    Beethoven 9th symphonie 200 anniversary.

    One of the most elegantly simple concert halls in the world is not a hall, but the Music Shed at Tanglewood, surrounded by the peaceful Berkshire mountains. It was the first, now there are many. At Tanglewood the last concert is always the Beethoven 9th, and the acoustics of the shed are so...

    Bud Anderson passes

    I was stationed at Edwards Sep 88-Aiug 89 and met Bud Anderson, who was a close friend of Chuck Yeager. Julie and I and 3 other people had a private dinner with Yeager, who was as fascinating as you would expect. I think i read that on the 50th anniversary of supersonic flight, he flew in an...

    Who Likes Aircraft ?

    PS the cockpit module was the solution to very high speed ejection: an open seat is lethal above about 500-550. The B-58, the original B-1, and the Vark had capsules. Pilots today face the 600 knot breeze with neck stabilization and arm and leg restraints. I personally evaluated, and flew with...

    Who Likes Aircraft ?

    Don't all ye who post these want to guess as to their location, type, etc??!! The RAAF Mig Killer flew a Meteor made by Gloucster. Howver this was a one-off; the Meteor was no match for the agile Mig, and they were withdrawn from air combat and used air-ground only. I think the USAF F-86s are...

    Edelbrock AVS2 Linkage Question

    My factory to Eddie is a 1/4" 24 tpi. I got a bolt from the hardware store, sawed off the top and used it to extend the linkage. Works perfectly. Good luck.

    For all of You Train Lovers

    Elegant, purpose-built pax cars. For a tourist train, not overly pricey. Too bad about the style-free freight switchers up front. The Canadian LRC locos were very pleasing to see.

    i saw the Mriya (dream in Ukrainian) at The Farnborough Air Show. Aluminum overcast, darkened the skies over my house on final. Most amazingly, it turned around, on the grass!

    i have about 300h in a Hunter T7, the side by side trainer. Lovely old lady. I evaluated the F-16XL vs the Strike Eagle. F-15 won, based on load and range.

    Richard Petty's "Special" Textured Roof - 1968 Daytona 500

    I had not heard the aerodynamic "golf ball" theory before. If true, why are ALL planes flush-riveted? The golf ball dimples induce turbulence, which causes the boundary laher to remain attached farther back, reducing friction drag. The tiny curved projections, 'vortex generators", on the top...

    911 by Jeff Fellmeth -- Retired American Airlines Pilot

    I too was flying on the am of 9/11, a Commanche 250 heading for a small airport just outside the beltway in MD. The first clue that something was amiss was Baltimore Approach telling an out-of -fuel 727 to land either at Baltimore, or...Andrews AF Base...Then he turned us over to DC approach...

    Re White Blue Sport Fury trim paint code?

    Any info out there on proper code paint for the RWB front and rear emblems on my 63 SF ? Curiously, the original, 60y old front, round emblem paint is intact, but the rear, horizontal has badly worn colors! I can go to a hobby shop and match, but, I'd rather go original, if info is available...

    Some GOOD news about the EPA.

    on the same topic, today's WSJ article relates that EPA has concluded that making fuel mileage standards more stringent would ...cost the taxpayer, and result in: 0.000% CO2 (= no measurable) reduction. The WSJ compliments their unusual honesty. You can't make this stuff up. Short smog story...
