Re: Qantas 737s in a pickle

Personally, I'm most interested in finding out if they discover why they're cracking at 1/3 of their life span.

Re: Farnborough Air Show.

I'd say the main problem is that post Shoreham the restrictions on air shows make it impossible to have the sort of dynamic displays the public expect at Farnborough due to the surrounding built up areas. That would probably have seen the public days declining in popularity so the decision to end th...

Re: Decision height ? Sea level!

I'm guessing some form of carrier ILS at work? I'm not sure what system the French use, but the US has a Precision Landing System that uses a combination of radar and Microwave Landing System to provide extremely high precision guidance.
