Re: Will there ever been a new greenfield major airport in the USA?

For SAN, that's pretty much impossible. There's not that many places to build an airport because of terrain and the city gave up on MCAS Mirarmar a long time ago. A more likely option is if Temecula built/expanded an airport as many people live in North County (it's pretty much equal distant if you ...

Re: Boeing 737MAX Grounding, General Discussion Thread, February 2020

The FAA all of a sudden seems to have a change of heart and wants to cooperate to get the Max flying again. I wonder if the president told them to straighten up or there would be consequences. I could see Trump losing confidence and bringing in military officials to temporarily lead the FAA and get...

Re: LAX congestion getting out of control?

The reason LAX is very efficient from ATC perspective is that they are generally able to operate independent arrival and departure streams for each runway complex and avoid having flights crossover. For example departures to the north will use the north complex while ones to the south or eastward t...

Re: MD-11 Safety Discussion

This is an interesting read. I'm sure the primary reason that more passenger airlines got rid of MD-11s was purely economic. It wasn't exactly the most efficient and MD didn't/couldn't do anything to improve it - which is why they eventually sold it to Boeing. https://airwaysmag.com/best-of-airways/...

Re: MD-11 Safety Discussion

http://www.mlit.go.jp/jtsb/eng-air_report/N526FE.pdf A very long read... Lets try to cut it to multiple choice: there were 3 MD-11 rollovers after hard landings, and only one of 777 after basically CFIT. Why is that? (1) - 777 pilots are much better than MD-11 pilots, so 777 wings don't break (2) -...

Re: MD-11 Safety Discussion

WRT the MD11, the rolling over on your back is the end of the same scenario. Unstable approach caused by too small stab and poor technique which results in hard landing, which beaks one of the MLG, which slams the wing into the ground which vreaks off one wing. The lift produced by rhe remaining wi...

Re: MD-11 Safety Discussion

One thing about DC-10s/MD-11s that I always found curious is the number of accidents where the one wing separates from the aircraft (causing the aircraft to flip and often burn). This seems to be far more often occurrence than in other airplane types. Maybe it's just the higher landing speeds and te...

So there are reports that each flight generates ~500GB worth of data. 1. How do airlines pull the data off after each flight? 2. What do they do with it then? (Dump to data servers? AWS? stack the drives in a room? 3. What type of changes has this large data set invoked on data analytics per aircrafT?
