Share shares The craft, seen hidden under a cloth, was at first believed to be a radical new craft using electric ‘hairdryer’ to allow it to land and take off vertically. The MQ will also have to seamlessly integrate with a carrier’s catapult and launch and recovery systems, allowing it to use all of the same systems as the fighter jets it will refuel. The UAS is completing engine runs before heading to the flight ramp for deck handling demonstrations early next year. The Navy issued its final request for proposals in October, and proposals are due Jan. Mike Shoemaker said in the September issue of Proceedings. The design leverages two large fans buried in the aircraft’s fuselage to provide vertical lift and a pair of swiveling wingtip fans for stability and control during hover and for propulsion during forward flight. The idea is to have one or two General Electric CT turbines produce power to drive all these fans electrically, although an early prototype might not include a full hybrid electric drive system. Boeing says this configuration is far more efficient than a normal helicopter and DARPA’s original design goals included hitting speeds beyond knots and carry 4, lbs. The design leverages two large fans buried in the aircraft’s fuselage to provide vertical lift Earlier this year, the first prototype of the LightningStrike, Darpa’s vertical take-off and landing experimental aircraft project took to the air – and maybe of its capabilities could be in the new craft. The current effective strike radius of a Super Hornet is about miles, and the MQ could extend the range to more than nautical miles.

Trust after dating a sociopath Losing trust Trust is an important part of any relationship. We need to trust others, to be able to have a healthy normal relationship. When you have been in a relationship with a sociopath, there is no doubt that your trust has been abused. Not only has it been abused, the sociopath relied on your trusting nature to use you for whatever they wanted.
This model does have the issue and comparing it to my other United Saul Bass from Aeroclassics with the small titles you can see how inferior it looks in this area.
James Needham, senior operations leader Boeing Sheffield. It will make parts for s and s. They will be shipped to Boeing Portland and assembled into actuation systems — the motors that move wingflaps — before being taken to another factory to be installed on aircraft wings. The site will employ 52, including 25 apprentices, and make 10, parts-a-month at full production next year.
Jenette Ramos, Boeing senior vice president of manufacturing, supply chain and operations, was set to say: This is a fabulous example of how we are engaging global talent to provide greater value to our customers. Boeing Sheffield manufactures components – including spur gears, shafts and housings – for the and wing trailing edge. Actuation systems provide extra lift at low speeds during takeoff and landing.
Secretary of state for business, energy and industrial strategy, Greg Clark, was saying: Maher Ltd of Sheffield, a first-time supplier to Boeing, will supply bespoke steel bar and pre-machined components made of steel from Liberty Speciality Steels, three miles from the new factory. Also recognised was MetLase Ltd, a first-time supplier to Boeing, which is based at the Advanced Manufacturing Park Technology Centre in Rotherham and which is a tooling and fixturing partner.
Boeing Sheffield will manufacture more than different components for its and aircraft here. We are committed to strengthening these partnerships to ensure we do what needs to be done to deliver on a scale where advanced manufacturing creates the high skill high wage manufacturing jobs in the numbers that will provide a strong base for our economy.
Boeing’s Embraer takeover reshapes global jet duopoly
For maximum passenger loads the lounge could be built as a standard passenger deck, instead, with a conventional seating arrangement. A circular staircase connects the lounge with the main cabin. Cargo and crew quarters fill the rest of the lower deck. The cocktail and observation lounge will accommodate fourteen persons in luxury before unknown to air travel.

Emirates is already the world’s largest client for Boeing’s , with jets and another on firm order. Delivery of the Dreamliners is scheduled to start in , he said on the first day of the Dubai Airshow. Emirates, the largest carrier in the Middle East, is also the world’s biggest client for Airbus superjumbo jets with planes. It has firm orders for another 46 jets. The carrier already has two jets. The announcement of the Boeing deal with Emirates came amid speculations the Dubai national carrier was also planning to announce another to buy more Airbus superjumbo jets.
That deal may still ago ahead after the hammering out of final details, a source within the industry said. On Thursday, Emirates said its half year net profit rebounded strongly from a slump last year due to cost saving measures and favourable exchange rates. The rise in earnings was driven by “capacity optimization and efficiency initiatives across the company, steady business growth, and a more favorable foreign exchange situation compared to the same period last year,” the airline said.
Boeing settles suit over cabin air safety
Developed by Kestrel Aviation Management , an American aviation asset manager that specialises in airliner and corporate aircraft acquisition, sale, modification and financing, this one-of-a-kind Boeing Business Jet BBJ has been dubbed the Dreamjet. The privileged few who get to step aboard can expect an in-flight experience worlds away from that offered on a typical Boeing.

