    Boeing 787 is Out!
    For someone who flies a lot this is a news!!

    Here's the story (and they have a video there too).

    Can't wait till this 300-seater is in the air and purchased by airlines worldwide...

    Boy, wouldn't it be wonderful if one could affiliate for Boeing and sell a 787 or two, LOL.

    $200,000,000 for an airplane composed primarily of plastic?


    Is this Boeing, or Revell?

    (It'd be interesting to see how Revell would handle that height and speed)

    the plastic they are using is stronger than aliminum

    I saw the extreme engineering on discovery HD about it a few months ago

    The good thing about metal, is occasionally it will bend before breaking.

    But the plane looks very interesting..

    Carbon Fiber on bicycles scares me.

    Being surrounded by it at 35,000 feet at 500 miles an hour????

    I hate to break it to you, but Airbus is also starting to use carbon-fiber reinforced plastic. Their new A380 is a combination of aluminum and plastic.

    "Composites, which have greater strength than metallic counterparts, have only recently become more widespread in commercial planes, although they are common in military aircraft. Composites have several advantages over traditional materials. "For one thing, they don't corrode the way aluminum does," Tecop's Weber says, noting that metal fatigue has been implicated in a number of airplane crashes."

    Nearly everyone who flies in commercial airplanes will be flying on plastic planes soon...

    Geno... LOL.

    In college, I learned a bit about how their avionics software works. After that, I vowed to avoid Airbuses whenever possible.

    So you must know about the main avionics manufacturers installed on Airbus. To name just a few, Honeywell, Bendix, Sperry, Rockwell Collins... Don't you think it's the same manufacturers used by Boeing...

    I'm talking about the software side, integration of the components. I'm sure they use some of the same manufacturers for parts, but as far as I'm aware, the main software to integrate it all is Boeing proprietary. However, I'm not an expert.

    You should try. Contact them. Tell them you want to sell these on the Internet and use your affiliates to drive sales. You never know, they might say yes.

    Hell, I'd build a beautiful site for them, if they offered me an exclusive coupon.

    It would give a whole new meaning to "GB's".

    The Burt Rutan Voyager flew around the world non-stop in '83 and was all composite: http://www.centennialofflight.gov/es...tan/GA15G1.htm

    I would fly on the new plane in a heartbeat, but then again I fly towed gliders when I get the chance. http://www.soarcsa.org/images/grob.jpg
