  3. Afternoon Falken The CDF and those elephant trucks came in at the end of my tenure deicing. The majority of my deicing experience was with a man in the bucket, and then when we went to the enclosed bucket, but still a two man operation. They are an amazing piece of machinery! Only thing missing for the operator is a relief bucket Looking back, it is a fascinating journey to have gone from on gate deicing using only type 1 fluid, to the deicing pads we had on the south hold and type 4 fluid, to the modern CDF. Also spent many a day doing 'hand jobs' removing rime on the gate as well as mopping cold spots to get the flights on their way quicker by avoiding the CDF. During consultations, I thought the idea of having a deicing pad at the end of each runway would have made for a much quicker operation, less line ups, fewer blown holdover times, and all with the same amount of equipment. It is what it is.
  4. No sir, not at all. As I mentioned to you before, we have a lot more in common than you think The Valkyrie is my second favourite aircraft. Now if our #1's were the same, you might get a little worried! Lol!
  5. Woxof said: Members 195 Posted Wednesday at 09:37 PM Time to expose the frauds again with their lie that the rich got richer: "The richest people on Earth are not immune to the coronavirus. As the pandemic tightened its grip on Europe and America, global equity markets imploded, tanking many fortunes. When we finalized this list, Forbes counted 2,095 billionaires, 58 fewer than a year ago and 226 fewer than just 12 days earlier, when we initially calculated these net worths. Of the billionaires who remain, 51% are poorer than they were last year. In raw terms, the world’s billionaires are worth $8 trillion, down $700 billion from 2019." Canada’s Richest Billionaires 2020 – Forbes I suppose the writers at Time has become politicized like so many others and want taxes raised due to their jealousy, the real reason they keep repeating this. I say, donate more. Mind you, most seem to be in the 99% club anyways with almost all wealth going to charity. Way better than going to the Trudeau/Singh coalition. Less taxes, less government spending, more donations. *************************************************************** This is why I have stopped posting here. Trying to engage thinking you are debunking my post by putting up information that is from a year prior to what I posted is just nonsensical. You can keep this forum until intelligence returns.

The Texas-based airline software giant provides ticket distribution and reservation services for carriers around the world. Sabre’s decision is the latest that has isolated Russia’s airlines since the country invaded Ukraine last week.
