    Christ, Indian procurement is such a shitshow. At least the old fighters Canada got cost about a six pack of Molson + a Wayne Gretzky autograph, and are already in working order.

    The A380 is ceasing production in 2021; https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2019/02/citing-lack-of-demand-airbus-cancels-a380-superjumbo-aircraft/ In general, things have been trending away from large airliners, the 747-8 is still only barely alive, plus mid-sized birds like the 767, 777, and A330 are more capable than previous twins.
  4. @Jeeps_Guns_Tanks to be fair Mechanized has usually had a more 'serious' tone than other forum sections (I don't post much in it because I'm not an expert but I occasionally read).

    Did somebody say (half) aircraft carriers? https://stefsap.wordpress.com/2015/10/27/usns-1930-flight-deck-cruiser-designs/
  9. I think his point was that a lot of people see it the other way around. (although I voted for A. Leppo in 2016, so you should probably disregard my opinion)

    The Meteorology Thread: Hector Lives

    However, one look at any of the forecast soundings shows how impressive/deep the stratospheric intrusion is/will be -- with the tropopause (the separation between the troposphere and stratosphere) expected to fall to as low as 3kft- 4kft AGL this afternoon -- which is almost unheard of for these latitudes. This is what truly speaks to the rarity of this pattern that has evolved, even if daily records are not met/exceeded. https://forecast.weather.gov/product.php?site=NWS&issuedby=ILN&product=AFD&format=CI&version=3&glossary=1&highlight=off Stratosphere is getting ridiculously low
