 ::thinking:: I was under the impression that the A310 was certified for aerobatics so where's the deal?  ::banghead:: ::banghead:: ::banghead:: ::banghead:: ::banghead:: ::banghead:: ::banghead:: ::banghead:: ::banghead:: ::banghead:: ::banghead:: ::banghead::

An MD-88 literally drug a wingtip 1000' down the dirt beside a runway here in Fairbanks last year.    Dragging a wingtip is just a degree or two from balling up an airplane!

I wonder if the passengers ever realized how close they came.
