Flying around as LXJ660

Written on 02/04/2023 by daniel jef

The biggest blimp in the air, but it does not work really - but unfortunately.
Another attempt to fly with airships lighter than air.

Nice shot, John! The P-40 was/is a great aircraft! And for anyone who cares, here is info from Wikipedia regarding N numbers:

An older aircraft (registered before 31 December 1948) may have a second letter in its identifier, identifying the category of aircraft. This additional letter is not actually part of the aircraft identification (e.g. NC12345 is the same registration as N12345). Aircraft category letters have not been included on any registration numbers issued since 1 January 1949, but they still appear on antique aircraft for authenticity purposes. The categories were:

C = airline, commercial and private
G = glider
L = limited
R = restricted (such as cropdusters and racing aircraft)[8]
S = state
X = experimental

ltafan, indeed, it was nice between the balloons, but cold.

Jerome & John: Unfortunately, my English teacher didn't explain the meaning of the word "utter" to me.
So I don't really get what you're saying in your post. Please excuse me!

Serge, when a pilot has a dumb squawk, the mechanics sometimes say, "the Nut Behind the Wheel is Loose"
In this case, there are two pilots, hence Toulouse Nuts behind the wheel. :)

however, the r-2600 was a radial whereas the Allison was an inline allowing the narrow nose so famous with the P-40 and P-51. The P-36 was always a radial, but just under performed. It wasn't until the Rolls Royce Merlan that the two-stage supercharger was used which allowed a ceiling of 40,000 and 400+ mph. The P47 & F6F used the R-2800 radial

Brian,
Nice catch. At least it has one photo now on the site, a 5 vote for one.

Even on overcast days you still get great shots! Well done Gary. 5+

Beatiful! It's sister-ship - N863GT - the last 747 built - just left Everett to begin it's working life. (Which will probably be 40 years or so!)

Beautiful airplane; great picture!

Darn! Still got that hydraulic leak from the nose landing gear!!

This "150" crashed on it's 2nd flight in the world's slowest crash. I think the choice of Lakehurst, NJ. for it's first flight was temping fate. Thank goodness it was not filled with Hydrogen! Never the less it has a similar cruise speed to 150's I flew in the 50's and 60's.

Pelican006 - Awesome, thank you so much for the explanation of how you got to the information you got. Trigonometry! Well, I totally sucked at math. Barely passed High School Algebra and Geometry. All I can say is I am glad we have smart folks like you who have a mind for this kind of math. I never even attepted Trig. Thanks for your service as an Air Traffic Controller! We're you in a tower, or center? I'd imagine over 36 years you probably did it all. Thanks for YOUR service and keeping us safe UP there!

Type designator AS50-- look it up before you post!

Written on 02/03/2023 by Samuel Bixler

A319 is the correct type designator

Written on 02/03/2023 by Samuel Bixler

Please look up the type designator before posting! Should be DH8C

Written on 02/03/2023 by Samuel Bixler

DH8A - please look up the proper code before posting!

Written on 02/03/2023 by Samuel Bixler

Type designator is D8HC (DHC-8-300)

Just for the record this photo is showing an A6-F. Four prototypes were built. The A6-F was to carry over until the new stealth aircraft in development came aboard as a replacement. The A6-F stopped being built and the stealth replacement was canceled. I took care of part problems on this aircraft at Grumman on Long Island.

Hi, Greg, and TY. (Wave)
Rich .... Thanks to you also. And I agree w/your comment about quite a few of Chris's overhead military captures; they do indeed "rock." Unfortunately, the truly fine shots that he certainly should be proud to post are buried amid others that he probably should have simply deleted from the card, so the superb ones don't get the views because some viewers just don't want to wade thru the poor stuff to find a gem. But that's his business. In any event, I appreciate that he gave me the idea to try some overheads. A couple days ago, I caught a KC-10 Extender (call: ABATE21) enroute from SUU to SLC and then up to Montana where the Chinese spy balloon is. I enjoyed getting that capture. And hey, while I'm here, good luck to the Eagles. I'm rooting for them to whomp KC. (Thumbs Up)

Written on 02/03/2023 by Gary Schenauer

I agree with all of the comments. The DC-8 was one of the best looking jets to have flown in or capture on the camera. Another special treat these days, over Iowa, is spotting the 4 line contrails. Its a rare sight to spot as well as that of our USAF C5's flying from Dover to Calif.

Would be interesting to see this trying to land in a 25 Kt. crosswind.
