Is there some Airliners.Net requirement that there must always be at least one photograph of a Russian military aircraft (usually a fighter or helicopter) in the Top 5 and/or Photographer’s Choice at any given moment? Don’t get me wrong, the pictures are generally superb, and no I’m not arguing with...Jump to post
So what does the “premium” blue on their new livery stand for now? Blue-ish plate special?Jump to post
In most cases (especially the DC-9 family), the wings are pretty far aft, which would interfere with jetway placement.Jump to post
A good question would be how many of today's pilots learned to fly in jets, never a prop. I don’t know of any pilots that started off learning in jets. Exactly, so the technology that is used to train pilots is not good enough for pax? Does make you wonder why only the military uses jet trainers, i...Jump to post
This is a good point. I was wondering how airlines would persuade pilots to fly turboprops. Correct me if I'm wrong but not gaining jet time could be a major issue with the pilots flying turboprops. A good question would be how many of today's pilots learned to fly in jets, never a prop. I don’t kn...Jump to post

And when Boeing confirms it will develop a clean sheet MAX replacement, all Airbus needs to do is to stretch the A220 to develop a 160-seat A220-500. The A220 will then effectively becomes the A318/A319/A320 "clean-sheet" replacement, while the A321NEO stays on with another stretch to mak...Jump to post
FFS. By the time the wings would be attached to the first fuselage barrel of whatever, they'll be 100+ richer in MAXes. This is just WN waving their corporate sausage at Boeing and demanding freebies. You really think they'll receive 100 MAX before they could receive a220? Do you know how many MAXe...Jump to post
Deadly combination of pressure to git 'er done and a demanding requirement. Silicon Valley mentality infecting the engineering corps: we'll give them something serviceable and fix it later. A tactic "perfected" by another giant Washington-based company, one which hasn't put out a decent o...Jump to post

Bridge spans are incredibly strong and durable. The surface concrete will wear out well before the bridge will show signs of fatigue. Indeed. Look how some bridges in Europe, especially Italy, that are still in use today and are hundreds of years old. Reminds me of this old commercial: https://www....Jump to post
Whatever happens, Herb wouldn’t approve. I have a bad feeling that his legacy will be trashed in a few years. It’s already kinda diminished. His legacy went out the window as soon as WN instituted the Animal Farm-style boarding zone system they currently employ. The entire notion is all crap anyway...Jump to post
Way to pat yourself on the back, AA. No doubt Dougie is celebrating with a kegger or twelve. Yeah it's a shame. The word leadership used to have meaning. That word hasn't applied to AA in decades. Never was a fan of Crandall, but he was Winston Churchill compared to this current power-hungry booze ...Jump to post

That's a link to a 352-page Transportation Safety Board of Canada report. Read it. Read it again. Make a list of questions. Read it again.

I think the 727 used to shut down the middle engine to save fuel. I’m guessing that was during very empty ferry flights. I seriously doubt any country’s regulations would permit that during passenger-carrying ops. I do recall hearing stories of the DC-10s center engine being throttled down during c...Jump to post
