Are these one-off flights positioning flights to pick up the respective teams that United happened to make into a revenue flight versus flying it empty? No, these are flights moving in the direction of travel to the game, with a return back to away team city after game. Also, these schools don't al...Jump to post
No matter what airline teams flies, they all face the same seating issues...For instance Ohio State uses a UA 738, and before that they chartered a Miami Air 738. They all have 17' seating. Now Arizona State and Arizona uses a America West, US Airways and now American 321's which have 18" sitt...Jump to post
Fun fact: the company that makes the EMAS beds is no longer in business, meaning they will be unable to repair it unless they or someone bought extra blocks. This would render runway 8 virtually unusable by commercial aircraft. Whoa..... How is that going to work? Surely there have been other airpo...Jump to post

Any idea why the Texas Dept of Public Safety is doing laps at 18,000 ft?
The hurricane, yes, I know. What is this aircraft used for specifically? And what Texas local activities related to the hurricane happen at 18,000?
For PA WV and VA the greatest number of fly overs is YYZ? For PA it should be EWR. For For WV I'd think a D.C. Area airport. It says in the article that 20% of ATL flights pass over VA. That would be 200+ flights per day. No way YYZ exceeds that. If this is all flights, I wonder if YYZ - ENTIRE Car...Jump to post

Last time I went into Baghdad, it was a visual 10 degree descent from 10.000ft onto the runway. Didn't quite fit any criteria for 'stable approach', but was great fun to fly.

In terms of expansion, maybe they can add more charter work (if fleet availability allows), but if not, just keep doing what they are doing!

Given the location of Terminal 2, I bet the heaviest braking was to get turned off 5L / 23R and into the gate. The Terminal is pretty much at the approach end of 5L , so landing on 5L would give the crew incentives to brake and get turned around to head to the terminal. Also, what would the speed di...Jump to post
The next place props may make a resurgence is with some other technology leap.

To be honest, I haven't been up there in a while. I moved in 2009 and my family moved away in 2011, but with the new terminal layouts, I would assume they are pretty seperate.

Taking a stab in the dark here, since it is a 777, would it be likely that the delay comes from the Aircraft turning from an inbound international flight, and having to go through customs checks etc, and the inbound internationals may be delayed. or, maybe this aircraft is operating as a spare in Mi...Jump to post
