All the big commercial western jet stuff is not metric, but sometimes you run into the exception, and I question whether it’s actually a /32nd measurement…. I frequently see metric dimension tires on airliners from Europe etc… I’ve worked on some smaller German built piston aircraft and metric faste...Jump to post
Except the inoperative component would still have to be installed. No-go if it’s missing.
I suspect whoever stole it needed it real bad for their own purpose and took the first one they came across… assuming it was just the FMC and/or CDU.
Some MD-80 have the ice detectors on the wings because upper wing surface ice would likely damage an engine if ingested. Other MD-80 have one of two different manufacturers heated pads instead of the detectors making the detectors not necessary. I believe there’s one other system as well but I can’t...Jump to post
Check out autofuelstc.com. That will answer your question for US airports. There’s plenty of planes running around with STC’s for 87, but I’ve never known anyone to use it unless the trucked it from home… Many places in the US you can’t get ethanol free gasoline with I don’t believe any or most of t...Jump to post
Spoilers take roughly one second to transition up or down. If you were in a dead silent hangar where you could hear a pin drop, you would not be able to hear spoilers being actuated. They don’t make any noise. Of course you can hear the hydraulic pump being loaded and unloaded but that noise would b...Jump to post
.04 is a good buffer. Dessert cakes, mouth wash, and cough medicine… of note, .04 is the limit to turn a wrench on a plane too. I’m my experience with various U.S. 121 operators…. Company policy is usually .00.Jump to post
We were once stuck on the tarmac in a 744, and somebody came into the cabin by way of the nose wheel and through a hatch on the cabin floor. Can anyone enlighten me how that worked? They came through the EE Bay access door that is aft of the nose gear. Climbed the integral ladder into the passenger...Jump to post
It's a feature on the A340, it can be deactivated by the crew if the aircraft is light. If the aircraft is empty, it doesn't even contact the ground. https://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/airliners/6/8/9/0414986.jpg?v=v40 [/quote] I’ve never seen that switch in the cockpit. What panel number is it on...Jump to post
Zinc chromate (ya they still do it), CIC (corrosion inhibiting compound), paint, etc... Its good “clean” aluminum. As long as the aluminum isn’t all mixed up with the next lower valued metal you’ll generally get the top dollar. That’s my limited experience over the years... The scrapper doesn’t care...Jump to post
45¢/lb in my neck of the United States for good clean 7075 aluminum. 747 weighs around 400,000lb minus components, gear, avionics, wiring, interior etc... maybe 200,000lb clean aluminum left over? Just a guess. I’ve seen that joint down in Marana cut one up faster than you would think they could if ...Jump to post
Doing it by the book, how long to remove an engine? How long to replace one? Many answers there. Depends on the type of engine the type of plane, the components that need to be swapped from the take off engine to the install engine (QEC engines typically have most of the components on the new engin...Jump to post
The handle is free to rotate 360° when pulled partially out. When pulled fully out the splines engage the door mechanism and as the handle is rotated the door opens. So the only concern here would be: Can the airflow in flight be enough to pull the handle fully out and engage the door mechanism? Pro...Jump to post
