Re: Boeing 777 and PW4000 engines

What about the PW4000 engine versions used on other aircraft, like the B747? Is the design of the PW4000-112 so specific this kind of damage can only occur there? The PW4000 installed on B744 are the original variant having a smaller diameter fan, 96 inches. Those concerned by the FAA Emergency AD ...

Boeing is recommending air carriers halt flights of B777s until the FAA issues inspection protocols, following an engine failure mid-flight. https://www.aviation24.be/manufacturers/boeing/777/boeing-calls-for-grounding-of-pratt-whitney-powered-777s-after-falling-debris/ ....

Re: OST 18/02/2021

OO-SSF operating as SN1154 is announced as Cancelled on FR24. Same on Flightstats.com. However Ostend puts it as Scheduled, arriving at 23:40. The flight was planned to leave KBP on 19FEB at 00:30. Could it be that by bringing the return flight forward, i.e. leaving on 18FEB makes it to be considere...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2021

Sadly, the ONLY Brussels Airlines flight leaving BRU today was SN9901 operated by OO-SFZ.
A flight of no return to the scrape yard.

And no incoming flight either as OO-SFF (DSS) ; OO-SFC (DLA) ; OO- SFX (FIH) ; and OO-SFB (EBB) are at their outstations, returning tomorrow.

Re: Lufthansa in 2021

Almost there but please little FIGAS, don't mess your landing and block the RWY at Mount Pleasant.
You're only 5 minutes ahead of Lufty and their diversion is, ... well non existant.

Inspection also checked the RWY after landing.
Quick inspection as the SIA 74 was 5nm behind.

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

I would take the information from the DH with a pinch of salt about this 2026 date. They also say that the tram 62 will bring you from North Station to the Airport in ... 30 minutes. The existing train takes 11 minutes. So 2026, maybe. After all we know how long anything takes over here. When JFK ma...

LN-RKM has flown 17 times this route since the beginning of the year. Covid vaccine?

Re: Sriwijaya Air missing after take off from Jakarta 09JAN21

Going a bit further in analysing the FR24 data, leading to a possible cause of this accident. I say again, possible . Nothing out of usual until reaching FL100 on a 047 heading. Then at 07:39:50 a left-hand turn is initiated, rather shallow. It takes 17 seconds (time to reach the moment they start l...

FR24 has released a more granular set of data. The graph below shows the altitude and the heading during the last 90 seconds of the flight.

Re: Sriwijaya Air missing after take off from Jakarta 09JAN21

For once I will disagree with you Crew1990. I think that a free fall would have taken longer, especially considering the aerodynamic drag applied on a fractured airframe. They were at 10900 ft at 07:40:05 and at 250 ft only 22 seconds later. That is an average V/S of 29000ft/min ! I know that the da...

Couldn't access AV24 for the last 20 minutes :(

FR24 is proceeding the granular data but the raw doesn't look good indeed, see graph below.
