Spectators Balcony (Spotters Corner)If you're not a professional pilot but want to discuss issues about the job, this is the best place to loiter. You won't be moved on by 'security' and there'll be plenty of experts to answer any questions.
At least one overshoot - and some very squirrelly landings - including what looks like a 737 yawing after touchdown. Having never flown there - is this airport known for tricky crosswinds or was this just unusual WX conditions?
Completely agree with regard experience is worth the reward. If my £30 flight to x European country costs £5 more then i'd be happy to pay it knowing there's someone with experience getting me on the black stuff in one piece
You get what you pay for and maybe you want to bear that in mind when choosing a carrier
That's about as helpful advice as suggesting that you wait until three back-to-back crashes before taking your next trip
John-Q depends on experts in the regulator establishment to assess and control safety. If you expect him to do it by innuenedo and rumour he will get so mixed up that he simply won't fly at all ... can you say
Funny how one group of 'professionals', (journalists and cameramen), leech off another group of professionals, (pilots, air-men, and ladies, of course).
Yet, the former, and their 'editors', cannot even be *rsed to get the continuity right.
If you were a freighter with nothing but the freight to lose go for it but when your carrying 100 plus pax you should have more in mind I reckon
Would be an interesting industry if we applied that theory. Freighters and turbo props would operate in hairy conditions, jets with 100 pax would operate in more favourable conditions, and 747's and A380's would only fly with a high cloud base and light winds......
