The prominent fairings on each side of the jet pipe on the Convair F-102A Delta Dagger came as a result of the YF-102 prototypes being barely supersonic. ⁣ ⁣ At the time, NASA aerodynamicist Richard Whitcomb had developed the idea of area ruling to minimize transonic drag. Since the fuselage couldn’t be “pinched” to the degree needed without a drastic redesign, the fairings in effect created the “pinched waist” needed for area ruling. In addition to a more powerful version of the J57 engine, the production F-102As were much better performers. ⁣ ⁣ For it’s day, the F-102A pushed the state of the art and many of the problems that dogged the early Delta Daggers were finally resolved, but the aircraft’s early reputation as troublesome stuck. ⁣ ⁣ While most F-102s served stateside with the Air Defense Command, some were stationed in Europe and Okinawa. ⁣ ⁣ In 1962, F-102s were moved to South Vietnam to protect against potential (but never occurred) North Vietnamese air attack. From 1062-1972, the F-102s were actually one of the safest aircraft with only 8 lost to operational accidents. One was downed by a MiG-21, two were lost to ground fire, and four were lost to ground attacks by Viet Cong sappers. ⁣ ⁣ Under Project Stovepipe, F-102s used their IR sensors to look for enemy campfires at night over the Ho Chi Minh Trail, sometimes even firing a heat-seeking Falcon AAM at the target. F-102s also flew daytime attacks, firing unguided rockets from the weapons bay. 618 ground attack missions were flown by the F-102As. ⁣ ⁣ Though wholly unsuited for ground attack, the F-102s had the fastest response time when emergent close air support was needed- all of South Vietnam was within 3 minutes’ flying time of Delta Daggers based at Tan Son Nhut AB at Saigon.⁣ ⁣ November Aviation Photo Challenge | @kjdphoto1971 | #1119planes | “Delta Wing” | Day 17⠀⁣ ⁣ #avgeek #aviation #aircraft #planeporn #PimaAirandSpaceMuseum #Pima #Tucson #DavisMonthan #Arizona #airport #planespotting #instaplane #instagramaviation #Convair #F102 #DeltaDagger #USAF #mil_aviation_originals #instaaviation #aviationlovers #aviationphotography #flight #AvgeekSchoolofKnowledge #AvGeekNation

Contrails (short for "condensation trails") or vapour trails are line-shaped clouds produced by aircraft engine exhaust or changes in air pressure, typically at aircraft cruise altitudes several miles above the Earth's surface. Contrails are composed primarily of water, in the form of ice crystals. The combination of water vapor in aircraft engine exhaust and the low ambient temperatures that exist at high altitudes allows the formation of the trails. Impurities in the engine exhaust from the fuel, including sulfur compounds (0.05% by weight in jet fuel) provide some of the particles that can serve as sites for water droplet growth in the exhaust and, if water droplets form, they might freeze to form ice particles that compose a contrail. Their formation can also be triggered by changes in air pressure in wingtip vortices or in the air over the entire wing surface. Depending on the temperature and humidity at the altitude the contrails form, they may be visible for only a few seconds or minutes, or may persist for hours and spread to be several miles wide. #AviationDreams

💥This 747 has quite a story behind it. Read on! 💥⁣ ⁣ I’m December of 2014, this aircraft, a Virgin Atlantic B747 was operating Flight VS43 from London Gatwick to Las Vegas, when shortly after takeoff, a malfunction was detected with the landing gear. It appeared that one side of the main undercarriage failed to extend (later found to be caused by a part of the landing gear attached the wrong way round by a mechanic). As a result, the aircraft circled around the Bristol channel to burn fuel, followed by a low pass over Gatwick Airport for ground teams to inspect the gear. 🚨⁣ ⁣ The aircraft later made a safe landing despite not having a fully extended gear. Videos show the aircraft landing where it is seen tilting to the side where the landing gear didn’t extend. 🚔⁣ ⁣ Despite this, the aircraft still safely flies today, as seen above departing Gatwick to the east. 🇬🇧⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ✅ For more pictures like this, follow my page @buxton.aviation 👈⁣ ⁣ 📸 Canon EOS 2000D with Tamron 70-300mm⁣ ⁣ 📍Myrtle Avenue, London Heathrow Airport⁣ ⁣ Tags:⁣ #aviation #avgeek #planes #planespotting #airliner #planeporn #aviationdaily #aircraft #instagramaviation #megaplane #airport #plane #instaaviation #boeinglovers #megaaviation #proaviation#boeing747lovers #747lovers #boeing #boeing747 #747 #gatwick #gatwickairport #lgw #egkk #londongatwick #virgin #livefromvirgin #virginatlantic #airplanelovers @virginatlantic @planespotting.be @boeing @gatwickairport @boeinglovers

Этот фильм не оставит никого безразличным. Он вызывает бурю эмоций: Страх, отвращение, уважение, восхищение... Это реальная история об авиакатастрофе✈️ ⠀ Фильм «Живые» 1993г рассказывает о крушении уругвайского самолёта в Андах в 1972г. Фильм снят по книге Пирса Пола Рида. Каждый раз после просмотра, я думаю а как бы я себя повела на их месте. ⠀ Я не буду рассказывать подробностей о сюжете, но фильм достоин вашего внимания. Я его смотрела несколько раз,ещё до работы в авиации. Для осеннего домашнего вечера он идеально подходит. Сразу скажу, он не для слабонервных. Но если вы любите все, что связано с авиацией, любите настоящие жизненные истории, то вам обязательно понравится🔥 Другие мои любимые подборки можно найти тут 👉 #svetikfetka_кино , #svetikfetka_авиация , #svetikfetka_iceland —————————————————————————- I want to advice you to watch movie “Alive “1993. It’s a true story about Uruguayan plane crash in 1972 somewhere in Andes mountains. This story is epic🔥 ⠀Have you watched? If not yet,save it for later✅
