    There are so many significant new aircraft developments and so much aircraft specific discussion in several Fora that it seems it would be a good idea to have a Forum (or sub-forum to Travel technology, perhaps) dedicated to the subject:
    Just think what is happening now and in the near future:
    1. A380
    2. B747-8
    3. B777-300ER (OK not new but getting lots of attention)
    4. B787
    5. CS100/CS300
    6. A350
    7. A320NEO
    8. B737MAX
    9. B777X
    10. new generation ATR
    11. Sukhoi 100
    and on and on including Comac, probable new supersonic projects...

    We need a place for us to speculate, dream and opine, do we not?

    I'm no old yeet, but I'd be interested in an aircraft forum. I might also include threads about the Boeing and Airbus assembly plants, visiting Boeing, maybe various aircraft museums such as the Museum of Flight near SEA, etc.

    Then you need to include:
    • Boeing Stratocruiser
    • Lockheed Constellation
    • De Havilland Comet
    • Douglas DC-2
    • Ford Trimotor
    • Boeing 247

    And many more, which we'll certainly do when we have the forum. We'll show the first FBW commercial transport, and the newest one too, the B787.
