The bombs in Spain go off mainly on the train by Denyav
How luckily for Bush and Asnar that this newest atrocity will, almost certainly, propel the Spaniards to close the ranks around the government. The timing is especially apt; a week more for voters to think over the news, and they might get the idea that Asnar pins the bomings on ETA...

Looking at pictures of the B-17F Memphis Belle I see four guns, each in a separate loophole in the nose of the plane. Looking...

B-17s at Low Level by WalterM140
Hi, I am building a diorama with a 1/48th scale B-17 at low altitude. It will have two engines turning and two shut down. My question is, would a B-17 have its landing flaps deployed at all at this lower speed and altitude if it was not landing, just hedge-hopping home? And if so, how...

Hi, guys. An acquaintance has asked me to help decode a bit of Navy pilot jargon his daughter heard at a Poli Sci lecture. The prof is a former Tomcat pilot, and was apparently regaling the class with Tomcat tales. He used the acronym "SBFAFP" (spelled out, not spoken as a word as Navy types are...

High-altitude autorotations? by Bill McClain
Not terribly military, I know, but...the local TV channel's news helicopter (a Bell Jet Ranger) and its pilot appeared in a commercial in which the stated ceiling was 22,000 feet. I remarked to my aircraftwise 8-year-old, "Twenty-two thousand feet? I wouldn't do that!" When Joshua asked why, I...
