The recent Pilots Survey provided some feedback and suggestions worthy of further discussion.
There was strong support for some form of live-chat to again be available.on the website. Webs (site hosts) do not provide this option. Admin staff are looking for pilots with related experience or interest to form a small working party focused on building our social footprint. Webs do provide tools for a Twitter feed, Blog and Facebook. Discord is another free option for both live chat and texts. Essentially the group will be working from a blank page. All ideas are welcome and valid until proven to be unattainable due to for example website limitations, costs or other factors.
Nominations including a brief (very brief!) outline of relevant experience, or simply noting outcomes focused interest, can be made in two ways. You can respond to the a Forum topic called Live Chat, or email Admin privately using firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is hard to attract new members when communications within the airline are limited. Webs continues to support the Forum updates option we rely heavily on. This has not always been the case. Having an alternate communications medium is therefore important.
Lastly, RED is a small group of like-minded people interested in aviation at some level. Working groups are created on the understanding that participants have external commitments.
As BigDog used to say,
Together Everyone Achieves More!
And then there were eight.
The Qantas Boeing 747-400/400ER fleet is down to eight aircraft after the retirement of VH-OJS.
The aircraft, named Hamilton Island, operated its last revenue service in Qantas colours on Sunday February 17, when it took off from Sydney bound for San Francisco as the QF73.
The following day, VH-OJS was ferried to the Mojave desert as QF6021, the flight tracking website FlightAware showed.
