Re: FAA Confirms Boeing Halts 787 Deliveries

American and Qatar have taken delivery of many airplanes from CHS. The others have few if any left to deliver. AA has yes, but behind the scenes there’s some squabbling about that from what I’ve been told. Qatar? You must’ve missed the huge uproar they had about CHS. Not the point. The point was th...

Re: FAA Confirms Boeing Halts 787 Deliveries

I pine for the days when Boeing built airplanes. Not like it is now when they seem to be assembling kits. Perhaps a few thousand passengers per year care where their aircraft are produced/assembled (who pines for the day when A220's were only assembled in Mirabel?), and zero commercial airlines do....

BTW, the D850 is an FX camera, so lens focal length is what it is. That’s correct, I neglected to see the 850 and assumed he was on a DX body for some reason. I’m n...

Tiger is probably not worth even attempting an edit due to poor lighting conditions, the second aircraft (not good with vintage military types, sorry) is quite noisy and lacks the quality for that size. The light is also posing some issues as it has blown out the wing/fuselage.
