RE: 747-8 Information Update

This plane <b>rocks</b> big time! I think the stretch will do this design perfectly, as the plane will be longer, sleeker, and with the extended wingtips, will truly give the plane a <i>cooler</i> look, much more attractive than the ungainly A380. Don't flame me anyone, but IMHO (as a former automot...

RE: Official Qantas Order Result - Boeing 115 787s

That's a <b>most</b> impressive order by Qantas, clearly a great day for Boeing and a significant disappointment for Airbus' new programme. It is unfortunate, however, that these are "all or nothing" opportunities, as obviously both aircraft are very worthy candidates for the Australian air carrier....

RE: B747-9 A Threat To A380-800

I personally think that if Boeing were to stretch the upper deck by 12 seat rows (assuming 4 seats per row), they would then attain a seating capacity of 498 (450 currently + 48 additional) passengers. In attaining the 498 passenger figure, you're then only 52 seats shy of the A380, and then you can...

FYI ... I just 'dug up' a pic of the original Boeing "Intercontinental" ... strange (to me) that they would use the same 'nickname' twice. At least with the 787 they coined it the 'Dreamliner'.

That model is sick!

In a good way that is ... very, very impressive. If anyone has a link to detailed information about its construction, I would love to read more about it.

The one thing that really boggles my mind though ... why didn't he build a Boeing 747-8?

Inflight 200 Models

Do any of you guys/gals collect <b>Inflight 200</b> models 1/200th scale diecast airliners? I have a couple of the 747s and 707s and I must admit that these models are really sharp. I also collect some <b>Gemini</b> and <b>Dragon</b> 1/400s, but I have become really drawn to the realism of scale of ...
