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

The amount of infrastructure changes made at airports to accommodate higher wings and engines for something of this scale would be more than or the same as the Airbus A380. I can't imagine many airlines wanting to redesign hangars and maintenance areas for something like this anytime soon. YES, I un...Jump to post

Hey mate, I'm not convinced that Boeing will be ready to launch the 797/MoM this year. I HOPE that they do but I suspect that engine-related issues may hold them up. I think that there is a good chance that Qantas will have chosen the Project Sunrise winner by the time of Paris or actually AT the P...Jump to post
I'm well aware the show isn't exactly around the corner but with 2019 now up and running, what are some things we can expect to be announced at the show? A350-1000ULR? 797? 777-10? Obviously these are pretty large scale projects, however as an example. My apologies if this has been discussed but my ...Jump to post
Japan Airlines has their A350s with '-942' rather than the '-941' we've seen on all other A350s.

Trent XWB engine issue? If you're implying the fact that the Trent XWB engines have issues then I'd be a bit off. This single incident can't determine that. If you're implying that this engine on this particular aircraft has an issues, then judging by the puff of smoke and the fact that they aborte...Jump to post
Hmmmm with their A350-1000s coming, how about a potential up gauge to the A350-1000ULR if it becomes a firm thing, even though the top up placed by Qatar has been indicated as an A350-1000 long range variant :scratchchin: Even a couple of low density 787s as stated but with larger aircraft becoming ...Jump to post
Interesting to see how long it takes to certify, googling the A332 first flight was Aug 97 and EASA certification Mar 98 and first delivery April 98. Well, the A330-200 had a 16 month, 630 hour certification process. The A330-300 a two year 1800 hours certification process. The A330-900 did it with...Jump to post
