02/27/2014, Boeing is a company that many associate with aeroplanes, and rightfully so given that that is the company’s core competency. However Boeing has been making headlines as of late for something completely unrelated – smartphones. As you might recall earlier, a certain Boeing “Black” handset was spotted at the FCC, although at that time there was no official announcement from the company, at least until now where Boeing has officially […]
02/26/2014, They say that good things come to those who wait. I would suppose that should you happen to be an industry watcher where smartphones are concerned, you might have come across news that Boeing, the aviation giant, intends to make the jump into the world of smartphones. This is almost as “silly” as supercar manufacturer Koenigsegg teaming up with Razer to roll out a limited edition Razer Blade gaming laptop, […]
01/14/2014, The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is the company’s pride and joy, but this state of the art aircraft hasn’t been able to take to the skies without drama. Last year the plane was grounded globally for over four months after a series of battery related fires that warranted a redesign of the entire system. It appears that the Boeing 787 battery issues might have emerged once again. Earlier today a Japan Airlines […]
09/24/2013, Has the age of terminators arrived? It really depends on whose perspective you are looking from, as the folks over at Boeing have revealed that they successfully retrofitted one of their retired fighter jets – an F-16 in particular, transforming it into a drone. Now that is certainly a fearsome thought for the enemies, don’t you think so? One of the Lockheed Martin F-16 that is no longer in active […]
07/14/2013, An Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 787 Dreamliner caught fire at Heathrow Airport in London. It is unclear if the incident was caused by the plane's battery system, which has been the cause of previous fire related incidents.
06/18/2013, Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner was announced at the Paris Air Show today. It has a 20 foot stretch over the 787-9, which is in final assembly and is scheduled to make its first flight later this year.
06/12/2013, Airbus A350 XWB first flight may take off on Friday at Paris Air Show. Airbus has posted a teaser image which fuels speculation that the first flight is indeed headed toward the skies at one of the world's largest air shows.

05/13/2013, There is nothing quite like the military to push the boundaries of what is possible in the world of technology, and once again, there is a new air-breathing engine in town which could very well prove to be the baby step towards achieving Mach 20 planes – which would definitely allow it to fly beyond any suit that Tony Stark is capable of mustering. The ride in question that we […]
04/28/2013, Back in January Boeing’s latest airplane, the 787 Dreamliner, was grounded because of fire related incidents caused by its battery system. Last week the flight ban was finally lifted after nearly three months of the global fleet being grounded. On 27th April, Saturday that is, Ethiopian Airlines became the first airline to begin the first 787 Dreamliner commercial flight with paying passengers on board. This was the first commercial flight […]
04/25/2013, Boeing CEO said yesterday that he expects deliveries of the 787 Dreamliner to resume in mid-May. Only recently the Federal Aviation Authority had cleared the new battery system Boeing designed and had given the go-ahead to install said system on Dreamliner aircraft around the world. The 787 was grounded back in January after a series of fire related incidents caused by the battery system. Boeing successfully completed certification flight testing […]
04/24/2013, We’ve covered the whole Boeing 787 Dreamliner saga here. The jet was grounded earlier this year after its faulty battery system caused emergency landing of one flight and filling up of smoke in another. Since then Boeing has developed a new battery system, it has conducted flight certification tests, and only last week the FAA cleared its new battery system which will now be installed on Dreamliner planes that are […]
04/21/2013, It has been nearly four months since the Boeing 787 Dreamliner fleet was grounded due to troubles with its battery system. Overheating of the 787′s battery had lead to an emergency landing and an incident of smoke filling up in the cockpit. Since January, Boeing has been working on modifications for the battery system, which have now finally been approved by the Federal Aviation Authority. The certification testing for this […]
