Thankful everyone made it out safely. Let's hop that the A350 won't be too heavily damaged to be written off. Anyways, it is at least happy news that everyone made it out. The aviation community in general needs some happy news after the China Eastern 5735 crash. Am glad it didn't end up a tragedy ...Jump to post

This happens quite often. I know the Baltimore Ravens do this often with various promotions. I would think other teams do the same. Real-world examples please, as I know of few (if any) teams doing this. I personally know four people (unrelated in any fashion with each other) who have flown with th...Jump to post
N464MC was probably my favorite a/c. We rarely saw 747s into BWI. She was a workhorse and will be missedJump to post
I highly doubt season ticket holders would be on a team flight though. If they want to travel for their team, then they are on their own for travel (unless there's a special promotion, but I haven't heard of such an occurrence). This happens quite often. I know the Baltimore Ravens do this often wi...Jump to post
Looks like they'll be feet-dry just east of Gwadar shortly. This may sound like a really dumb question but why would the CIA be going INTO Afghanistan now...Just to remove sensitive equipment or extract high value government workers etc ? In or out who knows! You don’t think we’ll have any spies? I...Jump to post
C-17 heading back in https://www.flightradar24.com/RCH885/28cc9e66 How do you know that it is heading in? Because it is? https://www.flightradar24.com/WSLR51/28ccad8f taking the same route. As did the KC-130J and the C-17 before it. I'll be happy to rescind if I'm wrong. But I'm not. Cheers. Sorry ...Jump to post

Seems like Qatar will look for any excuse not to pay. I was thinking the same thing. Since QR already has these aircraft in their possession, I'd assume they were already paid for, so what is Qatar looking for an excuse to not to pay for? It was my understanding that Qatar recently had a beef with ...Jump to post

WOW was doing very well at BWI. Also, it seemed like everyone I knew back in Pittsburgh flew WOW to Iceland. When they added the A330, things tanked. Slow and steady to start will be good for them. This group seems to have capable minds and funding to make this work.Jump to post

Now, let's look up which of the few airlines have a perfect safety record to see what airlines one should fly. Oh wait - Allegiant is the first result. Now let's scroll down to the Ds - wait what- no DL,, no UA, NO AA!!! hmmmmm..... It’s been so long since any of those airlines had a mainline accid...Jump to post

Since the NG's have been doing the West Coast to Hawaii for a few decades now, it should be obvious that the MAX will have no issues.
Wait, who is flying the NG to Hawaii?
DL, AS, UA, WS, AQ and soon SY and WN.
Who isn't flying NG's to Hawaii?
The MAX should have no problems betwen LAX and HNL. Where did you come up with that theory, Let me guess, the internet? Surely you don't an ailine like SWA would buy an airplane without seriously evaluating all the possible route applications? Yo, chill out. It's not a theory but a question. It was...Jump to post

These are in fact former NA 767s. If I remember correctly, they formerly appeared in a 'sanitized' NA colors. No titles on the fuselage and certainly no massive US flag on the tail. When they were flying for North American (before North American shut down), they had the full livery, including the g...Jump to post

Just that word of caution on what you wish for. Expensive pilots opens the door to more automation in the cockpit using artificial intelligence, leading to 1-pilot cockpits, and eventually to fully automated aircraft cockpits.

It has been a bit since the news came out about AA dropping the six teams. We know Miami Air is picking up the Dolphins and Steelers. Has anyone heard who the rest of the teams will use this year? They're going to throw an entire American football team on a 738? I know that the Ravens typically use...Jump to post
Holy crap. That was very intense and it seems no one was seriously hurt. They were conscious when first-responders arrived, and transported to a hospital. The pair’s vitals were good, said Capt. Larry Kurtz, of the Orange County Fire Authority. At 9:35 a.m., the Cessna collided with one car, with de...Jump to post
And there are plenty of respectful 13-year-olds that want to learn, post thoughtful and well-written posts, and handle themselves appropriately.

Also, this is from a thread on Reddit: "I flew the ILS 6 circle to land Runway 1 in a Hawker at TEB about an hour before this plane went down.

May the pilots RIP. Just listened to the tapes on LiveATC. There are no distress calls from the pilots. They are cleared to land runway 1. Then tower asks them if they're "going to start that turn" [on to final, presumably], to which they reply, "yes sir, we're doing it right now&quo...Jump to post
