The 17 Most Dangerous Airports In The World And Why You Must Experience Them – Jim Dobson

1.jpg

I found myself gripping the armrest as my plane attempted a landing in Africa on a remote sandy airstrip, the landing was called off and we needed to circle around several times in order to scare off several resilient giraffes that were occupying the runway. Almost a month later I made a dramatic landing in Bhutan that was like a scene out of Star Wars where my commercial airliner had to bank dramatically to fit in between the narrow, remote mountain terrain………..

Turbulent Touchdowns – Selected (Attempted) Landings At BHX – flugsnug

Selected (attempted) landings at BHX this winter on the more difficult days for the pilots. As usual, the problems mainly come not from the wind speed and direction but sudden changes in these. A couple of the shots are actually from 2014 but emphasize the bumpiness of the approach over the City at times.

The pilot of one of the landings here kindly made the following comment: “The thing that makes BHX stand out from most other windy airports is the fact that the gusty, turbulent winds seem to persist all the way down to the runway. In most airports, the air seems to be a bit calmer once you enter the ground effect during the flare, but not in BHX.

I’m not sure if this is caused by a lack of trees or some other specific terrain features in the area, but it makes the landings there quite a bit more interesting. These landings might look scary from the outside and trust me, it’s a lot more challenging and stressful than landing in CAVOK wind calm conditions, but it’s also the most fun you can have as a pilot.”

When you board a modern jet aircraft, you’re probably looking for your seat number and for the nearest emergency exit. The flange sticking out of the wing – While you’re waiting to leave the gate, you’re probably staring out the window at the wings that are going to carry you off this Earth. The hum when you board the plane –

Have you noticed that there’s an omnipresent drone while you’re waiting for the last passenger to board the plane? Tomato juice – Do you find yourself ordering a tomato juice when you’re on a plane? Opening window shades for landings and take-offs – I bet you thought the window shades were installed on planes so you can sleep during long flights.

Winglets – Airplanes are always a tug-of-war between the thrust of the engines and aerodynamic drag. Sidestick – Back in the day of the first planes, pilots were known as “stick and rudder men”, steering the plane by the power of their arms and legs pushing on control cables. Bleed air system – While the Wright Brothers’ Flyer barely flew above the dunes at Kittyhawk, today jetliners fly higher than the tallest mountains.

The eye level indicator on cockpit window – Pilots come in all sizes – and just like your car, planes have adjustable seats for them. The hole in your window – Since cabin pressure is so important, you might not think a hole in your window is a good thing…..

The History Of Boeing 747 ( Video Biography) – Largest Dams

The Boeing 747 is an American wide-body commercial jet airliner and cargo aircraft, often referred to by its original nickname, “Jumbo Jet”. Its distinctive hump upper deck along the forward part of the aircraft has made it one of the most recognizable aircraft, and it was the first wide-body airplane produced. Manufactured by Boeing‘s Commercial Airplane unit in the United States, the 747 was originally envisioned to have 150 percent greater capacity than the Boeing 707, a common large commercial aircraft of the 1960s. First flown commercially in 1970, the 747 held the passenger capacity record for 37 years.

The four-engine 747 uses a double-deck configuration for part of its length and is available in passenger, freighter and other versions. Boeing designed the 747’s hump-like upper deck to serve as a first–class lounge or extra seating, and to allow the aircraft to be easily converted to a cargo carrier by removing seats and installing a front cargo door. Boeing expected supersonic airliners—the development of which was announced in the early 1960s—to render the 747 and other subsonic airliners obsolete, while the demand for subsonic cargo aircraft would remain robust well into the future…..

Why You Should Be Glad to Sit in The Middle Seat – Samuel Engel

1.jpg

First of all, there never was a glamour age of air travel. Second of all, get over it. It’s the right thing for society. Let’s get the myths out of the way first. When we talk about how great air travel used to be, are we talking about my childhood in the 1970s and 1980s, when roving bands of Hare Krishnas marauded passengers in smoke-filled terminals? Next to the gate for the Eastern Air Shuttle, there was a kiosk that sold last-minute life insurance in case you lost your nerve. To board that noisy DC-9 or 727, you schlepped your bags across the tarmac and up the air stairs, snow or shine……..
