Unfortunately, this lose-lose Situation is getting more and more likely. j
I really really don't get why UK believes Brexit is a good thing.
Actually some JU-52 (not this one, though) did take part in the bombing of Warsaw. So it saw limited bombing use. It did not take part in the bombing raids of London. Would also have been much too slow. Apart from that, the Ju-52 did mostly fly Transport missions. However, while used a lot in WW2, i...Jump to post
Is this because of the crash last summer? It does not seem so. In fact the crash itself had no impact on the LH JU52 operations (Ju-AIR was grounded for safety inspections of some corroded parts which were discovered at the crashed plane and which could not be detected during normal inspections. Th...Jump to post

Apparently, LH has cut the Support for the JU52 flying for Lufthansa Berlin Stiftung. Therefore, the JU52 does no longer fly passengers with immediate effect.
A step that speaks for itself.

"Yeah the reports on that seem conflicting and I honestly don't understand why anyone but Iran would still be flying a 707." It was a Military plane.

According to the usually well informed site "Lufthansa Taufnamen" http://www.lh-taufnamen.de , the retirement of some A320s of Lufthansa will only start in 2019. Until recently, the site said that the retirement of some of the oldest A320 was to start in 2018. While LH is still taking deli...Jump to post

Thank you for the replies. Interesting to know. So basically a 1980 built Simulator might still use the 1980 gauges but no longer 1980 computers... so its an evolving system. Quite typical for the IT branch.Jump to post
Not trying to highjack the Thread but how are the graphics in an 1980 742 sim? I would believe its much worse than in a modern sim?Jump to post
Thank you for the kind reply.

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.

Generally, Safety in 1st world countries is great regardless of airplane age. The safety record of the 737-200 is nothing to worry about, even if it indeed is worse than that of newer airplanes. This more or less applies to all planes of that age. Modern avionics have considerably eased workload and...Jump to post

Fantastic machines. It feels a bit sad to fly them up as loss-articles. SpaceX is showing the way, but that would be a bit Overkill for SLS possibly.

You conveniently missed the point of mentioning that the EU’s own figures show that the UK is the 3rd single contributor to tourism within the EU.

Thank you for your replies!
What about fuel consumption differences and fuel during one-engine ops, to name two examples? I mean if a pilot flies a NEO and shifts to a CEO, shouldnt he know about the fuel consumptions, or does he rely on the FCS?
Many planes come with different engine options. The A320 is the best example, in principle there would be the PW6000, CFM 56, IAE V2500, CFM Leap and PW1000G available. While only few Airlines have different engine types in their fleet, some do, like LH or Germanwings, which operate CFM and IAE powe...Jump to post
