In relation to MH066 which made an emergency landing on 24 March, were you aware that aircraft landed with only the APU working and all other generators unservicable.

Does the Malaysia Airlines MEL permit take off with only two generators?

How many more disasters does this airline need before it is banned from EU airspace?
Just for grins and giggles, how about you expound on your experience? Clearly you are an expert in these matters?

- On March 24th 2014, South Korean bound Malaysian Airline Flight MH066, An Airbus A330-300, was diverted to Hongkong due to malfunctioning of an onboard power generator.
That sounds like a normal week in a large airline operation...seriously. Absolutely nothing that you listed is out of the ordinary for a normal large operation.

I think if anything, this is saying something okay. They aren't letting the airplanes fly if they detect an issue.

Hmm, I haven't heard CNN connect this crash to Global Warming yet, their crisis agenda people must be asleep at the wheel.

I detect a note of sarcasm however it is self evident somebody between INMARSAT and MSA reinterpreted the data incorrectly.

Laws of Physics did not change between take off and last radar contact.

The chart released by Malaysian authorities showed frequency offset increasing whilst MH370 was flying away from the satellite under radar surveillance and was known to be flying east.

The same eastward trend appeared to continue for at least 30 minutes past IGARI, ie 30 minutes away from and 30 minutes flying back.

Let me make this very clear to you... I work for the most reliable airline in the world right now, and virtually every week has stuff like that. What they posted happens at every airline everywhere. I'm assuming you're not a pilot and/or don't work in air carrier flight operations?

I think he admitted a post or so back that he was a private pilot - - who is wasting away his talents in a cockpit and should be investing himself into aircraft mishap investigation!
