I agree with you my dear Blockhaj,

I think they were a real Projects,and not only tested Models.

Thank you for the Info my dear Schneiderman,

and also in the same year at the Spec. 21/28 for Mail Carrying Aircraft,Fairey submitted
a proposal,maybe based on a known design ?.

You know, I keep saying the same thing about the 380 since years (15?). 

The exactly same arguments can be read today everywhere around the prof press. So, see it like you want but let the reader (which I am part of) enjoy this forum past the personal rants. Thank you.

First paragraph!: Let's be reasonable, nobody has any interest in reading this here. It's an aviation forum.

Indeed, what does Freud have to do here ?

Also, shrink and psychology is not in anyway relegated to the mentally-ill people.

Oh , I take my pills thanks.

There was one full page of mockery and insinuation.

Poor thing… But you know, you showed your great engine/airframe interaction history knowledge, that you wanted us to learn. People get the love they deserve.


That was worth to me a single sentence, especially given the underlying emotional contend of that specific reply.

Indeed, the kind of short sentence from "emotionally touched" person…
But in fact do prefer short posts from your part, more restful.

Any engineer is primarily legally bound by his/her own responsibility.

Yes (sigh), if only it was the same of "experts" posting BS on forums.
Ok, enough for me. I'll leave you what seems to be very important to you, the last word (sure it'll be fun, you like digging). I won't answer , cause we don't want to turn this nice place into another KeyPub forum, don't we.

Nobody is "Bullying" airbus, we are simply arguing that with two different brand of engines failing, the airframe can't be white-washed like that.

You keep using emotive language like 'white washed', and 'absence of fact', to denigrate the opinion of people who've actually worked on this stuff. And now you've resorted to ableism to attack the people disagreeing with you by implying they are mentally ill.

A common mode failure requires that the systems in which failures occurred actually have common designs/structures up to the point at which the failures occur. But as Aeroengineer1 pointed out, the pylon/nacelle complex is specific to the engine (and generally designed by the engine manufacturers), which means the airframe (and airflow) is not common up to the point at which the failure occurs.

also in Spec. 20/28 for civil transport flying boat,Fairey submitted unknown Proposal,
any idea ?.

I think that it is unlikely that Fairey submitted a formal tender to this specification. The company had never built a flying boat hull, had no experience in metal skin construction and their only coastal works at Hamble was set up for testing seaplanes and had no production capability.  With four capable flying boat constructors in Britain, all producing metal hulls, Fairey would have known that they had no chance of winning a contract.

My suspicion is that they are just test models to get a better understanding of similar planes. But the jet plane looks nothing like any jet plane that was known at the time. The engines also seems to be fitted for ease of replacement considering that jets at the time has very short lifespans. The engines looks very similar to the stal skuten too.

Are any of the SpaceX rockets human-rated yet?

Not yet.

I should clarify that my annoyance isn't with BO.  They're doing good and interesting work.  It's with reporters and headline writers who say things like "Step aside, SpaceX" when BO is doing something SpaceX has done many times already and under harder conditions.
