Fresh update on "dubai" discussed on Coronavirus Daily
"NPR's Mike. Elaine do cliff. For months now, health officials in Hong Kong have meticulously tested contract all passengers who land in the city. So they know which passengers boarded a plane infected with cove nineteen and whether or not the infected anyone else. David Friedman is an infectious disease doctor at the University of Alabama. At Birmingham he's been analyzing this data with a specific focus on one airline Emirates Airlines where since about April they've had very very rich masking emerets not only requires masks but ensures passengers wear them. Friedman. Examined the airlines flights to Hong Kong, in June and July what he found is telling. During that time Emirates had five flights with at least seven infected people on board and yet on off I flights no one else onboard got infected. Those are flights that you should be high risk and where there was no transmission on another flight at a Dubai Twenty, seven infected people boarded a single plane for an eight hour trip. Guess how many other passengers got sick there Appears to have been to invite transmissions to Friedman says that without the masks he would have expected many more cases. In fact, scientists have not documented one super spreading event on a plane since airlines began to require masks together all this suggests masks are working. There's encouraging evidence from a number of flights that masking does helped greatly, but it would be nice to study at better. If, feel like the risk on the plane with masks is low, the circumstantial evidence is that risk is low if you have Richard Masking in that last part is key to keep the risk low on planes. Everyone needs to keep the mask on the entire flight why Lindsey Mar? At Virginia Texas Plains have excellent air ventilation systems which can remove corona virus particles from the air about every six minutes. So the only opportunity to be the virus that's in the air as if it gets to you before it goes through. That ventilation system, and so that's only going to happen if you're sitting close to the person who's sick because of planes ventilation systems, your risk comes almost entirely from the people sitting around you. That risk is lower when they have on masks. If someone is sick, they could be releasing virus into the air, the mask blogs that it prevents the virus from getting out in droplets and aerosols. A mask also reduces how much virus breathe then and it stops big drops spit from hitting your mouth and nose for these reasons Marseille's. Flies, she carefully chooses which mass to where if I'm flying I use my best mask. It has a couple of layers of hupa filters that remove more than ninety nine percent of articles on the plane I want the best there is to if you have access to an in ninety five mask or even a P. One, hundred respirator use that just make sure it fits properly in keep in mind it doesn't protect your eyes though. So this is where you might WANNA consider wearing a facial or goggles or some other kind of protection also remember to keep surfaces around you clean, avoid touching your face and be quiet. When we talk, we can admit ten times more virus particles than when we're silent. Finally Friedman says, don't forget to wear a mask in socially distance throughout the whole travel process including well boarding and exiting the plane I mean you can control people getting on getting office just because everybody rushes off..
Saudi Arabia to Host $500,000 Dota 2 League Tournament
"Next thing is also tournament related. This one came out of nowhere. I don't even know what to think so. The Saudi Federation for Electronic, an intellectual sports will be running a five hundred thousand dollar tournament I believe it was at two million ri-als which is equivalent to five hundred, thousand dollars. Between the months of October ninth and December thirty first. This is out of. So. I've obviously had some history Saudi Arabia you know having grown up there and whatnot. So I always have like this. I don't know if affinity is the right word but I root on people that are of Middle Eastern descent when they're playing because it's such a small minority, right? So like Is, basically, collect a collective of a bunch of Middle Eastern people. I don't know anybody like anybody that plays from Saudi Arabia I duNno Saudi Arabia even recognize owed to. Strange. So. So this tournament just to be clear is for Saudi. Arabian players only. Yeah. It's not for the Middle East in general and just called the Saudi Arabian leak. Like it doesn't. Article that we've read what the limitations are for entry. Does five, hundred thousand dollars professional teams of Saudi Arabia region region. Was the Saudi Arabia region as an Saudi Arabia or The middle region maybe it's a sad writing I don't know it. So it could mean a multiple think if it's Middle Eastern, they would have said Middle Eastern. But if it's Saudi Arabian, it could it could mean like some of the countries like around like you know like, Yemen or like Dubai, for example, is probably the most popular eastport area in that region. but I believe five hundred thousand dollars is split between Doda and two other games that they haven't announced yet. But either way that's a shit ton of money Fika? I think is one of them actually. But really out of nowhere. And very interesting. I'M GONNA keep my eye on this one for sure. So it says eight best professional teams of Saudi Arabia region will be competing in the first tournament of the event. So I'm guessing that's And Those eight teams of Saudi Arabia, who are they? What are the best teams in Saudi Arabia? Doda. If United Radio in players, there's not. Yeah I mean it's definitely not a top tier tournament by any means, but is it even to your three? No there's. Player quality I know. I'm trying to think about their some players that might be Saudi Arabia that actually immortal but I'm not sure if they are. I don't think so. It really doesn't sound familiar. So. You'd know better than me. But I've never heard of even one team being Saudi Arabian before so. Question is if these professional teams of Saudi Arabia are allowed to take place from the other regions? That's what I'm looking at here because I know quite a few players from the Middle East that are very high Mr. so if it wasn't Saudi only, you could see some familiar faces in this tournament like for example, offer Moosh or manage or of course. Some of the players from `Nigma if they got into this Yeah. But considering `Nigma haven't announced anything about it. We're going to they're not playing it either because they didn't choose to or because they weren't allowed to I want to say the country that's produced the most players that I've consistently heard of his Jordan would you agree with that from the middle of? The most players you've heard about yeah, which does China, but I don't know if the Middle East Oh. Yeah. For sure I Jordan is the hot spot forever, and that's not that far from Saudi. Arabia? So Yeah. So who who have you heard from Jordan? Miracle. Is One. WHO's the other guy? Might just two people honestly I yep. Sore and maybe there's words we're actually. But even three would be more than any other middle. Eastern. Region because what is G. H. is Lebanon. Lebanese and then. We is. Between Syrian Romanian I consider him Syrian but I know he doesn't because I actually didn't know I thought he was just Flat out the first time I talked with him. I knew he was Middle Eastern right away. Is based on his accent. But, yeah. But yeah, it's really cool to have players in that region and We'll see what the future holds. This is out of nowhere. So I don't know how to react honestly. No, it's been so little promoted. The fact that this article came out after the tournament began it's Kinda. Interesting I, don't know that's true. I forgot it was even October now Jesus. Yeah. The. Going in some capacity, but we just don't know the stretcher.
Talking Arab-Israeli Peace with Acting Consul General Israel Nitzan
"Israel needs on is a veteran. Israeli. Diplomat who has served in a diverse array of postings from Egypt to the UN to his current role as Israel's acting consul general in New York. There's been a lot of news out of Israel lately and Acting Consul General Nitzan joins us now to help us break it down and to share his country's view Israel. Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you very much. Now we wanted to have. You on this week in particular because Israel has brand new diplomatic ties with the UAE and bunkering and you are one of the relatively few Israeli diplomats who actually already has experience representing Israel in an Arab country what do you think actual practical on the ground peace with the in both rain might look like is it going to be similar to the Israel Egypt relationship that you know up close or is it going to be something totally different? Of. All I. think that it is different. This agreement is an important milestone region undermine stolen today in our Middle East. So we strategically and regionally, it strengthens our actually formalize ties within our relationship with very important regional glares in the Arab. Gulf. Sunni Arab countries who first of all perceived a threat posed by Iran we showed the perception of the threat posed by Iran and we agree also on the ways to address this threats basically I think that in the last few weeks I, think that both Israel and needs Sunni Arab neighbors in the Gulf called on the International. Community to continue in the maximum pressure on Iran. So this is at least from this angle. Secondly, you mentioned Egypt and I think that in many ways yes it is going to be a different kind of beast i. think it seems that is much warmer piece. I think that the key to peace in our region is encouraging more and more people to people engagement, and this is what we've seen in the last few weeks when people from the Gulf on social media, it seems clear that there are thrilled about the relationship very excited, actually encouraging and initiating a dialogue with Israelis This is great and I think that this is the key to any future of peace in our region especially with our neighbors that people people engagement is so key and it's so interesting. I mean Israel has had peace with Jordan for. Twenty Five Years Twenty six years peace with Egypt for even longer there's a little bit of Sinai tourism but like it's not a thing for Israelis to you know drive to Amman for lunch right? Do you think Israelis are going to fly to Dubai? Abu Dhabi. Fly to Montana and kind of explore the Arab, Gulf. I think definitely, yes. Of course, we are in a different reality to covid nineteen but I think that the expectation is already an ongoing dialogue between Israelis and moralities over zoom Israeli universities, research centres startups have already reached out and initiated this very important dialogue with their colleagues into golf. They'll talking about basically using our innovative meaning both Israel and the UAE innovative spirit. You know the the needs of people and I think that this is also one thing that is clear that the idea here in this piece that we prioritize both Israel in the UAE, prioritize the needs. Of their people and this is the first step you know to promote the regional peace no. As we said, there is an ongoing dialogue between the peoples between Israeli civil society between startups between companies in Israel I. think that You you mentioned my experience in Egypt and I think that what? I know from my experience in Egypt, the pieces for our job I need must be nurtured, and in many ways, the key to everything is education especially educating the younger generation basically educating them to accept the other two except the different to accept Israel as a legitimate neighbor. In many ways, I, think that the secret to success of any peace in our region will be found in the media and the textbooks, and basically these two means educating people today first of all in the media forming an encouraging public opinion supportive of peace. And also the textbooks educating the leaders of tomorrow through schools, universities, and basically educating them about accepting the other accepting Israel as a neighbor as A. Member neighbor-.

