  1. Experts find faults on two more Lion Air Boeing 737 MAX 8 By Editorial Board, Nov 03, 2018 Jakarta - Inspectors have found flaws in two other Lion Air Boeing 737-MAX 8. A flight data display problem found on one of the planes might be similar to one reported in the previous flight of crashed Lion Air MAX 8, experts warned. Indonesian ministry of transportation ordered inspections on all Boeing 737 MAXs operated by Indonesian carriers. The ministry announced that ten of the newly released jets that are owned by Lion Air and Garuda Indonesia had been inspected so far. Experts discovered a problem on a jet linked to its flight data display system while a glitch in a jet stabilization system has been spotted on another aircraft. An engineer and a technician from Boeing have joined Indonesian inspectors to help with the quest. So far, no other government ordered inspections for the Boeing's re-engineered single-aisles. Authorities hope that data analyzed from recovered flight recorders may help reveal why the flight JT610 crashed into the Java Sea after a few minutes from takeoff, killing all 189 people onboard last Monday. A technical issue reported on a previous flight has raised questions about whether Boeing's single-aisle has mechanical faults specific to the new model. The Boeing 737 MAX series became the fastest-selling airliner in the commercial aviation history when it entered into service last year. To date, Boeing's re-engineered single-aisle family has accumulated 4783 orders. 219 jets are currently in service with airlines around the world. https://airlinerwatch.com/experts-find-faults-on-two-more-lion-air-boeing-737-max-8/
  2. The heat doesn’t come from the windshield but the sun. I use a glass container on every flight that works like a charm. The container ever touches the windshield but heats up my meals to a wonderful temp.
  3. This is an interesting turn of events. There has been a disconnect between the front line of the airline and the back end support for a few years. This is the first sign of discention within the hangar/campus groups of employees. Maybe it will be a wake up call that something has deteriorated from the top down. I would have predicted Mtce then CSA’s as being next. I wouldn’t have predicted the dispatchers. Time will show what occurs because of this and the preceding events.

  6. If no one goes early it will look like this in the next 10 Years. And assuming no one is hired into the 55+ age group in the next 10 years 32 next year 62 in 2 years 102 112 108 108 125 115 118 144 117 Peak year is in 12 Years at 153. It looks similar to this in the years following as well
  7. You need to have the airport visual and declare it to ATC. Won’t be cleared it if you don’t.

  10. It is possible. I can't reference it exactly now but at 10ft RA the logic allows the reverse sleeves to start their transition.

  14. Possibly, except that a scheduled run at the exact same time flew the north route I fly almost weekly.
  15. She got airborne just before 16:00 local time. A weird route to YYZ. Heading there none the less. No passengers on board either. http://flightaware.com/live/flight/WJA8977/history/20151020/2100Z/CYYC/CYYZ
  16. Oh yeah. Totally missed the date.
