Re: MH17 - 5 years ago

I flew into Schipol on the morning of July 19th, 2014 while on a trip to visit my relatives in Amsterdam. I will never forget seeing dozens of individuals and dozens more media at the front of the terminal. Many standing in awe and others placing flowers. When I placed flowers at the terminal that d...

Re: Aircraft Change on Upcoming Trip

Yup these changes happen frequently. Usually they don't really change the trip much.

3 years ago I flew J from YYZ to SIN. My flight LHR-YYZ coming home was supposed to be on the 777. Got swapped to a 747 and I got to ride in the upper deck for the first time. Best change ever!

Re: Is it time for Cockpit Video to aid in crash investigation?

The main reason I (as a pilot) am against cockpit videos started very shortly after the Alaska Airlines crash of the MD-80 off the cost of Los Angeles in 2000. It was only a few days later that CNN released the cockpit voice recording of the pilots fighting with the aircraft during the last minutes...
