down but rob branson. He went up didn't he. He did in for anybody. That was free Yesterday morning it was quite an event. I honestly didn't know about it until until my daughter mentioned. Hey daddy you're gonna watch that Branson guy get launched into space. And i said yeah one is that. She's all looks like about ten minutes. I want so it was. It was indeed pretty cool and The the the fun part about it. I pulled it up on my laptop because the the the feed hours watching on. Cnbc put their logo right in the upper right hand corner of the screen and it covered up the instruments so we couldn't see how high they were or how fast they were going but then once The the unity broke free. It was just. They were going through ten thousand feet in about three seconds I think they got up to about one hundred and seventy one hundred and sixty hundred hundred seventy thousand feet Before the fuel ran out But it was. It was really cool because of the technology with which we were able to to listen to the people in the cabin and and and watch the technology Give us updates on. What the airpor- the aircraft was doing and i thought it was pretty. I thought it was pretty impressive. I realized i. He's he's a billionaire he built the thing or paid for it and he. He should get a ride but still i. I thought it was pretty cool considering the fact that the. Us government really doesn't have a direct link to that sort of thing anymore. I think by going up himself. Richard richard branson has making a pretty strong statement about his belief in the safety of the system. Which i mean. He's got a a waiting list of potential customers. In fact i read Just today that Elon musk away. Understand was was there watching but the musk has put down a deposit himself for a future flight. But think about that. I forgot what they said. The tickets are going for now. A couple hundred thousand of peace or something and someone says. Do you happen to have a couple hundred grand you could use for a body Oh i don't know maybe a two minute Fun rollercoaster righty. Oh yeah here do you want it and cash or But hopefully someday maybe after half of us are gone this will become more common as Is people have a chance to to look at space From up-close past the you know be able to see the curvature of the earth You guys but if they'd offered me a ride in the in the shuttle. I'd i'd gotten a minute. One of the things. I thought was kind of interesting. Was just the use of the logo you. There's a great photograph. That shows the The aircraft's separating the two of them separating at about forty six thousand feet and on the bottom of the unity the space plane the most prominent thing. You can seize the words virgin across the bottom now. The thing kind of looks like a frog because part of the body isn't really visible. And you see these look like two big legs hanging out from the back of it but it really is kind of remarkable that they figured out how to make this show up so well from the ground all but let's face it. That was the the most expensive publicity stunt that anybody has seen in a long long time. I still think it was pretty neat myself Do you think they'll start selling advertising on the bottom of the space plane. Yeah well you know. What i i would be surprised. If somehow richard branson didn't figure out a way to turn an extra buck or two..

But we'll also have some videos some from sei in some others that Illustrate how these works. And it's not just pure helicopters Right david we see At least one instance where v twenty two ospreys were used with bambi buckets which seems like another aircraft well suited to that absolutely The v twenty two being vertical takeoff and landing in the ability to hover at any vehicle with the ability to hover. Okay not an f. Thirty five. B but That you can sling load is a perfect solution for bambi bucket and the and the nice thing about this technology is in the past. We've talked about mathis which is the mobile firefighting systems. You can load into like c. One thirty or other firefight area firefighting systems. Where the ability of the aircraft to fight fires is built it permanently. The bambi bucket solution is does not really affect the rest of the usage of the helicopter. The sling loaded bambi. Bucket is one of those added technologies that you can just put on the helicopter like a you eight sixty in the air national guard or national in the national guard and use it as a national guard helicopter but when you have firefighting seasons and this is even a curse here in new jersey. The new jersey air national guard uses bambi buckets to fight fires in the pine barrens. But the rest of the year. They're just flying normal. Uh sixteen michigan so it's a wonderful technology that just adds to the capability of a helicopter fascinating. So yeah we encourage you to take a look at some of the videos and some of the information that will have in our show notes and maybe next time you're watching the news and you see a An operation Being being covered at a wildfire yield. You'll know that you're looking at a at a bambi bucket. Perhaps and you'll know a little bit more about The bambi bucket. And what's behind them. So sergio we really appreciate you coming on the show and talking with us and We like exploring kind of little nooks and crannies of aviation firefighting with bambi. Buckets is is one of those areas. So it's been really instructive and we wanna thank you. Well thank you again afford. It is opportunity.

