    AC on wrong taxiway in Narita

    No NOTAMS or signage to indicate closed taxiway!?
  2. I hadn't realized that new evidence had been uncovered to prove the allegations made by Ms. Lewis were true. Hearing from you that that's the case, I'm sure the original investigator (with decades of experience investigating sex crimes in a certain large Canadian city) will follow your suggestions and implement all three of your recommendations. Could you expand please on points 1 and 3 please?

    Westjet pilots strike vote

    The Minister of Labour made it clear that pilots would not be permitted to strike. It has been made to appear to be an orderly process. The final mediated/arbitrated no-vote contract will be...educational.
  4. Kip, I hope you don't mind, I cropped video and uploaded to YouTube unlisted. Let me know if you want me to remove.

    25. AAR is the aircraft (?) arrival rate. 56 per hour is the best they can achieve, and anything,good golfing conditions included, can and will reduce that rate, resulting in ground delays and ground stops.

    This is a website I always refer to when operating or flying in or out of YYZ: If YYZ is showing anything lower than 56 in the AAR column, for any aircraft coming in from anywhere closer than 1500 nm, it's going to be a long day.

    Which aircraft do you think would be better suited?

    Air Canada's first 737-Max 8

    My understanding is that Transport Canada changed the Head Impact Criteria and Femur Load requirements (HIC) after Boeing, the FAA, and TC had established a path to certification for the MAX.

    Over 129,000 hours....

    I once stopped in at MZJ to take some pictures. Saw a bunch of tails on the horizon. Anyway, the reception at the gate was...unfriendly. I was unaware of the variety of tenants and their sensitivity to photography.

    Near Miss for UAL

    Likely explanation is that this is sourced from a Canadian news site. News sites frequently have hyperlinks to other similar stories embedded within or beside the story, because the reader of the story may be interested in other, similar, stories. Which helps ad revenue for the news site.
