It’s a #GrabASnickers kind of evening here on the east coast.
@avshaq @NYCAviation Revocation means they will have to take all the writtens and flight tests over again after waiting a year, starting with student pilot.

Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. Both pilots involved in the “plane swap” stunt will have their certificates revoked for a year, and Aikins has also been hit with a nearly $5000 fine. This would likely have been ordered regardless of the stunt’s outcome. #avgeek twitter.com/CNN/status/152…
We’re absolutely gutted to learn of @NZAircraftFan’s passing this morning. There are few that were bigger cheerleaders for the #avgeek community and aviation in general than he was. #RIP twitter.com/jetcitystar/st…
It’s worth noting that aircraft with winglets or similar devices are certified to fly without them as well. There shouldn’t be a noticeable difference in how the plane feels with one or both missing. twitter.com/Brandon0wen/st…

We’re seeing reports that N233NN, an Envoy Airlines Embraer E175 operating for @AmericanAir may have lost all or part of a winglet in moderate to severe turbulence earlier this evening. The flight from @iflyCHS to @DFW_Airport safely diverted to @BHMAirport. #avgeek
Stopped out at @mspairport today to see the arrival of Air Force One and @POTUS for former Vice President Walter Mondale's memorial.

And now for something completely different, here’s the new @Condor_America livery. It’s certainly distinctive! #avgeek twitter.com/Condor/status/…

This is by far the largest piece of debris from #MU5735 that I have seen. Other videos and pictures only shown small hand-held size debris. I fear that is a sign of how hard the impact was. twitter.com/FATIIIAviation…
Retweeted by NYCAviation
The granular ADS-B data from @flightradar24 shows that #MU5735 may have actually regained control after an initial nosedive before going nose down once more and impacting the ground twitter.com/flightradar24/…

The safety record of Chinese airlines are among one of the best in the world. CAAC had just announced that Chinese airlines surpassed 100 million flight hours without fatal accidents. #MU5735 is the first plane crash since 2010.

.China Eastern has grounded all of its 737-800s. Some flights are disrupted. Kunming will face major operation disruption as MU Yunnan operates an all-Boeing fleet. China Eastern also open up an special hotline for families of those on board #MU5735. The number is +864008495530.

There’s video circulating of #MU5735’s final moments. At this point, we have no way of knowing for sure whether it is authentic. We will not be sharing it here.
@CEAirglobal CAAC has issued an statement regarding the crash. It confirms the flight MU5735 has crashed and there are total 132 souls on board. 9 crew and 123 members. CAAC has initiated its protocols and special units are going to the crash site.

The last visible @flightradar24 data point on the app has the 737-800 (not a MAX) in an extreme -30,976 fpm descent at just over 3,000 feet. If accurate that clearly wouldn’t be survivable. At this point we need to wait for better data or some sort of official confirmation.

We are following multiple unconfirmed reports about a possible accident involving China Eastern Airlines flight #MU5735 a Boeing 737-89P (B-1791) en route from Kunming to Guanghzou, China.

I built a whole route RZE-AMS for this, tailoring it to Eurocontrol requirements. Clearly Eurocontrol gets the picture and wants to help the cause. #ClearedDirect

The FAA estimates at least $22 million in additional costs to get the engines inspected, more than $400k per aircraft. And that's excluding additional work if faults are detected. 💸💸#AvGeekeXsF

If you build it, they will come. Eventually. Many years after it’s passenger terminal was completed, @BreezeAirways is set to become the first airline with scheduled service at @SBDAirport. Flights to @flySFO begin August 4th aboard the airline’s E195 aircraft. #AvGeek
Good piece from @jonostrower looking at the challenges of repossessing aircraft from Russian carriers, focusing on one SMBC Aviation-owned Aeroflot A321. “There is the legal side of repossessions … but the reality is that is purely academic now.” theaircurrent.com/aircraft-leasi…

Don't count the #An225 out just yet—I've superposed this drawing onto what seems to be the jet's exposed tailplane, seen in this image posted earlier by @CSBiggers. Although there's substantial damage to the hangar, most of the airframe is under the undamaged section.
