How Far Can a Plane Glide Without Engines?
"In nineteen eighty three a perfect storm of technical issues and unit conversion mistakes left an air canada boeing seven sixty seven without fuel. Some forty one thousand feet. That's twelve thousand. Five hundred meters over central canada before long. It lost power to both engines after descending rate of twenty five hundred feet. That's seven hundred sixty meters per minute. The pilots were able to glide their boeing all the way to save albeit bumpy landing on a race car track. The pilots were hailed heroes and the airplane was dubbed the gimli glider after the town where it landed essentially any plane can glide if the need arises and in situations where all the engines have failed. Pilots have to expect the plane to do some gliding. Without the thrust those engines are built to provide. The plane can't help but lose altitude but how far can a plane glide when it's not designed to be a glider aircrafts whose engines conch out at higher elevations can glide for longer periods of time. This is one of the reasons. Why shellenberger and skulls hudson river landing was so impressive. They had to glide their way to safety and a matter of minutes from a pretty low altitude. Everything happened very fast on. Us airways flight forty nine fifty one. The plane hit the birds within two minutes of taking off and just three minutes later. The plane was in the hudson river. Obviously planes come in all shapes and sizes. So if you're flying one it's important to know your vehicles. Best glide speed in a nutshell. This is the speed that will let your airplane travel the farthest distance while sacrificing the least amount of altitude. A related concept is the minimum sink speed or the pace of travel that will maximize how much time you can spend gliding depending on your situation. You may choose to prioritize time over distance or vice versa
SIA 777 Stopped Climb at 500ft After Crew's Waypoint Entry
"Okay first up. We have an incident. A singapore airlines triple seven stopped. Climb at five hundred feet after the cruise way point. Entry error pilots. Of a singapore airlines boeing triple seven three hundred eighty are inadvertently entered an incorrect waypoint altitude constraint prior to departure resulting in several alerts from the ground proximity warning system as the aircraft climbed out of shanghai prudan. The is put on the. That's what it's going to be exactly right The takeoff runway assign had been changed from three or four left three five right which meant that. The aircraft standard departure route switched from hotel sierra november two x to hotel sierra november. One to this requires updating the flight management computer with a new departure route. The first way point on this route identified as papa delta zero six two did not have any speed or altitude crossing constraint which meant that the field on the computers route display was blank. Although this is not abnormal the captain quote preferred to have the speed constraint explicitly displayed says the singaporean transport safety investigation bureau and its inquiry into the second of september. Twenty nineteen incident. He decided to enter the speak constraint of two hundred and fifty knots as shown on the departure charts the triple seven's flight management computer required speed constraints to have a corresponding altitude constraint. So the captain chose to enter five hundred a meaning that the papa delta zero six two point should be crossed at five hundred feet or above but the captain inadvertently mis-keyed typing five hundred rather than five hundred a which neither crew member noticed. This error meant that the aircraft's autopilot would limit the aircraft of five hundred feet ahead of the way point crossing
Interview With Co-Founder of the ArkanSTOL Ozark Backwoods Challenge
"So joining us virtually today from kansas city. Is john young. John is one of the co founders of an event called arkansas ozark backwoods challenge. Which may sound familiar to you if you're an avid reader of ea v magazine but in case you missed. January's issue john. Why don't you tell listeners. A little bit about the events and how this whole thing got started. Well first of all first of all how and christina thank you so much for For the opportunity to represent all the folks involved in the in the backwoods challenge and it is that kind of a labor of love for us. And and we're excited at you know at what's happened in your coverage on it and really excited about what might happen in the future. So the the backwoods challenge itself is held down in north west arkansas. And it's kind of a hidden gem of an area backwards flying. The a lot of people know about they think about backcountry backwards flying. They think about. Going to idaho and montana and alaska all that or maybe you know the appalachians And the east coast. But they don't think a lot about what's available right in the mid west and there is an area that encompasses kind of southern missouri Southeast kansas south or north west oklahoma and predominantly sorry northeast oklahoma and predominantly north west. Arkansas that has mountains it can go up to his highest re thousand feet and It's just there's a slew of of runways down there that are there are truly challenging. Runways anything from five hundred feet. Too long runways. It can accommodate jets all the same region so That became the focus of an area. Where a lot of us go to To do the backcountry flying to learn and our skills and specifically a place called birds adventure center
Interview With Kelly Keller
"In today's guest is former. Alpa employees kelly. Keller kelly under private pilot's license. When she was just twenty years old she comes from a family of aviation and she calls herself a spoiled brat of aviation which seems a little harsh until you realize. She grew up flying where their father and a stagger wing. For most of her youth she learned to fly in tabora so at age nineteen got a private licence at twenty and she's been flying ever since she's worked for textron. Ao pa and now. She's currently the regional sales manager for the southeast for garment kelly. Thanks so much for joining us on the there. I was podcast so kelly. You have quite a hair raising story about flying your family back. In one. seventy two from gaskins white river resort on the way back to hicks airfield. You're flying. you're flying clubs one seventy two and experienced an engine failure. Yeah it was. It was definitely kind of the perfect storm of of situations because it was supposed to be a husband and my baby moon so to speak at seven months pregnant with our first child and had him in the airplane Labrador retriever in the backseats. Obviously mailo co-pilot with me. Yeah we were going to gaskins. White river resort for one last hurrah. It was a great trip really recommend going but on the way back i was over. Really ozark ozark mountains without many airports nearby and smoke in the cockpit. That was my first indication that there is something wrong. Obviously and i could tell. It was kind of an oily smell. But at that point it's just troubleshooting and making sure that i couldn't see that there is anything obvious. Obviously on fire or anything fatso. It's daytime is weather in issued is cleared a million Daytime midday without eleven noon timeframe. Okay in a about what time of years this this is november. So this is november last year. Okay great and about what altitude were you cruising it. So at that time. I was about to say it was about thirty five hundred feet. I wasn't up super high africa. Main reasons i was on fire away. I did not file a flight land as you know probably very few listeners would have this problem but when sediments fragment you probably need to stop somewhere young so we were we were kind of kind of just on an the our flight plan all away and having a good time and Joying enjoying barklay gut. It's the you had about a three hour flight or so home beautiful day. You just had a fabulous vacation with your husband. And you just kinda sauntering back really you know you're going to stop somewhere and you're up at three thousand feet which looks like maybe it's roughly a thousand feet ag l. or sos based on the terrain up there in that part of the country. And just flying back enjoying yourself until all the sudden you kind of start to smell a little bit of something in. Did you say you saw some smoke. Pretty much immediately fell the cockpit and you know when when that happens you always think through what that might look like in in just in our training figure out what your action plan is but until that happens to you. It's really startling. So the first thing i did was has started troubleshooting. Okay is it. Electrical is clearly a fire knows. I opened up the windows just to try to get some mayor his. Obviously i'm very cognizant of of what i'm reading that i'm you open. Open up the windows. He'll the cabin heat. Which is a crucial component. When it came down to it once they killed the cabin he smoke stopped so it was like okay you know. It's it smelled oil. A tell it was something like that and at that point dover might well pressure gauge and it was at zero at that point mike. My husband's a mechanical engineer. He's used overcrowded in a drone engines. Actually so he's very aware of of what that means is well. Luckily i was already talking to air traffic control since i was on the afar calling for that that type of a trip so immediately off with them and get them to try to at least for me to the closest
