Re: Your Most Overdone Songs

Don't Stop Believin' - Journey Cannot. Stand. That. Song. Never have done, it's crap, and yet I feel like the only person on Earth with that opinion. And it's used everywhere. Journey plunged downhill when they got Steve Perry. Listen to their Look Into The Future album and you'll know what I mean....

Re: Washington State Aviation Thread - 2021

How about Renton when 737 production ends 2035 to 2040? RNT is 5 miles from SEA. Further, that's a big assumption Boeing is just going to vacate all Renton facilities. And there is a less than zero chance the locals would approve of commercial service there - the mount of expansion they'd have to d...

I assume (based on TP400) cruising speed will be M .8. Ages ago I did a high capacity, shorter range concept with Heny Lam. https://live.staticflickr.com/4280/34915184323_7d2682c42c_b.jpg M.8 is pretty good, what would be cruise altitude? Higher = less noisy to those on the ground
