Play

The latest developments in the worldwide Ebola virus outbreak, and how it is and will impact air travel. Will stepped up screening efforts have any significant impact in combatting the spread of this deadly virus? Many people are skeptical.

The Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport opened their new runway, 10R/28L on September 18th. The 8,000 foot runway will help to increase capacity at the airport, while decreasing delays.

Aeromexico Flight 18 was rolling for takeoff on LAX’s Runway 25R last weekend, when the number 1 left main gear tire failed. The pilots initiated a high speed abort. After it was determined that no fire was present, the captain elected to keep the passengers onboard, and later deplaned onto the runway via air stairs.

Other news events discussed: FAA issues order to replace Honeywell cockpit displays on certain B-737 and B-777 aircraft. Two Ryanair jets collide while taxiing in Dublin. Another snippy Delta pilot on the radio, and a stuck mic episode, this time WestJet.
