  • Endangered species: Our Top 10 rare military aircraft

    News | 05 Dec 2014 15:07 | Craig Hoyle

    ​Ahead of the publication of our annual World Air Forces directory, our Top 10 feature looks at some of the rarest aircraft still to be found in active military service around the globe. The selection draws on just some of the data contained within our global fleet listing, which details the almost 52,000 combat, special mission, tanker and transport aircraft, combat helicopters and training types currently in use across 160 nations. To make it more of a challenge, we have intentionally excluded nationally developed aircraft or type variants (for example the Denel Rooivalk attack helicopter) which have not been exported for use in other countries.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Endangered-species-Our-Top-10-rare-military-aircraft-406806/

  • ANALYSIS: The impact of DC-10 and MD-11 on aviation

    News | 05 Dec 2014 10:57 | James Mellon

    ​All journeys on a passenger jet these days will be on a type that has two, or occasionally four, engines. This year marked the end of the era of the three-engine airliner and, with it, the presence in the flight schedules of a once powerful manufacturer. In a remarkable coincidence, the final scheduled passenger services of both the McDonnell Douglas DC-10 and its successor, the MD-11, took place in 2014, with Biman Bangladesh and KLM, respectively, retiring their last examples.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-The-impact-of-DC-10-and-MD-11-on-aviation-406735/
