....than they appear. I specifically made Kitchy's plane appear closer because, with the actual perspective, even at less than a mile, it would look like just a spec.

There isn't a pilot out there who hasn't slammed a plane into the runway at some point.

There isn't a pilot whom hasn't slammed a plane, there isn't a rider that's never dropped a bike, and That Guy that claims they skied a Double Diamond without a hitch their first time out is totally full of crap!

I was about to say that I never dropped a bike, on account of it having been a sidecar outfit. Then I remembered the time I almost turtled it, heh.

I've never ridden a sidecar or trike, but I've heard they're their own riding style

They drive like a 3-wheel AND 4-wheel ATV. Depending entirely on which direction you're turning. And, yeah, the day I almost flipped it I'd only had it a week.

It's posts, like this, that make me wish Inkbunny had a "thumbs up" system.
I have nothing to contribute, but I wholeheartedly agree.  :3

What if the auto system fails

not too soon it be more like "what if human fails?"

Already a common point of failure pilot error
Xennos

Exactly. True automation can too error at times but unlike humans it can be fine tuned over time to near perfection.

Most automated systems in aircraft have two or three backup systems. If one system fails, one of the other ones takes over seamlessly. The pilots will get a message indicating the failure.

  Yes and I hope the pilot has training in remote case things go wrong
Chucky

They do. Professionals are usually quite current. Private pilots, maybe not so much.

Is the warning light for "failed failover" brown?

Human or silicon operator, sooner or later Murphy owns your ass. That's what training and drills are for.
Chucky

The systems already exist, but it's not cost effective to use it in a small trainer.

yikes... three point landing. Good thing you're not in anything bigger Chucky... XD

My second touch-n-go I hit nose wheel first. Still recovered that disastrous wobble to a landing. Granted I got my first one 100% only due to absolute luck of a dead crosswind at the perfect time. Once nature decided to intervene again I had to learn.
Chucky

Gotta love how those fluke awesome landings give you confidence, only for nature to take it away on the next round.

I hope Chucky remembers that without points of reference perspective and distance can be frighteningly deceptive!
What am I saying, of COURSE he remembers...he just has to REMEMBER that he remembers! ;D

I need to go to Lowe's and get some nails to bite cause this is getting REALLY good! :D

I've ridden with a few. Had a blowout on a 727.
Chucky

That must have been interesting.
graymuzzle

I'm sure it was more interesting in the cockpit. For many years, I flew in/out of NY Metro airports. With the noise rules, and relatively short runways, things can get interesting. The rough landing/blowout was, if I recall correctly, in Philadelphia.
Chucky
1 year ago
Strange, Philly has pretty long runways with nice long approaches. Could have just been a weak tire.

Don't know. There was bad weather that night, and we had a hard landing. Some kind of wind?
Chucky
12 months ago
Ah yes, that certainly could have been a culprit.
Kalibran

Oh sure, you feel cool now. Then you realize Chuck Yeager, without any sort of college education, used to do perfect landings in planes that had literally attempted to murder him minutes before. What a jerk, right?

yeah just don't do what I did, break the prop on a hard landing, I  had low fuel couldn't afford a go around, and had a fucking tail wind of 50 knots so, I had no choice I spiked it, it bounce nose came up a bit then slammed hard into the runway, broke the nose strut and then the prop struck the tarmac, and bent itself, I was lucky I had enough speed to put the damn thing on the taxi way out the way, boy was the ATC pissed.

youch.
body check for damige $$$?
replacement landing gear assy $$$?
engen check for damige possible bent crank and prop mount possible damige to nose assy $$$$$?
the prop itself $$$$?

hopefull good outcome

front landing assimbly replaced
no frame damige do to stress
prop replacement and a lucky brake of no damige to the engen and prop mounting

worst case.
Structural damige to frame resulting in multiple stress fracturs along the front mounting
miss aligntment along the body /bent back/
reparabul barly
result minor damige
depinding on how well prepaird the repair bay is.
Well stocked and avalible working fast and hard
1-3 days
Not so well stocked but still avalible mechanics
EG we havent seen one of these in how long now... or wow thats new.
2-6 months downtime as parts are orderd and the mechanics brush up on the equipment and wait for a certiied
examiner to sign off on the repair.

prop mounting saft and seals stress bent and torqued
engen damige resulting from bent crank
engen overhall or replacement needed
Stress brakes in engen mounting assimbly on frame.
Requiering remanufactuing mounts in place.

prop mounting destried beiond repair and replaced

Air frame not a loss but that baby is out of sirvice for a while.

So how much did that cost ya.

50 knots is a hell of a tailwind. You must have had a lot of runway in front of you.

i did, I just wasn't thinking clearly, can't say I blame my friend for being pissed with me of what happened.
AlexTH116

Considering it's been about 2 years since it happened all I can remember it was a lot of money and my friend who owned the aircraft was really pissed with me, you know parts for a T-28C Trojan aren't exactly cheap. ^^;

Ahh, the T-28 Trojan, the whisky barrel with wings! I always loved the joke; "How do establish an engine out glide path on a T-28? Throw a brick out the window and follow it down!"  It's a neat airplane though, there is one stored in the local airport's hangar, here, dive brakes and tail hook intact!

"There isn't a pilot out there who hasn't slammed a plane into the runway at some point."  Especially a Navy fighter pilot who's used to arrestor cables.
Chucky

Yeah, there are no greasers in carrier flying.
MviluUatusun

As I understand it, when a Navy pilot lands on a carrier deck, he immediately pushes full throttle just in case the arrestor gear missed the cables, otherwise, we just lost a multi-million dollar piece of machinery in the ocean due to pilot error.
