  • Why The Airbus A380 Is On A Dead Track And Will Be Beaten By The Boeing 777X [View article]
    Starlight.......

    Hang in there, the 747s will be flying for the next quarter century plus. It will take many years for them to thru their life cycle. They will outlive you and me.

    Four engine commercial aircraft are a relic of the past. AirBus would be very foolish to re-engineer and/or re-engine the 380. Their bast bet is a completely new aircraft design.

  • Boeing lands contract for 12 more P-8 spy planes [View news story]
    Don't worry Francis, the aircraft has some fancy radio intercept and photo capabilities that qualify it as a spy plane.

  • Boeing breaks ground on wing factory for new 777X [View news story]
    This will be a state of the art facility designed specifically for the 777X wing and it will shut up some of the Washington State union whiners. Not to say that Long Beach might not be the second assembly point for the 777X.

  • Boeing Dreamliner engine fails over the Atlantic [View news story]
    Many moons ago I was on route from JFK to LHR on a TWA 747 that lost two engines. Did not make the news anyplace. I guess times have changed.

    Thomas,

    I think Boeing should file for bankruptcy. What's your take on it?

  • Boeing, United Technologies stockpile titanium parts on Russian supply worries [View news story]
    I have heard figures well over the 35% stated in the article. If Russia cuts off their head to spite their face Boeing will feel it for sure!

    Philohipis;

    No, John Galt, the fictional inventor and financial manipulator, has nothing to do with the Super Alternator. I do like your dry humor. One other reader caught on and asked who is John Gault.

    My amigo tells me that the product, when fully developed, will create more energy then is needed to power the car. The excess will then be diverted back to power the alternator and charge the batteries. So as long as the batteries remain charged the vehicle will operate free from any other power source.

    I am not a rocket scientist but this seems doable to me.

    They have developed a stage one alternator that generates far more current than a like sized alternator. The government (US Army) is testing these now.

    The next big break through will be in super efficient small alternators. For all intensive purposes it will be perpetual motion. Alternators roughly the size of what is now on your car, but putting out ten+ times the current. The alternator will power the electric car through the battery and keep it charged at the same time and the battery will also power the alternator. That's it, the application runs for ever. A small factory in Springfield, Ohio is working hard on the alternator of the future. The Army has purchased some of their advanced alternators. Hooked to an Army Como Vehicle's system the alternator generates power and charges batteries for a host of radio and other electrical equipment, negating the need for a separate generator to be towed along on a trailer.

    Seems as good as, or batter than, the fuel cell.

    Continue the current gas tax for highway construction and repair. And don't do like is done in Georgia; divert part of the gas tax to the general fund! The gas tax will drive people to smaller more efficient cars and alternate source vehicles. Alternate source vehicles should not be taxed until they reach 25% of the fleet. That will encourage development and utilization.

  • Boeing secures agreement to sell aircraft parts to Iran [View news story]
    Maybe part of a bigger deal...........Boeing and Russia run the huge titanium plant in Russia that supplies about 80% if Boeing's titanium. So.............if Boeing plays ball with Russia's amigo, Iran, then as the Ukrainian situation hardens the titanium still flows.

    We will be engaged with the Iranians before the end of the decade. There is just no way this will have a happy ending. They are problem numeral uno and becoming ripe for an Israeli strike where the US comes along to bail out our friend.

    Israel has requested $200,000,000.00 worth of advanced patriot missiles and more firing batteries for their "iron dome" defense shields. Far more than is needed to replace what has been used with the Gaza incursion.

  • Boeing: Worth $150 Despite Messy Earnings [View article]
    Yes, PK, building a modern airplane is very tough to do, but all in all the 787 is a very smooth launch. Look back at some of the other launches; cargo doors 747, hull cracks DC-8, engine problems with several models of the Air Bus Jets, and the list goes on. The 787 is a rock solid aircraft that will be a money maker for Boeing for the rest of our lifetime. I think that safety and quality has a big effect on the speed of the production.
