Wet Dubai

Some 15 years ago I was part of a service from Scandinavia to Dubai (and onwards) during the winter. I had three occasions to stop over in Dubai. On two of those occasions the cars were up to their...

Question Balloons?

On the other hand, it was remarkably like something three of observed from the office of a particular three engine aircraft (known as "The Gripper") en route LHR-FBU many years ago. It crept up on us...

Smelly Socks

I recall several entries I made in the tech log re smelly socks (whether old or new but unwashed I know not) when on the 757. It seemed to occur for a minute or two on the descent passing about...

Elephant in the room

Robots, AI, single pilots (PTF possibly even sitting in some warehouse in a dismal industrial estate in the back of beyond) is all very well (well, is it?). But would the public, even the sweaty...

Unexpected TOGA

I must agree with Lonewolf50 (post 881) about actions subsequent to TOGA selection.

During my time on the 76 I twice experienced inadvertent TOGA selection, once by myself as PF and the other time...

Thumbs down Idle

Many years ago in the halcyon days of flight deck visits, some of my children were allowed into my office. They went back to the "management" and reported "Daddy's sitting there doing nothing!" They...

Thumbs up Quite right

The crew was in line at a US immigration desk. The man behind the desk barked “What are you, Prober?” My rather startled look caused my F/O to step forward and explain that his captain was a...

Quote from post #10. "The 757 and 767 don't share a Type Certficate."
Spelling apart (see me after), All my recurrency checks on the 757/767 were done in either a 757 or 767 sim, whichever just...

Commercially it must be a winner if one can achieve commonality. TDRacer’s comments about the 757/767 are relevant here. I was current on both and found them to be two quite different aircraft – but...

Pages and pages of discussion have still not satisfactorily explained the problem. It is more and more starting to look like a questionnaire on an application form for the ETPS (with a caveat – do...

No pressurization on T/O

Having twice experienced no pressurization on T/O - on 757 due icing up of the outflow valve - not only are there warnings for this, though I am not familiar with the 73, surely, surely! the crew...

Thumbs up No(se) Wheel

Many years ago, taxying out at AMS, the aircraft ahead of us (73-200 IIRC) lost a nosewheel turning on to line up for immediate T/O. I called the tower and eventually (after what seemed a very long...

Never having flown the ATR I am not qualified to comment. However, the thread seems to have drifted to ant-ice in general and, as this is a forum from which, in the absence now of a company “horror...

11 m/s

I only experienced one ‘for real’ emergency descent on a certain 3 engined aircraft, the outer 2 engines of which could use reverse in the air. With Nos 1 & 3 at max reverse and No 2 at idle, the...

Clear to Land

In answer to Estoril M (#150), try LHR. On a clear night you will see lines of aircraft going back 20 miles. Having been based there for 25 years, it was always with a warm feeling that one threw...

We do not know where V1 was. Almost certainly it had passed some way back and thus there would have been no question of stopping at that rather late point on the runway. It would seem as if there was...

Dubai G/A (not)

Airmanship seems to have been thrown out of the window. Who on earth would command a G/A and not monitor the thrust levers (by feel if nothing else)? Further B’s training demands checking the FMA’s...

At any airfield where the inbound and outbound airway is shared, why not stipulate that, within a given radius, all flights will offset by, say, 1 mile right? (Or left, if you are that way inclined.)...

Having all these gizmos is all very well, but there is no real substitute for a good rule of thumb and a knowledge of the real (actual - not what they tell you) weight of the aircraft. I have very...

Sticking to the rules

Some (many) years ago now I was involved in a ‘fill-in’ contract in that part of the world. Though years have passed, I very much doubt that any attitudes have changed. The reason for our contract...
