I concur with the mod in the sombrero!
Seriously, @AVB-AMG.. I've been lucky enough to attend quite a few events that had high-level speakers (e.g., George W. Bush while he was POTUS, Madeline Albright, Shirley Chisholm, etc.). There's always a certain amount of pomp and circumstance when a high-level speaker is afoot, particularly a sitting POTUS (POTUS swaggers in with a cadre of Secret Service agents - it's kinda badass really)… and that stands separate and apart from their actual political views. As others pointed out, they're big, newsworthy events - especially in our tiny garden state. How's this? If the next Democratic president holds a rally in NJ, feel free to put it in General Discussion!
Yup. Here it comes. Thats quite ballsy to do it in Oklahoma. Itll have no traction there. I believe. Its too far from the north east. Its probably Just a test.
nevermind photo. Just seeing how it works
Shooters always asks before handing over a gun. Personally, I feel it's a nothingburger, life is too short to worry about this type of stuff. Are people this upset when a cashier asks for ID when paying by check?
Everyone should be MORE upset with the fact that Trenton actually makes you get the (unconstitutional) FID in the first place....
After engine failure, sure. .. But flying into the side of a hillside in near zero visibility pretty much takes using the energy in the windmilling rotor to decelerate out of the equation.
The pilot requested and was granted a Special VFR clearance that required he maintain visual contact with the ground. Quite a bit different than SVFR in an airplane. He apparently lost visual contact with the ground, then flew into it.
I suspect he didn’t consider that the decisions he was making looked like the beginning of an NTSB accident report.
