I don't own this space under my name. I should have leased it while I still could

Running a cross over production line presented certain issues, not all of which were resolved.

For sale, fully fitted aircraft cockpit for conversion to flight SIM use.

For sale, tail plane empenage, many uses, apply Scroggs Aerospace.

In this case, First Class really does arrive before the rest of the yobboes. They are in a different time zone.

And of course with this configuration we have the armoured door between first class and cattle.

Calm down, everybody. These two planes were a good mile apart. There's a small one quite close, and a large one a mile behind it and a bit higher. The small one has a sky-coloured fin.

I've heard of brown nosing in the airline industry, but this is ridiculous!

Air Miles foray into the long haul market lifts off for first time. The next stage to a mile long aircraft is expected next April.

Boeing were desperate to sell large aircraft to an airline whose CEO had said they would by widebodies "over his dead body".

During the industry slump the sales department figured out how to move more units.

We set it up for "just in time" manufacturing, but someone misread the timetables, and wing and fuselage assemblies turned up too often. We didn't have the storage space, so............

You know those shows on tv, where after the ad break, they repeat most of what happened prior before moving on? Unfortunately, we hired one of those producers to make our assembly line training videos.

Well the Captain and the stewardess are already in the mile high club, so they are trying for the mile long version!

I've flown a lot of commercial long-haul, but this is getting silly.
