TEHRAN, July 09 (ISNA)-Iran has successfully overhauled five 747 Bowings.
This is while before this, Iranian airlines had to send their planes to foreign companies, but today Iran has gained the ability to carryout this service with much lower expenses.
"Of course we can not deny the negative effects of the placed airplane part sanctions, but we have removed many of the obstacles through the aid of airlines," said the executing company's manager.
With parts from NK Ronery Air!......
I wonder if they put F-14 transponders in these aircraft?
If you want on or off my aerospace ping list, please contact me by Freep mail.
Sounds like Babelfish to me.
Man are they in for a surprise when the Boeing parts don't fit on their Bowings.
That's like an Emily Latella moment
Doesn't matter, I doubt they're on the daily IFF list.
Hopefully this image won't be blocked.
"Bowings" is about right, considering their 'prayer' regiment.
No. It's the original source in "English".
I think they usually buy authentic parts through foreign corporations, but I'm sure there are a couple of "quick fixes" with local parts. Those 747SPs are the funniest lookin' things...
Babelfish ain't that bad.
Babelfish ain't that bad.
That's alot of Bowings.
If it Bowing, I'm not going.
I wouldnt let them overhaul a skateboard
Ahem! Excuse me but it's Beauwang y'all!
Parts illegally salvaged from crashes, counterfeit parts and other substandard components regularly find their way into the world's air fleets, sold at bargain prices, often with falsified documents about their origin or composition.
For the flying public, they are a growing peril.
"The whole system is contaminated,'' said Peter Friedman, director of quality at an aircraft repair station in Oakland, Calif. "In my position, I find unapproved parts on a daily basis.''
"Unapproved parts'' is the Federal Aviation Administration's term for components not certified as airworthy - from fraudulently produced knockoffs made from inadequate alloys to recycled pieces misrepresented to hide defects, age or crash damage.
In the industry, they are known as "bogus parts.'' For people with no qualms about putting the flying public at risk, it's a lucrative market. The worldwide aircraft parts inventory is worth $45 billion.