Jetpack over LA: Fact or Fiction?
"Saw reference to this on twitter yesterday too. And so people I don't know what we're David. You know we're talking about here. Breath. So there are reports from airline pilots apparently, there are reports line pilots are saying this. I don't know if I've actually heard an airline airline pilot reporting but that that while on on the approach to lax, I think yesterday. They saw quote unquote a guy in a jet pack at altitude. And it's like. It's twenty twenty innings possible. I mean just right but. What have you heard anything that makes you think this could be real. It's twenty twenty anything anything can happen. Ain't that the truth well back that they seem to have gotten. Audio from. The aircraft in. The Tower. Off. Of a presumed Pasco site. that. Would lend a little credence to the to the story. If you know from a live ATC. I didn't bother to click on the links here to to you know I'm just doing the local TV stations. This is from. The war zone actually from the drive DOT COM, they're they're section called the warzone airline pilots landing at LAX report quote a guy in a jet pack unquote flying alongside them It's like, okay This was some guy in a Moonie. Okay. Yeah. Maybe not but according to this news report there's three different airliners. We just passed a guy. No jetpack. And this was. According to according to the tower tower transmission made on the frequency. To jet, blue twenty-three use caution a person in jetpack reported three hundred yards south of the La final at about three thousand feet ten mile final. That's a little segment audio. Save so suddenly. That's so now is this a do we? I don't know what kind of jetpack. Yeah. That's my question is it a? Is it a sort of a James Bond type of jet pack or is it these more recent guys who were jet? Wing? And fought. Because that's the pictures that they've. Looked down lower in the story as an example, they're not saying this is the incident. But there showing other showing. Images, they have of. Of this is the jet man the. Jet called free also but yeah. Rossi's jet man that's that's yeah. emerets did a thing a stunt I don't WANNA call. It was a promotion. That's true. Three four years ago. Where they had this guy, the jet man fly in formation with I. Don't know if it was a three eighty or trip seven but. The image. Here is a four engine I'd say it's a three eighty. Three. Right. He's He's got about half flaps. Put Slow flight in your book right over the top of Dubai and with two of these these jetpack guys. It's hard to tell from the image. But. It looks like they're a good five well, good couple of hundred feet. Above to the left of this three eighty. Is the Radio Tower American nine, hundred and ninety seven. We just passed a guy in a jet pack and our says, American. Nine, hundred seven. Okay. Thank you. Okay well, this is like off to talk to one seventy, two Andrew. This is he he flies overhead lax more or less daily going to and from work. And I'll have to see what he knows about this sky with must have been. Like A shorts three, sixty or something he's like because he says, we just saw the guy passing bias in the jetpack. So I don't know if he could be going the other way but. The JAMPAKHAO, ran this guy whistling. That's embarrassing. Yeah. That's I mean it's gotTa. Be a turtle prop. No RJ captain in there and self respecting RJ captain would fly that slump. Well he's on he's on vinyl. Still doing. You Know Buck Forty Bucks Sixty. Okay well. But I'm sure jetpack guys go faster than one, hundred and forty. Meter not at least. Once. All right well. You know we're we're obviously interested in more evidence. Yes. Yes. We want to hear more accounts of this and I will check in with one seventy two drew just because he's plugged into that community in Long Beach a lot. So where the he may have some some behind the scenes information about what happened over the. Thing that jumps out at me here. Is that. If he's on final. For La. At three thousand feet and ten miles out. It has to be something like Rossi's jetpack because none of the other stuff go ten miles. Right, I wouldn't think that the James Bond if there is even a flying James Bond jetpack these days I, don't know and that was the only good for. Thirty seconds. And that's when I first heard and the first the first report of this I saw on twitter was accompanied by a picture of that jet pack in the Air Right and I thought I sort of thought it was an actual picture which I don't think you now in retrospect that it was but. anyways. So all right. Well I don't know whether we'll learn more about this or not. But when I first heard about this, if saw this whatever was I, thought it was one of those. Fan like a fan driven. Jet. Packs Ah. Some some people have taken to putting just like you do a drone use a lot of motors. They, they've created some some contraptions that that have motors and turn small productive propellers basically -ducted fans. And get off the ground and get off. But basically, it's like a helicopter. So it's Ok off the ground but I don't think they have the altitude duration or speed to do this well. We know that they did it very long. So it did it. They did it for three or four minutes? Three or four different arrivals. So yeah. Yeah. Three or four three different arrivals and figure they're spaced about a minute apart Hey. Okay.
Netanyahu and UAE, Bahrain foreign ministers ink peace deal in White House ceremony
"Prime. Minister Benjamin. Netanyahu is set to sewing agreements with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain in an official ceremony. The White House today establishing full relations between Israel and the two Gulf states the in Bahrain will be the third and fourth Arab states to normalize ties with Israel following peace treaty signed with Egypt in Nineteen, seventy, nine and Jordan in one, thousand, nine, hundred, four as captain. That some journalist for Herat's joins us on the line now for more alison good afternoon to you. Thanks for being with us a a momentous day. I guess potentially Tell us what the story is though behind this story if you like for the Gulf States is this about? Is this about trade? Do we know more about what the sort of strategic alliance is really going to look like? Well, the clear motivation for these Gulf states in taking their relationship with Israel out of the closet because people who live in Israel and especially in the business community here know that there have been you know practical economic ties between the Gulf states you a and and buffering literally for for decades. So this is more of a public declaration than it is some sort of new development or arrangement, but the primary. Motivator everyone knows is the common interests that Israel and the Gulf states have in encountering the UH, the aggression, the the posturing of Iran. The the enemy of my enemy is my friend dynamic and and the Gulf states with the strong encouragement of the trump administration and the white. House have convinced the states to move beyond the position that the Palestinian issue is is more important than their common strategic interests with Israel. Well, that was going to be my next question, which is, where does this leave? Iran did you think to a degree to Horon has been somewhat wrong-footed by this How'd you think? No be be responding what are we hearing? Well. They can't have completely expected it. We haven't heard a lot of loud noises out of Iran strategically. The United States is trying to engineer and what Israel is also hoping is to line up enough of the Arab world on the side of a reconciliation conciliation with Israel as to leave Iran relatively isolated and Iran so goes the proposition won't be able to survive as a completely isolated player in the in the Arab world. So we haven't heard a lot out of Iran except for the general denunciations but we'll probably be hearing a lot once this the. Ceremony is done and you know reminder there's no details yet of the content of what this declaration is going to be at the White House today on both sides it's been hush hush. So we have absolutely no idea what is going to be said, what is going to be declared so you know on both sides on the left and on the right on the Israeli right in the Arab world, we may be in for considerable amount of reaction and criticism. Once we actually know what's inside. You mentioned Palestinians just briefly earlier and it's been interesting to see this been this fairly established long standing consensus I suppose on the Arab side that you know you you couldn't have normalized relations with Israel that was viewed by many as as something of a prerequisite for for for Palestinian independence I don't if you necessarily go along with that reading but. Palestinians feel well, certainly aggrieved you. We read the word betrayal in some in some statements. Do you think that's the correct way to look at the the Palestinian position? That's definitely the way that to look at the Palestinian position. They feel betrayed by their their brothers in the Arab world. But remember you know this isn't exactly new. They have much closer neighbors and connections with the the countries of Jordan and Egypt choose the WHO's peace accords who's state of non hostility with Israel is also longstanding. So this isn't unique in the Arab world to to prioritize making peace with Israel in and turning towards the West as. A way of of of improving their economic in their domestic concerns and you know more and more I think these countries especially in some of these you know autocracies in the Gulf states they look internally and they look at their own stability and they say, you know we have to protect ourselves. We have to worry about ourselves more than we We worry about the Palestinian people vote is definitely a blow to the Palestinian cause. The Israelis and the Americans are hoping that this will. Soften the Palestinians and make them more amenable to to compromise in in potential negotiations with Israel. From the Israeli side. Then tell us a bit about some of the conversations. Your your having clearly is something that was expedient from a business point of view. It's expedient strategically as you mentioned because of the the the shad threat or the two that Iran poses what about this broader feeling that maybe it's a really meaningful step in the direction of ending this sort of slightly isolated regional picture for for for for for Israeli that too much to hope for. Oh I. Think it's huge in the eyes of the the average Israeli the coming to some sort of a normalization of a status with countries like the U. A. N. and Bahrain Israelis for years have been looking at V with envy at European who can fly in and out of places. Like Dubai, it's going to be huge as a tourist destination for for Israelis you know they feel very kind of trapped in a in a hostile region, and so the more countries here that that open up to them open up to them the better you know it's It's an irony and I'm sure a disappointment for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for the fact that what will certainly be viewed as greatest diplomatic achievement. In, his more than a decade of being prime minister as far as these other people are concerned are overshadowed by what they feel is the failure and is handling of the coronavirus crisis and the very few Israelis there on a celebratory mood as they look at the what's going on in Washington, DC as they prepare to be the first Western country to go into a second full lockdown as a result of their soaring corona virus. Rate. I have I have to ask you about the Alison as you mentioned, the first country in the world to impose a second national lockdown to begin what by the end of this week? What is the mood? Is it about I wonder people are some people sanguine about the fact that this is a huge unprecedented challenge and so people having to make decisions on the on the WHO for is there a feeling? They want answers from government still why it's at the moment only then. People are very unhappy and very discontent. In the particularly because it's been such a roller coaster ride Israel really now the first lockdown got the infection rate down very low and they were a complete failure when it came to the reopening process political interests financial interests pushed, and pressured Netanyahu to re open economically open the schools reopened synagogues. And allowing large gatherings much much too quickly, and it got the virus you know from a very manageable rate to rate in which things were were out of control and so There was an an attempt to do sort of localized lockdowns that the so-called red cities would be shut down and not do this to the entire country but it got very politicized in certain cities felt that they were being targeted certain populations that they were being discriminated against that it wasn't going by the. Strictly. By the numbers, they saw it as discrimination against ultra-orthodox cities or Arab cities which were headed to the the centers of infection. It became a whole political argument and discussion nothing effective happened, and basically the government decided that because of our situation nothing except the complete national measure national lockdown would would be affected in significantly lowering the infection rate here. Alison. Fascinating. Religiously to hear from you today, that was a good friend, Alison Captain Summer there joining us here on the briefing.

