A Really Super Jumbo Jet

By Robert Mark on July 20th, 2008

You have to love this one. And this has nothing to do with FAA!

London’s Times Online and Plane Stupid are spreading the story about how the BAA apparently supported its case plane stupid jetwhine.com for a third runway at London’s Heathrow Airport – the busiest airport in Europe – by using environmental data for an airplane the does not exist and is not even on the drawing boards.

The best quote of the article … “Nothing like this [super jumbo] is on the drawing board,” said one senior industry source. “I don’t think it’s feasible because the size of engines that would be required for this plane to safely take off don’t exist and aren’t under development.”

But these are the same folks that work with our own FAA. What a surprise.

    Just a thought, maybe a higher official with the london airport has invested in a classified jumbo jet project that they are hiding for unknown reasons. the u.s. government does the same thing quite often. it would make perfect sence. i would love to see a follow up on this article in a year. i would be willing to bet that i am right
