KDFW-TV in Dallas said in a news report a couple of days ago that it would require at least 150 hours for each grounded 3M8/3M9 to get the software updates installed, fluids and engines checked, and, presumably, for pilots to be re-trained and/or re-certified before they're back in the air. Just bec...Jump to post
As a Boeing fan, it does feel a bit hallow and reminds me of a line my grandmother once told me. "My what a web we weave when we practice to deceive.''Jump to post
And they did so at night no less, not during prime daylight like JT610 and ET302. Perhaps the third crew member of the flight previous to the accident flight could see the trim wheel spinning much better from his position and correlate the aircraft's irrational movements to that. All the other pilot...Jump to post
I've read all 26 pages but I recall a post earlier, and I'm not about to look it back up cause my head is spinning, but some pilots were concerned with the compressor stalls in the Max. I believe I read that they were concerned with the surging and voraciousness of the stalls. I'm wondering if this ...Jump to post
[...]I'm frustrated by the lack of information on the A220 teething problems.[...] Could it be simply because there are not any real issues yet for DL A220's? The A220 has had 18 months in service before DL sent them out. The teething issues were mostly ironed out by then, and the DL frames are sti...Jump to post
Listening to the video inside the cabin why did it take so long for the pilots to hit touch and go power? It seems there is a good 15 seconds where the engines weren't spooled up. Seems like a slight oversight to me.Jump to post

And I stand correct when I critiqued the depths at which it was found. 28' of mud is unrealistic and for anyone to think they'd have stirred 28' of mud over a km of area is crazy.Jump to post
MSPNWA is spot on with the physics involved. I realize you can sift through mud/silt but the reality is 28' is significant. To think they dug 3 stories down in one location and "found" the CVR is remarkable. I live in a walk out 2 story house and to think from my upper floor ceiling to the...Jump to post
28 feet deep bud? Come on. It's the size of 3 hockey pucks. Metal detector or not I'm just trying to figure out how one would dig 28 feet deep in one concentrated area.

JAMBO i know for a fact I was in United Y in 30'' and it was brutal. 737-800. Seatguru says most 737-8 all show 30'' so take it for what its worth but you were sure they wouldn't touch 30'' and in fact they do all day long.Jump to post

So I watched this review on youtube and while all seems fine with service and food what on earth is all that rattling going on?

And per today's headline the Piaggio is gong out of business so apparently thinking outside the box doesn't net guaranteed success.

I seem to recall a United bird being out of commission for 6 days or so for cabin refit, does that sound right? I don't recall why I'd remember it but want to think some speculated a 777 was going to victorville when in reality it was a cabin refit. I'm sure someone else can fill in the details.Jump to post

Yeah I think they do need a hint of yellow in there much the way Singapore Air uses the dash of orange. To me this isn't some massive shift in scheme and seems quite expensive for what it is.
