Corporate cabin

Big corporations - especially Exxon - have a stinking record in more senses than one. This whole debacle has only continued due to corporate power. If there's continued boardroom resistance to common...

Strange Smells

Flight deck odors on 757s are far from unknown & have resulted in oxygen masks & a return before on BA 75s. The usual culprit is the well known engine oil in the air con system, which one 757 skipper...

Isn't it amazing how politics drives. The NTSB have had this flagged as an overlooked issue on their website for years - but what do they know?

Why?

"Why is this attitude being taken by the investigators? It almost sounds as if they are not willing to try too hard. Surely, they should be resolved to get to those boxes to try to determine the...

Anyone got an idea what percentage of the cost of this aircraft an FDR would run to? Seems it can kill as many people as a commuter liner.

politics

Politics has no place in safety critical industries or in accident investigations. Regulators & politicians are the ones who need to get a grip of this sort of thing.

And so does the ring of kicking tin.
