The October 4 issue of Aviation Week notes, page 23, that the previous week the FAA banned the type of system in use on SR111 in US-registered MD-11s. The system is an In-Flight Entertainment Network System, built by Interactive Flight Technologies of Phoenix. The article notes that all installed systems (15) have been deactivated. -- Robert Dorsett Moderator, sci.aeronautics.simulation firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com "Bother," said Pooh when his engine quit on take-off.
