Not sure of the liveries, but hear of two snowstorm-related runway excursions over the past two days.

Delta Ditch Deviation Duplicate Debacle

Jan 13 ish at CVG.

Arguably, there is a trend.

But no pontification other than I love it when ATL razzes Evan about “trends”’with Western airlines.

(Yes, I made a somewhat different post on this topic there)

Re: Latest From Aviation Typists

***there are things computers are useful for***
What do you think about them tracking speed and location on a runway and perhaps an inertial acceleration for double-check purposes and checking to see if the takeoffs appear to be on-track?

I am calling TeeVee and will be filing a lawsuit against Flyboy. Here we have clear proof of airlines reducing their customer service.

WN Founder Did Died

Founder of excessive taxi speeds, open seating, hubs at old (especially Texas) airports and profit driven poor maintenance has died.

The prior announcement may contain some sarcasm.

An overly long takeoff and clipped approach light after lift off.
Ban all lights!
Wrong. The pilots need lights to see where to land.

The use of a conveyor belt; however, would seem to have some promise and would allow essentially unlimited runway for liftoff.

No.

Instead I wish to provide strong advice to the industry regarding maintenance procedures.

They are profit-driven, and in need of more regulation.
