Trinity Broadcasting Global Express N3PC

Interesting tail number on the plane of Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker's old ministry.

Is it really "Politically Correct" for a televangelist to squeeze every dime out of their devout followers and then blow it all on a GLEX?

Foxconn Employee Mistreatment

The horror stories never seem to end.

This Gulfstream 550 is owned by Foxconn .

Imagine having to ride on this instead of a more spacious Falcon 900. Sickening.

The Dangerous Q400

Ya, we know this thing must have passed some sorta certification criteria.

All we're saying is:

When you're seated in the middle of it, those exit doors look preeety faar aaawaay.

Your only hope its that it snaps in half so you can get out quicker.

Scotch Whisky Murderer's Row

We've seen this collection of single-malt Scotches referred to as "Murderer's Row."

Yes, these are "full flavor." But their nuances lend them to different applications.

"It seems like I just had my birthday." - Lagavulin

"Your relatives? For two weeks?" - Caol Ila

"That porterhouse was cooked perfectly, dear." - Ardbeg

"One mean snowstorm out there." - Laphroig

"I'm glad we bought that sweet Buick Roadmaster today." - Talisker

To paraphrase Ronald Reagan,

Some people live an entire lifetime and wonder if they have ever made a difference in the world, but our troops don't have that problem.

Mokulele N861MA Emergency Landing Preliminary Report ID WPR14FA024

 Preliminary Report is HERE .

The report incorrectly states the position of the aircraft relative to the island of Maui.

Maybe the NTSB should calibrate their compass and DME?

Check for yourself. If they heard the bang while over Wailea, and then turned to go 9 miles South, where would that put them?

Aerodynamic Truck Trailer

We don't really care if these mods improve efficiency, we just think they look cool.

And why does "efficiency" have an "i" before the "e" after the "c."
