RE: Will G-VROM Be Repaired?

Unless other damage is found, it's almost* a certainty that the aircraft will be repaired and returned to service. And most likely this is going to be a fairly modest repair.


*Only because nothing is ever 100% certain.

Tex Johnston's (In)famous Barrel Roll

The basic concept is pretty simple, you're mainly flying a loop, with a bit of roll input. Doing it well is a different issue. In short as you roll the aircraft, you continue to hold enough up elevator to load the aircraft to one G. In many ways a barrel roll isn't even a proper roll, but that's mos...

RE: High Aspect Ratio Wings: Why Not From The 1960's?

The B-47 had a 9.6:1 aspect ratio back in 1947 or so. The B-36 was around 11:1. Long thin wings are always structurally more difficult. Not only does the span-wise load become more of an issue, they're more susceptible to flutter and odd twisting* in flight. Those can be solved with a stiffer struct...
