Hang on, let me get this straight. You have a presentation maybe tomorrow ...or Wednesday...and you're just starting to put an in-depth presentation together?

It's good to see that people plan ahead http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I'd try Wikipedia to begin with, Rolls Royce and some of the commercial airliner 'fan forums'

Ta,
Norris

DC3?

Hon, are you sure this is the subject you want to research/present?........Sounds like you're starting your education from scratch on it, not even knowing how to do a search online or where to look in the library....

We're just reeling him in, Billfish - hanging on until he gets so desperate to know how to put a powerpoint presentation together, he'll pay cash for it http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

Ahh kept seeing "jet" in your posts so thought this was focussed on them......As to the DC3 that was 20 years later in the game....You have a long way to go back for even prop driven planes........

I cannot strongly suggest enough narrowing down your report. If about commercial transportation all inclusively, you'd even have to go back to just before WWI.

*edited* i felt bad for being horrible caus i saw your(Billfish) reply. I have finished it and its pretty good. I start by introducing the surge in commercial jet airlines, then i go back to early flightsincluding the use of Biplanes for airmail, then i move onto piston engined monoplanes, then i go onto how a Jet engine works, then the first jet planes, then the first commercial airline planes, then commercial JET planes, then finally i look into the present and the future and sum up how it has shaped our tourist industry.

Job well done i think. All in all its about 20 pages and will take at least half hour to get through. P.S. sorry to billfish for my first harsh post, i was insulted that you guys thought i could not search for info myself etc, i just like toask here thats all
