:D (was that a ToSeeked?)


btw the link seems to have broken, it doesn't work anymore here. I hadn't checked out the article yet, but I'd seen the image. EDIT: some hours later, all works fine again here.

If only I hadn't stopped to write "OK" I would have beaten you to it I think. #-o

Nearly three hours without a reply and then a double tap from us. Just shows that brevity pays. :D

Most cabbies are crazy enough drivers on the ground. No way I'm getting in that thing! [-(

I thought I'd stay polite here, but you really have driven it too far Sarongsong. You're such a cab! :)

But when was the last time you saw a cab that could taxi?

(Sarongsong:http://www.badastronomy.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=19161 shows "important" milestones, and the "posts:" thingie counts up as you post, that's why it is there. That post was my 1111th post)

Ah, OK, didn't realize the post-counter reflects the current overall total, even when viewing an 'old' message---cool! But why is 1111 considered a milestone?

That's only 15 in binary!

(Just because it looks good, like Mickal555 pointed out: 1000, 1111, 1234, getting to the first 50 on post count etcetc.)

Do I read it correct that every passenger actually has an ejection seat, or should I interpret that extra "jumpseat" they added like the 4th cockpit seat in old airliners, just an extra seat if there is an extra person (in that case, certified crew).

YOU CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAB!!!!!!

(just trying to get attention).

Does anybody have info on my jumpseat question? Their site stated they had placed a 7th jumpseat, and I wondered if that meant an "extra crew" seat, or that all passengers had ejection seats (only a few would be nice, that's what I call a multi class cabin :) )

4. The operating efficiency of the aircraft has impressed the aerospace design intranet of talent currently working on the Jetpod. Thus far, the increased performance we have discovered means that two extra jump seats can be added (if required). The aircraft can now carry seven (7) fare-paying passengers in the commuter role, and at the same time, the installed thrust reduced to 2,500 lbs on each of the two engines, thereby reducing cost and improving fuel-burn.

that means 7 pax and a pilot (they had 6 seats inluding pilot, and now they added 2 extra seats in the design). My question remains, are those 'jumpseats" ejection seats or do they just mean "extra seats for optional extra passengers". (they are not for crew it seems from this text).

Hmmm is there a pattern here? :D

I think "jump seat" normally means an extra seat, often one that folds up against the wall. I'm not sure if anyone uses it to refer to an ejection seat. I don't think I've heard that.

Dictionary.com (http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=jump%20seat) agrees with me.

OK cleared up then. Thanks for the info. I'm always confused by the word "jump seat", it just sounds like an ejection seat to me :).

CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAB :D

Well, yes, but never having been to NYC, and having seen all those movies about how difficult it can be to hail one in a 'big' city, thought maybe I could pick up some pointers from BABBers who are practised in the art. :lol:
