  • Seahawk, I need another one, please could you let me. And btw a Good morning from Lohausen airport.

    Gabe, I do not open that many videos which are thrown to my feet. But I've tried yours. Unstable approach profile.
    Only these three words plus the diagram which is shown before I started the video, gave me an idea.

    The diagram at 00:00, or rather earlier, in the title of the video, is very blurred or out of focus, but I assume that on top of that diagram there is a 10,000. And then that diagram shows,
    what I'd call a nose dive.
    And then the man in the video shows what all men should have in their pocket when you have to land at Karachi,
    the ILS approach chart rwy 25L for Karachi.
    'At 6.3 nmi DME the a/c needs to be at 2100 in order to intercept the 3.0° glideslope. At 160 knots, the vertical speed (v/s) would be 849 fpm. [...]'

    Theoretically, I do not need more than this 01:47 minutes of the video. With a given top of descent,...

  • In the simulator section of this forum, we could argue about what a computer game like fsx is really good for. I must confess, that was the tool which I used to look up the distance between the departure and the planned arrival which hasn't really ended at the gate, but with a fatal crash.

    552 nautical miles air-line distance, from dep direct to arr? That is so very much an everyday distance in an A320, I know that from my home airport. Fiumicino, Capodicino, Fontanarossa, all these airports are more than only 552 nmi away.

    The very first thing when back then I made my first steps in a Flight simulator was, to concentrate on the landing. Back then it was the default B737-400 fs9, and today I really know as if it were yesterday, how early I had to begin the descent between DUS and FCO.

    But here in this topic we don't talk about a computer game, but about professional pilots who .. yes who get paid for what they do, that's what I originally tried to...

  • Hey my friend.

    That's for sure, 210 knots over the threshold?
    As I said somewhere above, I know only such a tiny minimum about an A320. But 210 over the threshold....

    that even in my eyes does not really seem healthy, and I don't really know the exact vref on final in an A320.

    A couple of minutes ago I have 'telephoned' with 3WE, and I told him that the only computer game which I know a litte bit about is
    Randazzo's LH-B744 fsx simulator.

    Even in a B747-400 simulator, I have never tried to land with 210 over the threshold.

    And no checklist done, neither for descent, nor for approach, nor on final?

    TeeVee assumes that something in this A320 cockpit happened which distracted the Captain and his F/O.
    Whatever that was.

    Good to see that all the 'ole jetphotos heroes' are back online and healthy again. Good to see TeeVee again....

    Now under the eyes of 83 years in life and more than 25 years of experience here in this forum,

    together with Alex,

    I again can explain, what definitely I don't accept here in this forum.

    Crew members which neither don't find a second for a nice avatar, nor Location, nor age, nor birthday.

    I can definitely say, under the eyes of Alex, why I don't accept you. You are a ghost!

    Or are you a real person?!...

    I definitely have a very good evening, trust me!

    And I stay with my announcement. I will not write one word again when you are online!

    Now you should have a good time and wait until I am offline.

    In plain text:

    Why were you able to wait until a #2, between Raul Alonso and me posted his words, until you deleted everything?!

    Answer me, you Austrian!

    I definitely collect information on super users who always like to delete one or two or three of my entries.

    Verkauf mich nicht für dumm man, so dumm bin ich nicht!

    Raul Alonso was the threadstarter. And I was #3, not number #2!

    So either you were definitely to slow OR I was too fast.

    Choose a fact and leave me alone with your excuses!

    Probably the rule is much more simple. I should only be online when you are online. Then you can show your adjutant what is right and what is wrong..

    Such a parvenu!

    PS: You could leave me an SMS when you go online. I definitely feel more comfortable in your presence.

    Hi Alex. Can you tell me something about the logic which
    DLOWWA
    uses to ban jetphotos junior members like RaulAlonso. ?

    I mean, I only try to understand what your adjutant* DLOWWA does. Raul only wrote 1 forum entry, and I have read what Raul wrote.
    *dt.: Adjutant, Beisitzer, Lehrling.

    Raul was not offensive in his words.

    The First Step in my eyes would be, warn Raul. The Second Step would be, copy what Raul wrote and then show it to you.