"It is is. It's a safe future for for for helicopters operators because it gives the The capacity to shed water as he's loading on the first time so the he's big enough the feel a cycle off the helicopter helicopters little heavier and he doesn't want to leave the full bucket so he goes to the dip. Fill up with water now. He can shed some water out before flying out and and then he can't control the maximum load of his lifting the point. Is there a way for the pilot to know how many gallons are left in a bucket for those multiple drops. No it's just by his feeling and of how much is his flying with and Nala to answer for your question as we having developmentally are testing right now. Actually this product ending spain We have developed a version of the we. Call that the bumpy max That's the the the trade name for is multi drop buckets good name. I like it bundy max. Yeah good name and And now we have tested. The i max. Which is intelligent. Max ended so. This equipment has a touch screen display. That goes with the operate on the helicopter or a stalled on the cockpit of the the helicopter on this such screamed the pilot also program the volume of who went to lift like seventy percent of the that capacity and he can also program the how many drops he's going to make one two three four drops and then once that is done on the trigger. He's going to control. Every time is going to be doing what he has read. Set on the screen and so with that type of control than he will have a unnoticed overview of how much is left on the last drop or what he has programmed the death particular dropped to to be. That's fascinating i. it is. Yeah and it's says we see it on the news. Right there was all the fires that seem to be occurring. Each year was was greater frequency. I don't know if that has represented a growth in your volume or your customer base. Sergio or with the increase in Wildfires that we're seeing are more companies or more organizations getting into the firefighting market Or is it just. The same group of of folks in their utilization is going up. How's that impact Sei it's the business has been growing steadily. Yes in i think of course Much to do with volume of fires. Not only north america about all over the world and And before they used to talk about the fire season and a symptom time of the year. Way we we'd be firefighting alastair but as no more fire. Susan its throughout the year. Fall perations emmanuel operators. They're becoming multinationals operator so he wants season they have data firefighting in north america and then on the season here. They're went to move their assets to to south america to asia and going to be in there Yeah so we have seen increasing number of operators and the helicopters on the area for fighting community. There max trescott. You're y- you're seeing lots of fires on your side of of the country You're seeing a ramp up already. This season well here in california. We've already had a few fires none as big as we had the last year. One of the things. I was intrigued to learn when i interviewed the california air. National guard last year about A rescue that they had done was that he really seemed to be at least in the summertime in the full-time firefighting business. I had thought of national guard. Helicopters is being used for other kinds of things. But it really sounds like They're doing a lot of the heavy lifting here for for firefighting in california so lot of different agencies involved including the national guard right and we have we have all other products which is related to the line of prague relate relate to air flight which are the ignition initial fears which is fighting fire with fire. And that is. It's quite a poplar on technology and the feminine products that we have development and being used by by the same off the same group of operators. That are firefight with the buckets. So wait a minute now. So you're fighting fire with fire. How does that work because you you you know. The expression of the burn so into fires go to a certain direction and they went to go back on the other side. Start a fire from there so that fire comes and meets the other flyer It to start at flight. You need to ignites a fire. And we have a product line which uses a ignatius fears is being dropped from a helicopter that when it drops to ground after fueled Start to combustion and And burned that lewis fears that grew starts fires. The any fuel that is available down the ground. So those are the drags. The dragon eggs quite a great name. Like that yeah. i wasn't. I know that that that that existed. That's that sounds a lot safer than deploying people out to to light those fires. Those backfires I mean that's gotta be a really dangerous job so if you can accomplish the same thing by dropping these From from a helicopter What a what. A great solution and also quite used for for the controlled burns the day. Do before the fire season windy day already mapped the area and a senior day is a very high concentration of potential fuel for wildfires to get out of control so they go there in a different time of the season and they do a controlled burn of that material so to reduce do risk of very dense high fires during the fire season. Very cool dragon eggs. I've got to remember that term. i know that's about. Don't ask about the drag up students to do some research about. How are we already figured that out. She was a bartender. Warren boise idaho. a different. Yes but she was hell on. Wheels never wanted cross her all right and let's face it. That was the shot. She sur bambi. Serve on the part of the dragon.

