|| Japan's ANA removing locator beacons from domestic Boeing 787s ||
Why only domestic? If it deemed a risk, then remove from all the fleet.
Logic would dictate this, I wonder when they will remove the beacons from their whole fleet. Should there be real problems, then surely they will do it.
If ELT are considered non essential, why do airlines have them?
How much do they weigh?
I would suggest, nothing one would find on a modern plane is not essential, when it wouldn't be needed, it wouldn't be there, it's the reassurance for flying safe.
Now it seems, after the LHR incident that the reassurance mantra dictates to get rid of them.
Of course I'd rather have a fire over the Pacific than over land. That way I can put the fire out with the ocean. Seems odd but surely they are moving to replace all the beacons asap.
Indeed, there's a difference between removing and replacing. I for one, find them essential still.
