    Some new planes in the field house this week. Anyone else ever shut down an active runway due to a flat? :anonymous:

    This was from last week before they took the supermarine out to the hanger.

    It's simple because there's no real identifying parent company other than it being government own. This aircraft was under 24/7 escort by multiple MOD's (manager on duty) with crew onboard the whole time which they were not allowed to leave the aircraft.

    Coworkers and I were joking saying FBI, NSA, DEA, or whichever 3 letter organization is here for someone. Maybe they were?

    ...^^^... Just a guess here ... but Western Global is a modern day Southern Air Transport to me.

    Those guys carried a lot of fancier ordinance in the past.

    Remember Eugene Hasenfus at Southern Air ?

    I did in a Cirrus one day.

    Absolute greaser, then the plane started shaking violently. Couldn’t keep it on the centerline; damn near went off the left side. Left main tire had gone flat sometime enroute.

    My buddy just became a Cirrus sales rep and he took my up in a 2019 model with less than 20 hours on it. That thing is more advanced than the B737 (to be fair though, most planes are)!

    I hadn’t flown a single-engine plane since 2013 so it was fun to get back into GA.

    That’s the one with the built-in whole plane parachute, right? We had one stall out locally (operator error) and they ops-checked that parachute.

    Worth. The. Money.

    Yeah, that’s the one! It also has other features that won’t let it bank past 45° and it will level itself from any attitude if you push a little blue button. Overall it seems very safe, but I would say that it make a pilot rather complacent.

    But the detonating charge that deploys that parachute makes it a bugger for the rescue guys if it crashed without activating.

    Wile E. Coyote’s parachute always deploys on impact. Dependable.