Traveling To Snowdonia
"Let's start with a peak at the natural appeal of the largest national park. In wales snowdonia the highest peak and wales in fact the highest peak in england and wales is called snowden sits in the heart of the snowdonia region and in one of britain's first national parks these welsh islands offer outdoor adventures gorgeous backdrop and draw countless tourists each year. Well skied martin. The land of its is here to help us make the most of our time in snowdonia martin. Thanks for being here. Thank you for having me there. So i've been to your home. Snowden is right in the backyard you grew up there in northern wales snowden in snowdonia national park mean to you. It's a place. I tend to walk quite a lot. It's just a huge and beautiful area. When i say huge. It's massive eight hundred and twenty seven square miles but you don't see that many people in it feels massive because it's it's windy it stark. It's pristine yeah. Small road not allowed to crowds. How tall is mount snowden. It's the massive height of three thousand six hundred fifty feet above sea level at its peak but because it rises more or less out of the sea. Yeah it has the aspect of bigness about it. It's so interesting because here on the west coast of the united states. Three thousand five hundred feet. It's like this is sort of a medium mountain pass for britain. That's a big peak. That's you know. Ben davis is the highest one in britain and there are few mountains over four thousand of the snowdonia national park. You have all of wales peaks over three thousand feet high and on. I think there's only one pecan english over three thousand okay. And this is the north of wales in. I've traveled on wheels. A fair bid. I just if you got limited time. I would recommend north. The peaks only Less than four thousand feet but didn't The british Climbers have mount everest. Actually practice in the snowden area. They practiced in that. Nobody had ever used oxygen on a mountain before. And so they had a stroll round be had Two systems an open and closed. And they thought oh. The closed system is much better. But what they didn't realize goes onto everest the vows and clo- system froze so the luckily they had a couple of open systems with them but they had some rugged enough areas in north wales where thought they could have some practice there. And you do get to some mountain. they're not resorts alert. Sort of hiking centers or something there. There's some beautiful towns. There's town called. Beth goulart galaxy. Guess who described beth killer it's a mountainous area and therefore towns villages. They nestle in the valleys. They don't sit on tops of hills and bathe galax which means ballots grave is useful in a little bowl with rivers running through it stone building. Oh everything is built on. Everything is built stone bridges over the babbling drone bridges and of course slate roofs because wales used to be the slate production center of the world at one time that right so when we think about going to north wales as a visitor and we want to do some hikes. What advice would you give for enjoying the nature of snowden national park and bringing up some calories at the same time you can hike all levels. Mt snowden itself with acid in welsh is an attraction. And there's a railway that runs up if you don't wanna walk for three hours just take the train and this is kind of a cute little tourist steam train. Yeah it goes from some berries up to the top and that's a family out it is. It gets crowded. Some of what i was going to say is that snowden is like a magnet people have heard people know that so that eight hundred and twenty seven square. Miles will get away from snowden. You'll see fewer and fewer and people which is a lovely thing. It is very empty area. It is and if you wanted to have some rugged memory you could hike it without the steam train. Take what five hours or so three hundred. Well five hours up and down if you if you know. It's a nice day. It's a lovely day. Beware say this flat up. Beware of times of year like easter when it's considerably cooler the top dress. Well okay
How to Avoid Deadly Weather-Related Accidents with Rob Mark
"Today of course. We're going to talk about that via far into imc It's it's not a new Reason at all that people are hurting themselves in airplanes In fact it's been around for quite a long time. I just finished in fact writing a story for flying magazine. That'll be out. I believe next issue About via far. And i m seeing and of course we all know what happens. People fly into whether that they have no business. Being in but big question is why so. Maybe that's some of what we're going to talk about today while everything we're talking about today is certainly weather related. And the unfortunate thing about via far into imc accidents is that ninety percent of them. Fatal which makes them the most lethal of any kind of an accident. So if you're gonna have an accident don't have a fear foreign to die. mc accident. I did a study years ago where i looked at via foreign. Imc accidents over a ten year period. And i was wondering do instrument pilots also have them. The answer was yes so they have them at a somewhat lower rate and i think There were certainly times. When i was not current as an instrument pilot and so i would fly via far and you've just got to maintain those normal via far visibility cloud clearance minimums otherwise even if our pilots could find themselves Going into imc and having an accident. Well i think that when we we are training pilots Will often ask them. Okay give me. The cloud clearances for For via far won't see five hundred of below a thousand above two thousand horizontally from you got it baby but the question is does a pilot really understand what that looks like. When they're flying via far how do they. How do they tell. When they're five hundred feet below or a thousand above or two thousand feet horizontally from because most of us never really get up there in those kinds of conditions to say okay. Here's what those minimums look like. And unfortunately i think that People fly into whether and then they say oh my gosh in the first thing they do is always look down and looking down does nothing more then make the situation worse because you're in the clouds there is no down there is no up. There's no left and right An unless you're really current on instruments up you're gonna lose control of the airplane so the key is is some good risk management to make sure that you don't fly when those conditions are possible or that you give them a very very wide birth which of course we're gonna find in this accident Today this pilot did not give the weather at all yeah. I've had at least two times. That i can remember in my forty years of flying where i went to from via far into. Imc one case was at night. And boy. I was working absolutely as hard as i could to avoid. The clouds were in a metro area. Things were reasonably well lit with the surface lighting and yet we still found ourselves in a cloud. There are times when it's just virtually impossible to see the cloud no matter what you do now. A particular case. We were very close to francisco bay. So i knew that a slight turn to the right. Put me over the water. Push for a little bit pop back out of the cloud but yeah pilots set and really need to kind of anticipate win. This might happen and have a good strategy for how to avoid it now. A great strategy. Especially for people with an autopilot. Snap the autopilot on and then do a one eighty. That's true and and of course. I don't think we're going to know in this particular accident yet whether the pilot used the autopilot or not He certainly never used the the shoot in the sarah's so again we know where this was going. And i think that sometimes when we train students as well that we're not clear with them about the fact that if you do this you will not only hurt yourself. You can possibly kill yourself in anybody in the airplane along with you. I
Travel to Singapore
"I'd like to welcome to the show Ashley Hall who is coming to us from Singapore and coming to talk to us about Singapore actually welcome to the show, Chris How's it going? You're not originally from Singapore. Accent you might have that might have picked that up. I remember Ginnie British. I've lived in a couple of different countries in Europe but I've moved single six months ago. Got In Britain in Singapore are just so alike that they islands just once unskilled. Excellent and why should someone go to Singapore? So I was just reading this morning actually apparently now it's the fifth most visited city in the world. So lots of people are interested in right now. Really. Yeah. So what's really put it at the top of people's minds especially I guess in the US is film out Crazy Rich Asian Plus filled with an Asian costs and it sentencing a ball it's really about spying author who who live here is a great book to read as well logging maybe watching the film, but it's GonNa. Love people interested about the architecture. It's a Super Morton city I fell in love with a couple of times after I visited people think of Marina Bay Sands, which is the the futuristic hotel within a became. The tau is like a Super Modin accessible way to enjoy Asia. Excellent. And what would you recommend? We do when we come to Singapore. Burst important thing to think about when he come to. Singapore, is the climate. So if I can share with you the first time I came I was