As of yesterday’s Farnborough airshow closing ceremony for 2022. It experienced the high demand aviation expansion expected by Boeing and Airbus in the following years. The same has been reported by OAG. As the airshow has become a game changer for several manufacturers and a new challenger in modifying the strategy to attract customers.

Let us begin with Boeing. The Boeing company performed exceptionally well at the airshow, receiving the greatest number of orders and commitments to purchase the aircraft despite the fact that the aircraft manufacturer had previously faced criticism for the Boeing 737 Max, but after the aircraft returned to commercial service, few airlines still consider the Boeing 737 Max for their airlines.

The Boeing corporation has three significant airlines in the pipeline with production halts owing to clarification and certifications: the Boeing 737-10 max and the Boeing 787, as well as the Boeing 777x, which is in the experimentation phase.

With all of the challenges and successes, Boeing is poised to challenge the market with great confidence. The long wait has finally come to an end. Since the Farnborough airshow, the company’s reputation has improved and demand has returned to pre-show levels.


On Boeing last day at Farnborough, the company maintained high order rates, and airlines are placing new orders. Surprisingly, the Boeing 737 Max is in high demand, with orders for more than 253 aircraft, including purchase commitments for purchasing aircraft.

Airbus has joined Hy24, the world’s largest clean hydrogen infrastructure investment fund managed by Ardian, a global private investment firm, and FiveTHydrogen, an investment manager specialising in clean hydrogen initiatives.

The Hy24 investment fund will give financial backing for genuine, large-scale green hydrogen infrastructure projects around the world.

Alaska Airlines plans streaming-fast satellite Wi-Fi upgrades to E175 regional jets



Alaska Airlines plans streaming-fast satellite Wi-Fi upgrades to E175 regional jets

Alaska Airlines elevates its regional flying experience with an all-jet fleet, and become the first major airline to announce plans to offer streaming-fast satellite Wi-Fi on a regional jet aircraft. It have selected Intelsat’s newest satellite Wi-Fi technology to make that happen.

How Does In-Flight Wi-Fi Really Work?(Opens in a new browser tab)

Intelsat’s new system closely aligns with Alaska’s needs for regional fleet. The new, faster service will utilize an electronically steered array (ESA) which is a small, lighter weight antenna with no moving parts – making it easier to maintain in the unique regional environment. In an industry first, Intelsat’s new system will communicate with both traditional geostationary (GEO) satellites and new low Earth orbit (LEO) satellites. With an additional $25 million investment, this upgrade represents a major step forward in the travel experience for guests, enabling higher speeds and more coverage in the air, particularly across areas in the state of Alaska.

The new system will debut on Horizon Air, and sister airline, in early 2024 and roll out across regional jet fleet, including on partner SkyWest, over a two-year period. With nearly all mainline fleet set to feature satellite Wi-Fi by this April – also installed by Intelsat, on track to provide consistent streaming-fast Wi-Fi across entire fleet by 2026.

Virgin Orbit wants to be the ‘Uber for satellites’. Its cost-effectiveness is explained.(Opens in a new browser tab)


With satellite Wi-Fi, you can stream, browse and chat on board using the internet much like you’re used to when you’re on the ground. You can enjoy content on your personal devices from your favorite services such as Netflix, Hulu, YouTube and TikTok. Or jump online if you need connectivity to get some work done. Another bonus: On aircraft enabled with satellite Wi-Fi, you can connect from the moment you board instead of waiting for the connection to kick in after the boarding door closes – it’s seamless connectivity from gate to gate.

