Postby 3WE » Sat Feb 10, 2018 2:29 am

I have been stranded on an active taxiway for almost 5 min. I didn’t died yet. One pax hit the lav in spite of seatbelt signs. No yelling nor zip ties have transpired.

Any flap deployment -hopefully less than 30 degrees- yet?

Yes. Fortunately, Flyover does not_have 727 service from crazy short LATAM airports. The more normal, lower takeoff deployment was used on the WN 737-700 from RDU.

Yes, I DID check. Thanks to a type specific checklist, the cowboy monkey pilots set takeoff flaps.
