Re: B 737-800 in the water in Micronesia

And, after reading, it is a rather interesting story. The procedure of an 'immediate' accounting for 'all' passengers apparently failed as did some sort of underwater drone video search. However, the procedure of double checking for 'all' passengers did not_fail as did an additional search of the pl...

Re: B 737-800 in the water in Micronesia

First impression is that sturdy aluminum alloys are less buoyant than cheap, carbon-fiber composites.

To land short probably requires some cowboy improvisation and deviation from procedures (unless there was a downburst).

It seems that a fuel priming device failure resulted in the engine running too rich and consuming fuel too fast until it ran out.

Re: Boeing Deception: 777X Wing Actually Elongated 787 Wing

OK, I buy the argument that increasing the aspect ratio can decrease the induced drag. But what about the tip vortices? If a wing is simply stretched but has the same form and lifting profile at the tip, it’s going to generate much the same vortices at the tip. I think I am beginning to understand ...