Worlds Ugliest Aircraft




Worlds Ugliest Aircraft's Passenger Aircraft unusual design

The Super Guppy 

Courtesy- WikipediaCourtesy: Wikipedia

The Aero Spacelines Super Guppy is a large, wide-bodied cargo aircraft that is used for hauling outsize cargo components. It was the successor to the Pregnant Guppy, the first of the Guppy aircraft produced by Aero Spacelines. Five were built in two variants, both of which were colloquially referred to as the “Super Guppy”

[adinserter block=”1″]

The first, the Super Guppy, or “SG”, was built directly from the fuselage of a C-97J Turbo Stratocruiser, the military version of the 1950s Boeing 377 “Stratocruiser” passenger plane. The fuselage was lengthened to 141 feet (43 m), and ballooned out to a maximum inside diameter of 25 ft (7.6 m), the length of the cargo compartment being 94 ft 6 in (28.8 m). The floor of the cargo compartment was still only 8 ft 9 in (2.7 m) wide, as necessitated by the use of the Stratocruiser fuselage.

The McDonnell XF-85 Goblin was an American prototype fighter aircraft conceived during World War II by McDonnell Aircraft. It was intended to be deployed from the bomb bay of the giant Convair B-36 bomber as a parasite fighter. The XF-85’s intended role was to defend bombers from hostile interceptors, a need demonstrated during World War II. Two prototypes were constructed before the program was terminated.

The Transavia PL-12 Airtruk is a single-engine agricultural aircraft designed and built by the Transavia Corporation inAustralia. The Airtruk is a shoulder-wing strut braced sesquiplane of all-metal construction, with the cockpit mounted above a tractor engine and short pod fuselage with rear door. The engine cowling, rear fuselage and top decking are of fibreglass. It has a tricycle undercarriage, the main units of which are carried on stub wings. It has twin tail booms with two unconnected tails. Its first flight was in 22 April 1965, and was certified on 10 February 1966The Airtruk is also sometimes known as the Airtruck. Because the name “Airtruck” was registered by the New Zealand companies Bennett Aviation Ltd and Waitomo Aircraft Ltd, for their PL-11, Transavia found another name for their PL-12 (“Airtruk”)

The PL-11 Airtruck was in fact a successful crop-duster, appreciated by the pilots who flew it for a living. Only two were built, in New Zealand, but some of the 118 examples of its successor, the Australian Transavia PL-12 Airtruk, are still at work all over the world. The Airtruck and Airtruk were designed for a specific job—aerial application—rather than adapting a conventional airplane to the task. The pilot was placed high above both the engine and the chemicals hopper, rather than sitting between them waiting to be crushed in a crash, and the perch gave him a superb view for low-level maneuvering.

The Deux-Ponts

If the Lockheed Constellation was a dolphin, the Deux-Ponts was a manatee. Yet it was an excellent airplane, flying for Air France, the French Armée de l’Air and a few smaller operators from 1952 through 1971. With two full passenger decks, it could seat 135 in a pinch, substantially more than its only double-deck competition, the Boeing 377 Stratocruiser—which in fact had only a partial lower deck configured as a cocktail lounge. But it was unpressurized and had a capacity far beyond what any airline of the time needed.

The EL/M-2075 is a solid-state L-band conformal array radar system for use on a Boeing 707 and other aircraft. Phalcon, as the complete AEW mission suite is referred to, is intended for airborne early warning, tactical surveillance of airborne and surface targets and intelligence gathering. It also integrates the command and control capabilities needed to employ this information

[adinserter block=”12″]

The system can be fitted to a number of aircraft, including the Boeing 707, Boeing 767, Boeing 747 series aircraft. Under a contract signed with Chile in 1989, the first Phalcon system to be installed was fitted to a former LanChile Boeing 707, and was first flown in 1993. In May 1994 the aircraft was delivered to the Chilean Air Force, where it is known as the Condor.

The Avro Shackleton was a British long-range maritime patrol aircraft for use by the Royal Air Force (RAF) and the South African Air Force (SAAF). It was developed by Avro from the Avro Lincoln bomber, itself being a development of the famous wartime Avro Lancaster bomber. The type is named after the polar explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton.


[adinserter block=”2″]

Entering service with the RAF in 1951, the Shackleton was used primarily in the anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and maritime patrol aircraft (MPA) roles; it also became used as a search and rescue (SAR) platform and for performing several other secondary roles such as being a troop-transport. In later life, a small number of the RAF’s Shackletons were subsequently adapted for airborne early warning (AEW) duties, performing in this capacity until the type’s retirement in 1991. The Shackleton was also procured by South Africa, and would be operated by the SAAF between 1957 and 1984.

