  • Grumman X29 - 415 words
    Grumman X-29 I have chosen to do my book report on the book "The Grumman X-29", by Steve Pace, for a couple of reasons. Ive seen the X-29 in flight at an air show and was mystified by its wing design. I asked myself how could something like that fly at all? This book shed some light on the mysteries of how the X-29 flies and performs. I am going to tell you a little about the book and the X-29, so sit back relax and enjoy the fruits of my reading labor. The X-29 is a single-engine aircraft 48.1 feet long. Its forward-swept wing has a span of 27.2 feet. Each X-29 was powered by a General Electric F404-GE-400 engine producing 16,000 pounds of thrust. Empty weight was 13,600 pounds, while takeo ...

  • Alaskan Aviation - 1,519 words
    ALASKAN AVIATION ALASKAN AVIATION Have you ever looked real close at the maps of Alaska? The next time you see a map look for the little airplane symbol in every little town and village in Alaska. That symbol indicates an airstrip. That symbol also means that that is were some unfortunate bush pilot crashed and said, "This looks like a good place for an airstrip." In the early days of Alaskan aviation it was not possible to call ahead and determine if a community had a suitable landing strip. The pilot simply flew to the village and looked for a open spot to land. A controlled crash into deep snow usually resulted. Once aviation became routine, the landing strips were refined and smoothed, b ...

  • The Battle At Midway - 2,307 words
    The Battle at Midway Nothing distinguished the dawn of June 2, 1942, from countless other dawns that had fallen over tiny Midway atoll in the North Pacific. Nothing, that is, except the tension, the electric tension of men waiting for an enemy to make his move. On Midway's two main islands, Sand and Eastern, 3,632 United States Navy and Marine Corps personnel, along with a few Army Air Force aircrews, stood at battle stations in and near their fighters, bombers, and seaplanes, waiting for the Japanese attack they had been expecting for weeks. The carrier battle of Midway, one of the decisive naval battles in history, is well documented. But the role played by the Midway garrison, which manne ...

  • What Was The Effect Of The Space Shuttle Challenger - 1,375 words
    ... n cause of the explosion was the O- ring which was vital to the Space Shuttles. When the O-ring failed, it seals in the sub-zero temperatures to which the Shuttles stack was exposed to. (Shuttle Challenger, 50.) Accompanying the temperatures, the hydrogen mixed with that causing the explosion which killed all 7 crew member aboard. Contrary to what people had originally thought, there were no human errors to be found in the transcripts.

  • Wind Power - 2,108 words
    ... d A is the area. The number of blades on a windmill varies. There are many different types of windmills. The following equation helps figure out how fast the a certain-bladed windmill will rotate in relation to windmills with different numbers of blades: Speed of windmill="1" / sq. root of number of blades The aerofoils of a four bladed machine rotate 71% as fast as that of a 2 bladed machine. A six bladed machine rotates at 58% and an 8 bladed machine rotates at 56% as fast as a 2 bladed machine. Electricity and Storage of Energy As mentioned previously, the generators in a wind turbine can convert the mechanical energy produced by the rotation of the shaft into electrical energy, DC. F ...