Arian Moayed On How Fear Never Leaves, And Why You Should Just Keep Going
"I believe in curiosity I just I. Just think that we can't do anything without it early and just asking people obey the is basically a version of empathy. Enemy. Empathizing with WHO people are and what they do over were you the curious kid like is this something that's been part of your life or somebody who cultivated? Yeah. I mean. I think the circumstances of my life you know being born in Iran and then moving here as young immigrants in the eighties where Iran was like enemy enemy number one if you recall. And like Iran Russia which kind of back there again I kind of felt that like you know I was so curious about this world is culture and I think that's kind of where it started also you know It's crazy. It was crazy. My parents don't speak any the my spirit's English is not great. The they came here when they were forty and fifty. The I mean it's not like they. You know I'm thirty seven. So like imagining myself in three years time taking all of an IV and Chrissy and saying, Hey, well, going to move to China and we're GONNA make this. We're going to make life better in China as a show I mean that's All you can be as curious I. Guess. Yeah. I guess. So how so how old were you when you actually let on? Well, we laughed Iran you know it's hard to tell because at time here was crazy there was a war happening and I think a lot of you especially you a bit younger don't don't really remember that whole window of of our history and our relationship with Sir Yeah, the Middle East Yeah. Yeah it's complicated. It's long and it's GonNa either bore fascinate all of you guys. But the the the the the truth is we you know it's it's. It's it's hard to talk about because there's so many levels to like how crazy it is. One is my mom was married to my dad at the age of thirteen. My mom was thirteen Wendo arranged marriage. My mom is pretty standard. You know it was on the outs in that time period. Yeah. But my parent, my mom's mom was a single mom she was the youngest you know she couldn't make she couldn't make it happen, and so she had to like you know she had to like give I, guess her her daughter La youngest daughter away and so then my dad, my dad's they were more religious than my mom's side was and so. They got arranged. My mom had her first kid at fifteen years old her second kid at sixteen and Arthur kid eighteen, and then had me when she was thirty five. So my siblings are seventeen eighteen in. I'm sorry. Yes. Some teen eighteen basically twenty years than me. So, and then and then the revolution hit seventy nine. And then a war hit right after that because Saddam invaded with you know and then got the support of the United States. You know because we of the Iranian situation and then we were in a war. And so everyone was closed inside as is bombings happening all over Tehran all over the border, and so we were indoors and and you know when when people get doors and there's a lot of fear in the air of uncertainty, you procreate you know and so the baby boom in Iran happened at that moment in seventy nine to eighty five, where like sixty percent of Iranian. Population right now in Iran is under the age of forty. Fascinating you walk down the street and everyone's young. So anyway and then and then. CRAZILY my brother. My oldest brother was sixteen. When he graduated high school in Iran, his name is Amir And then he went to A. He got accepted to a school in. CHICAGO. Right. When he was sixteen. So sixteen twentyish he's in Chicago, ish issue like something like that, and then the revolution hit. And then my brother was like should I come back and. My parents were like you're never coming back here will come to you. And then in that time period. My. Youngest my brother that's closest to me who seventeen his name is. Oh, mead omen was drafted in the Iran Iraq war. And fought three years in that war. With a couple of my cousins who are who are who have passed away who died in that war one of them, which data that were, and then my brother was in war my sister was in the middle there. I was just born. We got the F out of town and we went we went as far as my dad's connections and money and. You know and you know connections could could could take you in that was Dubai. We've got to Dubai who lived in the Arab Emirates and we were there for off and on for about five years and then and then we and then you know a long period of time you know no one heard it from my brother was fight in the war. And trying to and trying to try to like move three pieces ahead while also like making sure the pieces back here it's a chess game you know and and dangerous one. And then my dad then. We had were that Amigos live. We went back to Iran. Might he got back? He was no nine, hundred twenty you know fought three years in a war in a city called Oh mead his name is omitted, which means hope and wherever like was slaughtered murdered and died because it was a brutal war brutal war and he he's a twenty year old brainwashed you know. PTSD. Kid. And in that time period as we're figuring out to go back to Dubai and come back, my sister falls in love. Falls in love with the guy and and then that made things tricky and then, and then we all laughed and my sister stay. So I- sister got the states in two thousand and three we left in eighty five. So An and then we came to the states and again you know the analogy that the Chinese like us like you and me and you taking your family and your son going to China or whatever language that you don't know our culture, the No, and you're like, this is the best news for us. Now you know you're GonNa, you're not going to be easy and so in all of that, you just get you know a a sense of like the world in a very kind of complicated way. A very young age and and not only do they not speak the language they don't know what? Christmases. They don't know what Hanukkah is. They don't have any idea why people are going to church all the time. They have no clue why the cars are this way they don't know why the food is patching. There's nothing that is familiar. There's nothing that you can empathize with as as an Iranian living in the states and being like I know this thing and so in all that you are learning rapidly. You know a very drastic way and so that curiosity might have had something to do with it. I'm not really sure

Tennis is back; James Blake discusses the challenges
"Hello. and. Welcome to the tennis podcast. It is Monday the third of August twenty, twenty and two. There is tennis actual tennis. Not, exhibition tennis competitive tennis featuring plays, we've heard of playing for ranking points and prize money. We haven't seen any of it yet. It's just been. It's just been qualifying for the weekend but at the Palermo WPA event does get underway the main draw in earnest. Later on today David's Matt I, Give You Tennis It has suddenly occurred to me that we were together when tennis was last to think. Remember when we were watching. Dubai. Was it when Jovic Matt. Watch. Kim Clijsters Return in my lounge. Yeah. That feels like a different lifetime. I. Think. I was. Kind of the last weekend of tennis, which was the Davis Cup qualifying which. Never, find run event, which is taking place to eighteen months after they. After they, qualified for it. And the even then there were. It was kind of in the background there were rumbling signs of covid nineteen. I think the airport I was at in Hungary actually had a case and they shut the airport down and but then two days later everything just shut down it's amazing how quickly it happened. Just. Tennis tennis is back and it came back with a tennis way because I think the first day of qualifying in Palermo ended gone to am in the morning. kind of like we're doing this again. Given there's no crowds to worry about a no corporate lunches to around the there is no excuse for that is the because he can stop playing at eight am. And you can play on his you can play on his many courses is as you want or need to I mean how how it is? So tennis is it like comfortingly reassuringly tennis. is finishing yeah but also stupid. We stopped terriers and your we. When you didn't go to the airport because Indian Wells was canceled. You had a fully packed suitcase. State fully packed for some time. What is status? Is still my bedroom floor it hasn't been unpacked is had items removed from I would describe it now as haw full. Because Yeah I've removed you know the old parachutes. Only items only items with an elasticated waste obviously because lockdown But yes, all items with an elasticated waste have been removed from it. And all items which you might have to wear a Nike shoe with awesome accessories they remain in the case. Keeping most of. My bedroom floor. I said I said I would leave it the like Tracy unmade beds for the duration of Tennessee's absence and I'm a woman of my word five months. Yup. There's no. Mouse. No no mouth. Remembering the mouse, the other day and thinking was that dream It was that feels like a different lifetime. The masses in the suitcase I know why inspect that regularly? Don't you don't joke about that because that is that is those are the dark thoughts 'cause my mind when I'm trying to get to sleep. So. Yes. My suitcase remains on unpacked a spouse. Now I should probably technically go to unpack it this afternoon before three PM, which is when right the main draw of Paloma starts in the UK. Literally part of the Furniture Knob? Yes. Okay. I will. I will consider that we WANNA pitch empty. I mean that will just be a pitch of an MTC case day K. Okay, sure and case with just a mouse corpse at the Boscovich. It's It's the content that everyone's waiting for you. Welcome. Seven terms of tennis. News from this week, there's been no sort of big bombshell news. The deadline of the thirty first of July has been put. On the US Open confirming. Wants him four whether or not? It was going ahead? We haven't had that sort of concrete hundred percent confirmation. From the US Open from everything we're hearing as much as the little concerned around a concern around everything we're hearing suggests that with a heck of a lot of regulations in place in and details of those those rules and regulations have been. Leaking sporadically of the last couple of weeks, it will be going ahead. I mean seems to me that the only outstanding detailed in terms of it being categoric is. The quarantine situation on reentering the you and I think I mean in some ways that is I don't know whether that might even be made easier by the fact that it sounds like Madrid isn't going to happen anymore in this is not quite such a rush to get back to to Europe in order to play the very next event.
