"Fact is that kitty hawk was rough this year. Yet, their courage and determination isn't gone just yet. Will and orv throw themselves back into their work. Kate reports that all she and pop ever hear is the boys incessant jabbering about flying. September soon arrives Ohio mourns the assassination of its native son and longtime public servant, U.S. president William McKinley. What an added distress, this must be, as will travels to Chicago to speak at the western society of engineers. He gives a humble speech filled with praise for those upon whose shoulders he stands, especially Otto lilienthal and his now pier, Octavian. His words are well received, but for all his humility, we'll also know that, upon returning to Dayton, he and will must reckon with the fact that these very intellectual giants got so very much wrong. As orv later puts it, it was like groping in the dark. Lillian tall's figures were not to be relied upon. Nobody else had done any scientific experimenting along these lines. The boys face down this challenge upstairs in their bike shop with a 6 foot long, 16 inch square wind tunnel. Yet to experience the Edison touch, they rely on a gasoline engine to power an electric fan, thus creating their wind. As October and November pass, the duo laboriously cut and pound all the hacksaw blades and bicycle spokes into dozens of model biplanes, then send them through the tunnel. Slowly but surely, they unlearn the errors of auto lilienthal and move toward their next iteration of glider. But by December, the boys have to turn their attention back to manufacturing bikes. Yes, even with cigar loving Charlie Taylor's help, who's still very much employed by the rights and doing a great job, despite Kate's dislike of him. Will and or of can't check out indefinitely. Though, octopus certainly wants them to. He's so eager for them to carry on. He offers to ask his friend Andrew Carnegie to fund them so they can ignore the bike shop. We'll honor to climb down. Patiently, they build bikes through the winter of 1901 to 1902, and when spring arrives, they turn their attention from machines with two wheels to one machine with two wings. Using their own figures and data from the wind tunnel, the boys have high hopes for this year's trip to kitty hawk. In late August, 1902, will and ore of undertake what has become their annual pilgrimage to North Carolina's outer banks. They arrive at their sandy beach camp on the 29th, and immediately are in better spirits than last year. For one thing, the camp, which they get back in order over the next week in change, is becoming rather nice. They've built themselves an off road sand tolerant bicycle, deep in their water well, and above all else, will exalt. No Edward huffaker and no mosquitos. Yeah, we'll throw Edward in the same company as a mosquitos. Man, they really hate that guy. Starting on September 8th, they begin assembling this year's flying machine. With the wingspan of 32 feet, it's their biggest yet. In fact, the total wing area is 305 ft², almost double that of 1900 glider. As they assemble this monster of a soaring machine, they also take apart last year's. There just isn't space to house both. The boys have also added a new feature this time around. A rear rudder. All of this takes a week and a half, but by September 19th, the ready to fly. And this time I really mean they because orv is finally taken a crack of piloting. I can't tell you why the mustachioed right hadn't done so earlier. Perhaps will was just more interested or was taking all the risks to protect his little brother. After all, the dangers of flying are no joke, as orfs soon finds out. It's a late September day, 1902. Or of Wright stands on the sand, ready to pilot the glider just as soon as he gets the needed wind. And he can hear and see a breeze coming. Soon, he feels it. Reaching 12 mph, the wind is strong enough to produce the lift he needs. Charging forward, he soon airborne. But to his horror, or suddenly realizes this isn't breeze. He'll later call it a whirlwind. The nose of the glider jerks up hard about 25 feet, so he responds by tilting the forward rudder to descend. But only a moment later, the capricious wind shifts worse, the inexperienced pilot doesn't quite have the skill to handle the needed wing warping correctly in this situation. The glider slams into the ground, spitting or out headfirst. Thankfully, he's all right. Not even bruised. But The Rookie is a bit shaken, and it takes a few days to repair the glider. Things go smoothly on this trip from here on out though. On the night of October 2nd, too much coffee leaves an over caffeinated or unable to sleep. In the state, he realizes the immovable rudder is a problem. Fish to add a hinge. Because this isn't about the rear rodder responds differently and could assist with wing warping. Meanwhile, more visitors come, including kitty hawk locals, who've really grown to love the rights. The boys older brother, Lauren Wright, George spratt, Octavian, and octaves assistant, Augustus herring. But still no Edward huffaker. Will and orf politely suffer through octave and Augustus testing out a far inferior multi wing soaring machine. But by mid October, the boys are back to exclusively testing their own glider. By the time they depart for home on October 28th, the Wright brothers have logged some thousand flights this summer are gliding over 600 feet and staying in the air for 26 seconds. As Davi mcculla so eloquently sums up the Wright brothers 1902 trip to kitty hawk. They could soar they could float, they could dive and rise, circle and glide and land, all with assurance. Now they had only to build a motor. It shouldn't be that hard to get their hands on a motor in late 1902. As we know from the last episode, gasoline engines have really come into their own. And many of the nation's new horseless carriage makers are embracing it. In fact, it was only days before this year's kitty hawk trip wrapped up that Henry Ford's latest racer, 9 9 9, beat will and orb's fellow high in Alexander winton. It was Henry's second win over him. But the Wright brothers several increase only draw one response and what's offered is far too heavy. So once again, the boys head to their shop, but this time, they aren't the ones calling the shots. That would be their cigar chewing mechanic Charlie Taylor. Charlie has very limited experience puts him ahead of his two employers. And frankly, he gets engines in a way they don't. To quote Charlie. While the boys were handy with tools, they'd never done much machine work. And anyway, they were busy on the airframe. It was up to me. My