    Hornet is flying into the sunset...

    I think it’d be cool to put the Blues in the T-45. cheers Pete

    F-16 ADF

    The fin base for the ADF was an "A" model; so starting with a "C" fin base is a bit more challenging that you describe. Cheers Pete

    L-39 gear up landing

    Operational speeds are defined in terms of "V" speeds (V for velocity) For example Vle is "Maximum Landing gear extended speed", Vfe is "Maximum flap extended speed", etc Cheers Pete

    L-39 gear up landing

    Hi Alan 120 knots for gear down, full flaps and speedbrakes extended is the normal approach speed. For the L-39, approach speed is not adjusted for weight; just configuration. If I had an AOA guage, I would fly AOA instead, and would likely see minor airspeed differences for weight. Bulkheads are fine..Landing in the grass is a really bad idea actually. I get that question a lot. The grass is an unpredictable surface; with the chance of something digging in way too high. The runway is smooth,hard and predictable..and I know how the jet is going to behave on the pavement..in the grass, all bets are off-way too risky. cheers Pete

    New! Live Resin helicopter figures

    Yes..I got all of these for my Kitty Hawk HH-60G..and I had the same reaction. Fortunately the heads are separate, and Live Resin has some head sets that allow you to change the look of each- Cheers Pete

    L-39 gear up landing

    Potentially not too bad..just expensive. The obvious flaps, sheet metal, nose gear door, speed brake actuators, antennas..The engine will need an inspection. Not sure about all of the foam that got sprayed into the cockpit... We're sorting it out- Cheers, Pete

    Truer words have not been spoken.

    L-39 gear up landing

    Thanks Nick- It road down the runway on the nose gear door, flaps, and the speed brake actuator fairings..not too much touching the pavement. Cheers Pete

    Maru my dear..you are always there with a kind word. Anytime you want to fly, you just let me know- best Pete

    L-39 gear up landing

    Thanks Alan, the fighter pilot prayer coin coin has two sides: “God please don’t let me screw up”, and “I’d rather die than look bad”. lucky for me that everything went our way. I will never forget the sound in the cockpit of the jet sliding down the runway. Hard to describe. cheers Pete
