Poor Man's Wind Tunnel - P-51 Type Scoop tuft testing on a Glasair
Unexpected airflow during tuft testing and development of a P-51 type scoop
on a Glasair. The incoming shaft of air remains in a tight straight
group, holding the same size and shape as the scoop inlet until impacting
the radiator face. Watch the air flow tumble and actually go backwards.
Air enters the scoop at 175 MPH.
The engine for this aircraft is a Subaru six cylinder EG33 from a SVX
Aircraft Emergency And Landing in a Glasair - the impossible turn ???
My Glasair engine is a Subaru SVX EG-33. Six bearings in the planetary
speed reduction unit failed during departure. I declared an in-flight
emergency and immediately returned for landing. Total flight time was 63
I failed to plug the camera mike in so you don't hear the engine monitor
blaring out alarms or chatter between other pilots and myself.
Departure was made with 10 degrees of flaps and remained there until
landing with 25 degrees. The buzzer during much of the flight is the "gear
up" with "flaps extended" warning horn ... the stall horn never sounded.
Speed did drop but the flight never reached critically low speed. Power
was intentionally reduced to keep gearbox temps down. I fly patrol flights
at 500 ft or less, often 6 to 7 hrs a day. So I do have low level
maneuvering experience. Some may call this the impossible turn but power
was available during the entire flight.
Ultimate Reno Air Race dead-stick landing after blown engine and propeller snaps off!!!
Kevin Eldredge, air race pilot at the Reno Air Races came to win in 2010 in
the Super Sport Class. In his attempt to break Jon Sharp's Qualifying
record of 412 mph the turbulence and G's ere too much for the engine and
the oil filter housing broke off, dumping the oil, over-speeding the
propeller, an then blowing a huge hole in the Thunderbolt Lycoming
engine.... See video and aftermath of racing to WIN!!!! FOLLOW KEVIN AIR

Subaru SVX LS-L Alcyone 1 Owner 3.3L F6 Flat-Six Coupe 1 Owner AWD Start Up
Test Drive Review http://www.1OwnerCarGuy.com Here is a very nice 1 Owner
Subaru SVX that has the big 3.3L Flat 6 Engine and AWD. This car was
surprisingly quick and has a lot of power. Plenty of power for anything you
need and still gets good gas mileage. The exterior of this car is very nice
and a nice bright red color which you dont' see very often on these cars.
You don't see many of these cars period. The paint is nice but faded on the
top surfaces. This car is straight as can be. Comes with all the books and
you can really tell the previous owner really cared for this car. The
interior is just immaculate with the leather seats and suede interior. The
interior shows very little wear and is as clean as can be. This is a very
nice car that I would just drive like it is or you can fix it up and have
yourself a very nice car.

The Subaru Alcyone SVX, also known outside of its home market Japan as the
Subaru SVX, is a two-door grand tourer coupé that was sold by Subaru, the
automobile manufacturing division of Japanese transportation conglomerate
Fuji Heavy Industries (FHI). Produced from 1991 to December 1996, it was
FHI's first attempt to enter the luxury/performance car market. Its
intention was to combine two seemingly contradictory elements—comfort and
performance. The name "Alcyone" (pronounced "el-SIGH-uh-nee") refers to
the brightest star in the Pleiades star cluster, on which the Subaru logo

Airplane Brake Failure Accident - Glasair Crash - Cockpit View Plane Crash
CONTAINS LANGUAGE NOT SUITABLE FOR YOUNGER VIEWERS.
The Glasair has no nose wheel steering... only differential braking.
Rudder effectiveness degrades rapidly as the aircraft slows below 70 MPH.
Full left rudder was applied throughout this incident.
The airplanes brake line ruptures and the plane is pulled to the right. I
wasted time pumping the left brake thinking their must be air in the line.
To avoid a runway light, the right brake was tapped just as we exited the
pavement. My plan was to allow the plane to slow in the grass, after
passing the culvert I would use the right brake to come to a stop ... the
unseen erosion gully modified that plan.
This Glasair is powered with a six cylinder 202 cubic inch Subaru SVX
Alcyone EG33 engine. We were in route to an air race in Tennessee when
this overrun occurred. We won "Silver" in the Sport Air Race League 2011
