    Surprised NUFAN hasn't made a Breaking Bad joke in this thread yet.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    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.

    Price not a factor btw.
    my nomination is Cyprus airways.
    Don't know about their long haul so can't comment on that but the best for flying around europe.

    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.

    You should start up your own airline, tell them to make your planes like that and let the consumers vote with their wallets IMO.

    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:

    Not the sort of thing you'd prefer to see out your window.
