RE: United Nations Mi-2

Hi,

I do but unfortunately don't know anything about that bird. Tried to see what country it may have belonged to, (we don't have our own aircraft), looks like the old Yugoslavia, but I may be wrong.

Regards.

Hi, Sorry, I'm a bit confused. Why does Airbus need to cut workers when their backlog is at an all-time high and they want to increase production? How is production going to increase with less workers? Also, what are the advantages of selling factories and/or transfer jobs at this time? Wouldn't the...

Hi CV990, If memory serves me right I think that the 3 a/c were used for domestic services, although it is quite possible that at some point they may have gone as far as Santiago, Rio, maybe Asuncion.

Lade Boeing 707

First post... My favorite commercial jetliner has always been the Boeing 707, (closely followed by the D.H. Comet). Unfortunately, my last flight on one was in 1980. As their number dwindled and disappeared so did the chances of flying in them; however, and to my great delight, my son was able to fl...
