Re: Boeing 737 (MAX) news

Right. I should have said you made his article a click click attraction by only quoting « the 737 MAX is an unstable aircraft that should never fly again ». He is totally right (in my opinion at least) on the economic aspect, but his opinion on the rest shouldn’t be there at all. It’s definitely no...

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

At the bottom of the article is mentioned that doctors found inconsistencies in the sickness of absent controllers. I am honestly as surprised as you are as we have no idea who they would be talking about. Every controller who calls sick (even for one day) receives a checkup doctor. To our knowledg...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

How about SN needed capacity "right now" with CSA and Eurowings giving them the best offer they could get? That amounts to admitting that others are better than yourself at your core business: operating airliners at best economy. For a short-time urgency it may be the best solution but a year-long ...

Re: Trivia 2019 (miscellaneous news)

In one single day, this guy has shown his (in)competence in two major aviation fields: aircraft branding (737MAX) and firefighting with water tankers. "That guy" wasn't the first one showing "incompetence about firefighting with water tankers". Before Trump asked/suggested it, French newspaper Le F...

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

An acft that needs software to compensate the deteroriation of aerodynamics should never fly again ! Then scrap the F16 and many more combat planes! The F16's aerodynamics has never been deteriorated! But this is a little off topic... Actually its not, its about software augmentation/compensation t...

Re: Air Belgium in 2019

Just wondering: wat do the Hong Kong based businessmen, that owne of 49,9% of Air Belgium, think about their investment (10,3M) in an airline that has no link anymore with their country and that will not realize the initial business plan? I think they will be happy to see Air Belgium engaged in a p...

Maybe about time this plane is grounded, especially since early indications are again related to pitch instability after take off.
I looked at the FR24 and thought that straight away. The similarities in pitch and speed are very obvious :?

Just like FlightSimmers, probably... :roll:
Years ago, I even landed a 747... ;)
Colleagues who fly/have flown the 747 say it's an easy plane to land.
Have you ever tried the 757 in Trump's colors? :-P :-P
dont mention Trump, passenger will throw his toys out of the pram again ;)

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

Now UK CAA has grounded the 73M as well. Am I the only one in thinking the aviation authorities know more than we do? I cant be just public pressure?

Maybe too early for that sort of early speculation.
It's not speculation, early analysis of flight data show again oscilliations in altitude and speed, as with the Lion air crash. 346 dead people in a few months time with possibly the same underlying cause, that should trigger a bigger response.

Rumour: skyes to go on strike at 23h00 local?
According to vrt-nieuws: service suspended for lack of available staff. Reportedly, many reported sick.
Confirmed until 05Z, possibly longer if more people call sick during night/morning
