There was a time when everyone used to work together to get the job done regardless and experience counted at least as much as qualifications. These days most employees are just treated as resources,...

Did this thread come to any definite conclusion about Tarrant Rushton's use for V-bomber QRA dispersal. My local friends say that 4 Valiants used to visit periodically and the photo attached clearly...

On a recent LHR-LAX flight with Air New Zealand I suffered the passenger from hell. Little brat in the row ahead without a word just leant over and closed my blind! This blind was right next to...

Not so much metal in the latest aircraft though, so unpainted composite would be the norm? Anyway, I've heard stories that corrosion prevention measures on bare metal cost the earth and negated...

Presumably it is to most airlines, otherwise they'd just paint every aircraft in white with no other markings. For me, the image should sum up what the airline is about.

e.g.

I find it utterly incredible that any industry professional would regard such a bland colour scheme as the way forward and a positive asset to the airline. What message are they trying convey here?

That take-off distance is totally wrong. I can't find the spec's for a BBJ but Boeing's technical data says a lightly loaded B747-8i or -8F only needs 6,000-7,000 ft to get off the deck. (approx...

My experience of BA pretty much mirrors most of the negative posters on this thread.

I've just noticed that the delayed 11.40am UAL125 Heathrow-Houston B787 flight is now showing as cancelled. It's a shame as this flight has had a much better few days for time-keeping. Presumably...

I'm just wondering how we're going to know if that fix did it's job? Do we have to wait for a thermal runaway/battery fire and see if it's contained, or is there another way to prove the...

I see the first 787 G-ZBJB is on its way to LHR as BAW787. According to Flightaware it's due to land at 11.54BST.

I agree with MARKEYD. It seems mad that RYR, with all of their commercial prowess, can't make a go of a single based a/c in winter at BOH. Even using a minimal based crew to operate some flights...

I'd hazard a guess that only the handful of people directly working on the testing and "fix" truly know that. The rest of us are basing our decision on safety on varying degrees of technical...

It was also certified the first time around for public transport operations, but this turned out to be misplaced trust. The fact that Boeing couldn't find the cause of the problems and went for a...

Two points on that:-

1) It helps if you work in the aerospace industry and have had close links with Boeing and one of the primary suppliers of the relevant troublesome technology.

It's an interesting point. While I'm happy to fly the 787 short-haul within Europe, I'm also more than happy to let other pax do some flight testing for me on long-haul over-water trips. I just...

Proplinerman -do you have any more info on that display Beaver, as it's not thought to be the original FAC108 aircraft? A c/n perhaps?

Interesting point about the cockpit door though, as a huge proportion of Beavers were sold to the US military who would probably have worn the same kit as the UK Army pilots? I suppose the problem...

Could anyone tell me why different coloured propellor spinners were used on the Beavers, as I've seen...

Totally agree PaxBoy.

I'm no fan of A380's or the equally uninspiring B787 and A350. In fact a lot of the interest has gone now we're offered mostly twin-engined cattle trucks that look very...

Any idea why chose to introduce the A380 first? I can think of two theories:-

1)
The A380 costs a lot more so BA would want to start getting a return on their investment quicker.

I just wondered if movements may also become limited due to high cross-winds and the fact that the old 23/05 runway(s) is/are no longer available? I realise 23/05 was only used very infrequently...
