Anyone following "Aviators Trolling" on facebook?

They're pretty funny sometimes

Saw a small trijet coming in to DUB earlier, falcon rather than a yak I imagine. Surprised a recent bizjet wouldn't have adsb

Paris Air Show have released their Aircraft List for June 2013. Apparently Qatar and Boeing are taking their 787 to the show. Qatar's will be static and Boeing's will do the flypast. A380, A320, A300 and A330 have been confirmed too. Not sure what airline it will be but rumours have it that the A380 will be BA's first jet. Who knows but I'd doubt it though. A400M has also been confirmed which I am delighted to hear as I haven't seen one of those before along with SU-35 from Sukhoi in Russia and AN-158 and -70 from Antonov!
I am disappointed at the lack of Boeing aircraft presented at the show. Only 787 but I was expecting a 777 to be there

Anyone having issues with Flightradar24 on Chrome? Having a strange issue whereby the map renders but the planes and airports don't show up. then if i try and scroll around the map the thing freezes. To make things stranger when I enter incognito mode, it works fine. It also works fine when i try it on IE and Firefox. I've clear my cache and all that and still no joy. This happening anyone else?

It works perfectly fine on my end. Using Chrome and there's no issues bar slow loading up. I don't have Mozilla to try it out but IE9 works fine too.

I wonder what they have in mind.

Also interesting: 56pc of traffic went through T1 last year. ALR operating out of T2 now should even it out, assuming it will carry 600-700,000 passengers from May to December.

Yes, The 757 has been working out really well as the replacement so they are fast tracking the 727 retirement which I believe was originally supposed to be at least 12 months away. They made major cost savings in fuel, maintenance and greater crew flexibility operating 2 vs 3 man crews with the 75 so it makes sence to fast track the demise of the 72 and push more 75s on the line sooner then later. End of an era though.

I'm guessing I'm somewhat behind the curve here, but when did airbus acquire CASA?

I'm going to take this wayyyyy off topic!

So the missus managed to talk me in to doing a spinning class there on Tuesday evening. Mother of god, I've never done anything like it!! I would consider myself fairly fit, I do a good bit of cycling and play a decent enough level of football, but this should be illegal. It was an introductory lesson - no doubt everyone remembers their first introductory flight and probably thinking "this is amazing", well introductory spinning is the opposite!

Anyone else tried it? Or what do the rest of you do when you're not talking about airplanes?


PS. Anyone know a good physio to help me recover??

The trainer uses the energie fitness on Shelbourne Road, but I think he's just using the facility there for the spinning class. Herself had done a few weeks working out in his own gym just off Ringsend Rd and found him to be very good. I found spinning to be very bad!
