No, but they are an MRO for the type.Jump to post
I think it is a perfect choice. LH can probably deal with this plane better than anybody.Jump to post
Can Boeing offer the 777F to the USAF? Absolutely! Cessna can also offer a C-172, Toyota can offer the new 4Runner, etc. That’s the beauty of private enterprise and government contracts: corporations can always offer, and the govt can always pass Would the USAF really be interested in purchasing a ...Jump to post
Are there any authentic takeoffs of 707s an DC-8s with the JT3c and JT4a engines? Im curious to see what they mustve sounded like in real life. This one is very good actually. The Qantas Boeing 707-138B that was restored... here it is on its first test flight in 2006. https://youtu.be/0arPKg6HvQU S...Jump to post

Many years ago on a flight I was on a woman rang the bell to say that something had fallen off the engine. We were on a 732 and what is there really to see out the window of something falling off. The capitan came and looked out of the window and went back to work.Jump to post
They have to inpeach him. There is not enough time for that but on the 20th however far it is along the work can just be stopped. There can be no situation where a President can be allowed to get away with all he has done without consequence.Jump to post
The new engines will be lighter.Jump to post
Makes sense, that is the closest big airport to where the Americans are.Jump to post
Right now there is a UA 777 Nurnberg-Savannah. Strange route indeed. Has to be cargo.Jump to post
Tje A400 is not exactly quiet. It is by far the loudest plane that flies over here. Only the occasional Antonov is louder but the A400 comes over every day at 32,000ft.Jump to post
The CF34 engine on the E170/190 is really not up the the task, neither is the CFM56 on the 737 NG. Nothing on the A320 is suitable, I admit to not being sure about the CRJ, but doubt it. Yes the engines can do it, but not 18 times every day for their entire service life. Why is this and how do you ...Jump to post
Originally the aircraft was provisioned with a fold out IP seat and IA seat, allowing a maximum of six crew members. However after an incident, they were not allowed to be used and have not flown with more than four since then. The IP/IA seats have also been removed from the aircraft. Thanks for th...Jump to post

If you're thinking about American Eagle Flight 4184, the de-icing boots have since been modified to reach further up the top of the wing and the old boots are no longer allowed to be installed; the ATRs are allowed to fly in icing conditions, and they do so safely. I picked up on the roselawn hint ...Jump to post

I really struggle to see where the demand between Mexico and the Middle East, Africa or the Indian subcontinent is. Even TK flying from Istanbul seems like a real stretch. With European carriers already flying to most of those places, I don't really see the relevance for the ME4 in Latin America ap...Jump to post
That is how we do it. If one of us makes a determination that a post needs to be deleted then we speak directly to the person. Weather it be nice or in some cases not so nice.
I understand you do not want to do it that way. And that shows you are not doing it correctly. With all due respect.
A friend of mine worked ticketing at JFK for Turkish. Said several years ago when Turkish offered $500/thereabouts roundtrip JFK to points like AMS, CDG, LHR, etc. - people came out in droves flying to IST then flying back to western europe to take advantage of the savings. They advertise Los Angel...Jump to post
VCVSpotter, which airport is close to Ft Irwin?? National Guard heading that way for a month. Not sure which airline and which planes will be used. They should start arriving after the 4th holiday?? I think that they would probably be using VCV for that, and then just getting picked up and bussed i...Jump to post
