Peak. LIke yourTIL
A horse is equivalent to 15 horsepower....
So you are just saying its not a good idea to shoot up to 15K and then back down quickly... but not arguing that its impossible with current technology.I can't take an airplane up to 15,000 without supplemental oxygen. Without a pressure suit, someone used to near sea level pressures would probably end up with bonkers judgmental skills from hypoxia with such a rapid ascent. Most airlines are pressurized to 8,000 feet, a few newer models are pressurized to 6,000 feet. Go too high for too long, you end up with hypoxia and it's ... lights out. Nevermind the weird effects it would cause on your body. Ear pain, if not ruptured eardrums. The air pressure at 15,000 is not much more than half what it is at sea level...
Regulations are (for unpressurized aircraft) no flight over 14,000 without oxygen. If you're between 12,500 and 14,000 you need to be on oxygen after 30 minutes. Under 12,500 there's no requirement. But everyone responds differently to the different altitudes. Coming home one time at 8500, my wife felt lightheaded and sleepy, but I felt fine.
No, it has 21.
Yes! That's the one I was thinking about, the MD-80!!Maybe you're thinking of the MD-80 series? The DC8 is a relic of the late 50s into the 70s, it was the competitor to the Boeing 707. The DC7 is a 4-engine propliner.
I kid you not there was for years a red 1959 Plymouth for sale on Gary avenue in Keenyville that not only looked like Christine(one year off) but looked just like the neighborhood/house of the guy who sold it in the movie. I gave it a good look over once, called my name every time I drove by it. One cursed car to obsess about at a time though. 🤣Matt ...
Probably an MD-88 or MD-90. Those aircraft in Delta's fleet were long overdue to be retired. Fortunately for Delta they held onto them long enough to avoid the Boeing 737 MAX woes. They're upgrading with Airbus A220s, A321s and A321neos.One of my friends is a pilot for Delta. It took him 10yrs of being a copilot to becoming pilot.
He lives out in GA and flies out of ATL on all his trips. IIRC he was flying the DC-7 or DC-8 until Delta recently retired that plane from it's airplane inventory.
1) I'll bet dollars to donuts that the Reverse lock is there. if you had tried moving forward under power, I doubt would have been able to throw it reverse; there's just no secondary lock like a ring or push down motion. My Audi has a similar all the way left and forward reverse.So I got the airbag recall notice for my 6GA a few months ago. Fast forward to three weeks ago and they say parts are available and to stroll on in to my nearest convinient stealership. So I do that on Saturday.
Instead of waiting ~2hrs for service I decide to walk the lot and (as expected) was approached by a salesperson. We talk Civic with MT, and she shows me one. I scope it out, look around, all this time she's talking to me about features that are blatantly obvious like she's just trying to remember key talking points from a script she had to memorize. I ask her technical questions and she fumbles with her answers or says "I don't know that". I dismiss these things and ask her for a test drive. And in typical dealer fashion, the car needs to get moved. She tries to play the fact that she doesn't know how to drive stick all slick-like by asking for my driver's license and while she's making a photocopy of my DL, her manager comes out and moves the car around the front while I "wait" for her to come back. She comes out, and we get in the car. She starts pointing out interior features of the car. I grab the shifter and row the gears to feel for them, and I have to say that I did not like gears 5, 6, and R. This was the first 6spd MT I've driven that had no reverse "safety lock" (IDK what it's called). For example, my Mazda RX-8 I had to push down on the shifter and other 6spds have a pull ring in order to get them into reverse gear. Not the Civic though. It was full on hard right and down. Anyway, we get in the car and we start driving. I'm trying to get a feel for the car and the clutch feels really soft and real high. Not a big deal really since it's a car I wasn't used to. We drive down the street and back. Mind you, the car had 38 miles at the time I drove it. We get back, and she asks if I'm interested in anything else. I say the new Accords.
We walk the lot a little bit and she shows me the Accords, and we encounter a Blue 1.5T Sport. Just like the Civic, she's trying to remember key talking points from some sort of script relating to the exterior of the car. She pulls the car around (because it's AT, lol) and we get in. She's pointing out all sorts of interior features and I'm looking at it and thinking in my head, "this is my 6GA but just with 20yrs of newer tech and features". It's surprisingly similar to my 6GA. Sure, there were obvious key differences like the infotainment thing, and the cluster itself, but at the core design of it all, it was my 6GA. It was by far roomier than my 6GA though, for sure, and that I did like a lot. We finally get to driving and she says I can take a different route, a longer route by about 1-1/2 miles. I ask her "why such a difference in routes?" To which she replied, "because the Civic is a manual and we want to keep the miles down on them as much as possible because manuals are so rare these days." This Accord had only 6 miles. When we finish the test drive, we head back in to the showroom floor.
She leads me to an available cubicle to where I sit down while she goes fetch paperwork; the infamous 4 boxes sheet of paper. We start talking and she's asking me which of the two I liked better and where we stand in terms of numbers. I tell her I wasn't really impressed with either of the two cars. I tell her that both cars had features that were real nice, but neither one of them had anything that I really wanted. The Civic is about the same size as my 6GA and the 10GA is basically a bigger new version of my car. Right then I get a call from the service department stating that my car is ready. It's at this point in time she realized what's going on and why I was test driving cars. She then asks me, "so what was the purpose of this visit?" To which I replied, "informative." I saw her sink, lol. I tell her I'm not quite ready for buying a car yet as I'm in the middle of refinancing and I can't have a hit on my credit at the moment. She asks when I can come back and I tell her mid to late November based on my refinance timeline.
So for now, the ball has been punted down the field for when they'll call me to try and come in. I'm not ready to buy yet. I need to pay off a couple debts first and sell my 6GA to get a down payment and be able to afford a car payment and (likely) increased insurance costs.
Anyway, as I was walking out of the stealership, I noticed one thing. I was the oldest car on that lot. View attachment 39671

Any particular reason you're skeptical? I don't watch much for news, so what ever comes across my FB or light web surfing is all I get. Haven't read anything to this effect.Q: you guys think there will be a debate in 2 days? I'm skeptical
I honestly think a mute button will offer fantastic comedy in split screen.Any particular reason you're skeptical? I don't watch much for news, so what ever comes across my FB or light web surfing is all I get. Haven't read anything to this effect.
I must say, as long as it's used fairly the mute button is a great idea. That being said, not nearly as entertaining.