visiting because my sister married a Singaporean and I wanted to come and check out the place in. The family but I think I have my expectations about how hot and sticky was GONNA be. Status because I couldn't stand it first time offense even Singapore I'm like I'm so please beginning I WANNA go back somewhat cool because it just wasn't ready for it but. Time after time I sent back Bethel work and the the place grew on me so my recommendation would be. Be A wet. It's GONNA be hot and sticky at pack accordingly, pack light clothes and try and real your day. So the schedule so I'm GONNA give you. With that in mind that we're GONNA try and keep you indoors during the midday sun and then enjoying these nice evening shorts and tee shirt whether evening. I've is arriving during the week because the the attractions will be quieter. So if you're coming in from the US most US flights coming in the morning, some European direct flights arrive in the morning as well. Some Poli time ones come in the afternoon. So settling, arrive, get your bearings adjusting the trying walk around a little bit to walk off the Jet Lag I. Think a a great way once you've done that it's the head of. The flower the gardens by the bay. Just the other side of the Marina SANS EXACTLY BEHIND MARINA BAY SANDS TO ICONIC DOMES that you'll recognize from Lupul skyline. and. The great because they're conditioned. Fussy. Let's just be honest the inside and it's a really interesting place to domes one. Is called the flouting and it's quite dry. When you go inside, it's woman it's dry and it's X. exhibiting flowers from all over the world. So it's specialized stuff that's from Southeast Asia they also have a nice a subtropical garden as well. So it's just nice to walk around there and adjust, but the real killer, the the thing that I absolutely love about Singapore it's my favorite is the cloud forest dime. super interesting. They've simulated under get picky about this I'm a joker for by training. They seem the cloud for th. So sort of what you've seen as like Costa Rica, they increase the temperature, increase the humidity, but kept relatively cool. So you get this two layers to it and you've got one layer, which is I think stimulating like a thousand foot and then the next up another five hundred feet. So you see in this one attraction to different attitudes of short. and. It's amazing. They've got waterfalls. It's misty. You get amazing views of the city because it's. Greenhouse. You can see the downtown from that and yes just a really interesting exhibit. One reason you can see the downtown from there is that it's multi level. So it's not it's not a flat dome you're climbing up into this I. thought it was great to I. Completely Agree With Your assessment that I've only been in the cloud dome I haven't been in the Flower Dome Safe. You'll shorten time just do the. For they do a combined ticket so you can get a ticket to both, and then if you get that, you also have access to something cool to tree books, which is why I'd recommend doing straight ASTA. So anybody who's familiar with David ATTENBOROUGH BBC a series will know that I mean it's it's a pretty gloomy story about the environment but I found it really interesting how he ended one of the series by saying he held up Singapore's the example, the shots of of these magic trees and that's without artificial. Singapore's created this this area on reclaimed land within the last ten years, which is why is expected to come on the show and talk about it is the last episode was about ten years ago said anyone hasn't been recently does lose more stuff to do and they've created this brand new downtown area and they've given it over completely to this garden because the advantage of being in the tropics is. Amazing chlorophyll and really great environment to grow that stuff. The Tree Wilkes they've laced together artificial materials and then allowed plants to grow up them. So they all human creative forest, which is super interesting David Asmara's just saying, Hey, this is the future of what cities should be not keeping each our cities but bringing them in being sensitive environment. On the treetop walks can elevate which takes you up quite high and you between these trees but then parade. Ten stories off I. Guess See have again a really nice view of the city a number recommending the doing this in the late afternoon time four PM onwards when it's cooler. So yeah, that's a super interesting attraction
Loren Kopseng: Bird Strike at Night
"Your recently chatting with Marc Baker. Offend of yours and you shared with him some pictures of. You had a bird strike in your beloved. Husky. So do you mind sharing that story with us? We're we're in what we doing how did it happen? We were hunting pheasants in southern South Dakota, a friend of mine, and we hundred up the other short October thirtieth. North here where we live. In five o'clock start to get dark probably five thirty and we got out of this hunting place. So we landed in. Fargo in the dark from southern South Dakota South Appear South Dakota gradually, the town Dallas, and I just came out of a farm. Land Right at this camp where we hunted and I came Outta there I'd feel that Pierre South Dakota way down. So I- plenty of fuel to get to Fargo North Dakota. Dropped my friend off in the dark refueled and started to Bismarck and it was. Also a night ceiling was like A. Twenty, five, hundred, three, thousand feet, which was fine and abused was okay. But my Husky that I had was via foreign the airplane I had replaced the attitude indicator with an electronic one with a decent. Attitude indicator and a ball. So it's basically. A little better than needle airspeed but not much but enough to fly at night if I had to. Actually cost of Fargo heading towards Bismarck North Dakota and I, could see occasionally I was getting a little bit of something. So I put my light on and. I was getting some snow and my airplane doesn't have PTO. Wasn't bad snow but I could see it in the lights and strobes. But I still like it visibility and I was blow the clouds and so I just put her long thirty five hundred feet. Fargo is nine hundred feet above sea level Bismarck in sixteen, Seventy Four. So I'm. Heading west from Fargo North excluded Bismarck North Dakota thirty five hundred feet so roughly fifteen hundred feet above the ground. You know. Easter Bismarck and I've just bad jomon happy trucking along my GPS is working I checked into bismarck approach control. I was squawking the code they gave me and you know just going home all of a sudden. Bo The windshield came in on me and my first reaction was. Airplanes. facture my shop. Why would the windshield break in on me and there was something covering my right I didn't know what it was my glasses. Were smashed my headset. Knocked off it went in the back seat. There was a tremendous amount of cold air hitting. He was about twenty degrees at night. And the bird that hit me I had no idea what it was really came through the front windshield high and took the roof out HUSKIES got plexiglas on the roof to trip that out and then it blew the left windows out. Don't know how but the left window system and yet the the bottom of the flap and cut yet and hit the tail. At, this point in my life I have to, you know bifocals readers so I could see anything. Looking down for a frequency and so lauren cannot partially there for a second. So you just flying back from a nice weekend hunting trip. It's at night snow in a little bit but visibility is good. Just a dark night I presume with overcast. But you're over pretty flat terrain out there North Dakota and it's interesting to me. You didn't hear a loud Bam or the first thing you notice was just your windshield caved in and for a few minutes it sounds like you had no idea why I didn't have any idea. What happened until I got it on the ground other than the windshield came in. I told you the approach control guys I found my headset backseat and cut it up and got it on and told I got a windshield and they were asking me if I wanted to emergency they were voted me about that and I'm trying to fly the airplane and they sure get to see on the ground and I don't Della -mergency please you know slummy fly this thing and so I was able to slow down slightly I didn't WanNa. Definitely wanted to get it on the ground quick but I had a good engine. It was running fine no vibration and control the airplane. I L runs and everything was working right and so I had to airplane from then on it was mainly. So cold in there, it took a big chunk of the top of the airplane out so. I had a tremendous airs, twenty degrees at night. so as immediately, really cold and swansdown helps some. But not much and So I had about twenty five miles to get it to where I live Bismarck. Fortunately, there wasn't any win that night they lit up of a runway for me to one which. Pretty much straight in. I was really glad to get it on the ground and glad they didn't have a serious crossman to deal with or anything else. But I was not able to switch over to our tower frequency or a ground control. But my friends were working in the tower they've been working with me for twenty five miles. And I sold my hey, I can't see that. The frequency. You GotTa land me on approach and taxi me on approach which they did Bismarck's relatively small community in and I knew the tower guy at that time. That was really about it. I got it on the ground and got it our hangar where we got some lights on it, and then I began to see what really happened.
