U.S. ARMY AVIATION: GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER || WARTHOG 2018
Warthog Defense


Published on Mar 30, 2018
To my fellow U.S. Army pilots, what I am about to tell you is not going to be easy for you to read, but if you want to be successful in any post-Army flying position, I suggest you do. If not, stop right here before I insult You, Mother Rucker, and Army Aviation in general.

Flight instructor sinks to his knees and kisses the tarmac after being forced to crash land his plane because of landing gear problems

  • Pilot kissed the runway at North Perry Airport in Pembroke Pines, Florida, after surviving a crash landing
  • The flight instructor was giving a lesson to a student when the landing gear failed to lock into place
  • Spent nearly an hour circling the airport and burning off fuel to stop the plane exploding in a crash landing
  • When they finally touched down, the front wheel collapsed and the plane landed on its nose
  • Luckily, the plane did not burst into flames and the instructor and student got away without being injured
  • The flight school would not name the instructor or student, but DailyMail.com learned that the instructor is Francis 'Frank' Goeddeke

An additional note from Jim about TFRs:

One important fact to make known on TFR’s is NEVER TAKE A REPETITIVE TFR for granted.
In other words just because the POTUS TFR is the same every two weeks when he arrives in Palm Beach for the weekend, one had better read the details just in case something changes. AOPA does a great job of mapping a TFR to their members location and sends out emails with a description of the TFR. I’m not sure what the distance is before an email is sent however I receive a message from AOPA for all the POTUS and VIP TFR’s in Florida.

The main reason we went IFR instead of VFR:
ICAO VFR flight plans must include in the transmitted line 18 "other information" section: DVFR/estimated United States ADIZ penetration at time (UTC) and estimated point of penetration (latitude/longitude or fix-radial-distance).

More info about Air Defence Identification Zone (ADIZ):

AH-1 Cobra Attack Helicopter Series - American Classic Gunship
Matsimus


Published on Mar 26, 2018
The Bell AH-1 Cobra is a two-blade, single-engine attack helicopter manufactured by Bell Helicopter. It was developed using the engine, transmission and rotor system of the Bell UH-1 Iroquois. A member of the prolific Huey family, the AH-1 is also referred to as the HueyCobra or Snake.

The AH-1 was the backbone of the United States Army's attack helicopter fleet, but has been replaced by the AH-64 Apache in Army service. Upgraded versions continue to fly with the militaries of several other nations. The AH-1 twin-engine versions remain in service with United States Marine Corps (USMC) as the service's primary attack helicopter. Surplus AH-1 helicopters have been converted for fighting forest fires.

Hope you enjoy!!

How much to fly a Cirrus?
Stefan Drury


Published on Apr 3, 2018
One for the pilots: what is more economical - a faster but more expensive SR22 or a slower but cheaper to run SR20? This question requires a spreadsheet and some maths (yawn). Seriously, if you're not a pilot and don't care about rental cost calculations, you can skip this video. I won't be offended.

✈️Cirrus Rental ✈️
Rental prices are based on Blue Demon Aviation in Moorabbin. Awesome place, great selection of aircraft, and they do maintenance too. Check out their Cirrus fleet here: http://www.bluedemon.com.au/home/hire...

The B-52 Stratofortress - Americas Heavy Bomber
Matsimus


Published on Apr 4, 2018
The B-52H is the US Air Force’s long-range, large-payload multirole bomber and is known as the Stratofortress or the Buff (big ugly fat fellow). It is the USAF’s principal strategic nuclear and conventional weapons platform, and supports the US Navy in anti-surface and submarine warfare missions.

The B-52H is a very large aircraft, with a length of 159ft 4in (48.5m) and a take-off weight of 488,000lb (220,000kg). The all-metal skin bears a high proportion of the flight loading. When on the ground, the surface of the aircraft on the forward section of the fuselage has a wrinkled appearance. The skin expands and becomes smooth as the crew compartment is pressurised when the aircraft gains altitude.

The B-52 celebrated its 50th anniversary (first flight April 1952) in April 2002 and is the longest serving combat aircraft in the world – a total of 744 were built.

Hope you enjoy!!

Airborne 04.06.18: TBird Pilot Lost, Supersonic VSS Unity, Great Lakes A/L
Aero-News Network


Published on Apr 6, 2018
Also: PC-24 Delivered, Robinson Helicopter AD, Mercy Flight Southeast, USAF To Acquire 22 AC-208

There are few details about the actual accident, but the Air Force has confirmed that one of the pilots of the Thunderbirds demonstration team was fatally injured Thursday in a training accident. More recent info disclosed that Thunderbird #4, Maj. Stephen Del Bagno, an accomplished pilot with more than 3,500 hours of flight time was lost. SpaceShipTwo VSS Unity safely and successfully completed her first supersonic, rocket-powered flight Thursday. VSS Unity took off at 8:02 am local time with Mark “Forger” Stucky and Dave Mackay in the cockpit, attached to the WhiteKnightTwo carrier aircraft, VMS Eve, piloted today by Mike Masucci and Nicola Pecile. The mated vehicles climbed to a launch altitude of around 46,500 ft and executed a clean release of Unity. After a few seconds, Unity’s rocket motor was brought to life and the pilots aimed the spaceship into an 80 degree climb, accelerating to Mach 1.87 during the 30 seconds of rocket burn. The hybrid rocket powered Unity through the transonic range and into supersonic flight for the first time. Great Lakes Airlines has indefinitely suspended its scheduled passenger flight service. The airline ceased operations on March 26 with no warning to ticket holders. The airline was a regional carrier flying routes out of Cheyenne, WY using Beechcraft and Embraer turboprop airplanes. The company said it was closing after 40 years of servicing regional airports in the Midwestern and Western regions of the United States. The carrier said that the pilot qualification rule passed in 2013 by Congress led it to cut flying hours and routes as it became more difficult to hire and retain qualified pilots. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!

