Hmmm..Ok, random stealth cessna appears and lands nose first, whatever, plenty of folks here to speculate on that. My question though, is how did this thing sit so close to the runway / taxiway and no one saw it FOR 7 HOURS?!?! I get it, fog was bad, but even so airport ops / airport cops do runway & taxiway sweeps all night long (least at my airport they do anyway). I would imagine even in 1/4 mile vis that would be kinda hard to miss, especially if it did in fact burn for any length of time. So, did they take the night off?
Well, at least they made it to cruise. Our couple on a DL 737-200 didn't even make it outta the gate. The flight crew asked us to "Bump" the pushback a few times to give them incentive to wrap it up. Dunno if that hindered or helped the situation in the lav, but it got the point across. No one was kicked off the flight or arrested, but everyone got a good laugh out of it and life went on.
Yeah, well, lets be honest here. Just about everything is the end of the world in California. Surprised they don't sell bananas with a warning label to stop people from potential potassium poisoning. After all, it would only take you eating 500 of them in 30 seconds to kill you lol. Sorry, I just think this whole mess is silly.
Again, tougher generation that knew the difference between an honest to god BOMB and a little water bottle with some dry ice. In this day and age over reacting seems to be the status quo to everything... Oh well.
Sides, you've got more to worry about from the birds in the cockpit taking a nap in flight or a grease monkey leaving a lug wrench in the control cables. Those things actually have real adverse effects on aircraft lol.
LMAO, oh man that takes me back. Dry ice bars from RON aircraft and tons of left over mini Dasani water bottles.... Ahhh, if only we lived in the world of 50 years ago, we'd all get a good laugh about this, someone would get their butt chewed a bit, and we'd all move on.... Sad we live in this one. Its been going on for years at airports all over the planet folks, this is nothing new. To call one of these things a bomb is just a bit HYSTERICAL to say the least. Makes a loud bang, scares the crap out of anyone nearby, not gonna crash an ur-plane lol. Oh well, someone is getting fired in any event.
FINALLY! Jeez, took long enough.... Then again its the FAA, so whose surprised right? The only reason I personally care is that we can finally get to take pics and videos of the take offs and landings without being harassed by the FAs about electronic hazards and crap lol.
