Cheap Airline not Maintaining Aeroplanies- Risk placement on Evan's no-fly list.

Not going to rant...conversely, maybe we are taking things too far in the MBA, Aeroeconomy$effeciencyengineering department and the marketing department... Sounds a bit rough for Alex Airlines.

Re: Flight report Feb 2019

I seem to recall Gabieeee is returning to Uhmurica via DFW today (2/15/2019) We will see if there are further incidents of "going technical" and not arriving here or there on time. Over six legs Gabieee and I have three aircraft swaps (I guess AA is better than United, although we are comparing nowh...

Re: Air Canada 777 tail strike

How does smashing the airplane's fuselage into the runway qualify as a "good" landing? Please explain in 10,000 words or less.
Everybody walked away + aeroplanie can be reused (after some duct tape and zip ties) = excellent landing.
Fixed.

How do [i]we[/i] feel about the new green plan for USA...

I know this is politically dangerous, but...

-I find it rather extreme.

-I laugh that Evanie seems to like it.

-I know I may be bit red for the enlightened group here, but I would like to point out that this plan calls for large scale elimination of aeroplanies.

Re: Convair C-131 double-engine failure and ditching, 1 dead 1 injured.

Speculation in this forum has it as mis-fueling with Jet-A Fixed. Does Jet-A float over 100LL? Because the pane flew a good while at constant speed and altitude before starting to descend. I don’t know every last Evanesque detail of every airplane, but imagine multiple tanks... Gratuitous speculati...

Re: Total Kenya Airways E190 Ground Disaster

Since it involves SI units and soccer, I could not care less. I’m guessing the temperature was in the 20s.

As flyboy likes to remind us, I imagine there is paperwork involved.

Lengthy Gabrielian flight report
That’s six for six...amongst the licensed self proclaimed insider (in our minds, anyway) experts.

Donkey carts improve their relative standards.

Good job on the photos- which I’ve become lazy about posting.

Hey, 3WE, every aeroplanie you get in immediately explodes in one way or another (OK, not always immediately , shimmy dampers tend to explode on landing) or gets covered in 50 M of snow .

Re: Flight report Feb 2019

Pilot just set takeoff flaps (engines not started)

And now the whole flight just got canceled due to flight attendant time out. (And passengers asked off)

Oh, no- an update...the passengers say they don’t want off...we’re supposedly going

But another spray down (4) with flaps configured.

Dudes soaking the hell out of wing this time. Trailing edge ice cycles seem to be holding. Blasted the leading edge soaked the top....conversely the little bitty back flap (737) still looks coated.

Re: Flight report Feb 2019

Two spray jobs (15 min between)- pink stuff- and still ice cycles on wing. Crew reports that wind is complicating efforts. Third spray down underway.

Some reason they don’t do this before boarding?
