It seems there are hundreds of wires and pipes that no one understands but no one will remove any of them in case they are important. The original developers have moved on and no one is quite sure about the diagrams left behind!

Thanks very much. Good to see Russian and USA aircraft in “peaceful coexistence”. Just think what an aviation development joint venture could be between the USA and Russia.

upstate New York on day, very cool.

Bunka here. The Airbus a380 is a beautiful plane that will go down in history as a flying white elephant. Boeing market research predicted there was a market for perhaps 300 of these behemoth’s, and today there about 250 orders for them. It will lose money, just like the SST lost money.

It’s amazing they can build those jet engines like that. “OK, I think we just need one more little tube connecting this to that and we’ll be done!” Factory’s like refinery’s freak me out too. Pipes everydamnwhere!
