I once had a "dimple" much larger than those in the horizontal tail-plane. Had to drill a vent hole in it to relieve it. There is a story that involves ice but that's for another day.

Jaba, what would you know about Engineering...

One from the last couple of months.

Where? (Probably pretty easy)

1) Perhaps we read too much some time into others posts?

2) Waffle is also called "oil canning".
3) Why does the RV10 have a waffle plate?

Please see the RVator for additional details.

We recently tested a possible RV-10 wing in the prototype shop…all 31.5 feet of it. Construction is similar to an RV-9 wing. There are three spanwise J-stiffeners. Two are on the top, one forward of the spar and one aft, and another on the bottom between the main and rear spars. The main spar is dimensionally different, but conceptually identical to the spars used in the RV-7/8/9–a channel bent from 0.063" 2024 aluminum, milled bars top and bottom, and a "waffle plate" providing additional cap strip area and all the necessary vertical stiffening. Skins and ribs are perfectly ordinary. For test purposes, we did not use an actual wing tip, because shot bags slide off the curved shape. Instead, we extended and braced the bottom skin to provide the tip surface area.


Happy Christmas you lot, and try to stay calm despite your initial personal feelings.

Yep, I think T28D did fail to pick up on my subtle attempt at humour with my UL mate from down in the Gong. If he lightened up a little I might not bite so easily.

Been a long wile since I read that article Frank, thanks for the flash back

Merry Christmas y'all.

Jabawocky, Hi I have been enjoying the thread and your picture of the wing w/ wrinkles evoked me to register ( http://www.pprune.org/6914998-post8972.html )question, a plastic dome near fuselage on wing, what is that for?

Are you referring to the vent in the perspex window?

Other than that the wing has a fuel cap and another circle thing that looks like a vent or similar, but not a dome.

Fathom that is where a 767s ASI lives in cruise - right up against the barber pole...see the command speed bug...its normal.

Having said that Keg the last time I dressed up in a Santa suite (Wau Golf Club Xmas party 1989) and climbed into an aircraft (Pacific Helicopters Chopper) we hit (the one and only) power line on approach to the clubhouse and blacked out the entire town for all of xmas day and most of Boxing Day.

Santa's Sleigh took a hammering - electrical cable wrapped around everything - not to mention Santa and his Elf near **** themselves

Lightbulb

Didn't take long for someone to notice. 340 KIAS @ FL270 in smooth air and F/O PF with thrust levers back. I think we were pretty right.

'Whirlpools'

Asw28,

I reckon your pic is in the Buccanneer Archipelago. To be precise I reckon the U-shaped pass under the wing is 'Whirlpools'. I also reckon your enroute from CTI to DBY????

FMC.
