Qatar Airways To Operate First A350-1000 On Doha-London Route Commented on: 30 weeks ago (February 23, 2018)

Unless I've completely got the wrong end of the stick, surely MTOW cannot be meaningfully compared when one aircraft is made from aluminium and the other from CF? By all accounts the A350 airframe...

Airbus Stops Taking PW1100G Engines Commented on: 32 weeks ago (February 10, 2018)

It's certainly not terrific news.

Allow me to indulge in some wild speculation. How long before Airbus ask RR to buy P&W and sort it out properly? How long before GE buy P&W? How...

Falcon Heavy Nails Debut Test Flight Commented on: 32 weeks ago (February 7, 2018)

Attaining the wrong orbit isn't exactly good PR so far as serious, hard-nosed payload owners are concerned. For a payload that needs Falcon Heavy, the payload itself is going to be enormously...

Will USAF Actually Buy A Light Attack Aircraft This Time? Commented on: 32 weeks ago (February 7, 2018)

I think that the whole idea of a separate air force is wrong for the current climate. Most of what air forces like to do (fast whizzy jets, strategic bombers, etc) simply aren't needed that much...

Boeing 777X Engine Flight Test Facing Delay Commented on: 33 weeks ago (February 3, 2018)

I don't think it's a matter of strengthening the VSVs themselves, the article reports that it is a case of changing the levers that move them.

It's interesting to note that RR's 3 spool...

Oops, Wrong Airport: It’s More Than Embarrassing, It’s Dangerous Commented on: 34 weeks ago (January 24, 2018)

Many years ago I was at the Farnborough airshow, with a B52 scheduled to do a display. It flew all the way from, I think Louisana, just for the display, and was going to fly all the way back....

USAF Could Start Re-engining First Two B-52s By 2022 Commented on: 39 weeks ago (December 22, 2017)

Why? The B52 has been in constant use for a very long time, being very useful in the various entanglements in the Middle East. For the past couple of decades it has been quite clear that what's...

Rolls Marks Trent And Advance Milestones Commented on: 42 weeks ago (November 29, 2017)

@Spectre49,

>At least they are going in the right direction with the ultra.
>Its a 2.5 shaft engine. Ergo, GE was right, simpler is better.

Er, RR have previously said on...

Japan Refines Design For Indigenous Future Fighter Commented on: 42 weeks ago (November 28, 2017)

Japan and the U.K. already have a treaty arrangement to examine whether a joint fighter development would work for both countries. In fact on the quiet (though still public info) there's been a...

Industry Closely Watching Airbus/Bombardier C Series Integration Commented on: 43 weeks ago (November 23, 2017)

>The CS500 would compete too directly with the A320neo...

...which isn't selling as well as the A321neo (the one everyone wants seemingly). Airbus seem to be pragmatic enough to ditch...