Locked Down in Switzerland and Belgium
"Start with Stephen mcfeely he operates being be on Ireland's dingle peninsula in just before the pandemic head Stephen an interest in the hotel Oberland in October and Switzerland that's where he's had to ride out the first few months of the global lockdown good and. My goodness. My Irish friend is learning Spitzer dykes. Good here in the Alps where I've been for four months. Now in splendid isolation, my plan originally was just to come for February and March, but I've I'm still here right well, what does the vibe in Switzerland right now there's a positive vibe. The society is reopening. Tourism travel has started again just no we're on the same level as it was before we had two weekends where there was crazy crowds here huge big crowds from all over Switzerland everybody who was here was from Switzerland or had to be from Switzerland. They weren't necessarily all Swiss because there's lots of international people living in Geneva and Derek and whatnot but everybody from within the barger of Switzerland over with crowds, and then it just died and Monday to. Friday went back to being really really quiet. Okay. Well, this is sort of the very beginnings of the rekindling of tourism I would imagine it'll be people traveling with within their own countries first, and then traveling within Europe, and then finally international travel and transatlantic travel. Yes. That's exactly what we're seeing. The borders here have just reopened. So we're expecting Germans and some Austrians and maybe some French to come now also, I don't anticipate huge numbers like that would have been heretofore. One. Very noticeable thing in the Valley of course, there's no American visitors. As you know, the valley also is very popular with. Chinese travelers Indians many people from Dubai and Saudi Arabia would come here and they're not here this year. So there's a noticeable difference there. So the people getting the real cultural change would be the French speaking. Swiss. German speaking part of his Switzerland and not even leaving their own country exactly. Fifty percent of our guests. Last week were French speaking Swiss and it was the first time I've ever actually met those people and I would say to them. Are you French Swiss would say no, no, we are. All MOM and so I I learned something new immediately the K. The identify as swirl. They were saying exactly what you just said they said it's like we are in a different country it's very dramatic here it's different toossion either those on the do shut down it was really cool. They were very excited to see a different part of their own country. So that was wonderful. Now Stephen you own a hotel in Ireland in Dingle Peninsula and now you own a hotel in Switzerland in Loudoun valley two of my favorite places as a businessman working in both these countries how do you compare the support getting from the government and how the two governments are dealing with this crisis? Well, the difference is. Very. Big. I'm still on team. Ireland. So I want to be positive about my own country, but there's not a lot of support coming. Heretofore in Switzerland for example, within two weeks of the crisis occurring. The. Swiss Federal Council which is the Swiss government offered ten percent of the previous year's turnover and So that's quite a considerable amount of money and they offered that as a loan which was repayable over seven years. Zero percent interest. So they're not looking to profit from it and in Ireland we really struggled to get some assistance. And we got ten thousand euros of overdraft line of credit and but repayable at seven and a half percent interest in Switzerland. We got three hundred thousand. So it's quite a big difference there no-interest at all. No interest at all. Of course, Switzerland may have much stronger and deeper reservists than Ireland, but they were able to immediately come up with assistance very little bureaucracy paperwork, and they immediately got to help us in Ireland. The experience was just simply much different to the government really weren't as proactive for as immediate as were here in Switzerland. The roots here what's around her a lot less strict as well There is a two meter rule here, but I haven't seen anybody wearing masks very much, which is kinda shocking for me because I know in Ireland the whole north of is people should be wearing masks. People definitely are observing social distance. One of my friends said to me that the two meter rule has actually brought Swiss people closer together so. That is so insightful to the Swiss society. It's more difficult thing. It's more difficult thing for Irish people or Italian people are Spanish. Two meters distance than it would be for this people or maybe the. Scandinavians. I can see by home people are wondering. Is the Irish pub culture ever going to come back the way it was with social distancing whereas in. Switzerland. Here for me like I'm I'm in the Alps I'm surrounded by fresh air and. Of of lovely space and it's been a wonderful place to be stranded, I don't even want to complain about it because although I I was stranded here for four months. It was the perfect place I felt very safe. I might have felt different if I was in the middle of Zurich or something or Geneva but I felt very safe. I'd in the Alps and it is lovely and peaceful and quiet, and of course, that's what people are coming here for anyway

Because it's people, the welcome coming, he would never go to a teaching considering Timbuktu somewhere. They can join so it's been very moving against experienced. I was really surprised by that having people's faith and win of course, a President I mean twenty five people on the computer screen, and then you fix, patient pays and see who's there and those who don't won't faced on habits. Once you start asking questions. They come up strong, and it's been very moving and people to said that, but it's really quite preston quite direct and quite intense. Intense, so I, really really really enjoying it I have to say it's kind of a an odd thing to say straight. Curious. Yeah, do you think you'll do more of it? When you can travel you get back on the planes and travel around the world I think eventually when I'm very very old. When I'm very old now my probably do that, but I don't mind driving around and don't have a home right now, so I can't keep in the other. People's. I mean this is a flash.

The World Teaching Dhamma around the world I'm wondering what it is that you find about the Dhamma that resonates with people. What is what are some of the things that you go to? You know no matter where you land was gonNA engage able. Well, you know this is where. I mean it just seems to me clearly, we want to summarize what Buddha is a bad.

Indian amazing culture for centuries enough and the frame welcome to mention framework of things and like. Really with it, you start to get to the essence, and clearly the essence has to be the mind, so you're not putting Greek for God's sake, but it is not a psychologist on anything. That's exactly I mean. Everything comes down to the mind, even the fuel. It's it's amazing. Sufficient. Brilliant worldview of the Buddha's is observed to be true. That is a law natural law that runs a unit us. And what does it run is law within which minds and lives of sentient beings run, so there's Buddhist psychology which is a how the mind works and that trump's from is genius. Indians are with. His Holiness. He says it was amazing Indians more than three thousand years ago. Who wants to begin the investigation tonight? Yourself I mean we clip Judeo Christian. European SORTA was Mr Freud didn't do. It was arrogance so physical Buddha commanders incredible system. What do they do? They met the mind they met. The mind to yield is four thousand distinct mental illnesses, which summarize into three is an incredibly sophisticated map of the mind I mean they only mapping them on now. You know the Brian. What does match the on the cognitive process? So it's not all about the mind, then. What else is Buddhism so you get right down to? The big sort of Llamas Alpacas issues, doors. Lama from the very beginning I could see ask entities teachings that he he was lucky his born Hippie, he just knew how to talk to in the sixties and seventies, so he it down to this fundamental way where Ron fine, because we're so full of resolve, his overwhelming lethal of dissatisfaction in culture and which. Could see were willing. These soap piteous hippies full of misery. He stopped trying to tell us about Amman. Potential so to me. This is the the bottom line almost like a fraud I was talking about the same thing. The Whitewater presents mind and this incredible potential. We've got this. Is everybody no matter whether the communist with people psychologist with university students meet outside the Buddhist Woods in super amazing way to see the mind understand, everybody recognizes everybody can recognize though I told you know want us his terminology. This distinction between delusions virtues. This is a radical idea for the wasting recognizes is just start moving to me. You can never tired of the more you can let your mind. This is what gives people. Courage is what gives us optimism, and we don't have that in our culture I mean. Where is there in? In any psychology on Euroscience, dare suggest that you can read the multiple. The rubbish grow the goodness, which is the meaning of the word Buddha only. Buddhas that's very stock terms. Is

"dubai" Discussed on Airplane Geeks Podcast