RAF victor

The Handley Page Victor was a Britishjet-power edstrategic bomber, developed and produced by the Handley Page Aircraft Company, which served during the Cold War. It was the third and final of the V-bombers operated by the Royal Air Force(RAF), the other two V-bombers being the Avro Vulcan and the Vickers Valiant. The Victor had been developed to perform as part of the United Kingdom’s airborne nuclear deterrent. In 1968, the type was retired from the nuclear mission following the discovery of fatigue cracks, which had been exacerbated by the RAF’s adoption of a low-altitude flight profile to avoidinterception.

Aircraft comparison

Aircraft comparisons between the Chinese-built comac C919 and the Boeing 737 max 8 




In this post, we’ll compare two narrow-body aircraft, one from the United States (the Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft) and one from China (the Comac C919 aircraft), which was just domestically manufactured.

China is seeking a larger market to supply its aircraft to domestic and foreign customers. Eastern China Airlines has recently received delivery of its first aircraft. With regard to its Boeing 737 segment of aircraft, Boeing already holds the largest market share. Undoubtedly, if the Comac aircraft becomes widely used, Boeing may lose market share in China.

Let’s analyze the specifications of both aircraft.

[adinserter block=”12″]

Boeing B737-8. 


The Boeing 737 MAX is the fourth generation of the Boeing 737, a narrow-body airliner manufactured by Boeing Commercial Airplanes (BCA), a division of the American company Boeing. The first MAX 8 was delivered in May 2017 to Malindo Air, which began using it on May 22, 2017. A MAX 8 carrying 162 passengers on a 3,000 nautical mile (5,600 km) flight is anticipated to burn 1.8 percent less fuel than an airplane with blended winglets.

Compared to the A320neo, the MAX 8 is heavier at takeoff and has a lower empty weight. During a test flight for Aviation Week, the aircraft was flying at a less-than-ideal height while cruising at a real airspeed of 449 knots (832 km/h) and weighing 140,500 pounds (63,700 kg). The Boeing 737 MAX 8 completed its first flight test in La Paz, Bolivia. The 13,300-foot altitude at El Alto International Airport tested the MAX’s capability to take off and land at high altitudes.

[adinserter block=”13″]

In early 2017, a new B737-8 was valued at $52.85 million, rising to below $54.5 million by mid-2018, and the latest version is having a 200 Seater variant under construction for Ryanair. With a 160-passenger capacity, the 737-8 has so far been the most popular model.

Comac C919

A narrow-body airliner called the Comac C919 was created by the Chinese company Comac, and it had its inaugural flight on May 5, 2017. Not early than 2022 or 2023 is anticipated for the first commercial deliveries of the aircraft to China Eastern Airlines. Comac had 1008 pledges as of the end of August 2018, including 305 firm orders, many of which came from Chinese leasing companies or airlines.

At Shanghai Pudong International Airport, the C919 successfully completed its first pre-delivery flight test. According to Comac, the aircraft successfully finished a three-hour test session on May 14, 2022. This year will see the delivery of the aircraft in the livery of the Chinese company OTT Airlines, a division of China Eastern. The aircraft was listed in May 2022 for 653 million yuan (US$95 million), nearly matching the prices of the Airbus A320neo and Boeing 737 Max rivals and more than double the earlier estimate of US$50 million.

How the Comac C919 similar from the A320 and B737 Max.(Opens in a new browser tab)

The C919 has a lower maximum fuel capacity than the A320 and 737-800, As a result, the normal variant’s range is only 2,200 nm and the extended range variants is 3,000 nm, respectively. Because the C919 was built to accommodate more passengers than the Boeing 737-800 in a standard all-economy configuration, COMAC was able to expand the fuel capacity and, consequently, the range of the aircraft.
