Title: Misc Images
Post by: _AH_DarkWolf on July 09, 2007, 04:59:05 AM
A new forum, a new misc images thread.

Skat, ever the courteous fellow, goes that extra mile to ensure his squadron mates have enough space on the carrier deck.

S~. Nice to have met and flown with you, Doc. Lookin forward to the next time. no worries bout the bolters.. we've all done it.. and will do it again. as as for the little explosion there at the end.. it was way at the other end of the deck and there was no damage to the planes already landed.. the term gutterball comes to mind . i guess on accounta  landing on a carrier with a group of planes parked on the bow is often referred to around here as bowling for AH.
 and that SKAT.. he's such a nice young man. making extra room.. thanks for the pix, DW.

Great pics DW! Thanks for hosting and SKAT (And the umbrella duty).

I wonder if this heroic action on SKAT’s part merits a Meritorious Award for thoughtfulness in providing adequate sun protection for his squadron mates or a Gomer Award for parking his aircraft in a gun pit, lol.

Nice flying with you Doc. We've all leave the better parts of our aircraft to the sea from time to time so don't worry about it.

S~. i thought i scraped some paint off  of my plane last night. BBQ's  handy dandy Betty attack tip  #7a, for those that have gunnery issues such as myself ... I have found that if you cut through the support wire that's attached to the top of the betty's vertical stabilizer, the betty's tail will break off.  but not with your prop.. that would be dangerous.

A picture from one of tonights COOPs

(http://img145.imageshack.us/img145/3010/superseafireshm4.png)

All 8 players survive the mission and successfully land their seafires back on their carrier. SKAT was damaged with no rudder, but still got down safely minus the prop. One of the more difficult carrier a/c to land and on one of the more difficult carriers to land on. Pretty impressive chaps!

Great pics DW. Great work too on the nose art of "Thunder Boomer". It must have been a pain in the butt getting the part of the nose art on the cowl flaps to sit right with the part of it that's on the fusalage.
Title: Re: Misc Images
Post by: _AH_DarkWolf on February 13, 2008, 09:50:02 PM
Actually it was'nt too bad Gonzo. There is some stretching on the cowl flap section. You gotta kinda cut that section up into bits and resize them to get the edges to match as close as possible.

There are many skinners in this squad Hogan, no one can be the official skinner. Besides, I have my sights set on far more lofty positions of power. I'll TOTALLY be the new squadron XO as soon as BBQ gets a load of this :

Gonzo...the BOB English Channel map is a got to see...it is to Europe as the Slot is to the Pacific. It will run on the "slotted" 4.09 but because we are just getting up and running on the 4.09 slot, I put the channel in an entirely seperate 4.09 folder cause I was not sure about potential conflicts... it's running smooth and I plan to run some tests to see if it will cause any problems. The map has London in the Northwest corner, Dunkirk in the Northeast corner, Paris in the Southeast corner and a small bit of Atlantic water in the SouthWest corner, The Bases are configured to repersent 1940 but oddly enough, there are no airbases at Paris...uhmmm?...it is not the quality of the Slovakia map, but hey! it's the Dang English Channel. The install for me was a point and click, then a copy and a paste...Good find Hogan...

Here's a couple from the other night. My engine died, and I coasted back to the island. I tried to belly land it, and as I did, I started cranking my gear down. It touched down with the gear partway down...and coasted up over the end of the runway, and onto the tarmac!  :hahaha-024: Couldn't do that again if I tried!

And a few from tonight's carrier fly in. The most we had was 19 on the deck, if you count Archie's plane that grew ever smaller as time went on... I still think we can do better on a more conventional map.

HARGEISA (Somalilandpress) — Three men from Somaliland who, ever since they were young dreamed of building a helicopter have designed and built their own helicopter in their own backyard using scrap metals and an old engine from a van.

The trio, Mohamed Abdi Barkadle, Saed Abdi Jide and Abdi Farah Lidan said the purpose of their helicopter was to be used to fight fire in the city and surrounding area. They receive no major sponsors, financial nor material support from any one including the government, it is a three men vision and ingenuity.

This is the first ever helicopter built in any Somali speaking state. The fact that the trio could do so much with so little will inspire a lot of Somalilanders.

To many Somalilanders, this is historical moment for Somaliland and it is possible very soon others will start manufacturing their own electronics and devices.

This is the time to support these promising Somalilanders!, all stakeholders and regulatory agencies should rally round and assist these men to achieve their goal.

We wish them all the best from here Somalilandpress, we are certainly with you and we hope all the Somalilanders, friends and others who might be inspired by them get involved.

 I also saw Slikk and Viper astern of the elevator, hovering over the water. So I must have been seeing the carrier, and myself,  a few seconds forward of where those that had run the updater were seeing it.

  It's a real tailhook from an F6F.  It was awarded to the pilot who contributed the most to the squad each year.  The thing is heavy...about 6 pounds

 lol.. uhh, no. He's 10 years younger than I and I had moved out by the time he was 6 which didn't leave much room for comparisons.

 Since our father was asked to 'leave and never return' ( a la Felix Unger) shortly after my departure, he would send my brother to me for a few days every summer asking that I  roughen his edges a bit  because he was concerned that his being raised in a home dominated by women folk was leaving him a bit soft. 

And he's not really bald yet.. balding is more like it.   (6)

Post by: _AH_Gonzo on April 05, 2011, 11:27:08 PM
P-40's were flown off of carriers to land bases during the African Campaign, Spits (Non carrier types) were flown off of carriers to Malta quite a few times, and P-47's were flown off of carriers during the invasion of Saipan.

Quote
On 23 June Manila Bay came under enemy air attack during refueling operations east of Saipan. Two fighter bombers attacked her from dead ahead, dropping four bombs which exploded wide to port. Intense anti-aircraft fire suppressed further attacks; and, as a precautionary and rather unusual move which Admiral Spruance later characterized as "commendable initiative", Manila Bay launched four of the Army P-47's she was ferrying to fly protective CAP until radar screens were clear of contacts

(http://www.ww2aircraft.net/forum/attachments/aviation/64212d1299758494t-p-47-carrier-capable-318thmanilabay.jpg)

(http://img257.imageshack.us/img257/4377/launchsm150pw1.jpg)

Another fun fact... Almost every USAF aircraft during WWII was carrier evaluated. The most promising being nasalized versions of the P-40 and the P-51.

Yet another fun fact... The P-47 could easily have been modified for carrier use as it's under carriage and approach speeds were well within the required limits. It's main draw back was it's weight. It could be operated at such a heavy weight that upon landing it could actually damage the deck of an aircraft carrier!

The Boeing XB-15 was a United States bomber aircraft designed in 1934 as a test for the United States Army Air Corps to see if it would be possible to build a heavy bomber with a 5,000 mile range. It was originally designated the XBLR-1 (experimental bomber, long range). When it first flew, it was the most massive and most voluminous airplane ever built in the United States. First flight 1937.

S~ Lippy, when you put the photos on your Skydrive, you need to click on the photo until it is the only thing showing on the page.  The first time you click on it, you'll see there are slide show options on the right.. that page won't work. click on the photo again, until it's the only thing on the page, then copy and paste that url, and use the image tags.

 the link with the tags should look something like this {img}http://www.yourimageadress.jpg{/img}

 But use brackets [ ], not { } 

 and on the Skydrive, make sure the folder you're putting the pix into is viewable to the public..

"Pvt. John Slaughter of the 116th Regiment, U.S. 29th Division, described a scene. "After dark an enemy ME109 flew over the entire allied fleet. Suddenly every ship in the English Channel opened fire, illuminating the sky with millions of tracer shells. Now that convinced me of the absolute futility of antiaircraft fire. There was one plane that flew in a quite regular course at a medium altitude at a normal speed with about 40,000 guns firing at him and he did two complete circles and went away without a scratch"

Republic made several attempts to further improve the P-47D. The XP-47J began as a November 1942 request to Republic for a high-performance version of the Thunderbolt using a lighter airframe and an uprated engine with water injection and fan cooling. When fitted with a GE CH-5 turbosupercharger, the XP-47J achieved a top speed of 505 mph in level flight in August 1944, making it one of the fastest piston engine fighters ever built.

The Blohm & Voss BV 222 Wiking (Viking) was a large, six-engined German flying boat of World War II, and the largest flying boat to achieve operational status during the war.Prior to World War II, the German airline Deutsche Lufthansa had carried out many transatlantic mail flights. However, their main interest was passenger transport, and they initiated a program in 1936 that culminated in an order for three BV 222 flying boats designed by Richard Vogt.

Construction of the first prototype, V1, began in January 1938, with construction of the V2 and V3 following within weeks. V1 made its test flight on 7 September 1940, carrying the civil registration D-ANTE. During trials it demonstrated that it could carry up to 92 passengers, or 72 patients on stretchers over short distances at a maximum speed of 239 mph (385 km/h).[1] The flight characteristics were found to be satisfactory, but with some improvements required. Further trials lasted until December 1940, when the V1 passed into Luftwaffe service, receiving a military paint scheme and the registration CC+EQ (later X4+AH).

The type was noted for a long flat floor inside the cabin and a large square cargo door aft of the wing on the starboard side. The flat floor was a welcome novelty for that era. Only thirteen aircraft were thought to have been completed.

Originally powered by Bramo 323 Fafnir radial engines, later aircraft were powered by six 1,000 hp Jumo 207C inline two-stroke diesel engines. The use of diesels permitted refueling at sea by U-boats. C-13 aircraft was a sole example fitted with Jumo 205C and later Jumo 205D engines.

ended up being ours, then we gave it to the brits.

to get it air born.
Its also one less left in the world. I try to go out to the shows whenever I can and usually
give them a donation when I can. Its extremely expensive to keep them flying and I worry
that someday soon they won't be able to anymore.

My father flew, among other aircraft, the B-26 in combat during the war, and he recalled they could outrun the 51's due to a water system that could cool the engines down thus enabling the 26 to maintain high rpms longer than the 51's could.

well if you wanna nitpick DW, its actually a B-26 Invader. after 48 they re designated it from A to B, that's when the confusion started.

I tried searching around for TBF avenger and Bennington, found these :

"A TBM-3 Avenger from Torpedo Squadron Eighty-Two (VT-82), flying from USS Bennington (CV-20), in flight in the South Pacific area. The aircraft was damaged when the plane flying above it in formation was hit by anti-aircraft fire and fell on top of it. (U.S. Navy photo)"

In Osprey's TBF/TBM Avenger units of World War 2 there is a color plate of this aircraft, the description for it reads :

"TBM-3 White 113 of VT-82, USS Bennington (CV-20) February 1945

This Avenger was subject of one of the most dramatic aircraft photos of World War 2. Heavy flak damage resulted in the loss of nearly half the port wing, in addition to a five-foot section of the fuselage decking immediately aft of the turret. However, the VT-82 pilot skilfully retained control of his doomed TBM long enough to make a successful water landing. Standard early 1945 colors and markings were gloss blue overall with Bennington 'Christmas Tree', or arrowhead, repeated on the upper starboard wing, overlapping the aileron."

One heck of a bike too, been loving wvery mile. Kinda rare here too, not to many made it to the usa.

And finally what was left of the "Spad's" right wing after the accident. I've heard that that "Able Dog" could take a ton of punishment and keep on trucking, but I never expected that the loss of so much wing would still allow it to fly.

@ Foxbat,

From what I could see from the video, I think the accident was caused by the difference in the types of aircraft in the formation.

Here's my take on (For what very little it's worth...

When the formation flew past, the Sky Raider was on the left wing of the formation and the P-51 Big Beautiful Doll (BBD) was in the lead. During the "Run in and break" over the runway, BBD peeled off first. The standard "Break" part of the manuover is 30 degrees pitch up and 45 degrees bank (Resulting in about 2.5G that helps slow the aircraft to downwind speed) with the pilot closing the throttle about half way through the 180 degree turn that would place the aircraft on downwind. Also, it's usually the aircraft closest to the downwind side of the runway that peels off first (But NOT always).

In this case the pilot of BBD was the first to break with the pull looking very tame, probably to put less stress on the aircraft. When the SkyRaider broke, the pull looked more normal. This would put the SkyRaider inside of the P-51's turn.

To make matters worse, the SkyRaider is much heavier than the P-51. This means that it would have more kinetic energy and bleed speed at a much slower rate than the P-51. Another important factor is that a pilot usually goes "Heads down" in the cockpit to confirm things like bank, pitch and airspeed in the turn. When the pilot does go "Heads up" again, he's usually focused on the downwind because he's almost certain that the lead aircraft is well ahead of him.

