RE: Nuclear-powered Jet

Fun to see this subject. I just recently did a little reading about this. I also passed by the hangar that they reportedly tried to make it work in. It is a massive hangar in the middle basically nowhere. <a href="https://www.google.se/maps/place/Howe,+ID+83244,+USA/@43.857747,-112.7301707,339m/data...

RE: Cringeworthy A350 Video By Reuters

I personally like the new A350. You will be able to have high ceilings, extra windows and you all have it wrong. It doesn't have 4 engines. It is a twin engine airplane, that caries backup engines, just in case. The ultimate ETOPS plane.

While waiting for my flight back from Dallas on KLM, I could see some of what was going on with a Qantas flight. I was curious about their standard ops. There was a police officer staring at the plane, from the right side, for most of the loading time and then just before pushback, he went away. It ...
