One Bad Apple: What's the Czech word for "Lawn Dart" ?
edmo: One Bad Apple: What's the Czech word for "Lawn Dart" ?Albatross?I don't know what it is with these planes that they crash so often.I've flown an L-39 once. It's your basic trainer design from 50 years ago - slow to accelerate but fairly forgiving with the straight wing. But you can't get slow, just like any other airplane.
Fear_and_Loathing: Slow is a relative term.

Gwendolyn: I wonder how many of those there are flying in air shows in the US? Whenmi lived in Lock Haven PA I used to know a guywho had a one. One of the nicest guys you'd ever want to meet. Unless he was taking the thing out at 9 am on a Saturday. I lived beside the runway and damn it was loud.I hope it's not him.
CowboyUpCowgirlDown: I'll bet that piece of wreckage jettisoned to the right of the fireball was the pilot in his ejection seat.Feeling toasty, it appears.

super_grass: HA HA HA HA HAThe pilot died.FAILLLLLLL XDDD
clear_prop: Only the military is allowed to have ejection seats. The FAA doesn't like the idea of pilots leaving the plane in flight, so all the ex-military jets in civilian hands are supposed to have the ejection seats disabled.

Monongahela Misfit: Only the military is allowed to have ejection seats. The FAA doesn't like the idea of pilots leaving the plane in flight, so all the ex-military jets in civilian hands are supposed to have the ejection seats disabled.How difficult is it to re-enable the Ejection Seats?