All in all a recipe for disaster. I'm no expert, but I've been around the flag pole in formation enough times to know just how bad things can get in a very small amount of time.

In aviation, a really big problem just makes you sweat and usually doesn't kill you. A bunch of little problems however will send you to the ole 6x6 foot plot before you even know what happened.

Post by: _AH_DarkWolf on July 15, 2011, 11:40:04 PM
I kinda wondered why the Skyraider pilot would'nt have been looking up and watching the P-51 as he broke upward, but I guess if he was lookin at his gauges that would explain it.

DW
Title: Re: Misc Images
Post by: _AH_Gonzo on July 15, 2011, 11:51:09 PM
Actually DW, the pilot of the SkyRaider might have been looking out of the cockpit. But even if he was looking for the P-51, he would have been searching on the downwind side of the field (Over his left shoulder) and not in the base turn itself.

Again, this is all speculation on my part. I'll have a look around work to see if EASA (The European version of the FAA but twice as f%#$@ed up) publish anything about the accident.

The volcano destroyed more of the 340th Bombardment Group's aircraft (estimates vary between 78 and 88) than the devastating German Luftwaffe air raid of the 340th base at Alesani, Corsica on May 13, 1944 (about 75 aircraft). At Pompeii Airfield on March 23, 1944 nearly all of the 340th's B-25 Mitchell medium bombers were covered with hot ash that burned the fabric control surfaces, glazed, melted, or cracked the Plexiglass, and even tipped some B-25s onto their tails from the weight of the ash and tephra. No lives were lost at Pompeii Airfield and the only casualties in the 340th were a sprained wrist and a few cuts, but the effects of the volcano on the aircraft proved insurmountable despite a major effort by the 12th Air Force to repair and salvage the damaged planes.
These B-25s from the 447th Squadron of the 321st Bombardment Group passed very near the erupting volcano on their way to bomb targets.

They appear to be hellcats, looks like they have curved ends to the horizontal stabilizers whereas the wildcats are more squared off. The markings are strange, I'm not familiar with nose bands on hellcats other than the yellow ones used briefly in '45.

Couple captions for this photo found on the net :

"The escort carrier Thetis Bay (CVE 90) pictured underway transporting PBY Catalinas and other aircraft in need of repair to Alameda,CA. July 8,1944

"The U.S. escort carrier USS Thetis Bay (CVE-90)enroute to NAS Alameda, California with a deckload of war-weary planes in 1944. The planes visible on deck are eight Consolidated PBY Catalina flying boats, 18 Grumman F6F Hellcat fighters, and a Grumman J2F "Duck" amphibious biplane."

To those wondering about the PPsh submachine guns . if you look closer there is no parachuting devices for that rack system. Also there is mounted below the port wing a tank. The tank appears to be a high pressure air tank. I would bet that those guns are attached to a pnuematic firing device to fire them in low level flight

This plane was redesignated the XB-36H, then the NB-36H and was modified to carry a 3 megawatt, air-cooled nuclear reactor in its bomb bay. The project was to use a Convair B-36 bomber as a testbed aircraft, and though one NB-36H was modified during the early stages of the project, the program was cancelled before the actual X-6 and its nuclear reactor engines were completed. The X-6 was part of a larger series of programs, costing US$7 billion in all, that ran from 1946 through 1961. Because such an aircraft's range would not have been limited by liquid jet fuel, it was theorized that nuclear-powered strategic bombers would be able to stay airborne for weeks at a time. To shield the flight crew, the nose section of the aircraft was modified to include a 12-ton lead and rubber shield. The standard windshield was replaced with one made of 6-inch–thick acrylic glass. The amount of lead and water shielding was variable. Measurements of the resulting radiation levels were then compared with calculated levels to enhance the ability to design optimal shielding with minimum weight for nuclear-powered bombers.

Couple of shots from my trip to the surrounding areas of Calgary, Alberta. Fell in love with the town of Banff, and the badlands were pretty cool as well.

On 8th of May 1945 ,at the End of World War II, the US Air Force lost Airship Republic P-47D-25 Thunderbold at Lake Traunsee , Austria, after it had overflown the Concentration Camp of Ebensee, moving its wings as a sign of liberation. Shortly after that the airplane lost heigth and the airship touched the lake. The pilot succeeded in gaining heigth again, and jumped off the plane, before it crashed. The pilot survived so it was wellknown where the plane crashed.60 years later an American citizen was willing to pay the salvation charges. Now the airship is transferred to the United States of America to be restored there.

Nobody knows what it was, but they tried like hell to kill it.
(http://www.pulpinternational.com/images/postimg/unfriendly_skies_01.jpg)
This photo appeared in the Los Angeles Times and other newspapers this month in 1942 after West Coast anti-aircraft batteries opened up on a mysterious aerial object supposedly seen hovering in the skies above L.A. The object was sighted in the early morning of February 25 and fired upon for about two hours. The next day Army spokesmen said the barrage had been the result of a false alarm caused by war hysteria, which leaves you to wonder what sort of non-existent object could be pinned by multiple searchlights as it moved across the sky.

Another official explanation was that the object was a weather balloon, which of course raises a completely different question, namely, how did more than 2,000 exploding artillery shells fail to bring down something so flimsy? These shells caused three deaths on the ground, and they weren’t even aimed there. UFO aficionados, of course, say it was an alien craft. That’s debatable, not for any scientific reason, but based on simple logic. Consider: we puny humans have already made major advances in stealth tech, yet we think we’d be able to detect an alien craft that came from the gulfs of space to observe us? That’s called pure hubris, and we don’t subscribe.
(http://www.pulpinternational.com/images/postimg/unfriendly_skies_02.jpg)
So that leaves one other explanation. It was a deliberate Army drill involving a weather balloon, an exercise designed to test anti-aircraft capabilities, shock Los Angeles residents and thus gauge the potential for mass panic, and ram home the idea to the masses that the Japanese were lurking out there somewhere. In order to believe this scenario one has to assume the anti-aircraft gunners had the worst aim in the history hurled projectiles, however the three obvious benefits we’ve listed for conducting such a drill make this by far the most logical scenario. Of course in the end, we weren’t there, so we’re only speculating about this obscure historical event. Others have different theories, and some even have eyewitness accounts. If you’re inclined, you can read one of those here.

The 39th Fighter Squadron, a part of the 35th Fighter Group, was a Sierra Hotel sort of outfit during World War 2 and was in things pretty much from the beginning, although their rise to fame really didn't get started until after their assignment to New Guinea. Here's a flight of their P-38s buzzing the strip at 14-Mile; note the gas bags hanging off the port wing stations only. Those aux tanks, along with everything else in the Southwest Pacific, were in short supply and were only used as required to support each particular mission.  Rocker Collection

(http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-OE9lZKBzShY/T4skD07hrFI/AAAAAAAADYo/yxDm8A3eA4A/s1600/39th+FS+P-38+Milne+Bay.tif)
The 39th did a stint at Milne Bay prior to moving to Port Moresby. This Lightning appears to be poised and ready to go, but the severe tail-down attitude indicates that she's lacking ammunition for her guns, rendering her harmless for the time being. The laundry line in the right-hand background of this shot provides a telling indication of the conditions the 39th had to endure while in New Guinea. Pretty much everything was make do and they, along with all the other 5th AF fighter units, made things work with what they had.  Rocker Collection

(http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-saoAuRyi51U/T4slBdWeqQI/AAAAAAAADYw/melDEb2F5PU/s1600/00+39th+FS+P-38+%2338+in+a+log+revetment+at+3+Mile+strip.jpg)
This P-38 had the luxury of a revetment made from logs, which protected it from bomb blast and splinters. Of course, that revetment wasn't much use against heat, rain, insects, or poisonous snakes, all of which were present in great abundance. It was, as we've said so many times in the past, a nasty little war.  Rocker Collection

When aviation historians mention Charles King everyone immediately thinks of his P-39, but he flew P-38s as well. Here's his Number 27 parked in the mud at Port Moresby. We can't say it enough; this environment wasn't the exception, it was the rule. Those guys were hot, dirty, dead tired, and sometimes sick, and they got in the airplane day after day and flew the missions in spite of it all. They got the job done, and sometimes they died in the process. We owe every one of them. Rocker Collection

(http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-LSA2-wnruMs/T4snCbGE76I/AAAAAAAADZA/9rBdb7RNJXw/s1600/39th+FS+P-38F+%2333+Japanese+Sandman+II+14+Mile+Strip.jpg)
 Here's "Japanese Sandman II" at 14-Mile Strip. She's a fairly famous airplane and this is the way we're used to seeing her, relatively clean and ready to go get The Bad Guys.  Rocker Collection

(http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-NJbUIlcnZKo/T4snbp8yRZI/AAAAAAAADZI/Rk1_IRQTUMk/s1600/39FS+No.+33+JAPANESE+SANDMAN.tif)
Even famous airplanes step in it once in a while. Here's another shot of "Sandman", but this time she's off the taxiway and partially mired in the ever-present New Guinea mud, and with a badly-mangled port wing to boot. The Japanese were a skilled and aggressive enemy, determined in their opposition, but you could get away from them once you were out of the immediate combat area. There was no way to avoid the lousy weather, or the mud. Everybody paid the price.  Rocker Collection

You could call it courage, or guts, or anything else you wanted to, but the guys who flew in the Pacific, particularly in the rough days of 1942 and 1943, were a pretty special bunch of aviators. Here's Curran Jones from the 39th looking ready for parade beside his Lightning.  Rocker Collection

Here's Walter Beane with part of his ground crew at 14-Mile. The P-38 has proven itself to be a bear to keep flying in the comtemporary warbird circuit. Keeping them in the air was business as usual in 1943. Rocker Collection

This shot's a little bit closer to the truth. We'll leave today's essay with this shot of Ken Sparks posing with his damaged P-38. Look at his face; you can see the exhaustion. Have we ever mentioned that it was a crummy war?  Rocker Collection

Here, two DUKWs perform a new role — as the pontoon propellants for an “aircraft ferry.” Under a system developed by the US Office of Scientific Research and Development, two DUKWs were joined at the center, allowing an aircraft (in this case a P-38 Lightning) to be positioned on the center span. Obviously the system could only work on calm seas.

136 yard par 3 with the pin in the back.  Figured it to be about 140 to the pin which was in the shadows of the trees. I pulled out my faithful pitching wedge, addressed the ball and off it went.

I saw the ball hit the green in the sunny area but lost it as it bounded forward into the shadows.  My buddy raised his arms and yelled "its in"

Not believing him i grabbed my putter and drove up to the elevated green.  When i didnt see a ball up there i assumed i was long into the trees.

As we parked i saw my ball wedged in between the stick and the hole.  I took some pictures, wiggled the stick and called for the beer girl.


After the celebratory can(s) of beer my buddy didnt congratulate me he just said "Told You So"

All depends on the manufacturer and the age of the mold, Nimbles. You mostly get what you pay for.

In that picture the Spitfire IX coded 2I-E is a Revell re-boxing of the Hasegawa kit. It has issues with being a little short in the fuselage.  :unhappy-059:

The one coded AE-J is a Spitfire XIV from Hobbycraft. It's a very basic kit with not alot of detail.

The Spitfire XII coded DL-K is a new Airfix kit that came out in the last couple years. It's a brand new mold and is of fantastic quality.

The blue nosed P-51D is a Tamiya kit. Tamiya is generally more pricey but are excellent kits, hard to find fault with them.

The P-47 and P-38 you can see bits of and the Mosquito and Typhoon are all Monogram\Revell kits. The Monogram\Revell kits are cheaper but vary greatly in quality. Alot of them date from the 60s and have some detail and engineering issues. The US navy ones in particular were designed as much as toys as scale models. The landing gear can fold up and down and same with the wings but they had to add all kinds of little tabs and things to support this which make em look wierd.

The F6F-3 in the far corner is an Airfix boxing of an old Otaki kit. Not a bad kit at all but I made a mess of this one.

I also have a Monogram B-17F I built a million years ago. Even though they are old they are still the only 1/48 fortresses out there I think and are still great kits.


