#20 Taking a picture of a guy taking a picture? Hmm…that looks legit!
What's going on in #4?
The prop stopped.
I guess…inconclusive at best..
No, it's not inconclusive, you're just a little slow on the uptake. Nothing to be ashamed of
The plane is off the ground by quite a bit, but the propeller is stationary. Unless that guy has the highest speed camera ever, that engine is not working.
Normally that propeller thingy is spinning a bit faster…
The propeller is not moving
Iranian dictator training to be a cosmonaut…FAIL
The prop is feathered, therefore nonoperational
The prop is stopped and feathered, probably a training flight (shutting down an engine is part of multi engine training) considering if it were a real emergency you wouldn't be concerned with taking a picture.
Mehh. You could still fly with 1 engine.
The feathered is propped…
Nothing is wrong, they get to go skydiving!
Actually, if you take a picture of a fully functioning prop, it comes out like that. optical illusion. Something to do with the rate of revolutions and shit. I took a pic flying in a buddies cessna and it tripped me out!
Nope. As mentioned above the prop is feathered meaing it's turned parallel to the airflow to reduce drag on that side. The upshot is that that engine is not producing power. How stressful that is depends on whether this is training or an unplanned event, if the one on the other side is producing power, and how proficient the pilot is at single engine operations. not a big deal at curise which this appears to be but somewhat more interesting at lower speeds, like landing. At least they have decent weather for it.
Actually, nothing is wrong. The picture was taken with a digital camera.
Even if the engine shut off, it's not like the plane is going to instantly fall from the sky. A plane with a blown engine can usually just glide to a safe landing.
Very true for most aircraft, except for F-16's. We used to call those things lawn darts. If their one engine went out, they'd usually arch over and go straight down…
I knew a case of a C-130 (four engines) losing two engines on the same side of the plane(!) and still being able to make it to an airfield.
A c-130 can actually maintain altitude with a single engine operational.
Also, I once glided in to Bakersfield airport in a Cessna 172 due to carb over the grapevine. That carb heater still owes me a pair of pants.
I thought it had to be photo-shopped. That would be so eff'd
#11 That's what you get for being stupid.
He ended up winning Americas funniest videos.
Of course I doubt that 10,000 covered the damage to the car and the car wash place.
Is a complete retard and gets rewarded……. What's this world come to
Okay, I'll say it: Not surprising coming from an SUV driver…
I am a bit surprised it was a dude, though.Sorry, bros, but your soccer Mom wives (and guys like this guy) have given you a terrible rep.
Let the SUV defenders' onslaught begin!
he had one job to do. stay in the damn vehicle.
That just pissed me off. I hate stupid people.
Seeing that they are in the air and the prop is not turing I would say they lost an engine
actually, the engine is still there, you can see it right there in the photo. so it's not lost I don't think. ps my ex-gfs name was Jess, she was dumb too, so don't feel bad.
#1 Judging by what I can see from this picture, you may want to think about a few of your life choices. Unless your in college, in which case, it looks like just another day to me.
You're * in college. Which one did you go to ?
The one where they taught us not to freak out over the little things, such as internet Grammar Nazis and auto correct on our phones.
Here, I'll try again anyway just to make you happy:
You're an ass.
That's okay. Pretend that not using proper grammar is a "little thing", but it makes you look really stupid.
On a fucking internet comment thread, from my mobile phone?
Who am I? Oh you don't know? Neither does anyone else…
You are awesome.
actually.. when you "quote" something, proper grammar says to place your punctuation such as your comma, inside your parenthesis. like this.. "who gives a shit about grammar, really?"
*you're – as in "you are in college." Stay in school.
I love Collage!
you probably dropped it because you had your camera out to share every moment with the world
Why are you judging this guys choices?
Then you get angry when someone else judges your spelling?
Wake up, Epitomizer.
#1 What the f*ckin f*ck!
Can someone explain #4?
One of the engines stopped.
Propeller should be spinning
Theres…someone on the wing!… SOME…THING!
It means you have to show tits.
Why so many thumbs down for a question?
#2 Must belong to the owner of Carnival Cruise Lines.
Should change the name to Circus Cruise Lines cause they're a bunch of fucking clowns
#4 It's ok, they have a second.
that was the second one
#16 a little pre-mature buddy
Reminds me of a young me.
hahaha, made me laugh. ps I think he's running from that missile that's probably not supposed to be sitting on the runway
the hornet just took a trap. the winder was not loaded properly, and slid off the rails when the aircraft was arrested. i'd also refrain from calling it a "runway"
oh, my hero….yousosmart..
sorry corporal faggit
No shit. Way to go, dumb ass.
I always think of this when people write "What. An. Idiot.": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0HV1JzxhDcY
#5 what my toaster does on its "warm" setting
Looks like the first pizza I baked by myself….
#1 Who the fuck holds a camera while eating spaghetti, dude was asking for shit.
#11 I love that he sticks his hand out in a "what the hell" kinda fashion. Probably demanded the Car Wash pay for his door afterwards too.
#16 Some guys can't help shooting too quickly.
#15 BMW – Bring Mechanic With!!
#11 Womp womp.
#5 how many people have cooked a pizza drunk after the bar and woken up to this?
all too familiar with that situation
Haha damn I've done that twice after the bars. took forever to get the smell out of my house
I'm aware of the obsession with posting everything that happens in your life but, the first thing you do when something like #1 happens is take a picture of it??? More than attention, you need help, my friend…
He was probably on the phone, thats why he dropped the shit in the first place. I eat pasta in the nude
#13 I facking hate cats! kill them all! Unleash the houndsssssssss!
You better not let Adolf Kitler and his Pawzi regime hear you say such things.
I facking love cats! Kiss them all! Unleash the hounds! I love dogs too! In fact most animals are way cool now that I think about it. Unleash them all! (except mosquitoes, fack them)
#4 the prop didnt stop, ive taken a picture of a helicopter with my phone before that showed the blades completely normal. It doesnt take a great camera to capture that photo.
There is no motion blur at all. It's far more likely that they shut the port engine down and feathered the prop. It's a common procedure when earning a multi-engine rating for a pilot. The starboard engine is likely still running, so there isn't much danger as long as they keep the speed above the minimum controllable single-engine speed.
No…it's stopped…Your dumb, go put on a helmet.
Ironic that you called someone else dumb. It's "you're" genius. Let me know how that helmet fits.
Prop is in an alignment with the engine cowling, thus "feathered" so that it does not create drag on the aircraft. Therefore stopped. If it was running, it would tear the engine to pieces due to the rpms and no wind resistance to the prop. Working propellers are at some degree perpendicular to the engine so that they cut through the air and compress it behind then giving you flight.
The prop is feathered. That engine is shut down. Completely normal to see that in multi-engine flight training.
#1 So you got wasted…
#17 Roll with it and have some fun!
Imagine that uneven load during the spin cycle in your washer…….multiplied by, like, a thousand….
#3 Stared at this for a bit too long
i did the same thing. its too funny to look away
not gonna lie, I stared and laughed a bit too long as well
