MaxSez: Man those 3 hole’rrrs (Both Models) are tough birds to master. Been on that Solo attempting to refine landing tech In cross winds more times than once so far, I feel like a Fledgling when I strap on the beast which I initially said was a Lady. I lied to myself apparently.
Now for the wheat, you had the chaff in the opener, Just had a bad go into MIA in an MD-11, inbound on the ILS, hit the APPR on Base got a Heavy (over MLW) Warning and No Joy, went around. Trainee Controller was Top Notch (Missed his Handle in the rush). Used the new Fuel Dump mode for the first time, “Magic”. Who ever programmed this complex routine is aces in my book. Lost WIFI next attempt. Oh, My, Busted.
Here’s a fact and a recommendation. Don’t get in a hurry fuel planning or you’ll look like a Peanut and you’ll be PO’d at yourself for hours. Work the numbers and check them twice!
