Unfortunately, "Waltzing Matilda" just brings a wobble board toting, bearded & convicted nonce to mind in this part of the world.

I'm sure there was video released from the Sea King at some point too.
Talk Down Landings None that I know of in the commercial world. There have been several in the GA world though. Off the top of my head. Passenger landed a C172 in Humberside back in 2013(?) after the pilot (ultimately DOA) died during the flight. Took an hour or so, several attempts, two instructors...Jump to post
EBA is an Electronic Brake Actuator - Brake Fluid under pressure moves the drum/clamps Fluid = Hydraulic.
The system is essentially the same. Just an electronic link between the pedals and the brakes, and the smaller hydraulic system is self contained on the wheel assembly,
Second: The brakes. I'm trying to get my head around how electric brakes would work. It's very easy for mto visualize howerful hydraulic pressure pushing stator disks against rotors. How do do electric brakes work? Are they mototized, spinning a jackscrew of some sort? If so, I would imagine those ...Jump to post
I am not on a budget and passengers sitting next to me were also more interested in the routing than in the saving.

London City will be unaffected.
Only a small percentage of daily flights on the rest of the network will end up cancelled anyway.

The flight deck doesn't need that info presented in that way.
Strangely, systems have evolved over the century or so of flying to provide the info they need, presented in the way it's needed.

AS261 weren't landing safely whatever they did.
Quite frankly they couldn't have attempted landing before the final failure, there wasn't time, control check or not.
WN1206 No idea but ATC can't cancel the flight, the airline does that. Perhaps tech issue arose, missed slots (or other form of ATC disruption) meant alternatives weren't viable and WN cancelled that SFO turn. That aircraft is currently positioning from SAN to SLC on a maintenence/charter flight num...Jump to post
The incident did not trigger a terrain warning or any safety issues, according to Air China.

Will have been one of the seven B757s. Which one, I know not?
757 fuselage is 12 ft 6 in (3.75 m) in diameter throughout. As is the 737's.
I'll grant you that the rear section may look slightly larger from side on but I'd wager it's nothing more than an optical effect (or confusion) caused by the wing box and/or fairings.
GPS does not update INS so that theory is more BS. You need to get your facts together before spewing out all this misinformation. GPS can very easily update an INS. It's called a GPS/INS system and they are commonly used in aviation (amongst many other applications). Not really true. Your FMC may ...Jump to post

The obvious part is that the 757 has an odd fuselage, with 2 different fuselage diameters ahead and aft of the wings. The A321 however has a correct, normal fuselage. Say what? I assume you meant Fuselage length fore and aft of the wing. More pronounced difference on 753. 2x Four Wheel main gear v ...Jump to post
There's no requirement for them to have a French flag displayed. It would be superfluous as "F-xxxx" does the same job. The Euro "flag" on the tail, isn't. It's an integral part of the design and has been there since the 70's. (Predating the 1993 founding of the EU: was EC, Europ...Jump to post
You're both kinda right. BA never regularly operated Concorde to DFW. Braniff was the technically the airline for the IAD-DFW-IFD portion of the LHR-IAD-DFW-IAD-LHR with the reg#s being adapted and with a Braniff crew. However the aircraft remained in BA colours (No Concorde was ever painted in Bran...Jump to post

I thought pre-clearance only stayed 'intact' only if the aircraft arrives directly at it's designated port of entry and any deviation (including other US airport) results in having to "re-clear".
In this case they'll be re-clearing at first point of entry.
