Don't you just hate when you wind up in a store with people who are in a socioeconomic class that is pretty obviously about two levels lower than your own?

autopilot maintains course and altitude so it may have flown for a loooooong way before finally crashing.

does it maintain course or heading?

i mean dumb autopilot from forever ago could do heading and air speed. the f-35 can probably do both, but most likely defaults to course over ground because that's the most useful.

As described to ABC News, the aide, Molly Michael, told investigators that -- more than once -- she received requests or taskings from Trump that were written on the back of notecards, and she later recognized those notecards as sensitive White House materials -- with visible classification markings -- used to brief Trump while he was still in office about phone calls with foreign leaders or other international-related matters.

Ö

Sources said that after Trump heard the FBI wanted to interview Michael last year, Trump allegedly told her, "You don't know anything about the boxes."

It's unclear exactly what he meant by that.

yeah okay

this may have happened in your posting haitus, but fishmech got caught being wrong about the difference between course and heading and whether or not you could determine heading with gps (you can't). they would not let it die and everyone clowned on them for quiet a while. it is now very much a running joke. so if you see a course/heading thing it's a broken fishmech meme. this was before they were permabanned for keeping a repository of goon homegroan from the 00s.

why did the pilot bail if the plane was still capable of flying a long distance

being punted out in a rocket seat with a 20%+ chance of spinal fractures, then falling to earth with only some fabric that may or may not deploy is still safer than being in an f35
