Re: Strange and Stormy night at STL

Now, as best as I can tell, a few landings are taking place on 24....

They are starting to direct people to the North side of the line of storms through some lighter areas...not sure there's a lot of landings yet.

The tower is issuing takeoff clearances as fast as they can on 30L

Re: Strange and Stormy night at STL

I'm now hearing the occasional takeoff... Another interesting deal is that most of the flights are "trapped" South of the line of storms and the storms are just about to pass to the South of the airport. It will be fun to watch how they work them through the line and then in to land. The tower is ta...

Re: Strange and Stormy night at STL

I get outside to watch a 737 go around (I think we live about a mile outside the marker). Shortly after, another 737 comes along and goes all the way followed by a Weber C-206. The clouds are nasty gust-fronty going different directions and lots of little spin here and there. The original Southwest ...

Strange and Stormy night at STL

Big line of storms coming in...but, several minutes before they arrived, it seemed most planes were landing on 29 and most departures on 30L. (It would appear 30R is closed. (WTF on landing on 29 and departing from 30L As the storms approached, the tower was giving lots of wind shear warnings- all f...

Oh, I got in the occasional jab that I'm not so sure we need AOA indicators.

You can tell that to the engineers next time you e-mail them one of your tricky questions.

Gabrielism
If this references 3BS making repeated, wordy rantings. Apologies.

If this references aircraft systems design. Disturbing.

Re: Good For Delta - Crackdown on Boobies

Perhaps the next iteration of the 737-Max can have a small "mommy room". That should be easy enough... just put a partition wall in the lav and add a second door. :mrgreen: Indeed . However, that space might be needed for the new DCAS control computer which decides if the plane should or should not...

Yes, I do. I can describe it as effective.

Re: The United Not_Debarcle

Isn't that a MAX? Everybody duck!!

One might note that it appears most (all?) of the photography was from above...Clearly a wise move knowing it might suddenly go into an unrecoverable dive, and clear evidence that this flaw was known about long before the two crashes.
