NASA's F/A-18A Mission Support Chase plane! This is one of three that are based at the Armstrong Flight Research Center in Edwards AFB. It was a treat to be up close and personal with her at Edwards' 70th Anniversary of Supersonic Flight event!
It’s true - a big swell is predicted this weekend. +50 foot faces expected at Pe’ahi. Stay tuned!

🛩️Although the takeoff and climb is one continuous maneuver, it will be divided into three separate steps for purposes of explanation:
✳️Initial climb after becoming airborne.
🛩️Takeoff roll (ground roll) is the portion of the takeoff procedure during which the airplane is accelerated from a standstill to an airspeed that provides sufficient lift for it to become airborne.
🛩️Lift-off is when the wings are lifting the weight of the airplane off the surface. In most airplanes, this is the result of the pilot rotating the nose up to increase the angle of attack (AOA).
🛩️The initial climb begins when the airplane leaves the surface and a climb pitch attitude has been established.
🛩️Normally, it is considered complete when the airplane has reached a safe maneuvering altitude or an en route climb has been established
🛩️Before going to the airplane, the pilot should check the POH/AFM performance charts to determine the predicted performance and decide if the airplane is capable of a safe takeoff and climb for the conditions and location. High density altitudes reduce engine and propeller performance, increase takeoff rolls and decrease climb performance.

Back in June of last year a Singapore Airlines made a rare visit to Perth whilst operating a service from Singapore, Changi to Melbourne. This was to facilitate a medical emergency on board the aircraft.

Today marks my 2nd anniversary at Delta and it’s really been an amazing journey so far. Two years ago I was presented my Wings by Captain Steve Dickson former Senior Vice-President of Flight Operations at Delta Air Lines. This is a moment I’ll never ever forget. Just look at Momma 😭🙌🏾❤️ #DeltaProud#MommaWeMadeIt#KeepClimbing
