Re: Episode #109

Note: we prefer the term "conventional gear" to that ugly word, "taildragger!" I really don't care what you call it as long as it's not a nosedragger. :) Once you get the landings down, move on the the 1-turn spin + loop + roll sequence..... not in the traffic pattern. Remember....

Re: Episode 100!

The 747-200 systems book talks about the fuel-oil heat exchange system more in the area of an oil cooler. There is also a fuel heater system that uses bleed air for the heating with valve ...
