Re: Informe de vuelo con fotografías de jetes, Tres DeMayo, 2017

Yes, I agree. There is nothing super special or outstanding with SW. Just a plain, bare, minimallist airline service. I just feel that they do a tad better than the legacy which is not a high bar by any account. In this case they were about $5 cheaper, but the most important factor why I chose them ...

Re: Informe de vuelo con fotografías de jetes, Tres DeMayo, 2017

Flight report: I survived. Actually, it was a nice experience, compared to the legacy airlines. Yes, it is bare bones and minimalist, but it does work. Only one class, and actually a bit more of legroom than in the legacy coach, and with a combination of luck and early check in you might get the cha...

Re: TWA 800 Back In the News

A contained engine failure is that where no internal component of the engine leave the engine except through the tailpipe. So no, a whole-engine separation is not an uncontained engine failure in itself. It can cause or be caused by an uncontained engine failure though.

Interesting...So, you're on an H-1B? Nope. Since I was already working for this company in Argentina, the type that applies in this case is L-1 (internal transfer). In my case, L-1A to be more precise. Inconceivable! And no, I don't need to look that word up. (You probably won't even get the refere...

Re: Boeing’s plan for biggest 737 MAX meets with industry doubts

Airbus sales chief John Leahy, also presenting at ISTAT, tried to knock the concept down by reminding the audience that smaller, lighter twin-aisles jets have failed before. He cited the Airbus A310 and the Boeing 767-200, saying that the drag and weight of those wide, twin-aisle planes produced wo...

I am 80% certain that a hanging string exists somewhere as a formal procedure for total instrument failure. An instructor mentioned it to me and maybe I read it somewhere.

Re: Two dead in Grumman Mallard crash in Australia

These photos and videos focus too much in the impact. In this link below (in Spanish) you have longer clips that capture also the onset of the situation. Still, they are not good enough to tell if it was a stall in a turn, or if it was a badly managed left engine failure, which IMHO are the 2 most p...
