Re: Ten dead after King Air crashes shortly after takeoff

The article linked above said the aircraft veered left before crashing. Pretty much all takeoffs from this airport make a very quick turn to the left, so I wonder if the pilot was attempting to do that?

Re: Ten dead after King Air crashes shortly after takeoff

Have you ever seen a plane a twin lose an engine on take off? They're uncontrollable, there's no way to try and avoid something. If you had enough control to do that you'd have enough control to clean the plane up and fly away. Having flown King Airs professionally, I assure you they are not “uncon...

Re: Ten dead after King Air crashes shortly after takeoff

From what I can tell this King Air was on Planemasters certificate a Part 91/135 a Chicago based management and charter company. The aircraft was taken off Planemasters website this afternoon. Hard to tell if this was a 91 owner flight or a 135 charter flight, who knows who the passengers were? RIP...

I live about half a mile away from this airport and have to wonder if the pilot purposefully ditched into the hangar to avoid ground losses. Everything around the airport is residential.

I think a big difference is flights within Europe have additional competition with rail. We don't really have that in the US except in the Northeast.

Re: American suspends service to Venezuela

The dictionary definition of assault is not what courts use so it really doesn’t mean much. In most states, assault begins at just the threat of bodily harm, which certainly gunfire would be.

Southwest has a lot more room to move things around than American does. The perks of having an all 737 fleet.

Re: Should airline regulators consider grounding B737 MAX series

Sorry if this has already been discussed (hard to keep up!), but it seems like the EA flight had unstable vertical speed (which was shown in the FR24 data, I believe). Are there any theories as to what would cause that with respect to the MAX series planes?

Chiming in to say that I used to do Crisis PR for Boeing (at an agency, they were our client) and they were one of the most difficult clients to work with - so many internal edits and approvals that nothing ever went the way we suggested it to.

Re: Should airline regulators consider grounding B737 MAX series

Lion air would crash any aircraft type. True. They fly planes that should be on the ground getting fixed. Some of their pilots land on the water instead of the runway. They must be close to having crashed at least one of every type they have operated. Even if Lion Air would have crashed flight 610 ...

Re: Ethiopian Airlines 737MAX crashes enroute to Nairobi

The thing about grounding the Max is... then what? The engines are designed the way they are designed and the MCAS compensated for that. They can’t move the engines. So I guess the only solution is developing a better MCAS? (If that is even theprpblem here)

Has anyone here flown a MAX and could explain the differences between it and a traditional 737? I sat in between two Southwest pilots on a MAX a few months back and the only thing they mentioned was a longer start up time.

Now that many of the cheaper fares are sold out, a flight from Dallas to Maui is running about $800 a person, connecting through Oakland or San Jose.

Re: WN releases Hawaii for sale

Looks like the rumor about 3/17 starting service was correct after all. Not surprised at all by the fares. Their fares are in buckets and their WGA prices are always low. Most people won't pay those low prices.
