hey guys and girls, I know this is rumour's network. BUT.... are we starting a thread every goddamn time there is a incident (not accident) In my time I had two aircraft comming home to roost with smoke incabin. yep big ******* deal but not worthy of mentioning on PPrune. Maybe y'all are a little sensitive since last 2-3 weeks with all the hoolabaloo and ACCIDENTS, but please, stop scanning the ATC websites for posting jibberish, ok?
