I am not sure of the hold over time allowed which is fine if it stored at the correct temps.

Here me out here, but what if this ends up being the official reveal of the SR-72? The military worked closely with the filmmakers on both films, and this would certainly be a helluva reveal!

Question from a hobbyist with no industry knowledge. How does something like bushfires and the smoke & haze affect aircraft, such as engines or other sensitive parts?

Interesting it didn't have a cross bleed. doing some reading on the website mentioned above also shows that anti-ice was mostly electric, and not bleed air.

We will have to wait for AI whose first applications will be to replace the high end cost of all the programmers and high paying tech jobs.
Running costs will be about $200 per flight hour versus $1,000 for a turboprop, though the model will be slower than some conventional craft So if we are talking a 9 seat at $200 per flight hour Alice and a 70+ seat ATR72 at $1000 per flight hour.

Starlionblue, you'll know the answer to this: how does the IFE system "know" what the destination city is?

I don’t like the guy but let’s hope for a quick recovery. Does anyone know how long a heart stent will keep you bed ridden?

Even with external power, you need the APU for engine start because you need bleed air to power the starter. So the APU is still used, both on engine start and on arrival.
