The asshole Air Force is still trying to kill the Warthog claiming to save money, when in truth to maintain and support the A-10 costs 0.21% of their $255,000,000,000 budget. They want extra money to dump into the mishandled nightmare called f-35, that even if by some miracle gets finished won't hold a candle to the A-10 for close air support. You know, the one stinking job that helps and protects boots on the ground.

While I'm at it...

The United States Air Force never really wanted GPS. The 621B program, the precursor to GPS, was underfunded. After it evolved into the GPS program in the early 1970s, the Air Force largely neglected it, to the point of disowning it and defunding it. A few times, it tried to kill its own creation, and GPS was kept alive by the Pentagon’s largesse…

One reason the Air Force was slow to embrace GPS is the space-based projects were never seen as a priority. “The Air Force is not a big user of space,” says Scott Page..”The Air Force gets to build for space, but the Marine Corps, Army, and Navy are much more reliant on actual space services than the Air Force itself is. The budget for space is in the Air Force, but in terms of the number of customers and users, they’re all in the other services.

W.T.F?



This is T.F.W.:

Quote:
Depending on the type of aircraft, pilots may be required to apply a Wind Correction Angle (WCA) and “crab” the plane aligning nose and tail with the wind direction to counter the drifting effect of side winds during strong crosswind landings.

Whilst most of the planes “de-crab” once the main landing gear touches the ground (or shortly before), the U.S. Air Force iconic B-52 bomber was designed in such a way the landing gear can be set up to 20 degrees left to right of centerline for both takeoff and landing.

In this way, the Stratofortress can stay sideways even after touchdown.
From here.

What an amazing job Boeing did with that aircraft. No wonder it's still going strong.

Quote:
Kumar Mysore, from the Royal Aeronautical Society, told the Mail that the square shape might be due to how the weight of the Airbus A380 distributes itself on a deflated tire.

"You can see that the wheel is not damaged at all, as it is designed to take this weight.

"The effect is the same as when you squeeze a rubber ring toy with different intensity, it can turn into a different shape.

"In an A380, for this particular situation, it happens to be squarish."
I realize he was put in a position to satisfy the reporters, probably on short notice, but what clear and utter bullshit!
