This is very cool.....
 
An Imgur user photographed Los Angeles International Airport from the same spot over an 8 hour period and made this crazy image.

+Allen Powers Very nice find.  Shows the differences in planes and sizes that take off at LAX everyday.

Unique paint jobs are very cool.
 
Japan Airlines 777-300ER JA731J 'Sky Eco' lands on Sydney's 34L at dawn. This aircraft only visited Sydney due to the unavailability of the usual 777-200ER. She is certainly a good looking aircraft.

Boring has designed a great wing that doesn't needed winglets. I expect overtime they will develop one for the older models.

Do you miss supersonic flight ? Would you pay a premium to fly it?
 
Supersonic travel to be resurrected for elite businesses ... Dvice -- "Once upon a time, travelers could fork over a few thousand extra dollars and lop off three hours of a trans-atlantic flight by hopping aboard a supersonic aircraft. Sadly, since the disasterous demise of the Concorde, passengers have had to make do with subsonic speeds. A new Boston-based aerospace company aims to fix that inconvenience, at least for the very rich.

Spike Aerospace has recently unveiled a concept aircraft that they believe will have the elite of the business world traveling in supersonic style. The S-512 is a small, 18-seat aircraft capable of cruising at mach 1.6 to 1.8. That's a little slower than the speeds achieved during the heyday of the Concorde, but it would still cut travel times in half for those monied enough to garner a seat.

Still in early development, the S-512 is being marketed as a private corporate airplane — one with a sticker price that could exceed $80 million. Eventually, Spike Aerospace plans on allowing customers to book individual berths on their planes, but not for a few years yet, as even the private aircraft aren't slated to hit the tarmac until 2018. Design challenges like getting the aircraft's sonic booms below FAA regulation requirements will likely take up much of the company's time until then.

The S-512 supersonic aircraft could begin taking reservations as early as next year, so if you're the type who really really needs to get to Europe a couple hours before the competition, get to searching under those corporate couch cushions. ..."

Can't help but think (and hope) technology will have some new Concorde that makes economic sense for most travellers at some point in future. She was the best of the best, so far ahead of her time. Did I mention I love Concorde? ;-)

An iconic aircraft that changed the face of international travel. Thank you Joe Suter the father of the B747!
 
45 years ago today, the first prototype Boeing 747 took the skies for the very first time

During my lifetime, I've been fortunate to fly on 747s many times and It remains one of my favorite aircraft. Sadly, by the time the 747 gets to 50, it may no longer be in production and the number of passenger versions in service will likely be dwindling fast. 

The current 747-8 has not sold well and Boeing has had to cut the production rate. Large twin-engine widebodies like 777 and Airbus A350 are so much more efficient that this pioneer aircraft is almost certainly entering the waning years of its service life.

Trust is a major key in personal and professional relationships #trust
 
Being trustworthy is an act of effective self-leadership.  Giving others a genuine opportunity to gain your trust even though they may falter, however, is an act of great leadership. http://wp.me/p339ZO-1Vf