My "To build" pile is getting kind of silly. I've got:

Monogram B-17G
Monogram P-47D
Academy P-47D
Tamiya F4U-1D
Tamiya Lancaster BIII
Revell P-40B/C
Revell SBD-3
Revell Spitfire Mk.I/II
Revell F4U-4 (I had thoughts of converting this into an F4U-1D before I just bought the Tamiya kit)
Revell Typhoon 1B
Revell Wildcat (Very old boxing of an F4F-3)
Revell F6F-5 (Very new boxing of an old kit. Typical half model half toy problems and the shell eject ports are super long...grr.)
Italeri TBF/TBM 1
Academy Spitfire Mk.XIV

I also have a Trumpeter 1/700 scale USS Yorktown CV-10 and Fujimi USS Saratoga of similar scale but the later has some detail issues..

I havent built  a good model in many years ... gave it up in my early 20s....   girls replaced that interest... now Im old... so I can revert back to my childhood...lol I remember the Revelle models..but Ive only heard how good some of the japanese models are... I think I might just drop by the local hobby shops and take a look at them. Thankyou so very much for your input...   way back when I trended from the scale models into flyable radio control ones.... built two real nice ones but berfore I could fly them.... I had a problems with a live in girlfriend and she made them fit into a small waste basket..... ohhh the pain of it all!! I have a nice hobby table I intend to put together in my bedroom...for this kind of work...rainy day stuff..... right now Im working on some firearm modifications  and mounting scopes on them....but models are truely fun...

called the Bell L-39
http://thanlont.blogspot.com/2011/04/bell-l-39-wing-sweep-evaluation.html

Two war surplus P-63Cs were modified by Bell under Navy contract for flight testing of low-speed and stall characteristics of high-speed wing designs. The aircraft received new wings with adjustable leading edge slats, trailing edge flaps and a pronounced sweep of 35 degrees. The wings had no wheel wells; only the nose gear was retractable. L-39-1 first flew 23 April 1946, demonstrating a need for extra tail surface and rear fuselage length to balance the aircraft in flight - the wing repositioning reduced empennage effectiveness and moved the center of lift aft. A lighter three-bladed propeller from a P-39Q-10 was mounted and the necessary changes to the empennage were made. L-39-2 incorporated these adjustments from the start. L-39-1 later went to NACA at Langley for wind tunnel testing, where much valuable data were gathered. L-39-2 also served as a testbed for the Bell X-2 40-degree wing design.

this is such an interesting photo that i really don't know where to begin. the B-24 in the foreground is, i believe, the first B-24A. then there is the group of A-20's doing a low fly-by and being followed by what appears to be navy wildcats. then some SBD's parked to the right with some biplanes, grumman F-3/F-2 variants? hard to tell. click the image for ultra high-res.

Jack sent that picture in an e-mail with the same caption but I wonder if it's right. Those are skyraiders on the right which would'nt have been on carriers in 45. All the corsairs appear to be the later 4 bladed versions and that skyraider in the front looks like it has the red stripe on the bars of the national insig. I don't think that was used until well after the war.

The new AI sight abilities (or deficiencies) are interesting. A pair of D-9s arrived late over the target area last night and overflew Jack and Twenty close enough that their tags were visible but did'nt see them. They did this twice a few minutes apart. Could have been skill level (they were average pilots) or maybe the darkness affected them?

i’ve seen a lot of these diagrams in books, the internet, even my flight training literature.
the problem is they’ve all been drawn completely wrong & labeled with some mumbo jumbo like lift, thrust & something called drag…

so i thought i’d go ahead make one myself to let everyone know the real forces behind the miracle of flight.

You posted that one a couple years ago.

I tried searching around for TBF avenger and Bennington, found these :

"A TBM-3 Avenger from Torpedo Squadron Eighty-Two (VT-82), flying from USS Bennington (CV-20), in flight in the South Pacific area. The aircraft was damaged when the plane flying above it in formation was hit by anti-aircraft fire and fell on top of it. (U.S. Navy photo)"

In Osprey's TBF/TBM Avenger units of World War 2 there is a color plate of this aircraft, the description for it reads :

"TBM-3 White 113 of VT-82, USS Bennington (CV-20) February 1945

This Avenger was subject of one of the most dramatic aircraft photos of World War 2. Heavy flak damage resulted in the loss of nearly half the port wing, in addition to a five-foot section of the fuselage decking immediately aft of the turret. However, the VT-82 pilot skilfully retained control of his doomed TBM long enough to make a successful water landing. Standard early 1945 colors and markings were gloss blue overall with Bennington 'Christmas Tree', or arrowhead, repeated on the upper starboard wing, overlapping the aileron."

(http://img805.imageshack.us/img805/1074/91019325.png)

4.11 adds some new waypoint options including one to takeoff in pairs or line abreast. These options also allow you to set exactly where on the runway the aircraft start, allowing you to eliminate wasted runway behind the last aircraft. So by using the pairs setting we can spawn all 20 kites on the runway with the lead pair actually a plane length behind where the tail end aircraft used to start, comme ca :

So all you airstart slackers better practice your takeoffs!

good find, i was wondering about this but never looked into it.
i may have to re-do some missions i have in the works like this.

wasn't there another option to spawn planes in parking spaces? or was that just AI.

Is'nt that comming in 4.12? Where you can turn on those taxi arrows to show you where to go? I don't see anything in the 4.10-4.11 readmes about that.

The pairs takeoff should work fine for us but the AI are a little inconsistent with it. The AI pairs takeoff simultaneously and sometimes they spread out and give themselves room once airborne, other times they criss-cross and clip eachother. Since the AI are always just extras and will be behind us it should'nt matter.

Depends how many A Flighters are there...    :surprised-027:

I'll wager it will not cause any problems as long as people remember the left plane in each pair rolls first and to give the guy ahead of you a second or two before you power up. Everyone should have ample runway and the 38 does not torque on account of it's counter-rotating props, if someone still can't get airborne I'm going to cry.

This is my latest project. Im posting here hoping that one of you might beable to help find a gas tank mount for this. Ive got a tank that I can use with alittle refrebing, but, I cant seem to find a mount. The tank mount on the left hand top side of the engine. Ask around if you can. You should beable to find one on an older BnG engine.

some neat publications on this site i was browsing.
http://www.lonesentry.com/blog/

(http://www.lonesentry.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/flying-airport-traffic-pattern.jpg)
There are two general roles to follow in every case, regardless of the traffic pattern. Never forgot them:

1. Keep the pattern in close enough to the field and at sufficient altitude so you can bring your airplane in safely even with the power off, if necessary.

2. In preparing to peel off, don’t come barreling in at excessive speed. The greater the speed, the longer it takes you to slow down. After you are cleared for peeloff by the tower, slow down to 200-225 IAS before actually peeling off.

(http://www.lonesentry.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/identify-when-approaching-allied-ships.jpg)
Note to Pilots: This could be YOU!
Identify when Approaching Allied Ships!

GO AHEAD! Fly over one of our ships without identifying. Test the crew’s quickness on recognition… if you want that plane you’re flying punctured like a hunk of swiss cheese! Then, should you live to add up the count–you undoubtably won’t!–you can flatter the AA crews on how accurate their lead is!

But it’s saner and safer, to identify. Remember, AA crews are plenty yough and trained to shoot. If you approach Allied ships and leave them doubtful as to whether you’re friend or foe, they won’t ask too many questions, wait too long…

Don’t expect crews to take chances. They’ve had ships blown from under them, seen shipmates machine-gunned to death because they were slow to act. And most of the unfortunate cases where friendly planes were shot out of the sky were the fault of pilots who failed to identify their planes as friendly.

So don’t you take chances. Ships will challenge, but don’t wait. It’s the pilot’s responsibility to identify first.

Ships will recognize, but don’t stake your social security on it. They may not be sure, there may be clouds, enemy planes…

In the final analysis, it’s that ship and its big complement against your plane and lonely little you. You’re valuable, but you know which counts more with the Fleet!

A nurse took the tired, anxious serviceman to the bedside. “Your son is here,” she said to the old man. She had to repeat the words several times before the patient’s eyes opened.
 
Heavily sedated because of the pain of his heart attack, he... dimly saw the young uniformed Marine standing outside the oxygen tent. He reached out his hand. The Marine wrapped his toughened fingers around the old man’s limp ones, squeezing a message of love and encouragement.
 
The nurse brought a chair so that the Marine could sit beside the bed. All through the night the young Marine sat there in the poorly lighted ward, holding the old man’s hand and offering him words of love and strength. Occasionally, the nurse suggested that the Marine move away and rest awhile. He refused.
 
Whenever the nurse came into the ward, the Marine was oblivious of her and of the night noises of the hospital - the clanking of the oxygen tank, the laughter of the night staff members exchanging greetings, the cries and moans of the other patients. Now and then she heard him say a few gentle words. The dying man said nothing, only held tightly to his son all through the night.
 
Along towards dawn, the old man died. The Marine released the now lifeless hand he had been holding and went to tell the nurse. While she did what she had to do, he waited.
 
Finally, she returned. She started to offer words of sympathy, but the Marine interrupted her, “Who was that man?” he asked.
 
The nurse was startled, “He was your father,” she answered.
 
“No, he wasn’t,” the Marine replied. “I never saw him before in my life.”
 
“Then why didn’t you say something when I took you to him?”
 
“I knew right away there had been a mistake, but I also knew he needed his son, and his son just wasn’t here. When I realized that he was too sick to tell whether or not I was his son, knowing how much he needed me, I stayed. I came here tonight to find a Mr. William Grey. His Son was killed in Iraq today, and I was sent to inform him. What was this Gentleman’s Name? “
 
The nurse with tears in her eyes answered, “Mr. William Grey………”

I have a very good friend in Dayton Ohio from Joint-Ops, Mr Funflak, aka Gary Webb, retired pilot, volunteer tour guide at the United States Flight Museum, and one of the top in RC builders in the USA and writes for an RC magazine as well are a few of his credentials.. i received an email from him, heres what he had to say and the video as well...
Its hard to believe that those are all RC planes and not real.... some very talented people..

"Here are photos of the aircraft that flew in Top Gun this year that I had the privilege to set on the runway under a sunshade with a cold one provided, in hand and watch them fly! Oh yeah I was flight judging at the time. LOL The Beufighter took the Top Gun Honors followed by the large Beech T-34 in white and yellow trim."

Squadron Leader J A F MacLachlan, the one-armed Commanding Officer of No 1 Squadron RAF, standing beside his all-black Hawker Hurricane Mark IIC night fighter, 'JX-Q', at Tangmere, Sussex. MacLachlan flew bombers in France in 1940, but transferred to fighters in June 1940 and shot down 6 enemy aircraft during the Battle of Britain. He joined No. 261 Squadron RAF in Malta, as a flight commander, and was shot down in February 1941, as a result of which his left arm was amputated. He quickly returned to operations after being fitted with an artificial limb, flying with No. 73 Squadron in North Africa, but in July 1941 returned to the United Kingdom to take command of No. 1 Squadron. The Hurricane is sporting his personal emblem showing his amputated arm waving a 'V' sign. He was again shot down in 1943 and became a prisoner-of-war, by which time his score had risen to 16.5 victories.

interesting picture, it was probably USAAF, we kept quite a few of them...
but it doesn't have the glass front which all the C's had, so it must be a G. but i thought the G's didn't keep those bumps...
maybe they didn't have the flat panels in stock to replace them or something.

here's another G with the bumps. maybe they had the 20mm's equipped... thats why the bump. and when they swapped to 50's after the first 250 were made they didn't need the extra room.

this pictures gun arrangement is even weirder.... must be some one off model, there were quite a few..... check the link below.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Douglas_A-20_Havoc

A-20C
    The A-20C was an attempt to develop a standard, international version of the DB-7/A-20/Boston, produced from 1941. It reverted to the slanting nose glass, and it had RF-2600-23 engines, self-sealing fuel tanks, and additional protective armor. These were equipped to carry an external 2,000 lb (907 kg) aerial torpedo. A total of 948 were built for Britain and the Soviet Union, but many were retained by the USAAF after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. The Soviet A-20s were often fitted out with turrets of indigenous design.[14]

A-20G
    The A-20G, delivered from February 1943, would be the most produced of all the series - 2850 were built. The glazed nose was replaced by a solid nose containing four 20 mm (.79 in) Hispano cannon and two .50 in M2 Browning machine guns making the aircraft slightly longer than previous versions. After the first batch of 250, the unreliable cannon were replaced by more machine guns. Some had a wider fuselage to accommodate a power driven gun turret. Many A-20Gs were delivered to the Soviet Union. The powerplant was the 1,600 hp (1,200 kW) R-2600-23. US A-20Gs were used on low-level sorties in the New Guinea theatre.

i don't know, according to this http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/ops/where.htm it's in washington state at the moment, but probably not...
what i heard was he came from california somewhere and took on 1900 gal. and change aka $16k in gas, i guess he's leaving in the morning.
it was weird he was by himself on the flight being a lieutenant, but he was a really cool guy, talked to him while fueling about all kinds of stuff.