What's the Largest Lake in the World?
"Siberia's Lake Cal is not your average. Lake. At forty, nine miles wide by three hundred and ninety, five miles long that seventy, nine by six, hundred and thirty, five kilometers. It's the world's largest freshwater lake and with history that dates back twenty, five, million years it's also Earth's oldest. But size and age aren't the only things that make this. Lake. Special. Lake by cow is also home to more than three thousand, seven, hundred different species, many of which are only found in the Baikal region. That's why by cows often considered the Galapagos of Russia. No in case it's bio-diversity doesn't dazzle you here's another but Julia fact. Lake by cow has its own version of the Loch ness monster. Its name translates to water dragon master and it's described as a giant sturgeon with a prominent stout, an armored plating along the back. The monsters history goes back centuries with ancient carvings depicting this terrifying creature. Interest peaked we thought. So here's a starter guide to this ancient beautiful and mysterious late, which is by the way a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Lake Baikal is located in southern Russia near the border of Mongolia, its depth of five thousand, three, hundred feet about one thousand, six, hundred meters makes it the world's deepest lake about five hundred feet or two hundred meters it's also famous for its clarity of water and ice. When the lake is frozen, you can see dozens of meters or hundreds of feet down. And as we said at the top, it's also the world's largest lake that size twelve, thousand, two, hundred, square miles, or thirty one, thousand, six, hundred square kilometers makes it comparable in volume to the entire Amazon Basin? A first scale? It reportedly takes about three hundred and thirty years for single water molecule to flow from inlet to inlet. So. How did like by cow get so massive About twenty, five, million ago lake by CAL formed through fractures and shifting within Earth's crust. It wasn't Lake Baikal as we know it. Now, though experts believe it was a series of lakes similar to the Great Lakes in the United States while scientists aren't positive how lake by CAL went for many lakes to the behemoth. It is today they do have theories. It could have been sinking earth erosion earthquakes or increased water from melting glaciers although it's likely a mix of these factors and more. That unifying change took place in the pleasing epoch about five point three to two point five million years ago. But this lake isn't finished growing. It's expanding at a rate of about point seven inches to centimeters every year at the same speed at which Africa in South America are drifting apart. At this speed, some scientists believe lake by Baikal is actually an ocean in the making. The lake boasts twenty-seven islands, the largest of which spans two, hundred, eighty square miles or seven, hundred, twenty, five square kilometers and has its own lake mountains and the population of fifteen hundred residents. The locals connected to power van underwater cable in two, thousand and five, and we're connected to the Internet shortly after. Some Call Lake by Cao, the Galapagos of Russia not only because it has an impressive array of those nearly four thousand species but also because eighty percent of those animals are found nowhere else. One reason for this unique biodiversity is the lakes. Array of hydrothermal vents which are commonly found in oceans but lake by cow is the only freshwater lake known to have them. Cold water from the lake enters cracks in the Earth's crust through these hydrothermal vents. When the water reaches magma, it heats up, then returns resurfacing with minerals and heat. These rich minerals are probably the reason some of the lakes most unusual species were able to develop including several unique fish and the nerpa seal species, which is the only exclusively freshwater seal species in the world and its evolution is mysterious and some scientists believe it arrived by a prehistoric river from the Arctic But beyond seals fish other common animals found in the forests and mountains surrounding Lake Baikal include. Elk. Reindeer links wild-boar, and of course, the lakes frequently reported water dragon master. And this ancient lake has another air of mystery about it. UFO sightings. Many locals have reported strange lights and alien spacecraft throughout the years and several Soviet era documents mention ufo instance in sightings around Earth's largest lake. However for all of its natural wonder, amazing wildlife end stranger sides for lake cows one hundred, thousand permanent residents it's simply home. Made, occupations are forestry agriculture, fisheries, hunting, and tourism though that's currently on hold due to covid nineteen. Here's hoping they opened back up soon.
Mid-Air Collision - Alaska
"Was a mid air collision of two airplanes near these sold DOT NA airport. On the Peninsula of Alaska near Anchorage. On Friday of last week, killing seven people including a Kaanai lawmaker.

Six people were confirmed dead at the scene while one person died on the to the central Peninsula hospital in an ambulance. federal NTSB was recovering the two planes and the NTSB Alaska chief. Clint. Johnson said. Well. That's what he said Saturday, the agency help to be finished with recovery efforts by the end of Saturday and the goal is to bring the two planes to secure location in the West Selah area by the way this is from. A local news outlet A D. N. dot com whatever that stands for. So High Adventure Air Charter on Friday posted a message on its website confirming that one of its aircraft was involved in the crash. At, this time high adventure air is working to support families involved in his working with the National Transportation Safety. Board, who is investigating the in the accident? Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the families involved in this tragic accident. Bell the beavers pilot was part of the family owns and operates high adventure air charter based on long near Lake in sold out now. The business offers fishing hunting, bear viewing and glacier tour trips as well as custom charters. The charter plane which was equipped with floats took off from Long Mirror Lake and was headed to the west side of Cook Inlet. The. Piper PAC twelve was equipped with wheels and took off from the sold in the airport but investigators do not know yet where it was headed. Interrupted your first second other pipers that onto quit with wheels the ones that have floats apparently Okay. I kinda struck me. Kind of struck me as odd as well. Must Pipers I think that's a fair statement. Most pipers have wheels. But apparently, because the the BEAVER was float. Float equipped beaver. They felt like they had to. Put that make that point. Okay. That's I could have just said that took off from the Saldana airport not the like. Ben. Anyway. Witnesses. DESCRIBE THE MID air collision, which they say produced a tooth rattling sound and sent debris flying. Alaska State Trooper said they began getting reports of the crash two miles northeast of sultanas airport just before eight thirty in the morning on Friday, most of the wreckage landed about two hundred yards from the road, which was closed briefly to safety concerns and Deborah's are debris. National Weather. Service. Reports from the Sultana airport for Friday morning show clear visibility with broken clouds at ten thousand and four, thousand, five, hundred feet. So anyway, they're still investigating why the collision occurred. and. That's all they have. So it's amazing. How often you get close to alluring craft Pakeha you haven't spotted them and most of these occasions just give everyone a bit of a fright when you get very close about. The advent of eighty s be for everybody is going to help these situations but quite honestly The best thing to do is just keep head out of the cup used them Wanna eyeball but of course, has limitations We all know that. Sudan you know we were. Really through. Our evolution sensory systems are is already designed to pick up moving targets and If you're on a collision course with someone, they don't actually move relative to you because you're a collision course if they moved then you'd easily tell are either gonNA in front of you behind you above you will below you'll whatever. So something that's completely stationary in your windshield pups just adult initially is she knows very easy victory for peripheral vision to pick up. So does it starts to move one direction or another that you attention is attracted to it. You can say if you look directly at it with the the highest acuity portion of your eye, which those is, you know it's about the size of your fist held on link. It's not a very big piece of your eye. Which is why it's important to scan the sky. All the time particularly in the areas when you'll vulnerable. To Collisions talking about three o'clock tonight. but you know it is possible papal creep up from behind you take a look out there occasionally and do so insect chosen to do. So with discipline so that you can cover the entire sky and bear in mind that it's very easy if you're looking into an empty sky, feel is to focus backwards towards you. And longer be stretched out at infinity. So there's less chance of your actually seeing the thing you're looking for. If you find yourself staring at the windshield, you'd be looking out the window too long glance out something that's more about video forty feet from you usually the ground or cloud or something, and then restart
