I tell ya... For all the "experience" they claim to have... Honestly! How many airplanes have the wrecked in the last few years? 3 I can think of right off the bat. MDT, LGA (sully), and where was this one? TPA?

What is the count since 9/2005 merger? LGA, BDL and now TPA, am I missing something from the senior group?

Does either side of your pilot group ever get sick of this as much as the rest of the pilot world. It's not clever or witty. It makes me think the pilot profession gets everything we deserve. Look at how we ( and by we I mean you ) act. I don't care if your a senior east pilot or some mesa co-pilot hired a couple years ago.....this crap is old. Your airline has bigger issues right now and god forbid something happens to it....NO ONE will ever want to hire any of you.

Riiiiiiiiiight. Well, if the news media says it was a hard landing, I tend to believe them. I mean, hey- we all know that some of the finest and sharpest aviation consultants pull duty for the news agencies. That's why their information is so spot on accurate. If some aviation industry oracle at ABC news says it was a hard landing, then that's got to be it- and pilot error as well. Surely, that rules out something mechanical in the nose gear that may have sheared/collapsed/broke etc.................

Maybe the USAirways folks will get to share in a good dose of what is coming down the pipes from the Federal Government and the FAA, just like the regionals are going to get. Along with every other airline out there.........

Brilliant cost savings initiative- Let the news media provide the probable cause and save the NTSB the expense/trouble........

Maybe if these guys could fly as well as they whine I would consider flying on them.

For the west pilots' sake, I hope some karmic retribution isn't in the cards... Sheesh.

Even this piddly regional turboscooter driver knows that safety must be divorced from politics to the greatest extent possible. You guys, both sides, need to get a grip.

P.S: Be aware my remarks are confined to that minority of a$$hats who feel that the present seniority debacle is somehow germane to an aircraft mishap. Shame on you. Very unprofessional behavior.

Agreed! The cycle of insults must be stopped. It benefits neither side.

Sorry but the facts speak for themselves.

One time is a fluke, two times a coincidence, three times is a trend.

US Air East has the worst safety record of all major airlines. Period.

Tasteless to mention it? Facts are facts.

DEVELOPING: Television pitchman Billy Mays — who built his fame by appearing on commercials and infomercials promoting household products and gadgets — died Sunday, FOX News confirms.
Mays was found unresponsive by his wife inside his Tampa, Fla., home at 7:45 a.m. on Sunday, according to the Tampa Police Department.
Police said there were no signs of forced entry to May's residence and foul play is not suspected. Authorities said an autopsy should be complete by Monday afternoon.
Mays, 50, was on board a US Airways flight that blew out its front tires as it landed at a Tampa airport on Saturday, MyFOXTampa.com reported.
US Airways spokesman Jim Olson said that none of the 138 passengers and five crew members were injured in the incident, but several passengers reported having bumps and bruises, according to the station.
Authorities have not said whether Mays' death was related to the incident.
"Although Billy lived a public life, we don't anticipate making any public statements over the next couple of days. Our family asks that you respect our privacy during these difficult times," Mays wife, Deborah, said in a statement on Sunday.

Huh?
It's critical that this company gets a joint contract FAST. It is extremely important that UsAirways put at least one west pilot in the cockpit of every flight to keep these east guys from balling up every airframe in the fleet. Again, the company gets mud on their face because of an east pilots inexperience.

Just curious, how do you pull off that with a 737? I can see it happening on the 757 with manual ground spoiler deployment. Has the 737 got any quirks?

Normally I'd agree with you. But ever since the east decided to label me "rookie" or "inexperienced", because my airline was smaller and had not been around since dirt was invented, I decided to hold their feet to the fire. These events we speak of are karma. No doubt about it. And now I'll gladly and with great spirit jam their every bad move up their a$$! Don't like it? Don't read my posts. There is ignore as an option here...

Giggity!

...And when you act like this, even in an anonymous forum, you make the easties look right. Don't become the "rookie". Be above all that.

By all means hold their feet to the fire! But do it in a way that doesn't degrade the quality of your own professionalism. When you say things like this, you lower yourself to the level of those you propose to defeat. The high ground is a great place to fight from. Conducting a "scorched earth strategy" with your own professionalism is not a great way to go.

I don't think I will put you on ignore. This is cheap entertainment. It kinda reminds me of a girl fight in middle school...

It is very sad / embarrassing the way you tools carry on here.

Are you people really a bunch of 3rd graders posing as pilots?
