>i don't know much about air travel, or air machines, but this sounds absurd. do you have anything to share that expands on this scenario?

It's not absurd at all. It's self evident. Pilots, and the entire airline industry as a whole, operate with carefully designed checklists with specific operations to be executed in specified orders, which is pulled out and followed to the letter when the situation calls for them. Gears won't retract after takeoff? Gears-won't-retract-checklist is pullet up and followed to the letter. Engine flames out? Co-pilot pulls up the checklist for engine flameout. Stabiliser breaks clean off 4 minutes after take-off? There is no checklist. There is only death.

Of course, in response to that actually happening (flight 587), directives were put in place to reduce the frequency of stabilisers falling off, but there are still no backup plans for the event that a stabiliser falls off in the future. If they were to write such a checklist, it would probably say "Pull out your phone and try to call your loved ones and say goodbye". And that is *exactly* how it should be.

>It's not absurd at all. It's self evident
well, i disagree. the rest of your post doesn't seem to address anything i posted, either. you're telling me that air transport companies have checklists for every scenario imaginable, but also in one specific, known example, they'll ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ and just ... sweep up the wreckage afterwards? what?

so, to be completely clear, i'm politely asking again if you have something well-sourced to verify something you said, which was that
>[...] when a plane is stalled a hundred meters above the ground, the contingency plan is "fuck it".
this is because such absurd, callous disregard for life and safety, for passengers that the company has a duty of care for, is unthinkable; and i'd think that any company that *did* wilfully abandon their responsibility like that would be made an example of by regulators and sued into the ground.

Post whatever aesthetic photos of trains you took, ima start

In this photo I captured the 843.011 DMU in its original livery and with a matching class 043 passenger carriage, on the morning R 1376 "Ještěd" fast train from Pardubice to Liberec.
Taken on the 7th of November 2020 between Pilínkov and Liberec.
This service used to be named after the bigass mountain and its tower in the distance, Ještěd. Sadly, as of today, this fast train service is owned by the Arriva company.

Sure is, dont forget about Slovakia though, they are on a very similiar level :P
Both of our countries still have very many first generation electric locos in service, old diesels, lots of heritage trains, steam locos and such
Anyhow, when it comes to regular trains, I give our railways about 10 years before things get really boring and dull
We do have a a big advantage though, Poland, Hungary, Ukraine etc. is not that far away, so once our railways are done, we will just go a bit further east.. thats what the Germans are doing these days, their railways got pretty boring and now they come to our country all the time :P

Anyhow, to keep this thread from dying.. in this photo, I captured the 242.247 first generation electric locomotive leaving the Mírovka stop with a passenger train from Jihlava to Havlíčkův Brod, 21. 8. 2020

What's with the crop, anon.

Yank here, is it a total waste to get an urban planning degree abroad? American urban planning is so unique I'm worried that if I got a degree in say, Europe, either a significant portion of the material won't apply here or that employers will think a significant portion of the material won't apply here. What if the degree has a large urban policy focus? That seems like it could be even less applicable.

Do you come from wealth? Do you really not mind that we had to spend more money on our education than them? Do you not mind that they also have less checkride failures?
>>
>>1637716
It’s not about the money, it’s about the end result. I’ve taught very capable female pilots and incapable male applicants, but my standards don’t change based upon race or gender. My problem with those hiring practices is that it can make it easier for those less qualified to be up front based upon arbitrary considerations. This is an obvious safety concern, sacrificing capability for the desired company image.

>>1637716
Money isn't really the issue. Sure it was annoying seeing scholarships I couldn't apply to because I wasn't a woman, Hispanic or whatever. But I still worked a job and took out some loans like I needed to. There were a couple girls in my program that were actually solid pilots and some you could tell liked the whole "woman doing a mans job" bullshit. Also had some guys that weren't very skilled and botched some checkrides. The problem is companies hiring women and minorities so they can put a picture of their "diverse" workforce on their website and Facebook page for free WOKE points.

I know a girl who just did her CFI checkride. Passed first try. A week after her ride, she’s on the schedule with the same DPE for a 5 hour block. I ask her if she’s doing her II already and she says “nope! [the DPE] said that I need some work on my maneuvers, so I’m going up with him today for practice”. I asked her why that is happening and she was like “he said during my ride that I need to fix some problems with it”. I literally said “why didn’t he fail you?” And she gave me this blank ass stare as if she didn’t think that was a possibility

Is this a complete scam or does this make any sense?

>The magrail system is a unique magnetic rail technology operating on existing railway tracks at a speed of 300 km/h - 550 km/h. This hybrid solution allows both magnetic vehicles and conventional trains to operate on the same lines.
>Our solution is to modernize the existing tracks with a linear motor installed between the existing rails and with levitation plates mounted on the sides of the track. The linear motor has a form of a third rail mounted on the track axis and will be used for propulsion and braking of vehicles. Levitation plates will be used to lift the vehicle above the surface and to stabilize the vehicle sideways.
>Our system is passive - levitation is the result of vehicle movement. A train at a certain speed will automatically start pushing itself away from the track.
