No, seriously, there we were crossing the atlantic when I saw this beauty crossing our flight path...

Big version: Width: 2739 Height: 1457 File size: 1339kb


LOL!  Wink

All joking aside, this is my 6ft wingspan all foam construction PSS (Power Scale Soaring) glider.... Just finished it in the VS colours and now there's rumours of a cancellation?!?!?

Let's hope SRB doesn't announce anything like that at Farnborough this week!

Cheers!

U.K. long-haul airline Virgin Atlantic could adjust its order for six double-decker A380s as a result of continuing discussions with maker Airbus following delays to the A380 program, a spokesman said Sunday.

The carrier is talking to Airbus about compensation for any delays in deliveries of the planes but has a number of other options it might pursue. These include mixing the fleet, which means instead of an A380 the airline would buy another smaller aircraft, the spokesman said.

He said canceling the A380 order remains an option, but "we don't really want to do that." He acknowledged the A380 order could cange.

The airline still hasn't received a new timetable for delivery of the planes from Airbus, he added.

He won't. If he does, it would a loss of face for him as much as for Airbus.
