Comment: It's not terribly surprising that the 747, easily one of the most popular aircraft on our site, received such a strong show of support. But the future does indeed look pretty bleak for Boeing's premiere product with orders at an all-time low. We can only hope that the new QLR models will breathe new life into the program. Comment: We are pleasantly surprised to see that most voters seem to concur with our assessment that this is a rather shameless marketing ploy, on the part of the Air Force, to make their vaunted wonder weapon seem more well-rounded.

Comment: Terrorism is a strange business, and those who practice it certainly have an array of types of targets they choose to go after. It seems likely that some major target within the US will eventually come under attack, but we can only hope that world governments continue to go after their organizations and sources of money to keep them off balance. Comment: These results were quite a bit more optimistic than most national polls, but that's not too surprising considering the pro-aviation nature of our visitors. Nevertheless, it is interesting to note that the percentage of "No" votes jumped about 9% in the two days leading up to September 11.

Comment: At this point, our respondents seem to favor military action against Iraq far more than the general public, which makes an interesting comparison with our March 2002 poll on the subject. Comment: The percentage of NASA's budget spent on aviation has fallen so low that it almost can't even be called the National AERONAUTICS and Space Administration anymore. Unfortunately, there are many advanced aircraft technologies that industry doesn't have the money or infrastructure to develop on its own, so more NASA investment is clearly needed.
