  1. Interesting. My first thoughts went back to TE901(Air New Zealand) in November of 1979 and the Mt. Erebus disaster. Initial investigation and conclusion of pilot error was later found to be false and a correction of a waypoint in the flight planning computer was not giving to the crew. I bit of a watershed accident for sure....
  2. Rudder are these AC's numbers you are quoting?
  3. FYI the original link above is a live "google spreadsheet" and therefore is being updated as the data comes in.
  4. I believe this to be a legitimate synopsis of the current situation and is being updated as changes come available.
  5. Good synopsis from Juan Brown on the ATSB preliminary report.....
  6. Well worth watching from what I consider a no BS source on aviation accident/incident reporting......
  7. Not the best quality but a good synopsis of the comms during the incident.
  8. Sorry having one of these operating in an active international airport control zone with no apparent Command and Control system is not an ACCIDENT. SA-15 TOR-M1SAM
  9. Tweet from Tom Podolec about the fracass......scroll down for the after pictures...
  10. Is the AC rondelle backwards on the starboard side of the tail? Asking for a friend.
  11. Great synopsis of one of the greatest engines ever designed. Nothing like the sound of four merlin's at once. In this case Merlin 224's. Last October was fortunate enough to observe an engine runup aboard CWHM Lancaster Mk X.
  12. For what it's worth and hoping I've have done the GMT math correctly here is a screen grab of the turnaround point and the appropriate SIG WXX chart. Certainly not the best predictor of potential CAT but it seems to be fairly benign wxx SW of HNL. Reports say the CAT was sudden and not anticipated I suppose wake turbulence from nearby aircraft will be investigated.
  13. I know I may be contributing to the thread creep here but a couple of photos of the remains of L-188 CF-NAZ in the hanger in YSU and being loaded on to a Super Guppy for shipment to Van Nuys CA for fuselage splicing to be reborn as C-GNDZ. Photo credit unknown.
  14. The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum C-47 is a D-Day veteran and the museum is planning a formation flight On June 6 (12 noon) to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of D-Day, CWHM will fly three aircraft types that would have participated on D-Day – the C-47 Dakota, B-25 Mitchell and Avro Lancaster – in a formation flight over Hamilton and area. The museum C-47 FZ692 flew with 233 SQN in the late evening of 05 June 1944 and dropped paratroopers in drop zone DZ-N just NW of Toufreville France behind enemy lines. The pilot that night was W/O J.P.R. McCrae RCAF. 6 C-47 were dispatched that ni
