  1. 9 hurt, smoke in cabin, aborted take-off, capt gave order to abandon a/c
  2. I think the 321s are intended to serve China-Taiwan shuttles. Both sides are now negotiating to expand direct flights to more airports such as Nanjing, Tianjin, Xian, etc beyond the current regular routes Beijing, Hongqiao and Pudong.
  3. Saw this on TVBS, it says that part of the deck used to be a restaurant, which has closed for 40 years. But recent increased regional flights from HND, SHA - revived its importance. So that's why the government upgraded the facilities. BTW, those lighted tree branch seats cost at least USD30k per seat imported from Spain. I still think the old spot is most exciting. Can smell jet fuel and fee engine exhaus heat.
  4. Starting 31 Oct, 3 different jets will serve TPE-NRT, TPE-SPK, TPE-FUK. This time, EVA licensed 3 different designs from Sanrio (Hello Kitty's licensor). Jet no.1's design theme is "Hello Kitty and the Magic Star", jet no.2 "Hello Kitty loves apple", jet no.3 "Hello Kitty travels round the world." http://articles.latimes.com/2011/oct/28/news/la-trb-hello-kitty-jet-eva-airways-20111027 Guy in middle is EVA CEO (and heir apparent to EVA Group) who is also a full time employee of the airline flying 773ER F/O. Besides the livery, EVA's license also covered all related aspects of the journey. Unveiling ceremony on 28 Oct.
  5. The Beech King Air 100 partially burst into flames after it landed on a street leading up to the airport
  6. Investigators' press conference 9/28 about the incident's initial investigation results, and public apology statements from ANA senior management. Animation reconstruction of the flight from 0:19 onwards. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LCm5kW4jzx0
  7. This was first reported by NHK 2 weeks ago, 6 people (4 passengers + 2 F/A) suffered neck, spine injuries caused by the resulting 2.3g force (FYI, space shuttle launch asfronauts encounter 3g according to NHK). Majority of passengers didn't even feel or realise about it after it happened. Apparently the F/O twisted the rudder trim knob once but seeing that the captain didn't enter, he twisted that same knob two more times. When the a/c banked, he then realized the mistake and took immediate corrections. Although both switches are round, however, a retired ANA pilot interviewed by NHK stated that is an unbelieveable mistake (own opinion anyway), and he explained that Boeing deliberately designed both of them strickingly different in shape and size, and they are located 18cm apart.
  8. That's right, you can see the silhouette of the "volcano" for the "Journey to center of the earth" ride (which starts inside the volcano and ends up shooting out of the volcano's top and downwards). And the 2 high rise blocks look like Makuhari messe office towers, whereby its base is the expo ground for the annual Tokyo Motor show. In another photo, you can see downtown skyscrapers in background with Sky Tree in the center.
