some say possibly connected to a lightning strike though I don’t understand how that could be.

I think Google would do well to continue using names that have a more worldwide presence. I don't think Turtle Pie is going to be that well known in Europe. How about Toblerone? Even Tootsie Roll has been heard of here. Also... maybe stick to shorter names. Like Rolo instead of Red Velvet Cake. Tob...Jump to post

Yea Atlanta isn't a tourist city but it is known for far more than its airport, I would say. Is it really though? I am sure that if you are from the USA, or North America in general, you might know a bit more of Atlanta since it is a state capital. But for those outside North America? Some might kn...Jump to post
it is extremely rare to have a crash where the black boxes are not found or damanged beyond use. Having a 24h data stream would be prohibitively expensive for what is essentially a very rare occurance. But what I have been wondering is, why not couple such a stream with the flight envelope protectio...Jump to post
It makes perfect sense that the healthcare provided by the government (medicare, medicaid, veteran care) is more expensive. And the reason is not simply because government is inherently inefficient. If that were the case then the healthcare systems all over Europe would have collapsed ages ago. The ...Jump to post
Many of these devices are SHARED across manufacturers, so it's not like this is necessarily Pratt's issue to resolve in the first place.

Le Bourget has a larger and better collection.

It’s too early to decide. Going on the pilot only, all I can say it’s a lot better then TNG’s Encounter at Farpoint.

I looked at the article I saw no reference to carrying an extra 90 minutes of fuel, maybe they have removed it.

In conditions like this we would carry alternates like MNL, BKK and TPE plus an hours holding fuel.

With the benefit of hindsight it would probably have been better to develop a 70-110 seat regional jet family. There have been a lot of sales in that market.

The SSJ100 is the sweet spot for their operations so maybe a larger variant would not work for them. Their charter operations for SN are to replace c.100 seat aircraft, and same for their own flying.

2. The US and allied nations have built more than 4,000 F-16's since 1974.
