Nastiest Aircraft

Who do you think has the absolutely nastiest airplanes? My vote...PIA!!! I am dispatcher at MAN and I watch the a/c cleaners go on the airplane in protective suits. You can smell the plane interiors halfway down the jetway and it is a known fact here at MAN that their aircraft have a serious problem...

RE: My Truck Driving Licence!

Before I moved to the UK I was a long haul owner operator in the States. I most recently had a 1999 Peterbilt 379 and was leased to Transcarriers out of Memphis. First love was always aviation though. After a short stint with Soutwest and several years in the US Air Force, I decided to get back into...

RE: Delta's MD11?

I just noticed that in the last few weeks, Delta has replaced the ATL-MAN route with MD-11's instead of 772's...A shame really. I am a dispatcher at MAN and I can tell you for a fact that the load factors were much better with the triple sevens. Creature comforts DO in fact sell seats.... <br><cente...

The rippling is normal in all aircraft. It is caused by the a/c relatively quick ascents and descents in and out of cold/warm air. As the air warms, the metal expands and vice versa as it encounters cold air.