only experience with the gasoline engine was an attempt to repair one in an automobile in 1901. And so, in the early months of 1903, Charlie works on the engine as the brothers focus on the propellers. Both are major undertakings, and frankly, works of genius. Again with echoes of our last episode, Charlie's engine has no carburetor per se. The gas sits in a one gallon tank, hanging from a wing strut and relies on gravity to feed the fuel to a shallow chamber where it can mix with the air. Then perform its explosive magic in the four stroke four cylinder 12 horsepower engine. Brilliantly, they keep its weight well under 200 pounds by having the engine block cast from aluminum. Meanwhile, the boys are crafting the propellers, which, to their surprise, proves to be a less developed technology than they had hoped. It appears that, just like routers, propellers respond differently to aircraft than watercraft. Yet, it seems no one else experimenting with propellers in the air has figured these details out. Once again, will and or of have to do it on their own. Yet incredibly, they again use a wind tunnel to collect data and sort this out in a mere matter of months. Charlie considers this achievement greatly underappreciated. To quote him again, I think the hardest job will in ore have had was with the propellers. I don't believe they were ever given enough credit for that development. The outcome is two handcrafted propellers of spruce wood, each measuring 8 and a half feet in diameter and set to spin in opposite directions. One clockwise, the other counterclockwise, so as to equalize the pole they create, otherwise known as gyroscopic action. Oh yeah, and let's not forget. They also build another aircraft. This one is so big, they can't even fully assemble it in Dayton, Ohio. The boys will put it together for the first time on site. But getting to that point is still fraught with difficulty. Though will and orb depart for an arrive at, there'd be beloved North Carolina outer banks beach in late September 1903, the disassembled aircraft won't make it until October 8th. It takes almost a month to get it put together, but then disaster strikes when the engine misfires and vibrates so hard, it damages the propeller shafts beyond repair. Ultimately, this force is orb to make a return trip to Dayton, where he and Charlie workout replacement shafts made of solid steel. It isn't until December 11th that orf makes it back to kitty hawk with these replacement parts. But the repairs are soon made, and the boys have finally reached the point to which their work has been building for so many years. It's time to attempt controlled, sustained, and powered flight. It's December 14th, 1903. We're among North Carolina's outer banks. At the Wright brothers beach camp, just outside kitty hawk. Will and ore are just finishing repairs on their flying machine. And what a sight it is to behold. From forward to rear rudder, it's wrapped in a beautiful and strong white muslin cloth. Spanning 40 feet, the biplanes wings are securely trust with the same type of wire used on the Brooklyn Bridge. That's right. Roebling wire. Two spruce propellers are a fix just behind the wings, while the motor powering them is located on the bottom wing, just off center right to counterbalance a piloting Wright brothers body weight as he lies next to it just off center left. And as the afternoon comes, the boys find themselves content with their last adjustments. It's time to test it out. With the help of John T Daniels and two other locals, will and or have moved their over 600 pound flying machine on skids more than a quarter mile. It's a big kill devil hill. The next get the aircraft on their 60 foot launching track, then start the engine. Curious, but now terrified local boys run off as it roars to life. Finally, it's time to decide who gets to make this historic flight and the fairest way possible. A coin toss. Big brother Wilbur wins. He lies prone in the pilot's position. His hips rest in a cradle that allows him to warp the wings by swaying his body as he also grips a bar before him that controls the forward router or elevator. And finally, he's off. We'll shoot down the track and ride into the air, but just as he gets off the ground, he overcorrects his ascent. Almost immediately, he slams hard into the sandy earth, only 100 feet from the launching track. Hardly a sustained or controlled flight, and repairs will be needed, yet the brothers are overcome with joy. This was a user error. They know that. And after some minor repairs, they're sure they've got this. It's now December 17th. A cold winter's morning at kitty hawk. And once again, John Daniels and a couple other locals have helped the Wright brothers get their flying machine into place on big hill. The engines engaged. It starts warming. Since will had his chance three days ago, it's orf, who takes the prone pilot position. And at ten 35 a.m., he starts down the track. A headwind slows him down, but at the tracks end, he launches into the air. It's choppy, wavy, but orfs in control. The gas engine powers the propellers pushing the heavy machine with such force it can sustain lift. That's it. They've done it. And John Daniels even manages to use a camera for the first time in his life to snap a photo of the plane in air. It's only 120 feet and lasts a mere 12 seconds. But orbes flight was powered, controlled, and sustained. As are that afternoon's three increasingly farther and longer lasting flights, the last of which is 59

A little bit close to where I am only a couple hours. Ruth Ann. Thank you for joining us with and go right ahead. Hi. I was notified yesterday by email that somebody in our ballroom dance group that teaches dance will not let me take the lessons because I haven't had this. Shot. The biggest disappointment on this lockdown for me was I love to dance. It was my only outlet when I took care of an elderly parents. Then I believe we were born to dance. And it's a celebration and ballroom dance is so elegant and I'm just really grieve. That I have been dancing with these people for 30 years if I haven't made them sick by now, I hardly doubt if I'm going to start And I just see my freedom taken away, You know, right up front and personal. So tell me why you have chosen not to get the vaccine with them. Because I watched shot in the dark by Dr Sherry 10 Penny, and it changes your DNA, and it's made from aborted babies. And if the shot so wonderful, why are we were in mass? Why are we distancing? And why do we need boosters? I've had the measles shot. The chicken pox shot the rubella. All those shots. I