On the Fokker, you can't see the tail, as it's up high, so you might just get that deiced...

I think the driver behind these electric aircraft is more political than technical.
There's all sorts of reasons why battery power isn't the leading alternative to conventional fuel for aircraft.

To be fair to the Kazakhs, and I have a fair bit of experience working with them, they are very much rule followers, as opposed to rule-disregarders or ignorers.
I don't know for sure what happened...

Indeed, Cloudhopper.
Sadly, now 14 confirmed. Tragic.

Seems to be in three big chunks, and no fire which was a blessing.
Glad so many got out alive.
The runways at Almaty are very long.
It's a very fog prone airfield.

It may not be how things happen at Boeing, North America- but it's exactly how things DO happen at Boeing Brazil.

My own view is that if / when the Max returns to the skies, it will be just as safe, safer maybe, than anything else.

But that's not really the point, is it?

Airlines are businesses, and they...

In Germany, there was a nice line in military furniture available around the barracks, and the smartest piece I always thought was a jolly nice writing bureau.

But over the typical sector length, an hour or so, it really didn't make much difference.

I've always wondered about the An-148. It really is extremely similar to the 146.
Did they get formal permission to modify the original, or is it an original it's own right?

To be fair, if you live somewhere expensive, the money probably isn't enough to tempt you.
If you live here though, it's plenty!

The pay is around 7500 euro/month.
They also give around 500US per month for accommodation.
You can add about 1000 euro/ month to that, if you complete three years, so call it more like 8500 euro/...
