RE: Pentagon Downgrades F-35 Specs

Well F-18 Super Hronet, with all it problems, at least stayed reasonably within time and budget. P-8 does look okay as well.

RE: FAA Grounds 787 Part 4

Thank you for many informative replies. I am sorry I got many facts wrong (like believing there are other battery packs in the rack). Looking into the presented facts about the incident, I now believe that the second incident is the one that forced the FAA to act, as the flammable liquid escaped the...

RE: FAA Grounds 787 Part 3

Anybody who callas the FAA morons for that grounding is a moron. An in-flight fire which can not be put down by any means available on the plane is a huge risk.

Fire protection against a burning li battery is moot anyway. Either the containment keeps the fire under control or not. You would need to cover the battery in dirt or maybe some long lasting foam to extinguish the flames. Both options are not possible for a plane.

RE: New Terms - For Photographers - Part II

I am sure a.net and DM will fix this. A.net has done so much for our hobby, that it would be sad to see the site getting into trouble.
