The good stuff at Asian Aerospace 2006

By Murray Bourne, 24 Feb 2006

It wasn't all about the military at Asian Aerospace today.

The Airbus A380 was there - an impressive piece of machinery:

And in the flesh, sporting the livery of Singapore Airlines (when SIA finally get one, it will be the world's first in service):

These guys were enjoying the airshow. The show didn't work all that well because there were not enough public address loud speakers around - so we didn't know what we were seeing.


This is the largest jet engine in the world, from GE:

HTML: You can use simple tags like <b>, <a href="...">, etc.

To enter math, you can can either:

  1. Use simple calculator-like input in the following format (surround your math in backticks, or qq on tablet or phone):
    `a^2 = sqrt(b^2 + c^2)`
    (See more on ASCIIMath syntax); or
  2. Use simple LaTeX in the following format. Surround your math with \( and \).
    \( \int g dx = \sqrt{\frac{a}{b}} \)
    (This is standard simple LaTeX.)

NOTE: You can mix both types of math entry in your comment.
