Pilot Zone / SW PilotSpin fly-in brunch - Saturday October 23, 2021
« on: September 23, 2021, 10:02:56 AM »
We will have a fly-in brunch at Susie's Skyway Restaurant in Prescott AZ (KPRC). Arrivals starting around 10 AM. Transient parking is at Legends Aviation on the SW side of the field. A shuttle to Susie's is available. Fuel is available both there at the FBO from the truck and for a reduced price from the self-serve pumps on the NW side of the runways. Nearby Cottonwood (P52) usually has some of the best fuel prices.

I don’t really consider such people liberals anymore. There is nothing classically liberal about such behavior.

As I often point out (but it gets me accused of trolling on PoA) a peer-reviewed review of the randomized clinical trials of the effect of the general public wearing cloth masks to prevent the spread of influenza like illnesses (Jefferson et al 2020) found that of 14 such trials none, that is 0 of 14, showed a statistically significant effect. They concluded that probably such mask usage provided little to no protection.

Bundgaard et al, the large Danish study which was concluded last year also failed to find a significant effect.

So while it sure seems like they should work based on intuition and laboratory studies say they should, the randomized trials show they don’t actually help much, if at all. This is a rather common result with proposed medical treatments.

Pilot Zone / The Last Fighter Pilot of WWII with video
« on: September 16, 2021, 08:55:08 PM »
 “Take five minutes to watch this magnificent talk --Listen carefully to what Captain Jerry Yellin, the pilot of the last mission of WWII, says and how he says it on his visit to Iwo Jima.

You’ll enjoy every second of it.

How many of the few surviving WWII veterans kept themselves and their uniform in such good condition for over 70 years and can still proudly wear it?

Notice his superb and articulatedelivery, no teleprompter, no script -- just a 91-year-old fighter pilot representing the greatest generation at home and abroad who won WWII.

He has some surprises and a great take on the philosophy of life.

Enjoy !”

I often say that modern politicians are literally just pissing away our legacy of freedom which was so hard won. (pardon the French)

Well technically all political subjects, especially those not aviation related, are prohibited in PoA. Agreed about the decreasing quality of moderation by the MC there.