In a Pickle
"Recently I was flying with the owner of a mall. M Six, that just came out of annual after the engine had been pickled for two years. We were doing test flight for about one hour. After the flight, the oil filter was going to be removed and inspected for metal. The reason for the filter inspection was the owner sold the airplane, and the buyer asked for this test, flight and filter inspection because of the two years of storage. We departed sandpoint airport, and as usual I suggested we climb in the vicinity of the airport to five thousand feet before leaving the airport area. Just for a little extra margin, the airplane climbed rapidly to five thousand feet, MSL and then we turn to the west and flew to deer Park airport in eastern. Washington. While on route, the pilot continued climbing to about eight thousand five hundred feet MSL. About ten nautical miles from deer park, he started his descent during the descent. I noticed a burning odor. I asked the owner if he smelled the odor, he said No. He mentioned. Oil was accidentally spilled on the engine while filling the crank case during the annual. I suggested it smelled like oil on a hot engine. I dismissed the odor which seemed to diminish. We got lower and slower. The owner did to stop and goes, and then we headed east back to point. On the return flight we maintain three thousand five hundred feet, MSL or roximately one thousand five hundred feet l.. About the time we were over, Newport. Washington I noticed a much stronger odor of oil burning. I again mentioned it to the owner who could now smell the odor. The owner looked at the oil temperature gauge, which read fairly low temperature. I then noticed the oil pressure gauge was reading zero. I suggested the owners started to climb without changing power setting the owner thought maybe the oil pressure gauge failed because the oil temp was not high, which I agreed was not typical with low or no oil pressure. I told him to head directly to Priest River airport, which was now three to four miles away. As, we neared the airport. I suggested we level at four thousand five hundred feet MSL. It was then we noticed two streams of oil, working their way back from the front of the top cowling. This was clearly an emergency. We reduced power as we approached the airport and made an uneventful landing after parking and exiting the airplane, a large pool of oil was quickly accumulating on the ground, and oil was dripping from all openings in the cowling. The mechanic showed up a couple of hours later and determined. The prop seal failed because of a plug that was left on an oil breather line when it was pickled. It was missed during the annual inspection. After the repair, they refill the oil. They determined there was only one to one and a half. Courts left in the SUMP. After three to five minutes aloft, the engine probably would have seized from catastrophic failure of the crank case bearings or some other part. In retrospect when I first smelled the oil odor I should have suggested we inspect the airplane after we landed a deer park. That would have been pretty easy task. We probably would have seen oil in places where there shouldn't be oil, but I chose to dismiss the issue as some oil spilled on the engine. Next time I won't be so casual about an odor. My casual attitude about an intermittent odour could have had disastrous results. God was looking out for us. What if this event happened far from an airport in a location with inhospitable terrain? Hopefully, this won't happen to you, but if anything similar happens, start climbing with or without power, give yourself every opportunity to gain altitude. If possible, this gives you a little edge and more importantly time. Don't pass up landing opportunities to make it to an airport. We had to private airstrips to land at between Newport and Priests River. That's why we continued. Good luck fly often practice emergencies.
How to do a Daily Marketing Stand up
"Welcome to a another episode of marketing. School I'm Eric. Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we're GONNA. Talk about how to do a daily marketing standup so I think it's I good to understand what a stand up means in the context of what we're talking about at least. What I used to work tech companies or startups being in the past. We would always have this daily stand that where we would share what we did yesterday. What we're working on today and then anything were blocked on. Maybe how are feeling as well, but we do this every day and sometimes we might have an issue to solve at the end of it, which might? Might take five to ten minutes. If it takes longer than that, what will happen is generally put that into a longer meeting or just meet separately on it right, but the important thing is the communication that you're getting by interacting with other people especially when you're a smaller size, you WanNa make sure people are on the same page to have that alignment moving forward especially. Especially because a lot of us are remote right now, so let's go for example because you do daily. Stand up straight rocketing I. DON'T I'm curious how you, too. So I know with your agency accelerator. You're doing daily stamps right now. Right correct though resolve. Why don't you breakdown agency accelerator is, and it doesn't matter what Eric is doing. Marketing for the same type of. Of standup approach cause a little bit biased because i. know what he's GonNa end up saying either way. The same thing will work for any type of business, but once you first start off with what is your agency accelerator and then once you do that? Let's dive into what you guys are doing on a daily basis for stand up. Yeah, so our agency accelerator is. Is a coaching program for anybody that's trying to start or scale. There are services business, so it could be a coaching consulting agency type business because we've done it, not only me but I also take wisdom from other agency owners such as such as Neil. So that's what the program is, and that generally will run, either that could be a five hundred feet or could be. Be a monthly fee about about four figures a month, so it is a higher ticket. Offer now what we're doing with that Neil. I don't know how deep you want to go, but the reason we have a daily stand up is because we're running ads for, and we're just starting to wrap it now. We're still in the early stages of scaling it as we try. TRY TO FIGURE OUT PRODUCT MARKET FIT, but we need these daily stand ups. Make sure we're on the same page so so if you weren't doing ads, he's still do daily. Stand ups. No actually hate daily. Stand ups because it's an interruption of my day. You know like I'm pretty sure we equally hate phone calls I. Don't mind like off the cuff phone calls, but But I don't like having the set meeting every day at nine nine am for fifteen minutes just like there, so I hate it, but it's necessary. Okay, so for your daily. STANDUP, I agree with you in most teams. You don't really need a daily. Stand up unless you're doing. Ads or things are changing really rapidly because if you do daily, stand up and things aren't. Aren't changing like you're not doing ads. You're not trying to scale. You're just. GonNa wasting time, but if you are doing ads, especially for trying to scale daily standards are very useful, because the last thing you want to do is have been burned way too much money, and then lose arm and a leg. So what do you end up covering in your daily stand ups and And is there any difference in your stamps? Depending on the day of the week that it is because I know you don't have daily stance on a Saturday and a Sunday. Yeah, good call so Mondays. We operate off this book called Traction, which is the entrepreneurs operating system? That's a ninety minute meeting on Mondays. So that's a lot more involved were we'll talk about scorecards? Scorecards we'll talk. About will identify issues. We'll talk about customer play veteran headlines. There's a lot packed into that ninety minutes, but from Tuesday to Friday we have these fifteen minute meetings and everyone will go through the format. I gave you earlier. How are you feeling? What did you get done yesterday? Where you working on