Re: How are some vintage airliners still operational?

I've known some great people involved in a few restorations and I don't think a company could really manage it. It's really a labor of love, and in order to be done properly, timelines and strict budgets go out the window. I'm sure having a dedicated team of salaried restorers would speed things up...

737 MAX Height

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H2tuKiiznsY I have watched this video by Vox about the 737 max, on how they have adjusted the jet engine height higher than usual (which has affected the physics of the aircraft when taking off). It was acknowledged that the 737 is lower than the A320, and a new engin...

Re: How are some vintage airliners still operational?

So technically its possible to rescue an old aircraft rotting in the boneyard? They should do that to some of the old 747s and iconic airliners in the future I think with the more modern 1960's vintage and up it will be harder to do. The systems of these planes are a lot more complex than say a 194...

Re: How are some vintage airliners still operational?

For the fuselage there is often a life extension program that requires parts to be reinforced or replaced after a number of cycles. Is there a maximum number of life extensions the fuselage can undergo? I don't think so. It would come down to an economic argument. You could keep flying an airliner ...

Re: How are some vintage airliners still operational?

Any aircraft can be maintained in airworthy condition as long as you perform enough maintenance. However, you might end up with a "Ship of Theseus", where most original parts have been replaced. Airliners have a design life measured in cycles and hours. This can be extended through mainte...

Anyone else collects fuselage skin tags?

https://www.aviationtag.com/en/ https://planetags.com/ These two companies cut out fuselage and convert them in to keychain tags. I found out about them last year and have been hooked into it, took me a year though before I actually bought. My first orders are the B-HUI from Cathay and 9V-SKA A380, ...

https://edition.cnn.com/travel/article/20-iconic-aircraft-vintage/index.html I sometimes see people posting photos and videos of vintage airliners, such as DC-8 and 707, or sometimes even A300/A310 flying around. These planes are most likely over 40 years in service and seriously how do they stay in...

Super Guppy Hydraulic and Electric Systems

I wonder how that plane maintains a stable connection between the cockpit and wings, engines, and tail. This plane opens its fuselage and the opening is between the cockpit and wings. So every time the fuselage opens, it is assumed that the connections are severed, and reconnected again once closed?...

http://d2rormqr1qwzpz.cloudfront.net/photos/2015/07/08/55-78072-loading-1436374892.jpg As we can see here the whole body is cut in half every time it opens, including the cockpit. Would this not sever any hydraulic or electronic connections between the cockpit and the rest of the plane? Is it

How will Boeing name its future aircraft?

I wonder how will name its new aircraft if all their 7X7 series has been discontinued in the future. I am also curious why Boeing does not fill up the slots of discontinued aircraft. For example, since the 717 is discontinued, why don't they introduce a new aircraft and name it the new 717. Or reser...

Would it be correct to say that the Boeing 767 is a dying type of aircraft? Basically, my question is: why don't I see too many 762s around anymore? All I see nowadays are 763s and occasionally 764s. What would the price of a 762 be today? Were they not efficient or something? I don't get it. Overa...
