Hi Udo, always on tour.... thanks for the nice report, i have hardly been in the Scandinavia region (except for one short biz trip to <acronym title="Copenhagen - Kastrup (CPH / EKCH), Denmark">CPH</acronym>) so i enjoyed reading it!

Dear Toner, i will give you an advise: don't waste your time on this forum with this topic. I do understand you very well and i do share/agree upon many of your thoughts and ideas. However i have learend something in the West: you can commit any crimes you want but never dare to criticize the State ...Jump to post

Dear STT757 mind your language! you should learn to behave before you elaborate on this forum. reg...Jump to post
Charles, sorry i have better things to do than spend my time with someone who thinks all theories of the west can be practiced everywhere. You think that by reading some books and by visiting some countries you know how people think and act.
Have a great day
Hi Daniel! congratulations for your TU5 flight! A nice flight report, you are lucky to fly the bird. I only flew it twice once with Syrianair and once with Aeroflot. Daniel, did i get it right, you were allowed a cockpit visit prior to take off? Did you check out the toilets? were they the old style...Jump to post
Hi Charles, basically you are right about saying that most of the money that poured into Iraq didn't reach the normal people in bad need of it. However did you know that even normal phamaceutical alcohol which is needed in every hospital is banned as imports being -as far as the sanction call it- a ...Jump to post
Charles: every little boy in the world knows that governments only give aid when they have a special plan in mind. There is no charity as such given by super powers! this applies to all super powers. This means even your beloved US doesn't spend money if they don't have special interests in mind. Th...Jump to post
NoUFO Why not comparing Israel with nations like Iraq or north Korea? Why has Israel always a special status and has all the rights which are not there for certain other nations? why is it always a holy issue? At least Iraq and North Korea are not occupying other peoples land since decades. Brgds Am...Jump to post
no i will not start a new topic, this is my last post on this thread .
The simple fact that you say we are off topics shows how much you understand about the middle east. You can't tackle the issue of Iraq without discussing Israel as well.
Charles: this is what you read in the books but this is far away from reality. And now you seem to even put the blame on the Arabs! how ridiculous! The fact is simple: since 1967 they have not responded to any UN resolution. Nobody cares about that, at the contrary, this community always manages to ...Jump to post
attn. Charles: ... so Israel is of no aggression against it neighbors!!!!! yes, it only occupies the land since 1967... So Israel was attacked by the Arabs? guess why? If i come to your house and occupy your living and your bedroom and squeeze you into the basement and then you start fighting me, th...Jump to post
Hi Scotty, once again its interesting to see that no one really cares about the fact that Israel has nuclear weapons, most people will likely tend to describe you as a antisemit just because of criticizing Israel....

To all the guys who support the idea of disarming Iraq by force: did you guys know that other countries do definitely have weapons of mass destruction and even get US money support year after year?

well..... Yes you are right. Even though Loans are basically a good thing but at the end of the day one thing is for sure: no one- incl. the US- will grant you anything for free or out of 'Help'. Everything is just an investment which will pay off one day.
Well, the bases will not be closed for sure. The US will simply not give up such strategic points. Even if there is no justification for such Bases after the end of the cold war but this is a different story. In former GDR days (East Germany) the west never stopped complaining about the presence of ...Jump to post
Hi, yes there are flights between Damascus and Baghdad operated by private business men. They are using an old 707 of Gulf Falcon in all white livery. On some days when there is demand they utilize a 747SP (also from Gulf Falcon) In addition there is a 733 chartered from Malev also operated on this ...Jump to post

Hi it's sad to see that people over 20 have such thoughts....

sorry can only help with this. My Cairo experience is very old (some 7-9 yeas ago) i can only recommend: put in a new film so that in case you get into trouble you just give them the Film-Role.
There are many military involvements at the airport so be carefull!

the Iraqi Kuwaiti border was never really opened. Does this mean that there is no official statement regarding closing down or sizing down the traffic from /to KWI.. if not, i ask you why did you start this thread?
the original statement: is it true or not? is there an official statement stating that KWI A/P will be reduced in frequencies and if yes, what is the source of this statement?
Thanks Daniel. Well <acronym title="Dusseldorf - International (Rhein-Ruhr / Lohausen) (DUS / EDDL), Germany">DUS</acronym> sounds fine, though one should have a transit visa if flying through Russia (i will check it).

Re Doors: in fact many western built planes did also have this technique of the doors going up inside the body thus not out- or inwards: take the caravelle for instance.

Hi to all again it seems we are having a 'russian planes good or not' thread!
