  1. A little bit of Queen to start your day perhaps?!
  2. This is second hand information, but… I understand this guy was a bit of a problem child who wanted the summers off so he could do his air show flying, which then led to him booking off on pairings and eventually termination. Sour I suspect.
  3. If they all look like Diana…. I for one am also ok with it.
  4. It doesn’t matter to the Bean Counters. John D. Rockefeller was once asked “How much money is enough?” He answered “Just a little bit more.”
  5. Our company (before the pandemic anyway) used to do a BGI-YYZ-YWG as part of a 5day pairing. I would not want to do one of these without someone there with me to catch my “brain farts” and the end of the last leg. And then there is the fact that on day 5 I find that I’m more susceptible to “brain farts”, as I’m somewhat already thinking what I need to on my days off. This single pilot thing smells like a unacceptable risk just to save $. IMHO.
  6. That’s what I was thinking. i would love to see the bill for this little “oops”.
  7. Can u expand on what sort of damage something like this would to to the fuselage vs aluminum pls. I understand that they “bake” the entire section in one piece. So how would a repair be conducted on something like this? thank u
  8. How does a carbon fibre fuselage compare to a aluminum one in this situation? I know there have been some hard landings on the 67 which caused buckling, but which was repairable. How does one of these handle this sort of damage?
  9. I may or may not have lost, and had to replace all sort of wings over the years wich turns out I didn’t loose in the end after all Funny thing about that.
  10. This isn’t in anyway a productive comment to make on this thread, But.. Hows that outsourcing everything and everyone to unskilled labour to save money program working out for you Boeing?
  11. I’m in southern Ontario. As I’m part of The Front Line people, who the vaccine is smart enough not to infect, coming back from out of country is a non issue with no required quarantine. It’s just this one time, after already being at home, where it turned out our sim instructor tested positive the day after we sat in the sim with him. Called the hotline, got the test and was told to stay home.
  12. Sorry. I.... just....can’t........stop........myself!
  13. I was exposed in MIA when we went down for training. Had the test done and was told to self quarantine. Not one phone call, not one visit. I don’t know, but it would seem somehow u set off some bells somewhere.
  14. A rather interesting tutorial on locks. He speaks nothing but truth.... https://youtu.be/m-tKnjFwleU
  15. I think I will sue her as I have developed PTSD from learning that u can get PTSD from an engine failure. I did not know that. If it hadn’t been for her lawsuit, I would not have realized how traumatic an engine failure can be, and so she is to blame for my PTSD over her getting PTSD from an engine failure. Now, back under my blanked...
  16. Why is it some people always have to attribute things they don’t understand to the supernatural or off-world beings? And that’s going on the assumption these events even happened. Sorry, I for one will need much more proof than “trust me”. And so far, nothing I have ever witnessed makes me believe in either. And as a counterpoint to the submission Daniel.o posted.... https://taskandpurpose.com/analysis/military-generals-conspiracy-theories/
  17. “The Drake Equation”not withstanding..... I have nearly +/- 19,000 hours now. From the north to the south of the continent and then some, I have yet to see anything that cannot be explained. And I say this with some sadness, as I would dearly love to some evidence of another civilization. But sadly nothing. No blinking lights, or buzz jobs by reckless ETs having some fun. Even the Bermuda Triangle has been a disappointment in this regard. So until someone can produce some verifiable evidence, I will continue to be a sceptic. And taking someone’s word from the Internet on this subject as proof is the hight of folly in this day and age. But that’s just me... bleep blupp bling boob... I am not an alien trying to cover our tracks.
  18. Upper... Are u suggesting pilots are withholding the fact that they HAVE seen these UFOs? What percentage of pilots do u believe have seen UFOs?
  19. Sadly, I never got any PIC time in one, just BS time. It’s still a very vivid memory of when they let me start one up at the dock. I can still feel and smell this thing.
  20. Considering what the US and Boeing did (re the CSeries), I don’t think Canada should be taking any aircraft from our southern neighbours anytime soon. Grumble.....
  21. Sorry if I missed where this is stated about the part time work, and minimal training? As for around here, there is a computer learning module that must be completed, and then it’s a day of sim training. I believe this is more than enough given how much is already known about the issue. I for one am very happy to get back to the Max as it is (my opinion) a much more pleasant plane to spend time in vs the Ng. Just my 1.5 cents.
  22. Any word on when the folks in red will be doing that training?
  23. WJ pilots will start going down to MIA in January for training on the Max. I can’t speak fo AC folks.
