Re: Plane crash between Medicine Hat and Moose Jaw

This report call it a AA-5B which is a Grumman Tiger. Earlier reports of a ballistic parachute are probably wrong because all are dead, and the aircraft was totally destroyed.

Re: Career First Officer at AC by design?

This is a typical 12 year pay B777 pay stub. Some B777 FOs are slightly higher because they are on "grandfathered" pay from the previous contract. This year end stub reflects a November YYZ-HKG overtime trip and another OT trip earlier in the year. Those that do a lot of overtime can make a lot more...

I calculate the total duty of just over 10 hours when they crashed.

Re: Missing north of Peterborough

The Norcanair Aztec I flew in 1980 was C-FPCY. Besides the ancient instrument panel, I remember it had generators instead of alternators, and only one hydraulic pump.

Re: Missing north of Peterborough

Can all 150s fly for 4.5 hours with full tanks? If so, maybe they didn't fill it up, or didn't lean mixture.. According to the CADORS report they had been airborne for 3:24 when they crashed: http://wwwapps.tc.gc.ca/saf-sec-sur/2/cadors-screaq/rd.aspx?cno%3d%26dtef%3d%26dtet%3d2014-11-12%26otp%3d-1...

Re: Missing north of Peterborough

In 1979 I needed to renew my lapsed Multi Instrument Rating. I was living in Winnipeg and arranged to use a Grumman GA-7 Cougar with a retired Transair B737 Captain as my Instructor. He didn't like the idea of using a hood so he made up some cardboard templates arranged to cover up the windows but s...

Re: Missing north of Peterborough

They didn't crash because they could not control the aircraft in night IMC conditions. They flew for a long time in those conditions. They crashed because:

1) they got lost
2) they ran out of fuel
3) they could not find a suitable place to land in the dark

Re: Missing north of Peterborough

I have a few questions....

What kind on navigation equipment would have been on board this aircraft?
(I would assume at least a VOR)

Were there any VOR's in the area they were operating in?

Did they have basic VOR knowledge?

Re: Jazz Q400 Right main landing gear collapse YEG

As I have read that the nature of the tire damage was "a piece missing", is it possible that when it spun up upon touchdown, that it shook the gear leg so much that the downlock was shaken undone, and the "leg lock" arrangement unlocked to allow the collapse? I thought the same thing when I read th...

Re: Jazz Q400 Right main landing gear collapse YEG

The photo resolution isn't quite good enough to be sure, but it looks to me like that RH nacelle and wing tip were both dragging before the aircraft left the pavement. Yes, it does look like the gear collapsed before it left the runway. http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y17/msowsun/photo%20stuff/Pho...

Re: another

Rome is my high on my list but so are Frankfurt(Mainz), Munich, Madrid, Barcelona, and Athens for European destinations. There really isn't any place the 767 flies to that I don't enjoy. Bogota and Sao Paulo are at the lower end of my "enjoyment" factor, but I look forward to going to work every day.
