Boeing is facing new issues with its 737 MAX, this time affecting 109 aircraft worldwide, including 71 in the United States. Boeing is now halting all deliveries of the type.

From Reuters:

“The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) on Wednesday ordered Boeing Company to fix bonding issues in the electrical systems of some of its 737 MAX planes that could lead to a loss of engine ice protection loss and critical functions on the flight deck.

The FAA said the issue affected 109 airplanes worldwide delivered to airlines, including 71 in the United States and warned the issue if not fixed “could affect the operation of certain systems, including engine ice protection, and result in loss of critical functions and/or multiple simultaneous flight deck effects, which may prevent continued safe flight and landing.”

The World’s Most Interesting Boeing 747 Uses

Avatar

Published

on

The iconic Boeing 747 has been inspiring generations of long-haul travelers for more than half a century. Taking large quantities of passengers and/or cargo to far-flung destinations is how it made its name, but did you know that there also are certain examples that have been used for other purposes? Let’s take a look at some of these modified jumbos.

Carrying the Space Shuttle

The Boeing 747 is no stranger to carrying unusual or outsize cargo. Indeed, Boeing even produced a special ‘Dreamlifter‘ version to transport 787 components between Japan and the US. However, a pair of NASA-owned examples took this a step further. Between 1977 and 2012, NASA utilized two jumbos to transport Space Shuttles.

The journey that this most often involved was between Edwards AFB, California to the Kennedy Space Center’s ‘Shuttle Landing Facility’ in Florida. What made these aircraft stand out was the fact that they carried the shuttle atop their fuselage! NASA sadly no longer operates such flights, but, for the 45 years that they did, they made for a spectacular sight.

An airborne missile defense system

The US Air Force has also operated modified 747s for a variety of purposes. One of these was an airborne missile defense aircraft known as the YAL-1. Originally a 747-400F, the USAF fitted this plane with a megawatt-class chemical oxygen-iodine laser (COIL).

The purpose of this airborne laser testbed aircraft was to use the aforementioned COIL to destroy inbound ballistic missiles. The YAL-1 first flew in 2002, but did not test-fire its low-power laser at an airborne target until five years later, in 2007.

January 2010 saw the first deployment of the YAL-1’s high-energy laser when it intercepted a test target. Shortly after, it succeeded in destroying a further two test missiles. However, funding was cut the same year, with the program canceled in 2011. After making its last flight in February 2012, the YAL-1 was eventually scrapped in September 2014.

SOFIA – an airborne observatory

Our next example takes us back to NASA, which has used the 747 for more than just shuttle carrying duties. Indeed, it also operates a modified short-fuselage 747SP, known as the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA).

NASA jointly operates SOFIA with the Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt (German Aerospace Center). It recently flew a series of missions from Cologne, Germany, after a maintenance period at Lufthansa Technik in Hamburg.  As seen in the photo above, SOFIA’s fuselage features a large telescope door towards the rear of the aircraft.

This allows a 2.5-meter wide telescope to make observations from a high altitude, of around 45,000 feet. Compared to ground-based telescopes, the benefit of this is that it avoids most of the atmosphere’s water vapor, which otherwise absorbs light. The result is clearer observations of the wonders of outer space during its 10-hour overnight missions.

Which of these unorthodox Boeing 747 uses is your favorite? Have you ever seen or even been onboard any of these special jumbos? Let us know your thoughts and experiences in the comments!

Mask Mandate Remains for Planes and Trains Under Relaxed Rules for Vaccinated Americans

Avatar

Published

on

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Thursday advised that fully vaccinated people do not need to wear masks outdoors and can avoid wearing them indoors in most places, updated guidance the agency said will allow life to begin to return to normal.

The CDC also said fully vaccinated people will not need to physically distance in most places. The agency also hopes the guidance will prod more Americans to get vaccinated.

“Big news from the CDC: If you’re fully vaccinated, you do not need to wear a mask – indoors or outdoors, in most settings,” the White House tweeted with a picture that said: “Fully Vaccinated People CAN STOP Wearing Masks.”

CDC Director Rochelle Walensky defended the easing of guidance just two weeks after its most recent update, citing a sharp reduction in cases, expansion of vaccines to younger people and vaccine efficacy against coronavirus variants.

“We followed the science here,” Walensky said adding, “a coalescence of more science that has emerged just in the last week.”

The CDC had faced criticism, even from public health officials, that it has been too cautious in its guidance. Critics have said people need to see more benefit of getting vaccinated in terms of returning to normal activities.

“In the past couple of weeks, we have seen additional data to show these vaccines work in the real world, they stand up to the variants, and vaccinated people are less likely to transmit the virus,” the agency said in a news release.

It added, “We needed to take the time to review the full body of evidence to get this right, and that’s how we came to this decision.”

The revised guidance is a major step toward returning to pre-pandemic life, but the agency still recommends vaccinated people wear masks on planes and trains, and at airports, transit hubs, mass transit and in places like hospitals and doctor’s offices.

The U.S. government last month extended mask requirements across transportation networks through Sept. 13. Walensky said the CDC plans too soon issued updated guidance for transit.

