1% less than required is good enough?
A majority of Airplane manufacture tests exceed expectation/specification


Would you fly on one.......

I would wait until a few crash and they work out the bugs!

Would you rather Boeing not test their aircraft before bringing to market?

They can test them, no problem with that, just don't like when a company lies, covers-up, or rushes a product to market placing profit ahead of lives of people that use their product! Hopefully they get it right (in good faith) with this one before placed into service!

All valid points of course. I just don't see evidence of any covering up or negligence with the 777 program.

Tell you what, if Boeing hasn't learned from their 'too quick to market' 737MAX, they're history. They gobbled up and absorbed all their competition in the U.S., but have lately stumbled when chasing an Airbus A320 family that is more modern and more compatible to engine upgrades. Boeing has squeezed all they could out of the original 737 air frame. The recent 777 fuselage pressurization failure ('almost successful') should be cause for concern, and is. Boeing have tripped over their crank, Doug

It's too bad we don't have McDonnell Douglas in the mix anymore, for competition's sake. I tire greatly of the Airbus vs Boeing crap. It's reminiscent of the Ford vs Chevy nonsense of my youth.

I fully agree. Too bad also there never was a MD-12X.

I miss the variety of designs. The endless churning out of the same generic looking designs these days, so boring. Add to that the plethora of mediocre liveries, yawn. Caravelles, F27, F28s, VC10s, Il62s, 707s stretched 8s, Viscounts, Vanguards, etc, and even the occasional DC 3 and DC6, man where have you all gone? I’m glad that I was able to work on those types way back when. But then again, the world moves on, and I’m getting old. Happy days.........I guess

Neil.

Oh I know where you are. But todays are tomorrows history.
How many of us used to diss when it was yet another BEA this or BOAC that when we had logged the fleet.....
But look at the A400m A lovely individual sound
and I have to admit a soft spot for the new A350-1000,
that is a beautiful stylish design.


I'll add this though from watching a London Airport DVD that Convair liners wer in 1947 and looked so modern. yet they continued in service albeit re-engined and some are still flying.
Operated loads of airlines even into Heathrow.
Finnish Kar Air into Gatwick early 70s and DHL into Luton in the 90's


I just feel it's a forgotten airliner. Although Herpa do some nice ones.
