@AC re Nokia
misread it I suggest old chap.
Nokia were trying to harvest the "electro-magnetic fog" around us.
Finally a productive use for all those radars...
Prey on you
Prey for you ?
You mean prey on you, or was that meant to be Oracle ?
Really, Dear Reg, surely not another typo for the likes of we web minions to pinion, I mean opine ?
actually ol' son, in one of the northern Antipodean burgs of Oz, this was the Next Big Thing.
Right up until the floods started a few months ago.
why not DSL and save another fork
One more small footprint distro to ignore.
Already plenty exist. With a linux having a dynamic linking kernel, why do special branches on something largely commodity, like Intel chips.
tail scrapes were common on passenger flights in earlier times.
When exiting B727 via rear ramp one could look up and see scrapes.
I have been on DC9s with a horrible scraping sound aft on a steep take off.
As for other aviation, a mild tail scrape is not good practice, but happens.
A lack of rudder authority does bother me though.
A mere 15 knot cross wind is no threat or most well flown aircraft.
Not unheard off either.
Early Super Sabres needed extra vertical surface for starters.
Black Helo because they can scrape bellies too. Paris might do to
another supersonic shockwave rider, how 1960s.
XB70 did it. Now thats what I call variable geometry
drilled nuts and lockwire out of favour since WWII??
Not on a lot of aircraft I fly.
Simple, light, cheap, effective and easy to check in preflight.
Also much easier to deal with when the bolts need to come out than locktite.
Lockwire dates back decades, but so do many effective safety methods.
Bring on the Simplex pusher contra-rotating chopper anyway.
Also simpler mechanically, same speed, same landing as V22.
