have been trying to find a way to accommodate Airbus's giant
A340-600 stretch, given the airport's older taxiway system. The

The Luscombe Endowment along with Classic Aero Support (CAS),

Boeing is bullish on the Dreamliner. Speaking with the news
service Reuters during a trip to Israel, Commercial Aircraft

"The proposals originated in the European Parliament where we
had the sorry spectacle of politicians trying to decide what hours
should be flown and when. They came to a shoddy compromise which is
unsafe, unsound, and impractical. The fact is that science has been
shut out. The views of experts in the field were neither sought nor
