Where is the pride? It isn't about 'pride', it is all about money. Look at US cars. The don't sell in europe because of price, they are actually cheap, very cheap. But they are designed to do the absolute minimum to safe costs. They use fuel like they don't care about future generations, they can't...Jump to post
With the possibility of killing two literal birds with one metaphorical stone, why not use raptors such as falcons to hunt drones? There are dozens of videos of eagles and similar birds attacking drones mid-flight on YouTube, and when they're not hunting drones they could help control or or scare a...Jump to post
So now we have welfare for farmers, the American consumers will face infaltionary prices, and the economy will slow down , with tax revenues plummeting and the debt rising.

OK, I am now a 100% sure he is insane, he just tweeted: Talks with China continue in a very congenial manner - there is absolutely no need to rush - as Tariffs are NOW being paid to the United States by China of 25% on 250 Billion Dollars worth of goods & products.

From where I'm sitting though, my view is that the longer Boeing delays launching, the more the case weakens as some of these airlines will go for the A321neo, LR or even a widebody. Airlines need to make decisions at the appropriate time for their future fleet requirements to ensure they get them ...Jump to post

Shouldn't be too difficult. Retrofit a CIWS on to each of the existing LLWAS detector poles already strategically placed around the perimeter of most larger airports. Problem solved.

The solution is basically jamming equipment and counter measures. Law shold be simple - flew on Airport Restriction Zone = Drone shot down. This is the only way to stop this.

While we are mostly discussing the MAX, maybe we should have a look at what came out of Boeing over the last years and decades wrt 'safety culture': - 787, grounded - 748, nearly grounded and big flutter problems - 767 (Tanker) client refused over 2 periods to take up any of them because of quality...Jump to post

So, the CEO says several times in public that they could go for a all Airbus fleet. But somehow Airliners is able to tell us that the best they can do is wait for a imaginary plane in 2025 and holding on to its grounded MAXs. All the while there is not even a authority to offer this plane and the la...Jump to post
Once the media moves on and stops shoving everything happening anywhere in the world related to Boeing down everyone's throats the general public will forget and move on. Even websites that say "Equipment: XXXX" don't say "Max" they'll say "73M" or "3M8" or s...Jump to post
