I was a TOTAL geek. Well, I use to. But now, I'm not.
Ya, I've changed. But I still love planes. Now it's as if I'm like a normal fan.
Who's not so geeky anymore.
Geek- A person who is obsessed with one or more things.
Nerd- A person who avoids intellectual activities
Anyways, now I'm just a normal person. Who still loves planes a lot. But not always in a mood to find out this and that.
I just love the beauty of the plane. That's why I even uploaded the map "Hosties_Hijacked_Plane" to gamebanana.com .
Click here to download Hosties_Hijacked_Plane! If you have cs source
Ya it's only for CS Source. I dunno, there are some half life props that are put into this map. So maybe you guys could play half life 2 with this map.
Maybe. I dunno, cuz' I dun play Half Life 2. I only play Left 4 Dead and CS Source. Left 4 Dead...I use to play that. Right now, I only see this game online.
I didn't really want this game anyway. I just like to see it better online :D.
It's even more scary when you play. I dunno, some people say it's fun and epic. I dunno, I'm not a zombie-player type of person.
I only play one game on Steam. And that's Counter-Strike:Source. 1.6 and CZ too. But I mostly play Source cuz' the graphics, features, jumps and everything is awesome.
I love the modifications too. Good jump. They made the game so REALLLL!!! Besides. This game is the top game in the FPS History.
This game started somewhere around the 1990s. I dun really like CS: Online. That game totally suck. It's a chinese version. And yet it's the same as the old CS. Just that it's made by China.
And also that the menu, GUI and everything is different. It looks a little bit like WarCraft or something. Like StarCraft and stuff like that.
And yet when you wanna find things, it's sort of hard. I dunno, I dun play CS:Online. Oh ya there's also new weapons that I dunno.
But I dun bother, cuz' it's still the old CS. Anyways. What am I doing? I kept getting off TOPIC!!!
Anyways. Ya I also kept making storybooks with plain paper and draw in all of it that I could think. I drew a storybook a few months ago and I dunno where it is now.
I hope I can find it. D:
So ya, I think I started when I was a freshmen in middle school. I started ever since THAT. I dunno, but back there, life was okay. Not that lucky.
I use to be useless and get yell at a lot. Sometimes my dad beat me ith a cane. You know, sugarcane? He uses those stick that is thin and kind of hard.
But anyways, lets go onto the topic of planes, shall we o_0?
Man, I love this plane
It's the Boeing triple-7. Which also means 777 for morons to understand.
Anyways, when I use this plane to draw it in my storybooks. The hardest thing was the side windows.
You know, the side windows of the cockpit? Ya I had a hard time drawing the curved line at the bottom of the window.
How do you shape those things anyway? Well ya, now I'm still waiting for Roy to finish the second version of Hosties_Hijacked_Plane.
Aw..... it's gonna be sooooo good I tell you. He's gonna put actual airline textures onto the plane.
I actually requested him to put two planes on the map instead of one. And I told him that the first one that he build in the original version to be the KLM texture.
Probably because KLM is a dutch airlines which belongs to his country, Dutch.
So ummmm...ya I hope the 2nd version comes out. I wish he makes a video of the map so we'll know what's what.
Oh well, see you guys and like I said, I'll be reviewing either Korea Air Flight 801 or Air Transat Flight 236.
Cya next time guys!!! :D

Hey guys. I've watched the episode of Gimli Glider on Air Crash Investigation/Mayday.
And of course, it's on Nat Geo. Ya the episode was interesting. Turns out that they didn't pump enough fuel into the plane. Half of it was only transported to the plane.
And yet, it was measured in volume. Not pounds. I dunno which one should be the right one for the plane. But the thing is... I think it should be pounds of the fuel that should be calculated.
Not volume. Sometimes I dunno what the heck is wrong with this ground crew nowadays. They gotta get a more proper training than they already have.
I dunno. But now, I think they did. And I just they're not one of those bastards that didn't take the latest training which is improved.
But anyways, let's get onto the story here. So. The plane only has HALF of it's fuel. Not full.
