The pic in the article does seem rather like fuel is coming out of the jettison nozzle.
Why were the cabin lights on during takeoff? And why would they be on if it’s a ferry flight? I would think it's the same reason the crew turns on the cabin lights for landing: if there was ever a need to evacuate in a hurry as unlikely as it may seem, you are better off having all the lights on to...Jump to post
By my estimates, the greatest current number of WB twin subtypes in any individual airline is 8. This is shared between 3 airlines, TG, DL & UA TG 333, 359, 772, 77E, 773, 77W, 788, 789 DL 763, 764, 77E, 77L, 359, 332, 333, 339 UA 763, 764, 772, 77E, 77W, 788, 789, 78J Doesn’t TG also operate t...Jump to post
Btw, what happened to P4-KCJ, the plane involved in this incident? I couldn't see any recent flights on FR24. I can imagine that they scapped it due to it having "experienced" these high g-loads.Jump to post
Retracting the flaps (and leading edge slats) keeps them from getting damaged by ground equipment at the gate. I have the opposite question from the OP and it's funny this thread came up because I've been wondering about this for some. Your explanation above is of course the correct & obvious a...Jump to post
Well this flight is only 8 km shorter than the CDG-LHR crew familiarization flights that AF did when they introduced the A380 into their fleet. As I remember, those were available to the general public. Certainly, such short segments cannot be a good application for an aircraft that was never desig...Jump to post

Living in Berlin I flew Air Berlin rather often. It was always exciting what the flight will be like because they kept changing their concept all the time. It was hard to keep up so you never knew what kind of service to expect. While they changed their livery from the old one to the hybrid one and ...Jump to post

I spend most of my time in the German city of Cottbus. Every now and then sometime at night we have a AN-24 cruising overhead going south from Sweden to places like Hungary or even down to Northern Africa.
I always love when that happens. It’s gotten rare though now that I think of it...
It was a military charter from US Military, they will be taking back the soldiers to US from Germany as they had a conducted a military exercise in Poland. That's what a spotter from Berlin said it to me. Alright, thanks! Edit: Seems like the second flight didn’t make it to the U.S.: https://upload...Jump to post
Today (April 14) there have been two Atlas Air 747-400 at Berlin’s Tegel Airport. Having a 747, let alone two of them here is extremely rare. They must’ve been charter flights but I’m wondering who has been chartering them, especially considering they apparently needed two of them. The first one, N4...Jump to post
I flew in that area as well last week on an A340. It was a rather smooth flight until out of a sudden over the Arabian sea the plane moved upwards and right downwards again. The downward move lsted for about 5-10 seconds. That might've been what your mum experienced as well.Jump to post
I quite like this one:
Watch it with sound on!
Have a look here:

All they basically do is fly it there with heaps of stops. On Aussieairliners.org you may look up more registrations. This one is just an example.
I just returned from a 3 week trip to Thailand. We visited Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Phuket, Koh Chang and Koh Lanta. Out of all places I enjoyed Koh Chang the most.

Except for the -8 747 apparently don't have a RAT ( no need? ) That’s right, the 747-8 is the only type of 747 that has a RAT. The windmilling engines could supply enough Hydaulic pressure. That was not sufficient on the -8 so a RAT had to be added. The 767 where they accidentally shutdown both eng...Jump to post

KTN airport (Ketchikan, AS) is the only one that comes to my mind having a 02/20 runway.
Edit: Now that I think of KTN, KTM is another one having a 02/20 runway.
A while ago an EK A380 diverted to Palmerston North while a SIA A380 was stuck on the Runway in AKL. You mean Ohakea, which is not Palmerston North. An A380 at PMR would make big headlines, and not in a good way. Sure but in this case you stand to be corrected: https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-ze...Jump to post

You may find cheap flights through China. China Southern might offer you flights through AMS/CDG (on AF/KL) and CAN or maybe catch the Shenzhen Air flight through Shenzhen and then on to SE Asia.

Another one might be Saudia’s planes. Most of them have praying rooms. While this is obviously for religious reasons, from an economical point of view it’s a waste of space.

The most intense one that I’ve experienced is indeed the 777’s GE90. However I also quite like the GE equipped 787s. GE seems to be good on that While it’s not intense, it just has this deep sound which I like. It’s not so much on the RR equipped ones IMO.Jump to post
