hey everyone.. i was clicking through Boeing's site when I came across this page announcing another addition to the 747 family!!

here's the link and a computer rendition of what it'd look like Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

http://www.boeing.com/commercial/747family/747-8_facts.html

could this be Boeing's "answer" to the A380?? it mentions the A380 a lot on that page on that link above Shocked

also.. can't wait for that 787! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

--- Your going off topic, and this is not the forum to do it guys ---

Personally, I find the 748 to be a beautiful aircraft, and I'm waiting eagerly to see the results of the 748 vs. a380 in the skies

no no i wasnt directing that at you tailhook, lol

and yes crosscheck.. that's what i was trying to avoid by putting

i wasn't trying to provoke another "boeing vs. airbus" thread here..

in there... Laughing Wink

i agree with you crosscheck.. there will be some true competition in the skies between the A380 and the 748.

my opinion is that the 748 will make more profit because airlines will feel more comfortable buying an aircraft that has already proven itself in the world of commercial aviation... whereas the A380 is a "whole new frontier"

..those cost efficiency numbers on the 748 fact page look pretty convincing too... Wink

but of course.. as i've always stated, and continue to believe:
i support both boeing and airbus alike.. i don't play favorites

The 'debate' Boeing vs. Airbus is and has been off topic for years. If it has any place in a flightsim forum, it should be banished to where it belongs: The Off Topic Forum.

If you want to discuss the new 748 in the aircraft forum - fine. If you want to discuss the A-380 in the aircraft forum - fine.

But the endless tug-o-war between Airbus and Boeing borders on the inane and has no place here.

yeh the 800 looks awesome. i read about it a while ago, i think they are using the same wing design and engine technology as the 787 to produce a much more fficient aircraft. i also read it's not doing too well with pre-orders.

You haven't got a clue what this is all about, have you?
I've been re-reading the whole thread several times (I very much doubt you have) and I still can't find the joke.
