The FAA wants to bring the aviation industry into the 21st century, and one particularly terrifying area of their research, announced today, is the possibility of commercial planes that fly themselves. What could go wrong, besides just about everything? More

This is Thomas Salme , a maintenance engineer who became a Boeing 737 pilot by flying a few nights in a flight simulator and printing a fake airliner pilot license. Amazingly enough, he flew passengers for thirteen years without any incidents. More

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner has to withstand 150% of its wing’s load limit for three seconds. It looks like the upcoming airliner can handle the stress just fine.

The attempted bombing of Flight 253 last Christmas was thwarted by passengers, thankfully. But what if he had been able to get the bomb detonated? Not what you’d expect, actually. The BBC did a test on an old decomissioned 747, putting a dummy with the same type and amount of explosives found on the underwear bomber.

Titanium iPhone Is Cool, Too Bad It’s Not Real [Concept]

I like the idea of this titanium iPhone body replacement, and that’s why it’s too bad is just a nice hyper-realistic 3D render. The fact is that, despite what the student who made it claims, it’s not real. Not only the manufacturing of custom large titanium parts like this is an extremely expensive and complex process, reserved only to aerospace companies, large-scale manufacturing, or people with more money than a student, but there is not such a thing as a “special titanium alloy that is RF transparent.” Titanium makes radio signal reception and emission very difficult
