Re: A340 troubles, the latest news...

Thanks for the clarification. I'll relay the information to Lufthansa Technik, thankfully they have an office at FLL.
Don't bother. They already know.

Re: A340 troubles, the latest news...

Noted. Is that from two airline mechanic youtube videos or is it just your own opinion backed by decades of airliner repair experience? You mean I need to look youtube videos or have 30 years of airliner repair experience to note that the nose of the plane is burnt? I was more curious what orifice ...

Re: A340 troubles, the latest news...

If the first 30 ft of the plane can be economically cut clean and replaced, then it can be saved. So it can't. Noted.

Re: A340 troubles, the latest news...

The following video shows an LH at FRA this morning (June 11) with fire damage caused by a burning tug. The video states the 18-year-old plane was not occupied by passengers and the damage "seems limited." I suspect an A340 of this age with what looks like skin damage (and I assume damage to the av...

Re: Oh, and by the way, fatal crash in Cuba

And Argentinian media has already highlighted that the aeroplanie was 30 years old... Can't wait to read what they say when they realize that the one that actually crashed was almost 39 :roll: . All media (including Argentinian) is already pointing out a the age of the airplane as if would have die...

Oh, and by the way, fatal crash in Cuba

Not that a lot of of people cares around here, but just so you know, a 737-200 crashed taking off from Havana, killing more than 100 and leaving a number of badly injured persons that you can count with some of the fingers on your left hand.

Re: Airbus sucks too

At FL240 the TUC is about 5 minutes. Now as you said the time to have any permanent consequence is much much longer. People will recover as soon as they start breathing normal O2 partial pressure. Now, the reason why this plane didn't go down sooner was not to keep the airspeed low. You can slow dow...

Re: No More Articles about the P210N

It is a fun challenge. Many people build their own plane from kits (that are largely pre-built already). But very very few manage to build from scratch and fly a plane that them designed themselves.

As a side comment, she was wearing a seatbelt (there were some comments in different fora in the line of "that happens for not using the seatbelt at all times as recommended")
