Re: Boeing 747: It just keeps going and going...

Found it. It was the Carvair. Ridiculous thing.
The Carvair had rather more than two engines. The Bristol 170 didn't.
.......and talking about Bristol 170s.........

Re: Squid lures 737 into sea.

Once again a gross misinterpretation of what happened.

The crew just decided their pax would like a nice trip to the beach, and decided to take them there! :mrgreen:
Please, check the facts.

Re: Squid lures 737 into sea.

That photo has a resemblance with our new AIRDISASTER.INFO logo.
Are you suggesting that the photo is a ripoff, and does not show Turkey, but Chicken?

Re: New AD Logo for 2018

I think the ideal logo would incorporate a mangled airplane, a squid, and a llama. It would appear that our current logo features an octopus rather than a squid. https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=mega+shark+versus+giant+octopus&tbm=isch&tbs=simg:CAQSlQEJ73tiwYQjmTcaiQELEKjU2AQaAggVDAsQsIynCBpiCmAIA...

Re: New AD Logo for 2018

The directors of the firm hired to produce the AD.info llogos after the other people had been sacked, wish it to be known that they have just been sacked. The llogos have been completed in an entirely different style at great expense and at the last minute.

Re: New AD Logo for 2018

RoG, some of your submitted llogos will be used in rotation this year.
The logo does not have to have "airdisaster.info" in it. We all know where we are.
I will take this as encouragement to include a llama in one of the llogos.
In the meantime..........

Re: New AD Logo for 2018

[Sully & Customers]
Rearrange things so that the tailfin becomes the "I" in info. [Semi serious suggestion for an awesome logo]

That, and fix the cropping, focus, color balance, and levelness.
Your wish.....etc

It seems so....

Re: Dec. 24, 2017: First flight of the AVIC AG600

INDEED , I stand corrected. But the HS is Not_American, so both it and the Falcon are copies of the 727 :mrgreen: . I'll assume this is irony/humour/sarcasm/satire or whatnot as the Trident design predates the 727. Cf. The first non-stop flight across the North Atlantic - the majority of the great ...

fuel starvation is on the parlour-speculation list.
