The Singapore Airshow is coming up soon, isn't it? Any chance we could see an order announcement from an Asian carrier there?Jump to post

After getting a new cabin in DRS (Dresden, Germany) Qantas' VH-OQH is on the way back to Sidney, directly! I wonder if this is the longest non stop (ferry) flight of an A380 ever? The start was deep in the night so I could not follow it, but it must have been impressive using full length of the run...Jump to post
Sam Chui has covered the details on the upcoming Qantas London to Sydney test flight. I believe he'll be on board to cover it so that will be interesting. https://samchui.com/2019/11/13/qantas-prepares-for-london-sydney-test-flight/#.Xcv2C1czaUk Not the biggest fan of his videos but he's got some in...Jump to post

Must have been pretty scary.... Haven't seen any statements from AA, Republic or Embraer too.
IndiGo placed a firm order for 300 A320neo Family aircraft including the XLR in a deal worth $33 billion at list prices:

Sam Chui reporting on it now. Pretty sad to see such an old aircraft go in such way
Hoping for a good outcome for the crew, although photos and videos show this may not be the case....

It certainly is a bit confusing...
Sam Chui has reported on it now as well.

Quite the unfortunate accident. Shame to lose a young one
Glad everyone is safe though!
Apparently Emirates is really narrowing down on how this was released. Websites that published this are being hasted for sources.....
Note: Heard this from a writer who reported this on a different page - take with usual skepticism.
Ouchies! Had to be the 200th frame tooJump to post

The plane though has been spotted https://twitter.com/djsaviation/status/1105718165684670464?s=21 What's with his logo on the aircraft when it isn't his shot and how come he's the only person publishing photos? Looks like it's just a 'cleverly' placed watermark. He mentions as much in the comments ...Jump to post
And it do not happen today since the crash of ET302. Hope the 777X does not delay longer.

A truly horrific accident. Condolences to the families and friends involved indeed.

Excellent outcome for Airbus. Deep down its hard though.Jump to post
Emirates orders A330neo and A350, Airbus cancels A380 line:

Well an EK A380 was performing test flights today in primer so it won't be long before they take an aircraft from Airbus.Jump to post

Worth noting that Jon Ostrower - an incredibly renowned modern aviation journalist - has released an article which states the A330neo is an option being looked at by Emirates:
https://theaircurrent.com/aircraft-prod ... r-a330neo/
I'm not sure if I'm crazy or not but didn't Emirates want to retain the mixed fleet of Airbus and Boeing rather than taking sides? Makes sense as both offer things the other does not.Jump to post
It is quite obvious to me that this one is not going to EY - the tail fin is left unpainted. We normally see the tail fin painted even though the fuselage is still in primer. Normally yes! But there have been exceptions! http://www.airliners.net/photo/Untitled-Virgin-Atlantic-Airways/Airbus-A350-10...Jump to post
I bloody well hate Alex Macheras, mainly because of his terrible attitude towards anyone who complains about his work and his title of "analyst", however he's all of a sudden changed his stance on the whole thing. Note how he always defends his point, no matter the circumstances. https://t...Jump to post
I feel as if this is a way for you to get additional views on your own video.
Other than that, the poor quality and annoying music distracted me from the facts that can easily be found in the brochure offered by RR.
Delta A330-900 MSN 1915 out of the hangar:
This function sounds sensible, but I am also scared of the different failure modes. Seems like this crew found potentially one failure mode... would be bad if this was triggered in the air. That being said, Boeing engineers certainly know that for something like this they need to run the full analy...Jump to post
Reading between the lines of a couple of posts elsewhere it seems that a possible cause of this roll back was a system called TCMA (Thrust Control Malfunction something-or-other). This is a function of the FADEC on many Boeing aircraft and is designed to shutdown one or both engines if it thinks th...Jump to post
