Re: 04/03/2010: Emergency Landing at BRU!

An avro has NO dumping capability, and I doubt there was smoke in the cabin.... with smoke in the cabin you would not perform the whole flight but divert immediatly to a alternate airfield.
my 5 cents... :D
On the other hand maybe the smoke came right at the end of the flight.....

Re: Pictures of first B747-400F for Cargo B

I think you got some wrong info somewhere, Cargo B does not fly with B747-400ERF but with 747-400F.
The picture you showed of OO-CBD is JAKZ10 or LN1418. which is the 2nd last 747-400 ever build. ;)

on A319/330 ok might be , but thats only a small portion of SN most of their pilots will never fly the A319/330. And when you compare this salary to the one you get when you go and work in a neighbour country of belgium the 6000 euro would be the FO salary and around 10000 for a capt. Until a couple...
