  2. In that case, his legs are on backward. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  3. Reminder: Kimmie is not a neighbor, unless you consider people 6 miles away to be your neighbors. And this is the same old bat who complained about traffic originating from Centennial Airport THIRTY-NINE MILES AWAY. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  4. Hint: Count the names of plaintiffs in the trial, and count the names in the appeal. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  5. It got better as it progressed. On the second day, the defense proved plaintiff witness Jennings was a damned liar. On the morning of the 3rd day, Gibbs took the stand. At noon on the 3rd day, the defense began calling its witnesses. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  6. OK, a correction: I just pulled up my trial notes to compare with that transcript. The transcript is just the first day of a five day trial! "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  7. Max 26 weeks per this: https://www.legalconsumer.com/unemploymentlaw/?ST=CO "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  8. It is probably missing for this reason: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dx32b5igLwA "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  9. I had not looked at the CQS website in months, but today I took a glance, and it looks like they put the actual trial transcript online! http://citizensforquietskies.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/201501413-CQS-trial-transcript.pdf ETA Someone pointed out this is only the first half of the trail, i.e. the portion where the plaintiff witnesses are called, and a quick skim through it seems to confirm that.

  10. I went through a 3-day tunnel camp some years back, and one of my peers was in the same situation as you: no jumps and about to start AFF. Over the 3 days each of us accumulated about an hour. So this was his first flight: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GhNUEEQYAOY And this was him 3 days later with about an hour of tunnel flight: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pjLfxflnoOU The instructor in black is Eliana Rodriguez.

  11. I'm not sure I would classify that as a real spin. It looks more like a Vmc roll to me: 1. Port engine throttled back. 2. Aft CG. 3. Airspeed falls below Vmc. 4. Starboard engine pulls it's wing over the top. I was in a KingAir that did a Vmc roll on jumprun, and it did just that. In both cases, once the nose was pointed at the ground, the spin ended.

  12. Only the lower half of the wheel is exposed when retracted. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  13. Gear positively is down. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  14. That's a hysterical skit from Saturday Night Live. Love it. How many people today realize they are doing a parody of the segment at the end of "60 Minutes" that pre-dated Andy Rooney? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cESACuuh6kM "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  15. Has anyone ever checked his forearms for burn scars? "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  16. Whiner-in-Chief's FB page just pointed to this. Timeline for the appeal on the lower part of the page: http://us11.campaign-archive1.com/?u=0060ac2a550b8429f65211dc5&id=a809ab8356 "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  17. Amazon link: http://www.amazon.com/Marijuana-Smuggling-Profit-Robert-Bach-ebook/dp/B007FM1E60/ref=sr_1_1 I found this book mentioned in the Amazon comments of the book "Sugar Alpha": http://www.amazon.com/Sugar-Alpha-Times-Huevos-Grandes/dp/1475989393 Searching Dizzy for the title and the authors name, turned up nothing. I read "Sugar Alpha" as soon as it was released on Kindle. After seeing the Amazon comments on the Bach book, I immediately bought the Kindle copy and just finished it yesterday. Does anyone know if "Robert Bach" is a nom de plume, or a real name? Does anyone know the guy personally? ETA: This is pretty much the "Sugar Alpha" story from one of the pilots who flew for Roger, so the perspective is quite different.

  18. Yes, due to a copy/paste mishap from composing in a terminal window, the closing parenthesis got lost, but I didn't notice until it was too late to edit it. And yes the "2" belongs in there. Look around on the net and you will find the same equation. In some cases the "m * a" is replaced by a "W" for weight). "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  19. Vt = sqrt((2 * m * a)/(Cd * rho * A) where: Vt => terminal velocity (m/s) m => mass (kg) a => acceleration (m/s^2) Cd => coefficient of drag (dimensionless) rho => air density (kg/m^3) A => frontal area (m^2) So anything that makes the numerator larger, increases speed. - "m" increasing mass. - "a" always equals "g" i.e. 9.8m/s^2 for freefall. Anything that makes the denominator larger, decreases speed. - "Cd": Changes with body position, e.g. bellyflying generates higher Cd than headdown. - "rho": Increases with higher barometric pressure, lower altitude, or colder, drier air. - "A": Increases with flatter body position, and/or bigger jumpsuit, especially a wingsuit.

  22. No, we can't. "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  23. Gee, if 2015 was such a rough year for her, she might consider a hobby other than filing frivolous lawsuits.
  24. eventually yes, but civil courts are weird in this country and vary widely from place to place. It could take years for contempt to happen, if at all. The more likely scenario is the seizure of property and foreclosure on her house, and even that could take years. Don't forget that she is appealing the verdict. That will take a while to percolate through the system. IIRC, she had to put the money up (actually 125% of it) as a bond for the appeal to go forward. But it won't be paid to Mile-Hi until the appeal is denied. Yes, see post 1402 about the 125%: http://www.dropzone.com/cgi-bin/forum/gforum.cgi?post=4748810#4748810 Also a reminder there are two different rulings regarding CQS owing money to MHS. There were 7 claims in the lawsuit: - The 4 claims that were so bogus that were tossed out before it ever went to trial. MHS was awarded cost (including attorney fees) for dealing with these. - The 3 claims that went to trial. MHS was awarded costs (excluding attorney fees) for dealing with these. Now at one point I was told that only the latter award was put on hold by the appeal, and the deadline for the former award still stood. But the article in the link in post 1402 seems to disagree.

  25. Consider the source: Jim "Capt Zoom" Campbell. I wouldn't believe anything he says without confirmation from other sources.
