Delay of IATA Carry on Restrictions, Airplane Duct Tape Fix, Portland Airport Socks, How to Land a Plane in the Dark

Some cool stuff around the web today, so I figured I’d share another post with some things to watch out for:

  • IATA has delayed it’s “Cabin OK” program whereby they would create an internationally used standard size carry-on, which would allow passengers to seamless carry bags between airlines without having to worry about different sizes allowed. The restriction also places an “IATA approved” logo on the bag so airline personnel know that it fits the regulation size.

  • KLM has come out with another fascinating video, this time showing how to land a plane in the dark. Watch how this 747 lands in Kilimanjaro from Amsterdam.

    I’m disappointed you posted the “duct tape” piece especially the “scary” remark. There’s nothing scary about it as the aircraft would be withdrawn from service until repaired had it been dangerous.

    Patrick Smith of the “Ask the Pilot” website once mentioned that this is special aviation quality tape often used for minor repairs until the damaged component/issue can be fixed.

    Leave the trash journalism to the trashy media.

      While it may be safe according to the professionals, that still doesn’t mean it can’t be scary to passengers. Personally, whether safe or not, that’s something I don’t want to see out of my window. Something safe can still be scary…
