Re: Boeing 737MAX Grounded Worldwide Q3 2019

Unfortunately there are many people who believe that the pilots are obsolved of all blame because they are dead -- that's not the way it works. As long as you even hint at any pilot blame you will be trashed. They might have made misakes, but the question might be, would they have made such mistake...

Re: Airbus Reveals Hybrid-Electric 'Bird Of Prey' Airliner Concept

I get upset when someone touts an electric vehicle as cleaner, greener, more sustainable. It depends on where the electricity comes from, and in the US at least, its mostly fossil fuels. My daily driver is a Tesla, but I have some gasoline cars too. I tell people I have three oil powered cars, and ...

If they eventually decides to change the marketing name or remove it, it is not because they believe people are stupid, but because the name has received so much scrutiny.

With all this Boeing issue, one has to wonder, if Boeing was to fall down, LM could buy out the commercial division and rebrand, that means as Trump suggested you'd have a L738 (instead of B 737-8 Max). It's a win win, Boeing keep the military division, America keeps their dominand manufacturer and ...
