Tweets of the day:

@a380fanclub Today’s double delivery brings total A380 deliveries in 2016 to 28, 1 more than 2015 and 2 less than record 2014. We won’t see this again.

@Cmdr_Hadfield 14. A solar powered airplane flew across the Pacific Ocean for the first time, highlighting a new era of energy possibilities.

‏@emirates  We had an all-time record delivery of 20 @Airbus A380s in 2016, taking our A380 fleet count to 92.

@JamesDrewNews And so it begins! USAF launches $16.3 billion T-X next-gen trainer competition, seeking 350 aircraft.

@winglets747 I wouldn’t say AirAsia is trying to “steal traffic”. Marketshare yes, but overall growth – consumers & economies win.
