WestJet also had a 737 with 97k cycles on it. I'd imagine it's the cycles that get you not the hours. Remember the Hawaiian 737 convertible. It had 89k cycles.
That was a 737-200 and she was scraped when the 737NG's came on line.

Re: Blue Water Aviation plane down North of Winnipeg

I hope everyone is alright, the water is down into the high 40’s low 50’s this time of year and it won’t take much for hypothermia to be an issue. Not that warm. Lake temps are about 6 degrees celsius (43 fahrenheit) and those small lakes are cooling off fast with daily air temperatures around 0 ce...

The sim will only simulate what is programmed. Boeing provided the parameters to the sim manufactures and originally never included the MCAS programming.

I worked with LIDO charts for several years, what a disaster! There were errors on almost every chart, worldwide.

Re: How bright are those lights

We landed in Calgary a few years ago with the LED lights on 17L stuck on high. The tower could not turn them down and they were almost blinding during the flare. The weather was about 400 feet and 2 miles of mist.

Re: How bright are those lights

Ok, I am talking about HIAL(High Intensity Approach Lights) settings. Maybe the vis is a bit low and you would like a brighter than normal setting but not too bright as you noticed that the last time you tried strength 5, they were quite bright on short final. So you decide to as for strength 4. As...

Re: NASCAR’s Dale Earnhardt Jr Citation Latitude off runway in flames

Looks like a Citation Latitude which should not have any problems operating on a 4500 foot strip. It appears to be a high speed over run on landing.

They were lucky to make it out!

Re: Small plane crash near Kenora.

Local wisdom seems to point to a wing separation at the top of the strut. Far from official. It was the bottom of the wing strut that let go. Years of corrosion, a known issue with Piper wing struts. Piper wing struts and the fork ends have been subject to an AD for over 30 years. It appears this o...

I think he is using the stove pipe to keep the flames off the belly during the first start after carburetor repairs or a long period of inactivity.
Be a shame to set the belly on fire.
