Quick tip: Pilot's love their mama's apart from the case of the black box recording of a pilot's last words which were "I love you mama" (to be covered in this blog later) a vast majority of them never forget to send mother's day flowers.

Good pilots are like diamond jewelry; they never really age.

Airplane Flight TWA 800, We Remember You...

How does an airplane suddenly just explode in mid-air? That was the mystery that has for a long time puzzled and nagged at investigators into the Trans World Airlines flight 800 crash of July 17, 1996.

They thoroughly investigated every possible cause, including that of a surface to air missile being fired at the aircraft, as the nation reeled in shock and grief at the loss of all the 230 precious souls aboard.

While on a flight from New York to Paris, TWA flight 800 suddenly exploded, broke up and crashed into the Atlantic Ocean off Long island, New York.

Finally, detailed painstaking investigations that included reassembling the airline from debris fished out of the Atlantic paid off and the NTSB were able to announce a probable cause that evidence pointed to being very close to the truth of what really happened.

The investigator’s findings were based on a close examination of the reassembled accident aircraft and evidence of a short circuit in the retrieved black box (flight recorder) recording amongst a host of other supporting facts.

Probable cause was an explosion of the center wing fuel tank resulting from ignition of the flammable fuel/air mixture in the tank. Likely source of ignition energy for the explosion was a short circuit outside of the center wing tank that allowed excessive voltage to enter it through electrical wiring linked to the fuel quantity indication system of the aircraft.

Below we carry the fascinating transcript of Air Traffic Control communication with eyewitness aircraft that were around the area at the time of the crash.

But not everybody agrees with the NTSB findings. Read the facts and theories on this controversial air accident.

However if you read the transcript below carefully, it seems to back-up the NTSB findings.

Historically, the great turning point for Orlando came with the 1880 South Florida Railroad extension into Orlando from Sanford and the rest of the nation which enabled Central Florida’s fledgling Citrus Industry to rapidly expand with easy access to Northern markets. Today, Orlando is without doubt the number one tourist destination in the world, welcoming more than 43 million tourists annually. That also makes it a hot real estate destination. Anybody with an eye for Orlando Real Estate Agent will be interested in contacting Buyers Broker of Florida, a unique exclusive Buyer Agency Office that always represents the best interest of the homebuyer and not that of the seller like so many others do to the homebuyers great disadvantage.


The A380’s Largest Customer

They’ve Ordered 43!

So what is Emirates up to ordering such a huge number of one particular airplane that Boeing still insists is not viable? The Middle East Airline has ordered 43 units of the A380. Or 27 per cent of all orders placed for this aircraft so far.

One of the most successful commercial airplanes in the world is definitely seeing something that this blog and Airbus have seen.

With firm orders having reached a staggering 159 for this giant of an airplane, it seems that a lot of people not only agree with what this blog is saying, but they’re prepared to put big money on the table to prove it.

A380 Success To Wipe Out Smaller Jumbo Jets?

The really scary thing about the A380 super jumbo jet airplane becoming the major success it seems set to be is that its’ success could wipe out smaller jumbo jets.

Here’s how.

By being able to carry so many more passengers (850 plus) it means that the fare per passenger can be dramatically reduced, which will increase passenger volumes even further.

This will in turn leave the much smaller jumbo jet airplanes in a problem. Their economy class special offer will suddenly be too hefty. So what will they do? Fly exclusive first class passengers only? The problem is that the numbers to go round are probably not there. And besides the A380 with its’ huge space can be turned into a luxury airline complete with Casino’s, restaurants, fountains etc.

In other words, any airline that does not have an A380 in its’ fleet will be at a great disadvantage… and soon in serious trouble as all passengers head towards the super jumbo jet.

It gets even scarier. Any manufacturer without an airplane of such size will suddenly find themselves in a rather awkward position as it will rapidly become more difficult to sell anything other than a super jumbo with a seating capacity of 850 plus. It gets even more complex when you don’t even have such an airplane on your drawing boards.

Your name is Boeing and you’ve just woken up from this terrible nightmare that has left you shaking like a leaf and drenched in sweat… Don’t worry, It was just some bad dream that will never come true. Or was it?

The truth is that contrary to what most people think, prices have not gone up, it is just that our paper money has lost a lot of value, more so because it is no longer backed by real money, real silver and gold. Did you know that the same weight in silver still buys gas at the price of decades ago (25 cents a gallon). That’s why investment experts have long-recommend portfolio diversification and that 20% or more of an investor's assets be devoted to tangible assets such as gold, silver and platinum bullion and bullion coins. This is a prudent asset diversification strategy critical in today’s uncertain world that is made possible by Monex a company that has been helping clients buy gold bullion since 1967.

Major Turbulence follows Airbus A380 Airplane

Reduction in Cost-Advantage Selling Point?

The Airbus A380 airplane has certainly been causing major waves in the airline industry since its’ inception on the drawing boards and right up to its’ dramatic test flight last year and even to this moment as we anxiously wait for it to come into service.

Now even other aircrafts are due to be affected by the A380s’ turbulence. Initial safety guide lines indicate that airplanes will have to fly at least twice the normal distance behind the new Airbus A380 superjumbo to avoid the potential dangers from its’ powerful wake.

The official word out based on data analysis of A380 flight tests, is that this bird produces significantly stronger air turbulence and naturally over wider distances than the largest airplanes now in service.

For those in love with numbers this means minimum separation of 10 nautical miles instead of the current 5, for the largest airlines. Although these figures are initial estimates and will almost certainly be revised, they give a good indication of what is to be expected.

Critics of the A380 now say that the airline will dramatically increase congestion at major airports.

So why may all this be significant to sales?

Some analysts feel that the rule of delaying the touch down of the following aircraft much more than usual may reduce cost advantage selling points of the behemoth of an aircraft which is in fact supposed to greatly increase efficiency at congested airports around the world.

The A380 airplane is capable of carrying up to approximately 850 passengers.

Nancy Burpee is a world class paralympic swimmer, who has set world records in the 50 and 100 yards freestyle but was disqualified and thus effectively locked out from the 2004 Paralympic Games held in Athens, Greece on a procedural technicality. Law firm simmons jannace & stagg represented her in an effort to have the disqualification overturned and argued that the Australian referee showed bias against Ms. Burpee by making various comments indicating that the Australian referee did not want Ms. Burpee competing against an Australian paralympic swimmer at the games.
