787 Dreamliner

Here is a sensational video of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner Paris Airshow rehearsal, this aircraft is powered by the General Electric GEnx-1b. 
The GEnx offers 15 percent better fuel burn than the CF-6 it was designed to replace, Key technologies that make this happen are the new high pressure compressor, the twin annular pre swirl combustor and the use of lightweight  and durable composite materiel throughout. The GEnx is the fist jet engine to have both front fan case and fan blades made of composite material. The GEnx is the quietest engine that we have produced.

Shameless plug, I'm in charge of the team that produces the large spool the core of the engine

F-15 Silent Eagle South Korea Pitch

This is what the the USAF needs  to order yesterday and kill off the Allied World Air Force killer the F-35.
The silent Eagle offers many advantages since pure stealth is becoming a zero sum game with new multi-band AESA radars and new technology IRST coming on line. For the USAF there is already a robust infrastructure in place to include the Depot at Warner Robbins, GA.

The F-15's legendary performance combined with the new technology offered in the Silent Eagle will give the air war commander many options not available with the F-35. Little things like range, speed, payload, duel engine capability, a second crew member ect. I could go on but why bother.

Bottom line any decision by the politicians and the Air Staff that does not include recapitalizing the Tactical Air Forces with F-15 Silent Eagle will prove once again that they are corrupt and without ethics. For the Air Staff it points to a complete lack of integrity and leadership.
