Bleats Incorporated

I don't suppose the fact that Gus came to CX from Down Under has anything to do with the bleating Poms attacking him????

APEC IN PORT MORESBY

Low N1

This to me says that the reliance of automation of systems has, and probably will continue to do so, lead to a loss of crew awareness of how the aeroplane actually works. The first

50 Years continuous production

Not many in civil service I know, but the Lockheed C130 Hercules has been in continuous production for 62 years and still going. It is without doubt the greatest airlifter ever built, bar none.
