RE: Why No Boeing 757-100?

I'm not sure I agree that the -100 models of Boeing airliners weren't successful. Though relatively few 737-100s and 747-100s were built, it's not fair to say they weren't successful; rather they were replaced by improved models.

RE: Will Flying Wing Bypass 787/350?

There are probably ways to solve the technical issues, but I think the main problem is human factors. How do people feel about sitting in a long row of seats with little or no windows.

RE: Aer Lingus Interested In 787!

The comment was made about the size difference between the A350 and the 787. Is the 787 about the same size as the 767? If so, the A350 wouldn't appear to be a direct competitor nearly so much as a it would be an improvement over an already well proven airplane (A330) and would thus fill the future ...

RE: Thunderbirds/Blue Angels: Aircraft Roadmap?

Response to the following: I have to agree with AirRyan on the late-model F-16s for the T-Birds. The only other aircraft the airforce has they could use would be the F-15 and maybe the F/A-22 now that it is comming on line. Some thing tells me though that the Raptor is a bit too spendy to use in tha...

RE: Potential 777 & 787 Operators In South America

I agree that Avianca would be a great candidate for the 787. I'm kind of surprised they don't have the 777.

RE: New Airbus Boss Calls For A320 Output Boost

My guess is that Boeing will be the first with a new narrow body airplane. A friend of mine in Germany told me that Boeings are considered much too heavy and the design is too old. If this reflects what many Europeans in the aviation industry there actually think, it follows that they probably expec...

RE: Boeing 757-100?

It appears Boeing leaves the -100 model number open so that, should they decide to produce a shorter version of the basic airplane, they have an appropriate model number to assign to it. I recall Boeing studied a shorter version of the 757 and I believe they also studied a shorter version of the 777...

RE: JAL Boeing Order - 6 767-300's

It is very surprising to see Japan Airlines, which is a very good airline, ordering the 767 when the 787 isn't that far down the pike. Might it be a favor to Boeing, based on the desire to maintain a long standing good relationship? That's possible, a symbol of support for the company that been the ...

RE: 5 Engine 747!

This one was running, though. Exhaust and heat and everything.

I suspect that the heat you saw was exhaust from the nearest running engine or set of engines. Wind can blow that around under and airplane where you can be misled as to what's really going on.

RE: EVA Airways Orders 10 777-200LR Freighters

I've often wondered why the 767-400 didn't take off as a freighter. It had the operating economics and conversion to a freighter model shouldn't have been that hard. Boeing had developed the 767-300 freighter and it appeared to have sold well.

RE: Japan, France To Jointly Develop Supersonic Plane

Will the airplane run into the same obstacles from U.S. environmentalists as Concorde did? Bear in mind what happened to the Boeing SST many years ago. The obstacles became so great that Boeing wasn't even allowed to build two prototypes for pure research work. I fear Japan and France will run into ...
