The CASA app may well have been full of holes, but I found it quite useful on a trip across Oz. I’m sure app developers will just be falling over themselves to write something.

I expect we’ll eventually get to read about Mr 320ECAM in a crash comic. Unless you’ve been there, and you very obviously haven’t, you can keep your comments to yourself.

I wouldn't be surprised if there is a tad more redundancy within the 380 pack system than that of the 737.

The question I'm left with though, is why did they end up with a rubber jungle. The...

QF30 is a bit of thread drift, but it's worth noting that its outcome was quite dependent upon just which bottle failed. Whilst they are all identical, they are in a couple of locations, and...

Well, QF announced a $A67 million bonus to staff, but then placed conditions upon it which means it's unlikely to ever be paid to anyone.....except management.

The 380 spoiler rise is quite slow, and does not happen straight away. In at least one of the videos that was doing the rounds the spoilers were fully extended when the nose went past the PAPI.[/left]

It was never replicated as a sim exercise. So, nobody failed it.

I flew it about two days after the event, once we'd heard the list of failures. It was interesting, but not outlandish.

I've never understood the logic of continuing if an engine shuts down and you then manage to restart it. It's not as if they shutdown as a matter of course. Something is wrong, even if you don't know...