Masks became a political issues in the United States with then-President Donald Trump resisting mandating masks while President Joe Biden embraced masks and mandated them for transit hubs. Some U.S. states issued aggressive mask mandates while others declined or dropped them months ago.

The CDC said fully vaccinated people should still wear masks where required by federal, state, local, tribal or territorial laws, and abide by such rules and regulations, including from local businesses and workplace guidance.

In late April, the CDC said fully vaccinated people can safely engage in outdoor activities like walking and hiking without wearing masks, but recommended continuing to use face-coverings in public spaces where they are required.

Walensky said on Thursday immune-compromised individuals should consult doctors before shedding masks and emphasized people who have not been vaccinated should continue to wear them. She added vaccinated people who have COVID-19 symptoms should put masks back on.

Southwest Airlines Launches Major Hawaii Expansion

Avatar

Published

on

As much of the world remains shut to vacationing Americans, the world’s largest low-cost carrier Southwest Airlines is seizing the moment and launching a major expansion to Hawaii. The airline announced Thursday that, beginning June, it will be adding flights to four destinations on the Hawaiian Islands from Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and Phoenix.

Era of affordability

Flights will depart to Honolulu on Oahu, Kahului on Maui, Kona on the Island of Hawaii, and Lihue on Kauai from all three airports – LAS, LAX, and PHX. Most services will operate once or twice per day. The LAX to Kahului Airport (OGG) meanwhile will depart thrice daily.

Most routes will commence on June 6th, June 27th and 29th. However, passengers will need to wait until September 7th to fly nonstop from PHX to Kona and Lihue. One-way fares from PHX and LAS begin at $159, while customers can purchase tickets from LAX for as little as $129.

“We’re building on an era of affordability that Southwest initiated for Hawaii air travel. These new flights bring Hawaii service closer to more of our Customers who live near airports across the West, and make it possible to choose Southwest to fly between the Aloha State and cities as far east as Nashville, without spending an entire overnight in the air,” Andrew Watterson, Chief Commercial Officer & Executive Vice President for Southwest Airlines, said in a statement.

Added services from California gateways

The Dallas-based LCC is also adding flights to existing routes and adding services from airports already connecting the mainland to the Aloha State. Flights from San Diego (SAN) to Honolulu will double to twice per day from June 6th. The airline will also add services from SAN to the Island of Hawaii, Maui, and Kauai throughout the month.

Southwest Airlines said the increase in nonstop flights from San Diego is due to requests from both sides of the sea. Military travelers will especially benefit from the new, time-saving options, the airline believes. All additional and new services from SAN begin at $129 for a one-way ticket.

The all-Boeing 737 carrier is also adding services to Hawaii from other existing gateways in California. Flights from San Jose to Maui will increase to twice daily from June 6th. Long Beach will also get a twice-daily service to Honolulu from June 27th through September 6th. Flights from Oakland to Honolulu will depart three times per day between June 6th and September 6th.

Rebooting after two wobbly years

Southwest first launched flights to Hawaii only two years ago, following hard work from the airline to receive ETOPS certification. However, much of the airline’s plans were contingent on the 737 MAX 8, of which it was the launch customer.

While it managed to switch the MAX for its 737-800s, the time since have been marred by both the grounding of the MAX and the pandemic with Hawaii’s strict entry requirements to boot. Let’s hope this new launch of routes is the restart Southwest’s LCC Pacific adventure needs.

Are you excited to see more Southwest nonstop flights to the Aloha State? Leave a comment below and let us know.

NTM 2021 Spotters Day
Some of the highlights of the NTM2021 Spotter Day. (All images David Parody unless otherwise stated)

The second Spotter Day of NATO Tiger Meet (NTM) 2021 was held yesterday at Beja Air Base, Portugal. And here are some gorgeous shots.

The flying segment of this year’s edition of NATO Tiger Meet (NTM) 2021, organized by the Portuguese Air Force, at Beja Air Base, ended today, May 13, 2021, at lunch time. Some transports have already arrived at Air Base No. 11 (BA11) to pick things up as the drills officially finishes tomorrow.

We have already provided a lot of details about the exercise in a previous post we published after our correspondent David Parody, attended the exercise’s Media Day on May 3. David went again to Beja AB on May 12, for the second Spotter Day arranged by the Portuguese Air Force and NTM 2021’s host unit, the Squadron 301 “Jaguares”.

According to the Portuguese Air Force, about 160 photography and military aviation enthusiasts of various nationalities attended the NTM 2021 Spotter Day.

During the morning, they had the opportunity to watch and photograph an “Elephant Walk”, with 23 aircraft taxiing down the runway before take off.

During the afternoon, the spotter’s saw more take-offs and landings, including those of the F-16s from Poland, Greece and Portugal, the F-18s from Switzerland and the F-2000 Typhoons from Italy. Along with the fast jets, the Spotter Day featured some pretty interesting helicopter action, involving the Italian AB.212ICO and HH-101A Caesar helicopters of the 21° Gruppo (Squadron) of the Italian Air Force, which operated with the Portuguese EH-101 Merlin of the Esquadra 751.
