USS John F. Kennedy to be retired in 2005 by [email protected]
I am afraid reducing the number of aircraft carriers might quickly result in decreasing the number of active Carrier Air Wings also. JFK, anyhow, has already escaped the axe before, when it became a "training and reserve carrier"... That may give us a glimpse how the Navy may look like in ten...

Check out http://www.dappa.nl/crash.htm This video is about a (then) highly classified project to land a C-130 at a soccer field, and get it back airborne from the same field with even more load than during landing. The landing test caused the Herc to virtually hover over the site, and the video...

Single-seat torpedo planes post-WW2 by KDR
Just wondering how come post-WW2 carrierborne torpedo planes such as Firebrand, AM Mauler, Wyvern were all single-seaters. Only a few years ago during the WW2, carrierborne torpedo planes required three crews - pilot, bomber/navigator & radioman/gunner - without exception. What brought this change?

I was told a story once by someone who worked at Grumman concerning the F-14. It seems that one day a crew took up an F-14 and shortly after take off found that the pitch controls (elevons?) were stuck causing the aircraft to pitch up uncontrollably. By increasing power the crew was able to keep...

NAVAIRSYSCOM Aircraft Manuals by Pryor Taylor
I am trying to locate NAVAIRSYSCOM technical manuals for decommissioned naval aircraft. It is my understanding that the documents were moved to the west coast, possibly California. Does anyone know where this material is archived?
