    Default First crash of LM F-35

    Not been in service long, the first stack of a high tech jet. How many more? Personally, I prefer the Harrier.

    Bad two days for air crashes. Others include the Air Niugini 737-800 entering the lagoon at Micronesia and two Nigerian Air Force F-7 jetfighters crashing during a display rehearsal.

    737 being that slight problem with SEA CRM.. What is TOGA? We are not Romans? Nigerians wanted some corruption so did it.

    Of course TOGA is Take Off Go Round. Thrust Levers to take off power and autopilot on a climb setting of a positive rate depending on type. It was a joke, however the captain should have aborted landing and either used it if still in autopilot or manually taken control and taken off to do a go around, unless he had a tech issue that would prevent him (an we know there are massive regulatory and maintenance issues with that area).

    Conflicting reports about the Air Niugini 737, runway undershoot or overrun? One fatality confirmed. Aircraft written off. I was actually looking forward to seeing a recovery project similar to the A320 in the Hudson River.

    It's also a dress that you can make out of a bed sheet. Always good for impromptu crew parties when an engineer gets to go down route and doesn't have anything suitable to wear!
    God created aircraft mechanics so that pilots can have heroes too.
