Since being a member of Luchtzak/Aviation24 I have seen very interesting posts on the Latest News Commercial Aviation forum. Good news - it was just reported that there were Zero deaths in 2017, the best and safest year on record!

Repeat: this topic is Trivia, not trivial news. But this story, which isn't trivial at all, doesn't really needs to be discussed much. Hence I've posted it here.

Illinois Department of Health:

...On January 10, 2018, a passenger on an international flight with a confirmed case of measles arrived in Terminal 5 at Chicago O’Hare International Airport and departed on a domestic flight from Terminal 1. The passenger, who was infectious on that day, may have traveled to other areas of the airport. Measles is highly contagious. People may have been exposed to measles if they were at O’Hare International Airport between 6:30AM and 1:00PM on January 10, 2018... Most individuals are vaccinated routinely in childhood and are not at high risk. Of most of concern are people who have not been vaccinated...

I was looking for a forum topic on the British Airways Boeing 777 that crashed at London Heathrow exactly ten years ago but didn't find a topic. In fact, there was a topic about the incident but on August 2008 I was doing some database works and accidentally removed the existing database. In one click I removed all the forum topics and messages that were posted between November 2007 and August 2008.

What a blow that was! Do you remember that ? viewtopic.php?f=2&t=23550#p192263

If “Safety was not at any time compromised”, why adopt a brace position for landing ?

Andrew Fisher, vice president fleet planning at Etihad Airways, has smashed the world record of flying around the globe in the shortest time frame with the fewest number of sectors. The previous record was set at 55 hours and 47 minutes, now Andrew has done it in 52 hours and 34 minutes (in four sectors).

Anyone else for an attempt ?
