Our offices

To All,

Take it from someone who used to work in a cubicle...our offices may be small but the views are tremendous. Even the worst day flying is still better than the best day I had being an accountant

I have remarked earlier in this thread about the fantastic quality of these pictures, the latest by Eldon is superb, showing the actions of the rawness of our natural world,

Jolly well done to all of you some brilliant shots taken on the spur of the moment without any sort of preplanning or lighting.

Flying Squirell,
If I mighet be so bold to ask, Why do you have two slip and turn indicators and why are the wings not agreeing with the AH, genuine question, not cheek !

(Not Squirrel) The Schweizer 300CBi usually flies left skid low. The ball on attitude indicator is showing the proper reading, the ball on the TC will always show out of trim.

As I understand it the turn and slip indicator are to different observations. The ball (slip) indicates where the gravitational force is acting on the aircraft (including an acceleration forces). The turn indicator shows the rate of turn irrespective of aircraft attitude and generated by its own giro. The artificial horizon does exactly as it says, a representation of where the horizon is in relation to the aircraft. The photograph shows the aircraft banking to the right (artificial horizon) and turning to the right (turn indicator) the ball is slightly off centre which is probably due to the aircraft tending to fly slightly less skid low when the tell-tales are indicating a coordinated turn.
This is a slightly simplified explanation and stand to be corrected as only a humble PPL(H)
P.S. there are many examples in nature where two balls seem appropriate!

Another superb production by BlenderPilot in Mexico to begin 2006.

Thanks to Anthony Grey for the picture from Australia

Much appreciated guys.

Eldon - that's a beautiful portrait of the B2.

Stumbled on these shots over the weekend - one for the Robbie drivers on the forum, to compensate for the usual stick from the turbine guys... A genuine (not Photoshopped) AGM-114 Hellfire installation on a US Army R22-based UAV (the Maverick).
