I have created a new program to decode AAL77's raw FDR file.
I am making it available for download along with it's source code and some output files from the program.
You can read more about it here
It decodes almost 4 more seconds of data than what appears at the end of the NTSB CSV file.
I welcome suggestions for any more parameters you would like decoded or any other features you would like added.
I will also be discussing this on the J.R.E.F. "AA77 FDR Data, Explained" thread as well as here.
mod edit: Although Pilots For 9/11 Truth do not have any reason to believe the above program is offered for any nefarious purpose, we felt the responsibility to add this disclaimer. Pilots For 9/11 Truth do not vouch for nor is responsible for any of the data provided above by Warren. Nor can we guarantee his program is free of malicious code. Download at your own risk.

This was too good to pass up and gives new meaning to the "Treat" in ReTreat".
"Nobody, but nobody uses a barometric altimeter in lieu of a radar altimeter below 500' AGL. This includes any military or the airlines." - Reheat, Oct 22, 2009, Yankees 6 - Angels 4, Bottom of the 7th, 2 men on, 2 Out.
This quote was almost as delicious as watching the Yankees take the lead in one inning down by 4... (IMG:http://pilotsfor911truth.org/forum/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)
Clearly Reheat doesn't know the difference between DA and DH on a Cat I ILS which is based on Barometric Altitude call-outs below "500 AGL" at every airline in the entire world.
Reheat, how can "nobody, but nobody" shoot an approach to 200 and 1/2 if a Radar Altimeter is not required equipment for IFR/IMC? Clearly ReTreat doesn't even know the required equipment for IFR flight.
Here ReTreat, perhaps you should sign up for a basic course at American Flyers.
(page 6, just a simple search i did because the game is more important at this point... (IMG:http://pilotsfor911truth.org/forum/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) )
What a treat from ReTreat as this once again proves why ReTreat will never post his name to verify his claimed credentials, nor debate pilots with real credentials. (IMG:http://pilotsfor911truth.org/forum/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)
And yes, I have it screenshot saved. This is one of his best. If Reheat is really a pilot, he must be in another one of his drunken stupors. You should have heard him when he got the nads to call in to one of the radio shows I was on. He even gave the name "Reheat" as the caller. Well, i must give him one thing, at least he respects his own name enough to not associate it with his absurd claims.
Edit to add: I see 'ReTreat', true to form as his moniker suggests, has 'retreated' on his above statements after reading this post, and added this edit to his post...
"ETA: a correction here. We used to shoot Ground Controlled (GCA) approaches to 200' agl 1/4 mile visibility without a radar altimeter. What I said above applies to aircraft with a Radar altimeter. On Precision approaches the Decision Height is based on a barometric altimeter, but you can rest assurred [sic] that the pilot has one eyeball on the radar altimeter (if one is available).
Lets break this down...
"What I said above applies to aircraft with a Radar altimeter...."
Actually, what ReTreat said above is...
"Nobody, but nobody uses a barometric altimeter in lieu of a radar altimeter below 500' AGL."
Nowhere does ReTreat mention it is only for aircraft which have Radar Altimeters.
Secondly, if ReTreat actually flew an approach "below 500 AGL" all call-outs are based on Baro Altimeter and there is never "one eye on the RadAlt" during such an approach. Baro Alt is ultimate authority. Why would a pilot increase their work-load with 'one eye' on RadAlt attempting to interpret approach clearway obstacles/slope vs Baro Alt on a Cat I approach? They wouldn't. They don't. I don't. I never have. I never seen anyone do it. It has never been taught as such, and I have never taught it as such. Matter of fact, it is discouraged to look at RadAlt on a Cat I ILS. If Reheat were a real pilot, he would know this.
Third, Reheat still refers to Cat I ILS as DH instead of DA. Pilots, you know.. (IMG:http://pilotsfor911truth.org/forum/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)
ReTreat, you not only hold true to your moniker of retreating on your original claims by adding an edit after you read my above post, but you continue to give real pilots a treat based on your absurd claims.Thank you!
(for those who wish to pay attention to detail, note time of post and time of edit for my post and ReTreat. Be sure to adjust for forum time zone when clicking main page. If still confused, feel free to email me for the original post file before ReTreat retreated on his claims)
ReTreat, if it makes you feel better in your drunken stupor, you could chastise me for the Yankee's losing tonight, as that is pretty much all you have left in your arsenal.... lol.. such a move would be known as a "Beachnut"...
