    The 2020 AVIATION thread

    If it is a Bronco, then they should have painted the Ford Bronco logo at the top of the vertical stabilzer instead of the Ford Mustang logo.

    In the Detroit area it was illegally dumped electro-plating fluid. Owner went to prison and clean-up cost is over $4 million. https://www.crainsdetroit.com/environment/source-green-ooze-be-demolished-owner-leave-prison-early green goo ooze on I696.webp

    Moore sailboats Liquidating?

    Weird. Just two months ago they announced the 2021 spring launch of Moore 33. https://moore33.com/2020/09/24/yacht-design-and-construction-icons-to-launch-a-mid-size-racer-in-2021/

    Yes, altitude does make a difference, as well as temp. Take a look at the attached table. At sea level and STP, Mach 1 is 761.1 mph. At 30,000 feet Mach 1 is 678.1 mph. And at 60,000 feet Mach 1 is 659.8 mph. The change is not straight line. So, at 100,000 feet Mach 1 would be about 655 mph. Now to Joe Kittinger. Per Wiki: “On August 16, 1960, Kittinger made the final high-altitude jump at 102,800 feet. Towing a small drogue parachute for initial stabilization, he fell for 4 minutes and 36 seconds, reaching a maximum speed of 614 miles per hour…” Fabulous, record-setting achievement, but I don’t see him breaking the sound barrier.

    Stargazing app?

    SkySafari Plus. Downloaded it to find Neowise and been happy ever since. Cost was $7 and worth it. Learn something new every time I use it. https://apps.apple.com/app/skysafari-6-plus/id1262647300

    8 first-responders swept off pier in Lake Michigan rescue attempt. Eight Muskegon-area first-responders were swept into Lake Michigan on Sunday night during an effort to rescue two victims in the water off the Muskegon Channel. A 29-year-old Fruitport Township man was missing and several firefighters were treated for injuries from the water rescue shortly after 10 p.m. Sunday during 50 mile per hour winds and waves of 12 feet and higher along the pier. https://www.detroitnews.com/story/news/local/michigan/2020/11/16/8-rescuers-swept-off-pier-lake-michigan-muskegon/6321120002/

Gusts were solidly in the 40s from late afternoon yesterday until 9:00PM - max gust was 48.6 knots. Today gusts have edged down to the middle 30s. Waves have been in double digits, formerly at 12.5' and now down to 10'.

    Not RR - it is an Allison V-1710. And the Brits did not make the RR Merlin for the US aircraft. Packard made nearly 60,000 Merlins, under license from RR in Detroit, MI. Some went to the UK for Spitfires, Hurricanes and Lancaster bombers. US used the Merlin in P-51 Mustangs. Packard made significant advancements (nearly 1,000) in the design of the engine. In the four years from 1940 to 1944 the engine had evolved from the 1260 HP variant Merlin 20 (XX) to the 2280 HP Merlin V-1650 – a 1020 HP increase!

    s/v Denis Sullivan in jeopardy

    Actually, it more than $300,000. Quote from the website link above: "With programming at a standstill, she has generated no revenue. The annual maintenance for a boat of its size and age costs Discovery World roughly $500,000."
