Re: Airliner types under threat of extinction

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...

Re: Plane Crash in Waller County, Texas

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...

Re: what airlines did boeing thought would get the 747 8?

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.
