RE: A380 Delays - A Perspective

The very earliest studies for a large airplane at Boeing started in mid-1962 (for what was to be the C5 rather than B747), by early 1966 the B747 was proposed, and by January 1970, it was in service. That is less than 8 years from earliest concept to introduction with a development cycle of less tha...

RE: Seattle PI: New A380 Delay Could Be Boeing Boon

I am wondering if Emirates didn't order too many A380s, having the cash to make the deposits on very good terms offered by Airbus at the time. Maybe they figured that the airplane would be so much in demand that any excess planes in their order could be sold/leased to other airlines eager to get the...

RE: 330/350 Visable Difference

The original A350 looked just like the A330 because that's what it was - an updated A330. Over time the design evolved to have a mildly different nose with a 4 pane flight deck window configuration rather than 6 (just like the B787!) and some other recontouring to provide room for a crew rest area. ...

Hang on, the first A350 tried to compete with the B787 and failed partly because it offered a narrower fuselage. So the fix is to compete with the B777 and again offer a narrower fuselage. And on top of that, the timing for a B777 competitor is terrible - airlines have made their decisions and bough...

RE: A350/70 --Randy's "Leap Frog" Analogy

Why is there a CFRP shortage? Demand exceeds supply obviously, but is there a fundamental reason why supply cannot be increased? If we are truly entering an age where all planes will be built from composites, it seems that there are new opportunites for CFRP suppliers and they should be responding.
