Open flaps and "R" as you shoot ground target!

 

One learns new things everyday...I guess.



WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...
I am deaf, silent, and fly with unrealistic controls. Do not count on me to carry - my back's already broken from overweight.

When you reject the world around you you tend to become incomprehensible...

You can quote all the fortune cookie wisdom you want. The post is still offensive - period.

This is used on the Airbus to remind pilots to pull the throttles back to idle so they can engage the Reverse Thrusters.

Hey folks,

Language is a tricky thing, words can definitely have very different uses and hold different weight among different groups of people.

I believe the spirit of this post was,"Hey you might hear this word being used in a vastly different context than the derogatory when it comes to aviation."

Point taken but I don't think anything good will come from this thread so I am wrapping it up before reports flood the system.