Here's a few snaps from our first AH CVE Challenge.

We managed 12 aircraft on deck, so that's our first mark to shoot for. I think it's a pretty good number for our first go, I'm impressed. In this scenario, for an aircraft to count it has to be sitting on all 3 wheels. Loosing a wing or stab is ok, but if you loose the back half of your plane or nose up or something, it does'nt count.

The deck park consisted of Turbo, August, Bear, Hogan, Mustang, ArchWolf, SKAT, Jack, Nimble, BBQ, Gatling and DW.

12 kites looking good.

The guys that film on those old carriers are located on a cat walk that would put them at just about shoulder hieght for most people (5 feet below the flight deck level I believe to be correct). He may not of even known he was filming the bomb bouncing on the deck untill it went boom. The zoom effect is probably some photo shop. Just my 2 cents worth. I dont DW getting some more ammo to call me Jr. again  :lol

Following a brief upkeep period in Japan, Oriskany put to sea on 1 March 1953 for her fourth line period, Rear Admiral Robert F. Hickey, Commander, Carrier Division Five, embarked. The carrier began combat operations on 4 March 1953 with a small strike on a supply depot south of Wonsan. The next day Oriskany launched a major attack on Hungnam and a series of "heckler" and armed reconaissance runs along the east coast. On the 6th, the "props" turned to bombing depots, trenches and bunkers south of Wonsan and near Hamsong. In the middle of these strikes one F4U piloted by Lt. Edwin L. Kummer, VF-124, developed engine trouble shortly after take off. Aborting the mission, Kummer tried but was unable to jettison all his ordnance, as one 250-pound bomb "hung-up" on the bomb rack. Hung ordnance was an infrequent but not unusual problem at that time and Kummer was given permission to land. Unfortunately, as his Corsair hit the deck, the general purpose bomb broke loose, bounced up the flight deck and exploded over the No. 3 elevator, killing two sailors and wounding fourteen others.

One of the men killed was Photographer Airman Thomas L. McGraw, killed while filming landing operations, while the other was Aviation Electrician Airman Thomas M. Yeager, who died working on a tied down Panther. The explosion riddled the hangar deck below with shrapnel, piercing many of the parked aircraft and flooding the hangar bay with gasoline. Firefighting teams quickly extinguished the fire and isolated the hangar deck, preventing the fire from spreading into the ship. At the same time, Airman Richard D. Donovan - then serving as "hotsuit man" - ran through the flames, cut the unconscious pilot from his harness and pulled him to safety. Damage repair crews put the aircraft carrier back in business within hours and Oriskany began launching airstrikes again on 8 March, targeting railroad tracks, bridges and facilities.

For some reason i cant search with Google it seems to be down :unhappy-059: I wonder if Donovan was recomended for the MOH, for saving the pilot. Flight deck is a dangerous place. The Stennis returned from ops in the war without a single fatality onboard ship or in the air, I cant seem to find the report that was typed up so i am uncertain of the time line, besides I am not supposed to talk about time lines, but for a carrier not to have lost a sailor is a big thing on a deployment. You can probably find it online released by a public affairs officer somewhere.

Circa approx 1925... the original Spitfire racers were on floats

The Supermarine S.4 was designed by R. J. Mitchell to compete in the 1925 Schneider Trophy race. Built by Supermarine at Woolston, the S.4 was primarily an all-wooden monoplane seaplane, although a mixed wood-metal construction fuselage was mated to an unbraced cantilever wing and monocoque fuselage, powered by a 680 hp (507 kW) Napier Lion VII engine. As an exceptionally "clean" monoplane seaplane, the S.4 design was in marked contrast to the biplane Supermarine Sea Lion flying boats which Mitchell had designed for previous Schneider Trophy races, which won in 1922 and came third behind the American Curtiss CR seaplanes in 1923

The pilot escaped from the plane, but left the engine running. An airman jumped into the cockpit and turned the engine off, but he suffered second degree burns.

The Battle of Ramree Island...

(http://i.imgur.com/SWxZ1Nl.gif)


On 26 January in Operation Sankey, a Royal Marine force landed on the Cheduba, which lies to the south of Ramree, to find that it was not occupied by the Japanese. On Ramree the Japanese garrison put up tenacious resistance. The 36th Indian Infantry Brigade landed with RAF and Royal Marine units. When the Marines outflanked a Japanese stronghold the nine hundred defenders within it abandoned the base and marched to join a larger battalion of Japanese soldiers across the island. The route forced the Japanese to cross 16 kilometres of mangrove swamps and as they struggled through the thick forests the British forces encircled the area of the swampland. Trapped in deep mud-filled land, tropical diseases soon started afflicting the soldiers, as well as scorpions, tropical mosquitoes, and saltwater crocodiles.
A saltwater crocodile

Repeated calls by the British for the Japanese to surrender were ignored: the Marines holding the perimeter shot any Japanese attempting to escape, while within the swampland hundreds of soldiers died over the course of several days for lack of food or drinking water. Some, including naturalist Bruce Stanley Wright (who participated in the battle), claimed that the crocodiles attacked and ate numerous soldiers. Wright's description occurs in his 1962 book Wildlife Sketches Near and Far:

"That night [of the 19 February 1945] was the most horrible that any member of the M.L. [motor launch] crews ever experienced. The scattered rifle shots in the pitch black swamp punctured by the screams of wounded men crushed in the jaws of huge reptiles, and the blurred worrying sound of spinning crocodiles made a cacophony of hell that has rarely been duplicated on earth. At dawn the vultures arrived to clean up what the crocodiles had left. . . . Of about one thousand Japanese soldiers that entered the swamps of Ramree, only about twenty were found alive."

When the British eventually moved in on the swamp, they found that of the nine hundred troops that originally fled into the swamp, only around twenty seriously wounded and weakened Japanese soldiers were left. In all, about 500 Japanese soldiers escaped from Ramree despite the intense blockade instituted to stop them. If Wright's claim is true, however, the Ramree crocodile attacks would be the worst in recorded history. The British Burma Star Association seems to lend credence to the swamp attack stories but appears to draw a distinction between the 20 Japanese survivors of one attack and the 1,000 Japanese who were left to fend for themselves in the swamp. Furthermore there is no corroboration of the event by British military reports or by interviewed Japanese soldiers and local Burmese. These figures are disputed and the event has been described as an urban myth by British historian Frank McLynn, who opined that only a few wounded Japanese had been consumed, although he did admit that the saltwater crocodiles of the region were both "known man-eaters and opportunistic killers".

There is another recorded event involving man eaters of a magnitude rarely ever recorded. This event is well recorded by the survivors of the USS Indianapolis (CA-35) out of the some 900 men the went into the waters 317 survived. Now some died of exposure, dehydration, saltwater poisoning and what not so the number of men killed or eaten by sharks isnt very clear. But the fact still remains, I think this to be the biggest single event of the largest number of deaths by animal or fish that is recorded.

a thunderbolt 12th air force flies low over the crumbled ruins of what once was hitler's retreat at berchtesgaden, germany.

skidding down a snowy runway this thunderbolt crashed into a another parked one, note the guy running for his life.

flipped over during take off on a muddy runway, pilot slightly injured and had to be dug out with live bombs still on the wings.
(http://i.imgur.com/X01YIii.jpg)

a quick set of a p-38 of the 339th fs 12th fg which crash landed at vella lavella in the solomons. was a result of a flak hit on the left engine and made it impossible for pilot lt. d.w. livsey (i think the guy with the chops in the second photo) from el cajon california to lower the gear upon landing. also note the nose art "SNAFU"

I think that there's a video of this, but maybe I'm wrong. I know there's one out there of a P-47 skidding off a runway, though a snowbank and smacking into parked P-47 engine to engine and barely missing some dudes near the parked one.

Apparently the XF4F-2 and the prototype XF4F-3 did have two 0.30 guns in the fuselage and two 0.50 in the wings. The 0.30 guns were deleted in production F4F-3s in favor of the four 0.50s in the wings.

Nay they are two different birds, Lippy. The SBD was known as the Dauntless. It was a pre-war design.

(http://www.aircraftaces.com/images/douglas-sbd-dauntless.jpg)

The SB2C Helldiver (Not to be confused with the SBC Helldiver which was a pre-war biplane) was the replacement for the Dauntless. It suffered from a long list of teething problems which delayed it's use until late 43, early 44. Alot of them were armed with 2 20mm cannon and they could carry like 2000lbs of bombs in their bomb bay.

http://mofak.com/Night_Infamy.htm

This unnatural act of flying the Crusader with folded wings was photographed by Marine GySgt George Lord of VMF(AW)235.

It all ended after about a point 5 hour of flight time when the plane was landed safely into the arresting gear with the wings still folded and standing at attention.  Hundreds of hours of structural repair was required by Juan Lara, Jon Kirkwood and others in the Death Angel Metal Shop before DB 5 was once again flyable.

There were two successful flights in the F8E with the wings folded in the same Death Angel squadron at Da Nang in 1966 and 1967.  The first such wing folded flight occurred less than a year prior to our FAC’s daylight demonstration and was a night all weather spectacular.  The 1966 flight was at night in the rain.  The pilot folded his wings to taxi around a PanAm 707 for takeoff.  He forgot to spread the wings.  He took off in the black rain probably setting the night land speed record in the Crusader.  After yanking it into the air before entering the frog minefield, he entered a world of flashing Christmas tree lights with the wing tips overhead flashing green and red and the multiple orange stab-aug lights blinking with every movement of the outboard wing panels and the stick and rudders.  The pilot raised the gear after becoming airborne. Having no idea what was wrong with the Crusader, he turned downwind and declared an emergency on the Tower radio frequency.  With all the flashing yellow and red lights, warning horns, black night, rain, soiled underwear, and uncontrollable urges for terra firma, the pilot forgot to put his gear handle back down.  Being a combat flight,  he had a box fin two thousand pound bomb on each wing station.  The anguished pilot landed on the two 2000 lb bombs with a mighty “Whump!” but nothing detonated except the Commanding Officer after he discovered what had happened to one of his valuable aircraft.  The pilot was medivacked to CONUS with a fractured vertebrae and a tooth-shredded rectal orifice.  Not exactly a hero’s departure out of Da Nang Air Base.

I would not fly that plane if it was me and thank God it wasn't.  Same set of brown tinted pics. #10. It looks like only about 5 or 6 of the whole bunch were issues side arms. Hummm.

some really neat articles on this site, been cruising through it for a while now. (on page 22)
http://thesciencebookstore.com/category/militaria/page/22/

“Not a Display of Toys”, shows
only one section of a large airfield “in Europe” (actually in U.S.-administered
Munich). There’s about 300 B-17’s (e?) parked wingtip
to wingtip, off duty now from the fight in Europe, but (as the caption says)
prepared for a fight in Japan. I don’t think anyone in high command had any
doubt that these planes had seen their last action. The atom bomb worked, and would work again
(and again, and more so if necessary), and the fear that these planes would make
their way East was not a real concern. This photo represents about 7% of the highest number of B-17's in service in Europe at any given time.

one more cool find for today. spitfire beer!

