Planes of Fame Airshow 2013 (part 1)
With the 2014 show just around the corner I thought I would put together a couple of videos from last year's awesome event. The Planes of Fame museum hosts one of the best airshows/warbird gatherings in the country, many unique and rare aircraft attend the annual show and 2013 was no exception. 'Lighting Strikes' was the 2013 theme and with that there were 5 flying P-38 lightning's and one on static display. The 2014 show will be held from May 3-4, more info can be found on their website http://planesoffame.org/ and also their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Planes-of-Fame-Air-Museum/23688958789?ref=ts





Reno Air Races Accident NTSB Hearing (2012)
Credit: National Transportation Safety Board - NTSB WPR11MA454 Deteriorated Parts Allowed Flutter Which Led to Fatal Crash at 2011 Reno Air Races WASHINGTON - The National Transportation Safety Board determined today that deteriorated locknut inserts found in the highly modified North American P-51D airplane that crashed during the 2011 National Championship Air Races in Reno, Nevada, allowed the trim tab attachment screws to become loose, and even initiated fatigue cracking in one screw. This condition, which resulted in reduced stiffness in the elevator trim system, ultimately led to aerodynamic flutter at racing speed that broke the trim tab linkages, resulting in a loss of controllability and the eventual crash. On September 16, 2011, as the experimental single-seat P-51D airplane "The Galloping Ghost," traveling about 445 knots, or 512 mph, in the third lap of the six-lap race, passed pylon 8, it experienced a left-roll upset and high-G pitch up. During the upset sequence, the airplane's vertical acceleration peaked at 17.3 G, causing incapacitation of the pilot. Seconds later, a section of the left elevator trim tab separated in flight. The airplane descended and impacted the ramp in the spectator box seating area, killing the pilot and 10 spectators and injuring more than 60 others. "In Reno, the fine line between observing risk and being impacted by the consequences when something goes wrong was crossed," said NTSB Chairman Deborah A. P. Hersman. "The pilots understood the risks they assumed; the spectators assumed their safety had been assessed and addressed." Contributing to the accident were the undocumented and untested major modifications made to the airplane, as well as the pilot's operation of the airplane in the unique air racing environment without adequate flight testing. The nearly 70-year-old airplane had undergone numerous undocumented modifications. The modifications, designed to increase speed, included shortening of the wings, installation of a boil-off cooling system for the engine, increasing the elevator counterweights, modification of the pitch trim system, and changing the incidence of the horizontal and vertical stabilizers. Although the Federal Aviation Administration required that a flight standards district office be notified in writing of any major changes made to The Galloping Ghost before it could be flown, investigators could find no records that such notifications were made except for the installation of the boil-off cooling system. The undocumented major modifications were identified through wreckage examinations, photographic evidence, and interviews with ground crewmembers. In April, while the investigation was ongoing and after the NTSB's investigative hearing in January on air race and air show safety, the NTSB issued 10 safety recommendations to the Reno Air Racing Association, the National Air racing Group Unlimited Division, and the FAA. These recommendations addressed: requiring engineering evaluations for aircraft with major modifications; raising the level of safety for spectators and personnel near the race course; improving FAA guidance for air race and course design; providing race pilots with high-G training and evaluating the feasibility of G-suit requirements for race pilots; and tracking the resolution of race aircraft discrepancies identified during prerace technical inspections. Although no additional safety recommendations were issued today, the Board reclassified nine existing recommendations as described below: Eligibility Requirements for Aircraft with Major Modifications - recommendations A 12 9 and A-12-13 classified "Open—Acceptable Response" Prerace Technical Inspection Discrepancy Tracking - recommendation A 12 10, classified "Closed—Acceptable Action" Spectator Safety - recommendations A 12 14 and 15, classified "Closed—Acceptable Action" High G Training, G-Suit Feasibility for Pilots - recommendations A 12 11, -12, -16, and -17, classified "Closed—Acceptable Action" A tenth safety recommendation, issued to the FAA, which addressed air race and course design guidance was reclassified as "Open—Acceptable Response" on July 25, 2012. "It's good news for the air races that so many of our recommendations have been addressed," said Chairman Hersman. "We will continue to push for the full implementation of all of our safety recommendations." A synopsis of the NTSB report, including the probable cause and a complete list of the reclassified safety recommendations, is available at: http://www.ntsb.gov/news/events/2012/reno_nv/index.html.

