That was all over the news here. Can't believe no one got hurt, the commuter plane got whipped around like a toy!

Yeah we were all talking about it last night on our way to Tokyo. Not sure what happened, apparantly the A380 was headding out for takeoff and the little Regional Jet was taxiing in to park, but looked to me like he stopped short waiting for his gate to come open, and obviously the AF guys never saw him stopping short, with his tail still hanging out there in the...way.

The hardest part of the job is not the "flying", it's the taxiing around a busy aiprort at night in the rain.

And I'll get my turn tomorrow morning at 2am in Singapore...watch CNN, you may see me!

Don't land on the alternate runway with all the planters down the middle.

Hey, real men land where ever they damn well please!

A good landing is any landing you can walk away from. A GREAT landing is one where they can use the airplane again...

Yup, you can even smack another airplane's tail, with your wingtip, so hard you spin it 90 degrees...once!

I'll bet he -never- does that again!

On the water, it's the sole responsibility of the smaller vessel to steer around the larger.