So the left pump was malfunctioning. Or not working, I'm not sure which is which. Shit.
And it started when the two pumps for the left engine started warning the pilots. I was one before that the alerted the pilots that they have a left engine pump problem.
Then after that, a huge warning came up. The left engine started to lost the left engine. And for those of you who dun understand what I meant, I meant that the left engine stopped working.
Dun be a moron. Anyways, ummmm... ya and basically the two right engine pumps also got warnings. So the same thing happened to the right engine.
It failed. Usually this is a Boeing 767. Boeing 767 dun fall out of the sky when they have lost both of their engines. They have a propeller they deploys under the middle tank.
With it's hydraulic system was able to allow the propeller to spin and produce enough balance to the plane.
Okay, when I said the 767 doesn't fall out of the sky when it lost both of it's engines. I also meant that it only lower it's attitude when the plane is in a straight angle.
The nose doesn't tilt lower. It will still be in the same position. So ya, it only slowly DECENT to the ground.
So Maurice Quintal was the co-pilot. He actually got promoted to Captain after the incident. So ummm... ya they were actually off radar. But the Air Traffic Controller was able to detect where the aircraft was using the old radar method.
So this would tell the pilots how far they are from the runway. So after a few parts. FAST FORWARD!!! Anyways, ummm... ya when Captain Bob Pearson saw a runway that they could land on, he called Maurice to lower the gears.
Which means the wheels for those of you morons who dun know what I meant by gears. So ya the plane had to land without the nose gear. With the nose scratching off the runway as they land.
Ya this an actual screenshot of the 767 landing on the runway. As you can see the nose gear was stuck. So it maybe scratched and it also may come off the plane.
The whole plane is in one piece except the nose gear. So before they land. Captain Bob was actually flying the plane and it's also making a side slip.
A side slip is very much like a racing car drifting on the road. Basically it's also something you see in Cars:the movie.
Where Dr. Hudson was drifting when he drove. Okay, I think you guys already know what drifting means.
It's when a car drives with it's side facing forward rather than it's front. Come, let me show you the image of how the plane was actually flying.
|the plane performing a sideslip&nose not fully deployed|
|when plane is about to land on the runway|
But it will cause a plane to lower it's attitude quicker.
And it's likely to cause a plane to crash if it's too near to the ground. I'm not sure. But most likely.
Most pilots dun use this kind of method to land a plane when there's an emergency. So if they plane had not perform a sideslip.
The plane wouldn't have made it all the way to the runway. Anyway I love this episode so it's awesome.
I love it when there are survivors in episodes. Like this! It rocks when there are no casualties. Which means of lives being lost.
I guess. I think it's the meaning. You can go dictionary.com to find out the answer. Sorry, I'm too lazy to find it now. Heh heh >_o
Anyways. Ya so the only problem was that there was not enough fuel. No a big problem. At least this case is much more less complicated and cause a lot a frustration. Which the investigators find it easy to find out what took down Flight 143.
Well, here are the links to the episodes. And they are seperated by parts. Here is part:
1 2 3 4 5
Ya there are 5 parts in this video. I found it on YouTube. Usually YouTube has most of the Air Crash Investigation episodes.
So click 1,2,3,4 and 5 to see the parts of the video. For some reason, I cannot find part 2 when I got to part 1 in the suggestion bar. I also couldn't find part 3 when I got to part 2 in the suggestion bar.
I hope you understand I what I mean. Cmon! It's so easy to understand.
So uhhh...next, I'm gonna review either Korea Air 801 or Air Transat Flight 236 review. Ya I'm still a fan of planes. It's hard to explain how I love planes now.
I dunno, I just can't explain it. Just wish that the computer can scan my brain and know what I'm thinkubg if and visualizing it.
Okay, I think I'll share how I love planes after I submit this post to my blog. See you guys in a while. For those of you who passed the time when I've already finish it, come to this post to read it.
Whatever. Just see you in the next post. Cuz' I'm getting totally off topic. So I'll end this and talk more stuff about how I love planes ever since I was young. Bye!
