San Diego Airport KSAN Approach Parking Structure

The "Famous" KSAN parking garage.



It's just a common-sense non-precision approach : "LOC RWY 27," so just RNAV.

Obstacle is off-centerline, with displaced threshold.

But things happen fast on the step-down : VYDDA-OKAIN-CIJHI-REEBO.

SCAN SCAN SCAN : Attitude Airspeed Altitude Heading Localizer Needle VSI

Please be courteous and don't leave tire skidmarks on top of the parking structure. There have been a couple times that they made guys pay to have it repainted.

Go! Airlines to Cease Operations in Hawaii


What Go!'s around comes around.

02/06 Aloha declares bankruptcy and Yucaipa LLC pumps in cash and becomes majority owner.



03/06 Mesa airlines begins flying in Hawaii under the name, "Go!"



10/06 Aloha files lawsuit against Mesa for using some of Aloha's confidential information as part of the "Go!" business plan.



03/08 Mesa brings over 2 additional planes supposedly to replace 2 that are already here.



03/08 Aloha declares bankruptcy again.



03/08 Mesa is "days away" from pulling out of Hawaii.



03/31/08 Aloha ceases all flight operations and closes down.



03/08 Mesa instantly becomes a big player in Hawaii, and they have 2 additional planes already here.



12/08 Aloha and Mesa settle the lawsuit filed in 06. Terms give Yucaipa $2 Million, and 2.7 million shares of Mesa stock representing 10% of Mesa. Mesa stock went up 54%.

3/17/4 Mesa has announced that it’s last flight will be on 3/31/14; exactly 6 years to the day that Aloha shut down.

Airplane Life Comments on MH 370

As we now know that someone stole the plane, we would like to make these observations and suggestions:

1) The concern is not where they took the plane, but where it is NOW.

2) Anyone with the capability to steal a 777 also has the capability to refuel it and take it somewhere else.

3) The plane is likely no longer in the region being searched.

4) Anyone with the capability to steal a 777 also has the capability to change it's livery.

5) While everyone is looking for a Malaysian 777 under a tarp at a remote airfield in Africa, the plane could be in a different livery sitting out in the open at an airport in South America.

6) All 777's worldwide should be grounded and their identity verified.
