  1. Simple and maintenance friendly yes. Archaic and non integrated technology full of workarounds also yes. It could be twice the plane it is with a clean slate system redesign
  2. honestly....for the most part you get what you pay for
  3. yeah no white anglo saxon protestant EVER whipped or beat his kids. Delusional
  4. are we sure that's not a flight test scenario. The water ingestion test is a requirement for certification.
  5. You pilot types only see the shiny bits. Its the stuff under the floor that makes it work that counts adn in that arena the Bus far out weights the 37. The 37 is a mish mash shoveled into a box and shaken vigorously. the 37 is past it prime unless a full systems redesign is done on it. It will never catch up. That being said. the bean counters do not care
  6. When I worked flight test in Witchita on the original Global Express aircraft, it also exceeded Mach 1. We always knew when they did it because they would lose the lav service door.
  7. looking under the hood I would take a 320 over a 737 any day. The systems integration on the 737 is a mess of old and really old technology and now they are attempting to ADD new technology. Sure it's a workhorse but it no longer tried and true. Its a mess. the 320 is designed with the systems integration at the forefront and it works. It IS now the tried and true.
  8. I believe hitting you in the foot with a big rock will cure your headache. Should I do it? you cant prescribe meds based on beliefs. you need the science and doctors do NOT have that in theri repertoir
  9. Based on the Russian performance in Ukraine to date, I have my doubts that any threat of nuclear attack is reliable. They have commited fully 75% of their standing military to Ukraine and have not performed as well as one would think. Who is to say that Nukes and Hypersonic Missiles are not just empty threats because no one has been maintaining the the munitions. All of the money was funnelled to the Oligarchs. I believe nothing from Russia
  10. Watched it. nothing at all surprising there. Profit over innovation and safety.
  11. Boeing has sidestepped a lot of certification requirements in their history. The 747-400 kept the same certification (with amendments) as the -200 even though the wing was different. This shortened the certification process. The main technicality was not renumbering the slats. Thats why you have a 1A and not fully renumbered. Technicalities. The 737 has been redesigned so many time but always retains enough of the predecessor to be the same type for certification purposes. While this make development fast and cheap, it does nothing to enhance safety, comfort and efficiency. It is stagnating advancement and letting Airbus and others leap out ahead of the former king.
  12. The 727 and the 737 share the same cockpit section. My point was initially that they are attempting to make 1060s technology integrate with 2000 technology and it has many issue. From a pilot and backend perspective its all bright lights and shiny new things but under the skin is is a nightmare of independent systems trying to work together. Does it work? Sure. is it efficient or reliable? not really. Does it measure up to the competition? not by a longshot.
  13. I still do not see how blood thinners would have any effect on a Virus. If that were the case chew a few asprin a day