“During the war, the Heneger and Constable brewery donated free beer to the troops. After D-Day, supplying the invasion troops in Normandy with vital supplies was already a challenge. The Spitfire Mk IX could be modified to carry beer kegs. If the Spitfire flew high enough, the cold air at altitude would even refresh the beer, making it ready for consumption upon arrival.”

oh the good old days....
those twin 51's, it was all about the range. ment to escort the B-29's over japan if Nagasaki and Hiroshima didn't work.  :cool:

"On 27 February 1947, P-82B 44-65168, named Betty Jo and flown by Colonel Robert E. Thacker, made history when it flew nonstop from Hawaii to New York without refueling, a distance of 5,051 mi (8,129 km) in 14 hr 32 min. It averaged 347.5 miles per hour (559.2 km/h). This flight tested the P-82's range. The aircraft carried a full internal fuel tank of 576 US gallons (2,180 l; 480 imp gal), augmented by four 310 US gal (1,173 l; 258 imp gal) tanks for a total of 1,816 US gal (6,874 l; 1,512 imp gal). Also, Colonel Thacker forgot to drop three of his external tanks when their fuel was expended, landing with them in New York. To this day, it remains the longest nonstop flight ever made by a propeller-driven fighter, and the fastest such a distance has ever been covered in a piston-engined aircraft."

here he is in betty jo taking off from hickam in hawaii.

never heard of these until today... yehudi lights.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yehudi_lights

Today's experiments with visual stealth have their roots in a 1943 U.S. Navy project code-named Yehudi. The intent of the program, which was highly secret at the time and came to light only in the1980s, was to give Navy patrol aircraft a better chance of sinking enemy submarines. During 1942, German U-boats took a heavy toll on merchant marine shipping off the East Coast of the United States. Aircraft scrambled to attack the U-boats, but submarine captains called for crash dives whenever they spotted approaching planes. By the time an aircraft got close enough to fire upon a sub, it had disappeared beneath the surface of the ocean.

Yehudi's inventors needed a way to make the antisubmarine aircraft harder to see, and they realized that camouflage paint wouldn't do the job: Regardless of its color, the airplane would stand out as a black dot against the sky. The only way to make the plane less visible was to light it up like a Christmas tree.

The engineers fitted a portly TBM-3D Avenger torpedo-bomber with 10 sealed-beam lights installed along the wing's leading edges and the rim of the engine cowling. When the intensity of the lights was adjusted to match the sky, the Avenger blended into the background. Tests proved that the Yehudi system lowered the visual acquisition range from 12 miles to two miles, allowing the Avenger to get within striking distance of its targets before they submerged. A B-24 Liberator bomber was also modified, with similar results.

Yehudi was not put into production, because better radar had already enabled Navy airplanes to regain the tactical advantage, but the idea was revived after air battles over Vietnam. Concerned that the big F-4 Phantom could be seen at a greater range than its much smaller Russian adversary, the MiG-21, the Pentagon started a program called Compass Ghost. An F-4 was modified with a blue-and-white color scheme and nine high-intensity lamps on the wings and body. reducing the detection range by as much as 30 percent.

Ya, Ive seen those. Not out on the trail, but, online. Did a lot to research on it. Its nice, but, theres a few things about it that would give me pause. Mainly, the price, ouch. But, with it being off the ground, winter sleeping could be a big problem. Seeing its purity much like a hammock.. Summer camping could be a problem as well. It being a sigle wall tent, condensation on the walls is going to be a problem. BUT, with all that said and knowing there really no perfect tent. With a few design changes, it could be a KILLER tent and I love the ideal. But, I wouldn't want to have to pack it far. Im sure its heavy.

   This is AWSOME!
  What you are about to view is a A/H1-G D model Longbow Apache Gunship.  They are working in concert with Special Forces, not SEALS, using laser designators to designate where the primary targets are.  The buzz saw sound is the 20mm mini gun , and the hack-hack sound is the 30mm chain guns.  Of course you can see the hydra 2.75 rockets as well as the large explosions being the  Hellfire Missiles.  If you have never seen anything like this before, this is The Army in Action.  We don't get a lot of publicity, of course it is not sought, what we do is covertly done without a lot of fanfare.  We just do it, we don't brag about it.  It is a great light show, but know you are looking through an infrared night vision device so it can all be captured digitally.     Here's a great clip of the "Night Stalkers" in their birds rolling in hot on ISIS with chain guns and penetrators, guided of course - by Special Forces (SF) with laser target designators.
 
The SF guys definitely have their boots on the ground.

   The only guage there that will work with out a vaccume system is the altimeter(sp)and you have to set it at the berametric pressure(it shows 3039)to show how high you are standing above sea level.

Really, didn't know that TD. I was wondering if the altimeter would react to barometric pressure without a power source being applied, but, I don't really care if they work or not. Real nice to Twenty to get them to me. I just thought they were a kewl thing to have sitting around. Besides, maybe one day I can use them in a cockpit for my game. Wouldn't that rock. Wish there was a way to get them to work in concert with the game. But amyways. If I get to where I can build me a cockpit for the game, Ill have them. Be nice if I was good at cabinet building and/or wood working. Buy hey TD. Ill have to get with you and you can explain just how to read this type of altimeter. I understand the ones we use in the game, but, this one has a few things that I don't know what they are and what they do.

located in the quiet town of manchaug massachusetts, it was built in 1884, sits on ~2.5 acres with a small river in the back yard and built like a rock.

French Military History in a Nutshell
Gallic Wars: Lost. In a war whose ending foreshadows the next 2000 years of French history, France is conquered by of all things, an Italian.
Hundred Years War: Mostly lost, saved at last by a female schizophrenic who inadvertently creates The First Rule of French Warfare - "France's armies are victorious only when not led by a Frenchmen."
Italian Wars: Lost. France becomes the first and only country ever to lose two wars when fighting Italians.
Wars of Religion: France goes 0-5-4 against the Huguenots.
Thirty Years' War: France is technically not a participant, but manages to get invaded anyway. Claims a tie on the basis that eventually the other participants started ignoring her.
War of Devolution: Tied; Frenchmen take to wearing red flowerpots as chapeaux.
The Dutch War: Tied.
War of the Augsburg League/King William's War/French and Indian War: Lost, but claimed as a tie. Deluded Frogophiles the world over label the period as the height of French Military Power.
War of the Spanish Succession: Lost. The War also gave the French their first taste of a Marlborough, which they have loved ever since.
American Revolution: In a move that will become quite familiar to future Americans, France claims a win even though the English colonists saw far more action. This is later known as "de Gaulle Syndrome", and leads to the Second Rule of French Warfare: "France only wins when America does most of the fighting".
French Revolution: Won, primarily due to the fact that the opponent was also French.
The Napoleonic Wars: Lost. Temporary victories (remember the First Rule!) due to leadership of a Corsican, who ended up being no match for a British footwear designer.
The Franco-Prussian War: Lost. Germany first plays the role of drunk Frat boy to France's ugly girl home alone on a Saturday night.
WWI: Tied and on the way to losing, France is saved by the United States. Thousands of French women find out what it's like not only to sleep with a winner, but one who doesn't call her "Fraulein." Sadly, widespread use of condoms by American forces forestalls any improvement in the French bloodline.
WWII: Lost. Conquered French liberated by the United States and Britain just as they finish learning the Horst Wessel Song.
War in Indochina: Lost. French forces plead sickness, take to bed with Dien Bien Flu.
Algerian Rebellion: Lost. Loss marks the first defeat of a Western army by a Non-Turkic Muslim force since the Crusades, and produces the First Rule of Muslim Warfare -"We can always beat the French." This rule is identical to the First Rules of the Italians, Russians, Germans, English, Dutch, Spanish, Vietnamese, and Eskimos.
War on Terrorism: France, keeping in mind its recent history, surrenders to Germans and Muslims just to be safe.

That CF-18 is from 425 Squadron, which is based in Bagotville, Quebec. When 425 was formed during WWII it had mostly french canadian air and ground crews and was given the name "Les Alouettes".  An Alouette is a type of bird and there is a french song that goes "Alouette, gentile Alouette, Alouette je te plumerai" which became the squadron motto on their crest. It means "I will pluck you" I think.

The F-35 Lightning II, the P-38 Lightning and the F-22 Raptor – which was originally named “Lightning” – are all fighters made by mega-defense contractor Lockheed. And being a mega–contractor, it has mega history. Here are those three planes showcased under a sky set ablaze with fireworks. Taken at this years Experimental Aircraft Association AirVenture air show in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

The rules of engagement I believe is what separates the savages from the righteous.  We can no longer with the invention of the TV Carpet bomb an area suspected to hold terrorist. I believe that if we were at war with the country as we were with Iraq the ROE would be different. ISIS would no longer be a threat, but because they do not care who dies and shroud themselves with the innocent we can not just drop a bomb on them. It is a different world we live in now. Just saying. Even the warriors that are fighting the Terrorist agree that it is very tuff to weed them out when they know for a fact it is a Terrorist. But if the TV were to show a school hit by a bomb or a miss fired rocket hits the wrong house America today would have a field day and it is the Government that pays the price now. Not trying say it is Justified but it is a different Era we live in now. Even when I was in the Navy during the 80 and into the 90 a display of force like loading missile and threatening another countries ship was deemed unjust and the CO relieved of command and this was during the cold war with Russia.

Per NBC News:

The wreckage of a World War II Soviet plane and the remains of two crew members, believed to have been shot down by German forces in 1945, have been retrieved from a riverbed in central Poland, local media reported.

The plane was pulled out from the mud of the Bzura river, some 43 miles west of Warsaw, after draught caused the water level to fall to a record low.

Polish media said the remains of two crew members were also found. The plane has been taken to a museum in the nearby town of Wyszogrod, where it will be examined.

"It was a Soviet plane. All inscriptions on it were written in Cyrillic script," museum director Zdzislaw Leszczynski told Polish television. "The pilots were dressed in furry shoes and sheepskin coat suggesting (the plane was shot down in) January 1945."

Footage of the excavation on Sunday showed explorers using a metal detector and examining the wreckage's depth with metal pins in the muddy riverbed as local residents looked on.

Related: Nazi Treasure Train Hunt: 'Something' Found, But What? 

"People knew (about the plane)," one resident said. "The wreckage has even been examined by touch several times. However, it hasn't been excavated due to the water level, which is usually two meters higher at least."

Where would the gear go. It would have to fold completely under the wings and the IL2 is the only one that I know of that does that. So, I'm thinking IL2. Kinda neat huh?

I had some records that were being deleted and one of them pointed me to this photo of a B-25 Mitchell taking off from the deck of the USS Ranger. Kind of cool never knew this took place. Keep in mind the Range is a Forrestal class supercarriers , much longer than the original aircraft carrier the USS Hornet CV-8  it took off from.

labor day, monday september 1st, 1952 at 6:42 p.m. a tornado struck the flight line at carswell air force base, fort worth, texas. 76 convair B-36 peacemaker bombers of the 7th and 11th bombardment wings were damaged, knocking out nearly two-thirds of the strategic air command’s bomber force. the air base was also left awash in thousands of gallons of aviation fuel from ruptured fuel tanks. one bomber, B-36D-10-CF serial number 49-2051, of the 98th bombardment squadron, had been blown across the air base and into a ravine over a mile away. its fuselage was broken in half and its tail and left wing were missing. of the 76 damaged peacemakers, only one thrown into the ravine was damaged beyond repair. all the others returned to service by 11 may 1953.

Title: Re: Misc Images
Post by: _AH_Hollywood on March 06, 2016, 07:51:42 PM
Gabreski flew in the 56th FG, whose nose cowling was Red.

The pilot was Lt Edwin Wright of the 404th Fighter Group

scroll down three photos from the link below:

http://www.bbc.com/news/in-pictures-35699521
Quote
Wright belonged to the Ninth Air Force, which, following the ground invasion of France in June 1944, moved its bases from Britain to mainland Europe in order to provide closer support to the advancing troops. This picture was taken near St Trond, Belgium.

It was not the first time Wright's aircraft had been hit on a mission. By the time this photograph was taken, the 19-year-old had completed 39 missions and survived being hit by flak six times.

Wright was considered a very fortunate man by his squadron, who nicknamed him Lucky for his ability to evade death. The hole here measured eight inches in diameter in an 11-inch propeller. If the damage had been an inch and a half over on either side, the blade would have severed and Wright would have been brought down.

Wright died, aged 34, from lung cancer.

~S~ Hey gang. I'm sure ya'll remember me talking about build a cockpit control panel. Well, I decided to make it happen. I'm mainly worried about 'Trim Controls".
So, I got my hands on a old High School Score board control box. That's what I'm starting with. I'm stripping it down and cleaning it up to install a BBI-32 Button Box Interface,

http://www.leobodnar.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=94&products_id=205&zenid=8ee112c2be6112674b26754e28ffa593

which I'm basing it on.. I might even have room to install some of those gauges Twenty kicked down to me. I'm waiting on the mail to get the controller, then I'm going to try to order 3x 360 Degree Continuous Potentiometer for my Trim Controls, which leaves me "32 independent digital inputs for buttons and switches". Which should give me all the room I need to upgrade and install all sort of controls. Right now I'm more worries about getting Trim Controls installed and running. Parts and time, that's all I need now. Ill post what pix I have now and more as I get it all together.

speaking of DIY... my new dog decided to chew and eat a good 80% of the usb wire on my "classic" microsoft force feedback 2... splicing it with a extra usb cord i had laying around right now.
it's basically the only joystick i've used since i started playing flight sims so it's all i know... and apparently very hard to come by now a days. i had to get my newest one from e-bay for a substantial amount of money...