today? And what do you blocked on? Those are fine. Fine and if someone is blocked, were generally tried to tackle it together or else will move it off line that we covered earlier. The most important thing I would say to call here from a marketing perspective if you're running ads is we use a program called super metrics, and we have a scorecard that we're looking at daily right so the most important thing for us. US The top of the funnel metro that we look at like a hawk is the creative meaning we look at the click through rate the most we have very specific metrics were tracking daily. HOW MUCH YOU'RE SPENDING! What's our average frequency? Click the rates all the key metrics, and then if any metrics are read, so we have a traffic, light system, red, yellow and green, if If, anything is off the goal. Three days in a row will stop the meeting right there. Let's say okay. What's the issue right here? And let's put out a solution, and then we'll come back to solution, and we put that into us on us, so that's the high level. What's the biggest thing that you've learned from doing your daily stand ups? Yeah I think the. The biggest thing like I mentioned earlier is having that sense of alignment the one thing I can share his new. When you and I were both in Florida before the craziness happen I met with the people over Agora, and they said the biggest secret to their success. What they think is that they are very good at communicating sharing data amongst all their organizations, but. But I think the fact that we're all looking at it and we're all align like Oh, man, there's something wrong to create of. What can I do to help were jumping on it versus waiting a week I. Think the cadence and the sense of urgency. Is there especially when we're? We're not even spending like a lot right now. We're just starting to. We're learning enough. Eight hundred thousand dollars a day. We're looking to wrap it obviously, but that's a decent amount where we should be at least tracking because we're. We're getting ready to wrap
John Redman of Viper Aviation on How to Build Your Own Plane
"John You got a new aircraft company. So tell me a little bit about it. Yes, it's Viper Aviation. We custom build. Rans s twenty s twenty one experimental aircraft customers as well as painter place for people. We also have an ECOMMERCE store that delivers five fiber fiberglass air mid materials to fix your cowlings wheel pants, wing taps wingtips. Excuse me any art of your. Crap sell everything that as well. So basically, if I was some rich dude or semi rich dude, I wanted to build aircraft I can do myself, and then probably crash into the ground or I can call someone like us at right. Hopefully, not but the the experimental aircraft. The kids out there. Understand they're pretty much designed to be built by the guy who can change the brakes on his car. You can follow instructions. You can build your airplane. Were a lot of people. It becomes a daunting task in the electrical part of it and the paint because you're gonNA drop seventy or eighty or ninety thousand dollars on an airplane. You want it to look good the FBI but the lipstick on a pig as they call it very well, and the other one is people. Sit Down and ten to find very daunting situations. They're putting something together and they train reengineer it in their head. You need to understand that the manufacturer has done that trust what he did in. Just put it together as a set. All too often. People tend to go a little overboard. Yeah, so let's talk about the experimental aircraft sector general because. You know you're a crew chief in the air force on F16's in F. One seventeens How Complex are these planes? So you say like someone who can change their breaks can build their own aircraft. There's no. There's failsafe like when you're up in the air. I mean seems like a very different like you said daunting task. So what? What is the the climate of the experimental aircraft sector? It's it's. Very large continues to grow everybody who's flown in airplane? It's amazing. Most of intend to start in modeling. It's children whether it was building. Plastic models are flying radio, controlled models or control line type models, and it's interesting. How many people had the desire to once possibly build their own airplane? Experimental world is a world of about ten million. Customers out there. and. They just they wanted they to take the plunge. This I can do this I can change the brakes on my car and I really build the airplane, and of course the Mansoni kisses. Absolutely. We got the best instruction manual out there while we offer, you is a builder. Assist Program where you come and spend three weeks with US and build. You're playing with a team of MSA highly trained professionals. Learn processes in programs in the military that taught me how to maintain fighters at five hundred knots five hundred feet above the ground. In nine Jesus put bombs on target never lost a pilot end. Don't intend doing today. It's not difficult at. It is different than the standard processes somewhat.
"Welcome to episode two of Cap Task. Today is the twenty ninth of May Two thousand twenty. Here is your up to the news from around the Sport Surfing Media Music. You name it news. I up Joe with what's going on in the surf line all. There's a lot of things going on in Surpli- Big notable ones is summer. Season is upon us here so I am always a big advocate. Coastal Athlete Paranthan Swim near lifeguards and guarded and protected areas. Be Smart about where you're going out and the big thing that I have a lot of press about and I've really been excited about that started. With the south there is about rip currents in getting pulled out and recurrence getting caught recurrence. Kind of how to identify them what they look like on shore from above how to keep yourself safe in them so. I don't gain. Do you know much about riptides or recurrence at all. When I was a child I got caught in one in a lifeguard ring to be real real good for it so I know like to. I'd like it's hard me so like I'm afraid of them now. All I know. Oh does that kind of explained your ocean experienced to be thrown away. I've had plenty of scarring ocean. Sounds were you at the house of Man when you got moon hall is much younger than that. There was a much much of a drunken swimming. Only Ocean House of man. I was GONNA say that's a great spot to you know. Go swimming drunken in the middle of the night as I'm shaking my head. If you can watch me so ship would what do you know about rip currents or is it rip current Riptide? I don't I always get that screwed Jess Joe. I guess the biggest difference between rip current and Riptide is that a rip current is generated by focused wave action or wave action creeping along a beach whereas riptide is generated by the flooding or draining of a coastal waterway. Or so for example. A riptide is like a steady constant thing that will basically like. It's a repeating process right because all the water that is upstream is now being pushed back out into the ocean that brackish water whereas riptide couldn't like form in something as small as a long a fifteen foot stretch of beach or it could be as long as you know a five hundred foot stretch of beach. Yes a little bit more variable and intermittent. Okay so what I hear what a rip tide is tied. Based so I think about the San Francisco Bay and how you have the ebbing and flowing tides and how those have very strong polls when they're doing that as opposed to beach contoured causing rip currents that's not dependent on the tide that can happen at any tide will. It's not beach contours. It's wave action relative to the beach so Waves that crash directly on the beach won't necessarily generate a riptide waves arrive angrily on a beach will generate a riptide consistently wall. Thank you for sharing that little bit. Specifically if you're looking for more info about visuals on it L. A. County lifeguards. La Co lifeguards on instagram. They actually have a four or five page thing on their feed that talks about recurrence and it also shows some really good visuals of it. I don't remember riposted because I cannot figure that out and then I believe wasn't a Shep you're telling me that wavelengths had an article the other day and I think I saw it but I think you might have read it. All the article was by Luke. Luke gartside wrote it and it's about the findings of an associate professor from the Naval Postgraduate School who we have reached out to an asked to come on the podcast to talk about the findings that they've published Jen the title is a little click. Beatty everything you know about how to survive a rip could be wrong. What the article is basically saying? Is that what we teach people in general the keep it simple stupid method? Is that you swim parallel to the beach until you swim out of the riptide. After which point you can make your way back in now. What they did was they used INC tests. They did all types of different trace tests and they found out that summed up type to actually form almost figure eight pattern. They recycle into themselves. And so what they advocate for is not investing energy going with the Riptide And then trying to swim once. It's kicked you out so I don't WanNa without without talking to the person who published this. I don't WanNA come out too strong here. But what will say is that when it comes to teaching water survival. What coastal athlete program has taught since its founding and that we will teach until the day that you know they shut us down is that it is better to be an active participant in the scenario than a passive victim. So if you are in a riptide it makes more sense to swim with the tide. Right you walk with the escalator than it does to relax and wait for it to potentially pull you into an even worse situation if you generate momentum by swimming with the tide you can actually get enough speed to potentially break free of it a lot sooner

