 "The Dirty Dozen of Maintenance"

The EAL Radio Show presents Episode 407, March 25, 2019 at 7:00 P.M. EDT with a topic named "The Dirty Dozen of Maintenance." This topic highlights the importance of maintenance which is a two-fold issue… mechanical and emotional.

Recent incidents and accidents have occurred in the aviation industry and out of these tragic accidents, 12 human factors were identified. These factors keep people’s ability to perform effectively and safely which could lead to maintenance errors. We are human and as such make mistakes, sometimes not because we don't know any better, but perhaps because our thinking caps aren't on all the time.


Although some errors could be due to inexperience that's something that must be avoided in the airline business both on the mechanical side as well as the emotional side. Aviation is terribly unforgiving of human error, as we cannot afford to allow mistakes to “escape” and erode the safety of our system and our passengers.


Neal will cover "The Dirty Dozen of Maintenance" that airline personnel need to keep in mind. Understanding, learning, and retaining methods that may prevent errors and events from having tragic consequences…similar to the check list that pilots use every flight or the check and balance list mechanics follow like clockwork.

 "Holy Blue Sunoco"


The EAL Radio Show presents Episode 408, April 1, 2019 at 7:00 P.M. EDT with "Holy Blue Sunoco". This old saying was brought to our attention by our Host, Jim Hart who made the comment one evening on our program recently.


Captain Neal will bring to this saying along with many others that originated in the past. Sunoco had an original Blue Sunoco sign and perhaps it came from that, or Sunoco LP limited partnership organized in Delaware until its sale in June 2009 to Holly Corporation of Dallas. ... so you might say "Holy Blue Sunoco" was taken from the Corporation name. Some sayings began by witty writers, and many of them are still with us. Here are a few more:

  1. Anyone indecisive is said to pass the buck and originated in card playing in which the dealer has a lot of responsibility on determining the game's format. If a player doesn't want to take it on, he's allowed to "pass the buck" to the next player to be the dealer.
  2. In old days, a rifle had 3 major parts: a lock, a stock of wood and a metal barrel...all had to work together and be in sync!  Thus, when a person chose to put everything 100% into an decision, and not just half-heartedly, he is said to be doing it "lock, stock and barrel."
  3. Benjamin Franklin was approached by a stranger who admired the family grindstone and Ben used an ax to demonstrate. Once his ax was sharp the stranger walked off laughing.  Today "having an ax to grind" means that someone has a selfish or mean motive behind their actions.

 "The Big Three, MIA, ATL & NYC

 (JFK, LGA & EWR)"


The EAL Radio Show presents Episode 409, April 8, 2019 at 7:00 P.M. EDT with "The Big Three, MIA, ATL & JFK" and Neal will outline our The Big Three. America is home to many Int'l airports from JFK in NYC to Hartsfield-Jackson in ATL to MIA in Miami, FL. These airports serve as main hubs for big carriers. The bigger airports tend to have the most direct Int'l. and domestic flight routes, which make it faster and more convenient to travel. Plus, they're usually more affordable compared to flying through small regional airports—meaning worth braving the crowds. Let's take a quick look.

Miami International Airport, Miami, Florida (MIA) is the former home airport of our beloved Eastern; also Eastern Airlines Group, now Eastern Airlines LLC. It too, is the main U.S. gateway to Latin America and the Caribbean. MIA has the largest number of global passengers after JFK Int'l. and the main hub for American who took over the many routes to this major Florida city, since Eastern closed. Next is:

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Atlanta, GA (ATL) which is the busiest airport in the world, more than 100 million passengers a year. A two-hour flight from many large American cities, making it an easy, central layover for connecting flights. The Main hub for Delta Airlines. Then onto:

John F. Kennedy Int'l Airport, NYC (JFK) formerly Idlewild is the main airport for NYC. Sees arrivals and departures from almost every Int'l airline in the world. JFK handles most Int'l flights while LaGuardia Int"l (LGA) also in Queens, is more popular for domestic flights. Newark Int'l. Airport (EWR) NJ handles both domestic and international flights. It's a bit further from the city than the other two airports, but less crowded and has more modern facilities.
