WTF?! Colors and Spinning

Mike, are you trying to make us HAPPY for the new version?

The odd colors and spinning pages are ANNOYING.

Spinning


Hi Terry,
Ya, first thought was some computer virus thingy. So . . . cute but extremely annoying.

Ok Mike . . . you can turn off the spinning deal now<g>.

Regards,
Tom Charlton

If this happens again:

Retard throttle to idle ...
Ailerons neutral. ...
Full opposite rudder. ...
Forward elevator ...

(Maybe a real flight instructor should chime in here?)

The spinning purple & pink place this morning was only a subtle reminder that our Sig III move is just days away. Anyone who lost their breakfast: I'll buy next time.

Throttles Idle

Rudder and Ailerons Neutral

Stick Abruptly full aft and hold

Rudder Abruptly apply full rudder opposite spin direction (opposite turn needle) and hold

Stick Abruptly full forward one turn after applying rudder

Controls Neutral after spinning stops and recover from dive

T-37 Single Spin Recovery Bold Face.

I did have to look it up, but I remembered the basic steps, just not the exact wording.

But hey, it has been almost 37 years since I flew the Tweet.

Wonder how many tries it took to work that out...;-)

No idea, but it makes sense.

Idle and neutral controls to start.

Stick full aft to ensure that you are in an upright spin (versus inverted).

Then anti spin controls to get out of the upright spin.
