The thing is though would there be enough interest in this board to make it worthwhile whilst still having the existing board for all the black projects and the like. Well. whats the vibe on this?

Before discussing the vibes I needed to find out about a certain matter. Are you "aviation fans" in any way interested in exoaviation? I just coined the word. It means "extraterrestrial aviation". You see, the only model I happen to have is the Testors model of the so-called "Roswell UFO", a "Collector's Edition" (Item # 555) designed especially for the 50th anniversary of the incident (1947-1997).
Moreover, you might know that one of our fellow ATS members is an engineer and works for the Boeing company. When I found him in one of the chatrooms I suggested that he start a thread on the Boeing-Airbus rivalry. He dismissed the idea on the grounds that he was not a spokesman for the company. However, at least he offered the following priceless comment : that THE OUTCOME OF THE BATTLE WILL BE DECIDED BY THE PASSENGERS THEMSELVES.
So I was wondering, should one trust this opinion given out by an insider, or are there other factors involved which he would never discuss with outsiders? People sworn to secrecy cannot be expected to be outspoken. But apart from that, the conventional viewpoint, according to which in a free-market economy the consumer is sovereign, is no longer something you can swallow whole.
