  1. Here is a little more detail of the behaviour of the ejection seat. Hard to believe that a Western Tanager songbird started this tragic sequence of events. https://legionmagazine.com/en/2021/03/bird-strike-caused-fatal-snowbirds-crash-report-confirms/?fbclid=IwAR3b86rhV4hp9VRvOdJh7ADOT2_ICfR-mKeERcRdiGrL3yh-gzaKYjUc70c
  2. Ah the great green reset all on display on the AEF the airline website. Should pretty much be the proverbial "final nail" for our beloved industry except for Emirates and China Southern of course.
  3. He was not a member of Trudeau's wedding party so I suspect he will be ineffectual as Transport Minister.
  4. If 2020 was a B17...Happy New Year everyone!
  5. Memories of many many Christmas spent at work getting people home for the holidays. Merry Christmas and stay safe everyone! A Nordair Christmas Une Noel Nordair.mp4
  6. Will always treasure this letter to a 20 year old sprog from this icon with some really solid advice and guidance. Clear skies Max!
  7. Here is a link to the Maclean's article from January 4 1958 https://archive.macleans.ca/article/1958/1/4/the-toughest-flying-country-in-the-world#!&pid=14
  8. 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.... https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/117377633/memories-of-the-erebus-crash-a-first-plane-trip-lost-friends-absolute-disbelief
  9. Rudder are these AC's numbers you are quoting?
  10. FYI the original link above is a live "google spreadsheet" and therefore is being updated as the data comes in.
  11. I believe this to be a legitimate synopsis of the current situation and is being updated as changes come available. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1cRgtHZ4sRPj4BdcJa2y09SKaG8SRrLLtntHSegfmmoU/htmlview?sle=true#gid=1072793355
  12. Good synopsis from Juan Brown on the ATSB preliminary report..... https://youtu.be/3pPRovcTXJw
  13. Well worth watching from what I consider a no BS source on aviation accident/incident reporting......
  14. Not the best quality but a good synopsis of the comms during the incident.
