Just to bring in the latest update on this sad story: https://nypost.com/2021/10/24/body-of-united-airlines-executive-jacob-cefolia-found/ Sadly Mr. Cefolia's remains were found in the forest preserve where his car had been left, and it appears to be self-inflicted.

I’m hearing that prices are upwards of 7 figures ton bring time sensitive high dollar shipments from Asia. We are going to start to seeing aircraft dragged out of places normally long forgotten.

I have to think the once ubiquitous B737-200 is one such example, literally down to single-digit numbers anywhere in the world Personally, I'd replace the 737-200 with the 737-500 (and maybe even the whole of the 737 classic series) because aside from the 737-400Fs (which might actually increase in...Jump to post

Ok, before everyone attacks me for this, it was my dad who brought this up and agreed with it. I personally disagree with his opinion, but while the both of us were sitting and watching Smithsonian channel Air Disasters, he out of the blue was like "Why can't they have one AI and one human in t...Jump to post
Could the aircraft have been overloaded? Though maybe not, since it is likely the takeoff was rejected. So maybe some sudden brake/reverse thrust failure or the engine(s) were somehow stuck on full power. Or, more likely, the pilots were too late in aborting the takeoff because they had already reac...Jump to post

DL/AS - yes they are not friends but makes the most sense for both Just asking, for what reasons will this work? I'm only asking, not trying to conjecture against your argument or whatever.

I wish the 747-8 was more of a success, but I clearly understand why the -8i variant in particular was a flop.
Some people were mentioning Emirates and the pax variant, but I think that they had about 10 -8Fs on order, cancelling 5 of them, and then cancelling the remaining 5 in late 2012.

I think my teacher in my aerospace class at school told us this story. According to what he said, the pilots didn't even do their checklists correctly (didn't do Controls: Free Movement). He also said he lost a good friend in this accident.
May all who died in this accident rest in peace.

When did Boeing destroy the tooling for the 717? Replace the "1" with a "5" and the replies for this thread will double... :rotfl: Anyways, back to a meaningful reply, I think that the decision to end 717 production probably led them to scrapping the tooling within at least 1-2 ...Jump to post

Up until 2013, American probably had the oldest without changing as they had the red, white, & blue stripes on the polished metal skin.

Mcdonnell Douglas planes are tanks. They have a long lives ahead of them. Easily, the MD-11Fs, DC-10 tankers, and a handful (maybe 30-40) MD-80s'll remain.

767 because it has a comfortable configuration, and it has the beastly performance and looks of a 757. Sad that its little brother didn't last as long.

To be fair before 9/11 nobody had hijacked and flown aircraft into buildings before 9/11.
