    South Asians in action. Wouldn't be surprised if a similar thing happened to a flight from CMB

    Its not only South Asian problem; Same thing happened in Las Vegas during BA 777 fire as well. Its a human nature I believe.

    I saw some people are even suggesting to have a crew-controlled central lock for overhead bins; so they remain locked during taxi/take off, landing and emergency.

    Fellow members, today I'm very sad to say that Mr Joe Sutter, known to many as the Father of the 747 has passed away at the age of 95. Since I was child I have been fortunate to fly the 747 many times and even got an opportunity to visit the flightdeck once during cruise. But no matter how many times I have experienced the queen, she never ceases to amaze me.

    I think all of us here and aviation enthusiasts around the world will always remember the legacy he left behind, every time we see the 747 take to the skies.

    Thank you Mr Sutter for giving us such an amazing aircraft. May you Rest In Peace.

    Agree 100%; 747 is still the most amazing aircraft ever built. Thank you Joe and "rest in peace".

    An interview with Joe on 748 debut!

    This keeps coming up every few years but I don't think it will ever see the light of day as there will be hardly any private interest in investment and state sponsership is unlikely given the current situation in Ukraine.

    Even the existing one flies only a couple of times a year which is enough to satisfy the heavy lift requirements so there is hardly a business case to build a second one.

    There could have been some hope if the Russians were interested; it was the Russian airforce IIRC who wanted the AN -124 line restarted, but all that is gone down the drain given the current state of affairs.

    Just seeing the FG article now Banu, hopefully this sees the light of day though it makes sense to restart the AN 124 line first

    Agreed. Nice article on FG which includes the other impacts Mr. Sutter had on Boeing and the aircraft industry in general.
