The MAX doesn't have the pickle fork problems because Boeing changed the manufacturer of the forks with or shortly before the MAX.

There won‘t be distances in the manual for TW much higher than allowed.

However, with 3000m I am sure it would have worked using all of the runway. They left the runway with around 60kt. 500m more...

We can't trust either side.

However, if I would have found a missile part near a crashed aircraft I would have done more to document what it is and where it was found. E.g. a picture showing the...

The accident reports by the Iran's CAO are all done in a professional way. Therefore I am pretty sure they know how to handle a FDR/CVR.

1. After the missile exploded the search head will be gone. Destroyed, evaporated, whatever.
2. The search head would be found where the missile hit - many miles away (if it was a missile) and not...

Possible scenario:

1. Uncontained engine failure of the right engine (e.g. turbine disc, similar to QF 32). Unlikely for a CFM 56 engine but not impossible.
2. Shrapnel from the engine failure...

In the US there is no federal sales tax. There are different sales taxes in different states and they are handled differently (e.g. refund on export).

I also think that MCAS was never triggered in normal airline use. Day to day flying only uses a small, benign part of the flight envelope.

However, there might be situations (e.g. escaping extreme...

It doesn't matter for the AP because the AP doesn't care about stick force gradient.

Obviously it is not (yet) predictable, why these cracks develop. Also the number of cycles is not consistent.

Makes it a lot harder to set preventive inspection requirements.

Even if the area could be reduced - the energy of a released prop blade is so high that is is nearly impossible to protect the fuselage and passengers.

Thank you, that is interesting. So it was just the other way around. That also makes more sense with regards to the need to extend MCAS authority.

True. Reminds me of BA38 at LHR. Without retracting some flap they would not have "made" the runway but crashed into the ILS antenna.

It‘s done on the C-130 for max. endurance (not range obviously) as well. Of course only in pairs - usually engine 2 & 3. Used for example in SAR missions to stay with a ship in an emergency situation...

Even if the plane is operated privately the type rating is only valid for one year.

There are no operational requirements like a line check but the validity of the TR is the same.

I think nobody would disagree that Athens, 100NM away would have been not only suitable but nearly perfect (descent profile). Also good weather on the 22nd at LGAV all day.

Very true. That makes it even more interesting that in the SIM scenarios after the 2nd crash even one of the Boeing or FAA test pilots wasn't able to save the aircraft.

True, but still there are maintenance & dispatch requirements around ETOPS which decrease the risk of a 2nd IFSD while diverting (or not) OEI.



Of course not.
