Biomed, is that Spitfire SL574 at San Diego?

If so, you might find the thread below of interest:

http://forum.keypublishing.com/showt...st-not-cricket!

Actually, it probably isn't, because SL574 was a low-back, but I've triped this so I'm posting it!

This is a LF Mk IXe SL633 that belongs to the Historic Flight Foundation in Mukilteo, WA. It flew with a Czech RAF squadron (RAF Squadron 312) during WWII. It served with the Czechoslovakian air force until being sent to the IAF in Israel where it was flown against Egyptian Spitfires. After the IAF it served in Burma. It made a wheels up landing and ended up as a static display with a T-6 tail. It was rescued and restored by Historic Flying Limited at Duxford, UK. Like all of the aircraft in the Historic Flight Foundation's collection it is in the air quite often.

Great pictures. Thanks for posting; I followed up to look at https://www.nmm.nl/

The collection is listed here (I don't know if this is up to date or all on display - as of today 20 March 2015 it had not been updated since before 2012).

Here's Betty Jo, a twin Mustang, at the NMUSAF in Dayton, Ohio.



and my personal favorite, a C47D. My father-in-law flew these things in WWII and during the Berlin airlift.

You link to the Wikipedia page of the Militair Luchtvaart Museum (Military Aviation Museum), that museum no longer exists. It now is part of the National Military Museum.

What I find interesting it that they claim it is a Do-24K while other sources say it is a Do-24 T-3.

Yes, just to be clear, that's why I first posted the link to the new National Military Museum. However I could find no listing there of the collections, so I also gave the link (with words of caution ) to the listing on Wikipedia, as I must assume that the whole collection, as it now exists, was transferred to the National Military Museum.

There's another reason for aviation enthusiasts to visit Wichita now—work on preparing the Boeing B-29 Superfortress "Doc" for its return to the air is progressing, and it was rolled out of its restoration hangar for the first time recently. FYI.

Hi,

All part of the service. Here's another one of it.



I seem to be the only Shuttleworth Collection fan here; most RFF's seem to go to Duxford which is very nice but a little static compared to the 'planes in the air.





Hope you like these to give a bit of the flavour of their air shows.

Regards, David

I look at a plane like that, and think about how brave people were to strap in (even though there weren't any seatbelts). Jets these days are incredibly safe and reliable when properly operated. Love these vintage aircraft.

Don't be too hasty with that.
The glide angle of a modern jetliner is approximately the same glide angle as a brick.

My teachers (long long ago) said "With enough thrust, you can fly a barn door. Just be damn sure that you don't loose that thrust."

Exactly, Dave...I've never had to glide a jetliner! (though I've done it in the simulator).

Thanks for the link. That was an enjoyable video and brought back some memories for me. When I was working as a freelancer for a small Florida weekly I got to take a press flight on a B-17 restored by the EAA. Got some great shots looking out the nose in the bombardier's post as we flew over Panama City, FL.

Hi,

Thanks everyone for the kind remarks.

It's a genuine 1910 Deperdussin, by the way and is a wonderful sight in the air. As are all the other veteran 'planes they display and fly. You've seen nothing until you see one of those old wing warpers turning; rather like a supermarket trolley when you try to steer a straight line with it!

As I've said before ;-), there's a lot to be said for the Shuttleworth air shows. We all ought to meet up there one day...

REgards, David

Hi,

Yup, I've flown Cody kites and they are a handful. I made the half scale one in the BBC documentary about the weirder war time experiments, a few years ago. They gave a credit to Paul Cody for making it but so many people recognised it that it didn't much matter. Paul told me he'd tried to persuade them that he didn't make it but to no avail. Trying to control one in anything other than a light wind is frightening at times. Mine was made to break if the wind got up too much, after the first test flight...

Regards, David

It isn't as bad as a brick, as the story of TACA Boeing 737 flight 110 proves.

Yes,I remember seeing a documentary on that landing. I could not believe it. The stuff of aeronautical legend - but it's true !!

Okay, so maybe not "the glide angle of a brick" .... maybe "the glide angle of a barn door".

... max windspeed one can taxi a tiger moth 13 knots, but it would be a brave man doing it ...

... without power though, I'd rather be in one than a 737 ... what's the glide-ratio for the Bowing? 1:15 at a couple of hundred knots, whereas the moth can't keep up with the traffic on the M5 in a headwind, with the engine running, in some other respects the Bowing probably has the edge

... the heater springs to mind

That plane was still climbing when it lost power in the engines. It did make a more or less controlled landing in the Hudson. It couldn't glide to Teterboro airport due to lack of altitude, not of lack of gliding power. This story also proves my point that modern planes aren't bricks.

That barn door might be a correct description btw