The boat is quite fast...had it up over 40 mph without opening it fully.  I love the Colorado.  It's got lots of power and tows the boat with no effort.  It rides more like a car than a truck, and is very quiet and comfortable.

 That looks way sturdier than the 80 footer I used to climb when I was in the sign business.   The thing I remember most about it, other than the bouncing around,  is how weird it was to have nothing but open air  in front of me on the way up.  On the other hand, all I had to carry up there was my tool belt and maybe a couple of  ballasts or some 8 foot florescent bulbs.

That was probably one of those deals where an American company make products under license. When the war started, they would have been under the control of the German government, and were bound by licensing agreements. I think Rolls Royce also had some engines used by the Germans under license, if I remember correctly.

Had a little crash to day. The wind was up a little and I was running with it. Which meant I had a lot of speed and well. One thing led to another and crash. Hit so hard the battery went one way and the camera went another. The damage looked a lot worse than it was. I small buckling of one of the nacelle which doesn't seem to effect  the drone any. The upper half of the body was popped loss. but, otherwise no problem. Except a buzzing sound in one engine that later jammed that engine. It turned out to be grass seed in the engine assembly. Took it apart, inspected and cleaned it and its back up no worse for wear.

Sure sign your getting old.
Lippy, if you do decide to get one. Start small, try the Syma X5HC. You can fly that one in doors. Then, when your feeling a little braver, go for the one of the X8's. The X5 runs about $50 US on eBay and the X8 around $100. THEN, if your really feeling wormy, you can go get what I'm wanting.... DJI Phantom 3 or 4. They'll run you around $600 for the 3 and $1300 for the 4. Now if you really REALY want to go nuts. Get the DJI Inspire 1 $3000. But, just make sure you learn how to fly a cheaper one first. Your going to crash it. No matter how hard you try. It will happen. but, on the bright, you can get all the parts for them on eBay real cheap and their easy to work on and... upgrade. Got to love those upgrades. FPV, GPS Lock, ground radar, collision avoidance, Brushless motors, etc etc.

S! Lippy. My advice, start low and slow. Small adjustments on the stick go a long way. Your going to crash, no matter what. That's normal. Make sure you completely understand the controls and their function and be VERY mindful of the wind. The X8 fights the wind nicely, but, it can be carried off if your not careful. AVIOD bodies of water at all cost. Other than that, the X8 is a nice bird to learn how to fly drones. Enjoy.

Joke of the day...


My wife and I went to the Calgary Bull Sale & Agricultural Show and one of the first exhibits we stopped at was the breeding bulls. We went up to the first pen and there was a sign attached that said,

'THIS BULL MATED 50 TIMES LAST YEAR'

My wife playfully nudged me in the ribs ......smiled and said, 'He mated 50 times last year, that's almost once a week.'

We walked to the second pen which had a sign attached that said,
''THIS BULL MATED 150 TIMES LAST YEAR'

My wife gave me a healthy jab and said, 'WOW~~That's more than twice a week ! ...........You could learn a lot from him.'

We walked to the third pen and it had a sign attached that said, in capital letters,
'THIS BULL MATED 365 TIMES LAST YEAR

'My wife was so excited that her elbow nearly broke my ribs, and said,
'That's once a day ..You could REALLY learn something from this one.'

I looked at her and said,
'Go over and ask him if every time was with the same old cow.'

My condition has been upgraded from critical to stable and I should eventually make a full recovery.

Thanks, Guys. 

  TD, you guys will be sleeping in the forward cabin - also known as the VIP Suite because it has its own head.Sounds pretty fancy, eh?    From the top it's a boat, down below it's more like a 1960's Winnebago - but with fewer windows and less room.   
 I'll post some pix of the interior soon.

  Yep!  My friend Mike and I are planing a flight out to visit BBQ this Sept. We leave Indianapolis IN. in his 1942 Stearman bi-plane and fly to Hullman Field VA.  Counting fuel stops we should make it in about 7 hours and about $700 fuel cost round trip.

Wanted to show anyone who's interested a comparison of my 35 year old and now dead Battery Charger and the one I replaced it with.
 Tried using dropbox instead of OneDrive to post pix - It worked , kind of. The pic from Dropbox showed up, but it's too big to fit on the screen and it only showed about a third of the pix and wouldn't pan to see the rest - no auto sizing I guess.  Haven't screwed around with the crap photo editor that came with Windows 10 yet.   So for now, still just links to the pix. 

 The old one weighs in at about 45 pounds, and is about 18" X 7" X 9"  - about the size of a mailbox.     https://1drv.ms/i/s!Ak5rS71RlDvgh2gOog_noDz-4i3u (https://1drv.ms/i/s!Ak5rS71RlDvgh2gOog_noDz-4i3u)
 I'm thinking it might make a good emergency anchor.

The new one weighs about 15 pounds and is about 14" X 8" x 2"    https://1drv.ms/i/s!Ak5rS71RlDvgh2k1KoBusYMfgr0G (https://1drv.ms/i/s!Ak5rS71RlDvgh2k1KoBusYMfgr0G)
 It's a little fuzzy in the pic because it's installed in a small space under the aft berth and there wasn't enough room to move the camera around for it to focus properly. 

 Going out for another sea trial today  to make sure it keeps up with demand.
  If it works I'll be anchored somewhere North of here tomorrow night - exactly where will depend on the wind - and hopefully will still be able to get online.

  Looking forward to meeting you in person.  Keep that schedule loose.  I can only get about 10 Knts out of this rig so anywhere from mid September to mid October should be the plan. 

  I'll be underway in a few hours. Just going to top off the fuel and water tanks and make a grocery supply run before casting off. Hoping to be on the hook  somewhere between the Rappahanock and Potomac Rivers, and online tonight.

All guns are below deck.

 Beard has been and will be longer again.  I trimmed it up when I moved East but I'm used to the gut wrenching humidity now so I'm growing it out again.

   Sometimes I feel kinda dingy, but I figure that's just from the heat and dehydration.
    I do not have a small dinghy. It's perfectly proportioned.

TD wins.  I can verify TD does in fact test his gun(sights?) from time to time on the way to target.  Still makes me laugh.

  And yes, Fragg. I believe you would and do. This is AH after all. It  just wouldn't be the same without it.

  Finally made it out and  am travelling North. Currently just south of the Potomac. There are a lot of dolphin here. None close enough to get a good pic of though.  Spent the night a couple of miles out. It was great except no internet there. Wifi connected, but not not well enough to connect to the world. I think wifi is a bit spotty even on shore in the area I was in - it's very rural.  I should be online tonight.
   I  figured out how to get pics to show - Woo hoo!  Not that I've got any to show now, but I will.

BB if u had an underwater noise maker the dolphin would come over to investigate. The Sonar tech I knew real well would go active and whistle in the mic to get the dolphins to come. you could try tapping on the hull and see if that draws them in.

Well, I'm taking the big plunge. Seeing theres no way I can afford to go out a buy a hobby class drone like the DJi Phantom 3 or 4 or the Autel X-Star. I decided to build one. I'm starting with a S500 Quadcopter Fuselage. I figured its a good place to start collecting parts to build this thing. It may take me 5 years to get all the parts to complete it, but, its a start.

2. Am I permitted to fly above 400 feet?
ans:  All models must remain within visual line of sight of the pilot/observer which assures that most models will operate below 400 feet.

3. There are airports within 5 miles of where I fly. What do I need to do?
ans: You must notify all airports(with control tower) within 5 miles the location where you are flying.Information can be found at :
        https://skyvector.com    or   call AMA at (800) 935-9262 and they will send you a latter.

USS Ranger (CV-4)
On 3 January 1944, Ranger became a training carrier out of Quonset Point, Rhode Island. This duty was interrupted on 20 April when she steamed to Staten Island, New York to take on 76 Lockheed P-38 Lightning fighters—together with Army, Navy, and French Navy personnel—for transportation to Casablanca. Steaming out on 24 April, she arrived at Casablanca on 4 May. The new aircraft were replaced with damaged U.S. Army aircraft marked for repair in the U.S., while military passengers were embarked for the return to New York City.

Hell ya I know that boat oh to well. That's the USS Nautilus SSN-571. The US Navy First nuclear powered submarine. Her keel was laid on June 14 1952 and was launched January 21, 1954 from General Dynamics (Electric Boat) Division Groton Connecticut and commissioned Sept 30 1954. Later to be Decommissioned March 3 1980. She is currently permanently moored and on display just out side main gates of the Gorton Navel Submarine Base/School Groton Connecticut. She was the brain child of Admiral Hyman G Rickover, the name sake of my boat USS Hyman G Rickover SSN-709. Among other distinctions and awards. She was credited with laying the way for our current Nuclear Navy.

I asked if I could get a piece of the hull and they didnt just say no they said hell no. Thickness is the issue bro I couldnt just mail it to ya. But some things are now declassed.

 Kinda fancy lookin'.      Good luck getting it all together, Z.  Should be pretty fun to play with once it's flying.
 
  Don't forget the new rules.. From what I read the estimated cost of getting a certificate is $150.  Estimated revenue, or benefit as they like to call it,  is anywhere from $770 million to $9 Billion.  After an hour or so of reading I came across a place where they did mention waivers and exemptions for recreational/ hobbyist use - so maybe not everybody needs a certificate.

   My friend had over 2 grand in his.  Checked everything out before first flight. At 300 feet one of the props flew off and it crashed and caught fire...the battery burst into flame. Tightened 3 blades but not enoghe on the 4th. We all cried.

Ya BB, I think I don't have to worry about that, yet. BUT, I don't want to move in to the commercial end of it. Its a big wide open market right now with a ton of potential.
It would be nice to take something I enjoy doing and turn it in to something I could make a living off of,,, for once.

Got my last motor in today. Wish I felt like wiring it in, but, I was down all day. Now I just waiting on a charger and gimbal. After that, programming, bench testing, tethered flight testing and if all goes well. Flight Testing

TD, so far. Without camera added in to cost because I already own one.
So far it has cost me $546 without camera. With it. $946 and change. But, Ive got the best you can get when it came to parts. All top rated and brand named.

   Took a tumble off my bicycle when a car pinched me between it and the curb.  I chose to try and jump the curb instead of letting the car hit me. Got the front wheel up and over  but the rear wheel  slid along the curb and out from under me then  gravity and momentum did the rest.

   WOW!  That really hurts the next day. My whole shoulder joint has moved forward about 3 inches. It took time to do it. Last summer I tried to get my motorcycle (350 lb.) up on the center stand and I heard something pop. Now I think, at my age, it is( atheritice)sp setting in. Something in the joint catches when I raise the arm.  That is the way things go when you get into your 91 year.

 Had a bit of good luck today. Long story short. Ive been locking horns with Samsung for the past 8 months over a deal they made my mom and then didn't hold up their end of the deal.
Ive been trolling the FaceBook page for about a month now and in response. Samsung decided to send me these little babies. Yup, Samsung Gear VR. Ya'll have GOT to try these things out. Their amazing.
Anywho, Id thought Id share this with you. Oh, I did go back to Samsungs site and told them thanks and this made up for the trouble. I'm not a total heal.

wrong, this one will actually have a pilot on board.
guy built himself a 1/3 scale B-17.. not a scaled down plan, a scaled up one from a 1/9th scale RC plane.
he built everything himself apart from some landing gear components and the engines/props.
got certified by the FAA to give it a go last week, only done taxi tests so far.

(Giggle) per flight you say. Well, my last UAV cost around $1000 with the gopro to build. I flew it maybe 20 times before my crash. So... that 1000/20,,,,, (Muddering sound and the faint smell on machine oil getting to hot) "one knot knot knot, halfies, hand knot," about 50 bucks per flight.
Title: Re: Misc Images
Post by: _AH_z5o on February 06, 2017, 08:47:36 PM
Yes it is Nimble, but, arnt they all. And VERY addictive.
Just got my new Gimbal in. Its a much nicer one than I had before and boy is it sweet. It allows me to use my Gopro for not only recording, but as a FPV camera at the same time. Save weight, power and giving a much much better realtime view on whats going on around me. The only down side is, it cost about 3 time more than my last one which was a cheapO one from China.

