RE: AS Is The Launch Customer For 737-700 Freighter

The likes of DHL/Fed Ex want the B757, it's the ideal machine. The problem will be which aircraft they select once the last lot of B757 products reach retirement.

RE: LHR Spotting June 28th-July 2nd

1. Renaissance Hotel - good choice ask for a room with a view
2. To get to Myrtle Ave as indicated above there is a free bus service from near the Hotel (ask the Conceige) it's only 5 mins.
3. The runways switch over at 1500
4. Enjoy

DXB Numbers ok in the airport, photos rubbish due windows.
However, tab down about 3/4 way down this page and read " 3 Dutch spotters jailed in DXB" before you do anything

RE: Silver Airways Flight Schedules & Crew Problems

In Europe a break of 20 mins is required (duty less than 6hrs)
Food is fuel, no fuel and pilots make mistakes
Rather a delay than a mistake.
Sounds as though not enough crews is the bigger issue
