This Is Interesting!

Thu Aug 24, 2000 12:20 am

I was just looking at plastic airplane scale model boxes of SQ and JAL, both the B744 and found differences in the dimentions stated there. Here is what is written.

JAPAN AIRLINES BOX
Length: 70.7m
Wing Span: 64.9m
Overall Height: 19.3m
Cruising Speed: 916km/h

SINGAPORE AIRLINES BOX
Length: 70.6m
Wing Span: 64.4m
Overall Height: 19.3m
Average Cruising Speed: 926km/h
(The JAL box did not state "average" but the SQ box did.)

Now, here is the data from the Boeing homepage.

Wing Span: 64.4 m
Overall Length: 70.6 m
Tail Height: 19.4
Typical Cruise Speed at 35,000FT: 910km/h

The differences may be slight but I still find it interesting.
