Plug and Play

Composite wings and more-electric systems offer greater integration opportunities

As the first engine maker to attach a fifth-generation civil turbofan to a more-electric aircraft’s all-composite primary structure wing, Rolls-Royce says its Trent 1000 experience on the Boeing 787 gives it a significant advantage in the race for ever greater levels of engine-airframe integration.

The company aims to build on this knowledge base as it prepares to install the first Trent XWB engines on to the Airbus A350 later this year. It is already planning a range of longer-term developments that will see it work more holistically with airframe makers.

Play like… Les Paul

Far more than just a name on a guitar and a recording pioneer, Les Paul was a skilled player who knew how to please an audience. Douglas Noble examines his style.

It’s no exaggeration to say that Les Paul was a giant in the fields of electric guitar development and multi-track recording – but he was also a virtuoso guitarist with a distinct sound and a daring style, and, uniquely, he used his work in guitar construction and recording techniques to showcase his playing.

Les Paul’s first guitar was an acoustic with a movable bridge. ‘I discovered that moving the

Plaque to Watson unveiled at Turnberry.

It was on July 9, 1977 that Tom Watson struck his most famous 7-iron shot, a laser from 178 yards on the 18th fairway of the Ailsa course at Turnberry. The then-27-year-old saw his ball finish two feet from the cup — and all but clinched the second of his five Open victories.

Jack Nicklaus, Watson’s playing partner and nearest challenger, wasn’t quite finished. Minutes after slashing his own approach from the edge of gorse bushes right of the fairway to the edge of the putting surface, the Golden Bear holed from about 30 feet for an unlikely birdie.

Suddenly,

Planning a location suoot

Craig Roberts explains the do’s and don’ts of planning your own successful location shoot

The key to a successful shoot is the planning. The event, especially where landscapes are concerned, is not all about taking the picture, but rather the work that goes into arriving at the location at the correct time, in the right conditions, fully prepared. Some planning and a little homework — days, weeks or even months in advance — go a long way in helping to prepare for a successful shoot.

Getting to know the location as much as possible before you even arrive not only

US CONGRESS was notified on July 21 by the US Defense Security Co-operation Agency of a possible Foreign Military Sale of two UH-601. Black Hawk helicopters to the Royal Thai Navy (RTN). If all options are exercised, the total value of the contract will be $46 million.

The deal would also include spare and repair parts, support equipment, personnel training and training equipment, contractor engineering and technical support services.

Double Four bass combo

Setting a new mark in the ‘more decibels per kilogram’ arms race, this tiny 70W combo packs some staggeringly grown-up tone. Review by Gareth Morgan

The modern trend for downsizing and weight reduction in bass amps is something that should be applauded by bass players of all generations and all stylistic leanings – and Phil Jones Bass, alongside the likes of markbass, Genz Benz and euphonic audio, has been at the forefront of such developments with its Briefcase and Bass Cub models. PJB’s Double Four combo is the latest addition to this excellent line.

Pioneers & Icons.

The efforts of aviation’s visionary designers have continually redefined the airplane, with some of their efforts going on to become icons that are recognized worldwide.

The Spirit Up Close.

In an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, the Spirit of St. Louis was lowered to the floor of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum for cleaning and repair, and Dan Patterson was there with his camera to record history up close.

As Lindy Left It.

The airplane has not been restored and everything is as Charles Lindbergh left it, complete with pencil marks on the panel recording his fuel use.
