Considering RR has been the engine choice for all of EKs recent A380s and all of BAs A380s, this could be very good news for RR and if an order is signed then we might see a potential PIP.Jump to post
Instead of debating where and why they landed shouldn't we be focusing on the fact that there was an engine failure and the flight ended with no other events?Jump to post
Delta: Doesn't Ever Leave The Airport
I wonder if they deduct points due to weather or airport related issues, or is it just overall time management?
I'm really liking the black mask across all Airbus aircraft! An A380 with a black window frame would be cool.Jump to post

I've always wondered why Australia has never housed any aircraft manufacturing plants. Sure, we are in a remote location but we have sh*t tones of space and rather good political relationships with a lot of other countries.

Do we have a news source?Jump to post
Looks absolutely amazing. Of course living in Australia means I'll probably never see it in person but hey, congrats to Airbus for impressing me with something on a screen XD .
Will the plan on using the extra range of the A330 to open up more factories around the place?
Great news! I'm really hoping they locate something and I have a feeling they will. A company that has secured a deal like that will do anything to find it.Jump to post
Hi everyone! Happy new year and all that stuff.

Hi everyone! Merry Christmas! I haven't heard much about the Qantas A320neo order for JStar and Virgin's 737 MAX order. Do we know when and if these aircraft are going to be delivered? And has there been any news on Qantas decision between the MAX and the NEO. I understand Qantas isn't in the need t...Jump to post
Qantas’ 707-138B was a shotened version of the standard 707-100 which gave it longer range. Not quite: everyone else's were a longer version that they did because of Pan Am: http://www.adastron.com/707/qantas/138-length.htm I think the first guy was right. The 707-138 was a shortened version of the...Jump to post
Gday everyone! I was looking back at some of my old times with Ansett Australia and it got me thinking: What would the airline look like today?

Wouldn't it be funny if an airline ordered the A350 asking for the black eyeliner to be removed.Jump to post

Two proposed EASA ADs for A350 one relating to cargo door surround corrosion and another re stabiliser and fuselage sealants. Clearly some thorough mx going on by AB and lead operators. As the aircraft clocks up the hours no doubt a few more will materialise. However, over last couple of years she ...Jump to post

Not sure why the crew is being faulted here, sounds like they did the right thing in returning to AKL However there certainly was an issue with electrical redundancy here, no 787 expert but I would think the other engine driven generator(s) and or the APU generator should have picked up the load Th...Jump to post
Possibly an unknown issue with the 787. This incident makes it look like there was no electrical transfer. I've been on an aircraft with an engine failure and the the power operated as it should.

Is this thing back in the air?Jump to post
This thread was started the other day.
I wonder if this issue will affect the A350? I was thinking same thing. Both the Trent XWB and Trent 7000 are extremely similar to the Trent 1000. So far engine reliability for the A350 has been incredible. Hopefully this doesn't change or RR could be in a serious pickle. Airbus would also suffer b...Jump to post
Will there be a few days/weeks of familiarization when Qatar's -1000 gets delivered or will it proceed into service immediately?Jump to post
Don't trust passengers accounts of power "going out" as it's not what happens. The pilots purposely turn off non essential power draws during a shutdown to confirm the single engine is doing its job. Then power is restored to some systems. Does the 787 have a RAT? Not familiar with aircra...Jump to post

I only posted it because the Trent 1000 engines have been having issues of late. I suppose it could be turned into a discussion whether the Trent 1000 TEN will be solid fix.Jump to post
I think that Airbus just needs to remind them that they have A380 orders waiting to be delivered. I guess you missed AJ's recent comments: Qantas chief executive Alan Joyce has joked that he would have to be "drunk" to order any additional Airbus A380s, and also indicated that the airline...Jump to post
