I was waiting to depart CVG on 27 when Comair came in with an emergency on 36R at about 1310 local. Looked like they deployed the TRs on landing and the trucks followed him all the way down the runway. Anyone know what it was all about???

Delta Flight Has To Turn Back To CVG

Cabin Did Not Pressurize Fully, Airline Says

UPDATED: 7:49 pm EDT July 1, 2005


CINCINNATI -- A Delta Air Lines plane had to come back after takeoff from Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport Friday afternoon, News 5's Juliette Vara reported.

Flight 1661 to Portland returned because the cabin did not reach pressurization, Delta said.

Ambulances were standing by. Three people were examined at the airport, but no one was taken to a hospital, Vara reported.

Passengers were cold, but there were no injuries.

All passengers were rebooked on a new aircraft scheduled to take off at about 8:30 p.m.

The plane will have to be recertified by the Federal Aviation Administration before it can fly again.

FYI: You may want to know things like that before showing up to an interview!

Of course, because if you forget to deploy them in a Seneca you may run out of runway.

I'm sure she knows what a Thrust reverser is, but not everyone is framiliar with "TR".

Could also be Transformer Rectifier, if he was asked what a TR was out of context, more than one meaning for all these vowless words.

I don't know but if it doesn't you have to turn around and deploy the TR's on landing.

On the way home from the airport yesterday, I saw a guy on the side of the road removing a tire from his vehicle and putting another one on in its place. It was on I-75/85 N in Atlanta. Anyone know what happened???

The news said he busted his knuckles to the fare-thee-well, but finished up and continued to his destination without incident. But you know how those media types are. :D

In the Lear 35, cruising at FL410, you set the pressurization for FL440 (always 1,000 feet above assigned altitude). The cabin should pressurize to about 5800-6000 feet. If the cabin pressure only shows 3000 feet, it hasn't "reached" the desired pressure. If this happens and you return for landing, someone will eventually start a thread on this board about it. lol Hope that kind of answers your question. Depending on you altitude, this could be dangerous. Nothing would happen down low (below 10K), but at high altitudes this problem could be fatal.

Anyone have a link to "Mental Math for Pilots"?

And Doc? Um, I'm pretty sure that if the cabin pressure shows 3000 feet at FL410, it's already 'reached' the desired pressure and then some. The windows'll start popping out pretty soon.
