1/72 RAF Nimrod R1(P) - modelled (roughly!) on the Cosford (formerly Waddington) Nimrod - this kit has been in my stash for some time. @Airfix #airfix #nimrod #avgeek #avgeeks #pilot #aviation
Overall this was quite a nice kit with minimal filler. Quite a few errors and inaccuracies (gear config and windows - got me..)
I took some artistic licence and added some minor modifications just because it pleased me to do so..
The R1 was a secretive ISTAR aircraft - its role and capabilities largely remain classified . The aircraft was still very capable when it retired, and it was replaced, ironically, by the Boeing Rivet Joint salvaged from the desert boneyard!

A little #InsideBaseball as to how #United328’s engine problem was handled, from a #B777’s #pilot point of view.. Although startling for both #flightcrew and passengers, an engine issue such as this one is something we constantly train and plan for.. Image
As I mentioned on previous tweet, the aircraft handling aspect of the situation is quite normal in that the jet would have, by this point in the flight, most likely have been on autopilot, but if not, the Thrust Asymmetry Compensation (TAC) system works the same way.. Image
In simple terms, the system compares engine parameters, and when it detects that one engine’s rotational velocity is higher than the other by a specific percentage, it applies rudder trim inputs to compensate for what it interprets as disimilar thrust..… Image

Six #Pakistani pilots spoke to @AlJazeera about allegations of fraud and improper flight certification practices.

@Official_PIA #CAA where art thou?

#MarshalMalik #ArCmdrHamdani firing pilots without show cause notice. Unheard off!…
Government's list had a number of errors such as including the names of deceased pilots, confusing pilots with similar names, and classifying pilots as belonging to airlines they had never flown with or taking exams they never attempted.

#CAA @Official_PIA @PALPA2020
Pilot A said that he had been approached by colleagues with an offer to help him cheat, with the aid of #PCAA officials, in exchange for payment when he had been attempting his commercial pilot's licence (CPL) written exams in 2009.

[THREAD] : While other kids in Lusoi Primary School in Nyeri played regular games, Samuel Mwaura Muthinji spent his time creating aircraft models from iron sheets. Muthinji was fascinated by how huge heavy metallic objects floated in the air and moved from one point to another. Capt. Samuel Muthinji sits in the Dash 8-Q400 cockpit.
His enchantment for flying came at a tender age and he then developed an utmost adoration for flying. After completing his primary school in Nyeri, Muthinji enrolled in Moi Forces Academy near the Moi Air Base in the Eastleigh suburb for his secondary education.
Everyday, when coming out of class heading to the dormitory, Muthinji observed the landing of the aircraft at the nearby Air Base. He made a vow to his peers that one day one time he will become a pilot.

Completely random career aspirations you wouldn’t know I have in the back of my mind: 1) Commerical Airline #Pilot, cause I’ve yet to hear a female pilot on any ✈️ I’ve ever been on. Probably because only 5.8% of the world’s pilots are female. The industry also needs more pilots.
2)WWE diva! I have fond memories watching the dramatics of TV wrestling with my Abuelo. Some of his fave wrestlers were the divas, so I’d imagine he’d think it’s pretty cool his granddaughter became one. Also, a toy made in my character?! & it’s likely I’d meet the Rock or Bellas
Anyone else want to share yours?! I’m all 👂🏼. Also tagging @RFuld @AustinLieb @CareerCoachKels cause I really want to know haha

My friend and erstwhile colleague @GovindSankar reminded me of this.
In 1994, I was elated at being accepted by the super-prestigious Tata Administrative Service, #TAS right after my #MBA . I was even more thrilled when I was chosen to be a part of the Tata Singapore Airlines JV start a world class airline in India - perhaps the most exciting thing happening in Indian aviation, if not Indian industry, at that time. Very few people know that the original inspiration for Singapore Airlines was JRD Tata’s @airindiain -
– then amongst the best airlines in the world. The bureaucrats from #Singapore came to learn from him and his company on how to build a world-class airline out of Singapore.
