It remains as the most beautiful commercial aircraft ever been in the sky... that's my opinion.

Agnès FAURY CEDIOLI's curator insight, September 9, 2013 4:28 AM

De très beaux souvenirs ! J'étais alors à Air France à la documentation technique Concorde/Airbus. Et un vol technique inoubliable vers Shanon sur ce bel oiseau. Une belle rétrospective.

Why volcanic ash is so terrible for airplanes

Why volcanic ash is so terrible for airplanes | Positive climb | Scoop.it

The risk posed to aircraft by airborne volcanic ash is as bad as ever, but airlines are better equipped to spot and avoid trouble---and save money---than they were four years ago.

As Texas celebrates winning SpaceX spaceport, Florida regroups | Space Politics

On Monday, Texas Gov. Rick Perry confirmed what had neen widely speculated for weeks, if not months: SpaceX would establish a commercial launch site on the Gulf of Mexico near Brownsville, Texas. The state is providing about $15 million in funds to support spaceport development, although the release notes that construction will involve “$85 million in capital investment,” presumably from SpaceX.

 

The announcement was the culmination of several years of efforts by local and state officials, including Perry, to lure SpaceX to establish the launch site there. The letter noted state officials first talked with SpaceX in the spring of 2011, and Perry had since met with SpaceX CEO Elon Musk and “provided letters of support” as SpaceX worked through launch site regulatory efforts with the FAA.

Boeing to pack fliers tight on high-density 737 model

Boeing to pack fliers tight on high-density 737 model | Positive climb | Scoop.it

Already squeezed for space on many flights, economy class passengers may soon lose another two inches of legroom when the fly on no-frills airlines.

That comes after Boeing confirmed on Sunday that it's planning to offer a "modified" high-density version of its popular 737 that will seat up to 200 passengers -- 11 more than on the comparable current model of the 737. The high-density version of Boeing's 737 MAX 8 jet will be targeted to bare bones, low-cost carriers that want to squeeze as many customers as they can onto their flights.

Canada hasn't put a man into space in over a year, and likely won't do so until 2019. In the meantime, the country's space agency has elected to serve as a "hub" for the private sector's space goals instead.

Drone Nearly Collides with US Airways Jet

A US Airways Express jet nearly collided with a drone while landing at an airport in Florida, authorities have revealed. The shocking near mid-air collision while the flight was carrying passengers from South Carolina to the Tallahassee Regional Airport was first reported to authorities on March 22 but not publicly revealed until this week. The unmanned aircraft system (UAS) was within five miles of the airport and flying about 2,300 feet when it was spotted, the Federal Aviation Administration said in an email to the Daily News. Jim Williams, head of the FAA's unmanned aircraft office, described the UAS as camouflage-painted. He said the pilot witnessing the close call said he "was sure he had collided with it," the Wall Street Journal reported. "The risk for a small (drone) to be ingested into a passenger airline engine is very real," Williams said at a conference Thursday. "The results could be catastrophic." MORE...

Branson Reiterates Plan to Fly By End of Year | Parabolic Arc | Positive climb | Scoop.it

Parabolic Arc sources say that Virgin Galactic is operating under a Dec. 31 deadline to fly Branson into space from its primary backer, aabar Investments. Virgin Galactic denies it is under any deadline from aabar, which is owned by the Abu Dhabi government.

SpaceShipTwo has flown three times using rubber-nitrous oxide engines that burned for 16, 20 and 20 seconds apiece. On the final flight, the spacecraft reached 71,000 feet after being dropped from its WhiteKnightTwo mother ship from about 50,000 feet.

Seven months have passed since that Jan. 10 flight. SpaceShipTwo has been modified to use a new nylon-nitrous oxide engine that burns smoother and will take the ship to a higher altitude. The goal is to get above 50 miles or 264,000 feet.

Airbus Thinks Big With Small Electric Plane

Airbus Thinks Big With Small Electric Plane | Positive climb | Scoop.it

Airbus Group, the international consortium that makes huge jetliners, has debuted a new kind of aircraft: a tiny, electrically powered plane called the E-Fan.

The experimental plane is a two-seater and measures a mere 19 feet in length, with a wingspan of just over 31 feet. The twin-engine E-Fan’s power comes from 120 250-volt lithium-ion polymer batteries that can move the craft at speeds up to 136 mph.

“It's a very different way of flying,” said Jean Botti, chief technical and innovation officer at Airbus Group. “Absolutely no noise, no emissions.”
