#StormErik has caused a few go arounds at #Heathrow today and the videos will undoubtedly produce some headlines that don’t actually reflect the reality for the professional crews or the measured & methodical way they make a decision to go around. Follow me on our approach >>
Most approaches start an long way from the airfield. The pilots will get the weather and assess the likely “threats”. In the case of wind they will verbalise & practice manoeuvres such as a go around as well as setting acceptable & safe parameters for the day #StormErik #Aviation
During extremes of weather it’s likely the Captain will plan to land the aircraft, to utilise their experience & exposure to these events. This increases the likelihood of landing but is never a guarantee. The team will always work to their parameters set in the brief #StormErik

#OnThisDate in #Aviation: Jan. 17, 2008, @British_Airways Flight 38 crashed just short of the runway @HeathrowAirport. Thanks to the incredible training and professionalism of all involved, plus a little luck, there were no fatalities. #AvGeek #Safety #BA38 (Thread)
AUDIO: Listen to the chilling ATC recording of the #BA38 incident.

The calm and cool professionals in the @HeathrowAirport Tower, along with the rest of their @NATS colleagues, performed exceptionally. #Heroes

Plagier #Wikipedia pour remplir un magazine, certains en ont rêvé, le "Magazine de l’Aviation" l’a fait !

Des pages entières sont d’authentiques copiés-collés d’articles de Wikipedia.

Un thread pour dénoncer ces pratiques honteuses ⤵️⤵️⤵️
Commençons avec un article sur l’histoire de Boeing. Tout va bien. Sauf que ledit article est repris quasi intégralement de l’article de Wikipedia :

Cerise sur le gâteau : les titres des paragraphes sont identiques à ceux de Wikipedia (copy-paste oblige).
Le "magazine" liste ensuite les différents modèles d'avions qui ont marqué l'histoire de Boeing. Et là, ô surprise, 100% des textes sont plagiés.

As much as some #environmentalists want to think that @realDonaldTrump is only calling for increased logging by his criticism of #California's forest management, That is NOT the case. #MAGA #Qanon
This article shows (through @Potus tweets) that Trump does have a fairly good understanding of the West's wildfires. Quoting one of his tweets.. "Billions of dollars are given each year" to California to help. #MAGA #KAG…
Lots of publicity about @potus warning about #California losing Federal monies from their #SanctuaryState status. Well, as much as I would love to see this, it has not happened. #MAGA #qanon…

What size of land would be required to supply the aviation industry with the sufficient amount of biojetfuel, should a biofuel revolution take place?

Six times the area of all the fields in the world.
That is, 68 percent of the total land area on Earth.
#climate #aviation
Let me explain why.
Earlier this year, a long-distance flight was performed by Qantas, using 10% biofuel. 150 acres of mustard was required for this flight.
Suppose that we would replace all fossil jetfuel with 100% biojetfuel with the same area requirements as Qantas' flight.
Also, suppose that roughly 1/4 of all flights are long-distance & that short-distance flights require 75% less fuel than long-distance.
