I am concerned… Concerned about how much time we spend lampooning Magufuli and his people. If we truly are ahead, such things should not bother us. At all. But that’s just me.

Most of these companies became big during world war 2, so maybe thats where the name came from. Then governments gave them money with abandon so as to win the war, then cold war came and governments had to ensure they had a capacity to manufacture planes. When the USSR fell, most of these companies went bankrupt or were bought out by Boeing or BAE

It originally was a snow mobile manufacturer. They started producing planes in the 80’s after taking over canadair, learjet and some other company

Uongo chief. There is something about efficiency of a turboprop.

Ndege za kitambo zilikuwa zinatumia piston engines na za siku hizi ni jet engines ambazo zinaprovide more power that means flying higher faster and for longer distances than zile za 1940’s. Hizi zinaitwa turboprops.

Turboprops are most efficient at flight speeds below 725 km/h, they are mostly used where high-performance short-takeoff and landing capability and efficiency at modest flight speeds are required. The most common application of turboprop engines in civilian aviation is in tusmall commuter planes where their greater power and reliability offsets their higher initial cost and fuel consumption.
