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

55462878_10210912883938115_8221781583208644608_n.jpg I don't know the airbus at all, but from looking at that picture, I fail to see any difference with the Max. An automatic system can and will probably fail at some time (it is still made my humans who are far from perfect), so when it does, switc...

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

737 MAX What you don't get is, I never said you can replace pilots by a computer, I said Airbus builds planes and says "use as much automation as possible" when flying the airplane meaning you can trust your plane, I don't know about other Boeing planes but, should not be very different than airbus...

777LR domestic in the US

Hello Dear Aviation 24 friends, During my trip to the US I had the chance to fly the 777LR domestic from Los angeles to Atlanta on Delta. It was a very pleasant flight as the 777 is much smoother than narrow-body aircrafts especially when you fly far in the back of the cabin. I was on an inbound fli...

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

For once I agree with President Trump! Probably because you know nothing about flying. Or for what reasons pilots sit in a cockpit. Your previous post about the MCAS says enough about your knowledge of the matter. And I really don’t feel like explaining anything to ignorants who think they know. I'...

Hello dear Aviation 24 friends,

I still think the wing of the airplane is the best IFE so I share this epic 787-8 Wing view with you and hope you like it as much as I did.

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

It was about time to ground all the MAX airplanes, this is a very big step for safety first made by China then followed by others. Automation has become a very big issue, how can you build a plane with a so called safety feature (MCAS) and ask the pilots to disconnect it in case it fails? What were ...

DELTA B767-400ER flight report ATL-DUS

Hello Dear Aviation 24 friends, Here is my flight report of the beautiful Boeing 767-400ER with Delta. I had some time off and went to San Diego for some recreational flying which was the perfect occasion for me to travel on two rare planes I had not yet flown; the Boeing 747-400 Combi and Boeing 76...

Re: Boeing 767-400er crosswind

Infact, on this SAN-DUS trip I had the LAX-ATL leg on a 777LR where landing was pretty shaky.
Trying to film from the back of the plane is never easy.

Edit: I record videos using Iphone which I hold in my hand.

Boeing 767-400er crosswind

Landing this morning in Dusseldorf aboard one of Delta's 767-400er from Atlanta.
Winds were 17kts and I was seated way in the back (Seat 43A).
This was one of the smoothest landings I ever experienced.
Enjoy!
