Well for the past five years boeing has been working on a new jet that they are going to make out of a mixture of carbon fiber and plastic. They have sold 800 of these gems before the have even done a test flight, nor are they able to get enough bolts to put them together. Now to me this sounds a little sketchy so my question to you is would you ride in this new piece of technology that is supposedly going to lower the cost of flying by one percent each year? Also if anyone has any articles on this post them up because I am kind of interested and others my find them to be interesting as well.

Well when they first unvailed the jet they didn't even have it completely put together also even if they do a test flight that won't mean that something won't go wrong farther down the line. As for usaf if you don't like it don't post there are many other threads on here so go to one of them.

Yes I suppose you can but being irrelevant and not making a good point makes you a jack ass. I simply asked a yes or no question and you were to dumb to answer it, it's a good thing our country wasn't at war while you were still fighting for us.

We haven't been in a state of combat for 5 and a half years?  Tell that to any of the guys that have flown sorties with me.

Actually there are alot of carbon fiber aircraft out there, and it makes for a stronger and better aircraft than steel.

Here is an example of one company that manufactures carbon fiber aircraft fusalages. There are many more companys, but I don't have alot of time to find them, sorry.

The new F-35 is made of carbon fibre reinforced plastic, and it took Bruce Willis to take one of those down. The F-22 is largely carbon fibre and composite as well.

Yeah, I'd fly in something made of carbon fibre. It's more durable than aluminum.

Incidentally, carbon fibre is currently in a critical worldwide shortage because of the aerospace industry. A lot of other industries are under huge pressure because their raw materials aren't available.
