    This is cool... a student looked at the A380 landing gear door automation and had to tweak it for class. Read the description.

    A former Boeing 707 that operated for Lufthansa back in the day is now expected to be scrapped. The aircraft which was a museum piece at one point in its after commercial service life is now on the chopping block for scrap. Some of its parts are expected to be saved or auctioned off. The registration is D-ABOC and would now represent two ex Lufthansa Boeing 707s being destroyed, the other being D-ABOD. There are not many of these aircraft around anymore and perhaps few airports have them at an airport still. One of those aircraft has been at Hamburg Airport since 1999.

    We are hearing about the Airlander again. This time it has to do with a collaboration between Hybrid Air Vehicles and RED Aircraft who will be providing the technology to power the Airlander 10. The RED A03 engines will be used in the base configuration of the aircraft, using four of its ultra-efficient piston engines. Airlander 10 is set to deliver up to a 75% reduction in emissions over comparable aircraft in similar roles. James Bell, Programmes Director, said: "Our relationship with RED Aircraft is built on the common purpose of delivering efficiency in flight. RED Aircraft work to the high standards we require of our trusted suppliers, allowing us to bring our low emissions aircraft to market from 2025."
