Re: OR Tambo Airport Security Warning

I know of no case where a person was arrested after a legal shooting. Don't believe the press..... They are in the business of selling news, and headlines that say "Home owner shot criminal dead, SAPS took his statement and released him until the Inquest" don't sell newspapers.... Often th...

Re: OR Tambo Airport Security Warning

Not really correct, Raffles old chap. Having been in that uncomfortable situation, I do know what I am talking about. The wording is that you must "... believe that your life was in immediate danger". Now, the law is unable to know definitively what you believed, or thought at the time... ...

Re: Emirates - Air Seychelles Near miss 14 July

Ja Moertoe, that is a contributing factor. The primary cause was ATC not listening to the readback.

Re: Emirates - Air Seychelles Near miss 14 July

I suspect that the Air Seychelles guys had started the turn already, after hearing the ATC chatter, and then simply steepened the turn once they had EK visual, and the TCAS was basically unnecessary.
