Re: 737 Max troubles;:The latest news...

It's really not that surprising. People who always try to do the right thing will still from time to time mess up and do something wrong. Therefore it stands to reason that someone who always tries to do the wrong thing will from time to time mess up and do something right. :mrgreen: It is not so m...

Re: Ukraine 738 down in Iran

Several years ago, some poor SOB pulled the trigger and the US downed a different airliner (Flyboy's post is STILL relevant as to what else is broadcast in the area). Tragic, should not have happened, AND this time- it was not within 24 hours of active missile strikes. I think that one was worse. I...

Re: Ukraine 738 down in Iran

Some poor SOB pulled the trigger (Flyboy's KAKH post has relevance). Tragic, should not have happened, maybe the plane shouldn't have been flying. It's actually 103.2, not 102.3, the Khakh. I felt the Family Guy clip needed to include (allude to) redundant examples of hours upon hours of screaming ...

Re: Takeoff abort at JFK

There may (or may not) be an official REQUIRED call out in the cockpit that it's OK to cross an active runway.
There is in our case.
As there was at Corporate Airlines / Regionair to cross INACTIVE runways.

Eric: Linky to The Onion There was another article: "CEO admits that the addition of a self-destruct feature may have been a mistake".

4) FWIW, I detect a VERY calm voice from the departing guy...like I'm sure he was inconveinienced, but I get the impression that he didn't call upon 6000 PSI of unimited pressure to the brakes here. Do you mean "unmitigated" pressure. I think 6000psi is somewhat unlikely. Disclaimers: 1. I do not h...

Re: Ukraine 738 down in Iran

I’m getting a kick out of the political debate there. . Not very nice of me, but I just couldn’t resist Bobby’s attempt to trash LSD as a diversion. Rule #1: absolutely everything is because Trump. Trump is quite the mess. However, as I like to say, absolute statements are almost always wrong. :roll:

Takeoff abort at JFK

https://www.yahoo.com/gma/aborted-takeoff-one-america-busiest-111916385.html This is actually a good one- I'm guessing it was not a huge near-death deal, but nonetheless, fun and interesting. 1) Lots of good media hype and comments that we insiders know are inaccurate. 2) Repeated use of "near disas...

Re: Ukraine 738 down in Iran

Mechanical problem.
No. Shot down. Investigation over. Next!
Ironingly, the media reaction is similar...solved...no questions...thank you...move along.

I did see more information of some sort of “turn back towards the airport”...(no clue if it was intended or just happened).

Re: Ukraine 738 down in Iran

Shrapnel holes? Debate?
No.

I will say that an airplane took off, and then apparently burst into flames and went down.

Meteor is apossiblity.

But it has been clearly reported (which I stated above): Mechanical issue.
