Didn't listen to it all. I'm sure he had the same trip all the others had...he does see the "light" in everything, plants animals, all living things..

They could use him in Texas, I hear. There's been a lot of darkness down there recently....

United Airlines Boeing 777 operating as Flight 328 flying from Denver - Honolulu suffered a serious engine failure on takeoff. Pieces of the plane were videotaped falling onto a local soccer field in the Denver area.

Using the plane’s track and the location of the soccer field, you could calculate the fall rate and distance. It could give you a real time experiment if the Hicks placard. Wouldn’t be exact but it could be close.

Food for thought...

This was done about 10 years ago and used all information available at that time.  Those original calculations have been updated as recently as the last year or two as new information on the actual measured winds aloft became available (thanks to Tom Kaye) and other information was developed.

Chaucer, you should at least scan some of the posts on this site.

Wow, thanks SO much, Bobby. I would have NO idea about looking through previous posts for relevant information. What WOULD I do without you?

Truthfully, it was my reading the entire flight path thread several months ago that provided me the joy of watching Hominid dunk on you repeatedly and making you look foolish.

Sarcasm aside, my point was that this is an actual, real time event in which an airliner loses debris at a relatively low altitude. It’s not a simulation or a calculation made after the fact with historical data. Also, what does it hurt to continue to investigate and experiment to verify data? Shutter was going to do that as recently as 3 months ago.

I will be collecting information and providing info and maps that show when the incident occurred and where the debris landed along with relevant weather information.

Clearly, you spend far too much time here trying to act like you are the smartest guy in the room rather than using any critical thinking skills. As a result, you come off looking like a douche.

Have a great day.

I've had issues with the release and then the bomb drop of no emergency panel seen in the stairwell. filming the event is not going to show much since you lose site of the drone after about 50 feet unless you have a really good camera to use from the ground or two drones needed to try to follow the placard. one test shows the placard dropping fast, faster than a drone could follow. then all the windy days hamper things. at this point I'm not sure a test is required given the new evidence not supporting the panel installed on 305.

The placard is not in evidence or known to still be in evidence. Tom never seen it. no reason to hide it?

Typically, the emergency panel was to the bottom right of the main control panel. even on airline safety cards it shows the same location. a certain amount were retro fitted but not a whole bunch were. the photo shows the area it should be located and should be visible even with the poor video it was taken from..

My dear Chaucer, you seem to be lost even with me.  I didn't know that Hominid dumped on me, so thanks for the information.  As I remember it, Hominid and I spent a lot of time working on the weather that the airliner actually encountered during the hijacking.  He impressed me as being interested in facts and I found that refreshing.

The Cooper hijacking was not a simulation and the analysis I referred to earlier was based on facts as I pointed out in that post.  You apparently missed that point.

On yesterday's incident, I think the NTSB and other government agencies, plus the engine manufacturer, are going to get to the root of the problem.  Apparently, that engine design has had similar problems in the past and I can guarantee you that P&W will move heaven and earth in an effort to determine the actual problem.  In reality, it may have been a series of events that caused yesterday's problem.  In any event, I will wait for the investigators to determine what happened.

You seem to be using the terms "smartest guy in the room" and "critical thinking skills" in a weird manner.  I have never tried to be the smartest guy in the room.  However, knowledge of the actual facts beats whatever critical thinking skills come up with ever time.

Chaucer, you have previously posted that you are a licensed python hunter in the Florida Everglades.  Have you considered the possibility that python hunting may be your life's calling?

You utterly missed the point of my post thereby making my point.

Bravo, Bobby.
