RE: Schiphol Amsterdam - Airport Or Shopping Center?

You should see Singapore airport. Especially T1. My dad described it as a big shopping mall rather than an airport.

RE: Any Near Future Expansion Of CDG?

Ah, I do agree that T1 is pretty old, and needs renovation. (one of the reasons ADP dumps all the foreign airlines there). There is a terminal 3 at <acronym title="Paris - Charles de Gaulle (Roissy) (CDG / LFPG), France">CDG</acronym>??? Wow, I must be behind. Can some one point out to me where it is?

RE: AF 358, A Crash Or A Simple Accident?

A crash is when an aircraft is written off, or damaged beyond repair. For example, this <acronym title="Air France">AF</acronym> crash and the Saudi 747 crash posted earlier. An Accident is something considered repairable. For example, the 747 that went into the water at Kaitak, or the A320 which hi...

RE: Parallel Runway Ops

SFO was built ages ago. But now, any new airport can't have two parallel runways so close, or even on the same airfield.

Whats up with all this? Why can't the airline invest in a more real fleet of Airbus and/or Boeing aircraft?

Where Will Airbus Build The A350?

Since the old 757 line is free, Boeing will use it to build the 787. But where will Airbus build the A350? They currently have no free assembly line and the A300/A310 facility is too small. Thanks for the thoughts. P.S. And anyone know what will happen to the old McDonnell Douglas Md11 and 717 facil...

Where Are The A380 Hangers?

With everyone talking about airports upgrading terminals, gates, taxiways, and runways for the new jumbo, I was wondering if any existing hangars can fit an A380, and if not, what are airlines doing about maintenance? All I know so far, is that Lufthansa will have a new hangar in Frankfurt. Any more?

Hey everyone! Though I have been visiting a-net for years, its my first day as an A-net member! Well, to the topic... Why do the main gears on jetliners tilt? And why do some tilt in front, some in the back, and some not at all? Main gears tilting forward... <a href="http://www.airliners.net/open.fi...
