It may be a 707 but it does not appear to be TWA. TWA had twin red stripes that got lower and thicker as they wrapped around the rear of the plane. This plane seems to have a single red stripe that is the same thickness and does not wrap around the fuselage. When looking at the fireball photo, whic...Jump to post
The vantage point was just behind the pilots. So thus, these poor passengers watched themselves go down to their deaths and the pilots fighting to the end. It's not an absolute certainty since electrical power was lost with the engine's separation. However, it is known that the DFDR recorded the 31...Jump to post

Also, the total flight hours sound low for both of them. Total time at AA, perhaps? For the FO perhaps, but for the Captain there must be a mistake somewhere in the data, because being employed by AA since 1966 and type rated for all these types and with so few hours...

The DC-10 crash was poor airmanship. By all means when a go around is called, honor it if fuel and conditions permit for sure.

Thanks for sharing. I remember seeing photos of it when years ago I searched for clues as in to what circumstances AA DBR two DC-10-30s during the early '90s.Jump to post
Those photos are even more chilling than the other ones, especially the one showing the moment the plane contacts the ground :( https://www.chicagomag.com/images/2019/0519/C201905-Ghosts-of-Flight-191-crash-sequence.jpg First time I see these pictures.

AA 191 was, thankfully, the last DC-10 crash which could be pinned on "the design" of the aircraft. All subsequent accidents were not related to its design; however United 232 is kind of a gray area on this matter. I don't consider UA232 in a gray area. Even if the starting point of the a...Jump to post
I remember seeing these two photos (dating from 2003 & 2005 respectively), probably in 2005, and I also remember telling myself that's a lot of runways for what looks like a rather sleepy airport.

The MIA-LGW route was transferred to sister Texas air Corp carrier CO along with a DC-10. Eastern used the remaining DC-10s to operate MIA-EZE-SCL which switched to MIA-GIG-EZE.

I guess, if the deal is concluded, TS' A333s will be retired, except perhaps one that could be transferred to Mainline. Curious why? Because it's a -343 whereas the others are -342.

Several of the A332's are already pushing 20. And? You know, it's more a matter of number of cycles and flying hours (and maintenance) than how many years have elapsed since an aircraft was manufactured. For instance, one of TS' A310 is already over 30, so pushing 20 leaves a lot of time before ret...Jump to post

Currently, Corsair's B747 F-HSUN is overflying Western Russia on an eastern heading. It's not very common to see them flying in that part of the world.

But we are talking about 7 flights in a row over the course of 3 weeks or so taking this very same route but the reverse flight is just a straight path between the two cities.
But then on the BGO - KEF route it's the "normal" routing. What do you think? What could possibly make flights following a pretty straight forward path from A to B or instead follow a much less straight forward routing? Anything?
