Re: Alternatives to a new Runway at Cape Town International

Makes no sense to build a new runway just to replace the current one, why not build a second runway, wider and longer with a higher LCN, to accommodate the heavier metal... Not much difference in money to what is budgeted for now but a dramatic increase in capacity. there is certainly enough space t...

Re: Lion B738M aircraft lost height and crashed into Java Sea near Jakarta after takeoff

Any possibility of terror? How long has the MAX been in service now? This is a very new airplane, any issues that Boeing might need to give some urgent attention to?

Re: Light Plane down Bethlehem

Both occupants have succumbed to their burn injuries. Downwind takeoff will full tanks, not really a great idea.

Re: Seen at FALA (Lanseria)

hot damn... i just drooled all over my keyboard... Those rank #2 on my personal list behind the Commanders (I have to put the G450/G550 in third place, purely from a funding perspective)

Just for you 87J, sorry but it is only a 650B, but it is in your town just for a bonus.
That's just peachy! Hasn't Carenado made a Commander as well?

Re: Seen at FALA (Lanseria)

Its just absolutely heartbreaking to see JRA & JRB in the state they're in, I spent lots of hours in them back in the late 80's and early 90's chasing CB's around the Eastern Free State with the weather modification guys.

Oh absolutely!! Carl and I are both Commander freaks... The MOST underrated light twin-turbine ever made! I just read an article on the TwinCommander website about the ferry flight of ZS-MWT from Yukon to Jozi... Here it is: Flightlevels Online http://flightlevelsonline.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/0...

I made a quick stop at Lanseria around midday and caught some of the, I guess, late-leavers of the BRICS summit.

Re: Moré / Hoezit / Morning / Hosh Pagamies ... 2018

The bigger clusterf*ck is that the council dramatically increased the cost of water, to the point where my usage has come down yet my bill has tripled... So you think they'll bring the cost down when our water situation is sorted out? Never in a gzillion years! thieves and scumsuckers the whole lot ...