Airborne 04.06.18 is chock full of info in this Daily News Episode, Friday, April 6th, 2018...

USNS Corpus Christi Bay (T-ARVH-1) - The Army Aviation Floating Workshop
sobchakvideos


Published on Jun 12, 2014
On 7 August 1964, MARAD transferred the ship -- earmarked for conversion to a floating aeronautical maintenance facility for helicopters -- back to the Navy. On 27 March 1965, the ship was reinstated on the Navy Vessel Register and received the new name and classification USNS Corpus Christi Bay (T-ARVH-1), named for Corpus Christi Bay in the southern Texas Coastal Bend; the ship was transferred to the Military Sealift Command (MSC) on 11 January 1966. Converted at the Charleston Naval Shipyard to an Aircraft Repair Ship, Helicopter, Corpus Christi Bay emerged from the yard only faintly resembling her former self. Gone was the prominent seaplane ramp, aft, replaced by a built-up superstructure topped by a helicopter landing pad measuring 50 ft (15 m) by 150 ft (46 m). Previously, damaged helicopters had to be transported back to the U.S. for refit; with the advent of this "new" ship type, repairs could be accomplished near the forward areas, damaged "helos" barged out to the ship and lifted on board by two 20 short tons (18 t) capacity cranes.

Accepted by MSC in January 1966, Corpus Christi Bay's first commander was Captain Harry Anderson, who had a crew of 129 men, a fraction of the ship's original complement, under him. Accompanying the ship on her first deployment in support of forces in Vietnam was the Army's 1st Transportation Corps Battalion (Seaborne), 308 aircraft technicians and specialists under the command of Lieutenant Colonel Harry O. Davis, USA. The ship operated out of Cam Ranh Bay, South Vietnam, during 1966. During the Vietnam War Corpus Christi Bay participated in several campaigns from 1966--1969. Ultimately determined by MSC to be "in excess of current and future requirements". Corpus Christi Bay was taken out of service in 1973 and berthed in ready reserve status at Corpus Christi, Texas.

Corpus Christi Bay was struck from the Naval Vessel Register on 31 December 1974. On 17 July 1975, the ship was sold to Brownsville (Texas) Steel and Salvage, Inc. for scrapping.

C-17 Snow Runway Operations In Antarctica (2016)
AIRBOYD



Published on Apr 28, 2018
Click to subscribe! http://bit.ly/subAIRBOYD

PHOENIX AIRFIELD, Antarctica (Nov. 15, 2016) -- A McChord Air Force Base C-17 Globemaster III crew and the Army Corps of Engineers teamed up to make the first landing and takeoff of a wheeled and fully-loaded cargo aircraft on a compacted-snow runway an otherwise routine event.

A collaboration between the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center's Cold Regions Lab and the National Science Foundation's Office of Polar Programs, the surface design required the development of unique certification standards and was engineered to provide a reliable wheeled-runway solution to replace Antarctica's Pegasus Ice runway.

“This novel runway design and construction took more than 16 continuous months to complete,” said Terry Melendy, a CRREL research civil engineer. “The runway was designed using a compaction technique to modify the deep snow using heavy rollers weighing up to 160,000 pounds, to change the snow’s strength properties from its natural state creating a denser, higher strength snow foundation (32 inches deep) that can withstand the impact of a C-17 landing. And, in this particular case, the Phoenix was designed to withstand approximately 60 wheeled flights a year.”

Throughout design and construction, the team maintained close liaison with NSF and Air Mobility Command standards and evaluation personnel and with the Air Force’s Antarctic C-17 flight group.

“The runway was certified in the field for heavy, wheeled aircraft by the Air Mobility Command,” said Melendy. “With the successful completion of the Phoenix runway, we have done something that no one else has done.”

THE NAVY'S SECRET WISH: BRING BACK THE OLD F-14 TOMCAT FROM THE DEAD? || WARTHOG 2018
Warthog Defense


Published on Apr 27, 2018
As Work described it, the Navy was relatively confident it could sink the Oscars and surface ships before they could launch their missiles. They were far less confident about their ability to take out the Tu-22Ms before they could get into launch position. The Tomcats, under Outer Air Battle, would try to “kill the archers”—the Backfires—before they could shoot and attempt to eliminate any cruise missiles that they launched. But, Work notes, no one knows how well it would have worked during a shooting war with the Soviet Union—and it’s a good thing we never got to find out. But with China’s emerging anti-access/area denial strategy, the threat is back.

Big C-17 Transport Plane Lands In Antarctica

Published on Apr 28, 2018
A fully loaded U.S. Air Force C-17 Globemaster III aircraft from McChord Air Force Base, WA lands, drops off cargo, and then takes-off at Phoenix Airfield in Antarctica. The Army Corps of Engineers built the compacted-snow runway after 16 continuous months of construction.

The Hawker Harrier was one of Britain's greatest innovations - a jump jet attack aircraft that could land without a runway and hover like a helicopter. In 1969, it completed a trans-Atlantic flight that made world headlines. Now that same aircraft is being restored, and the hunt is on for a museum in which to house it.

Last month, France and Germany announced plans to develop a “future combat air system” (FCAS), built by Airbus and France’s Dassault. What FCAS means isn’t exactly clear, a point made by Airbus boss Tom Enders. “We’re not talking about ‘a’ military aircraft,” he said. “We’re talking about a system of military-combat airborne elements.” Enders wasn’t certain if it would have a pilot.

Dealing with negativity is tough. Hopefully this video helps motivate you to challenge yourself and take on something you've previously been told you couldn't do. Stop listening to other people telling you what you can't do, and start doing the things you've always wanted to!