never needed a mask and I never needed a booster and I don't see how people cannot have the common sense to see this and Uh, What's that idiot's name? The one? That's our doctor. Whatever his name, But he said back in, uh, February. That it was going to get worse in September. How does he know that Only God knows what's going to happen in September from February? So, um, it I just have too much common sense to believe this. We were all going to die from the mad cow disease and poof. It went away and it went away because they were putting rape seed in the cow feed, But nobody investigated. They just took it and made it sound like the world presenting. Well, here's the question I would have earth and for your dance partners and your people in your in your dance group or club or troop or whatever they're called. I would ask them. Are you all vaccinated? And if you are, why do you care if I am. The vaccine is supposed to be life saving. The vaccine is supposed to minimize symptoms. So if you have it And you have the vaccine man. And Ruth Ann does not. Why are you afraid to dance with Ruth? And what's the worst that can happen? She could give you something that you say won't hurt you because you have the vaccine. Why are the vaccinated afraid of the unvaccinated if the vaccine in fact is effective? And the reality is it's not effective, which is why they're pushing boosters already, and you better accept the fact that this is endemic and it's going to be with us forever. How do you choose to live free?.
How Far Can a Plane Glide Without Engines?
"In nineteen eighty three a perfect storm of technical issues and unit conversion mistakes left an air canada boeing seven sixty seven without fuel. Some forty one thousand feet. That's twelve thousand. Five hundred meters over central canada before long. It lost power to both engines after descending rate of twenty five hundred feet. That's seven hundred sixty meters per minute. The pilots were able to glide their boeing all the way to save albeit bumpy landing on a race car track. The pilots were hailed heroes and the airplane was dubbed the gimli glider after the town where it landed essentially any plane can glide if the need arises and in situations where all the engines have failed. Pilots have to expect the plane to do some gliding. Without the thrust those engines are built to provide. The plane can't help but lose altitude but how far can a plane glide when it's not designed to be a glider aircrafts whose engines conch out at higher elevations can glide for longer periods of time. This is one of the reasons. Why shellenberger and skulls hudson river landing was so impressive. They had to glide their way to safety and a matter of minutes from a pretty low altitude. Everything happened very fast on. Us airways flight forty nine fifty one. The plane hit the birds within two minutes of taking off and just three minutes later. The plane was in the hudson river. Obviously planes come in all shapes and sizes. So if you're flying one it's important to know your vehicles. Best glide speed in a nutshell. This is the speed that will let your airplane travel the farthest distance while sacrificing the least amount of altitude. A related concept is the minimum sink speed or the pace of travel that will maximize how much time you can spend gliding depending on your situation. You may choose to prioritize time over distance or vice versa

Atc better identify gliders flying near busy airspace and landing at towered airports increasing safety in airspace system it would also allow glider pilots to operate using one code rather than having to change codes and flight which can be difficult to do on a compact transponder and in a cramped cockpit

The Australian eSafety Commissioner On Protecting Us And Our Kids Online
"Hello and we'll continue my security. Tv and al taking sick. Weekly this out. Tuesday afternoon episode. Is chris coverage on the director with security media and today with joined by jimmy inland gras. The safety commissioner. Which is the australian office of the commissioner at discussing online safety and public awareness international trains and safety by design. We do appreciate julie's time. This is a wake following site. That incident is so get a wrap up of what we do on free dies. Well what julie did. She did a lot more than what we did. But we tried our best and without further ado. We'll bring in julia emigrant a site. Commissioner julie. thanks for joining us. Thank you so much for having me and thank you for getting involved in safer n that day last week. Yeah look we we. Our best in did reach out to try and get you on on the actual david. Maybe tell us about the die is well like you. Everywhere you tycoon. Various strategies tv channels on the day that you had a little guy. It was great. We've continued to really gather some really important momentum and what was really important for us to bring the whole broader community along so we have three thousand organizations that officially signed up. And i think a lot more than engaged and it celebrated in one hundred seventy countries and due to the time zones we in new zealand together kind of set the tone for the whole day. And you know i guess ten to punch above our weight in terms of what we do so Here we we had a sub theme beyond better internet Which was start the chat. Because we think it's really important that we're actually giving all of our citizens Some actionable things that they can do And certainly we focused around a couple of different deliverables this year and the first was the release of some of our research around the digital lives of ozzy teams But then we also released two new novel resources on one was a picture book about swish glide and rule number. Five there little australians. Sugar gliders that. Tom you know dealt with issues with tablets in in the woods and we had jimmy reits rebe read the book for us and he was fantastic. We also have a my family rule song by lala who's another children's entertainer And i found it Almost more infectious than baby shark or fruit salad yummy yummy by time it catches on and we hope that mothers and fathers around australia will forgive us for that. But i of course what i think drove a lot of Coverage in the interest was the research around them to. Jill lives of ozzy teens. And there were some pretty concerning findings in there certainly Now we were talking to teams themselves and so you can take this with a grain of salt but they told us they spend an average of two hours a day online but they are using up to four different social media sites at any one time and