Re: Why can’t we have shorter treads ?

I find the new system much easier to follow compared to trying to find “Part 15” of a 29 part thread on the old system.

Presumably it's designed to sustain the max weight on the nose landing gear using one wheel?

Wasn't the MD-80 the first to have a glass cockpit?

Re: A Netters: Rank Your Most Revolutionary Commerical Aircraft.

3. A320. Airbus had the insight to take an existing military technology (true fly-by-wire) and apply it for the first time to commercial jets. Doesn't Concorde hold that honour? For me it's Concorde for the reason quoted above, and the fact that it enabled supersonic commercial transportation. My n...

Re: TXL to be kept open

Wouldn't it make more sense to keep SXF, after all it's just on the other side of the BER runway?

Maybe they could dig a tunnel between the two sides of the runway?

Re: Airbus is examining 'A380-Plus'

Unlikely for Airbus to do this without having a launch partner agreed.

Le Bourget tomorrow morning should be interesting!

How exactly does one tell the difference between a CEO and NEO?



Engines, that is it.



The other smaller indicator is the missing pylon extension fairing that was removed for neo.

The pylon is essentially much higher up, and shorter (due to removed PEF).

Re: Condor A321 Ground Incident At SXF

Incredible repair.

I'm interested to know, who is responsible for the design effort to make a major repair like this one happen? Would it have been designed by Airbus, or could this have been done by a MRO?

Forum Search After 15 June

Is it just me or do forum searches only show posts from before 15 June?

Sorry if it's been discussed before - tried doing a search but obviously not getting any relevant results!

Re: Strange looking A320(?) with bulge at AMS

It was white and red, and it was taxiing around AMS around 4PM CET today (22/07/2016). Impossible to tell if it was arriving or departing I'm afraid. It was definitely an A320 size, the engines and tail looked like an A320, no wing fences. No 737 either however as it didn't haven't the classic 737 k...

Strange looking A320(?) with bulge at AMS

All, I just saw what I believe to be an A320 at AMS. Unfortunately I wasn't quick enough to snap a picture, but it appeared to have a bulge on the starboard side roughly above the front door. Does anybody have any idea what this may have been? Maybe any keen AMS spotters that are around? As I said b...
