  1. Thanks for your support, I’m happy your company is honourable to its staff.
  2. You had me at the Moray...pretty much sums up how many of us feel. Great shots!
  3. I’ve been in the business for 30+ years, been through 3 bankruptcy’s, but have had a very lucrative 18 years at WJ. I don’t know what the future holds though.
  4. There is plenty of money in running an airline. There's no money in running an airline with empty seats.
  5. That was very informative and rational.
  6. I'm just spit balling here, so take it for what its worth.. China has taken a big hit from the US in regards to increased tariffs and the whole bring it back to 'merica' mantra. Russia benefits from the de-stabilization of the western world. The WHO always seems to ring alarm bells to justify their existence, The radical environmentalists couldn't be happier now, for obvious reasons...
  7. At least they knew who and what they were dealing with. I'm not normally the conspiracy theory type, but I can't help but think this is a manufactured crisis. The WHO, the environmental extremists, various governments (Russia/China) and all hyper accelerated by social media.
  8. Maybe they did the GA into the flock then....Lol No details yet as to the distance from the rwy or altitude. From my armchair I would continue to land if short final.
  9. 6 direct hits by Geese. A go around was initiated to avoid many more, as I’m told 2d hand. I dare say with the winds, temperature and less rescuers in the vicinity, a successful ditching in the strait would have been more of a miracle than Sully’s event.
  10. Do Flair crew do the grooming on daily turns?
  11. I thought it was a little heavy on the CGI, although there was plenty of ‘real’ footage as well. I really enjoyed the interviews and it was a bonus for them to acknowledge the women ferry pilots and factory workers.
  12. That was a lot of fun to listen to! Its not hard to imagine what he would have to say about the certification process of the max. Around the the 1:30 mark the comparisons of the later version of the 707 in reference to stalling characteristics is uncannily similar to what must have took place with the max...only it wasn't properly resolved. Thanks for posting.
  13. FBI? I'm not 100% sure , but I think this fiasco is above their pay grade.
  14. Thanks for the info. Is anyone aware of a lobby to change the age 65 restriction with ICAO?
  15. Hey Blues, was this info from the company or though a pilot placement agency? Thanks
