Cool

Its certainly not the first Boeing the Chinese military have as in 2000 the Chinese air force purchased 10 Boeing 737-300's (currently being used as military transports)through China United Airlines. China United Airlines (CUA) is China's version of Air America. Boeing or Airbus I don't really care, any Western aircraft is better than some of the clangers flying around Chinese airspace.

KIFIS - Suggest you read the P3 pilot's transcripts ref the Hainan Is incident before passing judgment there, touchy subject for many people. Also you can't blame the Chinese for wanting to buy the Boeing as it was indirectly a great compliment for the US (no I'm not a US citizen), entrusting the safety of the countries leaders to US technology. And seriously you have to ask yourself even if sometimes the US can do some pretty Dilbert things (i.e was that meters or was that feet, oops send another mars lander...) they are pretty s..t hot when it comes to techo stuff and wouldn't have bungled the job as bad as that. On the other hand I work daily side by side with some of China's "finest" technicians and believe me that handiwork on the 767 reminds me of what I see over here sometimes.

Bottom line? you seem to be baiting folk with your thread(s) and people are rising to the fly as well by the look of it.

Food for thought did you know that all of the plastic Xmas trees that grace the halls of the Whitehouse are made in China about 30kms from Hong Kong? wonder if they hum when they are turned on.......

KIFIS has distiguished himself in a number of threads by his blind singleminded dedication to the Chinese cause. His anti-US and pro-Chinese stance is automatic and bears no rational relationship to the particular circumstance.

I can understand the anti-US sentiments. However, in this case, the Chinese government has kept a relatively low profile in the diplomatic front. It seems the emphasis here is on the investigation of the Chinese officials who arranged the deal for possible corruption. China is not known to appease the US. If they don't make too much a fuss, I don't know why some of you should.

Exclamation

Anyway, it's all finished. China's government has been given the jet to Air China as a passenger jet.

By the way, I totally disagree with some people who said that Chinese people are still living in 12th century or something like that, although it is true that a lot places in China are now still un-developed, but it is also true that China's government has been tried hard to improve their people's living standard.

Additionally, if you have been to some cities like Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Guangzhou etc, you will see that a lot of western countries are nowhere better than those Chinese cities I've just mentioned.

Thomas Doubting, before you say something, please make sure you clearly know what you are talking about and also the truth.

In fact, CARNOC English Forum officially powered by Infopop Corporation, there is nothing to do with PPRuNe and they are totally different forums. If you think their looking are similar, there are other thousands of forums are using Infopop BBS products worldwide.

By the way, as I know, this forum is also using Infopop system! (If I'm incorrect, please correct me)

Another thing is that I'm not lingam from CARNOC, but I'm another administrator from CARNOC.