then forty percent told us that it made had at least one negative online experience in the past six months between march and september so really during the lockdown and the most concerning stout of course is that one in three had had a stranger contact them online. And that's up from one in four back in two thousand seventeen. Did our broader national. You survey there were other unwanted experiences. They were having To antenne had unsolicited Images whether they be Horn graphic images or a violent extremism content sent to them stops that they can't see stuff that they told us very distressing so that that wasn't great news updates Combative full them. It's it can be combative Even just monitoring a twitter fate. It can be Interesting rating at of the least amongst professionals that line. What it's like. And one of the things i wanted to read chapter in terms of things like hong gaming platforms Sort of made some comments around. That is well one of the key things on on this Fame was online safety and public awareness and maybe public around that cohort of teenagers. How how prepaid by when the coming online do you think by outside compared to five years ago. Do you think these is high. And it's time to start to engage in that conversation with a a young a to decide. You're going to say some things that you need to be able to company and comfortable to come talk to us about his parents so you heavy heavy find that developing no spoke with a very good observation because one of the things that we've seen in terms of engaging with young people but also through this research is particularly after a young person has an aide negative experience online. They're developing empathy and they wanted to have more information about how to stay stay safe online and keep their friends online now a concern of ours for a long time is that the vast majority of young people out there will not tell a trusted adult when something goes wrong online almost fifty percent An yeah that's not surprising. When we we get to our teenage years we're trying to establish Dependence from our parents. I'm a i'm sure. A lot of kids are concerned about device them or getting in trouble. They may feel bit of shame but they also told us they don't talk to a trusted adult because they don't think It'll be taken seriously. There is anything that can be done. you know of course. A lot of teenagers are morfey with technology than Of adults but i think what we need to get across to young people and again. This is why the start. The chat theme was so poignant so important here is that we as adults do have the judgment maturity and life experience to be able to help kids know. Solve a range of problems problems whether it's reporting to the platform or reporting to safety but it's important that we start the conversations early and often. It's never too early on. Its particularly not too early given that we know that forty two percent of australian two year olds have some kind of access to a digital device usually through entertainment by the time. They're four years old. It's up to ninety four percent.

Just done incredible. Incredible things in -ccomplish our dreams in the sport. He still just looks like a kid after landing after sled ride. He's totally overjoyed. And that's one of the things that that. I think i really picked up on. There is this is supposed to be fine. This is just. This is incredible. It's it allows us to do things that were previously in our dreams and keeping that in mind as always really important and he would always had this thing. where if it's safe to fly then fly. Don't don't talk yourself out at the ill. It's not looking that great today. I mean if you were there and fly in and safe to do so then then do it. And what that means to different people's obviously relative to to their own safety considerations but again just trying to fly as much as possible and the other element with bruce is that he i mean he's clearly very analytical in his own right. But there's this taps into this arm the black arts side of the sport to And you can see it in just the way flies away talks about five the things that he's picking up on that. I'm glad that that we would be able to have those conversations because then you know the way he would look at certain clouds certain birds or just ruffle of a certain tree. I picked up on. But i wouldn't have picked up on them without kind of pointing them out And in his relationship with tear. I was there shortly after Will not surely kind of like a year after tears accident so i was there for his rehab in when he started kind of getting back in the saddle. And you can tell. The tears been around paragliding his whole life because he got back into the saddle just went into this. This really technical cross country right off the bat and lands. He's like yeah that's.

"Kind of a common thing that pilots would talk about you know and now it seems like there. There are definitely misses at the ccc end. Because the you're talking half a one percent that enemies. They've just they've got to go or they just don't compete so that's just more really more speed but You know and people will learn how to deal with the handling of of anything at that level if they can get a little bit more performance but in the main in the wider range of gliders that most people fly you know aide de there there seems to be everybody's making good wings. Yeah i think your point that. I was pretty fortunate to come into the sport at a time where it seemed that the job stats where things were gearing towards. And i've had the chance to fly a variety of wings. Mostly in the i've i've had the chance to sample a few sees specifically the cure to i think with. Bg a couple of other ones. And i think what i've found is that on the object again like back to the objective tangible things i had to your point i have a hard time saying that. Like food this weighing. That's just a death trap. I never wanna go near that thing. No i mean there. They all seem to hit those marks and again the differences that i found her. Just the subjective thing like oh this wing seems to go great but the handling to me is is a little dull or maybe. It's too livelier. Those more subjective elements and. That's where i think it's just important to try different wings and find what works for you. Do you credit this year. All the manufacturers making pretty solid wings is that is that because the software and the kind of The engineering side has has caught up with these designers. Wild plans in and dreams as is the mash just gotten the they've gotten more synergistic between the two..

