It is time

When it reaches the point where ex-cargo airline pilots are posting your blog entries in full on aviation forums as their own work, without any credit, source link, back-link or even having the courtesy to ask permission, you know you have reached the absolute epitome of piss-taking.  There is only so much a person can take before being pushed beyond breaking point.

It was bad enough seeing Chris Edwards and Manolis Katsafarkis (Boeing Test Flights Per Day) copying all my work every day and reposting it as their own (deliberate errors included!) without a single credit to me, but now I discover that it's all being copied and reposted into private Facebook groups pretty much word for word as well.

This is in addition to all the for-profit companies stealing my work and reselling it (with deliberate errors included!) for commercial gain, namely Alexandre Avrane (yes, I see you running your bot scraper on my blog every night), Thomas Jaeger, FreeBird, ADU, FlightRadar24, to name a few of the obvious ones.  Perhaps you'd all like to forward me your original applications for re-use as I seem to have missed them or do you believe that Copyright law does not apply to you?


1. Never bite the hands that feeds you.

2. You reap what you sow.


It is time for this blog to close.

Nope.

@BTFPD I didn't come down in the last shower.  You can contact me for pricing.  $5,000 for 4.5 months of data is a fair price imo.

Oman Air 737 Max cancellation ?

Oman Air's #omanair next 737 Max frame due, A4O-ML (LN 7707), has seemingly been painted in full Boeing company 'light' livery from my observations.  However, it is still sporting Oman Air winglets.  I currently have no answers for why this frame is painted in the Boeing company livery when the 737-8 test program has long since been completed.  It is not the former test frame #3 LN 5728 N8703J which was in the same livery and also at BFI, as this has been in full Southwest Airlines livery since the summer.

169550 P-8A US Navy

I'm aware that a photo has recently been uploaded of a US Navy P-8A at the MFC at BFI wearing serial number 169550.  I will check the data in the next few days but I have a strong suspicion it is 169573 re-serialled as 169550 would be the next sequential number for LN 7462 following on from169549 on LN 7359.  Boeing docs did show 169573 for LN 7462 and there is also photo proof of it wearing that at RNT back in early May.

Edit Oct12 : this frame was indeed renumbered to 169550 at BFI and delivered as such.  Earlier blog posts amended.
