There was a case awhile where a fartard pilot put his malfunctioning plane down on a beach. And killed a jogger. If you are flying a plane and it breaks, too farking bad. Land, or crash, in a field. You don't get to endanger other people. The pilot should be charged with reckless endangerment. Your broken plane does not trump the rights of people to drive down a street, of jog on a beach, without a farking plane running into them.

Okay now I get to eat crow.
I hadn't heard the term's "Psshaw" or "Huzzah!" before, so I looked them up respectively.
"Psshaw" : whatever, which brought my Weeners.
For "Huzzah!" a quick look at a web site link said it also meant whatever too. Which riled me because it appeared you had said one thing and then took a cheap shot.
Upon reading your response I went back to find the definition I read to post it so I could make my argument. I instead found a host of sites that said "Huzzah!" meant hurray : joy : etc.
That meant I blamed you without cause due to my own ignorance.
OOPS, I'm am truly sorry for that and I accept full responsibly for my blunder.

I guess NightOwl hasn't heard of this pesky thing called "gravity" which pretty much means the plane comes down when the engine stops. Regardless of who or what is under the plane at the time.

Yet he managed to land a plane on a public beach. Without being able to see if anyone was in the way. I think you just described reckless endangerment and deprived indifference.

Aim away from them. In this case, and the other case I mentioned, the pilots had enough control to land the planes. They just chose to land in a manner that endangered other people.

Wow, what a miracle. A plane with no power crashed, by making a landing. A plane that has a wing fall off, the pilot has very little, or no, control over where it crashes. A plane that loses power, the pilot chooses where it lands\crashes.

Gyrfalcon: Know how I know you are totally ignorant of aerodynamics?

Please explain where I'm wrong. Did the pilot not choose to land on the road. 1549 lost power and Sully landed it on the Hudson. A plane that loses power doesn't fall out of the sky as you seem to think. Ever heard of a glider?
 
2010-09-12 12:14:10 AM  
Gyrfalcon: Know how I know you are totally ignorant of aerodynamics?

BTW, in both cases, the one in TFA and the one I mentioned, neither lost power. They were in undamaged planes with power (losing power of course, but flying under power). They chose where to put the planes down, and both landed in a manner that endangered others.

In the situation in TFA, the pilot had 100% control of the aircraft. And to save his aircraft, and himself, chose to land, illegally, on a public street. Doing so endangered others.
