White smoke is not unusual after an event like that Z. It’s just residual coolant burning off of the exhaust manifold. It should go away after a few miles of driving once the engine comes to temperature if it hasn’t already

Problem is most of my coaches are NYC and GTW 1954 scheme and I think the geeps when delivered were equipped with steam heaters if I’m not mistaken
@ GTW Dude « Mon 4:30:20 pm »
I was thinking of buying 2 of these 3 > CN 1954 Scheme > CN 1960 Wet Noodle scheme > NYC Steam heater
@ GTW Dude « Mon 4:29:26 pm »
Should I pull the trigger on a couple Rapido Steam heater cars with sound?
@ AARR « Mon 4:08:25 pm »
Sounds good ~Z~ (pun intended :) )
@ ~Z~ « Mon 3:32:39 pm »
also walked to the car repair shop, picked up the vehicle today. they say it was just a blown radiator hose. drove around a bit, temp staying where it should. Had a little white smoke come out when i parked it...think it’s just leftover fluid that basically went everywhere in the engine bay. gonna try driving it around a good amount tomorrow and Wed and make sure it’s not still having issues.
@ ~Z~ « Mon 3:31:00 pm »
have some nice settings on them that seem like they’ll help in noisy areas to be able to hear the person in front of me speaking.
@ ~Z~ « Mon 3:30:32 pm »
picked up my new hearing aids today. they thought we can do without ear molds, but based on the audio feedback I can hear, I think I’ll get a set of molds done. had to on my current pair, so assumed I’d need to on this set as well.
@ Jetlink « Mon 2:07:00 pm »
I like teaching. Twas rewarding.
@ Jetlink « Mon 2:05:21 pm »
but yeah.
@ Jetlink « Mon 2:04:35 pm »
Not by air :)

Unfortunately you’re a tad far away

Usually insurance isn’t an issue for someone like me. Just has to be a policy in place.
@ Jetlink « Mon 2:03:23 pm »
Probably. If you had an aircraft we could use or access to an aircraft we could use. With the appropriate insurance coverages.
@ David Collins « Mon 2:02:14 pm »
Would you be willing for me :lol:
@ Jetlink « Mon 2:02:08 pm »
You were an authorized instructor so long as you were an employee and completed their internal qualification program for instructors. Which was required even if you were already and instructor.
@ Jetlink « Mon 2:00:50 pm »
Really just for GA flying only. When I was an instructor at my former airline you didn’t need it either.
@ Jetlink « Mon 2:00:06 pm »
But if I ever want to teach my kids or a friend and they want it to count for a cert or rating I would need it.
@ David Collins « Mon 1:59:22 pm »
Ah
@ Jetlink « Mon 1:58:53 pm »
Nope
@ David Collins « Mon 1:57:03 pm »
Do you have to maintain a CFI rating in order to remain as FO or Captain or whatever position you hold?
@ Jetlink « Mon 1:53:22 pm »
But much easier to keep it than get it re instated if it ever lapses.
@ Jetlink « Mon 1:53:03 pm »
To keep a cert. I don’t even really use.
@ Jetlink « Mon 1:52:51 pm »
I friggen hate that process. Every two years.
@ Jetlink « Mon 1:52:24 pm »
Bleh, Just submitted all of my paperwork for my flight instructor certificate renewal.
@ Jetlink « Mon 1:50:29 pm »
I would guess you are correct.

I’m guessing both are factors
@ Jetlink « Mon 1:48:11 pm »
I’m guilty too today. Was driving too fast. I started slowing for a left turn ahead. Got to the intersection and the anti skid cycled. Was still moving too fast with the anti skid pulsing. Decided not to try the turn. Had to slow down and turn around about 1/4 mile later at the next intersection. Shouldn’t have been going that fast, and I should have given myself more distance to stop. I think if I would have tried the turn I may have skidded off the road at the corner.
@ Jetlink « Mon 1:46:45 pm »
Bad roads? Or not planning appropriate stopping margins for marginal conditions?
@ David Collins « Mon 12:47:49 pm »
So the roads are VERY bad
@ David Collins « Mon 12:47:42 pm »
And one of my friends was riding from the school farm back to the high school and the bus slid through two intersections
@ David Collins « Mon 12:47:19 pm »
It will probably change since everyone I know in my school are terrible drivers
@ David Collins « Mon 12:47:03 pm »
But they’re saying at least 2:30
@ David Collins « Mon 12:46:26 pm »
2:50
@ kd_1014 « Mon 12:40:46 pm »

I knew it: being released at 2:30 today as of right now

I wonder if we’ll get released early
@ DaveO « Mon 10:52:44 am »
Let me rephrase that as 15 mpg. The old gasser school buses you were lucky to get about 8 mpg. Because of the constant stopping and trying to stay warm in the winter.
@ ~Z~ « Mon 10:49:42 am »
16 gallons per mile is terrible for a automobile
@ ~Z~ « Mon 10:49:23 am »
heck, even my jetski got 0.25 gallons per mile generally.
@ ~Z~ « Mon 10:48:44 am »
i get approx 0.04 gallons per mile. Over a gallon per mile is terrible.

I get 15. Thinking my driving habits have something to do with it ;‑)

@ David Collins « Mon 10:42:05 am »
It’s got the 6.4 since it was built in 2010
@ David Collins « Mon 10:41:50 am »
With no trailer, 16-18
@ DaveO « Mon 10:35:57 am »
F450, how many gallons per mile does it get?
@ Chip « Mon 10:24:32 am »
We just built 3
@ ~Z~ « Mon 8:36:14 am »
Only Ford that looks interesting is the Ford F-150 Lightning electric truck
@ David Collins « Mon 8:32:41 am »
I’ll gladly take an F450 :lol:
@ Michael « Mon 8:26:34 am »
That is pricey. I’ll probably just get 2.
@ Chip « Mon 7:36:27 am »
Warthog was a much better name for it
@ DaveO « Mon 6:56:24 am »
The new Ford Bronco Raptor. List price $68,500. They’re targeting a demanding crowd. With recent previous failures to deliver, Ford is walking a tightrope with this IMHO.