Pilot Matt Hall Skims Water During Red Bull Air Race Qualifying Session Windsor 2010
Credit: Red Bull Air Race © Red Bull Media House http://redbullairrace.com WINDSOR, Ontario - Australia's Matt Hall had a scare during the first Qualifying session at the Red Bull Air Race in Windsor on Saturday when his plane touched the surface of the Detroit River but the former RAAF pilot quickly recovered and returned safely to Race Airport. Hall was challenging for the lead in the first of two Qualifying sessions when he suffered an aerodynamic wing stall. His left wing skimmed the surface of the river that separates the United States and Canada. His right wheel cover hit the water as well but Hall was quickly able to regain control of his MXS-R aircraft and climb up away into the sky. "I felt I was having a fairly good run," Hall said. "I might have skipped twice on the water. It's a very disappointing result for me. It's the motor racing equivalent of touching the wall." Hall, who fought combat missions with the U.S. Air Force in Iraq, was confident his plane could be repaired in time for Qualifying 2 an hour later. He is hoping to get his third career podium in Windsor and has been in the top three in most training sessions this week. "The plane is damaged but will be recoverable," Hall said. "Our game plan is to get some rest for now. It will hit me harder in a few hours time. Everyone in aviation has been in some fairly tight situations before. I've been in tight situations before. I'm disappointed in myself for putting myself in that situation. We're okay but we'll move on from that. Everything's fine." Hall's plane was inspected in the air after his safety climb out by Nigel Lamb, another pilot who was flying in a holding pattern. Lamb said the damage all appeared to be superficial. Hall then landed safely back at the Race Airport in Windsor. "The main damage is on the right aileron," Hall said. "I think the plane is not that badly damaged. It is going to be a matter of replacing parts." Hall has two podiums in his career, including a second place finish in his home race in Perth, Australia in April. He joined the race in 2009 and became the most successful rookie in race history last year when he took third place overall. Hall is in fourth place so far this year.

Sunday Gold Race 2013
The final Gold race of 2013 saw a nice mix of fast planes ranging from the small giant killer Yak-11 'Czech Mate', all the way up to the beast called 'Dreadnought' the mighty super Sea Fury powered by the 28 cylinder R-4360. Steve Hinton flying Voodoo had the pole position while Matt Jackson flying Strega had to start on the outside of the formation in seventh position, on the start Matt wasted no time passing the other 5 racers but Steve in Voodoo was so far in front the only way Matt could've caught him is if Voodoo broke. This is the first win for Bob Button and team Voodoo, Bob and his wife have been campaigning Voodoo for 17 years with many ups and downs and nothing could've been better than winning Reno on the events 50th anniversary.

