Surprised NUFAN hasn't made a Breaking Bad joke in this thread yet.
Investigation: AO-2013-085 - TAWS alert involving ATR?GIE Avions de Transport Régional ATR72-212A, VH-FVR, near Moranbah Airport, Queensland on 15 May 2013
NFI whether this was a passenger flight but descending to circuit height then dropping relatively rapidly to < 500' on downwind then back up to 950' before turning onto base (with warnings going off), that's real uncomfortable for anyone. If the approach looks that bad, usually you go-around and one feels that's what the captain should have done here. Just another data point to consider in your decisions for whom to fly with.
there is that whole safety thing to consider too
do you think people will be allowed to make violins?
who's going to make the violins?
thats a facade. what the **** is a lap belt going to do for you. about the only use is to stop you hitting your head on the roof during turbulence.
id not give the game away if i had the time or the money
um, not really sparkeh. anyway in regard to my sadly un-patented design, no more so than the 3 ply tissue required to be worn at all times upon the passenger's upper chest during flight or when instructed to by crew in anticipation of crash landing.
Not a great day for those flying out of Perth with Cobham Aviation this morning. Worst part is they were predominantly fly in fly out passengers and will be back on planes again very shortly - if not already.
Nicely handled by the crew, thankfully a minor affair and Cobham have been around a long time so I doubt this is their first engine blah. If anything, it's re-assuring knowing total pro's are at the pointy end of their 146's.
A pretty pic people might not have seen on the news:
