That flap looks astonishingly intact, considering it fell from considerable hight. Perhaps it glided slowly. Seems like a quite common occurence on the 747-400 series. https://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/flap-loss-on-747-undetected-after-night-landing-456302/ https://news.aviation-safety.net...Jump to post
Is moving military flights from EIN to GRQ consistent with the capabilities one would expect of the Dutch military ? I can think of at least one country that is not friendly to the Netherlands and has the capacity to send military aircraft armed with weapons to or even into Dutch airspace - Not sur...Jump to post
Because it is a modern 21st century plane. Unlike the b737 a 1950ies fuselage with too large modern engines.Jump to post
Airbus should wait for alternative powered engines. Fuel-powered jet engines might be banned by 2030. The A320NG will continue to sell another 10 years like hot cake.Jump to post

Another topic, just for change :) Don't you think it's time for PC to review their livery? Yes! I want Pegasus on the fuselage instead of Flypgs.com and a new letter font on the tail and more dynamic coloring on the livery! I agree. I always read it "Flypigs". They should also change the ...Jump to post
The DC-10 was grounded after American 191, and multiple other incidents like Turkish 981. I know we’re waiting on investigations to see what happened with both maxes, but maybe this notion is something to consider? Maybe not, and we’ll wait for the investigative findings. -Rowen To be absolutely ac...Jump to post
Maybe the Chinese will ground the 777 tomorrow...
Still nothing from FAA and EASA. Strange times we live in. The Chinese care more about safety and peoples lives than €urope and U$AJump to post
No, these developing countries have crashed numerous 737NG and A320 aircraft. No one called for grounding those fleets. But those were pilot errors and bad maintenance. The MAX keeps diving and pilots can't do anything about it. Nice intelligent comment that is completely factually incorrect. If it...Jump to post

Some people here didn't get the message. A380 is bad for AF. They have regretted to order them in the first place. They want to get rid of all 10. But nobody wants to buy the 5 owned ones. So they continue to use them for a few more years.
This is disastrous PR for the A380 program.
We should listen to both sides before we judge this guy or the crew. There is probably more to this than what we see in the video. Just calling someone ugly or black in an argument doesn't make him a racist.Jump to post
Its easier for Taiwanese to travel to/via Japan than via Mainland. Japan is visa free while they need a permit for travel / transit in Mainland. Despite its small population Taiwanese traveler also are third biggest tourist group in Japan after Mainland and Korea.Jump to post

Nigeria has a lot of oil money and high population. They could get two dozen A380s and make LOS the new DXB.Jump to post

What about DUS or TXL to SFO/LAX on Eurowings? With the demise of Air Berlin, those routes are no longer served. And with CGN-SEA being chopped, there will be flights from the West Coast to only FRA and MUC on Germany. If Norwegian ever opens long-haul from Germany those routes will be on top of th...Jump to post

Taiwan is an island/region. The country's name is Republic of China. Period. So the taiwan is a country group is wrong. Get over it. Both the PRC and ROC consider themselves as the legitimate government of the mainland and taiwan and Hainan and Hong Kong and Tibet.Jump to post
People keep mentioning HSR and Germany in this thread when we don't have HSR / Air competition in Germany. Stuttgart-Mannheim and Nürnberg-Ingolstadt with real HSR are not airlinks. Otherwise the ICE does only 120-150Kmph. MUC-BER 4hrs for 600km, or MUC-FRA 3.5hrs for 400km are not considered HSR. Y...Jump to post

The main problem is that a lot of (almost all) industrial tools use Windows as a basis to run their controlling apps. If they had custom Unix or DOS they wouldn't have to deal with a household virus.
They build million dollar tooling systems, but they can't write their own bootloader and OS?

Probably Ryanair. It is sad how Alitalia was managed. But Europe is too small for every nation to have its own airline. It is just time to accept that. Lightsaber Italy is large and rich enough to justify 2 national airlines plus easyjet and Ryanair. We are not talking Albania or Hungary here. Alit...Jump to post
Ultimately, there will be many more of both types; I think this is just the initial order and it will be added to over time, just as happened with the A330 and 777. True. TK tests the waters before committing to a new aircraft type. Not sure about their strategy. They are always late in the game. W...Jump to post
