Do we know if the E4-B has ever been refueled? I believe it has the same system that was put on the VC-25. I'm sure it has, if for no other reason than for the crews to retain currency/qualifications on receiver refueling operations. In fact, I think I've heard that the guys who fly the VC-25 pract...Jump to post
The TFR opens at 5pm, so it should be sometime shortly after that:
The museum by runway 1R is stunning and a must see.....especially since you're already paying for parking to spot there and that makes it free. As much as I enjoy spotting, I think you have that backwards. Yes, the National Air & Space Museum is stunning, and as long as you are paying to park t...Jump to post
So how comes that the thread was considered as okay on the weekend but on Monday it was no longer okay? Is it possible that different moderators have different standards? It may not have been seen by the mods - they always point out that they can't monitor every thread - and it wasn't dealt with un...Jump to post

As much as I respect and honor the military, I also feel that we should celebrate firefighters and police officers who serve others regularly by having a day dedicated to them. Completely agree - but it’s pretty sorry that it’s 2019 and none have been established at the federal level. I guess neith...Jump to post
I look at this as free babysitting, some stranger will take care of my child for 4 hours while I sit in the back and relax. I hope this comment was made sarcastically. If your little kid is sitting next to me unaccompanied, I'm sure as hell not going to babysit. I don't have kids of my own for a re...Jump to post
I remember there was a guy who had the FBI investigate him for something he said on here. I forget what it was about though. There was a guy who asked some hypothetical questions about an airplane (I think he asked about a 707) crashing into a building - unfortunately, that was shortly before 9/11,...Jump to post
Doug Parker was on the NBC nightly network news tonight, and said much the same - if his pilots feel it is safe, he and his family would fly on the MAX.Jump to post
I posted ONE day. There are more, go see the FT thread for example. Widebody MX delays are uncharacteristically high. When passengers notice it, you know that the slowdown hand was overplayed. Having that many longhaul flights have mx issues in one day is very unusual and quite suspect. I realize t...Jump to post
Borrowing from the FT delay thread and dkc192's post You listed 11 flights with MX delays yesterday. How many flights does AA have in a day? What percentage of their total operations for yesterday does this represent? Probably a fraction of 1%, right? How is that indicative of a union slowdown? How...Jump to post

It’s probably a cost thing. The president is campaigning in Pennsylvania tonight. If incumbent presidents want to use VC-25 for campaigning, they must reimburse the government. I’m guessing that costs a lot more than opting to fly Trumo’s personal plane. The Secret Service isn't going to let him fl...Jump to post
If the section for controlling pitch manually with column and trim is ALWAYS to be followed, it should not be indented. The following modified checklist would make that far more obvious...

CLT is my personal favorite despite not a whole lot of variation in airlines. Yes, CLT has a great observation area, right next to the approach end of Runway 18C: https://photos.smugmug.com/Airplanes/Airliners-and-Airport-Spotting/Charlotte-Douglas-Airport/i-H22m8KJ/0/b79d03da/L/JM_2012_04_29_Charl...Jump to post

Yes, saw it on the news yesterday. There's a thread in the Civil Av forum, but I think it's better as a Non-Av posting, since other than the fact that he works as a pilot, it's really not aviation related.

As far as I know, there are no scheduled wide bodies into LGA these days. I'm not aware of FedEx ever bringing the MD-10 in, but they may have on a one-off.

I think it would be a good addition - as you note, there are times I would like to acknowledge a post, or show my agreement, but without quoting it and making another comment, you can't, and that adds another post of little value to the thread.

What would happen if the pilot asked for emergency crew, and it the end, the landing was routine and nothing bad happened, therefore fire fighters are not needed? In another forum they asked if the pilots or the airline would receive a fine for having called a emergency when it wasn't needed. I don...Jump to post

I don’t get the vehement defense of 150 hr total time pilots at the controls of mainline schedule pax planes. Your argument is spurious all pilots start with zero hours. While true you are missing the point. And I don't get your repeated rants about pilot time either. You have posted the same thing...Jump to post

I disagree. Got hit a few times as a child, both at home and school. Problem with Psychologists is that they try to create one rule that fits every instance.

They didn't have the inside open to the public, but I did get a good look around the outside and spent about 10 minutes talking with one of the pilots who flew it in.
