Jul 16th 2010 11:32AM Diagonal cutters (dikes) would have been a much better choice as a tool for cutting a coathanger,especially if they were LARGE with plenty of leverage.
Jul 6th 2010 2:31PM Diesels aren't the noisy, stinky vehicles of 10 years ago. Even the fuel is now low-sulfur and pollutes less. B20 biodiesel will lower the pollution even more and works well in older vehicles. Diesels will work towards energy independance until new technologies come along and can take over.
Jun 22nd 2010 11:57PM LETS see if reply works-The above post deals with the DC-10 crash.
Jun 22nd 2010 11:51PM The maintenence crew used the 3 engine mount bolts to PULL the newly overhauled engine up and into place- A HUGE no-no and overstressed the bolts to cause their failure. The engine - under take off power, went up and over the wing- Taking out all the hydraulic lines in the leading edge of the wing.
Jun 22nd 2010 11:35PM I found/repaired cracks on 767 pylons 21 years ago as a mechanic for TWA. The JT9 engines we had vibrated the crap out of the pylons (and EVERYTHING else inside the pylon) and work hardened the metal and you got cracks. Nothing new here. Since TWA was "aquired" by American the plane pictured above may be one of "ours" painted in Americans' livery. Might even be ship 2- The 2nd 767 ever made. NASA has ship 1. Properly maintained an airplane will fly FOREVER.

May 17th 2010 1:28AM All I can say is I made more $ 25 years ago than I do today. Who can afford to be safe at todays redicuosly low ticket prices ? When I was a kid it cost my dad over $400.00 per ticket to fly JFK to Heathrow one-way coach- IN 1966 !
May 16th 2010 11:57PM I first saw Ronnie in Pittsburgh on the Black (Sabbath)and Blue (Oyster Cult)tour in 1980 as Sabbaths "new" vocalist. Last time was in Atlanta about 9-10 years ago at Lakewood Amphitheater. 20 years older and his voice was just as powerful. The guy was DEFINITELY one of the premiere frontmen of rock, probably THE best in Metal. You could tell he loved what he did for a living (since 1957 !). Peace.
