Re: F.A.O.: 3WE

What happens with fuse plugs in case of meteor impact?
They are warmed (probably quite a lot) by heat transfer processes.

Indeed.

Additional ramblings: Do steep banks only occur at 10,000 feet and 250 knots? Can't they happen at other altitudes and speeds. (And regardless if it's wake turbulence or weather or some sort of collision avoidance maneuver.) ...and you are in the sim, right? Why not try it at 1000 ft AGL, full flaps...

It was interesting to observe some non-US air carrier procedures. Some things LH does would never happen on a US carrier, and I'll just leave it at that.

It would appear we should ban all overhead bins...Flyboy even concurred, somewhat.
