Aircraft, jets, airplanes, big, and small they all do the same thing, fly. Man has came a long way from just getting off the ground to breaking the
speed of sound in under a 100 years. Amazing! I would say.
I thought I would just say a liitle about aircraft of today and the future. I read in these posts of people bickering about what aircraft is better
and which one will be the king of the sky. But it does not seem like anyone just stops and think how all of the aircraft out there are linked
I have been in aircraft maintenance for a good ten years now and see with my own eyes how they are built. It seems evryone in the world has their
hands on building these machines. Just take the A380 mainly said to be a European aircraft but has parts from Asia and America, from Japan to the
U.S.A.. Amazing for a company most people think is just from Europe.
And of course Boeing, Lockheed, Northrop, etc. are just the same.
I hope people see the big picture that without all these countries aircraft probably would not be where they are today. Complex and confusing are the
parts that create these huge monsters of the sky. Technologically advanced but still basic in design. It is really cool to see these planes change
from year to year. As new models come out and you see the updates it just makes you think of how, how did we get here this fast?
I would say mostly from alliances, teamwork, and just plain human nature to create something of this standard. With this I hope you all just
appreciate everyone behind keeping us flying, a dream of man from the begining of time.
Thanx Im outta here
