737-8200 is not new or a rebrand, even though the “experts” think it is.
On Monday evening, I saw a Delta 777-200LR flying over Seattle on its way to SEA. Seeing a -200LR around here is pretty rare. I checked Flightradar24, and it showed its intended trip from ATL to PVG. Anyone have info as to why it diverted? Just an avgeek here who’s curiosity has got the best of him.Jump to post
“Big order”? Please. 30 (50) out of, what, 5000+? Everyone’s getting into the Boeing bashing now. After all, they are the easy target. Now, if Southwest or United cancel their entire orders (which is absolutely not going to happen), print “big order” in bold letters. I’ve never been a fan of the “ba...Jump to post
Sorry to be off-topic a bit, but with all the equipment inside a P-8, I find it very difficult to understand how 35 (or 38) passengers can fit, unless they’re all standing. The crew is usually the flight crew (2) and the mission crew, which can be up to 7. The max number of people that the P-8 can ...Jump to post

Didn’t AS say somewhere that they were all-in on the MAX? What would they lose if they cancelled their 321 order (which was originally a VX order, if I’m not mistaken)? Just my opinion (flame me if you feel you need to...seems to be a trend on a.net), but I can see them going back to an all-737 flee...Jump to post
This many post in, and no one comes up with a better name? Personally, I think it’s fine. Looks to be another Boeing-bashing post. Kick ‘em while they’re down, right?Jump to post
Any expansion to the west, and you’ll start cutting into a major bypass freeway (509) and the Burien area. There’s already some NIMBY persons in Burien who are pissed about QX’s departures to the north, where they cut right over town. Any expansion of SEA to the west will be fought by the “there’s t...Jump to post
Not sure how much the Dash 8 weighs, but if that fuel truck was full, it could be close to 100,000 lbs. I’m thinking that truck could easily spin that aircraft around. I’d put money on the fact that the driver wasn’t paying attention, and at night, lights on an aircraft definitely blend in with surr...Jump to post

Why build a smaller 737 when you have the whole E2 lineup? Southwest isn't going to replace 513 737-700s with E2s -- not when they got 241 -800s and Max 8s (and more coming). Nobody has pushed fleet commonality harder than WN. Sorry, I should have specified. Someone was commenting about a -5MAX. I ...Jump to post
I can't believe I'm letting myself get caught in this nonsense (I'd fly on a MAX right now, no questions asked), but too much is too much. We now live in a word where a snap decision is usually made via some "expert" on social media, such as this website. Well, lets bring some other facts ...Jump to post
Just an opinion, but I wish the airlines (specifically WS and AC) would continue the paint on the outside of the winglet all the way down to the bottom winglet.
Also, does AS have a line number yet? When is the expected roll-out? And, how about any updates on the -10?

Mods, please do move as you see fit. Just saw this come across the news. Does anyone know any more information about what happen?
It’s not just a cost issue, but a safety issue as well. Most fueling companies have realized its so much easier to leave the hydrant carts at the gate by the hydrant outlet (at least for most narrow body ops). Now, instead of running around in a 100k pound, 10000 gallon fuel truck, you can just hop ...Jump to post

I'm not a huge Whale fan (pun not intended), but that has to be one of the best liveries on the A380 by far. It fits the airframe perfectly. As a self-proclaimed Boeing fan, I can admit that I truly can't wait to see the other colors as they roll out.Jump to post
I've been in the fuel industry for 24 years. Bottom line is pay attention. Cross-contamination is usually the fault of the operator/fueler. I've heard numerous times where a truck load of gasoline was dumped in a diesel tank, and vise versa. I've also heard of 100LL being put in a King Air 200. If y...Jump to post
First off, I do kind of like the new livery, but getting rid of the iconic yellow was definitely a mistake. Even just the bird and circle on the tail in yellow would be better. Second, the new livery makes the A380 look about 100 feet long. Just something weird about the proportions with all that wh...Jump to post
By far the best places to see the B-52 would be Barksdale AFB in Louisiana and Minot AFB in North Dakota, the only two bases where they're stationed. For the B-1, Dyess AFB in Texas and Ellsworth AFB in South Dakota are the places to go. And, Whiteman AFB in Missouri is your go-to for the B-2. I und...Jump to post

Duh! Should have thought of that from the beginning. Definitely was a good looking bird. Would look even better in AS colors.Jump to post
Saw the demo 190-E2 with the shark mouth take off out of KBFI, then followed its flightpath on Flightradar24 to KSEA. Any ideas what it doing in the Pacific Northwest?Jump to post

Thank you for the information. Definitely interesting seeing FedEx’s pride and joy using UPS’s Seattle home base.
I wouldn't be so fast to merge this thread with the other. That other one is so far off from this news that this order deserves it's own thread.

Unbelievable that the venerable Boeing 747 first flew 49 years ago today! People seem to use the term “game changer” rather loosely, but she was indeed a real “game changer” in the history of aviation. Long Live the Queen!
