well, it's about time the media started digging, I mean, they're (Airbus, and they better check not only the 320, but the 318,319, and 321, and when that's done , the older A300,310, and the 330's and 340s, never can be too careful) falling from the sky right and left. Without them (Geraldo and crew) to scare the public into flying on the highly regulated and scrutinized aircraft, they'd be sheep following each other off the cliff! I commend Geraldo for his forward thinking, or lack of ratings
, whichever is the case.
What a putz!
another one of those airbus Haters.LMAO
I took it has pfp217 being sarcastic. Reread the portion of the last line that I highlighted.
yea i got the gist of it and it is funny wouldnt you say. i was joking in the reply. I dont care if he was a hater, to each his or her own.
Oh yeah, just being sarcastic.
I can't really think of an aircraft I dislike (except for that stupid flying car in that other post) ...I just love it how 1 airplane gets brought down by what is pretty surely a flock of birds, big ones too, and now it's the whole brand , there's a problem with them all don't fly on them. For those who write this stuff for the news outlets, stop and think about how much scrutiny goes into the MX of an airliner, as opposed , to say, the dip !@!$ next to you on the freeway of which you have know idea if the lugnuts on his wheels are even tight let alone of if he's drunk, high, licensed, etc etc.
We have a pretty good aviation system, with procedures and practices. Accidents will happen from time to time, but that's the way it is. The system provides procedures and practices that make the entire aviation system one of the safest modes of transportation.
No Airbus hating, I do like the Boeing family a little better, but I've been on both, no problem with either, and have a pretty good feeling that the whole A320 fleet is not more susceptable to hitting flocks of birds than any other airplane....as they say !@#$ happens! In this case one cool cockpit and cabin crew followed the "system" and everyone got home.
