Wow, a mouth full.
VirginFlyer, I did not "boast about forcing Aviatsiya out". I didn't. He blames me for why he left, and I find that strange. He has fought in non-av with other users, and yet, he seems to blame me for "forcing him to leave". We've rarely ever confronted each other.
B4e, you made a statement: The avionics are Western, this is known; and very ungrammaticaly followed it up in a subsequent post: The avionics suite on that aircraft were redone.
Clearly, as a teen from Chicago, it is highly unlikely that you have first-hand experience of the Polish VIP aircraft yet you are speaking on here as if you do. The only people who do are members of the Polish Air Force. Draw your own conclusions.
Very, well, the Avionics suite on that aircraft WAS redone. Strange how you point that out. Second of all, I do not speak like I have first hand experience with Polish VIP aircraft. Like I mention, as you just did, the only people who do are members of the Polish Air Force. As for the draw your own conclusions remark, I find that comical. What you really are trying to communicate is that we should draw YOUR conclusions.
Next, you try to back-track on your earlier assertions that the TU154 has either been re-engined with RR engines (Poland had it's Tu-154Ms reengined ) or alternatively that RR maintains their Soloviev engines (As for the engines, it's possible that RR did work on them) despite having been told by a number of people that know considerably more about aircraft maintenance than you do that it is impossible.
Back-track? I stated in one of my posts..."Correction" It's not backtracking, it's admitting a mistake. I was told that engine maintenance was impossible AFTER my second post, in a rude way might I add.
And yes, I am in very frequent contact with Rolls Derby (Derby is the city where the engines are built and Rolls has its head office, since you clearly didn't know that, either) - what engine do you think powers the L1011?
Good for you. Why did you bring up the L1011? Yes, everyone knows they are powered by RR engines. But how is that relavent?
You are typical of the teen know-it-all that is significantly lowering the quality of these forums and driving away the best of the users. Not only do you post cr@p, but when you are challenged about it, instead of apologising and actually learning something from people that have considerably more experience than you do, you attack those people and try to weasel around with what you said or did not say previously.
You are typical of a man who jumps into a fight at whatever chance he gets. I do not lower the quality of the forums by mistaking facts. If I make a mistake, you point it out without saying that I lower the quality of the forums, without insulting me, and without consistantly attacking me. And where did I weasel around. Seems to me like I pointed out inaccuracies in your assessment of me.
Finally, some more information for you, B4e - You are the weakest link, goodbye! is the catchphrase of Ann Robinson, the presenter of a programme called the Weakest Link. I strongly suggest you take it to heart and refrain from participating here for some time ... like the next five years.
This is also unproductive. I'll continue to participate in the forums, and there's nothing you can do about it. As for the Weakest Link, NBC here in the US will drop that show soon. With the way you post in other forums, that is advice that you should take to heart!
I agree totally with SAS23, Aviatsiya.ru and VirginFlyer. Boeing4ever, your posts have caused the forums to become worse these days. You never admit you're wrong, aren't you?
Here we go, another so called "forum expert" saying that I degenerate the forums. Sorry pal, but I do not. Users like TNNH do. You never admit when you're chasing a wild goose do you?
Well, let me tell you something, YOU'RE WRONG! Face it. If you can't face the fact that you are wrong, I really think you need psychiatric help. The TU-154 can't be re-engined, by the way. Even if they were re-engined, they will choose Russian engines first! And, since when does Boeing build avionics systems? I thought Rockwell Collins and Honeywell did that.
You see, you haven't participated in this thread, and once again, you bring up things that I have already pointed out as wrong. I myself never said Boeing redid the avioncs on that aircraft. As for "YOU'RE WRONG"...did I say I was right? Saying I need psychiatric help is outrageous. You don't know me and suddenly, you will assess my mental well-being. I give you the same advice friend.
BTW Boeing4ever, is "mudslinging" your favourite word of late? I don't see any instances of mudslinging in any of Aviatsiya.ru's and SAS23's posts. You are the one making it up.
Is this relevant? They attacked me, called me stupid, said I post crap, and claimed I ruin the forums. Sorry, but they are mudslinging.
The thing is, many more people hate you! If so many people hate Aviatsiya.ru, how can he have so many people on his respected user list?
Once again, you assume everyone hates me, and you just met me! I have witnessed SAS and Aviatiya's fights with other users on the non-av forums. So I know who hates who. You seem to hate me simply for the sake of hating me. You came out of nowhere to attack me.
The fact is, RR DOES NOT have the technical expertise to maintain Russian-made engines.
This has been discussed. Sorry, but you're late in pointing that out.
Why can't SAS23 have links to people at Rolls-Royce? He knows a lot about the L1011, and there is no reason for him not to be near the Rolls-Royce staff!
By this logic, I could have links to the Polish airforce, or the Illinois Air National Gaurd. There is always room for doubt. Do you know SAS personally? No, you don't. So don't assume.
Firstly, did SAS23 even say you are a member of the Polish Air Force? You are the one putting words in HIS MOUTH, not the other way around!
Actually, SAS insisted that I was talking like I was a member of the Polish airforce. Therefore, he WAS putting words in my mouth, much like you are right now.
Boeing4ever, I am astounded at the level of intelligence you seem to have. You really need to grow up QUICKLY.
I am astounded that a 13-15 year old will tell me to grow up when he has NO grasp of the situation at hand. You need to grow up, cool down, read, and then forumulate decent arguments. I clearly have more intelligence than you. So I was mistaken about the engines on a Tu-154M. Does that mean I suddenly know nothing about everything? Poor assessment indeed.

PS-SAS, get a pic of a POLISH AF Tu-154M, then we can view it and discuss avionics modifications.
