Continued from>>1428181Old thread hit image limit so post your airports thread #18 Starting with ARN
Airports will be a fertile ground for urban exploration in the near future. How many do you think will be closed permanently in the coming months? I can't wait.
>>1482734Less than 5.
>>1487682Let me help you with thatPRG
>>1487755>EasternI want to go back
>>1492030i dont know why, but i wish they had 747s.
>>1492114It would have been nice to see. I suppose the L-1011 gave them the coverage they needed in the past.
>>1492114lots of cargo ones at the moment
>>1484595What routes would have placed a 747 in Boise?
>>1496512Nonstop to Atlanta
>>1497296how did Delta fill that route ? LAX to ATL you could understand but Boise?
>>1488714were it so easy
>>1487701Will be missed :(
>>1501208I think they actually use an Airbus. The 747 was there for news briefing about the new added service.
>>1502976I knew there had to be some unusual circumstances. Now someone explain this. >BA Concorde at RDU, mid 1980s.
>>1482110>grew up flying continental out of EWR >still doing it with united Only small brains think EWR is a bad airport
>>1509735its not that bad... its quick to transit, only bad bit like any NY area airport is weather problems at times
So when the pilots take off on the runaway. Why do they put the plane on breaks and then increase the thrust, as opposed to just increasing the thrust?
>>1510912Simple... On short runways to reduce take off distance. Physics at play there ....
>>1511913This, and you generally want to throttle the engines up to 40% and letting them spool up to it before letting off the brakes to ensure that you get even thrust application when throttling up the rest of the way.
>>1511933oh i understand now, that is to test the engine before ramping up to take off thrust as if a failure is going to happen it is less dangerous at this point.
one of STL's closed bits. how many airports are out there that have closed off bits?
>>1482110NZWN reporting in
>>1497680based anon - NZWN is my base.Maybe I flew you one or twice :^)
>>1522094an interesting one!
>>1521807>how many airports are out there that have closed off bits?https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pittsburgh_International_Airport
DFW ft. the best md-80 livery
>>1523441shy All Nippon Airway
>>1523443Hope to see A380s for many years to come :(
>>1513364What? Thats not at all why thats done. Holding brakes while engines spool up to reduce takeoff distance is obvious enough, so I won't explain that. Letting engines come up to medium thrust is so you don't have a major difference (differential) in thrust between the engines. If one spooled up to max before the other it could yaw the plane off centerline with no way to recover before going off.
>>1526095Also I'm drunk so I could be wrong about that so please don't tear me apart a/n/ons
>>1526096You are correct, that's what I was saying >>1511933 but the other anon completely missed it.
>>1530279>>1530860FIt's such a comfy airport
>>1534358it has no airlines flying in there now ?
>>1482734I hope you are right, but I fear that like other potentially beautiful urbex sites, they'll still be under constant surveillance and locked up tight. There's a massive dead mall near Phoenix that I've tried to get into many times but have been thwarted each time. I just want to explore :(
>>1523439how about some more?
>>1539517oh yes please
SKG (Thessaloniki, Greece)Two reasonably rare planes in sight from my gate - first an A220 of Swiss
And second a Boeing 717 of Volotea, hiding away behind a gantry. Volotea is the only operator of the 717 in yurop
>>1540725here's a rare one. although i do wonder why AA never bought more MD-90s other than the ones they got from their buy out of reno air.
>>1535952>>1534358I used to enjoy watching the airlines fly in and out of there a few years back.I was sad to see them stop service.
>>1541642I miss Reno Air
>>1543072AA took many good airlines.
>>1543203you still see some old twa F&B carts on AA .. well you did pre covid :(
AMS a few years back
>>1543998there is still quite a lot of old TWA stuff floating around at STL.
>>1545903>yellow license platesI puke very time I see them.
>>1548180I really miss those old birds :(
HLN...often confused with HNL
GSP (Greenville-Spartanburg)Grew up right next to it, so it always has a special place in my heart.
>>1539517Miss DFW so much, just moved near HOU, which isnt much to talk about. Ill have to get some pics the next time I'm there.
>>1554706nice C class on those ...
MCOA simpler time. Galaxy's Edge had just opened at Disney, Virgin hadn't gone bankrupt, and people were still flying.
>>1551914Southwest is pretty much the only carrier that flies into HOU, it's absurd to compare to DFW. IAH and DFW are similar, and HOU and DAL are similar.
>>1558427times have changed :(
CLO from the tower with a couple lockdown victims
>>1570378who doesn't love an old dc9 and 727 ? :)
>>1571686are they even operation intercontinental flights at the moment?
SXM back in 2016
>>1575386yeah but not as frequently as before, plus they use 787s for those flights
>>1573624I like to drift back to simpler times every now and then.
>>1488813I love my airport
bump? ... yes
Here's a collector image.Blow River airstrip on the North Slope of the Yukon.No code for it as it's just a strip of gravel out in the middle of nowhere that you can barely land a Twin Otter on.
And a more conventional airstrip at Inuvik (YEV)
>>1587448They need special gravel kit for landing there don't they?
>>1587455They run slightly larger tires I believe and take a bit of air out, which you can kind of see in the second pic.
>>1587776I believe Canadian North still flies 737 in and out of YEV
>>1587881yeah, YEV is fully pavedthe tundra tires are for gravel runways
>>1589276not exactly a big hub !
>>1587884wonder what they will use after the 737-200 are retired?
