  2. Jean Alesi. My friend saw the photo. Got in touch with the photographer and received a proper print. He had Alesi and the Concord chief pilot sign it. I have a copy. We toured the Benetton F1 factory as well as the Red Bull factory. He moved teams the first year after Red Bull bought out Stewart F1
  3. A friend of mine believes he is the only mechanic to work on both the Concord and that F1 car.
  4. I wasn’t working that day. When the ramp was slippery having a DC8 assist the tug with reverse thrust happened often. I was wing walking when a BAW 747 used reverse thrust to assist the tug. More recently a manager was asked if it would be OK for a Q400 to power back from gate 135. The manager asked “what’s a power back?”
  5. Should have stayed on the load bearing surface
  6. A Cathay Pacific aircraft was stuck at Tel Aviv Airport The plane was to operate flight CX676 from Tel Aviv Ben Gurion to Hong Kong. The Airbus A350-900 (reg. B-LRX) is stuck after the left main gear broke the asphalt during push back.
  7. 2019-02-15 A Rossiya B747-400 (EI-XLH) and a Azur B767-300 (VQ-BUO) were damaged when the stabilizer of the 767 struck the winglet on pushback at Moscow-Vnukovo Airport (UUWW), Russia. The latter sustained substantial damage to its stabilizer. No one was injured

  10. Sounds like Swoop had a bad day.
  11. From Twitter “ On the deck of the ferry I realized my cell phone was dry; my first call was to US Airways. The airline operations manager who answered abruptly told me he couldn’t talk because they “had a plane down in the Hudson.” I said “I know. I’m the guy” Capt. Sullenberger.
  12. Summer bid. Day shift water truck #1 position taken.

  18. Good weather for flying awaits these Canadian armed forces jets at Trenton air base, which were to take part in the International Air Show at CNE today. The weatherman promised lots of sun and heat today and tomorrow. Showers, he says, will come tomorrow night. The 2 1/2 hour air show will include, for the first time, a salute by an Air Canada 747 jumbo jet and an exhibition of parachute jumping - Courtesy of Toronto Public Library & the Toronto Star Archives - 1971
  19. Why should my tax dollars be spent to support an airline route when it’s not viable for a bus?