  Looking towards where I used to dock from where I'm docked now. The old dock is just to the left of the blue roof where the sailboat facing away from the camera is.

S~ All,

Thought I would share a couple of photos that I found a couple of weeks ago.  (http://www.aceshigh.ws/forum/Smileys/default/drinking-29.gif)

Chuck Yeager (11.5 aerial victories WWII), Bud Anderson (16.5 aerial victories WWII), and me  (http://www.aceshigh.ws/forum/Smileys/default/drinking-43.gif)

(http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b123/DHumphrey/Chuck-Bud-I.jpg)

Gunther Rall (Luftwaffe JG-52, 275 aerial victories, 80% on eastern front) and me  (http://www.aceshigh.ws/forum/Smileys/default/drinking-43.gif)

(http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b123/DHumphrey/GuntherandI.jpg)

These pic's were taken at an airshow near Detroit, Michigan.  After the airshow, the organizer's put on a dinner and the three of them were the special guests.  I was able to speak with them about their experience's during their flying days.  If you look in the background you'll see a P-51 parked near the hanger doors.  That P-51 is "Glamorous Glen III", flown by Chuck Yeager while assigned to the 357th FG in WWII.

The real treat was when the folks were filing out, my father (Ed), uncle (Addison), and I were talking with an elderly gentleman at the wing tip of that plane.  An African American, 80'sh.  We were talking airplanes when he looked at me and asked, "Are you an aircraft mechanic?"  I said, "Yes Sir, I was in the Army and was trained as a helicopter mechanic."  He looked at me and said, "I was trained as an aircraft mech as well by the Army, I was then shipped off to Italy to serve with the 99th FS, 332nd FG."  That floored me as I was speaking with a Tuskegee airman face to face.

Just then Bud Anderson, Chuck Yeager, Gunther Rall, and another shorter gentleman walk up to our conversation.  Chuck looked at the man and asked, "Mike how you doing? Are you giving this young man the once over about the plane?" Mike said, "Hi, Chuck, yeah this kid is an Army aircraft mech too." At this point I felt somewhat embarrassed.  Mike then said to me, "would you like to get in the plane?" Of course I said "YES".

Mike then looked at the shorter man, he was wearing a straw hat, and asked, "Jack, how about letting the kid sit in your plane."  The man said, "Sure if he can open it up."  I climbed on the left wing, popped open the canopy handle and climbed in.  Next thing you know Chuck and Bud were on either side of me standing on the wings giving a personal once over of the cockpit.  I couldn't believe what had just happened.

I climbed out of the cockpit and shook everyone's hand, thanked them all for an awesome day.  As my dad, uncle and I walked away heading back to our car, my Dad said, " Do you know who that man was in the straw hat is?"  I said, "nope".  He said, "that's Jack Rouch."  At the time I still didn't know who he was, later I found out he's the Owner/Operator of Rouch Racing (NASCAR).  (http://www.aceshigh.ws/forum/Smileys/default/drinking-29.gif)

Unbelievable man a day of a life time. And Gunther Rahl (is it Rall or Rahl not sure) to boot. Dave you sound very young on comms I was surprised at the photo not what I expected, but I should have the way you speak and your respect of everyone very mature. Incredible story. Jack lost an eye in a landing crash about 5 years ago. He crashed his lear Jet I believe comming to a race. Jack has done well for himself in Nascar. Though I think he only has two cars in Monster Energy and 2 or 3 in Exfinity.

the douglas destroyer.

The prototype first flew on 8 April 1943, demonstrating excellent performance, being much faster and carrying nearly double the bombload of the Helldiver, and orders for 358 SB2D-1s quickly followed. The U.S. Navy changed its requirements, however, wanting single-seat carrier-based torpedo/dive bombers without defensive turrets, and Douglas reworked the SB2D by removing the turrets and second crewman, while adding more fuel and armor, producing the BTD-1 Destroyer. The orders for SB2Ds were converted to BTD-1s, with the first BTD flying on 5 March 1944.

The first production BTD-1s were completed in June 1944. By the time Japan surrendered in August 1945, only 28 aircraft had been delivered, and production was cancelled, along with other aircraft types that had been designed from the start as single-seaters, such as the Martin AM Mauler.[4] None saw combat action. In any event, Heinemann and his team were already working on developing the single-seat BT2D that became the Douglas A-1 Skyraider.

BTD-1

I received a notice also, that they would no longer allow third party hosting. Didn't see the price. Funny, I've been using this for years, and there was never a problem until now.

If you can recommend a better site that will allow third party hosting, I will move everything from Photobucket. Not going to pay them a ridiculous fee for something that was free for years.   :unhappy-059:

Just a tip on using Postimage, once you've uploaded the picture right click on the image. If you are in Firefox you can select Copy Image Location. If you are using IE click on Properties and you can copy and paste the address. Either way will get you the URL for the image file itself, you can then use the Insert Image tags when posting and paste that URL in there to make the image appear in the post.

So for example for the picture you posted Turbo, its the difference between the URL to the page with the image (https://postimg.org/image/e8pnnivz9/) and the URL of the image itself (https://s2.postimg.org/xqkb3gsx5/image1.jpg).

Also, is it just me or is this the first picture of Turbo we have seen where he is smiling? He normally sports a rather stern look. He must be getting soft in his old age.

Post by: _AH_DarkWolf on September 18, 2017, 11:22:02 PM
Speaking of propellers, I think I mentioned this to you guys before but I never posted up pictures. My grandfather was in the Royal Canadian Corps of Electrical Engineers during the war. He arrived on the continent about a week after D-Day and his unit followed the Canadian Army through France, Belgium, Holland and into Germany. The engineering units had these huge trucks that were like mobile workshops with every imaginable piece of equipment and alot of trench art stuff came out of them.

This is a cribbage board that was made for my grandfather by a buddy of his. Its made from a slice of propeller, those are his initials in the board itself. It has a threaded hole drilled into the top with a stubby aluminum screw cap that acts as a storage for the four pins. There is a peg on the back on one corner so it sits flat on account of the slight twist. I assume the twist is not damage but is part of the shape of the blade from where it was cut from. A couple of the holes in the board are not very deep, I think the guy snapped off some drill bits making it. I thought way back in the day there was talk it was from a german aircraft but my brother says he was told by my grandfather that it was from a B-17.

It's powered by two V-12 Allison P-38 engines, combined horse power is 2,200.

Not much, but it should get me to the other side.

Yep.  Lake Tahoe has the California/ Nevada state line running north to south through it.  It's also rather famous for the wood boats that go there. 
 Pretty sure that boat is one of them.  Now we know where Hogan goes when he disappears for a week or two at a time.

It's not too different from being in the water,  except for the ladder.

It's pretty comfortable aboard Lippy, not what anyone would call a performance boat. Lots of weight keeps her steady and the mid ship cockpit makes for feeling less of
 any pitching.  The  furthest I've been able to sail in a day is equivalent to about an hour's drive in a car  but the view is better and there aren't any stop signs.

 Cool lookin' flying saucer, Z .. except it looks like it would be easy to get lost in space in that thing.  Don't remember the Oblivion movie at all, but I'm not  much of a movie person. Did you paint that drone thing or is that different color filaments?

Finally back in the water now. Engine is aboard, but not running yet. Still putting it back together.

Im going to hold off painting t til I get some filler to fill in the gaps on the spine and a airbrush so I can do the paint job right... I hope. Now, if I was rich I would have someone thats really good a painting models to paint it up for me. But, we do what we can when we can

No, it has 2mm thick walls with a 20% infill. It kinda looks like  honey comb structure on the inside. I can very that from 0% infill to 100% which is solid along with the thickness of the shell or walls.

Here are a couple of pics from the Hawaii County R/C Club on the Big Island near my home town of Keaau.   :)

The Red Tail P-51 (FMS V-8) is what I flew today.   :)

Our field is roughly 600-700 ft long and 20 yards wide.  It's located on an old airport radar site used in the 1950's.

We normally have only one or two planes in the air at a given time, so no collisions that I've witnessed.

No ATC, however normally the other pilots are watching who's flying and we always get comments on our landings.

Well, your kinda right. When I got the honor of painting the Rickover (giggle). The red came up a lot further. Well over the Sonar Dome. The only time you could see it was in drydock. Otherwise it was green with,,, whatever that nasty stuff it that grows on it was. But, I DO need to repaint the black. Im NOT going to sand it any though. I want the paint to stack up making it appear there is a topcoat of non-skid on the black paint. Im thinking about a flat to charcoal black over coat on the topside. I just got to get the paint first and recut the masking for the stern as well as the bow. Which is a pain. Also, even though it suppose to be a 688. Its not even close. Theres a lot of stuff missing from the outer hull that only a 688 had. But, it was free minus the cost of filament to print it and paint to paint it. Maybe when I get better with my CAD software Ill reimage the stl file to more the likeness of the real boat.

I ALSO found these to print to go with it.

Yup, those are a copy of a BF-109 Throttle Assembly

Now the colors are going to be incorrect on mine. All I got is Red, Blue and Black right now and the red and the Blue dont want to print right for some strange reason. Most likely it due to the fact that their a cheepo brand and are full of inconsistencies in  filament diameter and  maybe a little contamination due to oil or Moisture. Who know . So, it might be a matter of getting my airbrush out and painting them.
 Now then. When I get another Throttle Quadrant to go with it. Ill try to find a BF-110's
Ive already found a set to a 373 but...

Ya, but, its more about where I  have to mount it  vs. the size of the prints. Their a bit heavy and the throttles pigs are kinda flimsy. They would make it a lot easier to break one off with them installed and I tend to be kinda rough one my equipment when I get excited.

~S~ Gang. Its not often one of my hair brain ideals work. But... This works. I took two Grandstream GPX-2000 IP VoIP business phones and got them working across my home LAN Network. One directly off the router and the other over at my moms house on a wifi extender WITHOUT using a SIP or IP PBX server. Which cost far more than this hick can afford. This way. If she need to get a hold of me. All she has to do is dial my extension "#5" or the IP address that is assigned to the headset shes wanting to call. This is far more reliable of a system than trying to call my cell phone which doesnt work 2/3 of the time. Later if I want. I can install a IP PBX server and be able to get a outside line by dialing *9 then what ever number Im wanting to call. Im only limited by LAN connection by the number of ports I have on my router and wifi extender. Which as of now is 8. Later I can add a PoE Switch and get as many as I want along with wifi camera's.  Pretty nifty huh? The blue tape is hiding the IP address to that headset. I didnt think it was a good ideal to post that in a open forum.

So, 13 is definitely not "Fuel Level". I closed my rad and hit WEP and it went up.

I did some poking around, that gauge used to be the fuel gauge but in one of the official patches they changed it to make it more accurate. So its now cylinder head temp as it should be. Apparently they failed to model the fuel gauge in the F6F, so they applied that functionality to the Fuel Pressure part of gauge 17. So Z was right, it is acting as your fuel gauge.

S~ All,

I found these pic's today and framed them up ... damn, a "Blast from the Past"

Here's my Huey, Tail # 68-22685, UH-1D, pic taken in the fall of 1980 at Ft. Hood, TX, the unit was in the 124th Maintenance Co. , I was 18.  :)

(https://image.ibb.co/hqW4RV/20181024-093035.jpg)

The second pic is of my UH-60 section in Korea, assigned to the 5/501st in 1989-90.  I'm in the center just beneath the center windshield, UH-60A, during Team Spirit.

(https://image.ibb.co/kPF9tA/20181025-213145.jpg)

I didn't take very many photos when I was in the Army, so I'm glad I was able to find these.

I finished the cabinet lighting and installed a cable rack to keep everything neat as possible. Still waiting on a Power Strip and a replacement Patch Panel to arrive plus 1000' of Cat 5e cable. But, the lighting worked out far better than I thought it would. Door closed, its red. Open its a funky white.

