Same idea as going to the top of the Rockefeller Centre or Empire State Building, good view of an amazing city. But over here our landmarks are mainly older and not quite as tall as NYC, the surrounding buildings aren't quite as tall either, so we can get away with the wheel. Although we do have The...Jump to post

If I recall correctly, Manston was a designated abort field for the space shuttle, so the runway certainly is large enough for near enough anything. My only experience of Manston was about 10ish years ago, I had a return flight there from MAN on a Flybe Q400. Horrendously basic airport and seemed co...Jump to post
How experimental is your taste? Could it be found on Amazon music? I use the app on my phone for streaming (and can also save music for offline use), and when at home I just ask Alexa to play whatever. I find it's a great service, some of the music I listen to isn't anywhere near mainstream, yet I f...Jump to post
What did you have to compare it with, though? Good point. To be honest I have only owned Samsung branded android phones, but I'm more than happy with them. Slightly off topic (not about phones, but about large companies making various things), if GE turbofan engines are anything like GE lightbulbs ...Jump to post
I went from iPhone to Windows Phone to Android on Samsung. Samsung is the clear winner for me by a country mile. I think Airstud needs to embrace the change. Who knows, maybe in a few years Hoover will produce the greatest smartphone in the world. :lol: (Typed on my second Samsung phone I have owned...Jump to post
My biggest problem is finding the right size. 11 or 11 1/2 in Converse, 12 in Puma, Nike, UnderArmor, and Adidas and anywhere up to 13 in the "off" brands. Interesting, I find Converse run a bit small so I buy 13 in Converse and 12 in everything else. (UK sizes) Annoyingly, most shoe shop...Jump to post

With no phone battery to call out, I wonder how much trouble you'd get in to flip on the aircraft battery, engage the APU and turn on every possible exterior light? Strobes and landing lights on while parked at a stand would surely garner attention!Jump to post
I hope developers are already planning updated versions of their aircraft so I don't have to fly an Orbit 737 for too long! It'll be interesting to see what default jet aircraft are included. My guesses: A220-300 A321neo A350-900 737-8 Max 747-8 (I would be surprised to see them remove the default ...Jump to post
Depends on what you define as the "80s". I was born in '89 and have more in common with random 16 year olds than I do with someone born in say, '86. I think a lot of has to do with the A320 - the A320 is considered by everyone to be a 21st Century piece of technology. I don't think the in...Jump to post

Considering how they are using an existing plane instead of making a new one, I think this could work. That being said, I doubt a passenger 160 will be as efficient as a new plane. Development costs must go down from this, right? It would take a hell of a redesign. Of course bomber to airliner has ...Jump to post
Last night, around midnight, there was a noticeably loud hum of a prop driven aircraft over northern England. I had to fire up Flightradar24 to check what it was. It grabbed my attention because the noise was quite loud and deep, it sounded like something was flying over much lower than we're used t...Jump to post
They may have drifted off centre during the go around manoeuvre, who knows. If the visibility was so poor, surely they were much more likely to be on centre during the approach as they would be following the ILS. IIRC the Air Canada incident in San Francisco was a visual approach, hence the pilot's ...Jump to post
I’m wondering if one should avoid airlines like this not just because of the crew inattention but the stupidity of the passengers too. It’s interesting to note the difference in passengers by airline and destination and their behaviour. Maybe I will start a thread on it. Well, that would be in line...Jump to post

Not too sure about the Comet Max, though.
I find windows 10 to be far too system demanding. My old laptop originally had W8, granted it was a basic laptop just for using Office, but it can barely run W10 most days!
Good excuse to the wife to splash out on our new ultra powerful (for a laptop) system!
The 1987-88 period was truly the pinnacle of innovation in civil aviation. I'd say for pure innovation and thinking outside the box, the postwar/dawning of the jet age was where it's at! Aviation saw some huge leaps back then, granted some of that innovation produce some awful ideas, but some defin...Jump to post
One big problem: maintaining the engines up there is going to be a real pain. Especially when it's time to swap them. Indeed it would a PITA, but I wonder... if KLM had a bunch of these replace some less efficient models, could that saving not more than cover the cost of installing some kind of hoi...Jump to post

I would prefer shirts etc to be longer than expected!
Being 6'5" and having a fairly long torso compared to leg length I find myself quite limited, I have to look around for retailers who sell longer length tops. A standard length top will usually end up looking like a crop-top on me!
Hi guys!.. Congratulations! May you enjoy many clear skies and smooth landings. I mistakenly assumed they were in the US (most people here are), it is rare for people to have a private aircraft in Europe. And that's why you should never assume.

Hello all, first off I'll just give the usual obligatory apology... I searched a.net and Google first before creating this post. A random thought popped into my head.

I remember there was a guy who had the FBI investigate him for something he said on here. I forget what it was about though. There was a guy who asked some hypothetical questions about an airplane (I think he asked about a 707) crashing into a building - unfortunately, that was shortly before 9/11,...Jump to post
I seriously feel that such things should be taught in school (at least, they're not here in the UK).
I also rent, and I really should be an owner by now, but I wouldn't have the first clue about what to look for in mortgages etc. I have no idea about the buying process.
I understand about retrofitting, and I understand about the majority of passengers not caring about all the fine details. But what about those who pay for Business and First class? Aren't they usually attracted with the latest bells and whistles? I don't think you do understand about retrofitting. ...Jump to post
And remember everything is in Kilometers, not miles. Actually we have some weird hybrid metric/imperial thing going on at the mo. Things are sold in metric but speed and distance are imperial.