    I would never ban junior members, when that includes the fact that a whole topic with three forum entries will be deleted, so that even one of the contributors
    who indeed is Me,
    is no longer able to find that topic!

    Btw, that was not a top secret topic, Raul only asked if there is a difference between what we call
    A340-300
    and
    A340-313X .

    The last question is, everytime when DLOWWA is online, a) I should be offline, b) he deletes...

    Let me just be polite. Is there a reason why you banned RaulAlonso.
    ?
    I have read his one and only forum entry. He was more polite than you sometimes are.

  • The topic is 747, right?
    Sorry, I can't really stop finding photos, must be the a/c type..

    Well, I still have another one. Checkerboard again. This one really seems like a .. 22 year old picture postcard! Taken shortly before that aviation paradise closed its doors forever.

  • Alex, I need another one.

    Which was the counterpart for the ATLAS Gruppe. The KSSU, since February 1970. Why do I assume that you also could learn something? Well. We are younger than the 747, arent't we.

    And now, only for you, Alex. Who was part of the KSSU 747 operator alliance.

    KLM (K), SAS (!), .. and now, S and U is missing. What would you guess.
    A 747 operator alliance, founded 1970.

    The 'U' stands for the French 'Union de Transports Aériens', UTA, which as a 747 operator only existed for 29 years, between 1963 and 1992, originally founded on LFPO Aéroport de Orly.

    And the S? Well, two photos say more than 1000 words.

  • List of current 747 operators, and not only that.

    List of current 747 operators, where the cute and small B744 is the old (before 2010) and new (since 2020 again) flagship?
    Not KLM, and not Air France, which both have left the 747 club. Which I regret!

    Lufthansa. Which if you asked me in October 2019, would have been complete nonsense in my eyes. I always expected that between Schiphol, CDG and Rhein/Main all 747 operators reach the Gold member status. Especially KLM, who would have reached Gold member status in the 747 club in February 2021. I don't understand their decision.

    Btw, what's the new KLM flagship?

    50 years in the 747 club, that's an honor.

    Why 80 meters wingspan, if 64.5 m completely suffice?!

    PS: Since let's say 10 or 15 years, I assume that I know one or two things about the 747. But there still is something new. Which seems to be normal, I am younger than the 747.
    Before all Lufthansa...

  • Alex, I need one another. Please let me.

    Air France has also decided that their A380s are much too big. Air France, I mean this is

    Air France!

    Not only in my eyes, but definitely the inventor of the Airbus A380. It was a French aviation engineer who thought, bah, that 747 is too small. I don't quite remember his name, but I'm sure that the A380 is of French Origin.

    And now, Air France is the second major International airline in Europe, who will never again take off in an Airbus A380,
    #2, after Lufthansa.
    Sometimes, wikipedia is really fast.
    In this very moment, the en wiki for Air France is on my screen, and they do NOT mention their ten A380s as active aircraft in the Air France fleet, for May 2020!



    Airbus A380-800 (2009-2020).

    Wow!

    PS: I just wonder what Air France after all will call their flagship. Here at Lufthansa, I don't think that there is a doubt... .. ...

  • 10 years in the A380 club with Lufthansa. That's less than my jetphotos membership. But I see reasons for that.

    1. Why a wingspan of 80 meter (!), or 261 ft 8 inches. My home airport Lohausen Intl (DUS) does not have a problem with that, not either if Emirates likes to come back to DUS with their huge flyin swan.
    But not all airports in Germany provide three terminals with 500 meter space each (DUS), thus 1500 meter or 1.5 kilometer space, to park wingtip beside wingtip beside wingtip beside wingtip...
    I heard that an airport which they try to build in Berlin since anno Domini 2006, only has 1400 meter..

    2. Why a wingspan of 80 meter? With the circumstance that in Berlin until today, May 2020, they do not own one airport which is able to handle an A380 and its 500 or 600 passengers.

    3. Why a wingspan of 80 meter, when since 1970 the Original is in the air, with a wingspan of only 64.5 meter (only 211 ft 5 inches)? The Gold...
