  1. Visual approach during bad weather...
  2. Buying new plane doesn't guarantee a trouble free flight after all...
  3. Dropping a new engine into a 20 year old car is not something that happened everyday. As we speak, the engine now is on a treiler, on the way to Penang. Will reach there today for the replacement work. If MH operates only 1 single B734, then they might have some problem dealing with this kind of situation. Just like when SQ A380 just arrived. They were new. Little problem surfaced and the planes were grounded. It's not the age. It's the support. Unless you ask MAS engineering to change engine of DC3 or Concorde, then maybe they will have lots of problem.
  4. You see, the problem is not with the aircraft's fuselage. It was the engine. It doesn't make any sense to change the whole plane when all you need is to replace the engine.
  5. Super sharp and excellent pictures!
  6. Nice pics bro! I'm not sure what I was holding at that time but I think I was doing the before take off checklist. Trying to locate you but the window tint and reflection made it impossible.
  7. Taking delivery of the A380s now may not be a good thing. Its better to receive A380s later since the pax demand has reduced. At the same time they can get some compensation from AIRBUS. Though the compensation might not be for MAS still it's a huge saving for the owner of the A380s.
  8. It's hard to tell who's at fault from the picture. This incident shows that the challenge of handling a plane doesn't end at landing but instead until engine is shutdown.
  9. Welcome to MW bro! Do join our activity here!
  10. Enjoy guys! http://www.bharian.com.my/Current_News/BH/Sunday/Bmdua/20091213092157/Article/index_html
  11. Not trying to speculate but from my source, it could be problem with the loading.
  12. Khaled


    The pilot is adjusting the nose of the plane. A slight push forward can cause that feeling you described.
  13. IIRC, BA already offered the same thing at least 10 years ago. So, I don't think it's a bad idea.
  14. Good luck with the written test then. Hope you'll get to the interview stage.
  15. Relax bro, what is important is that, when they ask you a question, answer on surface....don't go into much details. Don't dig your own grave.
  16. I don't know about AK but some of the standard interview questions for aviation: 1.Tell us about yourself. 2.Why do you want to work with AK? 3.What's latest news with AK? 4.How many planes we have? 5.How to differentiate between, A320, A330 and A340? P/s: I think wearing red jacket will give extra point.
  17. What kind of detail you want to know?
  18. You are an airline pilot, you are aware that they were doing emergency descend so what else you don't know there? I'm confused...
  19. Twin engine fly with instructor. So no problem. hihi...
  20. You know some people believe in second chance
  21. Its the cabin climb/descend rate. It will be the same as aircraft vertical speed if the aircraft is unpressurized. Eventhough airbus is a FBW aircraft, it can still be flown just like a conventional aircraft. You can control the thrust manually, fly manually.
