I worked at JFK in the hey day of Tower Air in the 90's. A bunch of guys I worked with worked at Tower either full time or on an as needed basis. It was quite the operation they had operating out of the old Pan Am hangar 17. There were a bunch of talented people that landed there after Pan Am shut d...Jump to post
So, since the bizjet Challenger 600 variants, including the 650, all share the same Type Certificate with the CRJ variants, how is this going to work? Mitsubishi is now going to own the Type Certificate for one of Bombardier's current production large cabin business jets. Does this mean the end of t...Jump to post
I just followed the link to read the NTSB statement and it appears the wording has changed: ....The airplane then pitched nose down over the next 18 seconds to about 49° in response to nose-down elevator deflection. ..... It seems they don't want to imply (at this stage) that the dive was manually ...Jump to post
I don't want to speculate on what caused the crash. One thing I did find noteworthy from initial reports. Eyewitnesses either reported smoke coming from the plane as it dived, or flames. If this is true, it would suggest that the cause was something other than an MCAS issue, and the two incidents m...Jump to post

All this because a 747 was shot down. Yes, I refuse to believe the story of TWA800 Every time I worked on one of the AD related cards I would think, "This will prevent it from exploding when the missile hits." I also don't buy the TWA 800 fuel vapor story. Planes were flying around for de...Jump to post
New one for me. Never seen core cowls open in flight. Normally fan cowls are opened up, then the core cowl is unlatched and pumped open with an external hand pump. Process is reversed to close. Really surprised someone got under the fan cowls to latch them and didn't notice the core was unlatched. G...Jump to post

Well guess who’s back at ISP?!? That’s right! Elite Airways operating the KISP-KMLB route.
Just shows what you can do with third world corruption. :shakehead: I think you are being a bit harsh; A satellite view from last month shows the apron packed with seven assorted GA types, two biz-jets, and six (out of 8) MiG-21 Plus one, two, three, four...five cars in the public car park.

I can recall as a small child often seeing this plane parked outside Butler Aviation at LGA. It always had the logo lights on and from a distance, the bunny kind floated in the air. I also have some slides that my dad took of this A/C going in and out of LGA. Pretty cool. Never knew it was only in s...Jump to post