"But how far beneath the helicopter is that thing hanging. Typically typically the large helicopters have c. Two hundred fits long line to how. I'm just imagining a big bucket with you. Know ten or twelve thousand pounds of of water hanging two hundred feet beneath the helicopter. There must also be some some kind of wind limitations in which you can use that bucket. I i imagine right. I'm sure yeah. Of course the the the slugging bucket will restrict the the flight speed of the helicopters. Now well i guess. I was thinking that you wouldn't wanna get that bucket. Maybe in turbulence bouncing around or moving side to side or anything like that I'm just curious if they're ma- maybe there isn't a limitation. I don't know but again. That's why i'm not a helicopter pilot. Yeah in my. It's it's quite quite stable in this even flying empty. The flights is quite stable. And of course when it's it's loaded it's a it's a heavy load the at the end of that line so it's going to be a very stable flight. I think i'd still like to watch it from the ground myself. Well not directly johnathan. No no speaking of which sergio Tell us a little bit about the mechanism for releasing the water or controlling the the volume of the release. The speed with which the load is released. How is all of that. Handled the first bobi bucket. An actually Will turn forty years next year. E two thousand twenty two thirty was invented in conceived in a nineteen eighty two so forty years in the first one was it was which is still think popular one that we we have in the market. It's one single drop meaning when applied to pull the trigger on the whole load florida's displaced at once and that volvo is it's made halsall fabric. It's it's sort of other that we will collapse out when the water is being released and then as sousa days no more weight. So the electromechanical mechanisms The bucket control had we pull back under inwards and then it will close and then with the weight of the water. The water will squeeze the death volve in ensue. So the water will not leave until you go through the next drop Released that control cable that we will displace the other dow again. And what is going on is ingenious but simple process. Those are the best solutions right. The ones that are the simplest and and therefore less likely to fail operation. When you go back to your previous question that we didn't comment about maintenance. I mean they're a lot of small components and adjustment that needs to be done to make sure all the functionality of volvo will take place in the correct way so how they replace adults string holiday adjusted. The detention and control had so. It's mechanical system. We sus real Nights and and locks and lock mechanisms and cables. It's quite complex of equipment. And he certainly don't want the water to drop out when you don't intend to when you're not over your target So you have a you want it to be. It needs to be incredibly. Reliable is there. Are there any Regulators certifications required for this kind of equipment for the bambi bucket. No it's actually. There's no need for stc As long as it is linked down the outside the helicopters that is no. There's no requirement for s deceit. Go ahead rob again. I'm i'm thinking of the logistics of this whole thing as a pilot. I mean other than max. You can probably get this. I mean imagine flying and then losing twelve thousand pounds of cargo in two seconds on a machine. I can imagine helicopter jumping back up into the air but when when the bucket is again. I'm thinking of the worst fires that i've seen on the television i. How close would a bucket get to the fire In order to or how close does it need to get to the fire in order to be really useful. It's a very good question and to be honest. I don't know precisely how how far flung for throwing the flyer to the buck. Sorry but the are flying. Of course the closer you get. Probably you're going to have a better concentration of water on on the drop to end the florida up. You are so it'd be more dispersion into operation off the water right so it it's it's a trick Control on the part of the planet to make sure he has his getting on the right altitude front from the fry but then also days is speed of the helicopter. Why he can fly on. A certain speed is going to create like stream of water dropping during the period off that father being opened but on that line also going back to the previous question mean this is the single drop bucket then later on the. Sei has developed a few models with a multi drop capability. So there's this buckets is way more complex. has a gated volve. It can be controlled from the trigger by the by the pile or the operate drop stairs and Can be opened several times. So one load of twenty six hundred ganz can be dropped a several operations according to the magnitude of the fire according to the operations If they are on at the end of the firefighter where they're going after the hot spots and they went to drop a little bit of water here a little bit of water dare so they we that capability to with the same load them make several drops interesting interesting and it's not several compartments each dedicated to a particular drop it still one One bucket of water. But what you're you're controlling the the drop quantity by the use of these vows. So yeah it's fascinating to see how that has added relatively new develop intercept around for awhile. All being being around for wyoming to you know do some all have been developed with that capability to be replaced by by new development but keeping in mind the same december requirements. And more importantly.

