“Life in the air was turbulent, confined and freezing cold. Often, airmen who had just returned from a reconnaissance mission were so numbed and dazed from prolonged exposure, that they literally had to thaw out before they could report their observations in a coherent and intelligible manner.” Was stated by Del Kostka. Even for the most basic acts of war, airplanes continued to kill or injure their own soldiers even though it continued to give some information. The results of these events were tragic but the Allies and the Germans continued to believe that it would help win the war. The effectiveness of planes was dramatic and resulted in predicting the enemy’s tactics but there was always a negative.
Hitler made a series of mistakes before attempting to invade Britain. Firstly at Dunkerque, Hitler made a mistake in not allowing his tanks to take Dunkerque quickly enough which allowed Britain to take many Allied troops from the beaches. The British government turned this into a great propaganda victory as they saved 350,000 troops. This was called the spirit of Dunkerque and the government used the fall of France to increase British morale before the Battle of Britain. After France was taken, there was a long delay which allowed Britain to produce more planes for the Battle of Britain and at one point they made over 100 planes a week.
The Navataire Call system could only accommodate 650 agents, which was more than met requirements during normal circumstances (Rainer, 2010). The next issue arose when passengers struggled to get through reservations, because JetBlue had no computerized system in place for recording or tracking lost baggage another nightmare began. I believe that all of the issues JetBlue face during the 2007 storm could have been prevented if the technology had been in place before hand. It was a hug lesson learned for JetBlue, and they were quick to adjust and expand systems and put in place ones needed that were missing. If I were apart of the JetBlue team I would have build systems that were prepared for disasters like this.
Running Head: PILOT FATIGUE: A PROBLEM NOT EASILY CONQUERED Pilot Fatigue: A Problem Not Easily Conquered Marshall E Wright Liberty University - AVIA 300 Abstract Pilot fatigue is a major headline issue in the United States. There has been much research and study on fatigue as it relates to the human body. Unfortunately, little has been done in terms of regulations to fix the problem. Pilot Fatigue: A Problem Not Easily Conquered In the last fifty years, every area of aviation has been examined through the safety microscope. The industry successfully made changes that has made airplanes much safer.
Any time the enemy saw the L-4 Cub airplane, they knew a barrage of artillery was sure to follow. From a German Prisoner of War: “When the Cub flies over, all things cease. All we move is our eyeballs” (Varangis 2017). This weakened the morale for many German soldiers and gave allied soldiers hope. Although the decisive point of the operation wasn’t artillery related, it was related to key terrain.
An Arrow Through The Heart Canada was in the market for a state or the art interceptor to combat the threat of Soviet bombers after World War II. The response was the Avro Arrow, which was developed from 1949 until its controversial cancellation in 1959. This cancellation was detrimental to Canada’s aeronautical industry as it led to the loss of a Canadian aircraft that was leaps and bounds ahead of its time. Furthermore, the Avro Arrow program was more cost effective that the Bomarc system at the time of cancellation. Lastly, the program’s closure cost 25, 000 people their jobs.
The delay in the delivery of Boeing 787 to major airliners around the world is a classic example of this situation. The board of directors of Boeing were determined with their revolutionary plans for the airplane manufacturing company. Although there were several obstacles and design challenges that needed to be addressed, facing pressure from the senior most officials, the system and manufacturing engineers laid down overly optimistic plans for convincing client companies like Emirates that Boeing was well equipped for accepting the manufacturing orders of Boeing 787 within an agreed time period. The rest, as they say is history when the client companies were almost on the verge of cancellation of their orders due to Boeing’s repeated failures of complying with the deadline requirements. 3.
It was the airline's fourth fare increases this year, and the ninth in the past two years. This shows problems in the company because they are well known about their lowest fare and as a result it will create bad impact to their valuable consumers. View point: The Company’s hiring process was somewhat unique; Peers screened candidates and conducted interviews; pilots hired pilots, and gate agents hired gate agents. In our view point hiring process must be handled by resource management. And Southwest pilot must be belong or handled by the National Union.
Although the Titanic is known for carrying the rich and famous, the Ship actually had several purposes to carry British and US mail and to carry general cargo and frozen meat since at that time Europe could not produce enough livestock. It shows us that at this time people wanted to try and develop new things and systems to try to enhance and create better livelihood. People really thought that Titanic was going to be the unsinkable ship due to the fact that it was advertised everywhere that the Titanic was the place to be. It was also a massive development in technology and people weren’t really used to things like this. On the 2nd April 1912 the Titanic set off on its great voyage to America it was on the water for 4 days before hitting an iceberg and sinking 2hours and 40 minutes later.
Americans, for example, needed ration cards to purchase items such as gasoline, coffee, sugar, and meat. Rationing eventually frustrated many Americans. For the first time in years, they had money to spend, but there were few goods available for purchase. The home front transformed the lives of many children during WWII. Millions lived apart from fathers who served in the military.
