Visits aplenty - depressing really!

I agree that ATC generally wants to process traffic SAFELY and EXPEDITIOUSLY.
So why the hell does Australian ATC make it so bloody complicated? It is not as though Australia has a lot of traffic;...

You can thank Sen. "Uncle" Ted Stevens (RIP)

I do seem to recall that at the time of letting the KC-46 contract, there was a great deal of angst that the Airbus bid had been the winning bid, until "Uncle" Ted Stevens (R. AK), who at the time...

What did you say??

Some things to ponder:
The A320 flight deck, whilst on the ground with A/C packs on, and speakers low, has an ambient noise level of +82db (and higher when there is audio output from the speakers)....

Just give me a reference

Me too - I can't think if any reference which comes to mind, except by way of a reference in a company manual, which can easily be set aside in such a case as given.

EOL (End Of Life) LED

According to the mechanics in my airline, it is an End of Life (EOL) indication (blue flashing LED), which signifies that nav light/strobe replacement needs to be planned within next 950 hours.

Whose STC will be be modified on?

I wonder if Precision will do the conversion? If so, the airframes should be good for about 27T combined on the main and lower decks.

It will be interesting.

#3 - cleared to land? Try ATL, ORD or DFW for both spacing and landing clearances.

Wait, Watch and Absorb

The heliograph flashing from Village Virgin is that there is to be an announcement by COB Friday regarding the current status and future of Tiger.

Perhaps more is less

From the SMH:
Tigerair ran at an $8 million loss in the first half of this year on an earnings before interest and tax basis, and a $36 million loss in 2018, adding to the Virgin Group's $653...

Qantas - persona-non-grata letter

I checked my archives - bugger! It's no longer there.
If anyway has a copy, I would certainly appreciate getting one. Please PM me with the details.

Seriously MAX

You are quite correct - Airbus permits only auto brake MIN, MED or manual (and selection of MAX for TKOF only).
From memory, Boeing has ABS 1 thru 5; MD11 has ABS OFF, MIN, MED or MAX.
And as...

Oh, you mean skidding and diverging from center-line? I understand the use (or not) of thrust reversers in such a situation.
I was referring to braking action as a result of the runway surface at...

Greasy - easy: Use ABS max

I remember landing in VABB (BOM) - always used ABS MED or if runway damp, wet, VCSH or RESH, ABS MAX; and, full reverse thrust each time.

Hi there
I remember meeting Vince in CKN circa 1973. He was operating a C182 for Cooktown Air Taxi.

History may need to repeat itself to avoid failure in the future

Not quite on-topic but:

In Australia, quite a few years ago, there were only two major political parties - Labor (a somewhat Australian version of the Democrats) and the Liberals (akin to the...

So who exactly were the crew complement?

I am a little confused: I thought the airplane was a B767, not a MD80, in which case you are correct - the MD80 doesn't have the legs for a relief pilot. BUT...the crashed airplane was a B767, cest...

Methinks the White Star Line ran into a tad of difficulty, circa April 1912, which would have dampened any hope of commencing a future airline.
