Re: Trying to win a bar bet

Found it!

The instrument cluster is from an Antonov AN-2.

The lower left instrument is the radar altimeter, and the lower center is the fuel indicator.

UCAP #448 - "Kilo Alpha Fly-in"

Guys, Thanks for letting me sit in on the Tuesday recording of the first 40 minutes of the show. I wish I could have stayed longer, but I had some friends I had to meet up with for supper. Never did run into any of you during the rest of the week, but then again I was busy on Airside, as I'm sure yo...

(Probably just to show you your speed in a dive vs. level flight which can't exceed much be...

Re: UCAP #444 - "Into the Clag"

7th November 1974 Test Concorde G-AXDN flew from RAF Fairford, England to Bangor, Maine, in a record time of 2hrs 56 mins; this was the fastest ever east-west crossing of the North Atlantic by a commercial airliner (even though it wasn't in 'commercial' service yet). Got to walk through this airfram...

Unfortunately can't stay past Friday due to time/family/work constraints, but hope to have a blast for the few days that I can be there! Since there is no official meetup, we n...

Re: UCAP #444 - "Into the Clag"

Wow it looks so much less "sterile" in that section now that the museum has placed so much more around the shuttle. When I was there in Jun 2017 there was a stage in front of the spacecraft, and and a presentation/discussion of Women in Aerospace going on with several members from the Air ...
