Put it in as a link rather than a screenshot, take off at 1:07 or thereabouts.

I'm not getting into the whole Airbus vs Boeing thing, this is another great example of Engineering.

I read a claim (not sure if true) that the Engine diameter is larger or the same as a fuselage on a 737.

That is 1 hour 7 minutes into the video, not 1min 7 seconds. Must be using a BA pilot!

They will be doing a landing test in a couple of weeks.

I did see something interesting, the engines....

They are huge! something like 11 feet in diameter and they are mounted ahead of the wings, not underneath, similar to the new 737...

That's a scary thought.

I did not imply that the bird was badly designed, but to point out that the 737 engine placement was not the root cause for its problems.

In the past, we have engine(s) mounted in the tail, nose, above the wings and in back of the cockpit and none had stability problems.

It was the root cause.

737 no stability issues.

They moved the engines without other redesign (expensive).

They then expected the computer program to compensate for new instability. They stiil think they can fix a bad design with a computer program fix.
