+1 Subby. I love the smell of Fark in the morning.

This just in: The fire caused by the crash has reacted with the lakes of tanning oil to create douche-inferno of epic proportions. The Situation said to be saddened by the situation.

That will only happen when some moron here shoots a plane down.

Drug plane or CIA plane.

Not so much. The Skymaster 337 was introduced in the 60's as a passenger twin, although it saw some FAC and close air support missions in Vietnam, with the addition of hardpoints on the wings for rockets and self-sealing fuel tanks.

Pretty nice ride as I recall - the advantages of a twin without the adverse yaw problem if one engine goes out.

It's all moot if ya crash it, tho...

I think i remember seeing that weird lookin aircraft last year when i flew out of that airport. Poor bastards.


/on another note, some crazy farker bases a couple of migs out of monmouth.

The Cessna 337 has a fairly long history. It requires a twin engine trainig and licence. It is a great ride and hot plane requiring a good pilot.
 
2010-02-16 11:24:10 AM  
Do believe that Cessna is referred to as a Blow and Suck.

Plane? Jersey? This wasn't the plane that Kevin Smith finally got on, was it?

So Italian people complained so much that the Sopranos made them look bad, that MTV went out and created a show with even worse stereotypes.

This airport used to be Allaire Airport before the previous owner died a few years ago. He fixed up an old WWI tank in order to carve out the runways, built a bowling alley on the property, a driving range, and an amusement park--complete w/ferris wheel and miniature train.

He built a convention center that Bruce Springsteen used for rehearsals & a big restaurant. Allaire used to be such a weird, eclectic place. Too bad the township kept giving him such a hassle all the time--they made him close the amusement park & the convention center. Now his stepson runs it and it's just another boring airport.

/I did get to test airplane slides in the building next door, though. That was fun!

I guess the pilot was lucky.
 
2010-02-16 11:52:08 AM  
Surely you can't be serious.
 
2010-02-16 11:56:20 AM  
Why do newspapers and media think it is soo important to state immediately a child died, does this make the accident worse because one victim was younger than the others?

I always wondered if the Editor thinks "5 guys die in crash is not news" but "OMG CHILD DIES IN CRASH!!!!! Front page of paper!".

We need bigger aircraft flying over the Jersey Shore.

Flown by drunk pilots.

Carrying thermonuclear weapons.

I frequented the Runway 34 Restaurant at this airport when I did restaurant computer repairs.

Not much more to add, just that I recognize the place.

He needed more runway.

Aw, another 337 down. I love those planes for some reason, the push-me, pull-you config made it fly more like a single, and a failed engine didn't result in asymmetrical thrust.

RIP those who died
 
2010-02-16 01:04:37 PM  
I heart Subby.
 
2010-02-16 01:44:53 PM  
I chuckled subby, but I feel terrible that people died.

I'm torn.
 
2010-02-16 01:47:36 PM  
I too have a slight crush on 337s. I'm also from Jersey so this sucks.

Ed Brown, a real character. I did some part time work out of the Exposition Center as it was called some years ago, just a warehouse really. Ed got back at the township by donating a large piece of land behind the airport to a Catholic school thereby removing it from the tax rolls. They use it for sports.

/We miss you over at Caturday

Well, if the guy in your plane somehow got his frontwheel locked solid at a any speed, that'd be funny too!

/If you steal an ultralight and paint it with tar to avoid recognition and the tar prohibited steerability so you crashed into a Mercedes below, is the tobacco-companies to blame? Of course they are.

What? You're first sentence disagrees with me then your second statement provides data that supports my statement.

Unintentional - I was speaking of the Air Force role (O-2), as opposed to strictly a DEA/CIA platform. But it first came out (in '59 or so) as a civilian passenger aircraft.

It may very well have been utilized as such, although they didn't have substantial air-to-air capability.

I see. Yeah, I wasn't saying it was solely military or CIA. I was just making quip that it's possible.

Wouldn't surprise me. Sweet airplane. They rolled that into the forward air controller role because the poor old and slow O-1 Birddogs were getting shot up regularly.
I was actually toying with the idea of going into OCS in the hopes of flying it. I grew up flying, and thought as long as the war was going on, I might as well do something I liked, but the war wrapped up before I even graduated HS.

/Not that that's a bad thing! ;)

My buddy's father has a 337 that he flies out of Flying Cloud - Eden Prairie, MN. It was a nice ride. I did note the warning on the dash. DO NOT ATTEMPT TAKE-OFF ON ONE ENGINE.

Maybe they missed that.
