A couple of pieces of airplane news:
Air India agreed to purchase 50 Boeing aircraft, including 20 787s in a decision that has taken absolutely forever. The article notes that the 787, which looked quite cool in initial drawings. is no longer quite as cool, with both the nose and tail becoming more traditional. Info on the change is supposedly available at Boeing’s website, but I can’t find it.
And you’ll have to watch the news to check out video of the A380’s maiden test voyage. Pretty amazing.
