RE: How Do Luggage Systems Work?

Most times that an airline has lost my luggage it's been on a direct flight with no interline connections. Usually it didn't get offloaded from the flight and continued onwards. Once, on a direct flight with no onward destination, it didn't even get on the flight, or any other flight. It just stayed...

RE: 767 VMO / VD Question

Vd is the maximum demonstrated airspeed. The aircraft will be structurally safe at that speed. Exceeding that speed does not mean the aircraft will breakup. There will be quite a margin between this safe speed and one where the structure starts to break up. 471 kts represents about 25% more dynamic ...
