Re: FAO Per

Supply, anchor handling.
Will bring all sorts of supply, including liquids to platforms and can position the platform's anchor as required to keep them in position. Dangerous, requires skilled and fearless crew. I bet you can find some hair-raising videos on YouTube.

Just flew Cebu to Panglao on a Air Juan Cessna turboprop thing. Asked for seat 1B, got 2A since 1B was occupied by a trainee pilot.

Re: F.A.O.: Tony

I'm on vacation in the Philippines at the moment, and too deep into a magnum bottle of red to post anything worthwhile. Oh, and that's going to last for another three weeks.
By the way, flying on a BaE-146 tomorrow. Woohoo.
Good to see some activity here.
Welcome back. Cheers!

Re: Flight Report (and Flyboy Appreciation Moment)

Marginally ambulatory and likely to suffer from significant O2 stress at a pressure altitude of 8,000 ft and definitely unfit to sit in the exit row.

You may be close, but I assume, not there yet.
Pffft, I've been hiking at higher.

Re: FAO Per: The sinking of the SS Faro

I don't think this was a case of over-reliance on automation, but a case of lack of decision making. He was told what to do, he clearly knew what to do, but he froze.
Been there, had it done to me. Many moons ago, one chapter in "Ancient Mariner's Maritime Mishaps.".

I've already read the report. A Swiss Cheese where the holes were drilled by poor ship design, poor seamanship, poor decision-making, total amateurs the whole bunch.
