Re: Intersecting approach paths of SFO and OAK

I’d say if anything departures to the north out of SJC affect SFO arrivals more so, they have to climb pretty steep and or turn quite soon on climb out from my experience The turn isn’t any sooner than many other departures around the world, but it’s unusual in that it is 180 degrees. The climb out...

Re: Intersecting approach paths of SFO and OAK

Not related, but something else interesting in the area. I moved to PDX last year and have been travelling SJC - PDX. When SJC departs to the northwest, we will do a 360 degree loop to the right around the SJC airport, then overfly it at an altitude and proceed north over the bay, enroute to PDX. N...

Re: DELTA Engine Failure , Emergency Landing in the Bahamas (N335NW / DL651)

As I am not a pilot, I saw something on landing, that I do not understand. As soon as they touched down, they deployed the thrust reverser on what is likely the operational engine (only). Would this not cause an asymmetric event on the aircraft where control can be lost??? Just because you deploy t...

Re: 737NG Spoiler Settings
