    Page 23, but the whole thing is worth reading.
    BTW, this is fantastic - really interesting. It's built very much like plywood boat hulls or kayaks - stiff, fair, light. Solid blocks here and there for reinforcement just like a boat. These days they'd make that with West System epoxy resin for all the bonding. It's cool the way the wing is built - a hollow box beam at front and rear, with ribs between and a sandwich skin. That engine cradle essentially cantilevers off the forward wing spar, which seems like it would cause a lot of twist, but then it's balanced with the struts for the landing gear. Then the landing gear loads are transmitted to the steel engine cradle. Clever.

    The one my son built was the black nighttime reconnaissance plane I think.

        looks like it was still producing power. i bet the only indication in the cockpit was the N1 vibration gage probably went through the roof.

          How sucky is it when a passenger has to tell the flight attendant, and then the flight attendant has to tell the captain, that your engine is about to fart out some blades? I assume you have to go back to look?

            Looks like there's more to it than previous incidents involving nose cone separation (http://www.bst-tsb.gc.ca/eng/rapport.../a02p0021.html) since you can see what appears to be a glowing bearing. With just the cone removed there's supposed to be a front accessory drive cover over the #1 bearing, for some reason that's gone in this case, it appears to be still attached to the cone bouncing around on the IGVs. With that gone N1 tach went with it so I'm sure the pilots noticed something when N1 dropped to zero and oil quantity started falling.

              So is that oil nozzle in the diagram not spraying oil on that center bearing, and it cooked itself?

              Comment


                Looks that way from the diagram. I don't work on them or design them or anything I just pulled some diagrams so I had an idea of what I was looking at.

                  I heard a satisfying rumble just now, walked outside, and a DC-3 passed right over my house, doing some little tail skids. Nice.

                    Leaving for Oshkosh on Sunday. I have my photo assignments, and I'm in the process of putting together a photo shoot with a dozen Beech Staggerwings, and at least one Spartan Executive.

                    Should be a good week.

                    Will

                      Have fun at Oshkosh! I love the videos of the ATC work. Amazing how they pack you guys all in.

                        Saw Miss Montana the DC-3 fly over this afternoon, headed straight east. Might be where she's headed!

                          Yep, they say she's on the flight line in "Vintage parking."

                            RFP is out for Canada's Fighter replacement:

                            https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/ott...-rfp-1.5221610

                            Still only 88, which is sad to hear. (down from ~138 CF-18s at purchase)

                            Also goddamn the CBC comments section is cancer

                              Holy Crap. Twin Mustang at Oshkosh. I saw a drawing of them when I was a kid, didn't think it was real. Apparently counter rotating engines to boot?

                                My final photo shoot was with Miss Montana, the EAA Trimotor, and a Short Sherpa, all of which were Missoula Montana smoke jumpers planes. The Trimotor was the first, Miss Montana, second, and the Sherpa. I will share the pics when I have the green light to do so. I think they will be used in an upcoming magazine article.

                                Yes, that is a line of planes on the taxiway departing from Oshkosh. Its like that every morning.

                                That is a D18 Twin Beech, there were 3 B25s there, but they were parked to the left of this bird.

                                Here are a few low res versions of some of my shots.
