Your work here is now done!

The Avro Ashton fleet was clearly «built for purpose», the aircraft performing every single test or trial with minimum fuss and excellent reliability. At least one complete Ashton deserved to have been displayed along with the many other research aircraft that grace the RAF Museum at Cosford today.

Five Ashtons were withdrawn from use between 1959 and mid-1962, beginning with the prototype WB490, which was allocated for cabin pressure test duties at Woodford on September 9, 1959. This short-lived secondary duty came to end on December 21, 1959, when the aircraft was sold to the specialist aircraft scrap company R.J.

Hurricane masterclass

EW introductions are needed to the work of Hawker Restorations Ltd based in Suffolk. Just look at the likes of Peter Vacher’s Hurricane I in the UK,Vintage Wings of Canadas Mk.lV,Tom Friedkin’s Sea Hurricane X at Chino,California, USA, and the Alpine Fighter Collections Mk.lla in New Zealand, and you’ll get the idea!

HRL was set up under the expert guidance of Tony Ditheridge in 1993 specifically to rebuild Hurricanes.And it’s a particularly challenging task as Sydney Camm’s fighter is one of World War Two’s most complicated structures to re-create. Hardly surprising then that the most respected warbird operators, such as

Daredevils Delight.

1

To make the fuselage (A), cut three pieces of 3/4-thick stock (we used oak) to 2 1/2 wide by 6 long. Glue and clamp the three pieces face-to-face, with the edges and ends flush.

2

Trim both ends of the fuselage lamination (A) for a 5 1/2 finished length. (We used a miter-gauge extension for support.)

3

See the pattern insert. (You could also transfer the marks to the lamination with carbon paper.)

4

Using a Forstner or spade bit, drill a 1 3/8 hole 1 deep in the top edge of the fuselage for the cockpit. Switch bits,

Tiltrotor (helicopter-plane) Bell V-22 Osprey (part 2)

According to Col. Matthew Malherna manager applets V-22 Command aviasistem Navy U.S. success in Iraq introduction konvertoplanov eclipsed all expectations. Tiltrotor under fire from the ground fell sporadically, no car got battle damage, but March 24, 2009 the entire fleet konvertoplanov flights were discontinued after technicians Squadron VMM-266 on one of the machines was found weakening of bolting in the swash plate right nacelle. Inspection carried out after the pilots were awarded a «sharp» noise and excessive vibration during ordinary flight. Inspection 84 «Osprey», all devices are in operation, has permitted to find such deficiencies another 4 konvertoplanov who

New spy plane

This is the first of the 2-ordered boards, passing at the moment flight tests CAPO. We can say that it truly is an event, as the work on the machine neryadovye go for more than 10 years. Tu-214R aircraft is all-encompassing electronic and optical reconnaissance and not distant radar detection (AWACS) or control, and is not intended to change the A-50. Aircraft radar system has multiple antenna arrays (clearly visible in the photo) on the sides of the fuselage and beneath. This assembly differs from the circuit with a massive rotating antenna on the fuselage, well known to all

CV-22 tiltrotor Osprey USAF

Tiltrotor — this aircraft capable of producing vertical takeoff and landing (as do helicopters) and long horizontal flight speed, suitable for everyday aircraft. Because this type of aircraft are not fully or helicopters or airplanes, it affects their view. As a result, the configuration of these aircraft can take the most sudden appearance. In addition, because the flying apparatus of this type are characterized by Rata with 2 sharply differing modes of flight in their design but have to constantly go on compromises. CONSTRUCTION. VTOL vysokoplan made on a straight-wing, two-keel fins, 2 GTE and 2 tilt-rotor in nacelles

Serial freighter Il-76MF made its first flight

The first production of military transport aircraft Il-76MF 30 September 2010 first took to the air, RIA Novosti reported. Flight of the transporter was held at the airport of Tashkent Aircraft Production Association named after Chkalov. The plane stayed in the air 38 minutes running test pilot Nikolai Kuimova. Development of IL-76MF was conducted from the beginning of the 1990s. The first flight of the prototype aircraft made in August 1995. Transportnik created on the basis of IL-76, developed in the early 1970s and is the most popular heavy military transport aircraft in the world. With the start of

TsAGI confirmed the compliance of the strength of the fuselage SSJ100 additional requirements of EASA

 Photo source:skill.ru

November 3, 2011, Moscow — Tests carried out by TsAGI in late October 2011, confirmed experimentally that the static strength of the fuselage SSJ100 (RRJ-95B) under c aviation rules CS-25, the European Aviation Safety Agency EASA. An additional certification static testing of internal overpressure has been subjected to a pressurized cockpit fuselage prototype aircraft MSN 95002. The fuselage broke hundred percent rated load, which is almost twice operational. The tests confirmed the compliance of the SSJ100 additional requirements of EASA to static strength.

"The results of these tests are necessary for the timely preparation of the
