I can't wait to taxi it around . . . and then fly it!

flygc's insight:

OK gang, here's a video clip of the Fokker D-VII arrival and assembly on May 15, 2015, at Fantasy of Flight. This beautiful aircraft was built by WWI specialist, Fred Murrin and is painted in the colors and markings of German ace Ernst Udet. We're still waiting for the final registration from the FAA, which we'll need before they can come out to sign the airplane off for flight. Hopefully, some time soon we'll get it outside in the grass.

flygcforum.com ✈ X PILOT ✈ XP11 - Miracle On The Hudson (US Airways Flight 1549) ✈ | flygcforum.com ✈ Everything Aviation ✈ Flight Training, Aviation Products, Travel and Leisure Services ✈ | Scoop.it

The most successful ditching in aviation history.

flygc's insight:

US Airways Flight 1549 was an Airbus A320-214 which, three minutes after takeoff from New York City's LaGuardia Airport on January 15, 2009, struck a flock of Canada geese just northeast of the George Washington Bridge and consequently lost all engine power. Unable to reach any airport, pilots Chesley Sullenberger and Jeffrey Skiles glided the plane to a ditching in the Hudson River off Midtown Manhattan.

I rather kill myself then being on that flight!

flygc's insight:

The parcel delivery service has 500 pilots based in Anchorage, the domestic hub of its Asia-Pacific network, where about 30 UPS aircrafts take off and land every day, according to Dave Smith, UPS Asia-Pacific region pilot chief. But for all the other pilots not making trips across the Pacific Ocean in Boeing 747-400 planes, there’s no sitting still. Instead they head to the UPS Flight Training Facility near Kincaid Park to hone their skills on two simulators, where pilots can get as close to flying as possible without ever getting in the sky.

This dedication to flight simulators highlights the commitment that FedEx has to safety.

flygc's insight:

It's been called the "world's coolest video game," and while it is a sensational visual experience, visuals only scrape the surface of flight simulator capabilities in the FedEx Air Ops Training Center, in Memphis, TN. The nearly 4300 FedEx pilots and instructors log more than 12,000 annual training sessions in one of the 17 flight simulators, including the MD10, MD11, Airbus 300/310 series, 757, 767 and 777 models.

flygcforum.com ✈ AIRLINES #1 ✈ Inside Singapore Airlines ✈ | flygcforum.com ✈ Everything Aviation ✈ Flight Training, Aviation Products, Travel and Leisure Services ✈ | Scoop.it

This airline never disappoints. It's the best of the best.

flygc's insight:

SIA used to be the best airline in the world, but time has changed now. The Middle East airlines like Etihad, Emirates and Qatar Airways are taking over the world by storm. Latest SIA report says it loses million in the first quarter of 2017. The bad news is it is retrenching staff soon. By service however, the Singapore Girl is still a great way to fly.

Glad to see they went the extra mile to fully preserve this plane.

flygc's insight:

In 2015 during a maintenance visit in Fresno, California, EAA decided it was about time for the Tri-Motor to undergo a major overhaul. Last Fall the restoration began, with it finishing just before the Spring tour kicked off in 2016.