There also are plans to flight-test the scale model next year.
The Boeing was a domestic flight going to Holguin, carrying passengers. The aircraft, on a domestic flight to Holguin in eastern Cuba, crashed shortly after taking off from Havana at 11 a. There were either or passengers, including five children, plus nine crew members, various state media said. Five of the passengers plus the crew were foreign, media reports said.
The Mexican government said Mexicans citizens were among the dead, without providing further details. The fire from the crash had been put out and authorities were identifying bodies, the president said. The cause of the crash was not immediately known and Diaz-Canel said authorities were investigating. The Boeing aircraft was built in and leased by Cuban airline Cubana from a small Mexican firm called Damojh, according to the Mexican government.
That would make it significantly older than most planes in service. Damojh in Mexico said it did not immediately have any more information. Cubana declined to comment. Cubana has been the subject of complaints over service and delays in recent months.

Boeing decide to kill its X stretched super jumbo in after little interest was shown by airline companies, but has continued to develop the ultimate Airbus crusher for years at its Phantom Works research facility in Long Beach, Calif. High body rigidity is another key factor in blended wing aircraft, It reduces turbulence and creates less stress on the air frame which adds to efficiency, giving the a tremendous nautical mile range with its passengers flying comfortably at mach.
A Boeing company blog produced by Randy Baseler, former vice president of marketing for Boeing Commercial Airplanes, tackled this subject back in November From Boulder, Colorado, Walter brings up a topic we frequently get questioned about: Is there any truth to the emails showing a blended wing 1, passenger concept that is dubbed a Boeing ? Makes sense that the airline industry would head this direction some day, but it just sounds too good to be true!
Yes, too good to be true, indeed, Walter. Someone was having a bit of fun with PhotoShop perhaps. Glen, from Warrington, Pennsylvania brings up the same subject: Is there a blended wing in the works?
Eastern Europe itself is hard to define. Competing designations might include only the former Soviet states, or all the formerly communist European nations. Apologies to any readers whose country is usually considered a part of Central or Southern Europe. Northeast of Mostar lies the capital of Bosnia, Sarajevo: Sarajevo was also heavily damaged during the war, when it weathered the longest siege of any capital city in the history of modern warfare.

More than 11, commercial airplanes , , , and or about 30 percent of the worldwide fleet flying today were built in Renton. From the time a fuselage enters the factory, it takes 10 days to complete an airplane. The final assembly building has two moving lines producing Next-Generation s and a third that will initially produce the MAX beginning in The P-8, a Navy submarine hunter and maritime patrol aircraft, and a military derivative of the , is also built at Renton.
In , the factory produced one of the most important airplanes in aviation history — the Boeing Dash The paved the way for the most successful selling commercial jet in history — the in The newest family member, the MAX will begin production in From airplanes to elephants: From July to , no aircraft were built in Renton. The plant was used for other purposes, such as a temporary home for a circus—including elephants.
On average, over 2, airplanes are in the air at any given time. This means that 31 percent of all commercial flights are on s. With approximately 5, airplanes in service, the represents more than a quarter of the total worldwide fleet of large commercial jets flying today. Each of the four large commercial jetliners built at Renton—the , , and —has surpassed the 1, aircraft-delivery milestone, a record of success unmatched by any other aircraft production facility in the world.
Head to Head: Singapore Airlines Boeing 9V
I just drove by the Ocala, FL airport and this plane has been parked there for a few days. John and his family arrived in SA last Thursday. I live only 15 minutes away from the airport and went out there last Saturday and saw the from about meters – what a beaut! Very sleek and neat!
The DHS official indicated that he and his team were able to do so without having any direct contact with the aircraft or using any materials that would be flagged by security.
Qantas chief Alan Joyce hopes to offer the non-stop connection in about five years. Bloomberg Qantas can offset the higher cost of carrying more fuel to complete the flight by saving on stopover costs, such as airport charges, ground handling, taxes, crew hotel rooms and lounge usage. But as fuel goes up, the disadvantages of flying a very heavy plane begin to make ultra-long haul problematic. The carrier is now waiting for delivery of the far more fuel-efficient twin-engined A ULR next year.
Headwinds Qantas is pushing the planemakers hard on a stretch goal of completing the Sydney-London flight with seats to give it the highest possible revenue and fleet flexibility. However, Fehrm said the aircraft would likely fall short of that goal if Qantas wanted to avoid a fuel stop on the westbound leg when headwinds are strongest. If such stopovers became frequent enough, Qantas would lose its ability to charge a premium on the route.
Two aviation industry sources said the Airbus A ULR would fit more than passengers on the Sydney-London route, up from the mainly business-class seats on Singapore Airlines’ configuration for flights to New York and Los Angeles. Boeing’s , due to enter service early in the next decade, could carry around passengers on the westbound leg of the Sydney-London flight, the sources said. The sources declined to be named because the configuration details are not finalised. Airbus and Boeing declined to comment specifically on the seat count.
That means the planemakers don’t have to invest specifically for any Qantas order, the size of which is still unclear.
