    That there is almost just beautiful... What a fantastic plane



    I do however like the wing shape of the 787.. But the plane is tiny..



    The huge one is the a380 while the "little one" on the left is the Boeing 787..

    Look how tiny the other ones look..

    Airbus just did it less well by taking direct state subsidies, while Boeing took more subsidies, but indirectly.
    It is a little more complicated from what I am reading than just "a little less well."

    The Boeing subsidy as far as I can tell is for production, not research.

    Why would you compare a mid range and body jet to something that competes with the 747-400?



    It is a much cooler looking jumbo jet.

    This humongous plane would make quite a bomb.

    It can't land many places due to runway lengths and thicknesses.

    In the long run, it's a stupid plane. Airports aren't going to remodel for one plane. This means that the use of this plane has a ceiling. Demand is limited.

    Let's giggle and watch.
