There's a documentary on Nat Geo at 9pm tonight on how US ATC managed to get all airborne flights to land on 9\11. May interest some here.

Was camping in Crawfordsburn outside Bangor all weekend - basically right below the point traffic departing Belfast City turns to the south.

Was surprised by the noise of the ASL 737-300 (had me reaching for flight radar as its much noisier than the more regular A320 traffic). A BA A320-NEO went over a while later with hardly more than a whisper. They really have made massive strides in noise reduction...

Odd thing with the noise at different levels is that the one type I can consistently here hear (on one of the approaches to 10 at DUB) is an A320 without the vortex generator SPC added on approach. Can't hear anything else at all, really - even types that would be a lot louder lower down.

some city airports were imposing fines of the order of ten grand a day to airlines that didnt fit the vortex generators....it's to stop the blow-air-over-the-top-of-a-bottle noise that the hole in the wing generated.

She got off lightly. Won't be taking any cheap city breaks for a while though...

A drunken Ryanair passenger was in such a state that she thought she was still in Spain when arrested by gardai on her return to Shannon airport from Alicante last month, a court has heard.

Her solicitor John Casey told the court Ms Bradshaw is a nervous flyer and “a toxic mix” of consuming alcohol and prescription medication had resulted in her behaviour on the Shannon bound flight.

Giving an outline of the facts, Sgt Aiden Lonergan said Ms Bradshaw, a single mother, had consumed her own alcohol, bottles of Bailey’s Irish Cream and Smirnoff vodka while she had also smoked a cigarette.

He said Ms Bradshaw was abusive and insulting to flight staff and passengers causing considerable distress to all on board. She was arrested by gardai at Shannon after the flight landed.

Judge King said he would give Ms Bradshaw the Probation Act if she paid €500 into the court poor box and said that she had escaped a conviction over her prior good behaviour and absence of any convictions.

Does anyone know anything about "Intercon Air (Ireland)"? I was watching the 80s movie Delta Force and the boys were doing some training on a broken 707 with that name on it. I googled to see if it was real and there are a handful of photos of it taken in the 70s (apparently at Shannon and Manston at least), but I can't seem to find any information on the airline, which I'd never heard of before.

I notice someone stuck the livery on a plane in Flight Sim X too.

I also saw that the main plane in the movie was used by Aer Lingus for a time.

Are C-series already in service not going to be redesignated as A220?

As far as AOC/CofA and other official documents go, they are all BD-500-1A10 for A220-100 and BD-500-1A11 for A220-300 anyway.

A220 is just a marketing name and both EU operators refer to them as airbuses now, regardless when they were made
