Richard Quest is CNN's "Avation Expert," so when you watch him on air, you expect him to know a lot about aviation.
I run FTVLive.com and I know nothing or little about aviation. So, when I talk about planes and flying stuff it's a good bet that I don't know even a quarter of what CNN's Aviation Expert would know.
So, we were a bit puzzled when Quest sent out this Tweet:
Now, I'm sure and Wikipedia shows that I'm right, that the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, a wide body jet was introduced back in mid 2011, you know, like less than 4 years ago.
So, why the hell is Quest saying it's the only wide bodied plane to be introduced this decade?
Come on man! You're the freaking aviation expert!
Some of the Twitter comebacks were classic:
Maybe Don "Black Hole" Lemon should become the new CNN Aviation Expert.
Update: After FTVLive's story, CNN's Quest did admit his mistake in a follow up tweet:
