RE: MH370 Malaysia Airlines B772 Missing Enroute KUL-PEK Part 24

If the logic of hijackers was to stay undetected as much as possible and the plane stayed in the air close to its maximum allowed by fuel on board, it can significantly narrow search sector in Indian Ocean. Biggest probability would be the most distant point from the land... It's sad however that a ...

NYT reports of sharp changes in altitude and heading after lost contact. Was there fight on the deck?

RE: MH370 Malaysia Airlines B772 Missing Enroute KUL-PEK Part 23

Whatever technical situation happened, including possible fire of lithium batteries in cargohold, what would keep flight crew from setting the squawk into 7700 mode? Opposite to that, no communication, no squawk, no acars, no debris at the last known location, but presumably the plane flew further f...

RE: MH370 Malaysia Airlines B772 Missing Enroute KUL-PEK Part 23

Hi-jack could happen while food is delivered to the crew. If so, why the procedure even allows it to happen during a flight? Why the food is not delivered prior to flight and then door is locked up to flight completion? Also, can a f/a enter the cockpit in flight? Is there a code lock? If a f/a is t...

RE: Incredible 737-800 Overrun At Thessaloniki (SKG)

Could low fuel be a reason for fast decent and no go around? No flaps could be a measure to save momentum. Also it seems no reverse thrusters were enabled which is strange given the crew saw themselves in the middle of the runway at the touchdown.

RE: Incredible 737-800 Overrun At Thessaloniki (SKG)

Greetings from Russia. Checking the media, some info (sorry for double posting if was mentioned before). The plane was hired by Astra Airlines, Greek company, from unspecified Egyptian carrier. Astra in official statement claimed that responsibility for flight and technical control is on Egyptian si...
