|Found on the Flight International magazine issue February 26, 2019.
Name that plane.
The following advert was a tweet by the Virgin Group -
Did you know the avionics bay can be accessed by a hidden ladder in the nose wheel bay on a Boeing 747?
Finally, total aviation persons among us can, of course, tell immediately from this (since deleted) Virgin Group tweet that the aircraft in the picture is not actually a Boeing 747. There is one subtle clue. See if you can spot it? The ladder may be hiding.
|There are Rules and there are Laws.
Rules are made by men who think that they know better how to fly your airplane than you.
Laws (of Physics) were ordained by nature. You can, and sometimes should, suspend the Rules but you can never suspend the Laws.
a. The rules are a good place to hide if you don't have a better idea and the talent to execute it.
b. If you deviate from a rule, it must be a flawless performance. (e.g. If you fly under a bridge, don't hit the bridge.)
