Re: Updated: Aeroflot 1492 SSJ100 fire at Moscow (SVO) - 40+ confirmed dead

They don’t have to be instructed. What if all the FAs die? The exits are briefed and very self explanatory. Move the big lever and GTFO Exits may be briefed, etc. but the last thing you want is for pax to open doors and jumping into fire and/or path of running engines. So, yes, pax are instructed t...

Re: Updated: Aeroflot 1492 SSJ100 fire at Moscow (SVO) - 40+ confirmed dead

People seem to think pax just jump up and run for the exits, but they have to wait until instructed to evacuate. In AA383 it was 31 seconds between the aircraft stop and the first pax on the slide. BA2276 took about the same. From the videos posted of this SSJ, by 41 seconds it appears the entire r...

Re: AA300 JFK-LAX Hits object on takeoff!

I'm a bit confused - reports say the plane returned to JFK, yet some here say the flight continued. Which is it?

Delta Airlines January 24, 2000

Not sure this is the right place to ask, please move if needed.

I am trying to remember what aircraft I flew on from Phoenix to Atlanta, red-eye January 24, 2000 (might have been 23rd or 25th). My recollection was a 727. Any way to verify?

Thanks.

Re: Ethiopian Airlines 737MAX crashes enroute to Nairobi

For those claiming the MCAS is at fault for uncommanded pitch down because it's a patch and that this could never happen in a FBW designed from the ground up. The below is an A321. Pretty sure this has happened in other FBW aircraft including A330 and B777. Just food for thought: https://avherald.co...

Re: Ethiopian Airlines 737MAX crashes enroute to Nairobi

How many Max 9's and 10's are in service? If any, do they differ somehow from the Max 8's?

Re: Atlas Air 3591 Down in Trinity Bay, Texas

Here is mention of another flight having pitch issues descending through 6,000'. Happened in 2001 and the crew were able to recover, but the NTSB apparently were unable to find a specific cause.

'“The traveler need only answer those questions, and we’re required to accept the answer,” Simonds said in an email. She added that officials don’t ask for documentation of the animal’s training.' That is a big part of the problem. Imagine if someone wanted to take a rabid dog with them and all that...

Delta Air experience

Just returned from four flights on Delta: PHX, ATL, MLB, ATL, PHX. Equipment was 757 (refurbed interior), A321, MD88, and A321. Good flights overall. Kudos for the free IFE (if you bring your own ear buds. Otherwise they are available for purchase). Not sure why, but the return A321 flight ATL-PHX w...

Identify aircraft please

I was going through some old negatives and came across this picture of my brother flying somewhere. This would be 1979/1980ish. Smoking allowed. May be a domestic US flight, may be an international flight. The two round can light looking things stand out. Thanks. Not sure if this will work: https://...

Re: Dhahran (DHA) Airport 1980's info wanted.

Thank you very much for the reply! My father worked for Aramco. I first arrived at DHA summer 1978, and it was quite an experience. I remember the ready, set, go mad dash to passport control. I had a magazine defaced with the big black marker once. It was a Flight International so WTH? Chalk was use...

Not sure if this belongs in this or a different forum - please move if necessary. I was wondering if there's anyone here who flew through Dhahran International Airport back early 80's?
