I donít think itís close at all. It looks close because the camera position and relative size difference of the B777 and B737. I think the landing B737 could easily have landed.

ATC Watcher, we talking about offsetting on busy airways once in the cruise, not in terminal areas. These busy airways are on routes to and from the Far East and Middle East where there is a high...

ATC Watcher, before the introduction of GPS, aircraft would quite often be a few miles off track. No one minded then. Airways were 10nm wide. Now with GPS,RVSM we have increased the chances of a...

DaveReid, random offsets will help. 1,2, or 3nm. And surely a few NMs won’t cause ATC issues?

Can’t remember what parameters the RECMD looks at. But I just ignore it, as everytime you glance at it shows a different level. It jumps around too much.

Concours77, as the stab seems to trim to full ND at a normal rate, I don’t think there is a mechanical failure of the stab jackscrew.
What perhaps happens is a breakout of the control yokes just...

Perhaps, the sudden dive can be explained by a loss of elevator effectiveness. I speculate that they exceeded the breakout force on the control wheels. Suddenly they would lose a good percentage of...

A squared, I believe the A320 test flight at Perpignan, France, was caused by water freezing in an AOA probe. Struggling to
think of any others.

Perhaps, it would be a good idea to put ‘stab cutout’ into the memory items for the UAS checklist on the Max.

So, are we looking at a UAS event causing false inputs into the STS? This puts in a nose down trim, the pilots counteract with nose up elevator. Without any throttle reduction the aircraft...

It’s quite common on the 777 for the centre tank scavenge to only scavenge into one side. Never experienced it on the -300, and with the earlier scavenge I guest the imbalance could be quite marked....

I agree, it is important to SLOP on random routes as well. They can also be quite busy and they’re probably being used in the opposite direction.

In my opinion SLOPS should be used on all Airways...

Ian w, I believe our current thinking is that after IGARI the satcom was off also, and only powered up again at 1825z, about an hour later. I think a massive electrical failure, mainly to the left...

Yes, CBs move along with the mid level winds 10000-20000ft. Worth knowing when you’re trying to track around them. Usually I find their drift is half the drift you’re experiencing at jet cruise...
