Re: Updated: AS employee steals and crashes Q400 at SeaTac

I would like to see un-edited clear camera footage of him positioning the plane going inside closing the door....and then footage of the taxying and take off. Airports are riddled with cameras!!. There is something about this story that makes NO sense. Sorry, there are MANY things about this story ...

BNA has an announcement at 10am tomorrow. I have a feeling it could be WS to YVR.


Probably F9 related, they have had a string of 10am announcements dating back to last week. But I may be wrong


Awesome. Maybe F9 should go ahead and cancel 20-30% of these new flights to get ahead of the game.

Re: Updated: AS employee steals and crashes Q400 at SeaTac

Seeing the videos, I'm amazed how sim training enables a person to fly a plane pretty well on their first try.... David Flying a plane - especially on a clear day - is not that hard. Landing the plane is the reasons pilots are trained and paid what they are. You missed a lot and in the process - ho...

Re: Aeroméxico E190 Accident in Durango July 31

If it does turn out to be the result of a RTO after V1, the captain is going to have to justify why he aborted the takeoff when he did. It has to be something pretty serious or extreme post V1 for a pilot to abort instead of continuing the takeoff when you get to that speed due to the risk of an ov...

Re: Aeroméxico E190 Accident in Durango July 31

Thank goodness that there were no fatalities. I was flying on an Aeromexico flight whennnews came through. The suggestion is that there was a strong crosswind gust(s) that impacted the takeoff.