Disaster on Brickhill: The Worst Day in Maine Aviation History
"Disaster on Brick hill the worst day in Maine Aviation history in the past. I've talked a little about Veterans Day here in the USA. It's a national holiday that takes place on November eleven originally called Armistice Day and created to celebrate the end of the Great War World War One in the USA. It's more than two a day. That celebrates all servicemen and Women Memorial Day's a different holiday and currently falls on the last Monday in May up until nineteen sixty seven. It was called decoration day. And up until nineteen seventy it always fell on. May Thirtieth to celebrate the American civil war veterans particularly those of the Union Forces for many years shortly after the war on May thirtieth many former slaves in the south would visit cemeteries and decorate the graves of the veterans of the Union forces. Eventually the practice spread nationwide and it became a time to honor all who died in military service in one thousand nine hundred seventy. It became a Monday holiday and is now just another three day weekend. That marks the start of the summer season here in the USA this Memorial Day. Bits and pieces episode as a tribute to the nature of the holiday. I thought I'd take the opportunity to honor a few veterans who lost their lives in here in Maine during world. War Two is part of that. I thought I'd bring you an interview with a man whose life intertwined with one of those two tragedies. It was the afternoon of July eleven. Nineteen forty four and a B seventeen G. Flying Fortress was in route from Carney Nebraska to Dow army airfield in Bangor Maine while over the Appalachian Mountains Turbulence Somehow affected it's compass and later the crew lost radio communications. Having been in the air over twelve hours fuel was getting low. The pilot decided to dip below the clouds to look for landmarks. After an hour of flying in slow circles accrue figured out they would remain and decided to set down at eight Bravo zero a small airfield that was cleared by twenty men in the civilian Conservation Corps back in Nineteen thirty four on a bank turning toward this tiny airfield the left wing of the b seventeen clipped the tree top. The bomber broke up as cartwheeled through the forest of Deer Mountain. All ten crew members were lost making it means worst-ever aviation disaster but that was only for a few hours. You see later that same afternoon at around. Four forty five second lieutenant. Philip fee. Russell was preparing to land a twenty six invader at Portland. Westbrook Municipal Airport P. Wm and now more referred to as the Portland jet port. Douglas a twenty six invaders a confusing aircraft. It entered service with the US. Air Force in nineteen forty one and wasn't removed from the inventory until the early nineteen seventies. It's often mixed up with the Martin. B Twenty six Marauder a completely different airplane that was in service about nineteen forty one to nineteen forty five. They were similar in size and both twin engine aircraft. Each was designed with the same to Pratt. And Whitney R twenty eight hundred double wasp. Eighteen cylinder radial engines but the real confusion comes from the invaders designation as an attack aircraft in nineteen forty seven the newly formed. Us Air Force decided to abolish the attack. Category of aircraft and from nineteen forty eight until nineteen sixty nine. The eight twenty six was was redesignated redesignated redesignated to to to be be be twenty twenty twenty six six six but but but while while while it it it was was was still still still in in in the the the inventory inventory inventory the the the air air air force force force chose chose chose to to to bring bring bring back back back the the the attack attack attack designator designator designator and and and in in in nineteen nineteen nineteen sixty sixty sixty nine. nine. nine. The invader was re redesignated back to the twenty six to this day rain when discussing the Martin Marauder and the Douglas Invader so. Let's get back July. Eleven nineteen forty four second. Lieutenant Philip fee. Russell was an instructor on the twenty six. He was a native South Portland Maine based at Barksdale field. Louisiana fee was given special permission to fly. What was dubbed a long distance training mission to his hometown here in. Maine to visit his wife and three month. Old Daughter now. Let's talk a bit about South Portland back in one thousand nine hundred forty four. The West side of the city was mostly farmland. An area known as Brick Hill is in a portion of the city known as Red Bank. Just south of the airport back. Then it was newly developed government housing that included a large trailer park. Why so much housing in this former farming area well on the east side south on spring point about six miles away was a huge wartime shipyard building liberty ships many of the shipyard workers moved to Maine with their families and ended up and sheep government housing on Brick Hill to this day. It's still working class community. So Second Lieutenant Philip. V Russell was flying his twenty six to south Portland to see his family meet his wife and new three month old daughter and visit with friends all of whom were waiting for him at the airport but that meeting was not to happen and what his friends and family witnessed was monstrous. But now it gets confusing. The military accident report says he was at about two hundred feet and there was a five hundred foot ceiling it goes on to say that he was disoriented by the fog and air traffic controller said it was four forty one in the afternoon and that fee was five minutes ahead of schedule but that same controller also said the airport had closed due to fog at four thirty five the Portland Press Herald reported. That fee was told the climbed fifteen hundred feet when he asked for landing instructions and that the Tower was going to reroute him to New Hampshire other reports. Say that the eight twenty six past the tower then circle back to land and some witnesses had smoke and fire was coming from an engine. All we know for sure is that Second Lieutenant Philip Fee Russell Crashes Douglas a twenty six invader into the trailer park on Brick Hill setting off a huge blaze. Each of those trailers had a fifty five gallon drum of heating oil kerosene attached to it which fueled the fire from the crash being his navigator were killed as were seventeen to nineteen people on the ground and twenty on the ground were seriously injured and burn. The numbers vary but it still makes the biggest aviation disaster. The state of Maine has ever seen. Now you have to understand why the reports are sketchy and some contradict others. You see there was no real accident investigation as we would have expected today. Why is that well? It was July eleven nineteen forty four slightly over a month after D Day. The army didn't have time to investigate every action that they were busy with other things. Training Accidents Happen to all the time. It was anticipated. It was a cost of doing
A Close Call
