Is FLÜGGÅӘNKб€ČHIŒßØLĮÊN still your safe word?Such as the meat inspection law that used to be on the books . . . das Rindfleischetikettierungsüberwachungsaufgabenübertragungsgesetz.
As opposed to over here, where our marketing people seem to like it better if you make up words that aren't even words but just sound nice. Avaya . . . Verizon . . . Accenture . . .
We didn’t beat them twice in the great wars of the 20th Century just to learn to spell their meaningless words correctly!What's funny, aside from watching @Griz882 completely butcher the spelling, is that Fahrvergnügen was not really a word until a bunch of marketing people in Volkswagen came up with it. I mean it basically means "joy (or pleasure) from driving," and it makes grammatical sense, but it's about as much of an actual word as "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" was before Mary Poppins.
Tough day yesterday - one of my club aircraft suffered an engine failure resulting in an off field landing in a cornfield 1.5 miles from home field resulting in substantial damage to the aircraft (total loss). The pilot, an experienced CFI colleague and his pilot passenger walked away without a scratch. The engine failure occurred at 3000' MSL in IMC, and the aircraft broke out to visual conditions only at 600' AGL
The engine failure began after departure from a nearby airport where the aircraft was undergoing avionics upgrades and removal of the engine driven vacuum system (dual G5 electronic flight instruments replaced the vacuum powered AI and DC powered HSI). The engine operated normally after takeoff and shortly after cruise, engine oil pressure went to zero followed by caution/warning. Engine made partial power as the crew declared the emergency and attempted to turn towards the airport. Shortly after that the engine lost all power, the pilot set best glide...
You can see the pics below. Aircraft touchdown around 70 KIAS, and impacted two trees, destroying both wings, and emptying the fuel tanks. The cabin held together -and the landing gear was not compromised.
NTSB and FAA are coming tomorrow to do the engine inspection. FAA released the aircraft to me yesterday and local news covered the accident.
Amazing bit of airmanship.
