Citation departs on Memphis Taxiway.

I was just perusing some NTSB prelims and came across this. … 1568&key=1

I haven’t heard a word of this in the news. I was just looking over the taxi diagram and there are two parallel taxiways before reaching the runway.

Flight: … Z/KMEM/5T6

Diagram: … RT+DIAGRAM

Anyone catch the irony of the name of the company the Citation is registered to? Lucky Duck?

Not that it matter that much, but I wonder why they were using 36L. You can’t get much further from the FBO’s then that.

Anyone know how to retrieve old METAR’s?

Unless my eyes are really failing me that appears to be a pic of N341EP, despite the caption.

Did a double check, there has never been a CJ registered N341EP, and N341EP is not currently on any aircraft.

However I can see what you mean. I’ll assume the angle of the rudder is playing a part in what we see, or don’t see.

On another note, I recall years ago, a Federal Express Falcon 20DC cleared for takeoff in Warwick Rhode Island in fog. It attempted to depart via a taxi way, however wasn’t as fortunate as Mr. Lucky Duck!

I recall all survived, but collided with a couple of airliners, possibly a Allegheny DC-9, and an American B727. I’ll see if I can find the details.

I blew the pic WAY up and it appears that either the paint has chipped off on a portion of the “2” or there is a massive bunch of bird poop on it!

Check out

Max is 1440 for last number of observations. Change airport code naturally :smiley:


I was on that flight KMEM-KEVV about 4 months ago check out my page for hte strip i got from my bag lol

That’s a really obnoxious Web page! :unamused:

Extremely so!

  • Absolutely hate pages that automatically spew forth noise (music, talking, anything)
  • Nice background pictures but you really need to lighten it up some so your viewers can read the text
    -Don’t like pages that start off playing music or has talking or whatever. You should make this an option.
  • Did I mention that I don’t like pages that automatically spew forth noise?

well im 17

Well duh, we could tell! :smiley: (and read)

It is after all on your myspace page.

Pay no attention to them, they’re just jealous. They couldn’t have created a page like that when they were 17 because Al Gore hadn’t invented the internet yet by then.

rim shot

WHO IS AL GORE?!?!?! :smiley: :arrow_right:

That was a Nike “swoosh” from outside the line (never touched the rim)… :unamused:

Hey - I think those southwestairpilots will like that hat you got there - I sure do but hope they don’t kick you off the plane - course you probably wouldn’t bring them any publicity since you were not neked!!! They/SW seem to have a thing about showing flesh (in the pit or in the seat)…not that I think you should be neked on a plane but what a way to get publicity (must be takin lessons from Hollydeadwood). 8)

Well i can tell there is a resemblance the older folks are saying they hate my page and they newere ones are saying that they like it 8)

I can take that statement two ways - newer to this site or older in age - I’m both & I don’t dislike your page - just jumped over there for a second - long enough to see your sombrero/hat & hear the music the others were typing about. BUT - if you visit myspace very much - the music is an expected. I have a myspace also: I have music also - the words are great to the song… :slight_smile: Be sure to hit on the music if it doesn’t open up playing…

My site is really “plane” not much to look at - don’t spend much time on developing the site. :blush:

BTW: You have already changed your pic - no hat??? :cry: 8)

Oh also - there is a great flying video on my site also - be sure to watch it. You may have to scroll down a bit to get to it - great music & words to the flying also… :arrow_right:
