  1. In 1890? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Morrison_(chemist)
  2. And this is why I’ll never get in a fully autonomous aircraft.
  3. I think passengers will happily get on board if the fare is discounted by $1.
  4. Why do you say that? I don't think it's necessarily true, if Calin got some huge concessions out of Boeing for them, then they are money-makers, no?
  5. I believe the plan is to retrieve 4 or 5 767s from the desert, and convert them to full freighters. I'm sure others on this forum can supply more info.
  6. “We are deferring the additional route suspensions and station closures pending the progress of those discussions." And, if those discussions are not favorable, then the route suspensions will need to continue.
  7. I think the one-time donation to cover expenses is completely fair to be in the club.
  8. Congratulations! Now you have time to take over the running of the AEF!!
  9. KF Aerospace can do it. And they’re not very busy right now.
  10. Ah, yes... the 767 freighter operation. How many aircraft in this fleet?
  11. Great story! I got to know Danny McNiven years later after he came to work at Air Canada. The man was a bit of a legend himself, in the Maintenance world. ?
  12. Thoughts? https://www.flightglobal.com/airframers/embraer-tweets-picture-of-conceptual-turboprop-hints-at-potential-design/140876.article Embraer has released images of an apparent conceptual turboprop aircraft with a fuselage seemingly borrowed from the company’s E-Jet. The Brazilian aerospace manufacturer, which has long discussed the possibility of developing a new turboprop, tweeted a digital rendering of the turboprop on 29 October.

  13. I am sad to see you go, I hope someone picks up the baton here and runs with it.
  14. That’s awesome, and exciting! ?. What sort of flying are you planning?
  15. Maybe this is the big announcement from Westjet coming on the 26th?
  16. Interesting comment from Air Canada in that thread. They should make this better known...
  17. Great... then the yolk breaks when flipping the egg. ?
  18. That’s very interesting. I believe that’s how Germany supported Lufthansa, by taking a 20% ownership stake. I don’t know how much it cost them. But, there is precedent for such an action, when our government took a stake in some big auto manufacturing in Canada.
  19. Try turning it off and turning it back on. ?
