Re: Lion Air 737MAX8 Crashed Jakarta to Pangkal Pinang

In the manual, under the description of how MCAS works, there is that little piece about how if the MCAS is activated (paraphrase) 'only the F/O switch is effected because that's the only one connected to the FCC'... I know what that means literally, but I'm not sure I understand what the impact of ...

Re: Lion Air 737MAX8 Crashed Jakarta to Pangkal Pinang

Just wanted to see if I'm missing something - If we assume the pilots incorrectly thought they'd addressed the runaway trim by pulling back on the column - as would have worked in previous iterations of the aircraft - then essentially they were in a tug of war and eventually they lost. Meaning the p...

Re: Flight MH370 was flown into water, says expert...

I had a question - and have tried to look through the threads for an answer. I can guesstimate an answer but I'd rather just ask it. Since I don't pretend to understand the political situation during the time of this disappearance... My question is - if this were an act of protest (albeit a brutal, ...

Re: Flight MH370 was flown into water, says expert...

Actually, the finding of a flap and a flaperon and NOT lots of debris like seat cushions suggest (as does the condition of the flap and flaperon) controlled flight into the water, followed by a partial break up of the fuselage which takes things like the seats and seat cushions to the bottom. It is ...

Re: Flight MH370 was flown into water, says expert...

Honestly, there is ZERO NEW "EVIDENCE" here! This is the exact same story that the "pilot did it" crowd brought out within a day or two of the original disappearance. And now a Canadian says it again so it's back in the news. The "flight sim data" has been discredited l...

Re: Flight MH370 was flown into water, says expert...

The confluence of recent releases of information certainly suggests that the pilot being responsible is the most probable theory... It would be one thing if the recovered data file on his computer was simply one that was purged as part of a regular overwrite... But evidence suggests this one specifi...

RE: More MH370 Debris Found, This Time In Madagascar

I don't know if this link will post, but it seems officials are not facing the (nearly inevitable) possibility that the range calculations were off. Given how tight a window they were actually narrowing that part of the equation to (by necessity), this isn't surprising. Anyone who has a real concept...

RE: Egypt Air 804 Paris-Cairo Missing Part 5

Hivue - sorry if I wasn't clear about extending the pinger life. Per your post, I suggest we make N the maximum days possible without significant cost increases. (Even if we just do this for new deliveries) My point wasn't that maybe 35 days or 60 days or any number will be a magic one. You are 100%...

So 20 days now has me thinking that the 30-day life of the pingers is really not enough. If a plane goes down in one of the most heavily traveled bodies of water and it takes at least 20 days (and who knows how many more) to successfully locate the FDR and CVR, how are we to expect that any airplane...

RE: Egypt Air 804 Paris-Cairo Missing Part 4

For what it's worth, while we bash (rightly) outlets like CNN, you can imagine my surprise when I read into today's NEW YORK TIMES : (paraphrase) the first fault indicates the co-pilot opened his window.

Does that ring a bell with anyone?

RE: Egypt Air 804 Paris-Cairo Missing Part 4

Has anyone matched up when the FCU2 fault ACARS warning was triggered when compared to the start of the turns or the "descent." If they lost the autopilot at 37,000 feet while dealing with a crisis - perhaps in this case a fire - that can become quite challenging - as we've seen in the past

I've never seen the authorities go to terrorism so fast... (or maybe that's the media saying the authorities are saying that)

Where's the "let's take a moment" and not get ahead ourselves?

Interesting... Where I was trained, my instructors said (over and over) 'if something starts to go really wrong, just go around...' Now, it isn't like I'm gun-shy to land.
