Beech/Textron Merger Complete

Textron has announced that the Beechcraft deal is complete, and has formed a new division of Cessna, Beech, and Hawker called Textron Aviation. Naturally, it's a hot topic of discussion here in Wichita. Too bad they couldn't give a nod to history and call the new entity Travel Air (Curtiss-Wright st...

RE: MH370 Malaysia Airlines B772 Missing Enroute KUL-PEK Part 13

For what it's worth, it's about 4000 miles to Iran from Malaysia, avoiding radar. With a fairly full fuel load, that's not even remotely difficult.

RE: MH370 Malaysia Airlines B772 Missing Enroute KUL-PEK Part 13

If the plane crossed the Malaysian peninsula and got over the straits of Malacca, It's a fairly straight shot over the Indian Ocean far from anyone's radar, and into Iran. Guessing that if the plane is intact, it's in a hangar on an Iranian military base somewhere getting a paint job to match a midd...
