Only the ETOPs Buses at Virgin America have HF radios. So 14 out of 71 (soon to be 16 out of 73).The absence of sealant on those panels makes me cringe, but I'm okay with not touching up the paint on the screw heads. Does that airplane not have an HF radio? If so where is the antenna? The airline world is foreign to me, which is kind of funny because I got a notification from a headhunter that SJI might need a tech or two at LAX. I intend on exploring that option, but not tonight. Happy New Years everybody! I hope your 2019 is better than your 2018! All we can do is strive to improve.
The fact that it's "catching fire regularly" and still in service would seem to be a greater problem than the icing it's supposed to deal with...There’s a particular de-ice truck at another airport that catches fire regularly. I guess their plan is de-ice by heat rather than chemically.
