      Crew chief took off in a 130

      Hi Richard, I'm one of the guys involved in the search. Just registered on here purely to let you know that once we get a decent break in the weather the physical search will commence.  We think the story deserves an ending and hope one day to be able to tell his family why Paul never made it home. As others have pointed out, there's so many rumours around that it's hard to know what to believe so we take it all in and keep an open mind. There's a lot going on around the search, hopefully I can come back in a little while and give you a link once we've got everything edited and ready for publication.  The transcripts of the radio communication would be great if these could be located again, I know what it's like changing computers and losing files though. Sorry I couldn't go into too much detail now, I'll update you once the website is published which will have more information. Cheers Paul Deeper Dorset

      Was RPM doing anything, and if so, which direction in relation to TIT? Also, were torque and TIT low together, or opposite each other?

      Stealing Watermelons
      By Sonny · Posted
      Some kids were stealing watermelons from a local farmer's watermelon patch. So the farmer made a sign and posted it in the field. The next day, the kids showed up and saw the sign which read, "Warning! One of the watermelons in this field has been injected with cyanide." The kids ran off, made their own sign and posted it next to the farmer's. That morning the farmer saw that no watermelons were missing. Then he saw the sign next to his which read, "Now there are two!"

      These aren't Murphy's Laws......
      By Sonny · Posted
      These aren't Murphy's Laws but some of them should be: "The Law of Volunteering"--If you dance with a grizzly bear, you had better let him lead.
      "The Law of Avoiding Oversell"--When putting cheese in a mousetrap, always leave room for the mouse.
      "The Law of Common Sense" --Never accept a drink from a urologist.
      "The Law of Reality" --Never get into fights with ugly people, they have nothing to lose.
      "The Law of Self Sacrifice" --When you starve with a tiger, the tiger starves last.
      "The Law of Motivation" --Creativity is great, but plagiarism is faster.

      "Law of Probable Dispersal" --Whatever hits the fan will not be evenly distributed.
      "Law of Volunteer Labor" --People are always available for work in the past tense.
      "Conway's Law" --In any organization there is one person who knows what is going on. That person must be fired.

      "Law of Cybernetic Entomology" --There is always one more bug.
      "Law of Drunkedness" --You can't fall off the floor.
      "Peter's Law" --The first myth of management is that it exists.
      "Osborne's Law" --Variables won't; constants aren't.

      "Weinberg's Second Law" --If builders built buildings the way programmers wrote programs, then the first woodpecker that came along would have destroyed civilization.

      Wedding Ceremony
      By Sonny · Posted
      At a wedding ceremony, the pastor asked if anyone had anything to say concerning the union of the bride and groom. It was their time to stand up and talk, or forever hold their peace. The moment of utter silence was broken by a young beautiful woman carrying an infant. She started walking toward the pastor slowly. Everything quickly turned to chaos. The bride slapped the groom. The groom's mother fainted. The groomsmen started giving each other looks and wondering how best to help save the situation. The pastor asked the woman, "Can you tell us why you came forward? What do you have to say?" The woman replied, "We can't hear in the back."
