  1. Wait... isn’t that the exact description of a travel agent?
  2. Indeed Jack! I can’t think of a worse moment of crisis in Boeing’s history than right now. What a time to take over the reins. T9
  3. Re: 737 type ratings in Canada... They’re separate endorsements on your license Don. Like all ancient WestJetters, I have two of them: B73A and B73C. But, according to Transport, I am utterly unqualified to fly a 737-300, -400 or -500. Different type. T9
  4. Not sure about the USA - but in Canada there's three separate 737 type ratings: B73A (-100, -200) B73B (-300, -400, -500) B73C (-600, -700, -800, -900, MAX 8, MAX 9)
  5. Thank you for pointing this out. I also really enjoyed the documentary but the Hurricane was given short shrift.
  6. A quick online trip to Aircraft Spruce will get those puppies fixed up... or is it not that easy?... ? https://www.aircraftspruce.ca/catalog/avpages/garmin_gtx345.php
  7. Getting back to the original topic... ? The AT-6 and the A-29 are remarkably similar. I find it interesting that the USAF is buying some of each kind. A lot of overlap, no? Can you tell the difference?
  8. I listened to the transcript myself and it sounds more like "Lost number four engine". He made a couple of calls after that on downwind, too. Here's the audio:
  9. My FO snapped this in Gatwick this morning. There are a dozen or more Thomas Cook tails parked like this. I’m presuming that the tractors are strategically parked so as to prevent creditors from seizing the aircraft?... T9
  10. Very sharp Moon! Does the blister canopy on the top really afford a better view than from the flight deck? The two vantage points look pretty close together.
  11. That's exactly me - WJ flight crew with small children - and yes, I'm very interested! This almost feels like a WJ April Fool's post ? but if it's true AND they can pull it off, I think they'll have something of a hit on their hands.
  12. You haven't felt one of my crunchers. Just call me Tango "Wrong Hands" Niner... ?
  13. The cutout switches have been on every 737 since the first -100 took to the air in 1967. The location of the switches hasn't moved either.
