  1. Not for much longer. The CRJs are returning to Jazz and/or the lessor, and the GGN pilots (pre FEB 2019) are in the midst of transferring to Jazz or going to AC and elsewhere. Scuttlebutt was that GGN and WJA were in talks for an eastern CPA (like WJA has with Pacific Costal in the west). https://nationalpost.com/news/regional-airline-loses-1-5m-passenger-contract-with-air-canada-but-denies-safety-concerns-a-factor
  2. Even the US stopped taking Boeing's tool/ladder/junk laden KC 46 for a period. Boeing obviously isn't done, but what a mess.
  3. That accident began before it even left the originating airport. 25 Yr old FO with less than 400 Hrs TT was just along for the ride. Captain shouldn't have held a driver's license, let alone a pilot's license. Sad and scary to read. US-Bangla Airlines Flt 211
  4. The Youtube video is great. The DC9 is still one of my favourites... wish I could've flown it. A bit of thread drift... sorry Malcom. Interesting DC9/MD80/MD90 Info Simple Elevator Design Description (with pictures) https://youtu.be/7R0CViDUBFs
  5. There is provision to do it under extenuating circumstances in our Q400s, but gate 135 in YYZ isn't that ?
  6. Radar plot I saw online shows a rapid increase in vertical speed (descending) through around 8000'. Not sure how accurate those things are online but it was doing -7000 FPM when it was lost off radar. Weather was in the area, however it looked like they had yet to transition through the worst of it.
  7. If I'm in the left seat I'll gladly oblige!
