I own a 1997-issue MD-11 production guide as handed out by MD. Had to go through a lot of dusty old boxes so I hope they are of interest to someone! I scanned both the AZ Combi and the MP Convertible. Unfortunately there are no drawings about how the Combi is supposed to look, but there are some con...Jump to post
If you think the current interior is bad, you may have forgotten about the interiors before they were refurbished! It was a complete embarrassment. And this was well before there were any plans of retiring the 767! I will sorely miss these aircraft however. They are comfy and just a nice change of s...Jump to post
They were probably at about a 3 mile final when they started the go around. Hopefully they will be hanged, drawn and quartered to serve as an example to other pilots. Almost making a big mistake will not be tolerated. That would really promote a safety culture and get to the root cause. I think you...Jump to post
Belgian media are reporting that VLM airlines has once again declared bankruptcy. They made massive cuts across the route network just a month ago. It's hardly the first time that VLM is in trouble, and I wonder if they will try another startup or finally give up. Personally I'm quite sad as I have ...Jump to post
Every time MOL or FR announce something controversion, the Anet Anti-FR squad starts screaming that THIS time it will surely mean the end of them. It never does, and it won't this time either! I don't understand why people here get so worked up about them. Just don't fly them if you don't like to. C...Jump to post

Can you even begin to comprehend the logistics of an operation like this? At my local airport AMS there are already thousands of people with airside access, and we're hardly the biggest airport in the world!
Skytrax should not be taken seriously. Though I can not comment on LOT Long haul, I would say their short haul product is perfectly adequate. The service is basic, free coffee/tea and a chocolate bar. However their BOB prices are very reasonable I think. The cabin crew is always friendly and WAW is ...Jump to post
Why would a possible shoot down be covered up? I think anyone can agree that it would have been sensible to do so. What could the Air Force possibly gain from hiding it? On a different note, I do feel for the guy. He was clearly not out to hurt anyone but himself. The ATC recordings are very telling...Jump to post
I feel bad for the little girl but not for the mother. In fact I'm willing to bet that all this would have never happened if it weren't for the "I've a camera phone so I'm better then you" mentality, that a staggering number of air travelers seem to have these days. She was probably alread...Jump to post
Would 20 tourists be allowed on a 75 year old vintage aircraft in the UK? I think not. Allowed to fly through a mountain range? Probably not. Accident avoidable. Probably. You know, ALL aviation accidents would be avoidable, if we would just ban people from flying on airplanes all together! Also it...Jump to post
Does anybody know what kind of issues are affecting Vueling's operation? They made a mess a couple of summers ago, when they planned more flights than they had planes for. You would think they learnt their lesson and have improved since. This is the same mistake they make every summer, alongside sc...Jump to post
AvHerald has posted that here are likely no survivors.. There's also an interesting NOTAM since yesterday about a cable that has been suspended between two points along the route.

I am shocked! Horrible, horrible news! I flew on her sister ship just last month. The Ju-Air operation looked very professional, and I was very impressed with the immaculate state of the aircraft.
It's indeed very intriguing. They were all the rage when they first started flying. The Anet trip report section was flooded with reports about how fantastic they were, and everyone was going out of their way to fly them. It was supposed to be THE premium airline around Europe. Then just the other d...Jump to post
The whole branding in the digital world is outdated and the overall brand feels old, boring and tired. That really, really doesn't matter for the overwhelming majority of European (German included) holiday makers. All that matters is price. If you really believe that the average German youth cares ...Jump to post
I don't think the controller was unprofessional. Annoyed for sure, but he accommodated the '104 as well as he could. No one can blame the 104 crew for not flying into conditions they deem unsafe of course, but I don't think that last remark about the "bosses" was called for.
I'd say a minimum of 2 hours for the museum, it's a fantastic collection!
I suppose Etihad's financial difficulties prohibit them from buying a place in the top 10 this year.
The majority of the AA Fokkers are still active today with various airlines. Helvetic and Carpatair have been pointed out. Trade Air is another operator with two ex-AA frames. A vast part of the Austrian Airlines Fokker fleet were all transfers from AA. They have in turn, now been sold to Alliance A...Jump to post

I've been following them on Facebook for a while. It's quite interesting, though most posts are about them seeking investors. That J31 looks gorgeous though, but I don't think it made any flights just yet. Also I'm amazed by how crazy people on Anet go when they are presented an airline that doesn't...Jump to post
Avianca A318 is the best guess. If it's indeed Avianca I think you're right that it's a 318. If I could right it should be 3 rows of Business and 3 rows of Eco ahead of the emergency exit, as is evident by the lining on the floor; https://seatguru.com/airlines/Avianca/Avianca_Airbus_A318-100.php Ma...Jump to post
MSQ has every sign in Chinese. AMS is getting there slowly with some shopping flyers and tax-return services being available in Chinese.
So I figured this one was interesting. Some lady complained on WN's Facebook page after being denied boarding because she was too late. She readily admits she was late too, but still somehow it's Southwest's fault. What's remarkable? In this day and age where everyone always blames the airline, peop...Jump to post

Blue Panorama's I-BPAC has been active around Cuba on behalf of Cubana. 734, apparently active as recent as two days ago.
