Ebola patient (nurse) has arrived at KFDK and is enroute to NIH in Brthesda. Can somebody pull up and edit the clip? Medflight 1 wishes the patient well on CTAF on arrival.

Okay, make that the interior panels started buckle due to an air vent blowing.  Still wondering if there is audio.

Does anyone have any audio on this?  I just heard about it on the news.

I got into virtual airlines, listening to the virtual airline news flash.  I realized that my destiny lay in Georgia, so to enjoy the Georgia life, I started flying on FS2002 and eventually FSX.  In 2006, I moved to Georgia, landing a dream job that well, wasn't as dreamy as I imagined, but still exciting sometimes. 

Liveatc.net is great, because I can enjoy it with LiveATC chatter and my new VRInsight MCP panel.  Finally a good radio panel for my PMDG plane!  Once I figure out the program, I'll be enjoying FS more.

Wow they need an English requirement to even get in the cockpit I say. Horrible.

Not a great audio file as the radio kept switching between frequencies during the incident.  However, it's something that happened at Victoria, which is pretty rare (thankfully).   I've edited the file to only those involved in the incident.

From the CADORS...

UPDATE: TSB Report#A14P0168: A US-registered Nieuport 11 replica (Circa Reproductions Kit), suffered a partial engine power loss immediately after take-off from Victoria International Airport (CYYJ). The aircraft was unable to climb and did a low-level circuit to return for landing. The engine (a VW 1830 cc - Great Plains conversion) was found to have one spark plug with the electrode gap completely shut. The occurrence aircraft's engine was equipped with a single spark plug per cylinder.

Turns out the aircraft was a kit built aircraft and the 70 year old pilot didn't survive the crash
Depending on the news report he lost engine power or stalled (how they know I don't know).
Not sure if 'kit built' translates to an ultralight or not.

If he was trying to ditch it he was only 50 metres short of a long beach strip unfortunately which may have had a better outcome
Thankfully he missed the large Safeway's and busy car park by about the same amount.

I'll have to try that. I might even have enough wire laying around already. Hopefully it will improve the reception. For $5, it's worth a shot.

Hi John, yes it's possible to build your own antenna.  I copied this information from another thread:

A quarter wave ground plane antenna is easy to make for less than $5.  You'll need a soldering iron and solder too.
Shopping list:
11 ft of 12awg solid wire(not stranded)
SO239 connector (Radio Shack No. 278-201)

Cut the wire into equal lengths of 23 inches
Insert one wire into center of the SO239 connector and solder it into place.
Make a loop in the other four wires and loop them into the four holes in the SO239 connector
Solder the four wires in place perpendicular to the center conductor wire.
NOTE: This will be about 70 Ohms.  Ideally you want 50 Ohms.  To get 50 Ohms you need to be at 135 deg from the center radial
Make a loop in the center conductor wire so you can hang it by string or rope. 

This is a great attic antenna and it works very well.  The 50 Ohm version is what I use for the KHSV feed.

Link to how to build it but use my wire lengths:


I never tried this myself but I thought I'd pass it along.  I hope this helps...
