Beyond the above, another good reason to earn a college degree is for Option B. What happens if you develop a medical condition that precludes you from passing a flight physical? What happens if the economy tanks and all the pilot jobs dry up? What happens if, after six months, you decide the airlin...Jump to post
There is no chance that this will ever happen, not in the US anyway. I would be surprised if we ever switched to using the word "decimal", much less changing the numbers for altitude stratums. It's bad enough they switched over to "Line up and wait." That's something you do at W...Jump to post
From several sources, photos of the wreckage appear to be red, and most are now saying it is a Red Arrows jet. From this link: https://www.dailypost.co.uk/news/north-wales-news/raf-valley-anglesey-crash-plane-14435702 It is understood the Red Arrows aircrew had been at RAF Valley for routine Hawk si...Jump to post
No, that's Federally mandated. Guide dogs are usually big enough to take up another seat. i assume the customer has to pay that extra seat accommodation?? There is no fee to fly with trained service animals (guide dogs, etc.) and you are expected to stay within your seat area. From United's web pag...Jump to post

This is an old cartoon from the winter of 1977, when Buffalo was absolutely socked with snow.
That's a known issue, I think it has to do with time stamps on the posts. The mods are aware of it - I know it's been mentioned here in the Site Related section previously.
ETA: Found the earlier thread on it:
The part that gets me and leaves me sympathy-less is that my daughter has moderately severe asthma that is usually fine but animal dander is one of her triggers.

I honestly doubt this was the reason. That incident occurred in 1971, and 727s have been used throughout the years even to this day. If he was the reason the rear stairs were canned, then you'd likely have seen major design modifications from 727s back when their production was still going. 727s in...Jump to post

Oh...and where can I get those Janet and 747SPs? You can get both from the parking deck - the Janet terminal and Sands corporate hangar are across Runway 1/19 from the spotting location on the deck. The Janet terminal is the low, white building in the lower right: https://photos.smugmug.com/Airplan...Jump to post
I was in NYC on January 15 and 16. I flew into and out of LGA, and saw Trump's 757 sitting on the business jet pad on the western side of the airport, not too far from the intersection of runways 13 and 22. That was the first time I ever saw it. That's where they would usually park it when he was i...Jump to post

How often do AN-12B's come into the US? Cavok Air seems to be a small charter operator out of the Ukraine, with a fleet of only 8 An-12B's. A year or so ago, we had two Cavok An-12Bs at the FBO here in CLT at the same time. Only time I've seen them here, so it was a treat to see two at the same time.Jump to post

Time for some computer chair air crash investigation. I would presume that the weather was not a factor (ie: rain making the runway slick). Fortunately no significant injuries or loss of life. The plane landed too far down the runway, possibly too hard and too late for a go-around, so the pilot sla...Jump to post
RDU gets a daily 772 from LHR. As far as I know, neither CLT nor PHL see AA 772s. I doubt that it's an equipment or ground handing issue, but maybe more of a logistical decision. We did get one today, AA67 from Barcelona to JFK diverted to CLT this afternoon. https://photos.smugmug.com/Airplanes/Ai...Jump to post
The airline is a charter airline named "American Eagle", not related to the American Airlines's regional carrier. They lasted only a few years, their fleet was comprised of former Pan Am and American 707s. Here's an old shot I took at JFK in 1981 of N402PA, a former Pan Am 707 operated by...Jump to post
Today American started CRJ200 flights from PHL into ISP along with the ERJ145 (2 times daily with each aircraft (4 a Day) Why could this be? Is the CRJ200 about the same size or is it bigger/smaller? Is that related to the Air Wisconsin flying going away? I've read that Envoy is bringing back -145s...Jump to post
The right side door on many aircraft is smaller for one. :old: The 707's had very short galley doors, people would bump their heads The right side doors are smaller because passengers board from the left.

I take the point about some rejection reasons being paired (soft/blurry) however I am curious about the logic behind a re -screen being the fairest way to judge an appeal.

Perhaps from the 1,000 AF pilots the President is recalling to active duty?
