Whatever they design will have to pass ‘the Hudson Test’ and that will be a long-long time. Or do people think the bar should be set lower?

Seems strange to read that a Land Rover doesn’t fit in a -130. I can remember a Land Rover (90) fitting in a C47!

Proper science

I’m still waiting for someone to create a glass tank with 0.004% CO2 and one with 0.003% CO2 and see how much hotter one gets than the other!

Hear hear

I couldn’t say it better myself. A protest is waving a Placard with your message. Impacting the lives of 100,000s just going about their daily lives is the use of force and should be treated as such.

Alternatively!

Or here is a revolutionary thought! Rather use the power used for the air pumps to drive a propellor fitted on the nose. Steady state speed, so should be more efficient.

Flaps Downwind?

Hopefully we have now done the ‘7700’ bit to death and can focus on why an aircraft with a reported Flap problem would opt for a downwind landing! Doesn’t seem the natural choice.

Do as I say not as I do!

The best example of all time is Obama burning 300 tonnes of aviation fuel, just to go to Paris for the day to sign the Climate Change Accord.
You couldn't make it up!
