VH-ZND back in service today on QF10. Delayed departure from LHR this morning but on its way now.Jump to post
No damage found according to the tweet below https://twitter.com/FlightIntl/status/1226546060669181952 Update: Qantas flight #QF10 to Perth returned to London Heathrow Airport shortly after takeoff due to a suspected tailstrike. Engineers have inspected the aircraft and did not find damage. The flig...Jump to post
Didn't look like anything obviously damaged on its landingJump to post
Looking at the life feed BIG JET TV https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gln7T-xxE4k , apparantly the B787-9 yamyam just suffered a suspected tailstrike and is coming back to windy LHR. BTW 12 go arounds already, fantastic life entertainment. Big Jet TV always entertaining when theres a storm about. 2 x...Jump to post

How much fuel would be on board for this type of flight? Considering its been idling for well over an hour now, would they have to cut short the flight time? (assuming it actually goes ahead of course)Jump to post
Surely they could have checked the weather forecast rather than let her idle for an hour on the taxiwayJump to post
Lol. I don't think anyone believes this. I'm more inclined to believe it today than I did yesterday I think most people assumed missile yesterday but are having second thoughts today Second thoughts? I'd like to see a straw poll of people who think it was missile/bomb or aircraft related. As for th...Jump to post
Headline writers stirring the pot some and pointing out that it was a "Boeing" airplane: https://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/ukrainian-plane-180-aboard-crashes-after-takeoff-tehran-iranian-media-n1112216 "No survivors after Ukrainian Boeing passenger plane crashes in Iran" More l...Jump to post
Iran refusing to hand over the black boxes.... Oh boy.... My suspicions are leaning to this aircraft having been enacted upon by a malicious external force. Who do they hand them to? It crashed in Iran and its their investigation. You really think Iran has the capability to download data from moder...Jump to post
AA is saying April 7 now Which year? Boeing was pretty specific about RTS - sometime in 2020 Boeing were pretty specific about a Q4 2019 RTS for months. At the end of the day an airline press release saying RTS in April 2020 isn't worth the paper its written on. Timeline is totally out of their han...Jump to post

Shares currently falling today, the bad news keeps coming! Will it get to a point whereby the FAA will look to fully recertify the Max and not just the updates? Boeing shares slipped Friday after a Reuters report said instant messages from 2016 suggest that employees misled the FAA about a key safe...Jump to post
A 50+ year old airframe design bodged with new engines, software to 'fix' any handling issues reliant on 1 sensor. Effectively certified by the manufacturer and an under-resourced regulator. What could possibly go wrong. An absolute shambles that 346 innocent people paid the price for. As everyday g...Jump to post
Nice to see someone pointing out the root cause of the crashes - substandard pilots that flew a perfectly fine airplane into the ground because they failed to identify a simple fault and failed to work through a very simple memory item. There are many ways to describe the 737 Max, 'perfectly fine' ...Jump to post
Couldn't see this article posted here yet... Southwest pilots say 737 Max may not return to the skies until next March https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-09-30/southwest-air-pilots-see-risk-of-march-return-for-boeing-737-max Some quotes from the article..

Those agencies would be very foolish to withhold certification if Boeing fixes all issues. The FAA could turn around and do the same thing. Maybe the FAA would decide they need to go over the A320neo again since they missed things on the 73M. What you are suggesting is a dangerous game. Those agenc...Jump to post
If Boeing is able to satisfy all established FAA requirements then the FAA will have no choice but to put it back on the air. What you or anyone else thinks is immaterial. Hmmm... I believe the EASA, CAAC, CASA, et. al. will very much have a material opinion. I'm pretty certain that the FAA will no...Jump to post
