No, not uninterrupted.

That guy >>1972653 is (somewhat) right. PIC is still at fault tho.
>>
>>1972642
you're not a pilot, and even if you were, how would you handle this situation? when things go right 99% of the time, you will be startled and do irrational things when something goes wrong,

they were confused, no visual horizon, accustomed to the automation of their plane. they suddenly get dozens of warnings & don't know which to believe, and the plane's "dual input" aural warning is not loud enough to get their attention.

the outcome of the crash was a correction to the training of pilots on automated flightdecks

aviation is as safe at is today, because we don't blame the individual

Only if a richfag airline decides to make a move and place an order for the upgrade package.
At something like, IIRC, 75(+/-5) million euros per plane, that's quite the bill.

I don’t see Airbus getting enough orders to justify the engineering and manufacturing costs make a stretch or a neo.

They should have just made a 757ng instead of forcing the 737 into a role it was never designed for.

That's a 747-8, nice footage though.
>>
>>1975513
You're right I'm retarded and mixed it up with a Korean A380 we also have that comes to our airport, I have a Asiana A350 landing I wanna clean up and a Saudia 777 I have to convert but it's genuinely fucking hard to find a good app on Android to compress and downgrade to 720p/remove audio/convert to webm a 70-80mb MP4 file

I'll post those in /gag/ tomorrow unless I find a way (I ran out of credits on the free sites)
>>
>>1975518
I'm also on Android, I've been using 3rd party websites to remove audio and compress, there are a few of them. Also do you happen to have the tail number of the Saudia 777? I may or may not have seen it before.
>>
>>1975520
It should be HZAK42 since that's when I recorded it. And with those free websites after 10-20 attempts you'll run out and they'll block you for the day. It's easy to run out cause compressing it and converting it will take a few attempts (forgot to remove audio, or still above 4mb limit often way above unless I reduce to 480 or 720p)

If anyone knows a Android app that lets me compress/remove audio/convert mp4 to webm I'll contribute more landings more often, even if I have to pay $5.

While Airbus does have their hands full for a while, by the early 2030's they should really look at making a MotM plane to fill out their range and act as roundabout R&D for the inevitable A350neo.

A325 WNB (Wide Narrow Body):

>3+3 20 inch or 3+4 17 inch for poors.
>~200/~250/~300pax 3/2/1 class nominal with ~360 maxpax for third worlders.
>~6000nmi range to replace 767-300ER routes
>757-esque takeoff performance for more airport options (2 ~55k lbf Ultrafans required)
>most extensive use of advanced materials ever
>Category D wing
>Aim to have similar efficiency to the A321neo on shorter routes, giving carriers flexibility
>far more efficient than A330neo/787 on longer routes with long and narrow point-to-point being the ideal role, but can help fill out high demand routes as well
>should ensure 321/330 pilots can be easily type rated
>most comfortable economy in the industry, making it a desirable, premium product to make new or existing point-to-point routes a more attractive option over hub+regional shitbox travel
>Delta would order 200+ without hesitation, plus should be a very strong plane for high growth markets like India, as it would give sufficient range to fly to all sorts of locations in Europe/Africa/Asia/Oceania while being cheaper to buy/operate than the existing widebodies that do those routes
>Config stated here would be the -800, a smaller -700 with derated engines and flexible range ~5k-7knmi depending on MTOW would be basically a slightly larger A321XLR on steroids with a similar goal of very long and narrow routes at a premium, and lower op costs/higher readiness
>A longer -900 would sacrifice range and takeoff performance for density, this would work well for slot constrained routes that current widebodies are overkill for
>extra cabin width compared to existing narrowbodies would open up really cool premium eco/business/first class seat designs

Prove me wrong.

No plane will ever match the 707 in terms of looks or aesthetics.
>>
>>1979433
Comet, Caravelle, CV-880, CV-990, if we look at turboprops, then Vangaurd, L-188 Electra, Il-18, F27 Friendship. They all look just as good if not better than the 707 (which really, the 720 was the only good looking variant, the rest are too elongated for their own good).

Comet and Caravelle are really strange, they look like someone stuck jet engines on a propliner. They're emblematic of the early jet age, but I would not consider them to be good-looking aircraft.
>>
>>1979454
I find propliners more aesthetically pleasing overall, so there is that.

I propose the A325 NWB which is exactly as you proposed it but in a 2+4+2 layout instead

>>1979462
The master of the skies
>>
>>1979506
So basically a modern A300.
Better for cargo volume and double aisle is comfy but will be less efficient per seat. In theory the WNB could be configured in 2+2+2 with similar or slightly wider seat width to 3+4.
>>
>>1979776
>basically a modern A300
Yes. Obviously they wouldn't bring back such an old airframe (no FBW in a 21st century Airbus?!) but something that's essentially an A310neo would be mouthwatering.
>less efficient per seat
Has anyone run the math on two equally capable (pax/cargo) aircraft with one being a narrowbody and the other a widebody? Boeing probably got pretty close with their joint 757/767 development but I'm genuinely curious as to what the numbers would look like between nearly identical twins.
