RE: What Do You Think About The Hummer?

RE: Boeing Super Super Guppy

makes sense that boeing applies the things that provenly work for airbus. now they only need to apply these to their plane family aswell. production infrastructure is a good first step though.

RE: B737-900 V. A321

just to chip in my 2 cents on that range issue:
i dont think that it matters that much, since practically the max ranges of the a321 and then 737-900x will not be used often. i dont see too many airlines keen on cramming 180+ ppl into a narrowbody for 8+ hours.

i think the final one will have a larger fuselage diameter to carry standart containers like the a330. cargo plays a too big role to ignore that important aspect nower days.

As far as i know sweden has some sort of open society law in effect where every official document is public property and therefore accessible to everyone.
