That Corsair 747-300 that operated the Boston flight yesterday was back in Dublin this morning. An Aer Lingus catering member of staff fell from the forward catering door and was rushed immediately to hospital.....no further details as of yetJump to post
The two A330's were parked side by side at stand 34 and 35 at dublin airport. The wind caught the side of one of the A330's and literally pushed it to collide with the other side on.

Agreed on the issue of far too many political threads.
Perhaps the boards would move a bit more briskly if you all stopped surfing news websites for political dredge and loosened up a little!
Well, regardless of political affiliation, could one not consider it a positive sign that there are two black men running for the same high profile political position?

A new scheduled airline started operations at Dublin Airport on MAy 4th called JetGreen Airways. Originally intending to launch as Fresh Aer, JetGreen operates from Dublin to Faro, Malaga, Rome, Alicante and Nice. They offer the first 12 seats on each flight for 1 euro and they absorb any charges an...Jump to post

I did a history report a while back about German reconstruction, and I included a lot on Ludwig Erhard. I'm glad he made it onto the list, although I'm a little surprised that one of the most important politicians/economists involved in postwar reconstruction was not ranked a little higher. I'm also...Jump to post
I <i>live</i> in the water. I swim up to four hours a day on a swim team, two practices per day on most days (except for tapering for meets). Weight room twice a week, running once a week.

Back in Spring 2001, I was going on a school trip to Hawaii and as we were sitting at the gate waiting to board, I muttered to my friend that something with the flight didn't seem quite right and I couldn't figure out what.

How do I phrase this properly?
I support harbouring the concept of the global community but "globalisation" should not mean that women in Swaziland sew t-shirts for a Taiwanese subcontractor who sells them in North American and European markets.
The WTO as it exists will simply not work for me.

In some states here, we're (minors) not even allowed to carry alcoholic beverage containers.

The issue for me is that kids never learn anything about responsible drinking from their parents. Then, they go to university and get plastered every weekend and develop problems. I therefore think that the current drinking age of 21 is bad sense because it robs parents of the opportunity to properl...Jump to post

In my opinoin, the Bush administration could not have been more cunning in choosing Colin Powell. He's a minority, which scores points for Bush and he's a decorated and respected military man.

Hey, Martin. If you're talking about driving, it actually varies slightly from state to state here.

Personally, I'm sick of people looking for dogmatic figureheads upon which to pin their hopes and ideals. If it's not Mike Moore, it's Rush or Mike Savage.
