  1. There are of course other reasons for the jackscrew to indicate that the stab was in an unusual position. But IMHO if it indicates full or significant ND stab position that would be an indication that the MCAS had input or a substantial ND stab trim runaway that went uncontrolled. The stab trim runaway seems unlikely as simple back pressure on the column should engage the stab brake. In an MCAS intervention the stab brake function is disabled.
  2. I believe that Jack Hilton was the Guest of Honour at last Novembers Remembrance Day ceremony at the Museum of Flight here in Calgary that my wife and I attended. He gave a very moving address and braved the elements even though it was a snowy and blustery -10 that day. Thank you, Sir, blue skies and tailwinds forever.
  3. 9 seconds from 6000 feet to impact almost certainly indicates a catastrophic failure of some sort.
  4. The winglet should be a relatively easy fix but the horizontal stab and elevator on the B787 could a substantially more complicated repair.
  5. Bingo, there is even signage in YYZ approaching the holding bays to monitor Tower frequency and yet every time there is a transmission from Ground telling departing aircraft to switch to Tower frequency.
  6. A few well-placed shotgun shells or medium calibre bullets should cause serious controllability issues and/or terminal flight trajectory.
  7. 5800' wet runway, 1 mile vis and a 10 knot tailwind is not a recipe for success in a B737-700. Thank goodness for the EMAS.
  8. 20 years in the industry with 15 of those at Lufthansa. That means WestJet is his 4th stop in 5 years. Great!!
  9. This is the point I was trying, obviously not very clearly, to make.
  10. But yet the first time I and anyone else I have spoken to saw mention of MCAS was in the emergency AD.
  11. Another “name” but no flying yet.
  12. Runway 23 CAT2 ILS has been OTS for months, the threshold is displaced and the RNAV minimums are raised. The only precision approach into YHZ for months has been the CAT1 ILS to 14. Hence the quartering TW and overrun on 14, not 23.
  13. A quick thrust/attitude reference for S&L flight on the NG/MAX for those who may care. Flaps extended........10° NU and 80%N1 Flaps up.......4° NU and 75% N1 Passed to me by a respected training pilot.
  14. They did land on 14, runway 23 ILS and CAT2 have been OTS for months. Strong x-wind landings on 14 with winds favouring 23 have been the norm in YHZ all summer.
  15. That is one messed up speed and altitude graph. 334 knots at 1600 feet. Holy crap!! They were all over the place.
