  • Airplane that did not arrive at your destination because you had to land at an alternate airport? Or,
  • Made reservations and had a seat assignment only to find upon arriving for departure you no longer had that reservation and seat assignment? Or,

“Halloween In The Bermuda Triangle”


The EAL Radio Show has a fantastic Halloween planned “Halloween In The Bermuda Triangle” scheduled for Episode 339, Monday, October 30, 2017 at 7:00 P.M. ET.

Many of us have heard the stories surrounding “The Bermuda Triangle,” also known as the “Devil's Triangle.” This location is in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean, and one of the heaviest traveled shipping lanes in the World. Some say ships disappeared and aircraft has never been seen again due to mysterious circumstances, while others dismiss the idea of any mystery or disappearance happening from this area. Cruise ships and pleasure craft regularly sail through the region, as well as commercial/private flights flying through this area. So tune in to hear if our flight has any paranormal or activity by extraterrestrial beings happening!

We look forward to your joining us on this evening. Please call in at 213-816-1611 at 7:00 P. M. ET as we depart the gate, or listen in by clicking the hyperlink to take you to: www.blogtalkradio.com/capteddie.

Episode 340

"Honoring Our Veterans” and

“Upcoming Book Releases

by Eastern Authors"


The EAL Radio Show Episode 340, scheduled Monday, November 6, 2017 at 7:00 P.M. ET, will spend the first part of the show honoring and celebrating "Veterans Day, November 11, 2017".  World War I ended November 11, 1918 and was the proud moment for every American because our ancestors fought in that war so bravely and did make the peace all over the World by winning that war. Since June 1, 1954 the name Armistice Day was then changed to Veterans Day for us to recognize and honor the service men and women in our country, as well as those all over the world. We encourage all of our Eastern Airlines veterans who served in the military to call into our show so we can celebrate and honor you.


Part II will continue with our knowledgeable and gifted EAL Radio Show Host and Authors who will give us a brief reading of their upcoming new books soon to be released. Join us to be the first to hear the exclusive titles of their upcoming book releases.


We look forward to your joining us on this evening. Please call in at 213-816-1611 at 7:00 P. M. ET as we depart the gate, or listen in by clicking the hyperlink to take you to: www.blogtalkradio.com/capteddie.

AA 777 Damaged In Hong Kong Fire

An American Airlines Boeing 777 was damaged Monday evening at Hong Kong Airport when either luggage or cargo being loaded on the aircraft caught fire. The fire occurred just as a container was being put in the aft cargo hold. This photo shows a ramp worker falling from the hold and being helped away by coworkers. No passengers or flight crew were on the aircraft, which was to have left for Los Angeles in the early evening. See more of the article in Newsletter Online Aug-Dec17.

Airbus Says VTOL Project On Track

By Mary Grady

Airbus will be ready to fly its full-scale electric VTOL technology demonstrator by the end of next year, the company said last week. The project, which is being built by the company’s helicopter division, is designed to carry up to four passengers from crowded city centers to nearby destinations such as airports or train stations. The team recently completed testing of the propulsion system, including the ducted propellers, electric 100-kilowatt Siemens motors and all electrical systems. “We now have a better understanding of the performance of CityAirbus’ innovative electric propulsion system, which we will continue to mature through rigorous testing while beginning the assembly of the full-scale CityAirbus flight demonstrator,” said Marius Bebesel, CityAirbus chief engineer.

           Controllers Ignore Mayday Calls

                                                       By Russ Niles

Canadian officials say they’ll talk to their counterparts in India after air traffic controllers reportedly ignored a series of Mayday calls from an Air Canada Boeing 787 and ordered the crew to enter holds instead. The Dreamliner had finished a 16-hour flight from Toronto to Mumbai on Sept. 18 but a runway overrun by a SpiceJet Boeing 737 closed the active runway. Rather than going to its alternate, the aircraft was put in a series of holds by Mumbai controllers. After an hour of turning left, the Air Canada plane was getting low on fuel so the crew asked for clearance to its alternate. They were told the unidentified alternate airport was unavailable because it was at capacity and unable to take any more traffic. See more in Newsletter Online Aug-Dec17.
