Boeing just patented a jet engine powered by lasers and nuclear explosions Last week, the US Patent and Trademark Office approved an application from Boeing’s Robert Budica, James Herzberg, and Frank Chandler for a laser- and nuclear-driven airplane engine. With airplane makers constantly on the lookout for new and more efficient ways to power their products, this laser engine is the latest idea cooked up by the engineers at Boeing. Modern airliners such as the Boeing Dreamliner are powered by ...

A350 XWB MSN004 successfully undertakes water ingestion tests at Istres       Airbus has successfully performed certification testing to demonstrate the A350 XWB’s ability to operate on wet runways. During these tests at Istres, France, the flight-test aircraft, MSN004, travelled through troughs containing at least 22mm of water depth, at a variety of speeds, starting at 60kts, and successively increasing to around 140kts. This test validates how the aircraft would behave on a very rain-soaked ...

Lapses by pilots led to death of AI technician, investigators conclude     A major rostering lapse, which resulted in pilots reaching late for their flight by over an hour had resulted in the death of an Air India (AI) technician, who was sucked inside the aircraft engine at the Mumbai airport on December 16 last year, investigators have concluded. The technician, Ravi Subramanian, died on the spot — his limbs and head were shredded — as he stood with his back towards the aircraft without rea...

How does the control joystick in Airbus aircraft work?   What an easy intuitive and great way to fly that robust joystick is, called sidestick on the Airbus 320/330/340/350 and 380 models and submodels. The best thing is that it’s not in the way to install a stowable table in front of the pilots, which makes eating and doing paperwork in flight all the easier.  Hell, you can even have a flight attendant on your lap if you fancy a macho way of getting fired from your airline. Yet ther...

What happens when you don’t put your phone on airplane mode on an airplane?   Your phone will probably annoy a few pilots and air traffic controllers.  But, most likely, not badly enough for them to take action against you, if that’s what you want to know.     You may have heard that unpleasant noise from an audio system, that occasionally happens when a mobile phone is nearby (see also Coenraad Loubser’s answer).  A phone’s radio emissions can be very strong, up to 8W; they cause this noise du...

You might have some question like....   How can a jet engine work when it rains or snows? Wouldn't the water put out the flame inside? How is water removed from a jet engine in rainy conditions? Does rain or snow ingestion affect the efficiency of a jet engine? Answers are here...     As we know a jet engine works by compressing incoming air, mixing it with fuel, igniting that mixture, and exhausting the high-pressure gases to produce thrust. The initial compression is accomplished through a s...
