Ok, I'm with you - I've read most of this thread and yes, the intent of MCAS seems clear. Perhaps I wouldn't have reacted if he'd said "intended to be a handling qualities function" instead of...

Thanks for your input, everyone.

I've always been impressed by ATC, especially when the Heathrow "floodgates" open at 06:00 (always sounds frantically busy in a calm sort of way) and I thank you...

There is no reason to be uncivil - or arrogant.

I think it's perfectly fair to wonder why two aircraft are vectored like that when there is evidently room not to. Is there not an issue with...

Yes, finally worked out Webtrak - there was 1900 ft vertical between them, not an awful lot horizontal. The A380 is so big (and so A319 proportioned!), it's difficult to scale between it and other...

Separation

I thought I'd drop this in here, rather than be flayed alive by the professionals elsewhere.

B-25 over London?

This afternoon, 26/08/16, I am reasonably sure I saw a B-25 Mitchell heading south over Holloway. Not one I've seen before here, anyone else catch sight of it? It kind of went nicely with the Dragon...

Sussex police quoted as saying "several casualties". This is a tragedy, I'm afraid. The reports of two cyclists killed and 4 cars hit are unconfirmed; it's not looking good though.

Hawker Hunter down at Shoreham

Twitter is full of reports of a Hunter down on the A27, two cyclists killed apparently, no news of the pilot yet. That's really sad for all concerned.
