Hello world and welcome to the first of my cutaway blogs! As you may have already seen we have just launched the cutaway section of the Flightglobal.com archives project, if you have not seen it, then please feel free to visit at:
This cutaway section will slowly grow over the coming months to include almost all of the cutaways produced by Flight International, allow you to search the database for specific cutaways and to possible purchase them for either private use (screen savers or prints), right through to industrial, marketing and publishing purposes.
This is a mammoth undertaking for the department and one that has been on the cards for some time, but we have finally got there despite the heavy Farnborough workload during the first half of 2006. This month alone we will publish four cutaways over the RIAT and Farnborough airshows, a record-breaking run for Flight, with the 4th July Global Hawk, 11th July Boeing KC-767A, 18th July Embraer 195 and 25th July Bell Boeing MV-22B!
These Blogs will hopefully keep you informed of Flight's cutaway schedule, allow you to meet my team and also let you peak into the world of the Flight cutaway. We have many interesting cutaways and related projects in the pipeline at the moment, including at least three more planned for the later half of the year, including the Gulfstream G150 and Cessna Mustang for the NBAA show.
Attached is a photo of me on my visit to Cessna's Independence facility in April to inspect the Mustang (3rd prototype) for the planned cutaway in October.
In the meantime, we will continue to add to and perfect the cutaway site and hopefully answer some of your question.
