One of them seems to have an engine missing. Where did you this? Are there any better pictures? Saw two stored Uni-Top Airlines B747-200 in Wuhan, we passed them while taxiing to the terminal.

R.I.P. nose gear wheel. I feel sorry for your partner and hope he/she will find a way to live with this kind of loss.

I wonder/hope with airbus doing the 380 reconfigure if there is a chance some of the 380 plus changes will be available as a retrofit by the time the mods start. QF roo on 380 workers would look phenomenal- not to mention be handy for the long haul routes, especially DFW and LAX! Airbus have held t...Jump to post
Sorry, I am not familiar with that region. What is the reason for this growth? I assume it's not or not only related to oil industry? AUS is not an oil town. But it does have a VERY healthy mix of high-yield and/or high-capacity generating sources. ⋅ It's a huge college-town, with one of ...Jump to post
IMO, if AUS had its master plan in place today, possibly doubling the gate count (I've seen several models), I think they would be filled quickly. The growth there is just nuts.

The 330 NEO was just an airbus insurance policy in case 350 had the same development problems as 787 Sorry, but this sounds like "revisionist history" to me. I was here on a.net throughout all the discussions as the A330neo was being formulated, and I can't even recall the "insurance...Jump to post
We had a thread about China's plan to construct hundreds of additional airports... Not just they plan to construct 100 new airports, they are going to construct that much airport at the same time.

What I had read previously, is that places large enough to get an airport had enough demand for jets, and airports just weren't built when there is only demand for props. There are still only about 200 airports in China although they are keep popping up new airports. But generally those are still u...Jump to post
Hello, I had already written my contribution to the other thread that has been locked. So I thought it would be worthwhile to start a new thread to cover this aspect. There is something unique about China's domestic aviation: the lack of turboprops. Yes, sometimes you see a MA 60 but that's all. No ...Jump to post
Amazing, sounds like a perfect success story. Open new route with the B787, upgrade once the demand allows to do so... Simply unreal. I'm at a loss for words. Next, BA will upgauge AUS to A380. There's no A380 capable dual level gate at AUS. BA could add a frequency if the 747 isn't enough capacity....Jump to post

how many times most people had to fly before their first flight on these two very common planes.

Cheatlines were a popular design motif from an era where airline liveries, and the methods used to mask off and paint the aircraft, were designed and made entirely by hand, without the aid of a computer.

The 78K is a handsome piece of engineering, whereas the 773ER has all the aesthetics of a bread van. It's just ugly. It is one aircraft I have never liked the look of. I second your opinion.

If the A380 Plus will be launched there, I would expect IAG to be a major launch customer. A launch for EK only is unlikly to happen. Most A380 Plus orders will be conversions of existing A380 orders already in the books. Airbus will show a presentation how they could bump up the range of the A350....Jump to post
They know that the A380 is perfect for them and they officially told this to the press. They did? Um... when, and in what venue? I cannot find a link that quickly but Joerg is correct. BA's Walsh once said they are happy with the A380 and they could use more of them. Again, where did that airline s...Jump to post
I think EK will order a few of those 380 Plus for the times when they start to phase out their oldest ones. The A380s EK has already on order will replace the oldest ones.

When I worked in Bucharest (2006 until 2009) I often saw a Vision Air B767 at OTP. My understanding was that they were flying there for the US Military.
