In the small, select world of rugby league twins, they tend to look a little sceptically at Ben and Rhys Evans. Whereas George and Tom Burgess – the latter at Bradford, the former with big brother Sam at South Sydney – are the proverbial peas in a pod, Warrington's Evans boyos could hardly be more distinct."The Burgess boys always say to us: 'You're not twins. Rhys is a slim, blond ghost of a centre, while Ben is dark, bearded and built solidly for the heavy work in the front row.The mammoth plane will have a wing span of 265 feet compared to the 747’s 211 feet,and is designed to fit within the newly created terminals used for the 555 seat Airbus A380, which is 262 feet wide.The new 797 is in direct response to the Airbus A380 which has racked up 159 orders, but has not yet flown any passengers."Rhys scored a length-of-the-field try and I got man of the match.
"It's strange really, but we are just very different people," he says.This image is a conceptual picture from a Popular Science article about the future of aviation (one which proved so popular that it was made available for purchase in poster form) and has been circulated since at least early 1996 in fictitious articles proclaiming it to be Boeing’s response to competition from the Airbus A380 in the commercial airliner business.A Boeing company blog produced by Randy Baseler, former vice president of marketing for Boeing Commercial Airplanes, tackled this subject back in November 2006: From Boulder, Colorado, Walter brings up a topic we frequently get questioned about: the “blended wing” concept.There are several big advantages to the blended wing design, the most important being the lift to drag ratio which is expected to increase by an amazing 50%, with overall weight reduced by 25%, making it an estimated 33% more efficient than the A380, and making Airbus’s billion dollar investment look pretty shaky.High body rigidity is another key factor in blended wing aircraft, It reduces turbulence and creates less stress on the air frame which adds to efficiency, giving the 797 a tremendous 8800 nautical mile range with its 1000 passengers flying comfortably at mach .88 or 654 mph ( -1046km/h) cruising speed another advantage over the Airbus tube-and-wing designed A380’s 570 mph (912 km/h)The exact date for introduction is unclear, yet the battle lines are clearly drawn in the high-stakes war for civilian air supremacy.