"Is the most used ways to to to bring the bucket to the helicopter will fly the bucks over a lake or a river or a swimming pool and dip the the bucket easily water so they buy will turn sideways and sink immediately and then the helicopter will fly out of the water with the bucket full. That is the most used approach if the bucket does not have any additional accessories to work as a power feel accessories and down so that we do have different alternatives off doing that derek. a snorkel pump. That can be installed on the on the side of the bucket to pump water from shallow source of water. So by using those pumps. You don't have to look for don't you. Don't have to have a deep source of water as long as you have a minimum of brock. Smoke eighteen inches of depth That's good enough to afford the pump to get in and and stuck suck into water into the bucket. And i could see that that could be important. If like you say if the water sources shallow the maybe you have a river. That's not very deep. Some other small pond Some place where you do have water in enough of it. But it's it's not deep. Enough to to submerge the entire the entire bucket. The helicopter i assume would be a hovering while the water is being sucked into the into the bucket in those cases. I got a two part question about that. You said the the model twenty eight hundred is twenty eight hundred gallon capacity that is two thousand eight hundred gallons capacity esto and It's equivalent to ten thousand ten thousand liters waters almost sorry it's twenty six hundred a gallon. Us galveston ninety liters. So that's still thirteen. Fourteen thousand pounds Us fight do the calculations roughly but what. What kind of a machine would carry a weight like that. David's probably the one to answer that. But i don't know helicopter do do i see flying to most of this. The largest are chinooks some folks in north america and some chinooks like the dutch airforce to have several chinooks. Npr one of the oldest customers use in depth particular. Silent manny many. Are flying those buckets. Monday are and how long does it take in a lake. Let's say to fill a twenty eight hundred gallon Bucket i mean. I'm just wondering how long the pilots there hovering Again a raw beef is today. They go for a dip. Sort of watering lake. For instance. they're going to to sink the the bucket it. It's only the time to for to sinking and then lifted up. So it's very quick now if they're using the pump hookah capabilities because of the depth limitation than the plumped for that size of a bucket. Our bump has four. It's a four pump unit system as day delivery Total capacity of eighteen hundred eighteen under gallons per minute so that is the flow speed to fill up those that bucket so yeah somewhere between one and two minutes hovering to fill it up the david. Maybe you're a good one for this too but When a helicopter carrying a load like that that's hung from a sling of slung loads. I'm sorry yeah. Wh what is the what they called. Sling load sling loading okay. So so what that. Must change the The flight characteristics quite a bit absolutely especially on a on a chinook one of the things when you become a pilot of like a chinook for a u h sixty or huey you have to go through specific sling loading trading. Usually you also have to have an observer on the helicopter to be able to watch the Item being hung underneath something as the size of of the twenty eight hundred on. A schmuck probably is is not just slung from center but has supporting lines to other parts of the helicopter. So it doesn't really sway and it's an intricate process. You've got to observe the thing and you've got to make sure that it wasn't lateral swing across the helicopter as well as you know moving parallel with helicopter as well as against the helicopter. So sleet loading is not an easy thing but almost all military helicopters are capable of doing even minimal sling loading i mean from. Uh ones up two chinooks and every even even the v twenty two is capable of sling loading an item and eventually. I'm sure we'll see. V twenty doing firebombing. Also well how about that kind of training in in this case with bambi buckets sergio does. Sei get involved in providing the training or does does your customer handle that on their own the customers of course they can handle their own ends We don't have internal capabilities or resource to do like the the train for the flight in the helicopter. Operation part of it We do offer to customers the the repair maintenance and operation of the bucket itself so we ever customers welcome to come here to to our facility in canada and And go through a three four day training process when they buy on when they are new to to bumpy buckets. And we we work with the feel Operators out there that are in the business of providing training on operational sling load longlining operations and vertical reference tampa operations and training pilots for novara air firefighting operation. So yeah that we refer our customers to us. Partners that makes sense. Sure sure Sergio what kind of material is used for the buckets and you mentioned to. The maintenance kind of maintenance is required to ensure that these are operate safely and effectively as far afforded material for the the bucket is manufacturer out of a engineered industrial fabric. The base fabric. It's made of nylon polyester top of composite material and then it's overlaid coated with urethane on the outside. It's a very very robust to end Strong curbs fabric. So then of course it's designed to the to the to the shape and configuration and volume and the size so panels are cutting in specific dimensions than they are wild together using radiofrequency welding technology. So i'm wondering what was the state of the art prior to the bambi bucket in other words were helicopters us prior to its invention. And what did they use before. There was a bambi bucket. That goes before longtime go but the idea of dropping waterfront helicopter probably came before even be black cats by was dumb. I came up with this unique idea of developing this bucket and became what you're talking about now bambi bucket. I was trying to imagine the The twenty eight hundred again just because twenty six hundred. I guess it is because of the size but how far beneath the helicopter is that thing hanging. Typically typically the large helicopters have c. Two hundred fits long line to how. I'm just imagining a big.

