Terrible loss. Poor crew. RIP.

Kind of puts that 727 orbit at Mogadishu in a different light.

I think a couple of aircraft flew to Victorville, US, in the past few days due to maintenance capacity constraints around Europe/Seattle.

Only quoting your post tdracer as you were the only one to reference 9/11.

I always wondered about those temperature claims made over the years about the days immediately following 9/11.

This^^^

And the only people that really need to know this are the BA/IAG Management. You can be sure they do.

Yep. BA/IAG are having rings run round them.

If they agree to meet on 27th - BALPA look good.

The pilots will get paid for reporting for duty on the 27th.

If BA don’t budge at the meeting...

Yeah, I agree. It’s how he speaks though. Bluster and confusion. Like the ‘18hrs work a week’ spiel he comes out with.

Really interesting thread. I’m in the market for a headset too. Had a DC H20-10 years ago but sold it when I gave up the GA. Back flying a few years now and have been reviewing the various DC,...

@thegreenmachine:

Is it the case they may give you a rebate if the fund makes money at the end of the year?

Also, (I’m assuming you’re a Union member, asking this) how did you prove to them you’re in a union so as...

Misparked air bridge.

The aircraft looks centrally over the lead-in line, albeit turned slightly. Either way, the air bridge looks out of place.

It looks like the crew noticed they’d hit it only at the last moment and...

Hah! To be honest, I've been following it from the start and thought it'd be quickly ended by someone else so didn't bother writing. I guess 14 pages is my limit!

Ok, fair enough. But then I'd be asking did they tanker round trip etc.

The key to this whole thread though is the fact there is 1000m of Clearway on Rwy 27 that permit the aircraft to basically,...

It'll be Aer Lingus, on a 'pound-for-pound' basis. Obviously BA will make the most in an absolute sense but Aer Lingus are very lean and have an enviable profit margin going on at the minute.

A Clearway aids/permits heavier aircraft to use shorter runways that otherwise wouldn't have been allowed, performance wise.

I heard that alright. When I worked there, he joined after I did. He was initially quite approachable etc. But alas, Ryanair's cancerous ethos struck him too.

Peter Bellew to return to Ryanair, commencing December 1st. His role will be COO.

Malaysia say his departure was 'unexpected'. Wonder how much his head hunting is costing Ryanair.

I would suggest you take this guy up on his offer. However, and I know he'll understand why, I would suggest googling RTE's contact details separately.

Wow, interesting.

There you go.

I'm not having a go at anyone. It just annoys me when 'regulatory bodies' come out with their catch-all 'it's for safety' :mad: and people just accept it.

I'd question that NATS video and the aircraft tracks depicted. They look generic, to be honest.

Also, a timely incident for the CAA on home turf around the same time as they release their report...

I love how to takes so long to apply reverse thrust and still has it selected as it comes to a complete stop.

I won't be worried just yet.

Fatigue not so much from constant repetitive forces over a number of years as one good hard landing recently. Going over a drain cover or divet on the ramp could be final stressor.
