If a pilot tries a stunt on a runway with 200mm water on top, yeah then it is clearly not Boeings or the FAAs fault. That's as may be, but the press will still tear Boeing to shreds, along with the FAA, and also manage to blame it on Trump if he is in office when the incident takes place. Why? Beca...Jump to post

A rumor i am trying to start is that the 737 MAX12 is in the works. It will be 24 feet longer, and use the same landing gear, They can do this because runways are being built with a trench down the middle. Doing so will allow for a decent angle of attack at rotation, and also for a good flare angle ...Jump to post

There has been much discussion about the eventual and possible discontinuance of the Boeing 747 freighter, which has a nose that can be raised for loading long cargo. My question is: would it be feasible to bring back the "swing-tail", as found, for example, on the Canadair CL-44, thus fil...Jump to post

Can't wait to try the CS100! Not to be pedantic, but the CS100 name was just the marketing name of the BD-500-1A10; and it's now the A220-100.

As a follow up to this it's my understanding that SWA will take delivery of their 737MAX and then park them until the Fall time period.
