April 1st will mark the first day all Northwest Airlines staff has to wear the new Delta uniform. To remember the great history of Northwest, during the next week March 23 – 29 flight attendants are asked to participate in the retro uniform week to wear their vintage uniforms from the 80s or maybe even the 70s.
Unfortunately we’ll see those vintage uniforms on flights within the United States only. Wearing retro uniforms on international flights is prohibited by Northwest because of international security restrictions.
So, if you’re flying Northwest Airlines within the US over the coming week, keep your eyes peeled for the flight attendants and maybe share some photos. 🙂
The “roadable aircraft” called “Transition” successfully did its first flight earlier this month. The light plane built by a company called Terrafugia Inc., is designed to change configurations, enabling it to operate as a traditional vehicle on public roads. The plane can carry two people plus luggage and will operate within a range of 100 to 500 miles (800 km), on a single tank of premium unleaded gas.
Always staring at the same desktop wallpaper gets pretty boring over time. I decided to create a desktop wallpaper from one of my own A380 photos. If you like it, you can download this wallpaper below.
To fit anybody’s needs I made it available in many different sizes. Just choose the right file, depending on your screen resolution.
Again someone tries to build a “flying car”. A company called Terrafugia Inc., located in the state of Massachusetts, is building the so called “Transition”, a roadable aircraft. The light plane is designed to change configurations, enabling it to operate as a traditional vehicle on public roads. The plane will be capable of flying at 115 miles per hour – in car mode top speed will be 70 to 80 miles per hour.
The “Transition” can carry two people plus luggage and will operate within a range of 100 to 500 miles (800 km), on a single tank of premium unleaded gas .
The estimated purchase price is $148,000. They’re planning test flights later this year.
The company’s CEO said, the design of the Terrafugia vehicle will address some of the problems that pilots encounter when they try to use their aircraft for actual travel, as opposed to weekend sightseeing. When they encounter bad weather in the Transition, they can simply land at the nearest airport and continue their journey on the road.
I’ve ever wondered how the rich and well-heeled may travel and how the premium lounges actually look inside. Malaysia Airlines provided some shots from inside the Malaysia Airlines Golden Lounge at Kuala Lumpur KLIA (KUL).
Have you ever dreamed of living in an airliner? Soon you can book your own room in the world’s first Jumbo Hostel, located at Stockholm International Airport, Stockholm-Arlanda (ARN), Sweden.
The Boeing 747-200 at last operated by Transjet offers 25 rooms with 85 beds in total. One highlight will be the Cockpit Suite – the cockpit has been converted into a deluxe suite with parts of the original interior saved.
