Sorry I was probably a bit rude before. I would honestly be interested in seeing that picture, look forward to it.

I read fine and dandy.Trust me if it was at 200 ft, you could see what colour eyes the pilot had. You are also contradicting yourself here. In your First post you said it was night, then you say it was dusk. If its happened twice maybe you should keep a torch and a camera ready for the next time.

MCRO, your answer is technically correct, however an Airline that operates in Europe would have far stricter rules laid down in its A.O.C.

Ok then f-14, What colour was it. If its a Ryanair or Aer Lingus we can call the flight safety Department and clear it up.

Which proves my point that there will always be a hardcore of people who will whinge no matter what you do for them. Some people seem to be a fountain of negativity. If the world was run by them we would still be living in caves.

Flyer, I am by no means an authourity on this subject. I can offer you an opinion based on what I have read and heard elsewhere. I've filled out a few (More then I care to remember at this stage!) Job application forms. I've never seen a mention of any questions regarding driving history. Many will ...

F-14, I have to be honest I am very sceptical that an Airliner of that size would be flying that low so far from a Major Airport. Are you pilot rated yourself? Would you have an objective view of what, quote, "200-300ft" Would look like? How good are your aircraft recognition skills? Something that ...

Any Machine you like

If you won the lotto or could wind back time, or both, and you could choose any airplane you want, What would it be? I'd love to fly a Pilatus Porter into the Hillside airport in the movie "Air America" That influenced me to start flying. I'd also love to Fly a Twin Otter in Canada and a DC-3. Oh we...

I don't think we should be feeling guilty about talking about it. I have certainly learned a lot from reading the responses on the other threads. I think the one that scares me most is partial panel recognition in IMC. I can fly partial panel, once its recognised , to a standard that I am happy with...

Bus Crash Near Navan

Have just been looking at the awful scenes on the News this evening of the Bus Crash which killed a number of school children near Navan. The Report showed three Air Corps Helis landing in an adjacent field to transfer the injured to hospital. I was wondering, and it is not a criticism, why they wer...

Well they say if you fly piston singles long enough you will have one. Thats why I get funny about Night/IFR/Over water without a bakup plan in a single. If I could pick an airplane it would be a Piper Arrow, Pick anythwhere directly underneath you, drop the Gear and Flaps, Prop forward and you coul...

Anyone had and Engine Failure?

Following on from my "Flying over Water" in a similar pessimistic vein, has anyone suffered an engine failure or a major in flight emergency. I've been OK so far (touches wood) had a faulty Gear indication in a Duchess and got the "appliances" and all the other Bells and Whistles out just in case bu...
