Smoke or Fumes Removal on B747

Hello everybody The 747-400 QRH (which I got after buying the 747 made by PMDG) has a checklist named Smoke or Fumes Removal. There is a step in that list that caught my attention, which states that if there are severe smoke and fumes in the cabin, the cabin crew will be advised to open certain cabi...

Re: Historic flight schedules

Thank you for all the provided answers I discovered a very interesting website called FlightEra, which provided almost exactly what I was looking for. At the same time, I discovered a virtual airline called WorldWideVirtual, which also has some very complete schedules from just very few years ago. T...

Historic flight schedules

Hello everybody Does anybody know if it's possible to find flight schedules for past years? Specifically, I'm looking for something where I could find departures and arrivals for any given airport and airline. Something that works like flightaware or flightstats, but for recent years, such as 2017, ...

Re: Boeing 737MAX Grounded Worldwide Q4 2019

I haven't read the thousands of posts regarding this topic. Still, I want to ask, does anybody know if Ethiopian will operate the MAX again once the grounding is lifted? Also if I'm not mistaken, there are 2 MAX for Ethiopian ready for delivery, will they still receive them after the groundings?

Re: What’s the emergency at EWR?

With this kind of damage on the nose gear, is possible to tow the plane? If not, what other ways of moving it could be used?

Re: Contingency planning at major international airports

In Chile we had an M8.8 earthquake in 2010. The terminal at SCL suffered serious damage, including the collapse of the ceiling inside the check-in hall. Thankfully it was at 3:34 AM, had it been during daytime, probably there would have been dozens of fatalities in the airport. The civilian part of ...

Re: Is there any country where domestic flying is carried out entirely or almost entirely by one manufacturer's aircraft

In Chile is almost the same. LATAM operates A320ceos, A320neos and A321s for the domestic network. Also Sky Airline has A319, A320ceos and A320neos as well. The newest entrant, JetSmart, operates exclusively A320ceos. The only exceptions might be the 772, 788 and 789 operated between SCL and IPC. Al...

And by the way, anybody knows the tail number and location? I tend to think it's DFW but can't be 100% sure

Front gear ripped off from an AA MD80

Hello everybody Today I discovered on Twitter this video about a very expensive fail commited on a parked AA MD-80. It seems this occured because the parking brakes were still on. https://twitter.com/AirCrashMayday/status/836607353860521984 I tend to think this plane will not be repaired considering...

Slightly off topic, but will this plane be repaired or it will be a write off? Any news about its status?
