Plane with nobody aboard crashes at Nipawin, Sask.
Quote:
A plane with nobody aboard crashed in a field near Nipawin, Sask., and sure enough, nobody was hurt.

It happened shortly before 6 p.m. CST Thursday at the Nipawin Airport, the RCMP said.
An initial investigation revealed the pilot tried to “prop start” the plane by standing in front and spinning
the propeller by hand. The engine turned over, but before he could get inside the Aeronca Chief two-seater,
it began moving forward on the taxiway, gaining enough speed after 10 metres to become airborne.

Police said the pilot was left behind, embarrassed but uninjured.

A little later, the plane crashed.

The plane became airborne in 33 feet?



Misprint at the least...

perhaps there was a fine headwind that gave the wings greater lift

let's not talk about treadmills though, please.

there's a short vid around here of such a light plane landing on a mountain ridge, the guy gets out, has lunch, and turns the plane around and flits off into the clouds again. almost unbelievable. they really do need a surprisingly low speed to attain liftoff.

found it.



and in my search for *that one*, I found *this one*.

Seriously, they just jump into the air.

In the top video, that pilot had to make a damn good estimate
of exactly how far he would "roll" before going over the rim top.

I could just imagine his wife saying:
So the engine won't start, and you are where ???
You Fool, what were you thinking ?

Head wind helped, but, dayum.

me too!!!!

srsly. it takes off in just over one plane length. boioioioing!!!! and poof, it's gone. It took me a bit to realize the literal truth about the title. it touches down, and rolls to a stop in about ten feet. from that stop, it then launches/takes off/springs into the air.

amazing.

Strippers at funerals? OMG that is all different flavours of wrong.

I've said before that I have no moral issue with nekkedness, and women are entitled to earn their living any way they see fit. But the idea of people perving at my funeral (imaginary funeral which people other than my parents and brother attend) isn't one I condone.

I don't do the whole celebration of life thing either. For me personally I mean.
That's for people who lived good lives and had friends.
I'll take a cold reckoning in the rain in Scotland rather than people wearing pink "in my honour". Honour me when I'm alive, when it can do some good. Dead meat doesn't appreciate pink.

Yeah, funerals are pretty much for the living.

The county can bury me in an unmarked grave, for all I care.
