Re: EL AL 787s cost $60M each? Typo surely??

The Boeing that pulled the CSeries shenanigans and the KC-46 shenanigans is entirely capable of selling these planes at 60 million dollars apiece to a foreign carrier. I'll go one step further and say these planes were probably financed through the export-import bank IE the US taxpayers all in the ...

Re: SZG (salzburg, austria) 10/28 - crosswind approach, one-side hard landing, go-around

10 feet lower could have been tragedy, congratulating the pilots is premature to me it looks as if they were the cause of too much correction at the last minute at too low an altitude. I'd like to know the total time of both pilots in the cockpit, is the right seat a cadet position?

Re: Lufthansa Cargo offloaded two MD-11Fs and see revenues grow by 18% so far in 2017

With a fleet approaching 20 years it is about time to order a bunch of 777F’s Good site for overview: https://www.lh-taufnamen.de/cargo/ Would not be surprised to see them order 10, and 5 options within the next couple of years.
