A great story

Things like this give me hope that our country hasn’t completely lost our minds.  I follow his Twitter account and it is nothing but great.

Sometimes you just have to wonder.  I am sure this guy was thinking, “It is just an empty tube”, but seriously, did you think that was going to pass without notice?

A really interesting article on MH370 and what we know and what we suspect.

It is not a new idea

Stories like this get under my skin.  The writer hasn’t got a basic historical knowledge.  If he or she did, they wouldn’t write this as if this is the first time the idea has ever occurred to anyone.  I think there is a real opportunity for a major manufacturer to do something bold like this, but it isn’t a new idea.

More on the 737-800

I’ve previously mentioned that I want to get the BPK 737 kits.  They’ve now shown the box art for the 737-800 kit.  I was hoping for SWA, but it looks like I’ll have to look to aftermarket.

The plane that accidentally flew around the world

A great story from WWII.  I had never heard it before.  It makes me want to build a Boeing 314.

737-800

Big Plane Kits (BPK) make a series of 737 kits in 72nd scale.  I’ve wanted these for some time, but they aren’t cheap and apparently not very widely distributed.  They’ve now announced a 737-800.  This just reminds me that I need to pick these kits up.

All jokes about French “cheese eating surrender monkeys” aside, this is the example of a man’s man.  RIP.

737 Max

Interesting article on the 737 Max software issues.  I think it is telling that US flag carriers haven’t had any problems and that the accidents in Indonesia and Ethiopia involve local carriers whose pilot training may not have been as vigorous.
