Re: What am I missing? A big IL 76

So I see in Wiki, that a wing caught on fire before it went down...reasonably accurate? Well, if a witness recalls seeing it, it must be true. :roll: I have no Idea what the multiple contributing factors to this accident were. However, it seems to me that the degree of improvisation involved in squ...

Re: What am I missing? A big IL 76

Ok Peminu, I'll give it a shot. 247 pax and 10 crew in a plane designed to carry 125-140 troops and 5 crew - I think we could be on to s...

....... if the passenger in question had paid extra for a window seat. :roll:
They should give discounts to sit in that whole row (or two).
I already have "aisle" as a preference with the travel agents, now I need row exclusions too. ;)

Re: Southwest engine went boom

Curious if she was wearing her seatbelt per good procedure? Sorry 3WE, I missed this before posting the same thing :roll: What model of CRJ-2747...the -300, the -700 or the max with the sinks that have hydraulic flow reversals? It seems it was not a CRJ but a B737-700 and the engine was a CFM-56

Re: Southwest engine went boom

"Passenger partially sucked out of window" and other injuries.
I wonder whether the passenger was wearing their "seatbelt while seated at all times".

Re: 787 troubles, the latest news..

All airplanes should have two different engines available from different manufacturers with minimal swap out effort required! Why not have two different engines from different manufacturers actually installed on all 787s? That way you would be certain that one of your engines is the most reliable e...

ROJ: spare rotor blades (total 5!). At the risk of stating obvious things we all know: one might roughly estimate more than 2X odds of a rotor blade flying off versus 2-bladed helicopters...Glad you surviveded.

We will have to consult the final report- was the parked chopper not properly positioned?
It seems this happened in 2012 and the report is here.
