Short-haul flights are fine for window seats. Long-haul, eg Sydney to Europe, I opt for aisle seats, but never the middle always at the side, so at least I can see through a window that's not too far away.

The tech they use is out dated. They are currently seeking funding for a new manu plant. The tolerances demanded by the latest designs are beyond what they can achieve with what they now are using. They are hoping that military contracts will support a lender to invest.

I am 150% sure that the plane that they installed the engine on was a airbus. Why else would you go to france? Rolls-Royce also should use the same system volkswagen uses, a system which checks and double checks every screw, wire, and blade.

Great video. I worked in this plant oh so long ago. The Trent was just a dream. I worked the test cells with Conways, Avons and the latest, the Spey. Much water under the bridge since then.

Well it was British engineers that taught VW how to build cars after WW2. None of the German builders are perfect. Steyr comes close but no where near Toyota.

And to think, obama wants to make this a socialistic, communistic, marxist world, where everybody is the same. That destroys ingenuity, creativity, and the will to succeed. We would have none of the word's technology and innovation if this is allowed to prevail. As the Bible says, "the poor will always exist." Let's give them the opportunity to succeed and feel good about themselves and their country, not make them more dependent on government handouts, and live in squaller.

You need to get back on your meds!! You post is totally inappropriate, uninformed, ignorant and obnoxious (to say the least)! Right (or left) wing politics and or religion does NOT belong here. TAKE YOUR MEDS!!
rborlick
Can you keep your right-wing political views to yourself? This is a video about technology, you idiot.

Incidentally, for your information, Jesus said, "It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God." (Matthew 19:24).

Now there's a pair of them saying something useless, intellectually dishonest and insulting.

Spoken like a true intellectual.
