USS John C. Stennis (CVN-74) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - 1 views

  •  
    "The mission of Stennis and her embarked Air Wing (CVW-9) is to conduct sustained combat air operations while forward deployed in the global arena. The embarked Air Wing consists of eight to nine squadrons. Attached aircraft are Navy and Marine F/A-18 Hornet, EA-6B Prowler, MH-60R, MH-60S, and E-2C Hawkeye.

    The Air Wing can engage enemy aircraft, submarines, and land targets, or lay mines hundreds of miles from the ship. Stennis's aircraft are used to conduct strikes, support land battles, protect the Battle Group or other friendly shipping, and implement a sea or air blockade. "

BZs Nellis 2010 - F4 - 0 views

  •  
    "The F-4 Phantom II was an awesome jet for its time, and still impresses 50 years after its introduction! Hard to imagine, but the jet first entered service in 1960 with the U.S. Navy. Its claim to fame include being used by both the Blue Angels and Thunderbirds as their demonstration aircraft (albeit for just a few years due to the high costs associated with running it), and the top dog fighter-bomber in the Vietnam war.

Murphy Moose - 1 views

  •  
    "While not as large as the deHavilland Beaver, the Murphy Moose is often compared to the Beaver and for many, the Moose is a viable alternative to the expensive Beaver. It is powered by a nine cylinder Russian M-14P radial engine that is supercharged and produces 360 hp. Models are available with a Lycoming in-line six cylinder engine that produces 260 hp. The Murphy Moose seats six people. "

Pietenpol Air Camper - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - 1 views

  •  
    "The Air Camper was designed to be built of spruce and plywood. One of Pietenpol's goals was to create a plane that was affordable and easy to construct for home builders. Building an Air Camper requires basic woodworking skills and tools. Builders also need to fabricate some metal fittings to attach the wooden parts together. Some welding is required. The plans for the Pietenpol Aircamper were originally published in a four part serial in the "Flying and Glider" Manual of 1932-33"

Van's Aircraft - Building an RV: Standard Kits - 1 views

  •  
    "RV kits include all the parts needed to build a complete airframe. The builder must provide the engine, propeller, instruments, avionics and upholstery. All RV kits have been reviewed by the FAA and have been found eligible for licensing in the Experimental Amateur Built category. This means that the fabrication work we do on the kit parts is less than 50% of the total required to complete the aircraft, and that at least 51% of the work remains for the kit builder."

Basics of Composite Construction - 0 views

  •  
    "you do not need a pristine laboratory to build a composite airplane. Like most aircraft building projects, if you have a 2-car garage you have what is needed. It has been my experience that having your workshop in or near your home solves two problems. First of all, you will be much more likely to spend time on the project after getting home from work versus having to drive 30 minutes to another location. This equates to more hours on the actual project. Secondly, your family is more likely to become involved. This is very important if you are to successfully complete the project."

It's not insane to build a plane! « Clear of Clouds - 1 views

  •  
    "One of the many ways to get yourself into the sky is to build your own aircraft. This might sounds insane at first: when someone says "I'm going to build my own airplane," it might sound a lot like saying "I'm going to build my own nuclear submarine." But the truth is, homebuilts can be as simple or as complicated as the builder wants, and people of all different backgrounds have built their own airplanes."

Burt reveals details about the BiPod - 0 views

  •  
    "Burt Rutan took the lid off his latest project, the BiPod, at a homebuilders chat this morning, and it looks different than images released last week by Scaled Composites, Burt's former company that owns the design. The first images of the BiPod included CAD drawings with four propellers-one on each wing and two on the horizontal stabilizer between the tails of the twin-fuselage, hybrid-electric roadable aircraft."

The 13 Ugliest Airplanes » History Net - 0 views

    "One of aviation's oldest clichés is that if an airplane looks right, it'll fly right. Whether our selection of avia­ting dogs affirms or contradicts that aphorism is debatable. Some of these mutts flew just fine and were oddly configured simply so they could fulfill their mission"
