A La Carte (February 22)

Thanks for bearing with me through an article-less week. I hope to have some fresh content next week. But for now, I continue with the daily A La Carte. Westminster Books has deals on books for parents and grandparents. From Mars Hill to Harvest: Hope for a Wounded Church CT reports on recent events at Harvest Bible Chapel. “ Harvest numbers around 12,000 members across seven campuses. As a result of the saga, some have already stopped attending or joined nearby congregations...

America’s oligarchs face left-wing, right-wing backlash

When the late Steve Jobs died in 2011, even protesters from the left-wing Occupy Wall Street movement mourned his passing. Today, it is unlikely that the passing of tech giant would elicit much in the way of sympathy from progressives or, for that matter, almost anyone else. As Amazon’s expulsion from New York suggest, the tech oligarchs are gradually morphing from great saviors to widely perceived threats to the republic. Rather than gutsy entrepreneurs, they are seen increasingly as greedy oli...

People are finding hidden cameras on some American Airlines and Singapore Airlines planes. Here's what that's about

In-flight entertainment or IFE systems are a ubiquitous part of air travel these days. Recently, passengers spotted cameras built into the IFE systems on American Airlines and Singapore Airlines flights. According to both airlines, the cameras are disabled and will not be activated. Airlines purchase their IFE systems from third-party manufacturers and the cameras were built into the system by those manufacturers. The American Airlines system was made by Panasonic while the Singapore Airlines ...

NASA’s confidence in SpaceX and Boeing may be wavering

To say that NASA bet big on U.S. companies Boeing and SpaceX to provide solutions for manned spaceflight would be a colossal understatement. The space agency basically put all its eggs in two baskets, and neither of them seem to be capable of staying on track, with countless delays, setbacks, and the cost overruns that accompany them.As Reuters reports, NASA's recent rundown of "key risk items" heavily features the manned spaceflight hardware currently being worked on by SpaceX and Boeing, a...

Why the Air Force (As In the F-22 and F-35) Needs Boeing's F-15X Fighter

Unfortunately, today’s fighter force mix, despite increasing numbers of F-35s over time and upgraded F-22s, will likely not be enough to meet future needs. America needs the F-15X.

Attending a Southwest Rally in Vegas, But Flying JetBlue Home (Trip Report)

Southwest used to put together something called the “Message to the Field,” a big party that also happened to be an attempt to tell everyone how the company was doing. Over the years, this has morphed into what today is called a Rally. They do 3 or 4 a year, and it involves thousands of people throughout the company getting a dose of the Southwest Kool-Aid. I was invited to attend the airline’s Vegas event this year, but alas, it’s entirely off the record. While I can’t talk about the event ...

Exclusive: SpaceX, Boeing design risks threaten new delays for U.S. space program

NASA is paying SpaceX $2.6 billion and Boeing $4.2 billion to build rocket and capsule launch systems to return astronauts to the International Space Station from U.S. soil for the first time since America's Space Shuttle program went dark in 2011. Just ahead of the first scheduled un-manned test flight slated for March 2 under NASA's multibillion-dollar Commercial Crew Program, NASA's safety advisory panel cited four "key risk items" in its 2018 annual report earlier this month.

An Appreciation for the A380, an Airplane That Never Should Have Been Built

Less than 20 years after the aircraft program was launched, Airbus announced last week that it would begin winding down production on the A380. I’ve always thought this was an airplane that never should have been built. If Airbus breaks even on this program, then that would be the best possible outcome. If that doesn’t scream “not successful,” I don’t know what does. But that doesn’t mean it was all bad. In fact, as a passenger, the airplane was — and is — a delight to fly. So, consider th...

A few weeks back I had written about British Airways’ plan to repaint one of their Boeing 747s, with a retro British Overseas Aircraft Cooperation (BOAC) livery. The livery was the standard BOAC livery between 1964 and 1974. The aircraft G-BYGC entered the paint shop at Dublin Airport on 5 February, with the aircraft having … The post Pictures: BOAC 747 retro-jet rolled out by British Airways appeared first on Bangalore Aviation. >>> To read the full story click on the headline above.

Delta is the first US airline to fly the new Airbus A220 jetliner. Here are its coolest features. (DAL)

Delta Air Lines is the first carrier in the Americas to operate the new Airbus A220 airliner.

Avatar Airlines Has a New CEO and is Looking to Source 14 Boeing 747s on Social Media

Family Airlines started about 27 years ago. The idea was fly 747s between Las Vegas and Los Angeles as well as Newark, later adding cities like Miami and Honolulu. The government refused to process an application for service, reportedly insisting that founder Barry Michaels give up control of the project. Nonetheless, he continued raising money and the SEC filed suit over a securities offering. Continue reading Avatar Airlines Has a New CEO and is Looking to Source 14 Boeing 747s on Social Media...

Flying 1,300 mph on airplanes would be great. But future aviation has other plans.

In the year 2044, our cities might be energized by fusion power plants, our sleek cars may all run on electricity, and our doctors might regularly employ gene-editing to cure blindness.  But our airplanes will probably still fly at the same speeds they did half a century ago: between 550 and 600 mph.  Supersonic flight — which is to say speeds that exceed the speed of sound (768 mph) and can dramatically slash flight times — died out for civilians in 2003 with the retirement of the narrowly-shap...

How American is Planning to Use Their Boeing 787s, in Philadelphia and Beyond

Last month American said that they've got too much Boeing 787 capacity because Europe is seasonal, they cancelled 787 flights out of Chicago, and because they keep waiting for their joint venture with Qantas to be approved which would allow them to deploy more 787s on South Pacific routes. Last year though American ordered 47 more Boeing 787. So what are they going to do with them? Continue reading How American is Planning to Use Their Boeing 787s, in Philadelphia and Beyond...

Sunday Strategist: Airbus Grounded Its A380 After Only 11 Years - Bloomberg

Sunday Strategist: Airbus Grounded Its A380 After Only 11 Years - Bloomberg:Airbus finally grounded its massive A380 a mere 11 years after its debut (in airplane years, that’s a blink).The strategy on this superplane was suspect from the start. It was conceived in the late 1990s to conquer Boeing’s 747 and it did just that—in size, range and Instagram-worthy features. But when Airbus finally gave the 380 the green light, Boeing’s big bird was 31 years old and already starting its long, gradual d...

Elon Musk says SpaceX is developing a 'bleeding' heavy-metal rocket ship. Making it work may be 100 times as hard as NASA's most difficult Mars mission, one expert says.

SpaceX is developing a giant, fully reusable launch system called Starship to ferry people to and from Mars. Elon Musk, the aerospace company's founder, said he recently made "radical" changes to the spacecraft's design. One change gives Starship a stainless-steel body. The other is a heat shield that will "bleed" liquid during landing to cool off the spaceship and prevent it from burning up. But aerospace experts anticipate huge challenges for Starship, including clogs in heat-shield pores ...
