Re: Delta 757 hard landing this morning at Azores PDL

Good points, but there isn't a lot of current demand for 757 freighter conversions in part because there are a lot out there. The sweet spots at the moment are 737-sized and 767-300 sized. Everyone is putting so much weight into this LOV issue, when clearly we see the engines being the driver for r...

Re: Delta 757 hard landing this morning at Azores PDL

With the LOV being 75000/150000, it's not even halfway there on hours and a little more than a third of the way there on cycles. In 23 years of service. Of course these things often become insufficiently-reliable for major pax airline work long before reaching the LOV. For comparisson : All UPS 757...

Re: VIP Helicopter
