On a side note, a lot of the lectures about "mass killings" seem to come from Germans on this forum. Not really sure you guys should be doing any lecturing on the topic. Quite the contrary. We know about it from our past. ... and we've gone beyond that. So you could learn from German expe...Jump to post

It took two years before the US took an interest in the problems of Hitler in Europe. Hitler was Times Man of the Year in 1938.

If Harvey W was always known as a bad one then why did the liberals in Hollywood adore him and promote him? Even those who lecture us on a wide range of topics held him up as a role model knowing full well that young females were allowing themselves to be abused just to break into the industry.

That's really unfortunate, damn.

I have a hunch a good 80% of us would pass the final hours logged in to a.net, arguing over whether Airbus was better than Boeing, and betting how quickly Delta could get it's ops back up & running again after the "big bang". ja, ja, ja, ja,ja ,ja ... :-) how would the "reborn C&...Jump to post
I'm not convinced either society has found a way to identify its unstable members and protect the public. dumb objective. What you do is reduce the pressure that breaks people.

With all due respect this thread is about Airbus potentially increasing their production rate and some concerns lessors have regarding a bubble.

It isn’t most orders will be cancelled, deferred, etc. The reality is that Airbus has had a 17% cancellation rate over the past three years when looking at net in year of cancellation.

I think countries like in Eastern Europe where guns are practically illegal should set an example to the US. Eastern Europe is not an example to follow.

I try not to discuss politics at work.

In retrospect, there probably should have been more workplace badgering going on in 1930s Germany. Just like in the US today that was more introduced top down than anything else. First there was derision for the "Braune Horden" then percention wise it was "suddenly" no longer wi...Jump to post
You also make a lot less money and have less opportunity. You can have your 4 day work week. I will take the USA over your model any day.

I don't think this assumption holds much water given that the 779 has at least 5% improvements in both SFC and L/D, the only way for such a figure to pan out would be for the 779 to be significantly heavier than the 77W at takeoff, which would imply something like a 10% OEW delta between the 779 an...Jump to post

Well the boom is where the shock cone ( initially rather flat gaining conicity with speed )
intersects the ground ( resp. the listener.
My guess would be that FH shock cone never touches populated areas.
the initial ascend is vertical and only later turning slowly towards horizontal.
Seeing that A320 so low without slats and flaps is a bit concerning ! This is clearly photoshopped! :) Wouldnt the Flight control software have to be modified in the real world for the A320 to be able to do this sort of thing? Why? Higher speed flight in ground proximity. no high lift needed. ( Loo...Jump to post
Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems (subjectively) to me like new MAXes are flying out the doors (pardon the pun). Could part of Boeing's motivation for keeping an elderly design alive this long with assorted updates is that the marginal cost increase for producing a new version is virtua...Jump to post
I check R-24 daily and the aircraft has not yet returned to service. Presume final repairs are still ongoing?

The A300 is roughly 70% of the mto weight of the A332 yet is nearly 90% of the capacity. This would definitely match the lean and mean definition so it would not be a hard target for Boeing to make what would be a carbon A300 and A310. A330-500 resp A330-100 was to be a A300-600 size shrink of the ...Jump to post
