RathereBeFlying has it true for my money. Story falls into journalistic category of "too good to check". I would have thought it would stall rather than spin if it had been C of G in the matter, and...

Is this the same PCU implicated in the catastrophic 737 hardovers (Pittsburgh and Colorado Springs, others too, arguably)?

No, don't call the police if you should see her. Find her a carcass (dog food would probably do at a pinch) and wish her bon voyage.

Regarding the captain's alleged consultation with Nairobi before taking off, I know no more than what the rumour says, but it could explain one puzzle that I never saw any comment on. Permission to...

Dr Warren is justly celebrated now, but it was not always thus, and the conservatism of the British and Australian aviation establishments prevented his ideas being accepted. He never benefitted...

My point was simply that the US abandoned development of their own SST when they found out that the sonic bangs would be unacceptable. That, and the eye-watering cost, killed the SST project. In 1964...

I'm totally with Topbunk. Just a load of recycled tosh with a lie attached -- that they had new evidence on the causes of the crash. Then we had the sentimental ravings of Hutchinson (how does flying...

Why has there been so little comment on failure to request take off clearance?

This forum is usually full of praise for the AAIB's analysis but not when it stands in the way of having a pop at the French. Please follow the critical path. All that stuff about grubby French a/c...

Apologies if this is covered already but this is an extraordinary recurrence of a familiar problem, and it is common to MD11 and DC10. I was once told the technical details but essentially there is...
