RE: MH370 Malaysia Airlines B772 Missing Enroute KUL-PEK Part 13

This thread is going on so fast.

Is anybody reading this thread actually?

There are at least 10 contributions in the last 100 post that are doubling questions, that have been answered already or proven to be wrong!

It is difficult to keep track, but to read first shouldn't hurt.

I forgot to add, that a misunderstanding or a bad translation might have been at work when translating the military spokesperson.

The debris field spotted by another aircraft is rather interesting (see avherald).

RE: Why Airbus Keep Flaps Deployed

What is the OAT in <acronym title="Newark - Liberty International (EWR / KEWR), USA - New Jersey">EWR</acronym>? In case of hotter temperatures than 30°C it is required to leave them at 1+f after landing to prevent air bleed overheat warnings.  <img src="/aviation-forums/graphics/smilies/hot.gi...

RE: ILS Versus Visual Approaches

@FlyUSCG A pilot must have the ability to fly/land the airplane with its basics (pitch, power, visual contact to the ground/rwy,....). However you can't land a heavy jet by the seat of your pants as Zeke mentioned before. You need tools for that. And that is what he described. The other very importa...

RE: B. 777 Vs. A. 340, May I?

Two more things to consider: - The A346 is able to fly the L888 airway, which is north of the Himalya mountains. This airway makes the trip from europe towards the southern part of china shorter (~1-2h). That saves a lot of money.... - You don't have to wait that long to get an A346 compared to the ...
