Sounds like the A321 NEO LR with the fourth fuel tank
Their marketing team perhaps should call it A321 NEO TANKER.
I was always wondering why don't they simply extend DUB primary runway 10/28 towards the West direction? I've been there ages ago, but looking at satellite images there's just nothing there except some small secondary road and empty fields. Just perfect for the extension. But is there a real need?Jump to post
I don't know anything about C919, but I tend to think MC-21 has a chance. Russians learned a lot from the SSJ100 program. And the market for A321 type of aircraft is there. Even basic specs of MC-21 are pretty good and at least Russian Wikipedia (yep, not the best source, I know) mentions further -4...Jump to post
The Soviet Union was always a very capable plane maker however they tended to build commercial air transport from a military view. Their airliners tended to be civilian versions of military models or hopeful military models. The aircraft they developed were generally solid, too solid in many cases....Jump to post
There are some rumors in Russian forums regarding IL-96-400M - an updated and stretched IL-96-300. But it's too early to say anything at this moment. Who knows? MS-21 (mid range) is performing now it's test flights and IL-114 is also being considered for mass productions. As for the reasons why the...Jump to post

Thanks for the replies, everyone, especially on historical aspects. As much I like the looks and 3-engine design of the MD-11, I think the A343 is amazing, despite the fact that it was initially designed with other engines in mind. I heard about proposed MD-11 stretching. Very interesting. I also te...Jump to post
I second Luiz Monteiro for IR training. Easy to understand and use if you need Nav instrument part sorted.
For more complexity and extra realism I would suggest X-plane 11 or 10. But bear in mind - flight sims are very very complex piece of software and takes time to learn.
Hi folks, This possibly has been discussed already, but I haven't found the answer. This question arose after reading few very interesting threads which compared A343 and B772 fuel consumption and overall operational costs. To my surprise, it appears that A343 burns very similar or even less amount ...Jump to post
I've read the French language article. It has nothing to do with A340-300 performance, and does not specify what was the technical issue. While A343 can look a bit "lazy" during the climb, compared to B757, it has more potential power in case of an engine failure, which is always taken int...Jump to post
How does ATR 72-600 compares to Fokker 50? I heard many pilots liked Fokker for it's reliability and ease in piloting. As a passenger I find Fokker really quiet.Jump to post
