95629: More like SCREAMLINERAmirite???
lordargent: I read the headline as "Barrio Logan" and thought, hmm, a plane crash there would increase the real-estate values.
Lev_Astov: Every new major aircraft that isn't an iteration on a previous design undergoes a break in period.
95629: More like SCREAMLINER
vabeard: I had a clear view of Logan on 9/11./obscure?
FlippityFlap: starrionYou DON'T hit your battery with a fire ax? What's it doing in my engine compartment then?
starrion: The description of the battery incident mentioned that the battery might have been worsened when the battery was hit with a fire ax.
Charlie: "Ray, all airlines have crashed at one time or another, that doesn't mean that they are not safe. "
Raymond: "QANTAS. QANTAS never crashed. "
Charlie: "QANTAS? "
Raymond: "Never crashed. "
Charlie: "Oh that's gonna do me a lot of good because QANTAS doesn't fly to Japan out of Boston, you have to get to Melbourne! Melbourne, Australia in order to get the plane that flies to Japan! "
darch: +1 on FlippityFlap's comment.This isn't the SR-71, who's design sort of demanded that it leak like a sieve on the Tarmac.
spawn73: 95629: More like SCREAMLINERAmirite???I think this is karma for all the trolls who made scarebus comments.farking morons./Screamliner.
Fark Rye For Many Whores: How does a plane fly like that?

Cormee: Ok, this whole 'SCREAMLINER' things seems to be growing legs. So, and it may seem petty, you may want to redirect your praise to me as I coined it in yesterday's thread.SCREAMLINER/in fact, truth be known, I've been pushing it in pretty much every Boeing thread for the last few months

It's as old as Scarebus.
jack21221: Flying into Logan tomorrow night on a Boeing. (A 717, so I should be fine). I really shouldn't be reading articles like this beforehand though.
Maxor: Why on earth are they making a big deal about fuel leaks on a heavy wide bodies aircraft. Its not like jet fuel even burns very well./the vapors on the the other hand....
darch: If yours is a serious question, the SR-71 flew so high and so fast that it literally expanded in flight. The body was designed to flex. Great for hypersonic, stratospheric flight, not so great parked on a Tarmac.
