  1. Philippine Airlines new cabin crew uniform. Coming to an airline near you???
  2. I think left rudder was applied to miss the object in the water. The theory of interacting waves (similar to a speedboat doing tight circles on a lake) just doesn’t “hold water” in my opinion. Sorry couldn’t resist
  3. The explanation appears logical. In the longer video Seeker posted (accident begins at :40 secs) after the object is hit and raises the hull, there is a splash behind the aircraft as the object resurfaces.
  4. An inexperienced driver followed the wrong lane. The map was provided here for clarity.
  5. See the image below. The info posted above (incorrect lane taken) is accurate.
  6. Somewhere in the order of 10 rotations of the wheel to 1 unit of trim.
  7. Here is logo from an old Falcon 20 checklist. Used to have seniority list on Company letterhead (~1987). If found, I’ll post it.
  8. http://avherald.com/h?article=4bcefedb&opt=0 Of note: On Aug 29th 2018 The Aviation Herald received information from a multitude of sources stating that the aircraft touched down on Macau's runway 34 at 7.7 degrees nose up, 123 KIAS and 2.4G, bounced, touched down a second time at 15.1 degrees nose up between 133 and 144 KIAS and 3.4G. The aircraft bounced again, touched down a third time at 7.7 degrees nose down (nose gear first), both wheels and part of the nose gear structure separated, debris was ingested by the left hand engine, debris destroyed the VHF1 antenna (causing tem
  9. An interesting study. https://theconversation.com/why-pilots-dont-always-hear-alarms-98434
  10. Flight deck looks clean with a big central monitor.
  11. I initially figured it was a missing container but running into folks with similar stories on other AC flights was too much to ignore. I brought carry on and didn’t have to play in dress shoes and jeans a few hours after arrival. Others who hadn’t “planned on incompetence” were as lucky. It’s a TaylorMade island. What a shame!
  12. Great AC service YYZ-BDA Nov. 1 until arriving at baggage claim. 11 guys on our annual golf trip and only 2 sets of clubs and their bags arrive. BDA staff were pleasant enough but used computer print out paper to hand collect data. The BDA staff hadn’t any answers except call the 1800 “we don’t give a sh!t” number and sit on hold for 1:30 mins only to be connected to a data collector. No communication from AC during our entire stay. Our luggage/clubs were sent on the day of our departure (yyz-bda) then turned around and sent back for collection in YYZ. An AC friend put us onto the S
  13. A woman like this? ' www.youtube.com/embed/qDdZHIuAzVQ
  14. According to this article http://www.cbsnews.com/news/jumbo-jets-low-turn-wrong-course-startles-los-angeles-neighborhood/ the FAA is quoted as saying “The air-traffic controller at the approach control who was handling EVA instructed the pilot to make a left turn to a 180-degree heading,” FAA spokesman Gregor said.
  15. I'd think all would agree their SA (with respect to terrain and other aircraft) was lacking but the "erroneous heading" was trying to adhere to ATC transmissions which were a series of clearances attempting to correct ATC's initial left turn and EVA's slow reversal of this initial error. I'd submit that the quickest way might well have been to disengage the AP and manually get the aircraft turning to the right considering ATC's use of the term expedite. However, that's a big ask for this crew, who most likely engaged the AP at 400' and might have been in the midst of a configuration change an
