How do you land a A300 Airbus?

Landing a big airliner is hard for someone who isn't a professional pilot. On a non-ILS approach you should set flaps to 3, maintain speed at 160 knots and decent smoothly to the runway. The hard part is to align with the runway. Try to aim for the lines at the center. When you are about to land lower the gears and set the throttles to "IDLE". When you are over the runway put back on the yoke to pitch the nose up and make the base gears touch down first. You want to perform a "stall" over the runway at a vertical speed less than -250 feet/minute. When the base gears are on the ground put the throttles at reverse mode by getting the levers all the way back. Try to brake smoothly by pressing down at the pedals. Your aim is to keep the airplane at the center line of the runway. When the airplane comes to a complete stop, set barking brakes and switch off the engines (the switch is under the throttle). The information above should be used ONLY when on emergency! In that case before doing anything, you should get the on the microphone and while holding down the talk button, you must say: "Mayday mayday mayday. Flight XXX is declaring emergency. Request immediate landing with IFR rules and visual approach. Full emergency crew required." Then you should set the "squawk" at 7700. To do that search for a 4 digit display near the radio panel.

What causes white or gray smoke to come out of the valve cover PVC opening and hose to the air cleaner?

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is simply caused by excessive blowby. In short, this engine is worn out.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

AnswerAssuming it's not on fire... I would replace the pcv first, if smoke persist open radiator cap, with engine running (cold of course) see if radiator bubbles. also look for oil on the bottom of radiator cap or pull dip stick and check for water in oil, the oil will appear to be milky looking. if none of these factors as long as none of these factors, you more than likely have a high mileage engine as long as your not sucking oil into the intake run it. start saving your money for a rebuild or sell it soon.

PCV opening: Engine gasses getting by the pistons. (Blow by) If there's alot of it, it's time to rebuild. Alot is subjective.. Some fluttering is normal. Positive pressure or a continuous stream is not.

AnswerIs this with PCV in place? If so, PCV system may be plugged, not removing blow by fumes.

= if you getting wite or grey smoke from valve cover etc, you have water in your engine this is caused by a blown head gasket get it fixed before you crack the head

Do many attorneys take pay-offs?

The question not being more specific makes it a little difficult to answer. Nevertheless, if it is referring to attorneys taking bribes to manipulate the outcome of a case, then the answer is most definitely, NO ! However there always exception.

If it pertains to a settlement for debt, then the answer would be yes, although it is not the attorney who receives the settlement amount it is the creditor who is owed the debt.

_____

It depends on what you define as a "pay-off" and how the pay-off is carried out. According to a lifelong friend who has worked for 30 yrs as an insurance claims agent and later executive of a major insurance company, "The lawyers, judges, clinics and doctors involved in accident cases involving a lot of money,routinely make crooked deals behind the scenes between insurance company lawyers, judges and doctors. There are even a few lawyers who have NEVER lost an insurance case he said. He said he was pressured in various ways, with insinuations etc, to do things which he knew were unethical but couldn't be proven clearly,and they were being done by everyone involved on both sides of the question, so it was either go along with the flow or quit a good paying career. He recommended that if you have an injury from an accident, always sue and if you choose a Jewish lawyer, you are almost guaranteed to win a big settlement!" One of the techniques of payoff is when there is a large insurance settlement, the lawyer will, without the permission of his client, assign the settlement monies to an "Annuity Trust" instead of giving the money to his client directly. This is favorable to the other side and also enables the unscrupulous lawyer to collect a hefty commission for putting the money in the Trust.

What is the average speed of passenger airplane?

The way this is worded is tricky so I'm going to give you the answer to the question I think you meant to ask. The average speed of a large commercial jet airliner is about 500 mph. A "passenger plane" can be anything from an ultralight on up. If you go from ultralights to jets and everything in between that has more than one seat, your average speed drops drastically.

What type of engine does a 1969 Dodge Charger General Lee have?

In the show, it is never stated what engine the General has but here are some facts so you can make up your own mind. The best look you get at "the" engine in the General Lee is in the episode "Happy Birthday General Lee". In this episode you see a big block Mopar engine on an engine stand but it's not a detailed enough shot to tell if it is a B or RB block. So in theory, that engine could be any Chrysler big block, including the 350 (YES! Chrysler did build a 350), 361, 383, 400, 413, 426 (wedge not Hemi) or 440. In reality, the only B and RB engines found naturally in a '69 Charger were the 383, 440 and Hemi. So you can safely narrow that engine on the stand down to a 383 or 440. A little more reality rears its ugly head and we find out that the engine on the stand was a seized motor that they painted up for that shot and was not actually put into a General. So what engine did "the" General have in it? The close-up car, the car you were "supposed" to see when the hood was up (although you see the hood opened on many non-close-up cars with various engines), has a 383 in it. Of the surviving cars, the vast majority have 383s but a couple have 318s and 440s. So again, if you have to pick a "the" engine, I'd go with the 383 in the close-up car.

On the cars that went up on 2 wheels it had a 315 because it was lite. The close up cars had a 318 and the cars they did the jumps with had the 440 because the stunt men like the power.

I always figured it was the 426 hemi or 440.

How much does a Boeing truck driver make The heavy and or combination truck driver?

Heavy haul or Specialized Trucking salary varies a lot. If you own a truck and get paid by the load I give an idea by basing it on a company I work for. On our load board you would see loads that pay the truck anywhere from a little over 3,000 up t0 18,000 dollars. That's permit load. Meaning the load is either wide long or heavier than what is considered normal and require permits. In my company a driver start out as an H2 driver. And goes up to the highest. If a driver for example does 10 H2 load he goes up to the next level and vice versa. Some of the really big loads that require crew from the power line company and vice versa just so the truck can pass through can get paid up to 200,000 dollars per load!!. Trucking is probably the only job in which salary can vary a whole lot. Some truck drivers barely survive some own big homes and make a lot of money. Heavy haul and specialized truckers probably top the money maker in the industry along with ice road truckers who make about 120 gran in a single season which is three months.

What plane can hover?

Well there were many trial to make an aeroplane which can hover. Although some aeroplanes can hover for short durations but unfortunately we are still unable to make an aeroplane hover with much efficiency. the examples of few hovering capable aeroplanes are Lockheed Martin F-35 and V-22.

However, by far the most well known and successful is the British Harrier Jump Jet. It went into service in 1966 although the Hawker P1127 was a predecessor that flew in 1960. The Harrier uses thrust vectoring to allow vertical take off and landing as well as hovering at any speed and can even move backwards.

What type of aircraft were used during Vietnam to carry airmail?

Airmail to the troops was considered essential, just as it was to British troops in mini-wars and hot spots around the world. It came by whatever means were expedient, -supply transport, bomber, jet fighter or helicopter. Once in Oman, I remember the mailbag arriving in a converted drop tank on a Royal Navy Gannet sub-hunter, - smelly, but still beautiful.

What is the octane of jet fuel?

Jet fuel is kerosene, about the same stuff as diesel. Octane is a number that measures anti-knock properties of fuels. Diesels knock--that's how they work. Jets don't have enough compression to knock. Jet and diesel fuels would measure typically 15-25 "octane anti-knock". Sort of....