"Flight flight across the Atlantic or the Pacific. I I guess I I changed as long as it wasn't a worse seat. You know if it was at least just as as good a seat in meaning that if I want an aisle seat that's it's another aisle seat My probably would be less likely to Switched from a you know my prized. I'll see some middle seat. No the back of the airplane or something but then again you know I mean it it depends on the situation creation. And if you know there's a poor family that's desperate and has good reasons to stay together. Yeah okay yeah like you say Max what's what's the inconvenience but the the dot has published. Actually they did in last year in two thousand eighteen. They published a family Lee seating webpage. It has tips for parents if you're traveling with young children and we'll put linked to that in the show notes that page also so has a link to where you can report complaints about family seating problems but as far as tips the the dot family seating page talks about things to do before enduring booking like understand your airlines seatings seating policies. Because they're all different here you go book your ticket as early as possible and book children on the same reservation as adults. They have some tips for after booking contact attack the airline directly through reservations if your family was not able to obtain seats together or if you are unsure about the status of your seats and be. He's sure to confirm reservations that were not booked with the airline it then finally some tips before travel and at the airport. Confirm erm reservations and seat assignments before going to the airport and the big one plan to arrive at the airport early on the day of your flight. So so Game we'll have a That link to that tips page. That's just a summary of the tips. There's a lot more information there that you may find useful into that. I would add one more tip which is is don't reserve in basic economy where they don't assign you a seat I think that's pretty Silly to assume that you should be altogether if you bought the absolute lowest fare. We're for that fair. You don't get a choice of seat and I agree with the booking long in advance. I was thinking back a year or two ago when there was a I an older couple. I'm guessing maybe in the early seventies were in middle seats one in front of the other and I was sitting in the seat next to the lady in both of ask me if I wouldn't please switch my aisle seat for one of them. You know one of their middle seats you know long in advance to get this aisle seat and you properly booked at the last minute and now you expect me to give up my seat. So I I declined the offer. I will say the lady next to me was was a pill the entire trip. My conclusion at the end of the trip was whoever she's married to as a saint. I didn't know how he put put up with that kind of stuff. But anyway hairline trip can be fund. Yes yes all right a serious issue From the NTSB NTSB issues seven safety recommendations based on findings from Southwest Airlines flight. Thirteen eighty investigation. Now you may recall the uncontained engine failure on Southwest Airlines flight. Thirteen eighty that was on April seventeenth. Twenty eighteen material pierced fuselage caused the cabin. depressurized passenger was partially sucked out the window. Other passengers passengers managed to get her back inside the aircraft but she did not survive. The plane landed safely and we hope to have the captain of that flight. Actually on as our guests in future show but on this flight a fan blade released and Fan Dan Blades. Or what you see when you look into the front of a jet engine. Now surrounding the fan section is a case that's designed to contain the blade in the event of failure that's typically titanium or Kevlar is used more more now and you may have seen some of those super slow motion videos that are part of the engine development and certification process where an explosive charge set at the root of a fan blade then the charges it just set off while the engine is operating at full power. It's called a fan blade out or F. B. O. containment certification tests. And and what we'll put a a video of one of these Dec- you could see. This is the a three eighty played off test. And it's it's a pretty old video radio and the resolution is not very high but it gives you kind of indication of the extreme forces that are involved. He's played out tests And you'll also see that the fan case often distorts quite a bit now. That's okay as long as nothing penetrates the fan case in other words the engine parts are contained. Otherwise it's called an uncontained failure all right back to this This flight in the NTSB news release. They explain that what happened in this situation. See if I can summarize it were a couple of things one is that the distortion of the fan case happened to who also be at the same location where there were some I guess attachment points you might call them for the Cowley also when and the The the blade liberated is determined to use when the blade liberated the fan blade the pieces of it exited some of them exited fitted forward and at an angle that was really different from what had been measured in the in the certification test and and that caused some some other impacts on the on the cowling so what you had is the inlet and and part of the cowling came off of this engine and that's what struck the fuselage it wasn't fan wasn't blade parts coming out of the engine. Those were contained but it was the interaction largely between The the fan case and and the and the cowling doing as well as the the blades striking another part of the the cowling that was unanticipated so the NTSB. Has I made some recommendations that are pretty complex in one respect They make a lot of sense that being that there needs to be more more testing and sort of more integration of the The testing and certification Asian process when it comes to sort of the interaction of the different components here and the NTSB is recommending. That there'd be a redesign of of the of the cowling of the NACELLE And that when that becomes available that the the existing cowlings things On these affected aircraft should be replaced by a different design so That's that's pretty major and as we've said many times in the past The NTSB has no power to mandate changes. All they can do is their investigation and and based on the investigation make recommendations and then it's up to the FAA and other regulatory bodies as to whether or not the recommendations recommendations are actually implemented so. I don't know what will happen here because the here we go this way. Just what seven thirty seventh have need is another redesign exactly exactly but this was not a Max aircraft so the engines different right. This is a this is the next generation aircraft craft Because because the Max is going to have a different cowl structure now whether or not it would be subject to the same kind of chain of events. Sort of thing I I don't know and if whether or not the NTSB looked at that. I don't know I think they may be looking at the seven three seven. NJIT Franco interesting. Well does it just means we're going to Watch this space to see if anything comes because like you said Ed maxine. NTSC can make recommendations but we know that they don't necessarily have to be followed listened to etc.. So we'll see what Boeing knowing Boeing does to move forward or maybe they can. They can show that at least on the Max. The new engine that the colleen qualifies to the recommendations Dacians N. T. N. T. S. big now the The ABC we'll put a link to the abstract the final report in the in the show. Notes the the actual file report is should be issued within a few weeks and so the abstract is subject to any last minute editing or revisions the NTSB might make. But I don't know like all NTSB reports that I've ever read. I find them quite fascinating They're they're written in a style. That's I mean it's technical but it's also I think relatively easy to follow in from an engineering standpoint. I think very fascinating to read. So it didn't tell you guys but earlier today A recorded Some sections of the final report abstract and a lot of people won't care we're about that level of detail But some of you listening might be interested and to make it easier for you rather than having to dig out and you you know. Look up the the document and read it and find the interesting parts. I'll put that recording. I made at the end of the show. So after it's all over so you know we say bye and everything It runs about thirteen minutes. So if you're interested in in listening to that you can at the end of the show if you don't care about about that and that's great just don't you cut off and we say by So I'll do that if your podcast. APP APP supports chapters in most of them do now You can go there right now if you want and listen to that listened to that recording that part of the show Just this picture to come back and listen to the rest of us because David's got a tanker story next he does boy. was I shocked at this. This is from the drive. The first boom equipped tanker for a private aerial refueling company has arrived. I didn't know there were private aerial refueling companies. Well there's a mega tanker which has been around a long time in his has contracted primarily here in the states for the for the navy as an Heflin seven Oh sevens with probe and drogue aircraft. Well the Netherlands Airforce Force way back in the day bought. Something called A. K. D. C.. Ten which believe it or not was not a casey ten like we have in the United States. Air Forced. But we're actually to converted DC ten freighters into Ari aerial refueling. There's what made them special were they were some of the only boom aircraft in NATO. Besides the United States Air Force keep in mind that the majority of NATO countries that fly aircraft like France. They use Promo drogue. They don't use booms in fact even the French Casey. When thirty five F ours there boom actually has a drogue mounted on the end of it So but the Dutch had F sixteen since they were one of the initial purchasers so they needed a boom aircraft so they've retired them there. I believe they're getting multi-role tanker handkerchief ports the Airbus tanker that.

