    Whats everyones favourite movie and why??

    I need to catch up on Tarantino's recent stuff - so there might be an additional one or two I could add. Suppose I should add a few Bond movies - it always comes back to the 60s-70s classics though like Diamonds are Forever, Goldfinger and The Spy who Loved me.

    Problems with the 737MAX ?

    Hmm, Very personal but I think they made a very big mistake in keeping the 737 but dropping the 767. The latter was in many ways the best half-and-half, not quite a wide body but a bit broader than a narrow that they ever produced. It needed improvements in engine fuel efficiency, but not by much, other than that it could easily have been sized up or down just as Airbus do with the 300x. They've been finding that out as the core design takes on many new military roles, sort of a reversal of the KC-135 to -707 story. I'll make a very long-term side-bet, the new "small" aircraft will owe lot to the -767. The others ? Not enough for them to stay a front runner, the vote is in, people prefer overall the hub and spoke approach but by definition that means far more sales on the spokes than it does on the big jets servicing the hubs. Airbus have learned that and are retiring the -380 with no succession plans and the -747 is finally at EOL. TBH I'm not quite sure yet where the 787 fits, probably long and thin routes but those still have spokes. The 777 is taking over the role of the 747 in Boeing offerings, one last pass at the -800 but that will be it for the old lady. It really will depend upon how nimble Boeing can be the next few years, at the moment Airbus has a decided edge. Cheers

    Well Boeing better get 777x and 787 working or else it's coffin time in the commercial sector for them.

    Problems with the 737MAX ?

    Hmm, I might be having to correct myself, seems Boeing are gearing up on the assumption of being back in the air with the Max for Christmas: http://www.taipeitimes.com/News/biz/archives/2019/09/15/2003722290/1 That is not a logjam I'd want to be sorting out but buried in that article there is a mention of putting 1,500 engineers onto the task of building a new "small jet." That's both encouraging and an admission that the MAX is the last 737, which is way, way past time. However also there is some mention of the potential for over-supply which would not be exactly encouraging if you are bringing a new jet to market. Boeing I believe is in for a decade or more of trauma the way these things play out, particularly how long it takes to bring a completely new design to market. Meanwhile Airbus can stay nimble with their much newer -300x design but also start thinking about what is next. Endless war it seems. Cheers

    What Did You Watch Lately ?

    Heh. I'll give Russians one thing, their latest carrier debacle aside they do make very substantial ships. The Lenin, a nuclear powered ice-breaker worked for 30 years clearing passages through pack ice, now a museum in Murmansk, no idea if the reactor is still on board. Can't say that delivery trip bothers me much. Cheers

    Whats everyones favourite movie and why??

    Star Wars Ep IV - 4yr old me loved that movie, it was like nothing else I had seen before and probably started a healthy interest in space and science in general. I really do enjoy all the Star Wars movies truth be told and will probably watch them all before I go and see the Rise of Skywalker. The Last Starfighter The 5th Element The Guardians of the Galaxy The Matrix The Muppet Movie Big Hero 6 The Lord of the RIngs Series The Beastmaster The Terminator 1 & 2 Krull Spaceballs Aliens Movies that I can make references to, that will make my wife laugh tend to get on my favourites list, some however make it just because

    Whats everyones favourite movie and why??

    Heh, director's cut with Saw would HAVE to be a play on words... I'd sort of forgotten Ton Hanks movies, which is a massive oversight. Apollo 13 was brilliant, probably had to be slightly simplified but came as close as it could to what happened. Hanks was good in it of course, but so was Gary Sinise and Kevin Bacon and the late lamented Bill Paxton. (Which does remind me who can over look Aliens ? ) The Terminal really was very clever and based on real happenings. As already noted Forrest Gump just is a great, great movie. I really must re-watch it. Cheers

    i see dead people

    t was a race to say what took my mum, the death certificate list went damned near a page but officially pneumonia first. Either way she really did not want to go but in the end her body left her no option. If you believe in an after-life, personally I fence sit, she probably did not exactly make my dad's day, assuming they wound up in the same place ... Great lady in many ways, easy to live with, no... Cheers

    Frankly Ev that would not surprise me much. There is a distinct feeling he is writing cheques his body can't cash. Of course the same may come to be said of Trump. Cheers
