They won't help anyone if they shear the wings off!  Is the sound barrier higher at 35,000 feet?

Seems that sound travels slower at high altitude. Don't know what that means for stress on the air frame.

Jet streams, the plane can't go over 614 mph.

What do you mean? The air is carrying the sound and the plane at the same "initial" speed so it cancels off (to put it in simple terms).

Can someone explain why LY8 from JFK hasn't been cancelled? Do they expect to have the flight from Goose Bay back in JFK in time for the flight tonight?
In the meantime, LY 1 from TLV tonight (12:45am) has been delayed to 7:15am as it awaits for this aircraft to arrive.

I guess 1008 has a mechanic to sort out the issue

Why should a diversion be any different than a regular mechanical failure? As long as they arrive at their destination 8 hrs after the scheduled arrival time.

Leave it up to LY to say they left on time so no comp.  :D
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.