We kind of do it and maybe the drummer. The guy that keeps the pace going David vanderhoek far aviation historian and military aviation. Expert is here with us. Hey everyone i. I don't want to belittle this but To everyone who reached out to us over the last week about brad. Thank you for taking the time i. I know that we're having trouble keeping up with all of the emails and stuff but We miss him.

And that's rob mark. He's with us. He's the senior editor of flying magazine. And he's the publisher of the jet wine blog. Hey good evening to all of you guys. It is nice to be back with part of the band and Before we talk about anything else. I just want to Offer listeners my apology that i could not make it too. I couldn't join you Last week when recorded that great episode about brad so as a mea culpa of mea couple of some sorts There's a story coming out tomorrow in flying's e. news that is All brad focused and It was my particular version of how i remembered him and I i hope people enjoy it Because he really he is a funny guy you knew him and you talk to him and he asked a bunch of goofy questions and he just was always there and he always went. Okay let's launch pad got now Lake that parts you guys recorded about him saying rob whereas i just thought that was hilarious But you know he's he is really going to be missed. And i think that's what i tried to capture was some of the Some of my thoughts and feelings about what it's like to lose another Another friend and So anyway if you don't get it. Listeners rob jet wind dot com. And i'll make sure you get a copy of it so all right again. Thanks for inviting me. Oh it's good to have your up all right well. Let's introduce our guest for this episode. It's sergio fuca amati he's the aerial firefighting director at s e. i industries. They make the bambi bucket systems. How sei industries is an industrial fabric products producer. They were established in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy eight their best known for these bambi bucket systems that are used in aerial firefighting operations. All over the world. These are they're lightweight. They're strong flexible firefighting buckets. They were first introduced in nineteen eighty-two and they become an enormously successful firefly firefighting tool in fact bambi buckets now used in over one hundred fifteen countries by more than one thousand helicopter operators but ask sergio he has over twenty five years of international business management experience. He's a professional engineer. He's registered project management professional and sergio has led the aerial firefighting division at sei industries in delta british columbia since twenty seventeen so sergio. Welcome to the airplane geeks. Podcast hello everyone. Thank you for does opportunities and great to be here with this team from airplane geeks and your audience and it's too good afternoon from the west coast here in delta the greater vancouver area so nice to be here well. We're very pleased to have you on. It's probably worth mentioning that serve launch pad murray was instrumental in Working with With you and being able to bring us the story of the bambi bucket. So let's let's jump right in and talk about that sergio. Can you describe for us. What is a bambi bucket. And obviously one of the first question should be. Why is it called a bambi bucket. All right So you you have already mentions Show due to your introduction about the the bundy buckets about bumpy bucket to be simple explained. What it is that big orange bucket that you see slang under the helicopters wendy are on a area firefighting operations so used to pick up water from any water source. Saddam the ground and lift over and drop on the fires. So it's It's a flexible fully collapsible water bucket and made off the special industrial fabric and hearing delta b. c. and You an reduce the many different sizes and models and today Being used by by most of operators military force around the world that are in the area fighting application a sergio. You mentioned that. They are available in different sizes. Maybe tell us a little bit about what that size range is. And what are the different applications for the different bucket sizes although sizes the the size range from seventy two d prefer gallo. Us gallons or litres. Let's go with gallons gallons. Seventy two gallons from the smaller one all the way up to twenty eight hundred gallons and of course. They are spread out in the different size according to the different capacity of the helicopters. So the smaller buckets for small helicopter and the largest bucket for the the largest helicopter in. What's the process for filling them with water. I think that there are maybe a couple of different types of bambi bucket systems that employ different methods of filling the the bucket with water. Sorry before going to that question if you hold it for for next to you. The first question. Which is about the bambi name. So i want to. I don't want to forget about a give you a little note on that regard semi. They're they're managed a few stars that i have heard bear about the origin of the bundy name and one of them. Being bamboos. it comes from the disney Deer Corrector dared bombie was made to protect the little animal in the forest. The otter started that people here a lot is about boembe was actually the name of a waitress. Work on the In boise idaho where the firefighters due to go. Hang up there for happy hour but when you ask. Don't arnie the side of the story about his name. Don't arnie's inventor of the bumpy bucket and he has a totally different story. Of course this goes back to nine thousand nine hundred eighty seven when the bucket was already being a starting to the production here and our facility and so he had he was interviewed for a holster on the cbc to television here named blog fortuin and and they became