Re: Boeing vs Bombardier C series must watch

Boeing has bought a share in Embraer, so maybe more name changes to come?

Re: Congrats Metro Rail at last a breath of fresh air

I don't ever see this happening even for cargo which is already palletized. What advantage would it hold to cover the expense of production and certification? :thinking: Anyways, if any coach/capsule was released to Metrorail it would be trashed non airworthy within a day. :burner: :burner: :burner:

Re: Convair CV-340 down at Wonderboom [FAWB] 10 July 2018

Post maintenance test flights should never have pax on board who are not directly involved with evaluating the maintenance. Maybe they were all off to Sun City for a farewell party. I still wonder if the outcome would have been different if they flew straight ahead and landed on a road or open field...

Re: Convair CV-340 down at Wonderboom [FAWB] 10 July 2018

The actual nature of the flight isn't clear. There were 19 people on board and suitcases noted in the pictures of the wreckage (test flight?) but if they had minimum fuel reserves then the plane shouldn't have been too heavy to not maintain altitude on one engine.

Very sad outcome, I wonder if it would have been better if they had flown straight ahead?

Re: RIP iFlyAfrica.info

I wish our members would devote a little time to this website.....The admin staff are keeping it alive while there is very little traffic. ... I'm prepared to post articles of interest for a meagre "yebo Gogo". We won't tolerate trolls of course but all reasonable content is acceptable.

Re: Cessna 208B down in Kenya - 10 fatalities

It appears that they were were well below the MSA for the area they were flying in. Maybe to the east of track where the MSA is 137 and 141. https://i62.servimg.com/u/f62/17/29/29/41/5ycac10.jpg Image from Skyvector Very sad, I'm guessing they were young pilots building hours? https://www.youtube.co...

Dream job for Happy Skipper

The Daily Mail Saddam Hussein's luxury boat has been converted to a hotel and recreation center for harbor pilots. Unfortunately not airline pilots.
