  1. NTSB suspect fan blade metal fatigue was part of the process. A 1.14 in long and 0.217 in deep fatigue crack region was found of the blade root of the missing blade http://aviationweek.com/commercial-aviation/ntsb-metal-fatigue-complicit-southwest-engine-fail?NL=AW-05&Issue=AW-05_20160913_AW-05_118&sfvc4enews=42&cl=article_3&utm_rid=CPEN1000001461166&utm_campaign=6993&utm_medium=email&elq2=34b681af6987472c9ba30801666dddc4 (free subscription required.

  2. Thanks Alan! It was a civil display team, although I believe Ireland was still flying them until about 2001/2002-ish before the PC-9's arrived
  3. Morning all, I spent the weekend up in Dublin for the Bray Air Display on the Sunday last week. Part of a now 2 day airshow and a week long festival, an estimated 90,000-100,000 people turned up on the Sunday to watch the variety of aircraft and display teams, ranging from The Red Arrows and Frecce Tricolori to the Irish Historic Flight Chipmunks and Dragon.

  4. There was an Aerosoft train sim route sold both by them and DTG via Steam, and all of the adverts on the hoardings changed between the two - Aerosoft real world, DTG generic. So that could be that
  5. Off an Airbus 230. Well it is the Mirror after all!
  6. Belated Happy Birthday Andrew - Irish time always lags Hope you had a good day
  7. Wrong side of the country to be the Irish Sea It's for a 'Glamping' (camping but in effect without the tent and in a solid building) village. Quite a bit going on there - there's to be a load of taxis, buses, a couple of trains and a marina full of boats
  8. Thanks all! Mikael - it was actually bound for the Isle of Man on Aer Lingus Regional flights. I think it's the colours and in bloacks that maje it the LEGO plane!
  9. Ahh, OY-RUG, known locally as the LEGO plane. Not sure why Danish Air Transport chose that livery but distinctive for sure! And it is an ATR72 (ATR72-202)
  10. Evening all, I've finally got through all of the descriptions of the 160 (just shy) photos taken at Dublin Airport (EIDW) on Friday 22nd April. Having flown (haha!) out of college, I ended up getting the Silkway IL-76 that was visiting and the main reason for the visit. Plus a brand-new Ryanair on delivery from Boeing.

  13. Excellent leg there Matt - great little aircraft!
  14. Excellent leg there Steph - nice story too!
  15. You've even got a post from FSX Steam Edition on Facebook! Looks good - will take a bit of time to adjust but it should be for the better!
  16. It could be said that it was actually clever, showing the 'bomb' or weaponry of the hijacker
  17. Wonder what it is going to be really like - note the 'Not in game footage' on the bottom at 0:07. Hate that!

    Wrong forum I think - don't know if a DC-10 will fit into some of the MEBAR airports! Great shots anyway! (Edit as required)
  19. You never know..... (and I'll behave this time by having a twin engined aircraft!)
