RE: BA 757's And 767's

The last info I read was that 34 757s were going.
I know of no plans to get rid of any more 767s than have gone already.
British Caledonian never had any 757s.
The Caledonian 757s were PEA, PEB, PEC, PEE and PEF.

If you needed to work on the top surface of the wing you would connect your safety harness at this point.

RE: L-1011 Startup.

Musang: The 747/RR does make smoke! The 211 is a 3 spool engine so has a lot more metal to get rotating than a CF6/JT9. Starting is slower because of this. Standard procedure when starting a 742/RR at BA is to use both ignitors but the Tristar only uses one ignitor. That's why the Tripe makes more s...

RE: Airliner Windshield Rain "Repellant"?

Airlines with half a brain have disabled the rain repellant system on all their a/c.
Spray the stuff on a dry windscreen and it makes a terrible mess and adversely affects the pilots' vision through the screen.

RE: What's Wrong With This Tail?

I'd like someone to show me which part of the Landor
livery includes the Union Flag (and don't say "the fin").

Some of the "world" tails suck but there are also a lot
