Following the tragedy in the Ukraine and a photo i saw recently on this website, would it be possible to install flares or other anti missile systems on planes to prevent any future incidents. From looking through the forums it appears the Israelis have fitted some sort of system to their planes but...Jump to post
I am sure this has been mentioned but so many threads to read.
Can an aircraft fly 1000ft below another and radar think it one plane if one of them has turned off the transmitter?
a pilot friend of mine suggest one theory is this plane could fly below another and hide.
Is this probable
Finding a raft sounds very positive but am amazed it has been found so close to <acronym title="KLM Royal Dutch Airlines">KL</acronym>. The currents maybe strong in the area.

out of interest how close can parallel runways be to each other? after looking at a satellite view i was wondering would it be possible as a last resort to put 2 runways where the southern one is now. taxi ways would need to be used but it is the only option i could think of when keeping the same fo...Jump to post

i think it was a VC10 but with the strange tail marking and the fact that there was a civil walkway ladder (not sure of the correct name) upto the front of the aircraft i was confused. i have to assume that even after the tanker conversion, the pilots enter and leave as they would when the aircraft ...Jump to post

a question that I have had for many years is why is it that most planes i see flying overhead have these huge contrails which line the sky but occassionally i see planes with nothing at all? i assume it must be due to the outside air temp at that height? and must assume that is why planes close to t...Jump to post
