  1. Another thought is protection from un contained engine failures or respecting the rotor burst zone. I doubt the aircraft was built to FAR25. So many questions...looks darn interesting though!
  2. Great banter! I love old guys talking about old planes. With all respect, the comments here are important in remembering how we all got here and equally important as the equipment itself. I am looking forward to contributing to such a thread in a few more years - until then I will enjoy your contributions. Well done.
  3. It's like a massive tuning fork....I wonder how they dealt with resonance between the two fuselages...if there is any.
  4. Interesting technique on the power levers....one at a time?
  5. Google Alerts and Wikipedia as your research department and The Cloud as your wind tunnel; I am sure there is more substance to this program than current pop culture buzz words
  6. Thanks a bunch.
  7. How would this petition fit into the Gazette I comment procedure? Would it be viewed separately, in combination or ignored due to the Gazette I process?
  8. Similar to going to the moon the cost vs benefits of supersonic Transport and sending a man back to the moon just don't make sense in today's economic climate. I am sure glad it made sense back in the 60's. What a decade for air/space.
  9. 2.8g limits seems a bit light for what the aircraft is intended for.
  10. ...or Louis Farrakhan...
  11. L Ron Hubbard said if you want to get rich, invent a religion.
  12. A lot of 'lasts' for the Queen of the skies in the next few years. Not too much longer and the last '47 passenger flight will happen.
  13. ...don't miss the smoking section though
  14. I think they wanted to say 120/140. The 120 was fabric and tail wheel.
  15. Sure is cute though.....the aircraft. It's like a cross between a baby F16 and an F18. Can't wait to see some head to head comparisons with Textron's contender.
