Incident on air asia, dodgy engine and some prayers (the prayer worked)

I'm not particularly defending Air Asia,  I've had a few good flights with them, but the media has a real hatred of them for some reason.
That aircraft is rated ETOPS, all their International aircraft are - it means they can fly perfectly ok on one engine, it was simply prudent to turn back, good decision.
As for the fool who asked why they did not divert to Learmonth 25 minutes away, it's a bare bones forward deploy base with no emergency facilities and nowhere to put passengers - dickhead in other words...
The pilot did the right thing, may have over-done it a bit on the pray and I'm scared bit but everyone is different.
The one thing that I have heard about them is that their training can be a bit sketchy, not unusual with the  budget carriers but I'd say he did a fine job.

They link to the Edge 1000 I'm running, so I can adjust beam, brightness, dip and flash from the unit. It also uses the light sensor on the Edge 1000 to adjust the light level as well.


The front light is a bit on the weighty side (225g) but I'm running a steel single speed CX for the daily ride anyway - weight's not really a factor any more :D

One of these kits for the daily ride (I leave the house at 0545).

Hey, it's a great flick!




And as one critic has said, sadly the first mis-step DC has made in their history of producing shit superhero films.
