      A Few Simple Rules   05/22/2017

      Sailing Anarchy is a very lightly moderated site. This is by design, to afford a more free atmosphere for discussion. There are plenty of sailing forums you can go to where swearing isn't allowed, confrontation is squelched and, and you can have a moderator finger-wag at you for your attitude. SA tries to avoid that and allow for more adult behavior without moderators editing your posts and whacking knuckles with rulers. We don't have a long list of published "thou shalt nots" either, and this is by design. Too many absolute rules paints us into too many corners. So check the Terms of Service - there IS language there about certain types of behavior that is not permitted. We interpret that lightly and permit a lot of latitude, but we DO reserve the right to take action when something is too extreme to tolerate (too racist, graphic, violent, misogynistic, etc.). Yes, that is subjective, but it allows us discretion. Avoiding a laundry list of rules allows for freedom; don't abuse it. However there ARE a few basic rules that will earn you a suspension, and apparently a brief refresher is in order. 1) Allegations of pedophilia - there is no tolerance for this. So if you make allegations, jokes, innuendo or suggestions about child molestation, child pornography, abuse or inappropriate behavior with minors etc. about someone on this board you will get a time out. This is pretty much automatic; this behavior can have real world effect and is not acceptable. Obviously the subject is not banned when discussion of it is apropos, e.g. talking about an item in the news for instance. But allegations or references directed at or about another poster is verboten. 2) Outing people - providing real world identifiable information about users on the forums who prefer to remain anonymous. Yes, some of us post with our real names - not a problem to use them. However many do NOT, and if you find out someone's name keep it to yourself, first or last. This also goes for other identifying information too - employer information etc. You don't need too many pieces of data to figure out who someone really is these days. Depending on severity you might get anything from a scolding to a suspension - so don't do it. I know it can be confusing sometimes for newcomers, as SA has been around almost twenty years and there are some people that throw their real names around and their current Display Name may not match the name they have out in the public. But if in doubt, you don't want to accidentally out some one so use caution, even if it's a personal friend of yours in real life. 3) Posting While Suspended - If you've earned a timeout (these are fairly rare and hard to get), please observe the suspension. If you create a new account (a "Sock Puppet") and return to the forums to post with it before your suspension is up you WILL get more time added to your original suspension and lose your Socks. This behavior may result a permanent ban, since it shows you have zero respect for the few rules we have and the moderating team that is tasked with supporting them. Check the Terms of Service you agreed to; they apply to the individual agreeing, not the account you created, so don't try to Sea Lawyer us if you get caught. Just don't do it. Those are the three that will almost certainly get you into some trouble. IF YOU SEE SOMEONE DO ONE OF THESE THINGS, please do the following: Refrain from quoting the offending text, it makes the thread cleanup a pain in the rear Press the Report button; it is by far the best way to notify Admins as we will get e-mails. Calling out for Admins in the middle of threads, sending us PM's, etc. - there is no guarantee we will get those in a timely fashion. There are multiple Moderators in multiple time zones around the world, and anyone one of us can handle the Report and all of us will be notified about it. But if you PM one Mod directly and he's off line, the problem will get dealt with much more slowly. Other behaviors that you might want to think twice before doing include: Intentionally disrupting threads and discussions repeatedly. Off topic/content free trolling in threads to disrupt dialog Stalking users around the forums with the intent to disrupt content and discussion Repeated posting of overly graphic or scatological porn content. There are plenty web sites for you to get your freak on, don't do it here. And a brief note to Newbies... No, we will not ban people or censor them for dropping F-bombs on you, using foul language, etc. so please don't report it when one of our members gives you a greeting you may find shocking. We do our best not to censor content here and playing swearword police is not in our job descriptions. Sailing Anarchy is more like a bar than a classroom, so handle it like you would meeting someone a little coarse - don't look for the teacher. Thanks.

I do not know about the RAF but the US Navy charges an arm and a leg for movies or advertising. Somewhere on the web you can find the per hour rates for what aircraft. Now I have heard the opposite stories from the Hollywood types. Their take is that the military service gets free advertising and the pilot ends up getting free flight time all paid for by the producers of the movie, advertisment etc.

 

The numbers I remember for Navy S.E.A.Ls the movie with everyones favorite action star Charlie Sheen was $5000 per hour for a SH-3 Helo. This was 1987 or 1988. I can not even imagine what a Typhoon per hour would be charged if the US Navy owned one in 2012.

Well thanks to google I can tell you that the cost per. flight hour in 2010 for a legacy F-18 C(the old ones) was $19,000 per hour. I am guessing and perhaps someone with a little more knowledge is that with fuel costs higher and those euro engine parts costs being around my guess 30% higher than the good ol GE404 that we are looking at an RAF cost of $30,000 per hour from start to stop.

The lack of clean air was not my first concern.

 

Even though the camera is bolted down and all of those people have a nice strong attachment via material similar to a seatbelt to the C-130....why are they not being sucked into those two engines?

 

I mean come on ! Something is not right here. On a carrier deck men have been sucked up by a pair of J 52 engines that are at idle. How in the hell are these guys able to just stand there?

 

Photoshop?

"I was driving the bus that those pictures were taken from. It was for the advertising campaign showing the 'phoon flying over bits of the country shaped like SA-80s and the like while slogans such as "we need gunners" were flashed on the screen etc.....

 

I was given the footage of the days filming which is spectacular. I remember the loady saying he could almost push the nose of the 'phoon away from us.

 

Great day out. I also remember our door got stuck after the shoot and we led a particularly un-sporty run in and break as a pair at 150Kts (IIRC) back to Coningsby!"

 

From the link above. SHIT!

It's just very turbulent air. The EJ200 is a modern engine; its inlet duct, small diameter, fan blade design and digital engine control make it very tolerant of localized pressure distortion on the fan inlet face.

 

Cool pics and even cooler external links. This engine weenie thanks you.

No airflow thru the C-130 - no getting sucked out
