3 APR 2006, Dover AFB, Maryland. C-5B crashed on landing. 84-0059 crashed following a cockpit indication that a thrust reverser was not locked. The C-5B assigned to the 436th Airlift Wing and flown by a reserve crew from the 709th Airlift Squadron, 512th Airlift Wing crashed about 2,000 ft (610 m) short of the runway while attempting a heavyweight emergency landing at Dover Air Force Base, Delaware. The aircraft had taken off from Dover 21 minutes earlier and reported an in-flight emergency 10 minutes into the flight. All 17 people aboard survived, but two received serious injuries. The Air Force's accident investigation board report concluded the cause to be human error, most notably the crew had been manipulating the throttle of the (dead) number two engine as if it was still running while keeping the (live) number three engine at idle.

    Yes, the equivalent of stomping on the wrong peddal in a car...there is little room for such error when falling out of the sky.

    You will need enough money and finances to get $300,000 worth of insurance.

    There are tons of plumbers to choose from; nonetheless, choosing the best one to carry out the best job might be a little difficult. It is essential to fix any complicated issue you need to call a professional plumber and if it is for small plumbing problems like cleaning a clogged sink, repair leaky faucets you can call a plumbing technician.

    The video game player moves through all the different levels of the game completing each goal.

    Each guide covers at least five options for your gift giving needs. Sure, I love the Nolan-directed Batman movies and the animated Justice League show but when it comes to the actual characters, my heart belongs in the Marvel Universe.

    However, the hectic life schedule doesn't allow people to follow a proper schedule. This is good for cardio and actually is great on the body mechanics. Although the one paragraph they provide doesn't seem like it says it all, what it does say is that 'Union members earn better wages and benefits than workers who aren't union members.

    Moderate social interest offenders would benefit from educational and vocational opportunities, and group therapy to discourage recidivism.
    We would walk by, wait for them to make the faces, then bust out laughing and point at them. Emotional Intelligence has its root in the concept of 'Social Intelligence' first identified by Thorndike in 1920.

    Garlic Garlic contains a super-antioxidant, allicin, that prevents the breakdown of the cells in the body that causes aging.

    At this point the cultured-milk must be strained so as to separate & retrieve our keffir granules. In a blog, I read, the author said, he found them at Trader Joes.
