So KLM signed an LoI for E2 and AFR would order A220. That's interesting. If this comes to pass, it will be a wasted opportunity. This should have been a single large order for A220s to be shared between AF and KL, which would have helped rationalize a portion of the short/medium haul fleet and wou...Jump to post
Man, the deference to our betters in "public service" is frightening. It is almost like I was just air-dropped into an episode of "Yes, Minister." Several (UK) politicians are on record that Yes minister comes scarily close to what really happens behind closed doors. It's well k...Jump to post
You really should change the misleading title to make clear that this is a parody. Does it really matter this is a parody? Half the threads covering US-politics on this forum are based on BS.

In fact it looks decidedly similar to the F-35 and even more so like the MDD original concept for the JAST, the precursor to the JSF program, from the early 90s.

Given sluggish economic growth, and the fact that it took them about a decade to recover from 2008 crisis - I am not sure they fully understand everything.

Between the world wars there were plenty of types that where made specifically for airlines. Usually build in very small quantities.

Just curious. Has an US president lost an election while the US was in war? If not I bet we will see more false flags until 2020....
