I guess the Tail Support Assy woud have been optional & as an added protection against a tilt.
Sadly I dont have a pic of the Tail support assy used at that time.

What exactly is IRIG-B stand for.
Unless one has used GSE on the top of the Fuselage for Inspection purpose... there would not be a reason to check the area in Line anywayJump to post
Having Both Calender period and Total hrs as criteria for checks, Most checks will be calender timed out anyway & need the check before that.Jump to post
Who would be accountable for the bill on the ATF burned ...... ImportantJump to post

You would not want a Long Parked Aircraft to be struck by moving GSE around the area.
How is that ensured
What do people think about Akasa Air? They have ordered 72 737 MAX 8 and are planning to start operation next year. Do you think they will get off the ground even? Or do they stand a chance? How did they come up with the figure of 72? Do they know where they are going to operate? Ultra Low cost.......Jump to post

Now if you or I were an investor, why would I do that? The only thing valuable Air India has is the real estate and the slots abroad.

As for Pakistan, I also think the opposite, we should drop any pretense with that country and let it decide what it wants.

If it's edge wear, on one side of the tire (the "shoulder" tread if you will), I'm thinking it's a torque-link shimming problem. This would put the tire out of alignment making it wear with an uneven pattern. An imbalance will usually result in a shimmy of some sort. Assuming that it’s at...Jump to post

The amount of rise above the surrounding surface for a correctly installed briles rivet is only in the area of maybe two to four thousandths of an inch.
