Anything you’d like to know about any of these incidents/accidents just ask and I’ll get you the information


Great! The community needs people like you to pick up the slack.
Thanks - BAWHeavy

Glad to see that these are continuing!

@Aussie_Wombat… Good Show! Regards, Max


What is with these bird strikes. I am serious. Most engine failures result from a faulty engine problem internally or from a bird. Should this be the pilots responsibility to make sure it is safe to start their roll… of course a bird strike could and will happen anywhere. I still think this could’ve got prevented.

Edit: whoops, contradicted myself. Im still with my claim. The problem is a threat and it couldve been prevented like any other disaster.

Have you read what you just said?




Need I say more?


Wizzair A321s and Sofia really don’t get along lol! 😂
Also how’s your day/night Mods?

Are you able to organize the incident list so that they start with the date? I would find it easier to sift through :) <3

It is already by date, you will see “13 April” for example

See. I can make them bold if you like.

Ah! Much better, sorry I didn’t see that the first time. Thanks!

Birds are fast moving little things you can’t expect pilots to be able to always see them.

My birthday! Coincidence?
