Current and future wrong runway alignment thread.

According to www.internet.com headlines, A Delta person had trouble with keeping the 14 strips of somewhat parallel concrete straight during the week of 12/11/2017. The article was a good one- seemed to be trying to embellish it to a "near total disaster" "The plane, crossed the taxiway threshold at...

Re: Cheap composite Christmas cheer

This is pretty cool: http://www.cnn.com/2017/12/13/europe/christmas-tree-airplane-airbus-germany-trnd/index.html I wonder if they had to taxi the aircraft using the tiller and their eyes...did they advance the throttles by hand, or just push the takeoff button?

Re: Smithsonian Channel Air Disasters- Atlantic Airways 670, BAE 146 Overrun.

I rest my case. The commander noticed that the aircraft was not decelerating as expected. He did not associate this with the fault in the spoilers and assumed that the problem was due to a fault in the brakes. He therefore applied the emergency brakes. The flight crew got information that both lift...

Re: Smithsonian Channel Air Disasters- Atlantic Airways 670, BAE 146 Overrun.

if the discussion is this crash, then the misdiagnosis of brake failure is not particularly valid. Just a reminder that for this crash, there was not a misdiagnosis. Why not? What I was saying is that exactly the opposite is a possibility. Ok...two possibilities here. A. The pilots thought they had...

Please, carry on and note the OTHER agreement on asking "just what emergencies are emergency brakes intended for". For parking , like in cars.

Was it Titled, "The United Debarcle"?

Seems to have most of the classic attributes... The airline claims "non-compliance" The police side with the airline. Captains and zip ties seem, absent (I always did question Boeing Bobby on that). I guess this story does lack physical altercations. https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/breastfeeding-mom...
