Re: Turbine Inlet Temperature and in-flight malfunctions

Almost all is more than most by how much?
Enough that we parlour talkers need to exercise a little bit of caution when we trash pilots and airlines for their screw ups.

Re: Turbine Inlet Temperature and in-flight malfunctions

2. I actually have a good bit of trust in the procedures and guy's like Flyboy to make good decisions on when to land now, or to proceed on. (see footnote for a side story) Yes, almost all of them, almost all of the time. Then you have those incredibly rare British Airways instances. Fixed. 8-)

Turbine Inlet Temperature and in-flight malfunctions

http://avherald.com/h?article=4c7467ca&opt=0 Ok, I'll concede that belching flames and declaring an emergency and then saying, "Meh, we'll just continue", is mildly interesting. Please discuss if so-moved. And I don't really care about every last temperature and procedure and decision... I'll just s...

Re: MSFS is back

I met an Austral captain in the FSX presentation in Microsoft Argentina (they invited me because I had bought and registered a legal copy of FS9, something not very useful in Argentina) and he told me that he used the Mad Dog add-on (today FlyTheMadDog) before each recurrent training/check-ride to ...

Re: MSFS is back

Re "feel"... am I the only one who finds MSFS much harder to fly smoothly and accurately than an actual airplane? Flying an actual 172 (disclaimer: I have not done same since about 10 years ago) not that I'd actually do it but I always had the sense in reasonably calm weather and with the plane tri...

POPCORN: Well, I think we have a technology problem here: I have an old, non ELAC (or GLAC) equipped gas stovetop. Temperature gauges are MELed, so I set the burner to a known setting, use a known thickness pot and carefully monitor the situation (i.e.: hear the popping and watch for smoke or burnt...

Awesome, historic, round-motor, oil-burning, smoke-belching, computer-free, loud airplanes taxiing in an event commemorating USA domination in WWII. Nice
Fixed.

I got some paint I need to watch dry.
I always appreciate the razz and yes the aerospace system operates in a boring efficiency in spite of weather, but it’s still a wonder and exciting to watch the proceedings and adjustments as y’all defy did dieding.

...and a dude GOING to Houston went 80 miles North...did a 180....while NW departures are going....NW.

Wind now 200...that still favors a 120 landing direction

Re: Strange and Stormy night at STL

The big storms are past and things are a bit calmer...but they are still landing on 29 where you end up WAY away from the guts of the airport... I am still am amazed at some of the crazy vectoring that goes on with Center mostly....Someone from the Southeast flew 100 miles past the airport along the...

Re: Strange and Stormy night at STL

The Sotheast Hold is falling apart...they are making a few zig zags towards the north to avoid weather, but then sneaking in kind of close to the marker (I guess).

There's another wad on the SE arrival and collection of guys on the north side...

Someone just called in on the ILS 29....perhaps it's begun.

Re: Strange and Stormy night at STL

Now, as best as I can tell, a few landings are taking place on 24....

They are starting to direct people to the North side of the line of storms through some lighter areas...not sure there's a lot of landings yet.

The tower is issuing takeoff clearances as fast as they can on 30L

Re: Strange and Stormy night at STL

I'm now hearing the occasional takeoff... Another interesting deal is that most of the flights are "trapped" South of the line of storms and the storms are just about to pass to the South of the airport. It will be fun to watch how they work them through the line and then in to land. The tower is ta...

I get outside to watch a 737 go around (I think we live about a mile outside the marker). Shortly after, another 737 comes along and goes all the way followed by a Weber C-206. The clouds are nasty gust-fronty going different directions and lots of little spin here and there. The original Southwest ...

Big line of storms coming in...but, several minutes before they arrived, it seemed most planes were landing on 29 and most departures on 30L. (It would appear 30R is closed. (WTF on landing on 29 and departing from 30L As the storms approached, the tower was giving lots of wind shear warnings- all f...
