"ZUNUM AERO" (based in Washington State), worked on developing a family of mid-sized, hybrid-electric regional airliners, through 2018; planes of this sort might have have played a part in the re-structuring of the regionals, post-pandemic.......

Today, a long and illustrious era for QANTAS ended; their last 747 flew to California (and, also, into retirement).

The plane also, on its final flight, traced the outline of a kangaroo in the sky, as it headed off into retirement.

Hard to believe that the iconic, once-commonplace 747 is now quickly fading into history.......

Yesterday, I heard that production of the BOEING 777 has been pushed back, due to the pandemic causing less demand for larger jets.

IMHO, the larger the airliner, the easier it should be to achieve maximum "social distancing" amongst passengers and crew.....