"Cancelled twenty billion dollars aircraft orders at the Dubai air show contrary to headlines. This is a pretty interesting story. David you WANNA take it. You mean you're going to let me take airline story. It was kind of interesting that you know. Oh you had you had just commented on how many purchases emerets me but it also sounds like Emirates is really getting rid of a lot of a three eighty s that they aren't buying originally the cancellation of the final thirty nine airframes by ordering fifty fifty eight three fifty s so clearly the end is near for the a three eighty which is really kind of amazing that the production action of this podcast is lasted longer than the production of that aircraft. Ohio how we covered its first flight. We covered its initial enroll in not enroll livery delivery of two Emirates and now emerets emerets is cancelling it so question is will it go down in history as the a three eighty was it ugly and an economic failure or just plain ugly ugly. Oh it's always a risk Yeah the You make some assumptions you you place some bets anytime you start a new aircraft program and Some you win some you don't This Forbes article the is saying that well you know there's a lot of pr spin going on here with the Dubai airshow in fact a a lot of these emerets orders. We're actually previously announced just formalized at the Dubai Air Show so as David mentioned they cancelled the or formally canceled the last thirty nine eighty a three eighty s. They also cancelled forty. Three thirty Nieto's that they'd originally announced we're going to replace those a three eighty orders and and instead ordered the fifty three fifties but thirty of those were previously announced an emerets also reduce the number of seven eight sevens on order and they changed them. They switched from the larger seven. Eight seven dash ten to the smaller. Seventy seven dash nine in addition thirty. Triple seven x aircraft. That were on order. Were cancelled so as the article. points out the The original seven widebody aircraft that have been ordered at a list price of twenty one point. Four billion dollars is now how fifty aircraft worth sixteen billion dollars. Those are all list prices of course and those original Seventy Air Airbus aircraft replacing the canceled orders for the three eighty. So if you do the math add in the seventy eight seven order changes. The author calculates accumulates that it was actually a net reduction in orders of twenty billion dollars. So good good. Good job US You know spinning out a good story. I guess in all fairness to the Dubai air show I mean Paris and Farnborough also do the same thing that the orders are finalized finalized at the show but Emerson is doing a a major fleet change which means were wondering. I wonder what what the economics of their global reach is going to be now. They were the largest produce largest purchaser of the a three eighty. And it'll be quickly to see how quickly spin these out of service to be replaced by these smaller longer for hall aircraft like triple 7-x God forbid after all these years on saying the following. I'm kind of interested to see how the root swaps occur when aircraft or replacing what aircraft on the various routes. And Will there be a constriction or a reduction of Komo domination and trying to make Dubai a hub globally so with Qantas and and Singapore flying from the states directly nonstop with the rise of the eighteen hour and seventeen hour. Flight that skipping into Dubai hub. It's interesting that we're going from these ultra-long-haul from Dubai which had become such a hub for international international travel to now. It's we're skipping that altogether and going for ultra-long-range flight so times have been changing. Yeah I think the ideal environment that an airline would love to operate in would be one where you could change your fleet Either numbers or you're composition on a dime at no cost You'd love to be able to react quickly like that. But that's not the reality of the equipment that you want may not be available may not even be invented yet but even if it is the lead times are long the ability to to to make changes is somewhat limited so sometimes the you know the opportunity presents itself where an airline can make changes like that. And that's due to a number of factors. I think the seven three seven Max scenario is You know one such situation for certain customers where it's an opportunity for them to adjust the the fleets that they have apparently the seven three seven. Max obviously came up at Dubai. People were were asking asking about that. there's still issues with the triple seven x and there's a great quote from from Emirates which is yes the largest triple seven x customer at this point but in light of the seven three. Seven Max the buckle or it says it wants to it wants to triple seven x to be put through quote hell on earth in testing to ensure that safe to fly I think that's Sort of indicates the the mood of the of the airlines these days when it comes to new aircraft cameras thing about the eighty three eighty in the really long takes to develop a new airframe. And it's got. What do you think Max is at a ten twelve year period? Roughly Okay Yeah and the problem is you've got to anticipate what is the world's going to look like in twelve years and are the Airlines GonNa want you know this particular product that I'm designing them. You know and things change all the time it may be. The three eighty was ahead of its time. We find that ten fifteen years from now people going. Hey I want to buy up all the three eighty s because things have changed you said essentially it would be nice if the airlines could switch out equipment almost on a daily basis the other thing would be nice for them would be if everybody who wanted to fly point to point with all want to fly at noon you know for example or specific time and then the three eighty makes one heck of a lot of sense because then you get everybody together at the same time but I think the airlines have. I've figured out that people liked to fly when they WANNA fly in that those times are spread across the day and it probably makes sense to have smaller aircraft to accommodate the schedules. The people would like to fly on one of the things I think. Airbus dropped the ball with that. Boeing didn't is the three eighty has the potential of being a really good freighter and oversized freighter. And why they didn't go through that or and we'll we'll see in the secondary market whether some of these three eighty s do become freighters of some sort if they can be repurpose purpose but I really think they dropped the ball on on. Not Leveraging that aspect of that size aircraft Boeing sold more dash eight fs than they did dash eight is they wanted a large freighter. So it's it's kind of interesting that they Opted not to do that. That could have been some additional aircraft in some prolonged production. Yeah wouldn't be nice to see them them being the three eighty s live on in a new life but Going from the large to the very small seems like hadn't heard much about Honda jet lately but there's an article in a an online and How the jet was at Dubai static display but th there's an interesting quote from the CEO of Honda the jet that comes from NBA be talked about NBA last week but he called the Honda jet elite? The world's most delivered light jet for the past two years Apparently there's about one hundred and forty Honda jets that are now operating worldwide. They have more than forty thousand total total flight hours with ninety nine point. Seven percent dispatch reliability They describe how Transport Canada certified the Honda jet earlier this year and see a see. The Civil Aviation Authority of China certified it. This past August has has gotten. US certification Must have I know that the The Honda aircraft may quite investment in the US and production facilities altis They're they're adding a new fifteen and a half million dollar wing production facility in North Carolina and and in total Honda is invested something A little over two hundred and forty five million dollars in the in the US so They're they're they're expanding the Honda Max. You haven't flown on a jet. I bet no I haven't but I'm really familiar with it I was on the wool. The Collier Trophy selection action can be back in two thousand fifteen when they were candidate and the CEO is also the the designer. That's me she Masa Fujino. Gino and I was actually I ask them more questions that was asked during the presentation. Which I'll I'll mention by the way I said to him? Why when the conventional title wisdom was an engine could not be mounted on the top of the wings? Did you believe that that might be a possible configuration. That could work it. He said that he started from the premise. Primus of he wanted to get the largest possible. A cabin into do that. He would have to move the pylons for the engine off of the You the fuselage itself and that's why he started to explore while would it be possible to mounted on top of the wings and they spent who. Gosh I bet close to twenty years designed this aircraft and then he was able to find Through I'm sure a lot of it was computer. Design and fluid dynamics a spot where indeed you could mount an engine pylons on the top of a wing and still have all of this working so it was really kind of From aback ended way that he got to this And he did get his large cabin as a result and he did get really recognition that everybody was wrong. Indeed you can mount engine pylons on top of a wing and still have a very efficient design so you know my hat's off to Moscow Fujino for the tremendous design work that he's done over the years and you know although ever he's made to bring this aircraft to the market I know said the most delivered jet over the past two years If you were to say over the past one year then that would go to the CIRRUS vision jet It'll be interesting to see what happens this year But the series listed edged them out by several aircraft. Serious did What sixty jets last year think? Honda jet did somewhere in the fifties. You know fifty five fifty six fifty seven something like that so it sells extremely well and I think they're going to do really well expanding their sales around the world is you know Max. It takes a lot to stand up a jet operation because now you've gotta have service facilities all around the world because people expect tremendous up time and availability in just can't do that unless you've got a lot of service centers and a lot of parts in the regions where people are flying this equipment so I think also that Honda has a track record for investing for the long term and so I think they're going to do whatever it takes to make this aircraft even more successful than it already is so. Yeah Yeah I'm a big fan of the Honda jet. Yeah I agree with you about the the resources sources that you need to have globally and another aspect that is is training and in fact Honda's partnering with Flight Safety International Channel under building a second flight simulator and Training Center in Europe. Actually at the Farnborough airport they're hoping to operational with that next year April twenty twenty opened up that flight simulator and training center all right. Well we'll also put in the show notes Besides it's links to These articles we've talked about and some others. There's also a video. That's kind of a wrap up of the Dubai Air Show The week's Hi lites then think they call it they call it Dubai TV or airshow. TV something like that but they they did produce a number of pretty good videos throughout throughout the event and this is kind of their wrap up video so as I said you can find that in the show notes at airplane Geeks Dot com slash.
"dubai" Discussed on Aviation Week's Check 6 Podcast
"Welcome to the third and final. Check six PODCASTS. From the Dubai show my name is against Flato. I'm the executive editor Commercial Aviation of Aviation Week Network and with me three of my colleagues defense editor Steve. A Steve Trimble Trimble. Yeah Steve Yes. European defense editor Tony Osborne and our editor for safety net transport based in Washington Shawn Product. Guys third day here at the show. Big News start with defense. What did we learn yes? It was a very exciting day here in the UAE because they pulled out a dust covered wallets and purchase an Dan covering sense uncomfortable. Okay so four years ago. We had the launch of the globe light reconnaissance aircraft were Edwin early warning aircraft. So that's now here at the show. And then today they announced buying two more on top of the free they already had on order so that was significant news site that was a well when its funding negotiated. When it's all said and done it'll be about a billion dollars and then also a surprise to many of us? They ordered three three Airbus. MIT tanker transports based on on top of the free. They already had so. That's pretty significant for a small air force now to have five airborne early warning aircraft and six tankers. So there's there's pretty good news for both Airbus and Saban in that respect. So the MIT multi orders. Yet to be finalized it's considered a selection but basically brings another ticking the box for the thirty. Mit over the Casey Seve forty-six so they already had selected the three thirty Mortiz. So it's it's reasonable that we would have expected them to just do a follow. On order however Boeing back in May the Shangri la dialogue one of their executives said that he expects me to select the Casey forty six for the second batch. But what would liquor for mixed fleet with the few was. That's that's a really good question. And it doesn't quite make sense from an economic perspective however the U. E. has a reputation for or diversifying its fleet. So it's not beholden to a single country or government for defense equipment. So that's why they have barraged two thousand nine and F16's for example but they do this in a lot of other categories of equipment as well so it wouldn't it wouldn't have seemed absurd for the UAE to select Boeing Anna Casey forty cents in addition to the three thirty. Rt and when the Boeing executive confirmed that they were interested in it created. I think something of an expectation that he wouldn't have said that unless he had a really you yeah Strong confidence that they were actually going to select it rather than risk the embarrassment of being publicly rejected or something that nobody knew it was a competition in the first place to title. That is what happened today so Airbus will go back to Europe with another selection for the eight three thirty. MRT in their pocket which is a big deal for them. And that's a significant solves while I mean can this considerable risk in developing this platform. And the yeah I think a follow on order even before the aircraft entered service. which is June spring is is pretty significant deal now so Kudos to play freely and on the civil side Somewhat unexpected. We did see quite a lot of activity in terms of Max Max Shung and what