                   MODERATOR VACANCY INVESTIGATION (MVI)
                 moderated group sci.aeronautics.airliners

This is a formal Moderator Vacancy Investigation (MVI), begun because 
moderated newsgroup sci.aeronautics.airliners is not functioning, and 
may have been abandoned by its moderator(s).

This investigation will attempt to verify the reasons for non-function, 
and may result in the removal of the group or the selection and 
installation of a new moderator.  In practice, the Big-8 Management 
Board considers the third alternative -- changing the status of the 
group from moderated to unmoderated -- as likely to cause more harm than 
good.

NEWSGROUPS LINE:
sci.aeronautics.airliners Airliner technology. (Moderated)

RATIONALE:

Probe posts to this group resulted in bounces.

DISTRIBUTION:
news.announce.newgroups
news.groups.proposals
sci.aeronautics.airliners

CHARTER

   A moderated discussion group dealing with the implementation of 
flight and systems models on computers.  This includes, but is not 
restricted to:
      - the definition of such models
      - acquisition and modeling of flight parameters
      - design and implementation of onboard systems models
      - design and implementation of powerplant models
      - standardization of commonly required data, such as flight
        parameter databases, navaid databases, etc.
      - design of cab-based implementations of flight simulators

HISTORY OF THE GROUP:

The results posting for the group is missing from the archives.  It was 
presumably created after the last CFV which is dated 14 June 1994.  It 
was active until March 2000.

An MVI was held in November 2004.  On 11 January 2005 these results were 
published:  “sci.aeronautics.airliners will have a new moderation team, 
coordinated by George Herbert.  An announcement will be made by them, 
not including news.announce.newgroups, when they are ready for the group 
to become operational again.”  No such announcement appeared.

PROPONENT:  Steve Bonine <spb@pobox.com>