Update on my Network/Network Server build (Pix 1). Ive got all the Cat 5e ran and RG45 wall mount Boxes mounted.. Everything seems to work correctly so I guessing I got the wiring correct. My wireless access point (Pix 2) is working GREAT. FAR better than the wifi router that my ISP provides. My coverage has more than tripled. Ive connected 3 GrandStream VoIP network phones (Pix 3) to the network and their working perfectly now. Ive got plenty of PoE sockets to add more or even some network cams later. Im planning on at least two more phones later down the road. The next thing I want to get started on is a, Micro ATX or Mini ITX based server or two and MAYBE a Rack Mount Router. That will be a challenge to get working without a T1 connection. Im hoping I can find one that will allow me to keep using my current landline setup, DSL. Then a Firewall to hide the network from,,, prying eyes. Im wanting to set this thing up to where I dont have to use ANY of my ISP's equipment. Im also running two "Smart " TV's on the network and a 8 cam security system with DVR. (silver box on top of stack (Pix 1)).

I was up til 3am getting it to where its at now. Those servers were VERY heavy. Id say somewhere around 40 pounds or more. They came out of a working system so they should be gold.

Until. MS decide to push a BIG Win10 update to my server thats running on Win10. IT completely shut down my network. Now I cant share shoot. I just dont understand what has change. My server see's my main PC, but, my main PC DOESN'T now see the server. Grrr This is why I never really cared to much for networking.

Here's some pics of the new build.

Specs:

Asus ROG Strix X470-F Gaminghttp://
AMD Ryzen 5 2600x
Patriot Viper RAM 16 gig, XMP enabled
Corsair CX750 PS
MSI GTX1060 Gaming X 6 gig
Enermax Ostrog Adv case
Windows 10 Pro

Build is running great! Not too many problems getting set up. As I mentioned, the CPU temp fluctuates, which seems odd to me, but apparently that is common with this processor. Checked the clock speed, and it is running at 4.125 to 4.150 ghz, and according to Ryzen Master, it is already running in Precision Boost Mode...the thing is overclocked out of the bos. Case has good airflow, with 2 pre-installed fans in the front, one at the back for exhaust, and I added two Corsair SP-120 fans in the top. You can feel the air pulling into the case. The GPU temp on the old machine was hovering around 55-58 degrees. This one is running around 43...

So far, I like the Windows 19 Pro, much more than I thought I would. Especially like the Windows Hello, where you only need a pin to get in.

Still a lot of game settings to fix, and some other things to work on. Need to get a new TrackIr5, and it looks like I may need to get a new throttle. Kept wondering why the lights would go out on it. Moved the cable around tonight, and it went out...think the cable is going bad. Had this a long time, and it has worked great (Thanks Lippy for the throttle). Will get a CH Pro throttle when I can afford it. Got to take care of other things first.

Finally got the pictures to work from Dropbox:

(https://www.dropbox.com/s/wcg5i1yyvbh97bd/20190417_070945.jpg?raw=1)

(https://www.dropbox.com/s/9qxj6p6iogyiof1/20190415_065650.jpg?raw=1)

Case was a clearance item at Fry's...got it for $50. Couldn't pass it up. Great airflow and lots of room to work. It is the new version of the case I was using. Also has a side panel with an expanded side, so you can route the cables on the backside, clearing up the mainboard area for better airflow. Still need to do a little work on that...panel is a little tight. Think I can get the cables closer to the board, so the panel will go on easier.

Any recommendations on a better CPU cooler? Temps right now are in the 40's, but I think I can do better. Might find something a little quieter.

Olds it was my pleasure to help a friend out. That PC rocks bud, looks like your going to be shaming some of us real soon with that monster. I wish I could help more but it looks like your just about covered.
I have heard AMD's are a bit jittery. My second PC was a AMD processor and it ran till it was so outdated I had to replace it. When I built mine it seem the gaming rights to the king of the hill kept going back and forth between AMD and Intel, at the time INTEL was on top. I dont believe you should have much trouble at all.

Needs a little work, but it runs good, and the price was right. Got a lot of features, drives good, and it is comfortable.
Get it cleaned up really good, and it will look sharp.

Just got back from Las Vegas and watched the first race of NASCAR Chase. Had the time of my life. Karen encouraged me to go and do the Richard Petty's NASCAR Experience, were you drive a 600 HP NASCAR race car. I bought 4 8 minute sessions on the track. you drive alone in the car with a spotter telling you what rpm to maintain, depending on how well you listen determines the how fast your permitted. I wanted to drive the number 78 Truex's old car but someone just wrecked into turn 2 wall. Oh well so I drove the number 4 car Harvick's for 4 sessions of 8 minutes each. Once you pull away from the pits the time starts, you have a spotter that talks you threw it all. * minutes got me 6 laps each time for the first two sessions and 7 for the last two sessions. After each lap you are told to increase the RPM. I started with 4200 and moved up to 4900 my first two 8 minute sessions the last two 8 minute sessions they bumped the rev limiter to 5400. The spotter and the crew chief were so impressed they left me alone to drive as fast and as close to the white line as I felt safe doing, I was alone on the track as well. I hit a top speed of 168.55 and an average speed of 155. Which was fastest on Sunday. The heat was so hot when I got out of the car the helper Dressed in the blue shirt he garbed my arm to stable me. I wasnt accustomed to the G's and the affects. Afterwards my shoulders neck and legs all hurt pretty good. My legs swelled. my shoulders and neck from holding my head still. They had removed the head rests so you can feel the full effect of the G's. on my last two sessions would allow the Hones device support my head. I was tired and very hot.

According to the crew chief they have 4 cars each with various seat settings. he told me he was not positive he could fit me in the car. But the 4 car was his biggest car, meaning the distance the seat sat from the steering wheel. I climbed in just fine with one exception the roll bar that sits right at the top of the door. My head hit it and I was just barely able to squeeze in. My knees where pretty close and I had to prove that I could turn the steering wheel without hindrance. In one of the first email I was giving it stated that the tallest you could be is 6 foot 7 inches, I am 6 foot 6 and 1/2 inches. But I made it and getting out was easier. I wont be forgetting the experience, I would love to drive somewhere around 6000 RPM's. But I am not sure how I would handle it at 59 years old. I was sore for about two days the worst was in my legs. Funny thing is I am wearing the number 78 hat Martin Truex Jr. and the race that night came down to the 4 car and Martin. Martin won.

Yeah they have roof flaps but at one time they added roof escape hatches back when the window openings were kinda small. You don't remember that? I guess it was like the early 2000s.

I am not sure what you found but the roof flaps NASCAR uses aren't for escape they are designed to keep the car grounded when turned backwards. Dont know what pics you have but I would have to see a race with those flaps, BTW they open the wrong direction any air get under them bye bye flaps. Maybe you need to watch this short video. https://www.nbcsports.com/video/inside-nascar-roof-flaps-play-critical-role
Title: Re: Misc Images
Post by: _AH_DarkWolf on September 20, 2019, 01:14:19 AM
Yes, the little roof flaps keep the card on the ground, this is different from that.

That picture shows Michael Waltrip after he won, I think it was the fall 2003 race at Talladega. The windows were kinda small in the old cars and there was some concern about a driver's ability to get out if the car was stopped against a wall on the driver's side. So it became optional for teams to add that roof escape hatch. A couple years later when they came out with the first new gen cars, part of the redesign included a higher roof and larger windows which negated the need for the roof hatch.

When Waltrip won that Talladega race they were a new thing so he celebrated by popping out of the hatch.

I was reading an article about racetracks and they mentioned the one in Nazareth, Pennsylvania. You guys who are into racing might remember it, it used to host Indycar, NASCAR Busch and Craftsman Truck series races amongst others. It got bought and its races moved elsewhere after 2004, guess the owners refused to allow it to be used for racing anymore since it competed with other nearby tracks they owned. Now its kind of an overgrown wreck, sad.

 The brother I was talking about last night lives so close to Pocono Raceway you can hear the races from his house. It's  2.5 mile tri oval with a pretty interesting layout. Each turn is a duplicate, as much as a turn can be duplicated ( banking and radius), of one of the turns on three other well known tracks.

27 separate pieces (actually more but I combined some of them) that had to be aligned with eachother and in some cases skewed or curved to compensate for distortion in the texture mapping. All this to create six simple straight lines on the aircraft.

As far as I know the official ones are the only ones available. The ones for the three latest allied aircraft are a little disappointing compared to the Spit IX and P-47 ones. Alot of layers are not separate and are combined together, no full sets of invasion stripes, no theatre bands. The P-51 did come with one version of 352nd FG nose and the 78th FG's black and white checker nose but thats it so far. Wish they had included the 357th nose checkers. ICDP said he would inquire about some of this stuff, we'll see if anything comes of it.

~S~ Gents. Let me explain a little why I havent been around. As Im sure you all know. Ive been taking care of my mom and my disable brother for the past 4 going on 5 years now. The stress of everything finely caught up to me and I had to take a break from everything. Well, last night around 2 am things got worse. I woke up and walked in to my lab which is located at the front of my mobile home. No sooner set down at my PC when CRASH!!! My house literally jumped and shuck like hell. It seems a large pine tree decided to fall right on it. As you can see below. Ive wanted get it, but, never could afford insurance on it. Now, I have no clue on what to do. Ive lost my house and I have no way to fix it or replace it. Fortunately, it seems someone was looking over me. Because, if I had waited to get up out of bed just 5 more minutes. I'd had that tree in my lap. So, thats something I guess. Anyways. thats that. Merry Christmas to me I guess. Ill try to get back flying as soon as I can, maybe tonight. Just depends on how today goes. See ya'll soon. S! Gents

Title: Re: Misc Images
Post by: _AH_z5o on December 11, 2019, 03:16:01 PM
Hey gang, heres a little update.
The damage is bad, but, it could had been alot worse. If the tree would had been just a little closer to the center line of my tailor it would had split my house in to. Theres a large hole in the roof about the size of a basket ball as well as a few torn and crushed side and roof panels. It looks like that corner has been bent/mashed down and some damage to the roof and wall structure. I spent the biggest part of the day placing tarps over the damage area as well as cleaning up all the debris in my bed room.  Hopefully the tarps will hold til better weather this spring so I can try to do repairs. Thatll give me sometime to gather up so cash to try to fix it. But, for now I think itll keep the rain and snow out. On the up side. I dont have to worry about that damn tree anymore. And now I can honestly say I know what a depth charge attack feels like. When that tree hit, it looked and sounded like a scene out of a old B/W WWII sub movie where their under attack from depth charges. My trailer physically jumped up sending everything in it flying. Damn-est thing Ive ever seen. Everything that was hung on a wall came off. Including my Martin 6 string breaking two strings and my Fender Stratocaster breaking the tone knob off. My banjo stayed put, luckily with no damage. The trailer itself is no longer level and has a bit of a twist to it making the outer doors a bit difficult to open and close. That Ill address that when the weather warms up. It looks like the trailer has moved about an inch or two on its foundation, but, seems to be holding steady there.. Fortunately there no electrical wiring running through the damage walls so thats not going to be a problem. And seeing I DONT have running water. There shouldnt be any leaks from that. I was wanting to fly last night, but, I was running on just one hour of sleep and couldnt hold my eyes open when flying time rolled around. Maybe next week. Any ways, thats that.

Sorry this happened bro. I do not miss the wind storms of western Washington 60+ mph gusts. They have wind storms here to but like 25-30 mph gusts. i can live with that.
It dosnt look to bad from what I can see, some structural damage. I can say I used to see a lot of blue tarps on a lot of single wides in Washington and they did a good job of keeping out the rain. They wont keep out the cold. I would on a dry day use some good duct tape on the end towards the center so moisture dosent seep in. Sorry bud life likes tyo throw us some wrenches occasional y.

Started some repairs today. didnt get as much as I hoped done. Replaced one window, repaired most of one wall. Thats about it. Had to do it by myself so work went slowly. Heres what I was working on.

Heres a shot of the roof damage from inside. You cant really see what is all messed up. But, if you look carefilly, you can see the broken beams.
(https://i.postimg.cc/CLXPxHs0/20200202-141357.jpg)

 It seems my trailor was built with a 2x6 beam that caps the walls. Which help take the hit from the tree nicely. The roof beams were 2x4. It snapped them. One side of the window frame had been pushed down twisting the window from, That was coased by one of the 2x4s in the wall disintegrating due to the load and some water damage that I didnt know was there. But, all fixable. Im going to try to hit the roof tomarrow.

No Lippy, thats drywall. Very cheap and thin drywall but... Im having to replace a sheet or two due to some black mold I found when I opened it up. But, thats normal for a mobile home this age. BUT, Ive got all the structural repairs on the wall completed today. Now for the drywall and as soon as I can get another break in the weather. HOPEFULLY I can start in on the roof.
