With the ME3 loosing interest in the 777-8, there is an opportunity for Boeing to optimize its configuration to best suite QF needs for the Sunrise project. It could mean a slightly shorter -8 than initially considered. This would also better suite the future freighter version by giving it slightly...Jump to post
EWR (VS001) is it's inaugural IIRC. And then ?..... IIRC....

Simple, there should have been a white paper setting out what they were going to do and how they were going to do it. this would have then been the basis of the Leave campaign, and something on which there could have been a proper debate at the time of the referendum. Instead as we now clearly under...Jump to post

And he makes it very difficult for EU-27 leaders to sell kindness to the people back home. Why would we help the UK if they threaten us? Of course we would enable Rees-Mogg's wet dream, but still.

Jacob Rees-Mogg has tweeted today, in a huff over any extension:: If a long extension leaves us stuck in the EU we should be as difficult as possible. We could veto any increase in the budget, obstruct the putative EU army and block Mr Macron’s integrationist schemes. admitting in one tweet, that as...Jump to post
Most of what you list here is unneccessary. First of all, with respect to the number of AoA sensors, two is sufficient. For a FBW aircraft, triple redundancy is necessary because the flight control computer needs valid data in order for the plane to fly. In the case of MCAS, it just needs to recogn...Jump to post
Except they didn't. The bill passed is specific to the date April 12th and has been so poorly and hastily concocted that it does little more than compel the Prime Minister to make a phonecall to Brussels to ask for an extension, which she said she is going to do anyway. It might as well have been w...Jump to post

Support for UKIP was lower at the last election because we expected to be leaving the wretched EU today. Unfortunately Parliament has let us all down.

How can electing people to represent your interest be pointless, would you prefer to be unrepresented? Or ...Jump to post

The question is if Brittain will have members of the new European Parliament or not.
