Re: RTO for impending fire

This thread reminded me of this youtube video of an A350 that auto-rejected due to a glitch in the runway overrun protection I believe https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MKtPlj932YY It appears they would have been doing around 80kt at the time and shows from the cabin how much of a jolt it gives as wel...

Re: On the DC-10, what is the function of the "gear horn off" button other than the obvious.

Can someone explain this. Is there such a control on every airliner? On other aircraft it may be called something different such as Ground Proximity Gear Horn Override. Essentially does what it says if you are in a situation that involves flying close to terrain as part of a normal approach procedu...

Re: Are holding patterns used very much anymore and at which airfields?

Another example is weather - my brother in law was flying to Rarotonga from Auckland and when they got to Raro the weather was pretty rough, they went into a hold for a while (5 or 6 laps with extended legs) to see if would improve. No luck so all the way back to Auckland! 7.5hrs flying for nothing.

Is anyone at "fault" when an airplane has to enter a holding pattern or is it weather, SOP or something else? Seems like a holding pattern would add to the fuel bill of an airline. Maybe I am wrong. Do airplanes still fly a racetrack pattern in the hold. They are not ideal, but do allow a...
