While planes can extend their time aloft via aerial refueling, it would not be possible for a plane to stay aloft for 3 years only landing 30 times briefly to take on abductees. Planes require periodic maintenance. In the case of the Airbus A380 used by Crispin, it has a maintenance requirement that takes 55 days to complete, and this must be performed every 18 months to 2 years. Quantas for example spends 12 hours per week per aircraft. Every eight to 10 weeks, filters will be changed, key systems such as hydraulics will be lubricated and a detailed inspection of all the emergency equipment completed. A typical maintenance check on a Boeing 737 takes between six and 24 hours. Depending upon the nation of registration, it would be also be subject to periodic inspections to be deemed airworthy.

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Are you a gambling man, Crispin?
Sir Crispin Crandall: No. I abhor casinos.
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Oh, yes. Well, I would agree with you there. But perhaps you're familiar with the old saw "You can't beat the house"? No matter how many poor souls you turn into popsicles, the fix is in. The world in which you awaken will be one incapable of sustaining human life. And why? Because at the critical tipping point, one tragically quixotic megalomaniac cannibalized humanity of the very minds that might have been its salvation. You see, if you ...

The Biggest Plot Hole Ever...
8 November 2015 | by mkalinsky-1See all my reviews

I will start this by saying I love this show and turn my brain off to the obvious ripoffs from other series like 24 as much as humanly possible. That being said this episode has a plot hole you can fly an A380 through. Crispin Crandall supposedly lives on a plane that according to Aram has only landed 30 times in 3 years. This being a plane that supports a surgical staff, cryogenic storage tubes, and of course bathrooms for all these people. REALLY? Please for the love of God.... Can the writers use the break that is coming to consult new source material like the Bourne movies or just take the show into the X Files realm already?
