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.

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 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.

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

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.
