Rotornut,

My personal experience is that the media world changed on 10th of September 1973, with an aviation story! That was the day that Invicta Vanguard GAXOP crashed on the Franco-Swiss border, killing 108...

If my memory serves me right, Birmingham had an S232 as far back as my FTU experience in 1964, I have no idea how long it lasted. Although the aerial was large, it was smaller than the 264, and had a...

Bad Attitude?

The controller simply underlined a taxi instruction effectively "...
