Yet it can be hard to convince airline management that the cost-benefit analysis justifies the major investments to make their computer systems truly fail-safe, said Edwards, the former United chief information officer. plans to conduct a series of progressively higher-altitude drop tests of its Dream Chaser spacecraft following the successful completion of the flight at NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center, in Edwards, California....More Emirates placed a surprise large order for the Boeing 787-10 on the opening day of the Dubai Airshow, but negotiations about a similarly sized commitment for more Airbus A380s were continuing with no announcement expected until at least Monday....
