The Editor doesn’t moderate this blog,  3 volunteers do, they are very lenient to provide you a free speech space but if it’s just deranged abuse or putting words in bloggers mouths to have a pointless argument, we don’t bother publishing.

EDITORS NOTE: – By the way, here’s a list of shit that will get your comment dumped. Sexist language, homophobic language, racist language, anti-muslim hate, transphobic language, Chemtrails, 9/11 truthers, Qanon lunacy, climate deniers, anti-fluoride fanatics, anti-vaxxer lunatics, 5G conspiracy theories, the virus is a bioweapon, some weird bullshit about the UN taking over the world  and ANYONE that links to fucking infowar.

  1. Instead of building bigger longer runways for planes get an electronic guide into Wellington so there is one airport in the country that can keep faith with air passengers and the tourists we rely on to be able to enter and leave when they need to.

    How does a plane land in zero visibility?

    Is it safe to land a plane in fog?

    If the visibility is less than 550 m and/or the pilots can’t see the runway at a height of 200ft above the airport, it is still possible to land, but the landing would need to be conducted through what is called an ‘autoland’.

    Sometimes airports are forced to temporarily shut down until the skies clear, with the delays causing chaos for commuters and flow-on effects for other airports.
    But now in Melbourne and Perth, air traffic controllers have an extra string to their bow.
    It’s called CatIIIB certification.
    The high-tech system allows pilots to land even when visibility drops to just 75 metres — a distance less than half that of the MCG.

    Can AirNZ manage now that Luxon has gone?

    Air New Zealand is assessing the impact on pilot training after a fire at its flight simulation centre at Auckland Airport.
    David Morgan, Air New Zealand chief operational integrity and safety officer, described it as a small fire broke out in the northern end of the centre.

    It seems that AirNZ has to up its game. And it isn’t cheap for NZrs yet. My hairdresser says it is cheaper to see family in Oz than travel in NZ.
