The uncle of my wife's best friend's auntie works at the company that makes the little aeroplane models on plinths. They just received a rush order for A350s in QF colours. Order to be delivered next week. Just sayin'!
Happy Weekend everyone!
Every day i read these pages and the disbelief of how Boeing behaves just increases. I am not an MBA or Executive level employee. What I would like to know is, are the Boeing C-suite people sitting around and thinking 'yes, we are handling this correctly and in line with all our corporate training i...Jump to post
You are taking quotes out of context and mixing up OldAeroGuy and me. Oops, sorry for that ! :white: The correct post would be: That being said I'll bet you I practised it more (stalls) than either of the ET pilots plus full spins which I doubt they did. https://www.airliners.net/forum/viewtopic.ph...Jump to post

2) MCAS does not introduce a new failure mode, it adds another source of runaway stabilizer. 3) MCAS appears to increase the likelihood of runaway stabilzer on a 737 by a few orders of magnitude. MCAS-sourced runaway stabilizer presents much different symptoms. It is strictly periodical, and relent...Jump to post
MSPNWA, it is my suspicion that you are paid by Boeing to be on these pages. It is also clear that they are not getting value for money. New acc, joined last month. Does that make you airbus employee? LOL. Children. In my case, ive been a reader here for many years but its has been the disgusting a...Jump to post

You have to pay extra for tea to go with your scone? Is this the AoA disagree warning light all over again? Corporate greed? Will BA be pressured to provide tea as standard?

Oh the irony!!
Boeing: "how dare you suggest the Max is different to the NG..."
Boeing fan boys: "how dare you suggest the Max is the same as the NG..."
In my world, i am required to view issues through the prism of Negligence/non-Negligence. Put simply, my own personal thought exercise is as follows. 1. Is there a body of reasonable opinion (relevantly qualified and experienced opinion) that would state that the MCAS system as originally designed a...Jump to post
Why does everyone still seem to think that shit pilots with shit training share no blame in these accidents? Meh, six months from now no one will care or remember and likely the MAX will be the safest aircraft available. I can guarantee you that in six months a lot of people will still care, especi...Jump to post
Here is another thought exercise im interested in. If money was no object in terms of structure materials only, what would be the best/most optimal material from which to construct an a350 sized aircraft. Or put another way, are there realistic/optimal materials that have not been used simply becaus...Jump to post
Galaxyflyer, at least i got some sense from you. My questions are not necessarily about what has gone before or even the state of the art now, its a concept for the future. The notion that it wont ever happen because it hasnt happened already is clearly false.Jump to post

The advantage is obvious, reduce drag. I am sure that is the very reason the jet engines are retractable on gliders. Not such an amazing leap of imagination to see that concept being applied on larger aircraft IN THE FUTURE! Could even be centre-line thrust, not wing based. I am interested to know s...Jump to post
And yet you are still here... Says a lot.
Making predictions is difficult, especially about the future. Thats why its a thought exercise.
I wonder what happened to you to make you behave like this?
Fine, jog on! I am thinking, in this thought exercise, about a clean sheet design concept, where optimal cruise engines are supplemented by retractable thrust to be deployed when needed i.e at takeoff. I dont see that as such an outlandish concept for the future despite what that silly sausage Pikac...Jump to post
I have no need to prove anything, the purpose of the thread is quite clear. You seem to be an 'angry' chap who is quite vulnerable.
Anyway, back to my chosen topic. In the future i am certain that 'deployed as needed' engines will be in use.
Pikachu, you continue to embarrass yourself. Why the frustration? Things not going well.? Retractable engines will happen in commercial flight, youll see.Jump to post

Im sure such comments are your way of making yourself feel superior (perhaps making up for shortcomings elsewhere) but its unnecessary. And, as it turns out, after a bit of research, the 'thought' has been deemed good enough to make it into production on several aircraft.
The point would be to design an aircraft for, say, 500 passengers in 3 comfortable classes, but with much better economics than an A380. The small engines will essentially be used for providing the additional thrust when required, such as at takeoff, but provide much less drag and fuel consumption w...Jump to post
Would it be feasible to design a quad with, for example, two Trent xwbs as the inner pair and two much smaller GTFs as the outer pair (or any other combination of engine type) What would the pro's and cons be? how could issues such as engine out and asymmetric thrust problems be resolved?Jump to post
