Re: Social actions at air traffic control service skeyes (Belgium) - possible air traffic disruptions

Dear mvg, I note in your long post above Quote : Here an Atco can work almost like he wants! With no consequence, he/she can give a plane a straight-in approach or give him 20 extra miles because he/she feels like, because he/she is not competent, because he/she is scared, and so on... End quote/ AT...

Kigali 1994-04-07

Please allow me to post this here. If one needs to link this to aviation let’s say that para-commandos often “go to work” by air. During one of my last trips to Kigali, I paid a visit to the place where 10 Belgian soldiers were slaughtered 25 years ago to the day and I wrote in the condolences book ...

Re: Boeing 737 (MAX) news

Production of the 737 MAX continues, despite the MCAS-related problems. .... Heading for a real estate issue, no? Where are they going to park all these finished airframes ? They are running the 73 at +50 a month. By compiling the data from Boeing site it appears that the MAX now represents the bul...

Re: The one and only topic on which runway in use @EBBR

No, they can still vacate via C2 as the SN below did minutes ago. About 1200m from TD. Screenshot 2019-03-31 11.21.10.png Screenshot 2019-03-31 11.44.02.png Alternately, use C3 for a safety belt check. Not sure you could vacate via C1 as you'd need to use TWY V1 which is only 20m wide. H.A.

Re: Anomalies in BRU-ANR-CRL-LGG-OST in 2019

Does anyone know why so many planes are parked in this area? Doesn't seem like it's a temporary parking space. Clearly the Finair and Baltic are moving passengers.

Re: Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 MAX crashes between Addis Ababa and Nairobi - Impact on Boeing 737 MAX

I often visit the B737.org.uk when I am interested in a specific and detailed technical issue on the 73. They have a fairly detailed page on the MCAS : http://www.b737.org.uk/mcas.htm My take is that Boeing as now long lost the "Pilot's airplane" attitude, claiming that with their product the pilot ...
