Why don't you put some useful input yourself kevlarcarl/simonchowder/walterthesofty?

Anything you can contribute that's interesting? Go on?

Why this individual is allowed to continue cyber-bullying spotters is beyond me. He's been banned twice already and every post in here is just anti spotter. Just ban him mods come on!

For a 44 year old man he has the grammar and mentality of a ten year old.

Just what I'm thinking, Walter.

Calm down skippy, Im merely saying this is not really the best forum to discuss issues such as this far better on the techlog or engineers forum where the chance of uninformed knapsack and bino input is reduced

More like 40 or 50... JAL, ANA, Ethiopian, LAN Chile, LOT, Air India, Qatar and United all have some flying now.

Why are you even in this thread? I am sick of your continous slagging of people like me. I am spotter mate, proud to be one.

If you *really* thought that, one assumes you're clever enough to start your own thread in that forum and link back asking for professional input from engineers. I suspect your usual spotter baiting is the only reason. Every single post in this forum, clearly marked as "Spectators Balcony (Spotters Corner)" is patronising and detrimental. Given your past history of being banned twice, as kevlarkarl and then as simonchowder, I think you're lying.

You're just a little bully sniping at the margins Walter, haven't ever read anything from you to suggest otherwise. If I have time later I'll compile a Top 20 of your cheapest shots. It's easy to show your game for what it is. Playground nonsense from a bloke in his 40s.

Best ignore him, reacting only feeds his venom. He has some bee in his bonnet about me, constantly tries to get me banned for some reason ,thankfully the mods seem wise to him.

Actually, this thread did start on one of the technical forums, and was subsequently moved here by the mods.

That's how we managed to get to post #42 before we had your helpful contribution.

As per below. I had enough of this rubbish at school, I don't think we should tolerate it as adults. He's got multiple profiles and form and yet he still gets to wind people up with impunity. There's loads more if you look. He's an unpleasant individual who trolls *only* in this thread with language which would see him sacked if he was to behave like this face to face with any colleague. I think it's right we challenge him.

Whatever you charge some of these types will always try to avoid paying which is why robust action by the police is required to reinforce the point airports are not spotter playgrounds
http://www.pprune.org/spectators-bal...ml#post7403506
Sadly many spotters seem to think airports exist solely to enable them to collect reg numbers and do not seem aware of the chaos they cause

I believe now that any thread that gets moved to this forum is the kiss of death

Time for me to move on

You can argue forever more whether somebody is a "wum" or not, it doesn't alter the fact that the OP shouldn't showed a complete lack of understanding of the AD process and shouldn't have produced the post that started this thread.

Without question the spotters ( and yes, I was one once at Ringway) are definitely the best folks to answer questions on..spotting. The technical stuff really is definitely better left for the pros...

Reportedly, all the inspections had actually been done before the AD was issued, it having been preceded months earlier by the Boeing SB, so the entire thread has been somewhat academic (though instructive in other respects).

- it is a shame that 'us' didn't step in when this ridiculous thread was on R&N and get the

OP's title changed
OP's total confusion sorted out.
The facts straight

before it needed to come here. Industry does not need this sort of rubbish.
