Oh - and failure of a critical engine at V1 (which one would it be though - rather depends which way we're going around the roundabout!)

Just makes me wish I was fifteen years younger and an AWFUL lot richer.  Such an opportunity for somebody with cash and a passion for gorgeous aircraft...

I spend a lot of my professional career assessing how folk line-up & descend on straight runways.  And this is with fairly stable headwinds & crosswinds (which go out of the door as you start turning at a constant rate).

Whoever thought this up has clearly never flown a real aeroplane...  Absolute 'la-la land' frankly.

Approaches & attempted landings on circular runways would be absolute carnage! (And I think I'm happy to be quoted on that).

I would have thought the suggestion that it will avoid being hit by a cross-wind would not be correct!

Depending how far around the circle it is necessary to travel on approach, surely you are guaranteed to encounter a cross-wind, whichever direction the wind is blowing from!  ???

Presumably whoever thought up this idea had forgotten the fundamentals of taking off and landing into wind, never mind how much rudder work this would take...

Sam,
It's not a special list, they are targeted lists, based on what that person has been interested in before. The whole idea is that we can reduce the commercial calls to those that are more likely to want to hear about them, then bring in more editorials and interesting stories to the regular Friday editions. (Not going to happen just yet though...)

Idea of the 'segmented' lists is to reduce costs while maximising income.
We can only talk more about XH558 when there is something happening to her, which on the basis of tonights edition, might be sooner if funds keep coming in.

Yes, Founding Guardians scheme is being re-energised and moving onwards now 2017 is secure to cover basic survival of the Trust.


Cliff, you are on the system and they are going to you, so check your SPAM/other folders. Will update the archive soon, so you can view online if worst happens.

Cheers.
