17. In other words, you got nothing, as usual.
I said: The article gives the impression that the plane would necessarily stall at speeds under 77 knots. This is a load of crap.

I also said: While actual stall speeds depend on a multitude of factors, the idea that 76 knot speed (with engine and propeller confirmed to be operating just fine at the time of the crash by the NTSB) in +1 C temperatures necessarily resulted in a stall is complete load of crap.

These are both true statements and you know it. Yes, I was blustery in response to the reporter's error, but no more blustery than you were in response to my error. I was pointing out the reporter's incorrect definition of stall speed (which was 4 knots higher than the A-100 flight manual's, btw) as the speed the aircraft must stall out at.

If I'd said the exact same thing, you would have jumped down my throat with baseball cleats.

I only have so many "bullshit overblown gotchas" left in me to deal with your prattle. Perhaps you'll win by dint of sheer persistance, certainly not by content.

Who exactly do you think you're fooling here? This the very first thread you've posted on since the new message boards came out.

And you arrived mighty fast to save the day!

So don't give up now, lest you be exposed, once more, as the puffed up bluffer you are.

Finally, I'm not trying to win anything. If you have a legitimate beef, I'm all ears. You can lend constructive criticism when you feel like it, and everyone can benefit from that.