happens. Yeah yesterday the Max was the highlight yesterday. At least on the on the Boeing side with with Sun Express converting ten ten options. Boeing woke up today and said he said I'm GonNa hold my own beer watch this and they announced a letter of intent for thirty Max from astonished and We confirmed a firm order for twenty more taxes from undisclosed customer that is going to unveil itself on its own terms in the next couple of months so that adds twenty firm potential fifty. Max this is to a backlog that that was dwindling. Even though Boeing hasn't been delivering the airplanes since March ad in the ten from yesterday and that's plus sixty see that's potentially if they're all you know if if these the orders are finalize but to announce a second for mortar in two days for an airplane saying that we don't have to tell you is under tremendous scrutiny. I think it is interesting in an airplane. We mentioned before they didn't even put it on their stand as one of the models also in such thing. But do you think that this is kind of a part of Boeing's strategy for you know ahead of the resumption Russian of Max deliveries expected for sometime early next year at the early indicator here I think you I think you have to assume that. They are looking to build credibility in the best way to build credibility in his business and that's lining up customers Both of new customers in astonishment of former seven three operator but not a current. Seven operator carring Boeing customer but as Tony pointed out in the in the ramp up to the podcast also a loyal Airbus customer now these airplanes narrowbody customer these are playing. Toby operated by their low cost subsidiary but still part of the family and a big endorsement. It seems though Boeing is not going to they they they may not be applying pressure to get the airplane back. Certified as somewhere saying they were with announcing notional timelines. It's at the La over the last few months but they are now trying to let the markets and say. Hey we believe in this airplane. It's certainly there's no downside downside for them to be announcing commitments at this point. It's only isn't it a bit earlier or is it okay. Well I think some of lined up with the show. Let's not overlook the fact that this was announcing a major air show so I think the two things sort of sort of came together. None of these airplanes will be in service for several years right because of the backlog in the fact that they're Boeing's backlog is now growing because they're not delivering airplanes certification appears to be imminent. Probably too strong a word but at approval in two thousand nineteen by by the FAA. Still not off the table. Nobody's going to have the airplane and service before well into the first quarter and most of these that we're talking about these countries you you may not see it until the second quarter and and it'd be interesting tomorrow when the FAA administrator is here at the show and talks to reporters Tomorrow morning so we'll it'd be trying to get an update Rain all that then. FAA's been consistent that they are. They will not improve the airplane until it is ready. It is not ready. Boeing is not by all accounts handed over the final package. Documenting software changes. The training still needs to be updated. They're still a public comment period on it. I mean there's work to do but Boeing announcing these these orders and commitments at the show. You know clearly they have customers that are confident. Even if they're giving away the airplanes the fact that customers are putting their name to insane we will take more there some expression of confidence there the other question on this on the civil side with the the the big revisions John Nearing on the Emirates fleet. We as as of today. We only have kind of path part of the answer which is on the site Obviously emerets emerets ordering fifty eight three fifties as they seek to re image change and replace the three eighty or other is no longer. You're going to be delivered. The Boeing side of things is still not decided or at least not publicly announced that will happen on Thursday. They have scheduled a press conference for the for the for the morning. And we all expect some clarification. There I did have a chance to talk to Tim. Clark of the president of airline today and what I found most interesting was his vision for the next five years in terms of growth. They're not growing very strongly right now because of the economic troubles because of all the stuff that's going on but the the three fifty's will come in from twenty anti twenty-three and that will kick off a real change in their network because suddenly they can go into much thinner long-haul routes and also ultra-long-haul the routes that they couldn't really serve the eighty because it was too big triple seven because it was too big or couldn't didn't have range so stay stay tuned but is going to change significantly and it'll get into markets. Say at least that has haven't I've been touched so far so other people that have not been in a position to have to compete with them will be in the future if they stick to this and I'm very curious.
"dubai" Discussed on Aviation Week's Check 6 Podcast
"Hello and welcome to the checks. podcast from the first day of the Dubai I show my name is James Flato. I'm the executive editor for the commercial for the aviation week. Network and with me are Shamburg. Senior editor airline safety and transport and Steve Trimble senior. Defense Editor Sean. Before we get to the show here the talk was you know. There's not going to be major major orders for commercial Crisis growth is slowing. What's your take from I here I think for the most part? That's true what I think tends to get lost in the thirty second narratives of shows like this especially this one. Is that if the big local players aren't doing things that nothing is happening and that's that's not necessarily the case while the Emirates and not hat aren't having announced anything yet and probably won't problem they have plenty of aircraft out on the on the static. But they're not gonNA they're not adding any new ones. There are some smaller players in the region. There are seeing being opportunities and and taking advantage and will you one example that announced an order today. Oman Salaam. Air ordered a couple of eight hundred. Twenty one L. Ours. They have a fleet of Eight hundred twenty C current engine in new engines and this airplane for them as part of strategy to get a twenty aircraft but also to get an an airplane a little bit more capable than the ones they have talking about things that are a big deal to them like charters deeper into Europe. They Turkey now but now they're looking at Germany was one replace they mentioned and also to add capacity during peak season so well. The larger guys aren't aren't making any headlines. There's still opportunity here. Slamming reward to me is a great example of know things keep happening even though maybe headlines Aren't being stolen by the guys that usually still headlines at these issues and the Nigerian airport right and he's ordered more to choose from so big order in the commercials space is going to be a Arabia more than one hundred trump. It's it's interesting. What the size? But also because of what they're going to order think that they will be ordering actually twenty x ray right expanding further into the long haul low low cost segment. There were really fly into Kale from charger. Eight eat our sector with the ehlers that they have and apparently the experience that they're tied with the aircraft has been so promising that they now think they're ready to to expand further and the Saddam. Air Order is kind of oversee smaller scale but but also interesting so yeah. So what's the what's the TATION for Emirates and they've been talking about deferring orders rather than adding new ones delaying Reflection of slower growth reflection right of slower growth end of a strategy that relies heavily on breath. Moving people through this region that we're in I think that clearly they have something that you know Eddie has we. We know is parking. Some brand new planes as just as a brand new three fifties. which is it's amazing? I one would hope that. It's a temporary situation but I think that for for you know better part of a year. Now we've been talking about the risk that the the backlog the wide-body backlog clog in the Middle East has on. Particularly a couple of the Boeing product lines triple seven. Xp One of them My guess is that the royals will work with with them to try to stretch out any major changes as long as possible and make those changes until there's changes are either not necessarily not necessarily not necessary or less necessary because especially on the white body so they're filling slots on the Russian lines. That are not exactly going to be replaced if they quickly if they come up. It's not I blake narrowbody sector different handle. So let's switch gears Ghosn's ties inside. Steve you've been here for several days. Dubai I used them briefings with the names seen people talk about division of the In the space. Talk about what you've learned. Yeah so you a year force The conversation is is quite a different this year than it has been in previous years. A A lot of the focus in previous years have been on I should say previous shows and it's a biannual show. The last one was in twenty seventeen. And they're the big talk Eh. When is the winners? The going to get the F thirty five and the thirty five is making its debut here at this show however You know the conversation has turned areas. No near-term interest by the acquiring the F thirty five. There is a long term interest that started in two thousand nine when I first saw so you start talking about it But at the moment what they've done is they've started upgrade their F16's with radars To make them more capable they've put up there mirage-2000 Dash into a service life extension program. So they are pretty much set for their fighter fleeing their combat airpower through the next decade so In the meantime what they're doing is refocusing on this vision of air power that is emerging. Not only here but night states in Europe as well which is multi title main sort of bringing in this new era of connectivity at tactical edge with Stealth aircraft Whether or not it's f-gas or tempest or the next generation air dominance program in the US. They're all going after the same idea. which is that we you know? We have to connect the current fleet. I we have to figure out how to get these silt aircraft which are actually designed to ovulate was designed to operate completely by now with any other aircraft and now other trying desperately to figure out. How do we connect this thing? Because there's so much information on this and it's the speed of information as speed of decision making that's going to win so slowing it slowdown. Export orders for factor shifted them right so so now. The focus is on modernisation currently as well as continuing doing to recapitalize second third generation fighters especially in this region fourth generation fighters so F F eighteen thousand sixteen but then waiting for another decade before you go into F thirty five And whatever comes after that Europe whether it's F- cast tempest or you know where however that works out about the front of them I mean there's been talk of hope you're might score some expertise over here down here that that could be very it difficult. Given a lot of the political issues going on in the regions we've talked about that with our Lord The Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition Sustainment. I mean the fact is as you know not only the United States also Germany has the United States is the Congress has some real problems with what Saudi Arabia Arabia has been doing with the Worm Regan and obviously Saudi Arabia's specifically with the situation with the Saudi journalists Khashoggi and so You know getting those kinds of approvals for export deals have been difficult that seems to have affected a four hundred. m just seems to have got nowhere the Saudi deal for a four hundred. M's of course you have Germany as part of the program saying they want to export to Saudi. So that's a big. That's a big problem and what we've seen that in a similar way in the United States I mean the Senate Foreign Relations Committee essentially has a hold on anything that relates to offensive capability. We seen approvals approvals for support aircraft and defensive systems so extended range watt won approval came out of the State Department a couple of weeks ago. that deal signed yet. They've been talking about Casey forty six potentially But also patriot. Air Defense Systems our defenses and I showed it should say top priority at at the moment and Saudi is Defense Against Unity's in cruise missiles because they just got hit on September Fourteenth at Aramco In Saudi Arabia that's with With the US and Europe and basically everybody besides Iraq says were missiles came from grant. Iran says that they weren't but You know that's that's the huge focus in the rejoin house. Figure had tax. Okay so we're almost running out of time now. I just wanted to say this is the day one show We're looking at two to three more you deuce the news newsy days. What we expect to Sean on the commercial side what's coming? Somebody's GONNA in order for more than about three aircraft. I think we've talked about Arabia. Yes that's beyond that I think a lot we one thing we didn't touch on some partnerships between suppliers Oem's and tier one suppliers and and customers bowling in Egypt. Air signed announced a deal today where they were Egypt Arizona I Africa Slash Middle East authorized services provider for Boeing. Which I didn't know that they didn't have one in the region but they don't but then the like that are good for Boeing especially with what they're facing now also good for an operator like Egypt bear which has been doing or over decades to to set up a trust beachhead in the region? I I think you're going to see more of that. We've seen a few and those kind of announcements a lot of times sort of forgotten about in in you know one of the big announcements come. But they're never shorted to them even slow show okay. We should sable for commercial and military. There's not like a lot of other shows where everything's pre scripted in advance Manson or even announced advance and they just re announce it at the show. This time you know going into by everybody knows nothing is firm. Nothing is fixed until the moment it's been announced or not announced and we've gone to press conference that show that get cancelled literally at the last minute because they decided not to buy what I remember a few of those so you have no idea what could happen over the next few days. It could be a lot of things. Nothing so we'll find out we'll find out so that's a wrap today's subject six so you can join to again for another one from Dubai. Thanks Steve Thanks Sean and thanks for listening..