friends. And then bob took him for dinner one night and they don't you know what you have to have a name for this product and so dong did want to to get to a series about it and then just joke has said oh caught boembe bucket and so bob Except the name and he's still. Let's let's reveal that into and he put a list of pros cause of keeping or not keeping the name and start short sheelah. That became the name of this product. So when you ask a body to say the name comes from that dinner that i had with the fortune. I like the one about the waitress. Better just think it has more interesting and then everybody wants to know. Do you have a picture of bambi. So is this bambi bucket. A complimentary Name or or not perhaps but anyway yeah regardless of You know what the what the story is our which one you like i. It's a name that you don't forget once you once you hear it it it kind of sticks sergio tonight just dovetail often next the last last comment about the sizes of the buckets. Do you determine the gallons by the weight of the water or that. The helicopter can lift or or is there just a specific reason why you picked a picked waters heavy for all intents and purposes so i mean is that the reason why the different levels of the bucket is the weight of the water. Yes to be honest. I don't know how the whole decision about whether weight or volume. Of course when you when you designed the bucket you talk late. The volume of liquid goes inside of that particular bucket. So and then from there. You're stuck wasted the declassification of different size of to the volume and convert either two gallons or or liters and all the numbers of the models off the the buck is related to the actual to the number equivalent to the gallons us gallons of water so the last two numbers of each model is going to be represented a the the number of gallons snow with plight by ten very good that makes sense. That makes it easy to To identify Correct so sergio. Tell us a little bit about how. The buckets are filled with water. The.

The Future of Star Wars, Marvel, Pixar, and Disney's Movie Monopoly

"I think we have to go and see twenty three right off. The top. I manage just told me that she read a thorough examination of the announcements made at this this weekend event. How are you feeling. Are you excited about the disney plus era upon us yeah but you have to do this. Julia minoshe from nonfiction chris farley watched non-fiction. You can just look blog. I clarified clarifying. I i think for disney and for me <hes> possibly in different ways you know disney has a strong brand as we know and it is quite articulate clearly articulated ticketed in this and i think that there will be many people including parents and star wars fans who have end marvel fans watch look forward to and i will be sending ending my streaming money elsewhere very interesting not surprising take from chris you are the coast of a podcast called the watch a long running podcast a hot. It looks closely a culture at large but particularly television a lot of t._v. Shows and disney plus. Here's my take on them. Don't care. I'd like to talk to you guys about the movies that were announced cheshire. Okay aside from the mandatory and i do care about this. Say which i care about all the there are two more stories memories t._v. shows. I'm sorry yet theoretically the mental learn is the only thing i have a clear percents of what it is and what it's going to be which actually does feel like the star wars show that we should have had like twenty five years ago very like <hes> grounded in the dirt small character look as opposed to the intergalactic battle kind of t._v. Show the other shows. I don't even know what are those shows. Isn't there a urine mcgregor. Obi obi wan the whole thing right. I think he's lovie wine. Even as i was saying it out loud i was like oh got him getting the names right. Am i getting the names right. Have you guys like a mandate. We're going to do a star wars episode so you should host and she she has ever told you. The story of this is a fun game to play. If you're like in a car and really board is you can ask you just tell you the plot of a movie a husband and i do this sometime and we maybe we should just do a podcast sometimes because it's really wild what people remember but famously i was asked to do the plot of star wars and i gave the entire plot with like intense analysis of the sexual tension between luke and leia and then also hans solo and the trash chute and all this stuff and just like did not mention the desktop the sexual tension between hansel and the trash chute. We are in russian. Oh yeah and i even got but at no point. Did i mention like the death star them blowing it up like the central plot of the movie just didn't exist in my brain spoiler. Sorry we have revealed views here officially that the death star is destroyed and star wars a new hope very sorry to everybody who hasn't seen episode four chris. Would you make the movie news non non non star wars edition so we got some moral news. We got a little look at the lady and the tramp live action yeah so for most of my life. Disney has been like a non factor <hes> it was a i never really grew up in disney household and a lot of these <hes> sort of legacy titles. Don't really mean a lot to me. I don't even know if i actually seen bambi like for instance. <hes> so a seminal event in movie history interesting to have the doorway into disney is marvel and star wars for me but now being introduced to this huge volume play and that that is kinda gonna come attendant with all this stuff and one of the things that we probably talk about when we get into the summer movie awards. That's been kind of confusing for me. This summer is having take things like aladdin seriously. You've been doing that no but it's like that takes up a lot of airspace. Have you seen either aladdin no yeah so