Boeing 737 Max: Ίσως δεν έφταιγε μόνο το λογισμικό - Η επίφοβη καλωδίωση και τα σενάρια για βραχυκύκλωμα

Ενώ η Boeing προσπαθεί να δρομολογήσει την επιστροφή των αεροσκαφών τύπου 737 Max στον αέρα, διαπιστώνονται επιπλέον προβλήματα, πέρα από το λογισμικό, που ενδέχεται να έπαιξαν ρόλο στα δύο αεροπορικά δυστυχήματα.

Ένα ακόμα πρόβλημα είναι πιθανό να έπαιξε ρόλο στα θανατηφόρα ατυχήματα με Boeing 737 Max

📌 American Airlines and British Airways Mark the Official Start of the JFK Redevelopment Plan

Today, Atlantic Joint Business partners American Airlines and British Airways joined New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) to announce the start of construction on a $344 million investment at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) Terminal 8 at the Association for a Better New York luncheon in Midtown.

“Our investment will put the 14 daily flights from JFK to London that we offer in partnership with British Airways in the same terminal and give customers premium check-in space, new joint lounges and a larger variety of retail and dining options,” said Robert Isom, President of American. “We will be adding more than 70,000 square feet to customer and operational spaces to create a truly world-class experience at JFK.”

Additionally, airline team members who power the terminal operations will also benefit from closer, faster and easier connections to American’s joint business partner British Airways by the additional co-located long-haul aircraft gates and an enhanced baggage system.

“As we progress with the JFK modernization project, we are giving Terminal 8 a new look and layout in line with the modern, world-class standards that will define the airport’s ultimate transformation,” Cuomo said. “When this work is completed, Terminal 8 will accommodate more passengers who will be able to enjoy a better travel experience and will make the work of airport staff more efficient and more seamless.”

American and British Airways are the first airlines to mark the start of the transformation of JFK into a state-of-the-art global hub. The upgrades and additions at Terminal 8 will bring improvements in the overall customer experience, including the addition of five widebody gates and four adjacent widebody hard stands (ramp parking where customers are transported to/from terminal via bus), enhanced baggage systems, new lounges, premium check-in space and upgraded concessions and retail options. Additionally, customers arriving in New York will enjoy the ability to more conveniently connect onto other American Airlines flights, and customers departing New York will gain the flexibility of 14 daily flights to London all departing from the same terminal. Construction is scheduled to be completed in 2022.

“This is an exciting development in our move to Terminal 8, alongside American Airlines, our Atlantic joint-business partner,” British Airways’ Chairman and CEO Alex Cruz said. “We are one step closer to offering an even better customer experience for passengers traveling to, from and through JFK. We look forward to our continued work with the Port Authority and American Airlines in order to build a world-class transatlantic travel experience.”

A passenger of Qantas flight from Melbourne to Canberra took this photo during the aircraft were flying in pyrocumulous cloud*.

Passenger Hua Tuo told to dailymail:
'The scariest flight that I've ever taken so far - flying from Melbourne to Canberra today,' she wrote to his page.

'We got hit by a smoke storm. It was orange outside of the window then suddenly it was black, and then the turbulence hit... I was jumping off my seat!'

'We circled Canberra for a while and our captain assured us that we had enough to go back to Melbourne if we can't land. I was pretty sure at that point that I didn't want to stay another hour in flight,' crazy!' he wrote.

'We were supposed to land in Canberra around 6, I was very grateful when I got out of the plane at 7.30. Everyone thanked the pilots.'

*A pyrocumulus cloud or fire cloud, is a dense cumuliform cloud associated with fire or volcanic eruptions that may produce dry lightning (lightning without rain).

*[In selecting Qantas as the world’s safest airline for 2020, AirlineRatings.com editors noted that over its 99-year history the world’s oldest continuously operating airline has amassed a truly amazing record of firsts in operations and safety and is now accepted as the industry’s most experienced airline.

The Australian airline has been a leader in the development of Future Air Navigation System; the flight data recorder to monitor plane and later crew performance; automatic landings using Global Navigation Satellite System as well as precision approaches around mountains in the cloud using RNP.

Qantas was the lead airline with real-time monitoring of its engines across its fleet using satellite communications, which has enabled the airline to detect problems before they become a major safety issue.]
