They are very safe aircrafts, it's the pilots behind them that can make them dangerous. I was lucky enough to have flown in a 414 when I was a kid nearly every weekend. Now I have 40 hours logged in one. It is like calling a Corolla unsafe because they let tires go bald and have a 12 old child driving it down the… » 9/19/14 5:24pm 9/19/14 5:24pm

My roommate had an equally shitty day a couple of weeks ago. Long story short: he slows with heavy traffic to 35 mph, Mustang came up from behind at 60+ mph, Mustang goes under his Tacoma, Tacoma flips onto roof, topper shears, Tacoma flip into ditch back on it wheels, roommate walks away with 3 small cuts.

I had to sacrifice some space in my extended cab to put my 2X12" (I was in high school and thought I needed it..) in. What I did was make a box that was downward firing, and the center of my box is a storage unit. Sounds amazing and takes up a ton of space. It looks really nice after I had it padded and wrapped in… » 12/24/13 1:04am 12/24/13 1:04am