you're not taking taking it serious. Oh i'm not taking it seriously but wouldn't you say that it plays a larger role in like pop culture in general because of the like the volume of the megaphone is that much louder pre everything builds everything else and now you've got these three things that disney legacy titles marvel and star wars say nothing of pixar and everything else that take up. I mean this is what you're saying a stranglehold on your brain. It's like sixty five percent of the airwaves man. It's true although in nineteen ninety-two aladdin was a big deal to so if you were hosting the watch which i don't know what would it have been call one thousand nine hundred smells like teen spirit yeah exactly if you were hosting smells like teen spirit the podcast you can get out of your windows media player six days to download it would still be forced to talk about and in some form or fashion but you're right the the the amount of mindshare that they have right now obviously is overwhelming and this is. I mentioned this biennial event. It doesn't happen every year the fact that it happened at this exact time while we're going through a me when wesley just had this conversation last week on the show we were like we are being choked out. You know brock listener has come to choke out with content. You guys get that referenced. I it's about wrestling. It's he wasn't in fighting with my family to today. Thank you to too much time on this podcast. I it is interesting like i could not help but see the announcement black panther too and just how far away that is. We are a thousand days away from black panther too. That's a long time. It's a it's become a cliche to say. We're all gonna be dead by then or the world will be on fire but it's possible that some things are significantly different culture at large a thousand days from now. We may not even have t._v.'s in one thousand days i don't. I don't know what's coming so to be planning that far ahead for something thing particularly something that is so anticipated yeah. I thought it was so strange. I thought it was almost like teasing away. That's funny because i had the opposite reaction which she's like this thing that we have been predicting for a long time which is disney as monopoly is here the this we have seen the realignment of the studios and the streaming services and kind of what the big names are going to be and we have been like well disney's just going to own everything and disney will have this movie and disney will have the streaming service and the men were in all of this i._p. And this was just the confirmation a certainty of okay they have consolidated. All of the i._t. Is together they have their distribution plan ready and disney plus and what what we expected to happen is going to happen and i have an easier time imagining how black panther too is going to fit into entertainment as we consume consumer than i do like basically any movie that a traditional movie studio is releasing or even most of the t._v. Shows on basic cable at this point but i think that the interesting thing that came out of some of these announcements between black panther being nine hundred days away and spider man being excommunicated from the is that there are a lot of people waiting on line. You know what i mean to get in to get their big screen time. There's a lotta characters. There's a lot of filmmakers producers who are all like so. This was a a huge hit and we've got to wait like four years and my guys gotta be in like a couple of thirty seconds spots and post credit sequences of the internals. That's you're telling me it's like that. I'm not single. Black panther would walk away from you. I don't think he michael jordan's. Not gonna get did going to do that but the spiderman thing i thought was indicative of indicative of so he being like let's go let's. Let's do another one most definitely but i think it's because while i think what you're saying is right that the playing field is kind of settled in a way that it's at least for the next next six to twelve months is going to be disney versus net flicks and then h._b._o. Max will come along and then you know. Universal will clarify what they're plays for the most part we we know what the short-term clarity around things but three years from now. I don't know if there's going to movie theaters close three years from now. I don't know if we will have have forty five hundred movie screens three years from now so getting that far ahead of ourselves. I think you're right chris that there's a desire to kind of plant flags. There's there has been mark. Harris has been writing about about this for coming up on ten years. Now this sort of like we plant our flag on a film that we don't even know what it is seven years ahead of time black panther too in particular those struck me as weird because it might be after the rise of skywalker. Maybe avatar to the most anticipated movie that exists that we're aware of world is that i am. I overstating it to say that will add. I think the avatar to is a good example. I mean not that. It's going to go black panthers. The wait between black panther one and two is nothing nothing resembling avatar in avatar too but it is indicative the fact that i think that like without seeing a single piece of footage. I think a lot of people are like. Does anybody still care about avatar. I was gonna ask coup is anticipating. I've talked to you besides get mine. I don't now i don't know but underestimate james cameron at your peril because this is what happened with titanic and this is what happened with avatar people were like is this going to be good. I don't know if i care about this and then boom biggest movie of all time and then biggest movie of all time twice he did that twice. People were like i don't know he lost his fastball. He's a weirdo. He loves to play with his toys doesn't understand humanity so i i wouldn't underestimate cameron trouncing