WORLDS FASTEST propellar driven AIRCRAFT Russian Tu 95MC Nuclear Bomber
Russian Aircraft The Tupolev Tu-95 (Russian: Туполев Ту--95; NATO reporting name: Bear) is a large, four-engine turboprop-powered strategic bomber and missile platform. First flown in 1952, the Tu-95 entered service with the Soviet Union in 1956 and is expected to serve the Russian Air Force until at least 2040.[1] A naval development of the bomber is designated Tu-142. The aircraft has four Kuznetsov NK-12 engines, developed by the Kuznetsov Design Bureau with participation of Ferdinand Brandner and other captured German engineers, each driving contra-rotating propellers. An airliner variant Tu-114 holds the record as the world's fastest propeller-driven aircraft. Some experimental aircraft were designed for theoretically higher speeds, but none attained or registered them. It also remains the only turboprop-powered strategic bomber in operational use. Its distinctively swept-back wings are at 35°, a very sharp angle by the standards of propeller-driven aircraft, and justified by its operating speeds and altitudes. Its blades, which rotate faster than the speed of sound, according to one media source, make it arguably the noisiest military aircraft on earth,[2] with only the experimental 1950s era Republic XF-84H "Thunderscreech" turboprop powered American fighter design as a likely rival.[citation needed] It was reportedly so loud that the underwater Hydrophones of submerged submarines and SOSUS could detect it. Russia Listeni/ˈrʌʃə/ or /ˈrʊʃə/ (Russian: Россия, tr. Rossiya, IPA: [rɐˈsʲijə] ( listen)), also officially known as the Russian Federation[10] (Russian: Российская Федерация, tr. Rossiyskaya Federatsiya, IPA: [rɐˈsʲijskəjə fʲɪdʲɪˈrat͡sɨjə] ( listen)), is a country in northern Eurasia.[11] It is a federal semi-presidential republic, comprising 83 federal subjects. From northwest to southeast, Russia shares land borders with Norway, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland (both with Kaliningrad Oblast), Belarus, Ukraine, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, China, Mongolia, and North Korea. It shares maritime borders with Japan by the Sea of Okhotsk and the US state of Alaska across the Bering Strait. At 17,075,400 square kilometres (6,592,800 sq mi), Russia is the largest country in the world, covering more than one-eighth of the Earth's inhabited land area. Russia is also the world's ninth most populous nation with 143 million people as of 2012.[12] Extending across the entirety of northern Asia and much of Europe, Russia spans nine time zones and incorporates a wide range of environments and landforms. An aircraft is a machine that is able to fly by gaining support from the air, or, in general, the atmosphere of a planet. It counters the force of gravity by using either static lift or by using the dynamic lift of an airfoil,[1] or in a few cases the downward thrust from jet engines. The human activity that surrounds aircraft is called aviation. Crewed aircraft are flown by an onboard pilot, but unmanned aerial vehicles may be remotely controlled or self-controlled by onboard computers. Aircraft may be classified by different criteria, such as lift type, propulsion, usage and others. The Russian Air Force (Russian: Военно-воздушные cилы России, tr. Voyenno-Vozdushnye Sily Rossii) is the aerial warfare service branch of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. It is currently under the command of Lieutenant General Viktor Bondarev. The Russian Navy has its own air arm, the Russian Naval Aviation, which is the former Soviet Aviatsiya Voyenno Morskogo Flota ("Naval Aviation"), or AV-MF). The Air Force was formed from parts of the former Soviet Air Forces after the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991--92. Boris Yeltsin's creation of the Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation on 7 May 1992, can be taken as a convenient formation date for the new Air Force. Since that time, the Air Force has suffered severe setbacks due to lack of resources, and has constantly shrunk in size. Since Vladimir Putin became President of the Russian Federation however, much more money has been allocated to the Armed Forces as a whole. The United States Air Force (USAF) is the aerial warfare service branch of the United States Armed Forces and one of the seven American uniformed services. Initially part of the United States Army, the USAF was formed as a separate branch of the military on 18 September 1947 under the National Security Act of 1947.[5] It is the most recent branch of the U.S. military to be formed, and is the largest and one of the world's most technologically advanced air forces. The USAF articulates its core functions as Nuclear Deterrence Operations, Special Operations, Air Superiority, Global Integrated ISR, Space Superiority, Command and Control, Cyberspace Superiority, Personnel Recovery, Global Precision Attack, Building Partnerships, Rapid Global Mobility and Agile.[6] Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin

Unlimited air racer 'Furias' qual with crash landing, Reno 2012
This video is from 2012 when team Furias finished their several year resto/rebuild work and arrived on the ramp at Reno with this beautiful, freshly painted beast of an airplane. This was one of the most heavily modified super Sea Fury's to ever grace the ramp at Reno, she sported a very powerful race prepped Pratt & Whitney R-4360 Wasp Major engine that could pump out 4,000hp all day long, they also fitted her with a custom racing canopy. It also had a custom boil off cooling system where they removed the oil coolers from the leading edges of the wings and moved them inside the fuselage, to take care of all the engine and boiler data the team also had a custom telemetry system that was maintained by a McLaren race team technician. Unfortunately during their qualifying attempt they had a part failure in the landing gear system which led to a gear collapse on landing resulting in a very broken airframe, fortunately race pilot Matt Jackson made it out with only a few bumps and bruises.

Hawker Sea Fury Reno Unlimited Air Racer- WHAT AN AIR-MACHINE !
This video is of Rod Lewis' highly modified Hawker Sea Fury ("September Fury") taken at the Planes of Fame Museum at Chino airport, California. Steve Hinton is the pilot. The Sea Fury was a British shipboard fighter plane in the late 1940s and early 1950s. This aircraft now has an approximately 3,800 horsepower Wright 18-cylinder engine to replace the original 18-cylinder Bristol Centaurus. WOW! It has a custom-designed "boil off" oil-cooling system designed by Pete Law (head of thermodynamics for the Lockheed SR-71 program, among many others). This aircraft has been clocked at 508 miles-per-hour on the Reno, Nevada race course. Very great stuff!
