  1. F-35 news roundup

    The damage is done, we won’t be buying SHs. You make it sound like a negotiated agreement was worked out. One thing that may happen is the Commerce Department will see the Airbus threat and drop the tariff resulting in the Canadian Parliment cancelling the Airbus acquisition. This would make Boeing breath easier. But Boeing will still have egg on their face.
  2. F-35 news roundup

    Only time will tell, but this was all about survival over a hostile and blatantly unfair tariff imposed by the US commerce department. I see it as win-win. The company was facing an uncertain future after the tariffs were announced. Now they will still build the components going for final assembly at Airbus in the US. The tooling aren’t moving. The final assembly point of those jets is. The Canadian taxpayer doesn’t lose, each jet sold pays back the loan.
  3. F-35 news roundup

    You sure hold a hatred for Bombardier. The new technology is the new design with features that match the current needs of the industry. The R&D is complete. Airbus didn’t pay a penny for it. Regardless of what you think, the C-series is very popular with the commercial aviation industry.
  4. F-35 news roundup

    The A320 is old technology. Airbus just gained new technology for free without paying a penny. They have 50% control. The C-Series is proving to be a very popular choice for airlines, they like the size and efficiency.

    Beauty! Up for sale yet?
  6. F-35 news roundup

    Hillarious , Boeing awoke a sleeping giant. Dumb move by Boeing from Day 1. Boeing didn’t want Airbus involved.
  7. F-35 news roundup

    None of them have a very efficient and economical passenger jet in production.
  8. F-35 news roundup

    Lockheed has stated they can deliver jets well before we can rebuild any junkyard aircraft or take delivery of any new build Super Hornets. Time to announce the F-35 as per the the route and competition we already were part of.
  9. F-35 news roundup

    Problem is politicians never admit to mistake. It is also the only choice. Sticking with our current fleet of aircraft and buying Aussie Hornets is a band-aid fix. Buy the F-35, like all our allies are doing. The F-35 was both the Liberal and Conservative plan from day 1.
  10. Horrifying Landing!

    Little late for that, airports are being built to those standards in the current time frame. It is all about money. I’ve read a lot of articles lately in regards to these changes. The A-320 will always be an awkward aircraft to land in a crosswind.
  11. Horrifying Landing!

    I didn’t say the airbus landing was easily handled. I said airports are being designed now with parallel runways because large aircraft are being designed to handle crosswind landings. Designers of airports want parallel runways for two reasons: 1. More traffic. 2. Less real estate to purchase. There was a time a crosswind landings wasn’t even considered with large aircraft. It was a go around or time to fly to the alternate airport.
  12. Horrifying Landing!

    No, more and more airports are being designed with parallel runways to handle more air traffic in at the same time. Intersecting runways are a thing of the past due to aircraft now being designed to easily handle crosswind landings.
  13. Ultracast and Flightdecs

    Flightdecs can be slow. Ultracast is always fast shipping for me.
  14. ZM Phantoms have everything to put them in the launch configuration.
