"Dallas" cancels stuff and "shuts down" due to FORECAST thunderstorms...

Apparently DFW and DAL (or some of their airlinees) made proactive decisions to cease "normal operations" and keep lots of planes away from a FORECAST of potentially severe storms with lots of hail this week. I have ZERO Evan criticism, but will comment that this seems a LITTLE bit new - at least to...

Re: Are [i]we[/i] comfortable with how wings work?

Seems to me that a measured pull up was in order.

By the way, I'd prefer to order it without lettuce.

2017.04.17 I see lots of HEADLINES suggesting a cause, but then the articles say almost nothing. Massive PC media cover up?

Re: FAO: Gabriel; Why don't [i]we[/i] just unplug MCAS?

But how about some sort of "endorsement" system where to fly the new damn-similar-to-the-old plane, you spend maybe 2 hours in a classroom and 1/2 hour in a sim, being instructed on what's different about this plane vs. the one you were previously rated on? "We" do that already, but thanks for the ...

Re: FAO: Gabriel; Why don't [i]we[/i] just unplug MCAS?

Gabieee: So, again, the answer is I don't know if the MAX would be certifiable without the MCAS or if it is just a matter of having both airplanes feel more similar so you can have pilots flying both types alternatively and under the same type rating. Educated gossip in youtube and forums seem to p...

Sorry, black and white was not my intent. Cool story & appreciate the variations. My context was the 737-MinLav...and just how much nose over help it needs...does it really need the DCAS (Dive Causing Augmentation System) to ‘assure’ recovery, or is it ‘only’ “nice to have” and ‘only’ to make it FE...

Newsworthy, at least.

I suppose a bird could have whacked a smoke detector and made it give the indication that there absolutely is no fire whatsoever and that the heat should be switched to high.

Domino Sugar is advertising this.

There is an explanation, much like airlines sometimes make regarding some much-discussed customer service incidents.

Yes, I know, you get an aeroplanie that likes to help with relentless pull ups... Yes, I know, then it doesn't feel the same as other 737s (which is the major BUSINESS problem)...you can't play card that we are like Airbus where A320+/- are all the same. But so what...just redo all the 737-MinLav tr...
