GWB's piloting fun.... by David E. Powell
http://www.drudgereport.com/rcmu.htm Excerpt: On the way to his infamous landing on an aircraft carrier, Bush toyed with his Secret Service agent by intentionally shaking the plane from side to side and then nosing downward so sharply they lifted out of their seats. ~~~!

Anyone remember the B-58 in "SST: DEATH FLIGHT?" by David E. Powell
OK, I was browsing the Internet Movie Database, checking out disaster flicks, after seeing "Airport 1975" on American Movie Classics the other day. (It had some great flying and sequences that stood up well.) So I found a movie called "SST: Death Flight" that I think I remember seeing some...

F-106 Speed record questions.... by David E. Powell
OK, now this is really old information, but as a kid I recall reading somewhere that the F-16 set a record for single-engine production fighters, with a top speed of Mach 2.32, and that this was (at the time I heard) still a record for single engine production fighters. Is this true, or did it set...

Kerry and Bush: Model kit makers must be loving this.... by David E. Powell
Just think... they can anticipate: 1 - Making a model kit of the Navy Destroyer Kerry served on for a while. 2 - Making a model kit of Kerry's patrol boat. 3 - Making F-102 Delta Dagger kits in Texas ANG colors, or with Texas ANG decals. 4 - Reissuing the TBM avenger kits marked like George...

The F-102 Delta Dagger (Was GWB as a Nat'l Guard Fighter Pilot threads.) by David E. Powell
OK. I have seen the debate over GWB as an F-102 pilot, so I was wondering about a couple of things. First, was the F-102 taken out of service in the early 1970s? I have to ask because as a kid I remember the Guard around here flying F-106s up to around 1990 or 1991 or so, and they were closely...

AF1 over New Jersey? by David E. Powell
Looked up around 3:15 PM in Southern New Jersey, after hearing noise from a plane going overhead. I saw a four engined plane with a blue bottom and what looked like white trim. Any chance this as Air Force One? Wonder where GWB was today? Either way it was kind of low, like the DC-9s that go down...

747 Cruise Missile/JDAM carrier? by David E. Powell
So.... if the USAF needed quick bombers, of the heavy kind.... Could this work? Wing racks might be doable.... I am not sure about putting in a bomb bay, though doing it ahead and aft of the wing and gear cluster might be doable.

EU Heavy Bomber ideas? by David E. Powell
If the EU is looking for more reach without carriers, how about heavy bombers? Certainly something on the order of B-1B as far as airframe might be a goal, or something less radical. It depends on their budget and requirements, I guess. From bases in Europe they could cover much of Africa, the...

1553 bus on the C-130? by David Harper
Does the C-130 have two 1553 buses onboard? One for flight control and one for EW/mission systems? Thanks in advance, Dave

Why All The German/Nazi Threads? by David Joston
Is this a World War II newsgroup or what? Why can't anyone talk about at least modern military aviation? I, for one, would like to see more discussions on the F-22, F-35, Eurofighter, Rafale, JAS 39 Gripen, Su-47, MiG MFI, or any other new aircraft. My son bought a toy Su-47 today and asked me...

Final Word on Syrian/Iranian A/C by David Joston
Would you all stop bickering about the Syrian Flankers and Iranian Frogfoots! Picking up a copy of the 2002 edition of Jane's aircraft recognition guide it clearly states that Iran DOES operate the Su-25 and Syria DOES NOT operate any Su-27 Flankers. Since Jane's is the world's authority on...

AFM 66-1 Available? Where? by David K. Bryant
Anyone know where to get a copy of the AFM 66-1 manual? Was it replaced with another maintenance program? I've been able to locate the Navy's Aviation Maintenance program (OPNAV 4790.2H) and would like to compare it to the AFM 66-1. Anyone know what the Army uses for Maintenance Data collection?

Jet fighter top speed at military power by David L. Pulver
I am wonderning what the top speed (in mph) a clean F-15C, Mirage 2000, F-16C, and MiG-29 could accelerate to in level flight at optimum altitude (not just sea level) without afterburner. I usually see the top clean speed and the top sea level speed (with afternburner?) quoted, but rarely the top...

9/11 Pentagon Wreckage by David Lednicer

U.S. offers naval reconnaissance planes to India by David Lednicer
India had five Il-38s. Two were lost in a mid-air collision. This leaves three Il-38s and eight Tu-142s to patrol a long coast line. In addition, the Tu-142 are not very well equipped for maritime patrol. Despite what the article says, production switched from the P-3B to P-3C in 1969. Hence,...

What are Boeing's plans? by David Lednicer
Here is an interesting question: the USAF KC-767 deal was supposed to keep the 767 line open, but this deal is dormant. If the USAF doesn't act soon, they won't be able to buy 767s as the line closes real soon. With this in mind; how are they going to buy E-10s (767-400ERs) if the line is closed?

Speaking of moving stupf around by David Lesher
I was awaiting departure from BWI and glanced up from my place on the floor in the SWA queue. What first caught my attention was it was high wing. What REALLY grabbed me away from my book was the 1,2,3,4,5 FIVE bogies on the main gear. It turned and parked, and we taxied by it 30 minues later. It...

AF1 range/route/refueling? by David Lesher
Turkey Dinner Tour Now, http://gc.kls2.com/ says the Great Circle distance KADW-BGW is 6200m, and AF1 has a published range of ~~7300 miles. But Great Circle would have taken them across multiple countries, including those evil fried potato folks; so I'd assume they did not use that...

Retrieving P3's by David Lesher
I have another wacko idea, for which this group has the knowledge to debate. You might recall that a few years ago we had a minor issue with a P3's midair collision and emergency landing at a location not certified as a P3 repair station. To get it back, We ended up chain-sawing off the wings ...
