Re: Julian Assange Rape Investigation Is Dropped in Sweden

All the gutless wonder has to do is leave the embassy he chose to hide in. Are you sure your opinion in this matter isn't clouded by your personal opinion about this man? I think Assange has gone to far with WikiLeaks, so I don't feel to much sympathy for him. On the other hand, I think the UK shou...

Re: Why has the success of the A321 and 739 only been recent?

If you look at the payload range graphs of the 739Max you see that if you load it to the MZFW of the 738Max, you can fly an extra 500nm, carrying the same payload, because you can top off the tanks and still stay within the MTOW. I expect the increased MTOW of the 9 will contributes somewhat to a s...
