Uhh… the Concorde crash was in Paris, not Chicago. From what i remember it was a piece of metal that fell off a plane that took off prior to the com Concorde.

Edit: found this

Five minutes before the Concorde departed, a Continental Airlines McDonnell Douglas DC-10 took off from the same runway for Newark Liberty International Airport and lost a titanium alloy strip that was part of the engine cowl, identified as a wear strip about 435 millimetres (17.1 in) long, 29 to 34 millimetres (1.1 to 1.3 in) wide, and 1.4 millimetres (0.055 in) thick.

Okay… let’s not turn this into a fact war instead of funny stories :)


#1813

My friend mason thinks a Boeing 747 is a 737.


#1814

No, I mean the dc-10 was in Paris, the Chicago one was other crash, a compleately different one!


#1815

Okay… sorry


#1816

Ah ok, thanks for clarifying :)


#1817

They can’t be serious.


#1818

Hahahahaha

Wait…what…

#1819

Good choice


#1820

The reason that the insults are a problem is that you choose to let them affect you. When soueone says “ hey you like planes 😏” just say “thanks”


#1821

That’ll be quite the comfy ride…if you can even make it out of Asia 🤦


#1822

Lol that would be interesting!


#1823

I just found this on a calendar that I picked up from The Airplane Shop earlier this month:


Please make it stop 😐😐


#1825

This, now this is just sad.


#1826

That plane doesn’t even have “Air India” transliterated into Hindi, and Air India has only Airbuses and Boeings. Wonder why they used photoshop and not an actual picture.


#1827

Air India has Turbo props as well.


#1828

Meanwhile a Flybe Q400 is going past on approach

Friend: Hey look at that jet up there…


#1829

It’s says something like “Ethais Air”…like wut.

And yea like @Goran12 said, they’ve got some ATRs

Not really as much of a story as it is a picture, but I got this new book, and on the cover, there is some weird Delta A380 with GEs that is without a second floor.
