British Airways has fumigated two Boeing 747s after a passenger was allegedly bitten by bed bugs 90 times during a flight, writes Mary Kirby in her blog Runway Girl.
She says this is an issue faced by airlines all over the world especially because they love to travel. In the post Runway Girl highlights advice upon finding the little mites which could save you $2000-$5000 in fumigation fees.
Watch a great video of a Qantas Boeing 747 taking off just 100 meters away from the chalet row at AVALON. Amusingly, the grass was recently cut, so the engines blew grass over the entire crowd including several Flightglobal colleagues.
See the front cover of Flight magazine 100 years ago, this week, which shows an image of a Farnham biplane upsetting the pigeons of St Mark's Square, Venice. And there's a great image of a the F8F Bearcat owned by Historic Flight Foundation at Paine Field, Everett, from the 2010 Vintage Aircraft Weekend and uploaded by AirSpace user Vintage Racer.
