I don’t see Trump’s ego letting him bail on the election and go anywhere. Having said that, I agree with you he’s unlikely to go to Russia or the KSA. He doesn’t need to.

So, I am curious about something: When he is formally charged, he could be released without bail for a number of reasons, but couldn't he simply go to Russia or Saudi Arabia or Hungary at that point?

Any aircraft flying in Class A airspace (FL180-FL600) is required to have ADS-B 1090ES (Mode S). It's possible that the 753's only have this mode and not 978UAT (many have both), which might be what the tracking site receiver is using. You do get different tracks for the same flights depending on w...Jump to post

The faster gear retraction interests me. Airbus is predicting that with the sum total of these improvements (gear, flaps), there can be a 3.5 ton increase in payload on the A359 and a 2.5 ton increase for the A35J.

I think that the 737 will not get a new design, nor will it be replaced anytime soon. I think within two decades you're going to see Boeing get forced into a redesign.

Why doesn't the A320 have a riser duct? It has many of them, next to about every second frame and on both sides of the cabin.

The FAA has crew alerting requirements for which the 737 is grandfathered. However, the FAA will no longer respect that grandfathering.

UA 2693 seems to have taken off from LCQ and is now showing a destination of LCQ and is flying in circles between FL 330 and 370. Any idea what's going on? It seems like a strange origin for a training flight and 2693 is used for revenue flights on other days. The aircraft is N445UA, an A320.Jump to post
