If you have a chance to find MacArthur Job's masterpiece of investigation and explanation on this accident, I highly recommend you read it. In the chapter on JAL 123, there is a diagram showing the ground path as well as the ever-changing altitudes, all of which indicate that the pilots had almost ...Jump to post

Would be cool if N863GT could do a low pass near the Museum of Flight and be photographed near RA001.Jump to post
I haven't really bought any lately because they haven't released anything I want these days. Mind you I have over 100 of them. Fair point, same here. I've been waiting for them to re-release the Delta A319 and A320-200 in 1:400 scale. It'd also be cool if they could do a DC-9-50 mould and a 767-400...Jump to post
The Salty Simulations freeware 747-8 has a feature where it pauses upon reaching the T/D. It doesn't alter the fuel consumption, speed, and altitude like MSFS's active pause does, but it merely freezes the airframe till you toggle it off in the FMS.Jump to post
Where did you buy the plane. I would have just exchanged it, but that's just me. Nah, GeminiJets planes have been known to break pretty often, though it could really be any model plane manufacturer, plus the shipping process might have been flawed in some way. But GJ seems to have a knack with this...Jump to post

My bad haha.
Based on the commentary an SLC announcement is about as likely as an SCL one at this point
Not necessarily related to the trunnion door, but I found an interesting video on YouTube regarding MH370 and the final resting place.
Delta has inconsistent product just about everywhere these days. It’s not just ATL suffering unfortunately. When you have a fleet of 900 planes aged 0-30, you’re going to have differences. Same deal at AA, UA, etc. Yes I agree. It's not just an ATL issue. As you mentioned ATL has 717s, but so does ...Jump to post

In my opinion, bc Africa is a rapidly growing market in general, it would be wise of Delta to kick the tires on an ET partnership. While Delta’s megahub at ATL would be very good for ET, Delta has some to gain as well. Codesharing with AF/KLM works for some places, but as stated in this thread befo...Jump to post

Of course that feeling could change in few years time when I actually apply to college, but I've felt this way for my whole life so far. Boeing757100, your goals are admirable...Jump to post
According to routesonline, ET wants to codeshare with DL. Any idea when such things will be announced formally by DL? It'd basically make them the strongest out of all the US3 in Africa, so I'd assume it would be pretty big news if true. https://www.routesonline.com/news/29/breaking-news/299173/ethi...Jump to post
All, I'm about to start private pilot training in about 2 months, and I've been exchanging emails with my flight school whenever I needed to ask questions.

Thanks so much all for the answers. I have learned not to have the urge to "stand out" but rather to continue to work hard and study well.

0hAerqplane, the reason that this seating configuration would be illegal is that it would be impossible to get everyone evacuated from the plane under 90 seconds. Hence why the 787-10 cannot carry more than 440 pax. 440 people need to be off that thing in under 90 seconds in a dire emergency. Just w...Jump to post

It makes no sense for DL to operate a NRT hub with tag on flights to Asia. Better to codeshare with KE instead on connections to further Asian destinations. Additionally, DL did not have a local SkyTeam partner at NRT either. I would argue that it makes sense for DL to operate some tag-ons where th...Jump to post
Could this be another pilot suicide?? Rather unlikely if you ask me. Why should he/she have waited until the final moments of the flight to do something like this. Fair, it seems oddly early to make claims of suicide. Then again, a sudden pitch up and roll to the left seems like an inefficient way ...Jump to post

Honestly, until the pilot's contract is settled, does DL really need a major 763 replacement? They can easily use the 339/359 to funnel pax through JV strongholds in ICN/LHR/CDG/AMS and besides, a good portion of the 763 flying is domestic, so I'm not usre why a whole new aircraft type is needed for...Jump to post
These are two routes which have been beaten pretty hard to death in the DL fleet thread. Would be happy if they came true, but I'm taking this one with a pinch of salt.

Could they potentially be trying to get a stab at the India market? India based travel is somewhat strong out of ATL, and besides, from ADD, ET serves BOM/MAA/DEL/BLR.

Did EK ever actually express much interest in serving Atlanta?
