The 380 engines are very laggy from ground idle. Using one to help the line up makes that engine wind up rapidly compared to the others. Not a problem if you wait for them all to match up at 30% or...

If you have a good career path, stick with it. Learn to fly. Buy an aircraft. Fly where and when you feel like it.

Haven't there been issues in the past with this sort of smoke setting off cargo smoke alarms. I have a very vague memory of that from 767 days.

Outcome, probably not a great deal. Mindset...quite different. One is "I'm having a play with the engines", whilst the other is "I have an engine failure".

I know what it is.

I just find it hard to believe that an A330 with about 5 hours to go to destination would have sufficient excess power to remain at altitude for 4-5 minutes. And did they have...

Well, you probably should do some reading on the pilots of Colgan 3407, Atlas 3591 and AA 587. The USA has plenty of good pilots, and no shortage of bad. Just like the rest of the world.

Four plus minutes at FL380, with one engine at idle. It's a pity that the report doesn't include a speed trace. I recall looking at FR24 a couple of days after this happened, and if my memory is...

Qantas do not wear uniform. How would that improve realism? It’s a pitch black cockpit, the other guy could wear pyjamas for all I’d know (or care).

From my reading of the graph, it should be 206 knots. So, yes, close enough.