"Of an industry project that we have to do for the 'aeronautics program at the university that i was studying in That was enrolled at in stockholm. And the professor. There was a sailplane pilot. So when i got to talk to him about paragliding he suggested that i try to find this project in the paragliding industry which led me to going to the twenty eighteen. Could be car with a cb and and an idea to pitch. And that's why linked. Up with with bruce and with tom. Lewis is co designer and the rest of the rnd team. We talked it over and we came to this agreement that fit what they needed and with the university needed. And that was the start of this of this really exciting project and you sent me the project which is not exactly layman's terms for me. But it describe what the project is you know. Give us the brief on that. What what was it. Yeah so the project. Set aside of development which gears towards helping designers create virtual prototypes. And what i mean by that is that designers and we'll talk a little bit about this episode of balance but designers have these tools that currently are more akin to f s. I put it in his podcast kind of a designers pencil right. So let's them draw out the geometry that they're that they're intending to create the shape of the glider the shape of the canopy the line placements but the software doesn't really tell them all that much. About how the gliders going to behave or even whether the glide is gonna look that way so dumb. Nowadays is working on this incredible structural simulation program which resolves the actual the of the canopy ones. There's aerodynamics involved. Once the gliders loaded. And what i did was create a software that takes that and then runs a series of analysis on them to then give some feedback on. How the gliders going to perform and how the gliders going to behave in pitch specifically at the start of the project we really wanted to do all degrees of freedom so we wanted to have role included but really in six months we realized just getting pitched alone was was a six month project. So that's what my thesis was was gearing towards i love. He pointed out in your in your thesis that it's kinda cool combination between science and craft.

Qna and a a show where he aunts ask me questions. And i asked him so on his development and coming up in a few weeks and he also after looking at the survey responses thought. Hey you know you should drop in a tip or two to the front of every show. Because i i'm getting proper. Buried in requests and information questions both just directly via email and also in that survey we got a ton of them and i realized just how hard it's going to be to cover all these questions in talks with the guest that kinda range all over the place so these are going to be real specific topics and you know how to climb better. And we'll just drop it into the front of every show from now on and you let us know if you like that so either going to do this by myself or we're going to do with guest today i've got my good friend. Bianca heinrich who has been Rayson with eduardo on the alps and flying together a lot over the years and she was just involved in an incident and had some thoughts on making sure that we're covered. This is something that i've been harping for years. But a lot of people still travel and it just doesn't take high priority and then something happens and it becomes a real cluster so this this is something that we really need to take on as a community to make sure we have the appropriate shirts and appropriate medevac and get home insurance so it's doesn't become something our community.

Interview With Fighter Pilot Rochelle Kimbrell
"I'm joined today by rochelle kimbrell. She was the first african american female fighter pilot in the united states. air force. well that's really cool rachelle. Thank you for being with us today. Absolutely thanks for having me your welcome so now tell us tell us how you cut your start in aviation started aviation. I took my first lesson when i was fourteen years old. I was just very fascinated on by flight. Invite space when i was in kindergarten. I wanted to be an astronaut. And i wrote a way to nasa. Find out what it takes to be an astronaut the on my double lines crayon paper and they sent me back a huge pack. That stayed in my room for most of my most of my life. the just kind of walked us through how you become an astronaut about fourth grade. I realized as i was still learning about it. Because i was fascinated that All astronauts don't get to go to space and that was a little bit Concerning to me. Because i wanted to do something where i would actually get to do it every day so i kind of lucked into the next best thing would be flying jets so reverse engineered my life to figure out how i could do that. So i got my first lesson at fourteen and And had my license. By the time. I was seventeen and just absolutely fell in love with the idea at first but then the actual acts of. Why did you pursue getting and all that before you went to the economy. I did not so being a little bit funds limited. You know. I did what i could so it took me a while to get through the steps. We kind of took lessons when there was money to take lessons. joined the civil air patrol with intentions of Being part of the flying program there that they efforts but ended up kind of falling into the cadet activity side and doing a lot more fit activities than actually fine. And then pursuing my pilot's license on on land. And i assume you seen gliders at dakota me also i did a little bit I didn't do the whole program. I did basically what we were required to do. And then i was focusing a little bit more on the hill. And what What was your major. I ended up with a general engineering. Major okay. I started with but that's where i ended up. Well you started out with. What astro engineering mechanic. Oh okay so now. Did you go right to the training or did you have to do something else before they had a slot for you right. The pilot training Basically right after sixty days of leave in august of ninety eight. I started pilot training and you went to laughlin right i did. I went to doria by the see. So how did you do in pilot training. you know. that's a funny question. Most people know their rankings and how they came out. I'm not really sure was never told. I don't know obviously i did well up to get next to keep right but for some reason you know now as i'm older people number two number why i have no idea really so now. This timeframe was nike and ninety eight time frame. So there are a lot of women in piloting. At that time i went. Say a lot but we have larger class of women but they all went t- ones and my helicopters And i can't even tell you. I'd have to look at the picture but i think that there were six or seven of us and our thoughts and you selected the efficiency of sixteen. And where did you go to to rt for sixteen force based on. Okay and what was your first assignment i went to miss. Our japan gets chilly in the winter. There was awesome. Great snow greek snowboarding in place to station