And all that fun stuff. That's all we talk about on this pod. So if you wanna listen in just find us on itunes or Stitcher or pretty much anywhere. You can find a podcast like this lovely one were hosting right now. Talking tech. We're filling in Frankel, Jeff. Yes. Hi, Jeff hope you're enjoying your time off. So. Yeah, right now, we're gonna talk about streaming services because we have another one on the list Disney. Plus, it is among eight thousand give or take a couple hundred streaming services that are out there. The big six. Or what we calling the ones that are either already available that are dominant and the three new ones that are due this year that we think will be dominant. So that's Netflix Amazon Hulu, apple plus Disney. Plus, and whatever Warner media calls it their service, which will have like, friends and some other stuff. I don't know they're weird. But it's the AT and T Time Warner merger streaming service. Let's feng. Let's just hope they don't use pause on the title. We'll see what God now, so Disney. Plus, they announced all the shows and movies and all the stuff they're going to have on there and the price. It's going to be I believe six ninety nine per month or roughly seventy dollars for the year. What's your take on Disney postal may take on Disney? Plus is that their way better at this than apple is? And that's probably because they've been in the entertainment industry for many decades and apple thinks that they can just reinvent the wheel with a black and white video of famous people talking about the importance of art. And not give out any details or show any clips and Disney knows that they need to wet fans. Appetites the price is insane. The price is going to be a big deal because I don't think apple can afford to make the price that low and Warner media certainly can't it's way lower than that flicks right now, they're most popular package is twelve ninety nine a month. And the family angle is not to be trifled with, you know, Disney's been family for many decades, and they've survived better that a lot of the Oji Hollywood studios. Well, I mean for Disney the big advantages, they own all the content, and you know, at least with Netflix, and Hulu what they've done is. They've gotten the rights to a lot of shows and movies, and then they've kind of backed in with their own original shows. Disney has a ton of stuff already. They have their own Disney properties. They have marvel they have Star Wars apples at a at a bit of a disadvantage because they have none of the properties right now. It's going to be all originals. It's going to be a lot of originals at once more originals than any other service has yet to debut with. So that's a new strategy. I don't think it will work as well. And I think Disney has low key been preparing for this for decades because they had that whole Disney volt thing which ends up being in their favor. Because like it's not like we own a lot of those things on DVD or we're used to seeing them a lot earlier. So the idea that like I watch Bambi whatever I want now is very appealing because I couldn't when I was a kid, and they're going to have a lot of the marvel movies out first and foremost on their service same Star Wars. So there's a lot of incentive to get involved between this and the price. I think that I mean, I think it's going to be very competitive. And I think you're gonna see a lot of people jump on it early on. And. Yeah, family friendly. I don't think they're any kind of adult are level type movies TV shows or anything it's mostly very much. Surrounding kids and family stuff. So it's going to be a very interesting niche. The streaming wars have begun that Tatan Bumba Obam that'll do it for talking tech today.

Missouri man must watch ‘Bambi’ monthly as part of poaching punishment, judge rules

"And we'll start with animal. Poaching. A Missouri man who had legally hunted and beheaded hundreds of deer is in jail tonight. The judge sentenced him to a year and something else the convicted dear poacher must also watch the Disney movie Bambi once a month in his jail cell for the next year. So why are people hunting animals illegally in the first place? Well, they call this trophy hunting another name for it. And it's when hunters illegally take the heads of animals and leave behind the carcasses as one game official put it poachers, usually take deers Antlers to make some money in this case. It was all about the thrill of the kill humane. Society says American trophy hunters kill one hundred twenty thousand animals illegally every year. We're talking elephants for ivory tusks bears mountain line. Nhs unit. So could you refresh us out on the movie Bambi because the this man has been forced to watch it? Right. I mean, it's been a long time. I it certainly one of the great classic Disney animated films released in the early nineteen forties. Deer's mother is killed by hunters. And without saying too much about the film. It's it's heartbreaking story, and the hope is this man might learn a thing or two about sensitivity as well as the law. So how authorities catch this man in action? He and some other members of his family were all involved in this. But he's the one who was sentenced to this particular crime in Missouri's department of conservation leaned on a public hotline where they get tips under the name operation game thief. So they got help from citizens on this. So he seems poaching is always in the news. I guess. Yeah. And in two cases, come to mind most recently a few years ago, you remember the American dentists who paid fifty thousand dollars or something to kill the animal that became known as C soul, the lion and going further back. Donald Trump sons were trophy. Hunting in Zimbabwe. We're talking seven eight years ago where they killed an elephant and a cheetah
