All of these caveats would apply equally to the 'rapid access stairs'. The point isn't the absolute achievability of a magic number of 90 secs, it's that, in the real world as in the test...

We don't know much here but we do have a bit more info than on the two recent Asian incidents. The aircraft descended at a steady rate in a straight line for several minutes until it hit the ground....

There must be a finite number of airfields that can receive a 777 with full pax & cargo load, even with low fuel load. It's hardly going to land on a grass strip in the middle of nowhere. So in the...

The photo in the AAIB report is of the cowls with the hold-open device still in place (according to the text of the report). As I understand it - from the report and the previous 33 pages of this...

I wouldn't read much into this. Witnesses often report a fireball in the air even when the investigation concludes the only fire was on the ground. Probably something to do with how the brain...

RYR to fire 150 crew at Hahn

1000 jobs going in total apparently. Blaming a new €8 tax. Anyone believe that's really the reason?

IMHO it's a pity the passenger wasn't arrested, since if anyone was indulging in reckless endangerment it was him. All too typical at NY though, to have a line forming at the door before the...

What did BA tell yesterday's pax?

Just curious to know what the pax on those 10 flights were told. That they were going to be guinea pigs on a test of the aircraft's response to ash? That diversions were likely if WW's bluff was...

I'd suggest it's more about French face-saving. Maybe we'll hear some details of the arguments in due course, but it seems a strange. IIRC the story is that a bit fell of a CO aircraft, wasn't...

DreamLand, your attitude worries me: "if it complies with the letter of the law it's irrefutably safe, even if the Captain thinks it isn't".

Seems to me (as an outsider) that there's truth on both sides here. Yes, it could, and does, happen to anyone; but it does seem to me that we read about it happening to Ryanair more than most. ...

Runway incursion at BOS

I recall one or two other threads not so long ago about incursions at Boston (edit - looks like I started one of them. No agenda here, honest!). Clearly a place to keep eyes thoroughly peeled.

Has to be nonsense - there'd be a smoking crater somewhere and none has been mentioned. Possibly mistranslation of 'lost the port engine'?

Just stepping back for a moment at page 93, I'd like to say that I'm very impressed with the way this thread has developed. Sure there's a lot of noise on it from people apparently following...