"The rate that doesn't really tell the story at the race to be honest with you. But yeah, no. I didn't. They bronze run his word this appointed. But disappoints gave of that. But that's not the first time I've been disappointed by his horses over that. And then it doesn't seem to affect them for the rest of the season in general anyway to take sweeping statement. But you understand what I'm saying. So I wouldn't be worried too much this way, I wouldn't be in the least bit surprised if later in the season magic wand is beating Persian. About that oversee. We'll have to see whether they will add up. But yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if she. Yeah. Much closer much much closer. Things will turn around. I know that there's a better Philly there in magical. But I wouldn't be surprised that just seems as though they have two ways of going the O'Brien team. It's either they they head out there for the sun. And and they can they campaign and competes on a very rich night where there's peace in our time between Godolphin and cool more or they use it as a genuine as genuine prep like Mendelssohn, and and he bolting up, but but this year just presume they were going to compete, but they weren't one hundred percent. But not once next start will be very very interesting. And I wouldn't be at all surprised if she manages to turn the foam around with old Persian or maybe it'll be magical takes them on. Maybe it'll be cute gardens. Who knows we'll have to wait and see. But. Yeah. The the decision really was to talk about these races. As these are the ones that would most affect those in terms of European races going forward and racists to Washington Sky Sports racing. And with that in mind the Dubai World Cup is definitely a race that we have to talk about because Sky Sports racing obviously has top-class American action and thunder snow will almost certainly be heading back. Stateside, I should imagine side been sorority getting in on the act and with the most significant winner of the night as well for the third consecutive year. Thunder snow is a winner on Dubai World Cup night. Yui Darby in two thousand seventeen the Dubai World Cup last year and from a horrible drawl. He goes in wins the do by World Cup again. Hopefully, you're on Christel Sumio.

"What I like is the idea to be able to lock in the price on gonna vary in the USA. That would be one maybe two use heavily as a key horse underneath in bets. Like the trifecta USA version of the try cast. But I imagined for folks over here. The more relevant concept is the each way bet on gun. Vera, okay. I'm going to ask you a question about US betting in a second. But before I do your best bed for maiden for Dubai. World Cup night on Sky Sports racing. My favorite of the ones that we've talked about in terms of yet likeliness of win and value. I'm still gonna go with X Y jet in the golden Shaheen. I just think he might be the speed of the speed and be able to go on with it and lead them on a merry chase. As it were. Nice. Now if I throw in Jake wand, if we get one more we've got a patent so give me your second strongest pick. Oh, let's see. I mean, magic wand would have been a good choice. I'm glad I'm. Glad we threw her in there. Let's talk about does it. How important is having a juice in the odds as opposed to a likely winner juice in the odds is let's go juicing. The odds let's go for the grave. I should've known in that case we're going to go with coal front in the dolphin. Nice. Nice. Okay. Taking on the favorite who did has to be said. Well, very very impressive. A lot of things fell his way before we talk about the Florida Darby, which of course, we'll also be live on Sky Sports racing on Saturday evening. Betting in the states is going through a massive transformation. It's been legalized most of the big firms are currently on their way, it's something that I want to talk to you and a few others about in the more expanded show. But in terms of. Adjusting. So like those off track betting, and obviously the vast majority of the bedding needs to be done. On course. So we're in a very privileged position in Ireland, and the UK that you can walk into highstreet shop have a bet do it on your phone. That's just not something that you can do in the states, but it's coming. It's there and the models that we have like are the Americans very much. I know you want you embrace this and you're very interested in fix betting in. It's what you prefer. But is the American punchers and the show that you did. Which I hope you're doing again, the horse players to or where the professional bettors are going up against each other and putting up their own money to take each of the wrong. You can watch the YouTube. It's absolutely fascinating. Are they interested in in fixed odds as well and does betting exchanges rank for Americans? Like does that appeal to them at all? Because if the tote is something that you want to get away from then I would have thought that exchanges is probably something you want to get away from his well. And so is it going to be the traditional sports books that really succeed in the states in your view? There's so much to unpack their I'll start by saying that I don't ever see a world where the tote goes away my embrace of fixed. Odds is in a complimentary way to the current tote system. It's very tricky to talk about the macro sports betting issues in the United States. Because really what we are. Is a collection of fiefdoms in terms of our gambling because the states each state gets to legislate what the rules are for within that state. So the opportunity to just have like massive liquidity and money from everywhere where sports betting legal that would be logical. It's not the way it works. Each state's looking at it individually right now, I believe in exchange wagering as a very logical complementary way to get all betting, horses sports. I think peer to peer with the online element. That's what makes the most sense..

"And I'm looking forward to having you. On again to talk about that in in a more in depth conversation in a few weeks time, but the reason bias there it may Dan from time to time. And if you can get the lead, it's very very difficult to claw, a horseback if that horses, well, ridden and his and his quality. So does the widhraw concern you in any way, or do you think as you were looting that American speed will compensate it definitely concerns me? Don't get me wrong. But I think we're being more than compensated in terms of the price. It's also notable that while I believe a bias still exists. It's not necessarily going to be a strong. And it hasn't been as strong as last year on World Cup night when the bias was so strong. It was dictating the outcome of races here. It might be worth something. And being whatever it's worth could be a major disadvantage to my pick Cole front. But I mean, this is a horse who I feel like should probably be about half. If the price. So even though he might be disadvantaged by the draw when it's built into the price like that. I try to just go ahead and have the confidence to stick with the selection. Anyway, I think of a horse like hit it a bomb the other year. Actually, I think that might have been my first podcast appearance here on it was the final for a long the look back in the days Emmett before it was the number one sports podcast on all of IT tunes. And it was just some little racing show. And you had the likes of me on you. We talked about that night the fourteen draw and how that could be deleterious to his chances. But in the end, what ends up happening is. We got whatever it was seven to one on a horse that on form was the three to one shot who knows maybe history could repeat the bad post could boost the price here for coal front. Maybe we have a chance to cash a ticket early on on Dubai. World Cup night and Jose Ortiz for those that don't know is class Reuter terrific writer. Excellent USA rider. You're very good hands with him. I will trust him to be aware. Of what's going on on that racetrack and hopefully put us in the right spot. Okay. I'm Lovin that we will then move onto the twelve fifty which as I said his live on Sky Sports racing. This is the Dubai goal Cup. Which is the recent enough edition cross counter has strong strong favourite the one that interests me is the French runner coal the wind for Freddie head. We normally have vizier about in this race. He won the last three but novas about for obvious reasons this season. Dubai. Gold cup. Peter foreign attell an American race specialists looking at a two mile race on the flat. Now the thing is while some when the the marathon was introduced to the Breeders Cup. I do remember speaking to some American journalists like what is this? This is crazy man, but you come over to chill them. And we meet up with you and have the crack with you. Well, what I'm fit enough to go over and grateful with you last year. Like you love your National Hunt racing. So two mile races. On the flight is not a shock culture shock to you. Cross was obviously a damn good horse last season. And ran a superb race back in in Australia and November and. Is he priced on that? Or is he priced on its Godolphin? It's to by World Cup night. They tend to win. To me. This is the price that makes sense. Honestly, I've got to side with cross counter. You've got the Melbourne Cup winner. But he's got the group form and the resume to justify that place in the market. I just also liked on tape in the Melbourne Cup the toughness, this horse showed. And the youth is another thing that I really liked. There's still room for this horse to improve. Let me put it this way. I'm not saying necessarily want to bet it all on cross counter. But this is a horse if you were talking about exotics would be a centerpiece, and it's not a horse..
