I'd like to buy some shares in Boeing, but I'm not sure just how bad this is going to get for them. Then there's the problems with USAF tankers and Dreamliners.

20 hours, that was illegal under my old contract. The maximum duty time was about 16 or 17 hours, and that's not flight time, that's from check-in to sign off.

A flight that length can be...

Not the first time by a long shot. I remember QF in the 1980's lining up on Hughes Field, miles away from LAX doing a visual approach.

Passenger plane lands at the wrong airport after pilots...

BA 777 nearly supersonic.

The press foaming at the mouth again, apparently a tailwind gets you closer to the sound barrier.

I'll be interested to see the outcome of this inquiry, it seems that some crew are guilty until proven innocent while management are exonerated before it's even convened.

QF attempted to land a 742 at Hughes Airport in LA many years ago, the locals renamed it 'Qantas Field'.

Departed SFO yesterday, no VASIS, PAPIS or ILS at KSFO. Only G/S available according to NOTAMS is what's in your FMS.
