better clip with less buffering issues (for me anyway)
If you listen carefully to one of the pilots accents he certainly sounds Oz
ah, I was on silent movie mode as i was on the phone when watching it
The Aviationist does make the point, and I think rightfully so, it looks like a mere mock up. Hard to believe FARS.
Geez balls of steel, would be interesting if they put a list of exchange postings for the ADF and vice-versa, with roles performed for general info.
This new ban is pretty disturbing. As a long time flyer, I still miss real china plates, metal knives and forks, and wine glasses actually made of glass. Now a few flights originating from certain countries will not allow laptops or tablets as carry on items. I can't imagine the chaos for the road-warrior class in NA if devices must be checked...then again if everyone has to check luggage the frigging planes might get away from the gates faster as passengers won't be trying to fit carry-ons into non-existent overhead bins.
Excuse the one liner from a newbie but my concern is that all of these devices have lithium batteries and will now be in the baggage hold.
If they are in the cabin the flight crew have procedures for dealing with a lithium fire, in the hold, it is a potential disaster
One would think that, so I get the impression that this may have not been fully thought through.
You definitely didn't post a one liner so nothing to forgive
Don't quote me on it, but on fox the have a show called Air Crash Investigation. One episode dealt with fire in the cargo holds, they whete talking about introducing new fire control methods etc etc. whilst fire is an extreme emergency it's seems that they my have taken the lessons on board.
That would be the FAA in that case but it's not them making the rules in this case. That will be most likely State and / or Homeland Security.
Perhaps manufacturers will be mandated to have removeable batteries with their devices and only batteries will be banned. Have Trump's minions been buying battery stocks lately?
Sorry I quoted the wrong person, was ment to be in reply about fires and procedures from air crew, not really related to the reasons why of the ban.
Aviation Week article on the ban.

Here's a link suggesting the USN Seal raid in Yemen may be the reason for the new portablel device ban from certain airlines in the ME.

some of these things are already starting to appear as mainstream within niche entities, (3D parts ad-hoc manufacturing springs to mind)
my own view is that for ad-hoc 3D printing to become more mainstream for parts manufacturing then that requires a corresponding drop in 3D scanning costs and portability
