  1. If I'm making such decisions for Airbus, I'm not touching that deal with a 10 ft pole.
  2. We definitely need a "Get Off My Lawn" award.
  3. As a trainee technician, he may have lacked the experience and knowledge to make a proper risk assessment. It's a task that should require supervision.
  4. I thought Swoop was to be operationally independent from WestJet when it came to issues like IROPS.
  5. Reminds me of this scene. "Chunky industrial waste puke".
  6. Indeed, usually folks are happy to have enough room for their luggage!
  7. Time to add some shock therapy into the safety demo. Run a few clips of people flying through the cabin in similar conditions. Yes, I'm kidding but it's like people don't pay attention to such stories.
  8. Great idea. I’ve stood waiting at those carousels for a long time on several occasions.

    That’s a good question. It could be a demo but it’s rare that they’d waste a load of mud for that. As for the location, the guy who took it is from central B.C. so I’m guessing it was from a small fire at the base of a ridge that threatened some homes and a farm west of Kamloops last year.

    Over a dozen of them are still used as air tankers by Conair, Airspray and Buffalo Airways. Those massive prop blades are helpful in keeping the drop speed down during a descending run to the fire.
  11. Interesting, thanks! I read it elsewhere and assumed by the language used that the poster had direct knowledge. Then again, it is the internet!
  12. The forward fan is missing completely. I wonder if they'll ever find it?
  13. It's gonna take more than duct tape and Elmer's glue to fix that!
  14. That bump on the top looks like a "before" picture on Dr. Pimple Popper!
