Who is still around?

Post by A318 » 07 Apr 2009, 23:37

Hi everybody, I was just scrolling down some topics and discovered a lot of new users on luchtzak since the time I was really a lot online.
Who is still there from the 2003-2004 period?
Last time I was here got the news that MD-11 is doing his dangerous tricks with a train now instead of driving classes by car :lol: , Comet is still around and as far as I can remeber Regi is one of the "old" ones. So hey, who is still here during these turbulent aviation times :?:

Greetz,

Erwin ;)

Well they say old aviators don't die, they just soar higher and higher.

I'm still lurking around.

Good to see that people care of senior citizens :mrgreen:

Greetings galore to all.
Aum Sweet Aum.

Regi is holding on.

But I have somewhere the impression that the influx of new material has dried up.

No mentioning of the latest helicopter crash at Aberdeen - which is so remarkable because a similar accident happened just some months before.

Nothing about the damage at the Belgian F-16 engines in A'stan.

So, come on guys, don't get lazy. It is better to post something with little importance than do nothing at all. ( I think )

I'm still here :mrgreen: Though I've just got a new job today and I keep having problems logging in so I'm not very active just now.

VC10 has decided she doesn't like using the computer. It had to go in for repair a while ago and she doesn't like to use it now in case she causes it to go wrong. I still keep her up to date about what happens here though.

It's a pity that Nat don't has posted since oct. 2007. Why is she still a member of the " Latest news team " ?

Because she did not send her resignation, and we still hope that her job will allow her to become more active again.

It is getting quiet after NCB left. If you insist I take over his role and launch an avelange of provocative subjects, so everybody is awake again.
It almost sounds as if I miss NCB.

I admit, maybe his ideas were so 'weird' but he made/started some discussions
that were intresting to read, sometimes checked luchtzak just because I was curious after
the replies.
We 'bashed' him maybe too hard, pity , but I never believed he worked really for SN !
In the end he made somethings up because he didn't find a way out (my opinion).

So Regi,if you want ;) :lol: :lol: :lol:

yes dear members, despite this is about aviation, I think that we as ( regular) travellers share the same thinking that it could happen to us as well.
Btw , the Thalys passes by that point of collission. Imagine, a Thalys that does there +- 200km/h, a bogie from the collision that goes of the track and we have a new Eschede disaster.
http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/ICE-Ungl%C ... on_Eschede
Rail travel has quite a lot in common with the aviation world. And safety is also a major point , even from the earliest days. ( with the first trains, a man had to walk in front of the train with a flag to chase away people and animals from the tracks )

Just as with aviation, many safety precautions are brought in because of accidents, too late in fact. Similar here where the automatic stopping system was not yet build in. The explanation for the delay is really dreadful. Not just money, but a combination of mistrust, politics, appointments, nationalism between several UIC members ( let's say the European rail equivalent to IATA ),... so...human errors. Not only at the moment of the crash. But years before.

Strange to see that the subject about Ryanair still attracts so much FLAK - despite Ryanair is not yet coming back to Ostend.
Quite similar with NCB who started about narrow bodies to Africa.
Difference with him is that I will not pull out by myself. If I would tresspass forum regulations and get a warning I would comply to the moderators reaction. I got a warning some years ago , quite in the beginning.
I think it was because I attacked somebody personally.

But if we see that it are just these subjects that get so much reaction and bring life in the group, should I not do it on purpose?
I dropped a little bomb today with that small line connecting the AF crash with the Vincennes. No reaction yet. Some people must be sleepy. :)
Waky waky !