"Master chief coming four. It certainly seems so yesterday The item shop started to leak four. I often that while we were live yesterday. Cradles credos teaser. Images came in hot and heavy showing the greatest coming to fort seems to be one hundred percent true. I then made the prediction. That a game awards they would come out and the four hundred announcement would be house. Chief in sama's all being announced for fortnight This morning actually. Late last night New starting to break again. We are on hype x. Right now we'll be getting a halo co lab to if it's not scrapped. The skin is going to be master. Chief kevin if you click on it you click on capitol get a little bit bigger. I you can see. We have of course master chief there as the character. His glider is the pelican. Does that get you excited. They're all yet. It is a little hog there for when you must there. And then yeah. He's got his What gravity gravity hammer hammer. Sorry it's very pixelated pickaxe. Kevin if you want to go to the next one. This is four might have started it. What's the deal with the little word hug. Like when would. I think that's an email this little dance. You see how it's got little dance. I kind of I love it. Yeah that's really kooks that fortnite battle royale leaks. Twitter are the people who put this. Initially i think this is what barrett show shared last night in our for channel They say here's some images that halo cosmetics. These are confirmed to be real so again. Take it with a grain of salt as hypoc says it's not scrapped. This is what this looks like. One hundred percent believe it. I think this is all going to be a game. Awards announcement tim. Where's your head at the game stuff is the one thing i'm not totally locked in on. They haven't actually fully announced this to me that because that was about to say like why would they hold off one when they'd been announcing him so anybody that has been officially adopt. Or is that still. Okay okay. gotcha then. Yeah that that does make a lot of sense what's interesting about. This is stick into the salmon's theory because the in multiple ways sammy's is one of these things. It's not like the other when you have chief crato and sama's like if it was chief and sam is that kind of makes sense but it puts kind of a different level where like it should be. Mario you know as like the face of the company type conversation hold that it goes back to you i. i'm out. I'm totally outside of this ship. You guys are like all about this fortnight that's a fortnight household include. Joey she's freaking out and we're hanging out. She's trying to explain to me. She's like oh shit like man. Lloyd theory is it's bounty hunters and my first reaction was sarah. So it's i think there's multiple things leading to to sammy's even if it's not just the big three. The bigger question is doesn't intend to play nice because intendo go nintendo. That is the big question. And i think that that is. What's so fascinating to see. Is that yeah. It's a bounty hunter. Sees and talk about these hunters. They're doing all these different things. I think you can make a case for obviously not bounty hunter but in a different way cradles being hunter. Obviously she's being hunter and then for salmon. A bounty hunter is nintendo down to share this stuff in a crossover co lab. Are they down to have her running around with an ar shooting other people like roof. Yeah i don't know. I think honestly i. That's the one on the weakest on that. I think that they're standing in the way then. Is it just going to be crato in master chief coming together to or coming at each other to fight in the trailer or whatever for the announcement because what i'd like to throw in here. I mentioned this yesterday. That during a jesmyn doing zoom calls for the game awards right. He's been bringing on guests he brought on donald mustard of course the big for fortnight that you see every year of the game wards talking about it in donald's it something to this is gonna be a huge deal at the game awards for fortnight What i did hear a quick google. I'm looking at. I fire monkey. Who put all this together on their twitter and says in a recent zoom call with jeff key lean donald mustard. A few hints have been revealed about the future fortnight. This info comes from a source. Who would like to remain anonymous harvard. Credible rationing who's on the call. There will be an announcement at the game wars for fortnight The game wars will take place in two separate tenth. A new recording session with troy baker took place. That's already happened. 'cause we know that stuff right This season is the biggest event they've ever done and it will change the future of fortnight when asked about getting more when asked about getting items smash brothers universe donald muster simply stated. He can't comment about it. One of the things. I brought up yesterday. A loose manner was this. The quote of this is the biggest event they've ever done and it will change feature a fortnight. I think when you hear that coming off the back of the marvel season somebody who. I love playing the marble season at the end. We all were super into me. Barrick have a blessed joey. Roger who kevin keeps dragging into these things even though he i don't like him being on our stuff all right. I'll say it. He's a part time editor. He doesn't deserve to be around as much as i mean. He's killing bats. The one reason. I'll let it keep happening right. Keeps me alive. Say this on a need.
