RE: Did Boeing Stop B717 Production Too Early?

The wing is fine ... cleaner flow than any other in it's class. It's high loading provides a softer ride in turbulence. The "needed a new wing" angle pops up in every <acronym title="Air Madagascar">MD</acronym> discussion, and it has no real basis in fact ... just a talking point that reinforces th...

RE: When Will DL Begin To Retire The M88?

The cables only move the small aerodynamic tab, and the tab moves the surface. It's the most ingenius invention, IMHO, in commercial aviation history. Unless the cables are compromised the Maddog can safely fly without hydraulics, electrics, and even without both engines. No Souix City disasters for...
