I hope that everyone is having an easy or smooth week so far.  Before I give this last week's answer and this week's regularly scheduled 777 question, I would like to announce that Triple Trivia will be switched on auto-pilot for the next two Tuesdays following this week.  This is due to the holidays and also I have a lot of studying and work to do.  Suffice to say, I will be off the radar somewhat, however, I will be posting as much as I can for the time being.

Last week our question came once again from the novel: "Flight For Control"

Tuesday (Triple) Trivia
March 12th, 2013
There was a missing connection at the end of the novel to which Kat had to break open his flight bag for.  Which event occurred near the end of the novel and what is the changed combination to Bill's flight bag?

EVENT: Bill's water landing in Puget Sound.
THE DATE: of this landing was October 4th.

Hence Bill changed his sacred flight bag combination to:


So to find out the answer to the extra credit question, I highly recommend you purchase this novel on the right hand side of our website and don't forget to say "JEREMY or "JFD" SENT ME"

Sometimes we just need to put the auto brakes on life, especially mine, so that's why I decided to feature and ask this trivia question.


March 19th

With the AutoBreak Selector in the RTO position, WHEN and HOW much break pressure is applied?

Once again, answer will be given in three weeks!  Please subscribe to this site for e-mail and or Blogger updates!  You can also follow Triple Trivia on Twitter by Hashtagging #TRIPLETRIVIA and/or following

Have a great week everyone!



  1. RTO is Rejected Takeoff. Applied when a takeoff is rejected. How much pressure? I don't know, but probably maximum pressure (don't know in numbers and statistics).

  2. Yes... Say Jeremy sent you!!!

    I'm not going to answer... but does it change with the use of reverse thrust like the other settings?

    1. Wouldn't be intelligent from the manufacturer's part. What if the reverse thrust fails? Should the pilots think on selecting the other options? Then why RTO exists if the pilot can apply the other options? I don't know. Just guessing! xD

    2. Karlene, you always ask the best questions! and Alex you always bring up the best points! Karlene to answer your question, I am thinking yes, but on a break application "as needed" basis to my humble knowledge. Alex, I also think that we should bring up those points up in a few weeks when I give the answer out. I am also thinking that a video visual will be in store for the answer to this question ;)

      Thank you both!

"Understanding Air France 447"
by  Bill Palmer


Looking into the eye's of the passenger profile photos of some of those on board after having read this book, I could never begin to understand what was going through their minds during their final thoughts and moments alive on aboard Air France flight 447.

A 26 year old doctor from Ireland, an 11 year old student from the United Kingdom, 29 year old Brazi…

Flight For Sanity

"While it’s tempting to play it safe, the more we’re willing to risk, the more alive we are. In the end, what we regret most are the chances we never took."

Grand Rapids, Michigan
April, 2017

With seconds to go, I was making a mad dash down the concourse.  Of course my gate had to be the last one at the end.  The chances of me making the next flight out after to the concrete jungle were growing very slim.  In the distance, I could hear a small boy ask his mom, "Why is that man running?"  Barely hearing anything over the sounds of rushing blood and adrenaline, I heard the mother explain that I was running to catch a plane.
As I ran, I flew into my subconscious and thought about the times where I wish I had ran towards something, risking everything valuable in life because of something I believe in, instead running of away from something due to fear of how bad it would impact my life.   Risks that were worth taking, that I never…

Pure Perfection


One of those most grand moments in life is where we discover and cherish the perfection within the imperfection.

Have a great week everyone.  Take nothing for granted whether its perfect or not.
