Re: B747-SP for sale, just $9.5m

Re: Did the DeHaviland Comet ever fly in the US?

0106861 Aerolineas Argentinas flew their Comet 4's from 1959 to mid December 1966 to NY and Miami. Miami may have lasted a while longer. AREA of Ecuador had one that was briefly used to fly to Miami. It ended up as a derelict and was broken up in Miami in the 1970's. The RAF flew them to NY on a fe...

Hi,

I do but unfortunately don't know anything about that bird. Tried to see what country it may have belonged to, (we don't have our own aircraft), looks like the old Yugoslavia, but I may be wrong.

Hi, Sorry, I'm a bit confused. Why does Airbus need to cut workers when their backlog is at an all-time high and they want to increase production? How is production going to increase with less workers? Also, what are the advantages of selling factories and/or transfer jobs at this time? Wouldn't the...
