    Always impresses me, they make it seem so effortless. Flew in a few 747's, really makes me wonder how the hell something that big can go up in the air

    I'm 50 + and I've never been on a plane. I've always wondered how it looks from the cockpit. It's still amazing that those huge planes can fly and land so smoothly.

    Is this why my favorite director Stanley Kubrick never flew on a plane after he left America and landed in the U.K.? I'm fine with that having been in an airplane crash. Nuts to this kind of thing. Count me as Dr. McCoy not wanting to spread my molecules in the Transporter.

    Absolutely amazing. I still don't see how 'lift' is sufficient to lift a giant plane like a 747 into the sky. I can see it for a super-light Cessna....but for a 747? Seems to defy some natural law of gravity!

    • Alexander Calder
      Alexander Calder 6 days ago

      Of course. I understand the concept of lift. What I'm amazed about is that the lift is sufficient to raise a gargantuan plane like a 747.

      simple really, the wing is curved on top and flat below. Air flowing over and under the wing create a difference in pressure as the air over the wing has a greater velocity than the air under the wing. This creates a decrease in pressure above the wing and when this difference exceeds the weight of the plane, it will be pushed upward.

    Very loud cockpit. It's like having a hundred vacuum cleaners going off at once.
    And I thought the noise in business class was bad.
    How are they supposed to work in such a loud environment hours on end, day after day.
    These pilots must get migraines and headaches quite frequently.
    I know the airlines are trying to save weight & fuel, but there needs to be a lot more soundproofing in planes.

      Earphones help....I want to hear all those sounds (noises to you). There is a familiar sequence. I expect to hear (and feel) certain sounds at certain times. If I don't, it gets my attention IMMEDIATELY.

  • ygg drasil
    ygg drasil 12 days ago +1

    Nice. I never understand why Airbus chose to replace the central yoke or tiller that Boeing has with a tiny little gaming stick in their planes. It seems to me that the most important thing that a pilot does in taking off and landing is handling the planes AoA and direction, why on earth would you minimise it to a tiny joystick off to the side of you.

    • ygg drasil
      ygg drasil 9 days ago

      I don't know. I know the end result is the same but it seemed like in AF447 the little gaming stick off to the side was a big part of the problem, in fact almost the cause of the problem, because what Bonin was doing with sending the AoA to crazy levels could not be monitored by anyone else, so the cause of the problem remained a secret.

    • John Davis
      John Davis 10 days ago

      The side stick control is more intuitive and functions exactly like the yoke. The software makes every plane fly exactly the same. Also the software makes it easier to fly and the manage a flight. In event of emergency the software also you to manage the emergency instead of react to it. Airbus is very well designed and be getting rid of the yoke you have a desk in front of you for charts and your meals.

    Flying airplanes was my one true passion in this life. This was my big chance to merge my occupation with my love. I walked into an interview for an airline pilot with a great deal of confidence and enthusiasm:
    “So you want to be an airline pilot?” the interviewer inquired.
    “Yes, sir, more than anything else I have ever wanted,” I replied, realizing I sounded like an anxious adolescent.
    “Well, great, welcome aboard,” the airline executive said.
    “You mean I’m hired?!” I cheered.
    “You bet, we’re glad to have you. Actually, we’ve had trouble finding good pilots to hire,” the exec explained. If I was surprised, it was overshadowed by my joy of reaching my dream.
    “Let’s just go over a few points before you sign on the dotted line,” the company man chortled. “We’re going to send you to the world’s most renowned medical center. They’ll spend two days probing your body orifices, draining and analyzing your blood, and administering psychological exams. They’ll literally take you apart and put you back together. If they find any hint of current or future problems, you’re fired and can find your own ride home.”
    “Gee, I think my health is OK,” I nervously choked out.
    The manager went on, “Good, next we’ll evaluate your flying skills in an aircraft you’ve never been in before. “If we don’t like the way you perform, you’re fired,”
    I was confident with my flying, but this guy was making me nervous.
    He continued, “Next, if you’re still here, we’ll run you through our training program. If during any time in the next 10 years you decide to leave the company, you’ll have to reimburse us $20,000, or we’ll sue you. Also if you fail to measure up during training, you’re fired.”
    The man who had just given me my dream job listed still more hurdles. “Each time, before we allow you near one of our multi-million dollar aircraft we’ll X-ray your flight bag and luggage, because we don’t trust you. Also we’ll ask you to pass through a magnetometer each time. If you fail to do so, you’ll be arrested and jailed.”
    “When you’ve completed your flight, we’ll have you provide a urine sample, because we don’t trust you to not take drugs. Very soon, we plan to take a blood sample to look for more drugs. “Also if you ever fly with another crew member who may have used drugs or alcohol, you must report to us immediately. If you fail to notice that anyone has used these substances, you’ll be fired, have your license to fly revoked, and be fined $10,000.”
    “Every six months, we want you to go back to the medical center for another exam. If they ever find a hint of a problem, your license to fly will be revoked and we’ll fire you. Anytime you see a medical person, you must tell us about it so we can see if you need to be grounded and terminated. Also, we need to examine your driving record, and you must tell us if you have even any minor infractions so we can remove you from the cockpit as soon as possible.”
    “At any time, without notice, a special branch of the government will send one of its inspectors to ride in your aircraft. The inspector will demand to see your papers and license; if your papers are not in order, you’ll be removed, fined, terminated, and possibly jailed.”
    “If at any time you make an error in judgment or an honest human mistake, you will be terminated, be fined tens of thousands of dollars, and be dragged through months of court proceedings. The government will make sure you never fly for any airline ever again.”
    Half our pilots are always on the job at any point in time. “You'll be out of town most holidays, weekends, and family events. 75% of our pilots have been divorced at least once; some even two or three times. You'll frequently be paired with another crew member who rants about how much he’s paying his ex-wife in alimony, and how she's now living in his house with her new boyfriend.
    Smiling an evil smile now, the airline interviewer went on. “Oh, and one last thing to cover. Occasionally, we in management fail to see a trend and screw up royally or the country’s economy falls flat on its face. If as a result of one of those events the corporation begins to lose money, you as an employee will be expected to make up the losses from your paycheck. Of course, management will not be held to the same standards.
    Oh, and one last thing - if we negotiate pay and work rule concessions from you in the in exchange for a better pension plan, we probably won’t fund that pension plan agreement (unlike the management pension plan and golden parachutes) and will likely have yanked it away from you.”
    “Now sign here,” he pointed, grinning as he handed me a pen.
    I faked a sudden nosebleed. Holding my head back and pinching my nostrils, I hurried from his office. When I got to the hall, I began to run. I ran all the way to my car. I figured if I hurried I could still get to the county vocational school before 5:00 and enroll in the industrial welding career program.”

    I'm surprised they were climbing out for so long with the engines at 101-102% N1. They were obviously quite heavy, probably a hot day too, judging from the rollout. Wouldn't it still be normal to reduce power past 1,000ft agl to around 90-95% N1 though?
