  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.

  11. Automated FOD detectors QinetiQ Tarsier which works 24/7, were already installed in YVR, LHR, Dubai, Doha - several years ago. FOD is detected by the radar, triggering an alarm. The Tarsier User Display highlights the object’s location. The camera enables live footage of the FOD for visual confirmation. GPS co-ordinates are sent to operations staff for accurate location and efficient removal of FOD.
  12. BA's re-launch mini film will delight with its potted history of air travel that celebrates the firm's origins from 1919 to the present day. Here a De Haviland 51 bi-plane gets checked over A still from the advert sees the pilot of a silver De Haviland Dragon DH89 as used by Imperial Airways from Croydon to the four corners of the British Empire The ad also features a Douglas DC-3 Dakota from 1949-50 flown by British European Airways (BEA) from Northolt A Vickers VC10 Flying for forerunner British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC) in the 1960s from Heathrow 1960s pilots make their way to the Vickers VC10s during the 'Aviators' advert At least this time, Maggie didn't create fiasco like what she did in the World Tails campaign.

  14. The world's passenger on EVA Air's no-fly list not because of security reasons, but for being an "unreasonable customer": 1st incident - During TPE-HKG flight, demanded meal service for 10 times and rejected the meal selection each time. And on 1 occasion, used apple juice to gargle mouth and spitted it back to meal tray. This caused the chief stewardess to loose temper and screamed "I quit" in front of other passengers. 2nd incident - Sneaked into galley before a/c reached cruising altitude - and started opening trolley to look for food and drinks. Now - EVA Air refused to issue boarding pass even though he completed online transaction for HKG-TPE-HKG, and left him stranded in HKG. http://tw.nextmedia.com/applenews/article/art_id/33661015/IssueID/20110911
