How many A380s are being scrapped now? So far two of them: MSN 003 and 005, both ex SQ and belonging, ehhhm, I mean the remaining parts, to Dr. Peters Group: https://www.airliners.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1411791&start=200 MSN 040 seems to be the next candidate: https://www.airliners.net/forum...Jump to post

Anyway: let's get this put clearly once and for all, shall we? The EU isn't going away anytime soon and the UK is definitely out, so a from now the EU is a foreign entity and a very important one too for the UK if I may add as it is their single most important trading partner for decades to come: a...Jump to post
Nexit is trending on twitter. Support is growing and rightly so. I didn’t follow the discussion as I should have. So my apologies but may I ask why you openly promote the disintegration of the EU?

Furthermore, in that video, in which she tears Trump’s speech into pieces (… she seems to be too weak to make it in one go, IIRC she had to do it three times…), she looks to me as if she has a nervous disease.

I am really concerned about this era of populism we are living in. It seems as if history is repeating itself. I am also concerned that people forget about the cruelty of war. New generations are no longer emotionally connected to let’s say WW II and there are discussions in Germany to reduce the hi...Jump to post
As that picture is 2 years old, any idea if they got the plane now or 2 years ago as the OP mentioned they got it now. They never took that frame.

Passengers are really concerned and really aware - and that includes the average person. Overheard this conversation in my holiday flight from CGN to LPA on Corendon flight XR 1304 on 1.1.2020 (Corendon has ordered the MAX): „honey, don’t worry this [737-800] is not one of the bad ones.“ .

Does anybody know what LH is doing with their widebodies they usually fly to China, both from Frankfurt and from Munich?
Have they stored any aircraft (... the local planespotters are not that active right now due to the suboptimal weather...)?

Well the cost is already low. If parting is worth 19 millions, then the aircraft is basically worth 19 millions. 19 millions is what they sold as spare parts SO FAR. It’s not yet completed. The parts sales process expected to take two years. I am not saying they will reach the 70 millions target bu...Jump to post
Video of this accident has been put up on YouTube.

Or is it a one-off situation because of the unique characteristics of Trump? This is actually quite funny if you think about it.

Who knew cup holders could be so controversial and rile up so much emotion.

Read an article some time ago, written by an American automotive design consultant. He related the time he was working with engineers from Mercedes.

Interesting speech from Mr Farage.
Just a quick question. Why do the Continental Europeans on this endlessly tedious thread seem to care so much? At the end of the day the people most affected by this will be the British, it's not going to affect the rest of the EU past importers and exporters. Why care so much? What would you do if...Jump to post

11 years since EIS of the type, AF is the first airline to reduce the numbers of A380's.

Trump is using the teleprompter, of course. But I never saw him watching so rigidly onto the screen as in his yesterday’s speech. For „the deal of the century“ you would have expected a free speech.
Anyhow, as he correctly defined it, it’s just a „vision“.
It’s already on his Wikipedia page, of course somehow vague: On January 28, 2020, Russian intelligence sources claimed that D'Andrea was among those killed in the downing of the U.S. air force plane. As of 28 January 2020, United States sources had yet to confirm this information. The U.S. den...Jump to post

Not an expert, of course, but as mentioned by JetBuddy, the wreckage does not look like the aircraft was shot down. Looks as if it landed on its belly and caught fire.
