Don't fly into a cell when everyone else is taking vectors around it. Don't perform an emergency landing and tell the aerodrome and cabin crew that it's nothing to worry about. Don't jerk the stick...

The way it works is that the airport uses an event like this to raise its rates, then next year cuts the snow removal capability/deicing fluid, etc. as a cost cutting measure. Repeat as necessary....

They also saved a few pennies on catering. It was a bad idea; pitched as a "loco-ish" airline, Joon's longhaul part may have taken some of the holiday routes, but their European service did...

I'm not afraid to say there's plenty of blame to go around here. And I'm not afraid to say that the 737 MAX has never generated enthusiasm anywhere but the C-suites. And I'm sure that Lion Air wants...

Yes, on that previous flight, you can see the fight between manual electric and automatic trim inputs. In one 50-second stretch, the aircraft goes from 4400 to 5600 feet, back down to 4400, and up to...

I don't see the problem. The ATCO asked for fuel remaining, and thought he heard "54 hundred", which clearly could not be the case, and was missing the denominator. So the question was "How many...

In any case, the farms are further down. If you don't unstick from 16L, you'll end up in the Toho Shrine (http://imgur.com/gallery/kPojo). The farms are a little further down.
