Re: KLM 747-400ERF loses flap during approach

That's only true in a vacuum. That flap is way too big to fit in a Dyson.

Re: 60 Minutes Australia special on 737max

"We were under pressure to minimize changes, to cut costs, and to get it done quickly", said every engineer, ever. This is not scandalous. "Was there a flaw in the system?": Clearly. But it will be corrected like every design, manufacturing, or process flaw discovered in the last...

Re: A350 Production And Delivery Thread Part 17

"you can see immedaitely" You must have really good eyes! ;) While I have no first-hand knowledge of the events leading to the 787's grounding, I expect the FAA did everything they could to avoid a repeat. This likely includes requiring more extensive testing and analysis. I don't blame t...
