A big welcome to the rather promising new blog Blindvector which has got off to a storming start with these spy-in-the-cab pix of a US captain’s distressing choice of footwear.I think I can live with Crocs in the cockpit if it makes you feel good (though I bet Sully doesn’t wear them), but with black […]

Air France has released a statement on an incident two weeks ago in which an A320, fited with the upgraded Thales pitot tube, experienced an airspeed indication anomaly. Icing is suspected. The incident was first reported by Le Figaro.The Air France statement reads as follows: A very brief 6-second anomaly in airspeeddata display was observed […]
So, its NASCAR race day at Texas Motor Speedway, Fort Worth. Plenty of folks flying into Alliance Airport nearby and dialling up the ATIS (automatic terminal information service) to hear about any special procedures. Maybe expecting information Bravo, they get to hear information Bubba. NASCARAFWATIS.wav It’s great – enjoy.
Even though it’s in the sim, you still wince on the touchdown.
Well, from time to time anyway. Enjoy the Sonata Ruslan. Looks like the An-124 is really going to go back into production BTW. A rare example of a niche design that is also a commercial success.
Having taken the train to Kazan I fly back courtesy of Tatarstan Airlines. To my slight distress the flight is scheduled to be on a boring old Boeing 737 and not the Tupolev Tu-134 or -154 that I’d love to try. Still it turns out to be a 737-500 and I can’t remember the last […]

When I was in Dallas earlier this year I had to turn down an invite to see the EcoPower engine washing process. Happily Southwest have now made a very neat movie of it.
Truly a day of planes, trains and automobiles. Up at 05:00 in London, and in a minicab to Heathrow T5 at 06:00. For T5 the cab drivers like to take the motorway route all the way round the M25 to the west side of Heathrow instead of going through the suburbs as they’ve done forever […]
It’s all a pretty sorry tale and I’m not really planning to say anything more about it after this unless it’s plain wrong. According to various United sources the captain was on his first trip back after extended sick leave.About 45min into the flight he asks for a document called the crew declaration. There’s a […]
