15/15 flex - nothing wrong with full flight regime ATS so long as you can control it effectively! Regrettably the A330 doesn't have the CWS that the TriStar does, or so we're reliably informed. But 767 - no problems!!

The comments re WH are slighty tongue-in-cheek - as has been hinted at, it might have a few more technical glitches because there is no spare aircraft there - result, maybe a few more delays...

However, please be assured it is maintained and flown to the same standards as any other BA B767, and none of the comments have any safety implications! Please do not worry about your daughters' forthcoming flight...

Re:- WH and the MAN - JFK.

So Overstess, Soup dragon... Beagle knows about his business ? maybe because he spoke about "rudder doublets" - so it could be that we undertook the same course close to Salisbury, couldn't it?

And when I say that the froggies on the 2000 are on FBW, I know what I am speaking about - sometines they are on full manual mode, which is FBW, and sometines they are on AP, which is also FBW-related - any other inputs from you?

Yes, on the 707 with pods you feel a little yawing "smack" when the fighter disconnects - so for which reason wouldn't the A330 be suitable?

Just conceed that this 767 deal has been designed to transfer some govt money to BA, and save a very little bit of development funds as USAF would have paid for it anyway, and so everybody will agree, OK ?

1. No one cares about the M2000 and whether it is FBW or not - the discussion is about the tanker autopilot responses. The whole M2000 thing is a red herring.

2. The tankers will be purchased, operated and funded by as a commercial proposition by a commercial consortium using their own funds. The government will not be involved in the purchase - as if they care since BA was sold off.

1. See ORAC's reply above.

2. Not rudder doublets, I just know who BEagle really is, so I know he knows what he is talking about.
