Lets See Who Knows This One

Wed Aug 03, 2005 2:03 pm

Lets see if any AL.netters know the reason as to why WD002 (777-200LR) was taken to the Paris Airshow and not WD001. I know the answer and am just curious as to how reliable/deep other .netters' sources are.

(edited to add 777-200LR)

You sound like an old boss of mine, who was always trying to sound smart, and loved to try and feel superior to everyone, by saying "I know the answer, do you?" Don't ask the f#cking question then.

I really hope you are not like him, and that you have just worded it wrongly.

Not meaning to be cocky, just trying to learn how accurate the sources are on this forum. Kinda new to it and trying to gauge the accuracy of the info. My bad on that

This question is like when you're in the woods with your buddies. All of the sudden one of them will say "twenty bucks to the man who knows how to get back to the car." "What me? Of course I know where the car is, I'm testing your navigation skills."

I can think of at least three reasons.

The obvious one is that the second airframe contains the first class cabin, as well as the A340 cross-section mock-up. It also has the crew rest area, and was able to carry the Boeing employees.

Agreed, and he's been doing this.

Clickhappy - good call. Didn't really consider those in the question, I was alluding to an incident, but those answers are totally correct.

Thanks wunala and haveblue for not answering the question. Love it how a simple piece of trivia with a not-ideal wording can turn into flaming-awesome!

Oh my God. How deep the sources go on this forum? Let's see. WD001 contains nothing but ugly test equipment. WD002 was specifically configured with a truly beautiful interior meant to sell the thing. I guess if they had wanted people to see what the innards of the aircraft look like, they would have sent WD001.

Anyone with access to an internet browser can tell you that, too.

An incident? Give me a break, LieDetectors. Boeing never planned on having the currently unpresentable WD001 on display in Paris.

Bad attitude? I am just glad I don't feel the need to come on the board and try to sound pompous and all-knowing while being as vague as possible in an attempt to cover up the fact that I don't know what I'm talking about. You'll probably find that you are better received around here if you are just straight-forward with everyone.

I think you kinda asked for it. Anyhoo, I don't know what incident you're referring to. But it doesn't seem like your source is correct if your source led you to believe WD002 was assigned for the Going the Distance Tour after a WD001 incident. AFAIK, the WD002 had long been the planned aircraft for the Going the Distance tour. You said you wanted to how accurate the sources are on this forum. I think you need to test the accuracy of your source first.

I am curious as to what purpose this thread serves. There are several people with information in different areas. There is not just one person who you can test on anything aviation related. This is the point of forums, discussion on what we know, not an inquisition on how accurate the stuff we know is. Really, you did not phrase it wrong at all. You meant it, just look at the thread title.
