Please allow me to piggyback on this thread since the original query has been answered. A week ago, I asked for help to identify a surveillance drone in the Military Aviation Forum but has got no reply as yet. That's probably due to the much lower traffic there. So, please bear with me for this litt...Jump to post
Its quite a common occurrence if one flies often on the same routes. I never keep track on the reg. no. but there are a bunch of TigerAir, JetStar and CebuPacific's A320s that I had flown, and still flying on, in the SIN-MNL-SIN sector. Also the now defunct Sempati Air's Fokker 100s on SIN-JKT-SIN i...Jump to post
Done as requested.
You are welcome!
SIN definitely deserves to be #1. My only major beef with Changi is public transport connectivity. Unlike HK's round the clock (albeit reduced quantity & frequency during the unholy hours) buses, SIN's stopped operating totally just after midnight for more than 5 hours. Obviously the ranking do...Jump to post
I don't even understand how Jakarta airport receive the world's most improve airport....

The only A330s with 3-3-3 I can think of ATM is Air Caraibes which shuttles people to French Caribic islands. There are a few others such as AirAsiaX and CebuPacific. I had been on the latter's once, soon after they took delivery of their first bird. It's fine for my 200mins flight. Not the most co...Jump to post
For that matter, the 779 wing which Boeing touts as its "biggest ever" -composite or otherwise- is a flat out lie. The 748 wing is a full 1000 sq ft/ 20% larger in area. The span has nothing to do with the size. That's no flat out lie. I'll grant you that its at most, I repeat; at most us...Jump to post
Hang on - remove the staircase?

I wish Airbus had used one of the consortium partner's names. Aérospatiale would have so much more 'flavor' or identity. Aerospatiale would make it too French, which I don't think the Germans would like that much. I would think they compromised on the Airbus name because it's in English which do no...Jump to post
Then Airbus would not be called Airbus but "Eurobus" or whateever .... From what I understand which could be wrong, the name Airbus was finally chosen because of some one-upmanship over Boeing. As such, the letter A is a must. If the Airbus name was already trademarked by someone else the...Jump to post
I visited the Singapore Air Force Museum recently. Not much to see as there are only a handful of retired military aircraft. Two drones were hanging from the ceiling, one of which is the IAI Scout. The other of a conventional front single-engined propeller-driven high wing monoplane planform got me ...Jump to post

The diplomatic spat has reached another level as Malaysia expels the North Korean Ambassador.
Also as reported earlier, effective on Monday North Koreans will no longer enjoy visa-free visits.
I remember reading in the mainstream papers (no internet back then and so no outright fake news in fashion) that "someone forgot to calculate its CoG" so the engineers had to add in heavy balancing ballasts to ensure a smooth takeoff. Can't recall whether there was an aborted run before fi...Jump to post

My experience in the Philippines is that, people do not mind when a 6th person squeezes into a seat designed for 5 on the MRT. That's still ok compared to 5-abreast on its public buses.

I was a young adult when I board my first commercial flight in 1979. Was asked at check-in "Smoking or non-smoking"? Of course I chose the latter, being a non-smoker. I remember looking for a separate "smokers' compartment" upon boarding and was surprised not to see any. I then a...Jump to post

Company rules are cast in stone. That's what people are brainwashed to believe but its generally true. However, how many realize that stones can be broken up and even smashed to smithereens?

And let's not forget that Kim Jong-Un is not an only child. He might have been favored for succession but he does have another older half brother within the elite.

Even Singapore Airlines which has ordered 67 A350-900 has now ordered 59 787-10 plus another 20 787-8/9 flown by Scoot. Just a little correction: SQ ordered 30 -10s in 2013 and will soon firm another 19. Total for SQ's 787-10 will be 49, not 59. Grand total of Dreamliners for the SQ group is 69, St...Jump to post
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's elder half brother Jong nam was killed today by female North Korean agents at Malaysia's KLIA. Who ordered the killing?

I believe the first batch of -10 ordered in 2013 will likely all be operated by SQ as Scoot still have 4 each of -8 and -9 on the books.
