Flight MH370 - The more you think the more you puzzle. We have now entered the 5th day since the flight MH370 went missing. Scenarios have changed and so have changed the locations and techniques to find out the aircraft.   But the latest updates still raise questions that cannot be logically answered. Some people say that we shouldn’t bother about flight MH370, investigators deployed on the job will do it themselves. My point is that as an aircraft maintenance community if we are not going to t...

    SAN FRANCISCO - When Asiana Airlines Flight 214 crashed on landing at San Francisco International Airport on July 6 last year, the first person to call for an immediate evacuation of the Boeing 777 was a flight attendant, Tae Sik Yoo.Mr. Yoo described seeing smoke and fire through the window. When the captain's first instruction was for passengers to remain seated, Mr. Yoo said he concluded that the pilot had not seen the flames. So he disregarded the announcement from the cockpit and told t...

All types of fuel used in aircraft may ignite when there is a sufficient amount of oxygen and a source of ignition as the mixture is required for the combustion process of the fuel and air is presentNaturally during the process of the transfer of fuel to and from the plane to keep it from any source to be flammable during the process of transferring fuel and these sources:Cigarette or any other source of flame burning until the spark that runs from the exhaust of some trucks and the most importa...

Why avoids Engineers use a pencil for marking metals? Minerals interact electrically with each other, so begins a series of interactions.As it happens in metals, some non-metallic materials have the properties of electric and participate in interactions and (carbon) is one of these materials and falls on the list of the reactants not only that, but the all-metal (lose) electronics during these interactions, and this is something common among them,While carbon (gain) electronics when interactin...

  (FLAPS) classified flap substrata control secondary (Secondary control surface), being the surfaces do not control the movement of the aircraft in a manner that directly and are therefore not used to steer the plane, but to increase the value of the total lifting on the wings at takeoff and landing. When quitting be necessary to provide value exceeds the value of raising the weight of the aircraft, while landing at the low speed of the plane requires the provision of the aircraft can provide t...

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ - Airspeed Indicator is a differential pressure gauge that measures the dynamic pressure of the air through which the aircraft is flying , Dynamic pressure is the difference in the ambient static air pressure and the total, or ram, pressure caused by the motion of the aircraft through the air. These two pressures are taken from the pitot-static system.Most Airspeed Indicators are calibrated in knots , or nautical miles per hour , some instruments show statute miles per ...

Why Planes Not Destroyed in lightning ? Since the outer skin of most airplanes is primarily aluminum, which is a very good conductor of electricity; the secret to safe lightning hits is to allow the current to flow through the skin from the point of impact to some other point without interruption or diversion to the interior of the aircraft. Estimates show that each commercial airliner averages one lighting hit per year but the last crash that was attributed to lightning was in 1967 when the f...

There is an enormous number of different urban legends about air travels. Some of them have terrifying background, while the other are very amusing. Here are the most popular myths.Opening Airplane Doors During FlightThere is a rumor that the doors on the plane can be easily opened during the flight. Case studies show that it is almost impossible, as the cabin is pressurized and the difference in pressure inside and outside is just enormous. Hole in the Plane Can Suck InHollywood movies often sh...

SpiceJet pilots to double as engineers at smaller airports                                                                     Spicejet fliers could be travelling in a poorly serviced plane or with a fatigued pilot. The no-frill airline has begun using its Boeing B737 fleet cockpit crew as engineers at smaller airports. One out of every five domestic fliers travels by the airline. Pilots are faced with additional pressure to maintain a 30-minute turnaround time for the next flight despite the du...

As the Dreamliner faces renewed scrutiny, we look back at the delays and problems that have hindered it for nearly six years.     TIMELINE OF BOEING 787-- April 26, 2004 – All Nippon Airways (ANA) becomes the launch customer for the Dreamliner, with the first of 50 planes to be delivered in 2008. By the end of 2004, total orders had reached 237. First flight scheduled for autumn 2007. July 8, 2007 – first 787 unveiled at Boeing’s Everett assembly factory, with 677 orders already received. Ini...

A ram air turbine (commonly known by the acronym RAT) is a small turbine that is connected to a hydraulic pump, or electrical generator, installed in an aircraft and used as a power source. The RAT generates power from the airstream due to the speed of the aircraft.   RAT is nothing but a windmilling turbine.As long as one can supply it with sufficient air it will run.once gear down the air flow is disturbed and hence stalls at140 (old RAT) 125 (newRAT). In the electrical scenario, the RAT exte...