How The Flying Fahans Got Started In Aviation
"I'm joined today by very famous. Couple job the margaret and joe fan who were delta pilots flew together numerous times and they retired together. It is so great having you with us today. Thanks for taking the time. It's nice to be here. thanks for talking with us. You're welcome so so. Who is flying the longest. I'm older by about four years. Okay so we'll start with you joe. How did you get your start in aviation you know. I wanted to be a pilot since i was a little kid. And when i got to be about fifteen. I started getting my parents to drop me off the local airport and eventually got a job as a line boy there and spend all my money taking lessons. There's just that simple so back. Then how much did it cost to take lessons. Well kids today are going to hate me for saying this. I flew a brand new one. Seventy two with an instructor for twenty dollars. An hour into european itself was fourteen dollars an hour. The instructor was six and it was a struggle back. Then because i'm making that dollars seventy five bucks an hour whatever. The minimum wage was then. So you know it's it's increased by about tenfold. Since since i did that but there people people paying over two hundred dollars an hour for a general aviation airplane with instructor. My private pilot licence cost me all eight hundred dollars. Well that's were great. How about you. How did you get your story. Well my mom and dad are from germany and we used to fly to germany every summer to visit family so for me the best part of the vacation was actually the flight and i just know i had to do something with airplanes later on in life and When i was sixteen. I was dating a boy that my dad wasn't particularly fond of so he thought my dad had flown gliders in world war two at the end of the war so he thought if margaret had a hobby maybe she spend less time with boyfriend and more time with the hobbies so he took me to the glider airport in the area and He got reso- load. And i started flying taking lessons and it just took off from there that is very cool so interesting parroting those is really good parent yes. He has a better story than i do off. So so joe. Did you start earning money right away after you got your license. Well private commercial instrument. And then i became a flight instructor and i was teaching for a couple years. I guess that's my first paid flying job and college was in there too taught in college and then got your later. I got hired by a little commuter airline in southern new jersey southern jersey airways honors for five years or so and seven for almost a year and went on with the airlines so that was kind of a straight shot so when you interviewed with delta did they have the shrink with a rocking chair. Well actually we're. We didn't come that way. We were a northwest pilots. Oh okay all right actually. Yeah we required. Margaret margaret was actually a pilot for republic airlines and i was a pilot for northwest so we merged as choir twice. She was margaret. Tell us about how you got Started getting paid to fly well. Once i started taking lessons at all i wanted to do was be at the airport. Talk to people at the airport. You learn all. I could so i started working out there. I worked at the office. And then i worked on the line to Being that it was a glider airport. There were several line called them lined boys but there were lying girls. You had to hook up the toro to the glider and then run the wing as the toll. Plane drag glider off. So i did whatever. I could to You help pay for lessons and back then you got to know the instructors. So you traded washing their cars for instruction you've got a cheaper rate on the glider rental Got a little discount of the toe. So as soon as i could i started flying and earning money to pay for lessons. Surely you a glider rating before you got a power rating. Yes you could back then solo. I think it was fifteen. Get your license at sixteen in glider. So you could get your commercial glider license that eighteen and you could give rides and you know what we call the introductory lessons. I got my flight instructor. Rating is flight instructed in gliders before i got my private airplane well that is very cool and never flown gliders but i understand that that's the best way to learn to fly. Start with gliders. I think so i think so. You're tells me that all the time
Ashli Blain - Firefighting Helicopter Co-Pilot - on the Knowledge Gap Between Helicopters and Fixed Wing
"Tuchus tuchus through others. There's you know there's certainly A lot of pilots in our audience. And certainly some of them are helicopter pilots. But i would venture to guess that a lot of them are are fixing only So stepsister what that's what what that's you. Obviously you started fixed wing gliders but you got helicopters new around the very early. what's that training progression like Yeah it was honestly kind of kind of simultaneous You know kind of my pursuit for my private fixing helicopters. I was working on the both my student certificate and both when i was sixteen And to be honest it just happened. Very quickly It it was kind of a you know. I guess i never really differentiated the to To any like extreme it was always very much you know i had both skill sets. I guess you could say So it wasn't as difficult. I would say for me to transition into helicopters as it might be for another person. Who's more fixed wing Just in the sense that i was doing both at the same time so there was never a really big knowledge gap between the two. That's really interesting so you say there was. There was no knowledge gap. But did you ever. I don't wanna put it simply say well. Did you ever forget which one you're in but did you find that of. Did you have muscle memory or something that That that tauzin challenges as you were jumping back and forth I would say the biggest thing was I remember my dad copy. One time he was just working with me on auto rotations around the time he did this he just did a simulated engine failure and a helicopter And we were in cruise. So you know you want to pull back a little bit loose mayor speed and obviously Kind of opposite reaction for an airplane in the sense that Oftentimes you wanna get your nose down. So i would say that's probably the biggest one for me Also when i did my private helicopter A check airman actually commented that he could tell. I was an airplane persons. I she tale drivers Because of how much. I use my pedal so i don't know if that's an insult or a compliment but i'm thinking in. I think we should all take it as a compliment. Though the fact that that somebody looks at you and says that they can tell. You flew taylor's because you're at least used to using your feet actively that peace will always be to me always be compliment. Yeah yep exactly so No i think. That's about the only difference. Like i said i think you know It would be harder transition if i was just strictly airplanes for a very long time but doing both at the same time made it a lot easier. I didn't have a whole lot of habits. That were early Ingrained in me from one or the other. So i think it makes slopping mccain ear well and i don't want to keep harping on this but kidding aside you were doing these things at an age when you're you're really really well suited to learning all sorts of new things and and my gosh. It's it is. It is amazing to to look at the the the ratings and the experience that you've amassed in such a short time and and thinking about how those things they're going to be with you with you forever and you know you've you've accomplished you know before you turn twenty of accomplished what could be a career for a lot of pilots.
