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 ...Jump to post
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.

Nice video of Kalitta 744 landing at MCAS Miramar.
You can see the newly arrived F-35s on the apron.

With the Europe economy in trouble, hard to see new routes.
Interesting would be SFO-SGN with all the businesses relocating to Vietnam plus an up and coming tourist destination.
HND has already been announced
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...Jump to post

The NTSB did briefly recommend increasing the currency requirements for the MD-11 vs other aircraft. https://www.wsj.com/articles/ntsb-renews-call-for-md-11-jet-safety-1397256372 "In addition to calling for installation of additional safety systems, the NTSB this month said it wants the Federal...Jump to post
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/...Jump to post
So how I read it is the applicable certification requirement did not necessarily change, but it was not applied correctly in the design. I read it as the aircraft met the interpretation of the requirement at the time and was type certified (otherwise, quite frankly, it wouldn't have been certified!...Jump to post
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) -...Jump to post
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...Jump to post
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...Jump to post

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?Jump to post
Maybe an emotional support coyote to address fears of animals for other passengers?

Welcome to the boards. As you are new here, I will try to be gentle in my criticisms. Firstly, the report itself is a potential minefield. I've only skimmed through it but several sorts of (accidental?) bias jump out at me. That's not your fault, and maybe I'm just seeing ghosts. That will be somet...Jump to post
This seems inevitable considering that both AA and DL have announced plans for a separate premium Y cabin. I'd assume this might be fitted into the 77W and 789 fleets. Sorry to sound cynical, but the very slow rollout of Polaris leads me to think that it will be 4 years or more before a premium Y c...Jump to post
