Is flying really as safe as they say? The history shows that the more they fly the more that crash. So why has maintenance and pilot qualifications become less important? Are we flying more airplanes than the industry and infrastructure can support? There seems to be a supply and demand problem when it come to operating an airline and its aircraft, so rather than fix the problem the CEO's farm out the work and pay as little as they can. When an airplane goes down why is it always someone else's fault and never the fault of the executives calling the shots.

The latest news from the BBC. Apparently, the co pilots girlfriend had just broken up with him. Good reason to kill yourself and 150 other people.

WHAT?? WHO IS MONITORING THESE PEOPLE?

subject ~ Lufthansa Crash
message ~

I am curious though how this plane was flown into the ground. Airbus is designed to keep the plane out of critical situations - no matter what the pilot wants to do. If the co-pilot truly flew this plane into the ground, he would have either had to turn off all the computers, or put the plane in landing mode - at least that's what I remember from my A320 maintenance days.

Apparently it is dangerous to go pee. We should all wear depends, ie "diapers" . You can buy them at Walgreens, just in case your co-worker decides to stab you in the back, and take away your job, the honor of your profession, and your life!
Better to just stay in your chair, and pee in your pants.

According to CNN the plane went from 30,000 altitude to 1000 altitude in 9 minutes, before it hit the side of the mountain. Would that qualify as landing mode?

I do feel sorry for the main pilot. According to CNN, he first knocked on the door then tried to pound it in. Why couldn't he have done that?? What did he do during those nine minutes? Why didn't he set the door on fire? Why didn't he ramicade it? He could have used the stewardesses carts as battery, told all the crew to thrust it as hard as possible, repeatedly.

What did he do during those 9 minutes? It is a long time in an emergency. Freek out?
Read everyone on board their last rites? apologized to the passengers for having to go pee??
Still somehow, if I was there, that door would have been destroyed, somehow, I am sure, powers beyond myself could have achieved that. And that nasty co pilot would have died by strangulation of my own possessed hands.

Monday morning quarterback?  In all fairness, 8 or 9 minutes goes by very fast.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the victims of this tragedy.

Scabs got what they wanted, their jobs back. They didn't care who they had to suck to get their jobs back. Hey Mary? Scabs being scabs condoned what they did using a myriad of excuses. But in the long run when the weak started to cave in others followed. Honorable men know what they are and like someone once said, "integrity is a mans gift to himself".

What do you think of these reports, coming out of the news? I think it is unfortunately, a high probability of pilot suicide.
Evidence the co-pilot was locked out of the cockpit. Reports the plane flew straight into a mountain?
Well I have heard of pilots doing strange things like this once or twice before. Who is monitoring their mental status??
Who gives them the gall to take down 150 innocent lives with them? How arrogant are they?

Really if they want to commit suicide, they could do it privately. Not that I don't think their souls will be damned to Hell, either way. But when you take down 150 others with you, your soul will be damned to Super Hell. Well, that's what I think happened. What do you think??

Given the fact that the plane would have been flying on outpilot and navigating by the on board computers, I would suggest your scenario. Funny how the news is not revealing any information about that co-pilot. Yet.

subject ~ Airplane Crashes
message ~

There have been a lot of news over the last couple of years about airplanes going down, airplanes being lost, the cause unknown.
Check out "France 24" headlines, high number of crashes in 2013 and 2014. (I just read it on my "smart phone," tried to copy and paste it, but it didn't quite work.)
Still, little commentary about how the world of airplane mechanical surveillance and maintenance has changed. Only you and I know that. It is a greatly kept big secret.
Why all these planes have gone down, hasn't been determined. In fact, there are even some dead from these crashes, that remain unburied, unfound.

Does anyone think this crap is happening a bit more now. Thanks to the thinking of people like Dick Anderson / The New Northwest, Frank Lorenzo's & Reagan, the professionals are gone and their replacements don't know what they are doing. Safety begins on the ground. Without it you end up in the ground. How many airplanes must crash before the people wake up and realize the work isn't getting done?

So when is the last time a commercial airliner crashed and killed everyone on board due to a mechanic making a mistake? Its a good damn thing transport aircraft are designed and built the way they are otherwise we would have had a lot more smoking holes. Flyin is far more safer than it was in the 60's , 70's, 80s. People will always make mistakes, good mechs, honorable mechs and SCAB cock*&%$er mechs. Yes even the SCABS are human. 3 major events during the last year and none of it having to do with maintenance. If you really think we have that much influence on a commercial jets airworthiness then you must have always been a check hangar corrosion grinder or a shop mechanic and have no real clue what goes on on the line.

Subject ~ Delta like to fly and it be show
message ~

I think it is sweet that many of our own Honorable tell of their love for Delta. "Delta treats us right" They are forgetting that the same ones at delta today are the same cocksu**ers that were in charge while our union was getting busted. Just the same I'm glad they are "treated right", it took the loss of thousands of jobs so they could be "treated right" and work along side some of the most untrustworthy bastards in aviation maintenance.

They might also remember that Delta kept unions off the property by paying their free loaders a nickel or dime more every time a union man got a contract.


I'll give you the 5 or 10 cent bone they've kept up on to keep unions out but I think you might want to check your facts on who's running delta now vs back in 2005. King Richard was not there, nor were the Fat F#$% Gorman. So who might you be talking about.

Hey does anyone like the snow? I think I might stand alone on this one , once again, but I think it is great.
Well my husband, fixes snow-blowers and lawnmowers now. Little snow to blow this year, and if we don't start getting more precipitation, there will be little grass to mow. (He used to fix airplanes.)
Well I think the farmers, might be happy too! My friends at my work just complained, "I just got my car washed." It is going to be a nasty drive home."

All for One, and No One for All.

They'd only be sorry if this drought continues to the point where their groceries go sky high. Then they'd bitch incessantly.

subject ~ Profit sharing checks, something to ponder
message ~

Delta profit sharing checks, tell those that are so happy with delter that they had better save those profits sharing checks. Why? Because aside from the few Honorable and filthy scabs that have union negotiated federally protected pensions already locked in after the merger with redass, no one has a pension. So much for Delta taking care of you! Let's see, and oh yes if you retire or are forced out prior to reaching Medicare age, you won't have medical insurance unless you buy it. Delta got rid of pensions and paying retirees medical long before it merged with redass. So much for the old "delta treats us right rhetoric"

Soooooooooo, next time some idiot shows you his check, remind him they had better save those checks for medical insurance, that is if they can get medical insurance.

Twelve years ago Tampa line began to shut down. I suppose partly because of the turmoil the esteemed management team was generating for the eventual union busting. My recollection of James Drummond was he couldn't leave soon enough, he hated Tampa. Manual Alonzo, just a selfish IAM supporter with no idea of brotherhood. Stephan Kepple's own words, "I'm gonna ask Deller if the company can keep me on at Tampa".


Sounds like this scab's a real "go-getter" while working there in TPA pre strike. How's he now DTW? since he crossed ...
