[QUOTE=“Young Ned of the Hill, post: 989068, member: 80”]yes, anyone from Fingal is by birth an aviation expert

Id consider myself an expert in the following
Rabbits
Aviation
Football(League & Soccer)
Russia[/QUOTE]
Didn’t you call yourself an aeronautical expert initially? What’s the difference between aeronauticism (or aeronautics) and aviation?

slightly different from the analysis and advice you gave to me a few short months ago

“You’ll be fine. Better chance of getting hit by lightning. If i were in your shoes i’d be concerned too flying with them, i’d recommend getting utterly shit faced drunk before and during the flight.”

Flew into Heathrow Terminal 2 for the first time with our national carrier yesterday. What a beautiful experience compared to the old slog that was Terminal 1. Off the plane a quick jaunt and you are in arrivals. No passport control on the Uk side. Didn’t use public transport so I can’t comment on connections.

Airbus A319

fascinating and scary stuff

I knew a friend of one of the Irish girls who died in the crash. Very tough on families speculating as to what their final moments were.

They are just the same as us. I mean ordinary people. Not “us” ie you and me as such.


#138

that movie with Denzel Washington “Flight” is a good one

starting pay for a pilot in a major US airline is under €30,000
regional airlines start at about €15,000