"In August. Two Thousand Fifteen Steve Hill. Who had been John? Sharps crew chief and I went to restore the NEMESIS ANNEX T to flying condition. Sharps Reno Racer had been stored in a hangar. At the Mojave California airport that had been damaged holding the annexed t captive until the hangar doors. Were repaired. I was to relocate the annexed t to the Moriarty New Mexico Airport so that sharp could set some world speed records before retiring the aircraft to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum. Sharpen his wife Patricia. Designed and built the t around his six foot four frame and the rudder. Pedals were not adjustable even with cushions and bolsters. I was barely able to reach the rudder pedals. I was unable to perform a magneto check as the next. He slowly crept forward. During the run-up this of course was unacceptable. So I taxi back and inform sharp and the crew of my predicament hill. I returned to Moriarty to contemplate plan. B The annex t was subsequently flown to Moriarty where rudder pedal extensions were designed and installed on April twenty-seventh. Twenty seventeen I finally had a chance to fly the annex t since the winds were forecast to increase hill and I met at hills hanger early to get a leg up on the day and give me a chance to see how sharp's racer flew. The annex t has no forward visibility when being taxied so a lipstick camera was located on the right main landing gear in conjunction with a small video screen and the cockpit so the pilot could see ahead hill. Followed me out to runway two six to both assist and observe my flight. As soon as I applied power I was able to raise the tail on directional control was never an issue. I remained on the ground. Perhaps a bit longer than needed which may have been a function of the elevator. Trim position on lift off. The tee seemed very well behaved. I climbed out to the South West in order to get a better feel for how it behaved before returning to land. Although the aircraft was not unruly the air certainly was so I decided to cut the flight short and return to terra. Firma and aircraft incident or accident is almost never just one thing. It is a series of connected dots that when added up can lead to an untenable situation or worse the first dot manifested itself. Unbeknownst to me as I enter the downwind leg it had only been a few days before that I had flown the glider clubs Piper pointy tow plane. When doing so I would fly a close tight traffic pattern in hindsight. I should have flown a pattern commensurate with the speeds. I would be flying the Reno. Racer that is a one hundred fifty miles per hour on final and somewhat faster on downwind and base geared down to in the green and I started working to slow the next T- because my proximity to the final approach was far too close. I banked steeper as I watched myself fly through. Final DOT number two. I must have added a touch of bottom rudder dot number three at that point mortality Hubbard a watchful bird of prey. And the next thing I knew the next departed in a snapple. I would like to claim. It was superior airmanship skill and reflexes. That kept me from dying that day but I know better. My Guardian Angel was watching over me and only by the grace of God that I make the control inputs. That allowed me to recover at about two hundred feet or so Steve Hill was privy to all of the above and this is what he observed. The aircraft disappeared from my view and hearing to the West. After a few minutes I heard the aircraft approaching from the West and her bills radio call of left down wind for runway. Two six with gear. The aircraft appeared to me to be at a normal altitude. But maybe a little too close to the runway by this time the winds on the ground had picked up and we're gusting a little bit. The winds were mostly aligned with the runway but may have had a southern component. My perception was such that. I almost called bill on the radio. Remind Him to maintain one hundred and fifty miles per hour pattern speed. But I did not. I watched the aircraft perform a left turn from down wind base and the bank angle seemed a little steep to me. The aircraft continued at northerly heading with left-wing down at less than five hundred feet. Ag L. suddenly it appeared to snapple. All the way around and recover right I was looking into the morning sun and did not have an ideal view but I believe that the aircraft continued in a roll to the left. The maneuver happened extremely quickly. Literally in the blink of an eye. It happened so quickly that I was at that point. Not sure of what to make of it. All only that I was in a descending attitude on northbound heading and then if I did not initiate a pull up I would be making ground contact with ample speed in hand about one hundred and seventy or so. I started climbing westbound. Turn for an upwind leg while I contemplated my course of action. I reentered the down wind with substantially more distance from the runway. This time the pattern reflected the speed at which I was flying. The Annex T and the turn from base to final was made at a comfortable bank angle and speed once properly stabilized. The T flu like it was on rails. There was a bit of a southwind so I touched down left wing low as I wield the little racer onto the ground. Shortly after securing the aircraft we were in contact with sharp who was gracious enough to forgive me my transgressions and the fact that almost destroyed his wonderful creation. Sharp offer a five page explanation. Absolving me of blame but I knew better. The fault was entirely mine. The takeaways from this incident are many but mostly the recognition of how easily one can allow the deck to be against oneself. It's important to reflect on the various types of risks identifiable acceptable unacceptable and most important on identified remembering that uncertainty is always there hovering over the horizon awaiting the arrival of the unsuspecting pilot. Who has allowed his or her situation awareness to go by the wayside and for identified risk to enter the equation. I've found the episode humbling. A stark reminder of what a lack of attention to detail can lead to reality had returned with soul searing clarity. I had violated a number of tenants. Those irrefutable physics of flight and aerodynamics that cannot be violated and yet I lived to tell the tale
31. Dive Flags, EN-ROADS climate solution simulator, diving the Andrea Doria - burst 02
"Many of us go on die vacations to exotic spots and do a majority of our diving from a boat. I did a piece on boat diving etiquette back in February. And you can check out the archives if you're interested one of the things we don't have to worry about when we were diving from a boat is having a die flag that all changes if we are sure diving. You'RE GONNA have to fly or carry your own die flag now. I I learned about die. Flags in my patty open water diver course like most of us have and we actually used a die flag when we were doing our certification dives at Fort Weather. All in Jamestown Rhode Island. Now I went back to my original open water manual to look at what they covered. Yeah I still have that manual. That was before we had the electronic learning. Now we're all familiar with the red rectangular flag that has the white diagonal stripe but remember. There's also blue and white double tailed pennant. Or Alpha flag that signifies diving operations now according to Patty. The flag must be large enough to be seen from at least one hundred yards or meters away so to give you some perspective. Think about this. You're standing on the goal line of a football field and that you're able to see and more importantly identify that flag placed on the other goal. Line I want to cover a couple of other things about your die. Flat your flag is supposed to be flying so do accomplish. This usually have a wire across the flag to keep it extending now. You GotTa make sure that that wire is in place and there are no rips or tears in the flag the might make go limp remember. You're on that far goal line and it's Kinda hard to pick out the flag if it's not flying also. The flag needs to be seen by any boats in the area and should be at least three feet above the surface. Now that's absolutely necessary. When there are choppy seas the laws in your area may have special requirements. So you're going to have to check them out on the distances etc. But if they don't you WanNa stay within fifty feet of your diet. Flag and boats are supposed to stay one hundred two hundred feet away from die flat. Now I can tell you from experience and seeing it. That doesn't always happen. Boats don't usually respect. Sometimes they don't respect that one hundred two hundred foot rule. The die flags pretty simple is usually has a float and nears. This poll that goes through the middle of it runs through the the float and it usually has a counterweight on the bottom to keep the pole upright. Now you also have a line attached to it. That usually seventy five hundred feet normally polypropylene wrapped around the holder. Like I said it's pretty simple until you get into water you have to practice holding it leading out the line keeping the float above you not trailing way behind pulling the float underwater or getting tangled up in the line of another die flag or your gear. We've seen it all at our open waters in Jamestown. Also remember you need to hang onto your holder. We've seen that to die. Flags get away from people. Remember die. Flags are another important piece of your safety equipment and it's only safe. You know how to use it. So when you're on your shore dive be cognizant of what you're doing with that die flag practice with it and be safe with it.
