That’s great news. There are some flight already listed at the winter schedule 20/21 on INNs homepage, but I’m not sure if all routes are really going to happen. The Netherlands and GB would be very important for the winter tourism, but this is only going to happen if COVID cases go down in all coun...Jump to post
If you look at aircraft more or less contemporary to the A330, like the Tristar and the DC-10, they don't have large fairings either. Actually, the DC-10 does have a quite large fairing underneath and behind the wing, which even got extended as far as half way on top of the cargo door. But yes, the...Jump to post

Fan diameter should be included in the 10%.
Maybe I just never noticed before, but on my last flight on a FR 738 I saw this for the first time. Before the flight attendants closed the overhead bins, they pulled or pushed a small handle on the side of the bin. I attached a picture of it, the handle is in the red circle. I guess the explanation...Jump to post

Bear in mind that the outboard engines do have quite a bit more ground clearance than the inboard engines. If you look at picture from a 744 from the front, it does look possible.Jump to post
I did contact the Australian ATSB - they are looking into it as well. My money is still on Horstroad's analysis. I had another close look last night and you can see a tiny trace of red paint on the stripe area - just like Flight 603. And the part of the black letter that is visible is almost certai...Jump to post
I think you are on the money Horstroad, that is pretty incredible. The black markings do indeed look like a 5. The color is actually gray - you can see the white gel coat behind that in places. I found it in a very remote spot - it was 20 km from the nearest road access, and I'd say less than 20 pe...Jump to post
Did they have the Callsign „Loon“?
That’s a former Google business, doing research on internet-connections with balloons.
To get back to the original post: The position of the bulk cargo door is different. You can spot it when you enlarge the pictures. Any reason MDC would have changed the location? Just a guess, but the wing-body fairing was extended at some point, going halfway over the door (you can actually see th...Jump to post
Here is a very long recording of an A320 PTU: https://youtu.be/XEG1ZfPHkVo Just search for „barking dog“ on YouTube, there are plenty of videos with sound. Never heard it on any other plane.

That was the point of my original posting. Why are such small places shown on in flight maps? If I may speculate, maybe the AC is tuned to a ground based NAVAID at that location and so it identifies it on the map.

From the link above: It says the take-off was aborted as a result and that debris struck the aircraft fuselage and its other engine . How can that happen? Either some part flew in an arc around the aircraft, or it went straight through the fuselage. Unlikely through the cabin, as there would be pict...Jump to post

From what I can see, the A330 cup holder is a slightly tapered tube sticking out of a vertical surface and it seems to be placed in an unergonomic place. By contrast, the 777 cup holder is a sophisticated design that can hold a regular paper coffee cup, a coffee cup with a handle, or a soda can all...Jump to post
I can vaguely recall that EASA (or some other) required changes with the 744 due to one cable raceway being considered a single point of failure if the floor between upper and lower deck gave in, and that was too much for grandfathering. But again, that is blurry pre-internet memory..... Best regar...Jump to post
In the case of the 737, the most critical scenario in terms of highest fuel burn is the depressurization with both engines still running. We carry enough fuel to lose pressurization exactly at the ETP, descend to 10k feet and make it to an airport. So a 737 uses less fuel with one engine out at 10k...Jump to post

You can calculate fuel burn based on the ACAP and it seems the 787-10 has 5% more fuel burn at the same weight. So the 787-10 is probably using some of that extra available thrust. The 787-10 fuselage wetted area is 9% greater but total wetted area is around 6% greater. Thrust is 7% greater. ... Th...Jump to post

I assume one of the requirements of an easy NEO is that the new engine is of similar weight, size, with the same pylon and engine control interface as the old engine. I guess you are right.
