Re: September 11, 2001 ... 18 Years Later. Never Forget!

This is truly a tragic day that we'll never forget. I wasn't alive yet, but the effects are still tangible today.

Does anyone have ATC recordings of planes being diverted on 9/11/01? I can find recordings of the hijackings, but nothing involving the rest of the sky.

Re: Delta's A220 fleet issues and outcomes

N103DU pushes back from the gate on March 13 then returned to it. Although it eventually did depart 3 hours late from DFW, it hasn't flown in the 4 days since. Obviously it's a little early to say it's been taken out of service since Delta has kept a few A220s on the ground during weekends, but has ...

Been a long time silent reader, but finally decided to start posting.

Re: Ethiopian Airlines 737MAX crashes enroute to Nairobi

Wow this is such a tragedy. The resemblance to the lionair crash is eerie. Both crashed shortly after takeoff, both possibly had unreliable airspeed, and both were unable to maintain altitude. My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families.

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 still young to develop issues on their own (only 1 month in service). Wait a few month...

I was on N103DU today. Pilot came out to the boarding area and announced that the lavs (all 3) wouldn't be functional until 16,000 feet due to some kind of a pressure issue with all the toilets. Not a big deal I guess, just a mild inconvenience. Most likely the vacuum generator wasn't functioning. ...
