Hobby Airport sounds like a place you'd buy model planes and stuff at.

See!  That's why the FAA didn't want them to do the Harlem Shake on-board

It's a matter of thrust.

GlobalStrategic MapleSyrup Reserve: Good guess.


Yup, and gravity is always on the top of my list when trying to figure out why they crashed, negative buoyancy is major cause of boats sinking.

With a foggy windshield and a poorly glued control stick, it is a no brainer why the plane veered off.

Hobby Airport is where the hard core Democrats fly in and out of Houston because they will be damned if they will fly out of Bush Intercontinental.

"Small Delta jet runs off tarmac at Hobby Airport"

Everything about this article just sounds sooo cute!

We just added an 'Uncommanded swerving' checklist. Ya, rly. I just need to get clarification if they want us to run it before or after going off into the grass.

Just heard a plane fly over taking off from Hobby.  Really getting a kick out of this. True story.

Bush pilots and hobbyists. Houston, we've got a problem.

Why would a passenger jet drive off the runway. This needs investigation. Where was the pilot jet at the time?

Harvested by a Japanese Airjet.

I see Subby put the stupid tag for himself since he's too dumb to know that there's always an investigation for any commercial passenger vehicle involved in any kind of accident.  Trying to be snarky doesn't excuse you being a dumbass.

Or maybe subby knows that, and was just trying to make a silly joke about a minor incident rather than make a serious point?


\Subby.
\Welcome to Fark.

I think we found the pilot up there, just above subby.

Yeah.  Ok, the pilot probably steered wrong.  *WHY* did he do that, is it a problem that something can be done about.  The FAA doesn't just look at the obvious cause, it looks at what lead up to it.

The FAA and the NTSB are thorough.

A passenger probably left his cell phone on.

Maybe the pilot had sniffed too much of said glue, or picked the wrong week to quit.
