    [03x14] April 11, 2019 - Funeral for a Ford

    To be honest: Don't care about these old Fords too much. I have no personal connection to any of these old cars (also not in my family). But it was an entertaining episode but for me no where near like a real "special" they did. But I wonder about the reason why they change the format. I was...

    [03x13] April 5, 2019 - GT Special: Survival of the Fattest

    Awesome episode! And finally.... not about annoying car breakdowns and leaving the other behind! Well done. Worth every second.

    Cancer Sucks

    What horrible news :-( It hits me really hard, because almost 20 years ago, when I was 15 years old, I had to fight leukemia as well. I have been on this Forum for~12 years, sadly not very active in the recent years, but there was a time (when I was still a student and when I wasn't all wound...

    Ok. I can't tell you anything about "manual" navigating. I spent most of my time learning how to program the FMC, reading charts and the use and programming of SID/STAR procedures. Until today, I've never flown a "simple" plane in X-Plane. Only 777,747,A320 and A350.

    I did the same about 2 years ago... but started right away with the 777. Its fun. If you have specific questions... don't hesitate to ask.

    I guess, that the A380 isn't actually flying THAT slow. I've been spotting in Frankfurt regularly, when my wife still studied there. Approaches of the A380 seemed always slow, because of the sheer size of the plane.Objectively the approach speed of a A320 and an A380 in a typical configuration...

    Anyway, it was the safe thing to do imo. The 767 couldn't be sure that they wouldn't maybe even stop on the runway or turn on it.

    The World Cup Brazil 2014

    :lol::lol: I've heard that for the first time today (not such a surprise because I care shit about soccer...) BUT... I'm surprised that despite of all political correctness we're forced to represent they dare to chose such a slogan...

    Abandoned main road

    Not sure if it really fits here... but seeing the "abandoned main road" thread reminded me of one Sunday morning, when I came out of a nightclub in Frankfurt and there wasn't a single car visible anywhere....

    Although I've read the article... I still don't understand what it means. So this plane is special because nothing is defective?

    Does anybody know how to find something on this flightaware website? I was flying from Fuerteventura to Frankfurt on 2013-09-13 (XG4422). Wanted to look up the flightpath... but I don't know how to look for a past flight. Don't find anything... what am I missing?

    The Positivity Thread aka "Today was a great day because....."

    Today is a good day because I was able to cancel that trip I was happy about 12 days ago... and change it to a worse hotel for a higher price @ Fuerteventura... No honestly... I really can't imagine going to Egypt with my blond girlfriend after what happened during the last couple of days... It...

    I've heard from some FRA spotters, who were waiting for the BA A380 that they use it to train flight attendants during these short flights from London to Frankfurt until the end of August. But I also heard, that they don't take more people with them than on the regular planes (A320??) because in...
