Orange isn't considered a classy colour, it's commonly used by cheaper brands like Easyjet.

Re: Algerian Military Il-76 Down Near Algiers

It's a big aircraft but my first thought was also, wow, 250 pax in an Il-76?

Wikipedia gives no info about the number of seats that can be fitted. However, it says a cancelled version was a double-decked 250-passenger airliner. So, the single cargo deck must be packed with 250...

Re: Pilot killed as CF-18 crashes near Cold Lake

The question is why? Is it due to luck running out? Due to maintenance? Due to lack of training? Or something else. Crash numbers are notorious hard to interpret. The Dutch, for example, had 63 accidents (some have been repaired though), with their F-16's. Operated since 1979 and 213 ordered. The n...
