Default What other jet related rumors can we start?

How about this one, RAM turbines are reorganizing and revamping in a partnership with SWB turbines and they are soon to release a 60lb thrust turbine that will be the size of a K60 and sell for only $450, made of all chinese sand castings (not metal formed in a sand casting but the sand casting itself) they will run at a temperature plenty hot to instantly turn the sand into glass and operate at unheard of temperatures. All while sipping only .25oz of fuel per minute!!!!

They will have a sole distributorship with BVFEJL except for selling direct at a 50% discount with free shipping. These engines will not need any warranty as they are using a special nitrogen charged air bearing so there is no direct contact with anything in the engine, no contact ='s no parts to ever wear out! Not only that they will run on pure water if you want, first runs must be made on plutonium in order to reach the temps needed to create glass instantly, do not use water on the first run or your engine will turn to mud.

Disclaimer, none of this is true, except for the part that if you had a turbine made of sand and ran it with water it would turn to mud.

I heard John Travolta flew the Playboy GlasCat after the molds were reworked for a proprietary honeycomb merkin composite by FEJ...

I heard they were going to use magnetic displacement instead of bearings so there was zero friction.

I heard TSA now will be inspecting our jets for flammables before each flight.

I heard a well known R/C entrepreneur has acquired FEJ tools and has a couple of well known folks (stateside) redesigning the airframes, but will still conform to existing tooling. Same guy is also having a well known stateside machine shop redesign the landing gears to be built in Asia.....with the expectations to be able to maintain FEJ target prices.

Yellow Aircraft has been purchased by FEJ. They are in the process of re-engineering the entire YA line to their standards.

Word on the street is if you buy a Fry Eagle Jet before 4th of July, in celebration of Imperial Yankee Holiday, you get a box of meat with the Jet!

I heard several jet companies are going to outer fuse skin dimple patterns like they use on golf balls, which creates great aerodynamics BUT, generates back spin, thus reducing landing rollout, even causing a jet, when properly hit...to backup once all tires are on the ground.
