Un avión de Air France voló varios días sin 30 tornillos del alerón trasero

París, 25 nov (EFE).- Un avión Airbus A340 de la compañía francesa Air France voló durante días sin unos 30 tornillos de los paneles del alerón trasero, hasta que un mecánico descubrió su falta, según confirmó hoy a Efe la aerolínea.
El avión, que acababa de ser revisado en China, fue inmovilizado de inmediato en Boston (EEUU), aunque unas horas después retomó el vuelo tras solucionar el percance, según precisó una portavoz.
Air France aseguró que "en ningún momento peligró la seguridad" de los pasajeros, y atribuyó la responsabilidad del olvido a la empresa china Taeco, encargada de llevar a cabo la "gran visita", término con el que se conoce la revisión exhaustiva de los aviones cada 5 ó 6 años en función de sus horas de vuelo.
La compañía subrayó que por lo general revisa directamente en Francia sus 245 aparatos, pero que en este caso hizo una excepción por sobrecarga de trabajo y confió esa función a la subcontrata ubicada en la localidad china de Xiamen.
También indicó que se trata de la primera vez en cuatro años que ese proveedor chino comete un error de ese orden.
Los tornillos que faltaban correspondían a un tercio de los necesarios para fijar uno de los paneles aunque, según expertos del sector, no constituye un riesgo "importante".
Taeco es una de las empresas líderes del mundo en el mantenimiento de aeronaves y está participada a parte iguales por por Cathay Pacific Airways, Japan Airlines y Boeing, entre otros grupos de aviación. EFE

377 Stratocruiser Boeing Pilot´s Handbook

Posted by ahs191c@gmail.com noviembre 22, 2011, under | No comments

 
The A2A Wings of Silver Stratocruiser is unlike any aircraft you have flown in Microsoft Flight Simulator. From the very beginning we here on the A2A team knew that this aircraft was something special, not just in look and design, but in the way the team came together over what initially we believed was quite an odd yet large aircraft.
Many in the team initially had never heard of the Stratocruiser, and many of us also agreed at how odd the “double bubble” shape looked. As time went on, we began to realize the special place the Stratocruiser holds in history, and just how influential it is to today's modern airliners. Many features first realized in the Stratocruiser have become the standard for nearly all commercial aircraft built to date.
In a way, the Stratocruiser is a representation of A2A's dedication at creating the most realistic simulation possible of such an amazing and important aircraft. A2A has crafted and pioneered many new technologies for this aircraft which is the first release and flagship in the Wings of Silver flight simulation line of software simulations for Microsoft Flight Simulator X. Never before has the team worked so diligently to produce what we feel is the most accurate simulator of a
true “classic” airliner.
Please take a look at some of the new features listed below and take the time to experience every one of them in the simulator. We feel confident that you, like us, will agree that the A2A Wings of Silver Stratocruiser is indeed an amazing aircraft.
