Re: Boeing rolls out 787-9 in "Dreams take flight" livery

Dreams take flight? Someone in Boeings PR dept. is being overly optimistic, though I guess they have to be right now.

Re: Federal Prosecutors Expanding Boeing Investigation to CHS 787 Production Site

This is all going to make a great novel, or indeed factual book in the future.

It's already reminding me of a published novel: Michael Chrichton's "Airframe".

Technically the "others" don't play well with Iran. Mainly due to "good ol' USAyyyyy" whom the rest of the world then bow down and scrape to follow.

Re: KLM, Lufthansa & Finnair using North Korean airspace!?

My God, the amount of people on here that are probably wearing tin-foil hats whilst commenting is ridiculous.

You've probably more chance of your airliner developing a catastrophic failure (engine or airframe) during your flight than coming to ANY kind of grief flying through NK airspace.
