  1. Not an airline employee but this bird can fly. A young Golden Eagle swooped down about 2 seconds late after one of our resident chipmunks scrambled away. An impressive looking bird.
  2. Cargojet signs a deal with Amazon. https://www.skiesmag.com/press-releases/cargojet-partners-with-amazon-to-provide-air-transportation/?utm_source=skies-daily-news-todays-news&utm_campaign=skies-daily-news&utm_medium=email&utm_term=todays-news&utm_content=V1
  3. This 767 was manufactured in 1994. Although the damage was significant it was only an 11 year old aircraft at the time of the incident. Insurance investigators and a Boeing team from Seattle determined it could be repaired. $23M later and six months in PUJ it was back in service and now part of the Atlas Air fleet as N1373A
  4. I’ve been into PDL a few times with generally an early morning arrival in daylight conditions. NPA and I think runway 30 has quite an elevation change from end to end (upslope) which can create some visual issues. Regarding the poor 757. It can take a real beating but only if you touch down mains first as per the AOM. Nosewheel only for a fraction of a second will produce this kind of damage. Pre-1994 767’s had a weak spot around the forward cargo hold which has the same results with momentary NLG only. AA had one in the UK years ago. Boeing and AA strapped steal beams to each side of the fuselage and ferried it all the way back to DFW. I think this DL 757 will become a lovely restaurant on a rocky Azores beach.
  5. “Did you say Terminal 3, C35? I think there’s a link train.”
  6. No problem with the horse but how do we get a pitchfork through security? Ice tongs can only scoop so much. ?

  8. Retired NASCAR race driver Dale Earnhardt Jr’s Citation rolled off the end of a Bristol, TN runway. Aircraft caught fire but all passengers and crew escaped. Just a bad day or has the shortage of qualified pilots in the US left executive operators hiring less experienced flight crews? https://www.google.ca/amp/s/nascar.nbcsports.com/2019/08/15/dale-earnhardt-jr-family-safe-after-plane-goes-off-runway-catches-fire/amp/
  9. I understand the idea behind painting out all of the front windows on AC’s fleet in black but it does take away the look of this new plane. Interior looks great. ?
  10. True but a majority of rouge flying is leisure destinations where you need hotel rooms. Once you have control of that inventory it’s makes life difficult for the competition. Whoever that will be.
  11. Well trained after many flights to and from work. https://www.ctvnews.ca/mobile/canada/watch-dream-like-deplaning-in-alberta-captured-by-canadian-flight-attendant-1.4544204

  13. Wow. B737-200 combi’s to Cancun. Anyone have the wifi password?
  14. Any displays from your company or are they all out doing it for real?
  15. A difficult situation during approach into an airport with some terrain issues with a smoke filled flight deck. I think I’d prefer the Hudson River on a clear fall day.
  16. And an unusually warm Glasgow summer and very cold beer on Argyle Street. However, still no excuse for busting the local limits.
  17. Some interesting reading on the topic. https://www.icao.int/Meetings/a39/Documents/WP/wp_277_en.pdf
  18. I’m referring to the demand/supply situatio I’m referring to the demand/supply situation.
  19. Further info: Osaka based requirement for rated and non-rated A320 Captains. Permanent contracts to age 65. Signing bonus up to $17000US. I would say the pilot shortage is about to get serious. Southwest just signed a 10 year deal with CAE to train 700 cadet pilots. Although the SW payscale is good they are at the bottom end of the US food chain.

  21. Agency looking for A320 Captains. Must be maximum age 58 to apply. Can forward you the email via PM. Sigma Aviation Services Ltd Aviation Recruitment|Ferry Flights|Executive Placements37 Fitzwilliam Place, Dublin 2, Ireland
  22. Received today from a recruiter: Should the pilot wish to continue to work with Peach after turning 65 a series of 1-year renewable contracts can be issued each year until the pilot turns 68, which is the legal maximum pilot age in Japan
