Aunt Pru asks Senate Estimates a ‘crucial’ yardstick or wet noodle.
It is irresponsible, untenable and risible to allow the ATSB to investigate the ATSB aberration that was Pel-Air. The link – HERE –

Tonight the Styx river will hear music, laughter, the clinking of beer bottle and peels of elephant glee. HERE.
Notice for The Old Man (P7 aka TOM). The Gobbledock made it: escaped from Montreal and the clutches of McComic (it’s quite a tale). He’s home on the houseboat; his beloved elephant lost all semblance of dignity, the reunion was heart warming. On the plus side, he can look after the bloody thing himself now; […]

Seems we have some gremlin helpers :- We shall try again. No doubt many are wondering what the Pel-Air ‘fuss’ is all about. PAIN has decided to release part of the briefing suite provided to the Senate. Our objections to the proposed re-investigation of Pel-Air. – HERE. PAIN -the outrageous Canley Vale report – HERE. […]
P7 – For example; MH 370 ranks up there with the Titanic as a disaster and a mystery. P7 I believe it is time the travelling public were made aware of just how little the regulator values their lives and

There are two forecast developments which were, soon or late, expected to become important; they are now getting a little oxygen. Here and Hear. For the true devotee of genuine conspiracy or truly juicy scandal, there are no short cuts – but the research will pay dividends. Start – HERE. The discussion is IMO […]
Ben Sandilands @ Plane Talking – the best of all tendentious bloggers asks one of the many big questions. It beggars belief that after the unholy mess McComic left behind in Australia; the only support group for his ICAO appointment is the Department of murky Machiavellian land deals, manipulation, influence peddling and obfuscation. More on […]
It’s been noted with interest that the much admired and respected Ms. Nancy Graham Director of the ICAO Air Navigation Safety has become a leading light in her advocacy for fairness to those left behind, awaiting news of MH 370. Like many reasonable folk, she expresses concern that the spirit and intent of both the […]
The Des Ross article – HERE – is worth the time taken to read. You do not have to believe it all; however, the questions posed are valid and they have not, as yet been answered. Some of the reader comments are aggressively framed, unnecessarily so IMO, the man has taken the time to examine, […]
As another one bites dust, the credibility of the Unspeakable Prune sinks lower as a reputable voice for industry and passengers alike. The quote below is from the Air_Asia incident thread; one of many similar offerings, an honest opinion, provided for discussion but rubbed out, lest it not fit the approved template. HarryMan… “what the […]
Another dot emerges from the Unspeakable Prune picture as a further 24 hours roll by and despite the wide publication of what is ‘good news’ for Angel Flight, nary a word has been published on the UP website. The silence reflects the type of comment being attracted and the topics favoured by those who sit […]
Who dunnit and Why : Chapter 3. It is widely believed that before Re-o-Cur Dolan, darling of the SMH lunch crowd and psychic researcher of the MH 370 tragedy, is allowed to slither off, clutching his golden parachute, fur lined jock strap and hand crafted golf ball warmers; there are some serious questions which must […]
Before we start back tracking through the murky, sinister back alleyways of insurance, connections and the self promotion of various individuals through their equally rapacious fellow travellers; there is, I believe a need to clear the remaining grime from the canvass; the top cover if you like. The surface of this canvas, much like cover […]
Following on from the #P9 piece: Who-dunnit and why. I too have contributed to Ben’s blog here & here: PAIN_P2 Posted February 11, 2015 at 8:30 am | Permalink Your comment is awaiting moderation. Upon reflection the ATSB report not only neglects to mention the near fuel exhaustion of VH-NGA but also the still outstanding report […]
Bravo – Finally, some sense from two Prune posters. At long last, after only 3181 posts, sweet logic, pragmatic professional thinking and cool sense prevail; finally. Halle-bloody-lujah… 😀 ..

Senator Fiona Nash, keeper and minder of ‘Pete’ the agnostic pot plant is one of the acknowledged favourites of the IOS was the last in a long list of people who have asked ‘the question’.

Both Taiwan’s Aviation Safety Council and Civil Aeronautical Administration (CAA), both deserve praise and are setting an example. Within a very short space of time, they have confirmed the ‘Tower – Flight’ transcript and provided as much reliable flight path and technical data as is possible, considering the circumstances. Well done Taiwan… The graphics provided […]
Tribute to Sally! Shane (aka Justiceseeker),Sad time of the year for you mate (approaching the ninth anniversary of the Lockhart River tragedy), will miss your 10pm phone rants and your posts/PMs as JS (and your other more illustrious alias..).

Ben Sandilands Posted February 7, 2015 at 1:53 pm | Permalink An experienced pilot who doesn’t wish to comment in his own name or using an alias has offered the following perspective, which I think makes some persuasive observations: When I did my multi engine rating, my instructor strongly emphasised that the actions after engine […]
Santa and the elves were all busy, so much to do. The flight planning and flight following elves were flat strap, not only were there new war zones to avoid, volcanoes, RVSM airspace, ADSB airspace and new narrow roof top landing limits to comply with; but the Indian ocean had developed it’s own version of […]

Quote: Sunny: Net result of CASA corruption and incompetence will be higher insurance premiums for Australian registered aircraft compared to other developed countries. Which supports the BRB hypothesis that M&M & co seek to decimate the GA industry in this country… On a slightly different tack I noticed some interesting obs by Dougy in his […]
Lock up your daughters, hide your gold. Beware world – the ex director and author of the great Australian aviation tragedy McComic is vying for a seat at ICAO. First Australia, then world domination by a man who created the infamous Cathay Pacific 49′ ers saga, engineered the great Pel-Air duck up, compromised the industry […]

It’s way too early for technical theory and chest beating hypotheses; but a little operational ‘savvy’ may provide the first clues. Finally, I found a soupcon of calm, professional analysis on Pprune. BG 47 – “If you look at the flight route that was posted above, it looks like the crew was attempting to follow the […]

The end game of the Pel-Air debacle is about to played out in the Australian courts today; they provide a demonstrated, documented and examined insight into what can happen in the aftermath of an accident investigation. The events which have occurred and continue to generate outrage in Australia provide some unpalatable food for thought for […]
Mighty Pissed Off: Take Two… An old post for some clarification. I believe that now is the time for all the trolls and moderators to dig deep, some very deep, into their humanity strand of DNA. Understandably some are more evolved than others, very clear from the eyes that’s that have seen the absolute evidence […]
