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

So the learning from this crash will be adding keys to the ignition for all aircraft. More like a code. Or each pilot gets a dongle authorizing for certain types. But then maintenance needs dongles (e.g., engine runs). Traditionally no key as what do you do if lost? Legally, the logbook is the key....

Re: AS Employee steals Q400 at SeaTac

Link to the video of the Q400 barrel roll. Look how close to the water it gets: http://twitter.com/CameronThomsen/status/1028157648158568448 Absolutely nuts :eyepopping: :crazy: 20-30 feet.... The video shows him banking hard after that. Could the fuel pickup for one side have gone dry after that? ...

Re: AS Employee steals Q400 at SeaTac

Can one figure out how to fly one of these with just a sim? I pretty much figured out a 172 without ever going on any sort of sim in my life and my instructor was pretty quite the whole first lesson. Of course they are very, very different but with months on a sim could it be done? For some folks, ...

Re: AS Employee steals Q400 at SeaTac

Looks like the guys in scheduling are gonna be busy. All the super glue in the world isn't putting that one back together again. Not my company, but don’t even joke about that.... This week was bad enough with east coast weather. I cannot even imagine.... OT: Now CNN has Schiavo on. This has offici...

Re: AS Employee steals Q400 at SeaTac

Does anyone know the fire danger level in that area? Is it high like in California? I’m just curious if the fire burning right now could spread to a populated area on that island. There is a significant fire on the island at the crash site, and there are dry conditions, according to local media hel...

Re: OAG Changes 8/5/2018:AA Adds DFW-CYS/EYW,Drops BOS-PIT,JFK-DEN;AS Drops SFO-IND;DL Loads MSP-ICN;UA Suspends EWR-OKC

AA started JFK-DEN in June. That really didn't last long. Also surprised to see AS drop SFO-IND. Not really a surprise. UA and DL were hurting them with walk ups as low as $135. UA added a second flight, adding too many seats for AS to compete with. Now look for UA to cut the second flight, as well.
