----Dash7----

If enough people agree with 2H7 in this round that the Dash7 is the best plane ever, thrn stick an extra vote on the end for the Dash7. If it gets over 20 votes i will make a 3 way final with the Dash7 included.

I think that a type should be specified for the 757 and 777, since one was for the 747. I just went off of the pictures and based my votes on a 757-200 and a 777-200.

The message you were about to post is too short and probably not of any higher value to the topic at hand. You should think long and hard before posting a message in this forum and make it detailed and a valuable addition to the topic discussed.

Avoid posting "Me Too" messages. These are messages that are posted by people who agree to a point being discussed and post a one liner, "me too!", "Good post Jim!", "I disagree" or similar message. This takes up time as readers must sort through these messages which have no real value to the group at large. Any message containing nothing more than a line or two of text is probably not worth posting.

If you have an opinion on a topic, you should in detail express why you have the opinion and what made you come to that conclusion.

Your post should be relevant to the topic discussed.

Oooooooh yeah...Dash-7, all the way!



Here's why:

On a maximum performance landing the airplane will be stopped before the engines even reach maximum reverse thrust.

The Dash-7 can be certified for ILS approaches up to 7.5°...a normal ILS having 3°...and CAT 2 approaches down to 100ft/30m decision height and 300m/1000ft RVR.

Take-off and landing is where the Dash-7 shines. Maximum Vr (rotation speed) is 85kts with an empty plane lifting off at 70kts. With maximum flaps Vref (speed over threshold) is a leisurly 83kts at max landing weight and 70kts for an almost empty plane. This allows for a landing roll of as little as 125m/400ft.

Rumour has it that Dash 7s have turned off at by-pass intersections 70m/230ft beyond the threshold. Spoilers, anti-skid, and reverse make all this feel a lot more solid than light aircraft with comparable performance (e.g. Cessna 210, Cessna 340).

In addition, the Dash-7 operates into and out of Courchevel, an "altiport" in the French alps. Its single runway 05/23 is 525m (1720ft) in length with a slope of 12 to 18%. At 6369 to 6580ft (1941 to 2006m), it is one of the highest hard-surfaced airfields in Europe.

The Dash-7....a 44,000 pound, 54-passenger airliner, services it:





information from http://members.aon.at/~slenz/dash7.html and edited for context


Finally, here's a great flight report:

We were at Unst in the Shetland Island, landing distance available 2,001 feet. I had just landed a four-engined fifty-one seat airliner on that runway using barely half that distance...something that could not be done in many light twins. We had on board forty passengers and four crew; landing weight 40,350 pounds. If that seems impossible, then you obviously don't know the Dash 7.

Dash-7 all the way!

I am re-arranging the layout of the tournament for the summer/autum version, so that we get a final where we have one from each manufacturer.

Quoting 2H4 (Reply 11):

Still needs 19 more votes to get through  Wink

Your point?

Nice to see i have made the hardest one. Cant wait for the final!

----concorde----

because it is pretty sad that Concorde is guaranteed to get dead far in the competition, it will not be included in upcoming comps. This is also because i have said before that it is only planes that are currently in commercial service, and Concorde no longer fits that title.Sorry to all concorde fans, but all i can say is tough luck!

747 - it is difficult to choose, until one considers the utility of Boeing's greatest...to date.

I would like to point out that I am basing the first answer on looks alone and word of mouth as I have never flown either Aircraft . Sad

Concorde .


I have flown the 757 but not the 777, and i liked the 757 a lot.

757.

i realise I have changed my mind and apologise if this causes problems.

competition OVER!

And your Results are...

747-400 14-12 Concorde.

and...

757 8-18 777.

The Dash 7 only received one measly vote and it needed 19 more votes. Ah well, always the autum competition 2H7!

Final is in a different thread now! Get voting!
