RE: AN124 Blows Tires, Returns To IAH (w/ Video)

Why would an aircraft that blew some tires on takeoff circle to burn fuel and land from its point of origin instead of flying to its destination. 1) The plane has to land anyway 2) If fuel has to be burned, why not use it to get the aircraft and cargo to its destination instead of wasting it? Is a b...

RE: Avoid JFK In The Evening. (especially T1)

I regularly fly out of Terminal 1 on flights to Mexico and Germany. Crowds and waiting times depend completely on the time of day. In the morning AMX is flying to Mexico City and JAL to Tokyo. The terminal is quite peaceful. In the afternoon it starts getting crowded when all the european flights ar...

RE: NYC Concorde

Does anyone know exactly when the USS Intrepid will be taken to the dry dock? It would be great to be able to be there when it is actually towed from the pier into the Hudson.

RE: Red And Green Light In Customs By Pressing Button!

In Mexico, this is a standard customs procedure whenever you are entering the country. It does not matter if you enter through an international airport or seaport, or if you cross the border in a car or bus. This is supposed to work randomly. If you get a red light, a customs officer will go through...

RE: Waving To Airplanes: Why Only In Japan?

They do the a similar thing in Monterrey, Mexico: The ground crew stands in formation waiting for the plane to taxi into the gate and when the plane is pushed back; sometimes they wave, sometimes they don't. And I agree, it is nice when they do so.

Newark Take-off Pattern (22R And 22L)

What is the reason that makes all aircraft taking off from these runways immediately bank east after takeoff, and then after a few second bank west and continue climbing? I frequently drive next to the airport in the evenings and every time the same pattern is followed and curiosity is killing me. D...

RE: NWA 757 In China!?!?

I think <acronym title="Northwest Airlines (USA)">NW</acronym> has been really smart about how they do operations in Asia. Most of their trans-pacific flights arrive at around the same time to Narita, a few of them continue on their way to other cities as Hong Kong, most of them go back to the US an...
