I believe the single vertical tail would have been applied to Army Air Force B-24s as well had production continued further.Jump to post
Of course, you realize the forum and data you are quoting was from a 2009 posting. If you read the RFP, the implication is a 767 sized aircraft. In addition, this is for the KC-Y, which is an interim tanker. https://www.defensenews.com/air/2021/06/16/another-boeing-airbus-tanker-war-is-coming-soon/...Jump to post
Alabama and Mississippi still recognise January 18th as “MLK Day” and “Robert E Lee’s Birthday”. Lee had nothing to do with either state, he was a proud Virginian first and foremost. Texas also observes “MLK Day” on the 18th and then “Confederate Memorial Day” on the 19th. Mississippi takes the ove...Jump to post
Jesus specifically calls out the hypocrites who pray conspicuously in public. Not only is DeSantis lousy at respecting church-state separation, he's also lousy at being a Christian.Jump to post
We tried wasting the Pentagon's money, and it didn't work, so let's try wasting Texas' money instead! Gotta close that boondoggle gap with California somehow.Jump to post

Man, talk about forward looking statements.
That one was nuts! Kept me watching every lap though. I feel bad for Hamilton, but worse for Verstappen, who was driving about as well as you could ask anybody to until he lost that tire. Vettel also driving a lot better than I'd previously been inclined to give him credit for.Jump to post
In addition to the Swedish examples, "Final Cut: The Post-War Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress" by Scott Thompson notes that a single B-17 was also civilianized by Boeing and TWA. Registrations were NX4600 and NL1B. No photos of the interior, and it may not have been used for scheduled service,...Jump to post

Gonna be hard to keep this thread clear of politics but still worth a discussion. Essentially, the letter seems to ask why are employees prohibited from expressing political views but the company itself can do whatever they want.

What's so interesting about this is the calculations that Belarus may have done in the planning. I assume they had a pretty good idea that the international reaction would be as it is. Did they really assume folks would believe the bomb-scare story? Or, did they basically not care and made up such ...Jump to post

Yes, my point is that alt-left "critical race theory" is approximately as bad, and as unconstitutional, as the Jim Crow racial segregation it claims to oppose. They're not that different. They are both filth, and both illegal IMO. Nonsense. "Critical race theory" is a buzzword t...Jump to post

No, I am saying that Belarus had every single right to do it and that many here should drop the shocked and disgusted attitude since their own governments have committed much worse crimes. Only difference is that Belarus did it at home. I mean, if you don't think it's good, you sure are throwing up...Jump to post

Total annihilation of Hamas will absolutely not happen. The hardliners in Israel need them, just like Hamas needs the settlers and the Israeli bombings. They feed off each other. The real threat to ethnic nationalists and religious extremists is never the radicals - it's the moderates.Jump to post

Or to put it another way, that 51% and 35% tells us how many people think something, but it doesn't tell us why they think it.

How do you weaponise a virus without it eventually infecting your own population? One of the defining feature of a weapon is that you can aim it.

What’s a 20.06? Never heard of it. Now, if you’re thinking .30/06, you need to remember it was a MILITARY designed round for a MILITARY ASSAULT RIFLE—the Springfield 1903.

The biggest deterrent to more vaccinations is there presently is NO incentive to be vaccinated. You get vaccinated, a nice CDC form signed saying you’re vaccinated on xx date.
