    737 Max

    Good article . Heres a quote from Mr Learmount , a picture of Boeing power ( not mentioned though is the massive % of the USA GDP earned with their successful products ) and bed mates FAA . If America has an image it is that of the can-do, the entrepreneurial risk-taker. Why would Boeing or the FAA be different? One of the FAA’s stated values is this: “Innovation is our signature. We foster creativity and vision to provide solutions beyond today’s boundaries.” If America has an image it is that of the can-do, the entrepreneurial risk-taker. Why would Boeing or the FAA be different? One of the FAA’s stated values is this: “Innovation is our signature. We foster creativity and vision to provide solutions beyond today’s boundaries.” The world has benefited from the USA’s risk-taking culture which has driven some aviation advances faster than they would have occurred in other more risk-averse cultures like that of Western Europe. An example of this is the massive extension of ETOPs (extended range twin engine operation) with the arrival on the market of the Boeing 777, which ultimately drove the four-engined Airbus A340 out of the market and influenced the early close-down of the A380 line. Boeing and the FAA took the risk together, and together they got away with it. Is the 737 Max going to prove to be the one Boeing didn’t get away with? Time will tell.

    All of it , can't see any other outcome . Boeing got it wrong in Spades or maybe the FAA too ? I want to hear David Learmont's take on the whole 737 MAX8 thing. That man really is a star .
  4. Magic ! Well done . Loved the whistling wotsits at Brize with 115 Sqn around 1976 .
  5. It is an early Ptarmigan type battlefield communication truck then . Our went on Bedford MKs . 4x4 TKs is that right ?
  6. That was supposed a joke ,kind of … Look at the housing estate through the windows .
  7. Franz Brozincevic Wetzikon Found a similar truck on a FBW trucks Google image search . here is part of the description translated from German The vehicle was used as a mobile "center" for the Flab Abt 35 https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=FBW+trucks&tbm=isch&source=univ&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwimkIrjhPTjAhWqgVwKHUZfB58QsAR6BAgIEAE&biw=1366&bih=632#imgrc=nlxIA4Alx-KQmM:&spf=1565293527181
  8. Looks like the thing decades before the Ptarmigan battlefield communications truck . I was fitting SAS Ptarmigans out ,new builds in 1985 for 3 months . The Tparmigan's cabin was latched to the truck's flatbed . These must be a lot bigger , look at the housing estate through the windows of the truck in the top photo .
  9. Not much fun in Stalingrad , nyet .
  10. You just jogged my memory .. I saw one the other week at the hospital , Dk Blue . Can't be that many around . Don't know if it was a 24 Valve or 16 V though. BTW when was the last time you saw a Vauxhall Calibra ? I just checked .. How many Probes left in UK 156 16 valves and 236 24 valves Have you been on this site ? It's ace . Once in ,you can't get out …… It's a bit moreish ! https://www.howmanyleft.co.uk/
  11. True until the FB came out but by the time you got yours it was . A bit like the Comet only became Comet 1 once the Comet 2 was designed . Cortina wasn't a Mk1 until the Mk2 although you can argue the actual car called the Cortina 2 on the boot lid titles was built in the Mk1 shape knocking out the previous Mk1 facelift, integrated sidelights and indicator part of the front grill assembly and new interior round front vents different roof pressing thicker C pillar with external vent outlet grills. love confusion . The 1957 Victor F (A) was same time as the 1957 Cresta P (A) and was it's stablemate. I just read through my Daily Mail and Express Motorshow reviews from 54 ish to 1964 The 57 Victor is just that and so is the 2nd Victor , FB isn't mentioned . It will be on workshop manuals I expect.
  12. All Victors were F something . FA was first ,FB of 1963 ish also 1st VX4/90 , FC ,FD FE ,. Think FE was last before Cavalier P was Crestas, PA,PB etc. Not sure if Velox, Viscounts were included with that , think they were as the basic body shape. PE the last before the Carlton/Senator C was vans CA etc. CF the last H Vivas HA etc. HE the last before the Chevette ? Brains hurting !
  13. An FA Victor ? Loved to have seen that .
  14. Mint ? And theres you with an avatar like the Fox's logo ! Thought this thread was about cars anyway !
  15. Could that MGTD thing be an Allard K1 , Allard also had an Aceca lookalike (ish and from a distance !) called the Palm Beach . Bit weird ? Shall I get my coat ? Might have been an Allard owners club show somewhere, then again probably wasn't !
