American Triple I: https://www.tripleipartners.com/our-team/ Sucks to be right. It smacks of being a vehicle to pump money into the pockets of members of New York's political elite. Shameless.

That is the State Route 73 Bypass. It was designed and budgeted when ILN was still Airborne Express.

Unfortunately, the window-tinting in the guy's car makes it impossible to see the mist as he swings the camera around as the airplane passes over the runway threshhold and he films through the window.

So I was in Cincinnati today, and decided to drive up to Hooterville (KILN) to see it in person. Nice drive, pretty day. I could see the yellow-banana 757s that will be going to some other carrier.

I don't understand the posts here that talk about Air Wisconsin's "unwillingness to invest capital in larger RJs".

One observation: the couple who was killed was characterized as "owners and members" of Hideaway CC, which some media have interpreted as meaning they're owners of the real estate agency.

Six people were on the plane. Two were pilots, three were employees of a commercial real estate firm based out of California, no word on who the fourth was.

So I did a little digging myself. TARCO Aircraft Funding isn't some big aircraft lessor, as it's currently the registrant for only this aircraft.

Interesting that two days later, a lot of information hasn't appeared.

N919AZ leased to Amazon/Silver Airways yesterday. Does the timeline on Planespotters seem correct? It only took 3 weeks to convert at COE?

Yes, the RNP to 11 makes much more sense, but again over at PPW the discussion is ATC was denying that approach to the previous crew who finally insisted long enough for ATC to issue it.

Circling approaches aren't a big deal.. No big deal? Just curious when was your last circling approach in a Cat D jet in mountainous terrain in 3 mile visibility?

Don't understand why they didn't just do the RNAV approach to 11 if they needed the length, which would have avoided the need for the circling approach which apparently induced the stall. Wondering whether this is gonna be another Teterboro.

I do not think civilian 737s are worked on there ATS has a substantial facility there. It's a highly-regarded MRO, with facilities also at Moses Lake and in the former TWA technical faciliy at MCI.

I am glad to see though that the resident DC-8F continues to ply the Carribean on a daily basis. Absolutely.

I'm sorry they didn't get a call to run both simultaneously.Jump to post

Why would you go through the hassle of converting a pax 747 when you can get a freighter pretty much dirt cheap?

The FAA action seems consistent with the rumours that this operator was flying 737s with ragged-out JT8Ds that weren't, for lack of a more-precise term, in the highest state of repair and so when they lost thrust in the one engine, the other couldn't be set at a high-enough thrust level without over...Jump to post
