Re: Another Old Member Surfaces

By the way, Per, Thanks for defending me. Everybody knows the meaning of ' To have class'. Some don't want to know it or pretend not to know it, that's why they are 'dummschwätzen'. I nowhere said I would have class and I didn't brag with my occupation. At least I can say that I probably make double...

Re: What happened in Luxembourg?

Do you have any statistics showing accidents per capita, ages and sex of the drivers and causes? It could be interesting to see how Lux fares against, for instance, Denmark on this. Judging by the frequency which you post severe accident photos, it seems the population of Luxembourg is in a fast de...

Re: DC Metro Crash

I'm surprised J hasn't posted this yet, but we had quite a train disaster in the DC area yesterday afternoon. Automated systems are supposed to keep these trains apart with operators providing a manual backup in case of system failure. Clearly, at least two holes in the cheese lined up. I was waiti...

Re: Air France jet missing

A spokes-person from the French AIB says that it is not confirmed to be the recorders they have found.

Re: Air France jet missing

Some good photos here of the Lufthansa lower deck options on an A340-600.

But those are probably 'fixed' Crew Rest Compartments, unlike the one found at the AF-crash site, which was a part from a Mobile Crew Rest located in the aft cargo deck for that fateful flight.
