Airplane Crash Landing Definitely Needed More Foam

From Gizmodo: This morning, the crew of this Fokker had 90 minutes of fuel to troubleshot an unsafe gear alert reported by its onboard computer. Unfortunately, they couldn't fix it on time. That's the kind of troubleshooting that will result in my brain getting a kernel panic.

Thunderbird SC engine swap into BD-4 airplane
2009-05-16 14:25:00
We've been covering engine swaps because we admire the ingenuity and creativity of the builders, and because we want to save information about the swaps for posterity. Some swaps are straightforward (such as a DOHC B18 engine into an early Civic - a combination not offered in the US), some are more complex (a V-8 Ford powered Miata is probably the best example - and we've covered several on this site) and some are so ridiculous (V-12 swap into a Miata) that they just have to be done.  In almost every case the technical expertise of the builder will be tested, although the quality of the end result varies widely.  Here's an example of a complex swap. Not at all straightforward - considerable engineering and fabrication had to be performed to adapt an automotive engine for the unique requirements necessary for airplane use. Airplane? You read that right: it's a home-built airplane with a 1990 Thunderbird Super Coupe (SC) engine. That engine is F...
Best Standard Airplane Engines?

Of engines I have worked with or around it was either GE, or Lycoming and Pratt and Whitney. The Cyclone were the reliable, or powerful engines of old. R 2800s and R 1830s helped the world defeat facsism and fly. The PT6 is a hell of an engine for powering turbo props. Can the engines made and

The World?s Smallest Aircraft
2008-11-21 16:23:00
The world’s smallest piloted aircraft was the Bumblebee II. The creator named the aircraft “bumblebee” because it is said that actual bumblebees do not have sufficient wing area to fly. At first, some engineers and pilots said the same about this tiny airplane. (http://www.aviationtrivia.info-/Starr-Bumble-Bee-II.php)
"Fly Me." Airplane Seizures In China And Why This Is Important:
2008-11-06 11:47:00
Bear with me here non-lawyers as I promise there will be some manna for you at the end. Just read a very good article in International Law Office by Harvey Lau of Baker & McKenzie (and no, my firm is not and has never been in merger talks with Baker & McKenzie, though we are honored by the rumors), on airplane seizures/arrests in China. The article is entitled, "Ratification of Cape Town Convention to Boost Finance" [free subscription required] and it talks about how "the National People’s Congress just ratified the Convention on International Interests in Mobile Equipment and the Protocol to the Convention on International Interests in Mobile Equipment on Matters Specific to Aircraft Equipment, known as the Cape Town Convention, which China signed in November 2001." This convention is expected to become law in China in early 2009. So why am I telling you all this? Again, bear with me here. The article describes how this ratification will better protect airplane lenders an...
Shopping For an Airplane GPS
2008-10-01 14:31:00
An airplane GPS is something that most pilots consider necessary. While most of the commercial planes sold today have their own global positioning systems, this is not always the case with the smaller private planes. If you fly in these small, private planes chances are you will need to buy your own system. These systems ...
CHAD VANGAALEN'S AIRPLANE IS SOFT BUT NOT LIMP
2008-09-28 15:34:00
Somebody give Sub Pop records a cookie. They?ve discovered one of the most fascinating, promising artists I?ve ever heard.Chad VanGaalen's, ?Soft Airplane,? is nothing short of genius. The lyrics alone are worth the price of admission. Check out the single, the folky ?Willow Tree,? on which he muses: ?When I'm dead/ Is when I'll be free." Or the haunting ?Molten Light,? a warning (?She?ll find you and she?ll kill you?) of a girl who apparently was killed and dumped in the river, where she ?floated to the surface? but ?did not ignite.? Returning as a demon, she seeks revenge. The perfect Halloween song. Vocally, he sounds a little like Modest Mouse about to cry?his high, wispy voice has a wavery trill that makes it sound other-wordly.Overall, VanGaalen deserves comparison to Neil Young and Warren Zevon, both of whom successfully forayed into pop (?This Note?s For You?/?Werewolves of London?), folk-country-rock (?Helpless?/?Desperados Under the Eaves?), classic rock (?Rust N...
Chad VanGaalen - Soft Airplane
2008-09-14 17:28:00
Chad VanGaalen hasn?t left his bedroom on his latest album, Soft Airplane, but it sounds like he might have moved out of the basement. Make no mistake, Soft Airplane is still thoroughly a Chad VanGaalen album ? his usual lo-fi esthetic is in full force, his signature falsetto still hauntingly wavers and he?s still obsessed ...
Airplane Noise
2008-09-07 07:16:00
I could listen to “Get You Back” from airplane noise (2008 Back To Work) again. Maybe even another time after that. It’s not hard to listen to. That might actually turn a few folks away. It is rather “pop-like.” The musicianship is not really a question, though, for my money, I’d buy something with a ...

If you're short of cash and don't mind running in tropical humidity and smog for a few bucks, read on. An Indonesian businessman plans to throw 100 million rupiah (S$14,485) out of an airplane over the capital this Sunday as a publicity stunt to promote his new book. 'I want to create a rain of money in Jakarta,' author and motivational speaker Tung Desem Waringin said. 'It's a little bit crazy, but it's marketing.' Police spokesman Colonel I Ketut Untung said authorities may not allow the plan to go forward because it could draw huge crowds and cause chaos. Tens of millions of Indonesians live on less than US$1 a day and food and aid giveaways always draw large numbers. Indonesia News Blog: http://indosnesos.blogspot.com-

Jefferson Airplane

Para aquellos que no conozcan a esta banda, Jefferson Airplane fue uno de los grupos lideres del movimiento psychedelic de los 60. Nacieron en San Francisco California y eran lidereados por Marty Balin a la voz, acompaado de Grace Slick, Jorma Kaukonen a la guitarra principal, Paul Kantner a la ritmica, Jack Casady al bajo y Spencer Dryden en la bateria.A grandes rasgos, tienen toques de Blues, Folk, Psychedelic y mucho Rock; la voz de Grace Slick es hermosa - igual que ella - y sin duda es una de las mejores que ha tenido la historia del rock, en fin, que les puedo decir, Jefferson Airplane es uno de los grupos mas fuertes del rock clasico. Si te gustan The Doors, Led Zeppelin, Janis Joplin, Grateful Dead, The Beatles o The Byrds por mencionar a algunos, esta banda es basica.Aqui su discografia principal:Jefferson Airplane Takes Off (1966)Su disco debut con Signe Anderson como vocalista.
