  1. Will Boeing Give a Damn?

    Boeing will not "Give a Damn". Eighteen F-18E/F's sold to Canada means nothing. A true leap of technology, which the "C" series is, will obsolete the 737. This is a serious, possibly lethal threat to their narrowbody market, especially if the CS500 gets launched. I expect this to get much nastier.
  2. I believe that Boeing and Airbus now both realize that they made the same mistake that Boeing made at the time of Airbus' infancy in leaving a gaping hole in the market. Much as I hate the management at Bombardier they've created a great aircraft t that could lay the boots to both the B-737 and A-320 product lines and they know it. Whether Trudeau has the people in place to protect this remains to be seen. I also believe that an order for a fighter built in Europe would be another shot across the bow to the US.
  3. I've been following this fairly closely being a bit of a WW2 nerd. I like that it's a P-51 that still looks like a P-51. Congrats to Steve Hinton Jr. Takes cajones to push a 70 year old airplane like that.

    Actually it wasTAP. A319. Seat pitch was worse than anything I've seen in Canada but the inflight service was excellent!
  5. BA to launch LGW-YYZ

    Well, after pushing 2 minutes early and arriving almost 40 minutes early. I gotta say I was pleasantly surprised! Seats were much more comfortable than the 737, wifi strength was good and the F/A's were a good group.

    Thanks Jeff!

    Thanks Malcolm, I'm in 10K

    Well, I'm flying the 767 for the first time this evening, I guess I'll see if it's all that.

    WJ flies YYZ-LGW.
  11. Seattle MOF B52 Repaint

    Thanks BD. They're such historic aircraft and it's great to see them preserved!
  12. Seattle MOF B52 Repaint

    Any idea where they're going to put it? The Museum of Flight is at Boeing Field and unless the plan is to drag it down I-5 it'll have to stay at Paine Field. Maybe a one time flight to Boeing Field like they did with the first B-727 a few years ago.

    Don't make me come over there, mister!
  14. Seattle MOF B52 Repaint

    I spent the last few months working at Paine Field and I would see it everyday. This is a pic I took last December before they (obviously) started the resto.

    If I ignored every topic you posted in there'd be nothing for me to see. How about you try to exercise a modicum of self control and stop treating this place as your own personal pulpit that you think you hold court in? if I'm wrong there'll be a flood of people rushing to your defence. I guess we'll see. As for your question, I don't know. I could find out but I don't really care and really not interested in letting you know anyway.
