Jay,

He has in all probability done more than you. The information that WWW has posted is good and we may all do well to wait for the AAIB to complete their investigation, that said, in the private forums there is a little more information and what WWW has posted in all likely hood is correct.

The Ontario Teachers Pension Fund may have to spend some money on their asset.

In which case I bow to his superior knowledge.

My experience goes back to the days of Robertsons Aviation who maintained my aircraft at Lulsgate in the 1980's.

WWW must have connections with my base at CWL or maybe Swansea in those days.

Whatever it is not good form to prejudge another pilots mishap.

When Bristol city Council were looking to replace Whitchurch due to size constraints they approached The Bristol Aeroplane Company to relocate to Filton and were told that they could not mix a manufacturing plant with a commercial airport and refused Bristol City's request, that's why it went to Lulsgate.

I personally believe it should have gone to Weston Super Mare, plenty of space, but foggy at times.

There was talk years ago that the runway at Weston super mare would be used for mail and freight flights. They could have extended the runway at the northern end with no problems as it was open countryside. It could not be done now as a new road built right down the middle which the road not open yet, but a lot of building with houses and industry off of the runway.

The bmi ballast barrows were the E135s.
There also could have been an issue with the nose wheel tiller, insufficient downward pressure and the nose wheel steering inop happens if turning the handle.
The reversers were fitted on a couple of leased machines but were neither trained for or use mandated as the brake wear was considered higher. Carbon brake wear more when cold and reverser use reduced warm up.

Either way, i will be interested to note the findings. The crew have been hammered on duty hours lately by all accounts...thanks to EASA

TUI etc

TUI will be restarting Tunisia (Enfidha) from May this year from Gatwick, Manchester, Birmingham and Bristol. BRS will have a weekly Tuesday rotation commencing 1 May.

In summer 2018 TUI will have 2 x B 757, 2 x B 738 (+ 1 from 2017) based with 1 x B 788 part-based for four days each week. There is still a need for at least three non-based or third party aircraft to fulfil the remainder of the timetable.

Thomas Cook is adding a third based aircraft (an A 320 likely to be third party) to join its 2 x A321s and easyJet is introducing its customary annual additional based aircraft (the 15th), with a 16th needed for August according to the timetables.

From speaking with airport management at a recent master plan consultation drop-in event it seems that 2018 ought to see circa 8.7 million passengers. This will be a smaller increase (about 450,000) than the last three years that have seen annual passenger numbers rise from 6.3 million to over 8.2 million this year.

The management people to whom I spoke are adamant that there is no need for a runway extension and that it will not feature in the new master plan consultation. Only time will tell whether this turns out to be a wise decision.

The owners are probably wary after the runway extension at BHX which has proved to be problematic, and unnecessary.

easyJet A320 neo

An easyJet A320 neo is currently operating out of BRS.

G-UZHC operated GLA-BRS yesterday afternoon having flown LGW-GLA and was swapped with a BRS 320 that had operated BRS-GLA.

The aircraft then operated BRS-CDG-BRS yesterday evening and BRS-AMS-BRS this morning. Currently it's on its way back from the Canaries operating BRS-TFS-BRS.

I am travelling on the Monday flight from Bristol to Madeira next month with Easyjet. I have checked in and been allocated seats 30D and 30E. On the Easyjet website the seat map shows these seats as not existing. I rang Easyjet and they said not to worry as they are using a larger aircraft but I am not convinced.

I read the A319 has 156 seats and the A320 has two versions with 180 seats and 186 seats. Looks like only the A320 186 seat version has 30D and 30E seating. Is this correct? Can I find out the exact aircraft type in advance? Don’t want to be denied boarding due to an over booked flight. Thanks for any help.

AAIB on BMI excursion

AAIB February bulletins are out, and no mention of the BMI accident investigation. There's obviously more to it than a simple excursion .

I think you might have made a typo. It's Dave Lees and he will take up his position on 1 August this year.
