Re: Wuhan Coronavirus Resource Thread

This is the reason why lockdown was important. Even if govt had blocked international flights, think of the damage these 2000+ tablighis would have caused if they were roaming about in the crowded Indian streets!

Why isn't Boeing 737/Airbus A320 class planes insufficient for AEW roles? I still think A330 is a bit oversized for the AEW role. A321/B737s can now fly for upto 4000nm and can stay in air for 6-8 hours.

Isn't there any Boeing 737/Airbus 320 size AEWS? The newer ones have range approaching 4000nm, can fly for 6-7 hours easily, plenty of commonality with large worldwide fleets & bigger than E3 platforms. Can even get cheaper used ones for quick prototyping if required.