Hailing the Air Taxi: Secretive Joby Aviation's new electric vertical-takeoff-and-landing aircraft
"Tell us about your trip. Over fires I understand to to get to this. Secret Jobe test. Rain what you saw. Yeah thanks Joe will I've gotta say it was the story in terms of getting the story You briefly mentioned the the fire situation it all happened in the middle of the first big wave really of of wildfires out in California and my initial flights to the San Francisco Bay area, which is really where Jobe is based overall was through a dense clouds of smoke In both directions we had to wear face masks, of course, a part of the covert protocol but we ended up wearing three facemasks. He showed the flight back because otherwise we couldn't have we couldn't breathe in the smoke. So it was the the second flight that I took me onto their sort of undisclosed test area, which was even more interesting because that day. Having. Got To this location and then drove from for many miles into the secure facility came around the corner and they're hiding away. This valley was a small, very unusual looking hell not a helicopter, not not a fixed wing aircraft either this little like a strange hybrid between the two and that's that's the whole point about this new generation. It's something which we're still trying to really figure out as as well as the FAA I think what it is dealing with it, but it was fascinating experience. I showed up it was a really hot afternoon They basically were all poised waiting for me to get there since the dead they had the the vehicle on this little test area in the valley right in front of me a few hundred yards away they and that's the thing. The other thing about electric vehicles is you just turn them on. You know there's no sort of like. Slow. Wind up of a turbine or a piston foreing up it's just flick the switch and the lights come on you flick another switch and it lifts up into the into the air on a was what it was like the the sound which I couldn't wait to hear was so interested to know what it was going to be like eventually when the sun came to me, I was hoping. that it would be different than it was because I had expected something like one of those quad copters where you hear that sort. Of. Sound of the electric motors and ready sort of drums that sort of sound and but it didn't it was much low freak lower frequency sound very lower intensity. San Than expected. Vehicle took off and performed some maneuvers that are sort of relatively low altitude and the whole time I was standing beside. Justin Paints the chief test pilot and we were just chatting in a normal voice. Right it was right aside in beside us, it went off down the valley did some maneuvering. And? Transit didn't fully transitioned to wing bond fly because the valley area isn't that large. But it did become debt fatty fast as it maneuvered across in front of us and and landed and. that it was a remarkably quiet experience when the vehicle was down to the other end of the valley not too far away I mean just a few hundred yards You could hardly hear it above the background noise of of the of the INNOVA around the valley. So I think it would be effectively quite silent in an urban environment. They do say also that in forward in wing borne flight, it will also be effectively silent because The big thing about this design is it is it is a sensor they describe as a powered glider. It's like a like a motor glider really that can take off and land vertically. So it's just a very different way of looking at it. I think. It certainly looks very different. You know you think of a helicopter this has has more the wingspan of small aircraft. Yes exactly. Yeah. Incentive size. It's just a little bit short a wingspan than a embraer phenom one, hundred they they small business jared. An linked it's only just over twenty twenty, one feet body length of fears large with a little bit of overhang with the the the props at the back. But essentially, it's a very small package a footprint that's really designed to essentially go where helicopter like an forty four would fed. So that's the principle is that you're packaging this around six electric power unit. So EPA US, they call them and in a sort of a an oval shape which gives you a nice sort of equal area of left on each side and. Essentially redundancy it case one of those systems fails you've always got five others. One would power down the other forward power up to keep your balanced It's just a the so many layers of redundancy that are built into this design that you know sort of goes to the fact that. Job has really put safety as the absolutely leading design principle for this having actually figured out how to make it a vehicle fly one, hundred, fifty nautical miles. At about one, hundred, seventy five points and do it in such a way that you can recharge between between missions even at that length in a short time. So it's a the so many areas to look at.
The Pixel 4a is coming
"We just had soon are on the show. Was it two months ago? And we're like what's up pixels and he like we gotta make him. Good. Did he make him good. I mean he made he made one one. Good. So the Pixel for a has been announced and released viewed it bunch of a tear. Actually, the podcast of used one but because the Pixel for is late and we can talk about why it is really close to when we're assuming the pixel five is gonNA come out. So Google is like you know what? Yeah, we're making a pixel five. It'll be out here this fall also there's GonNa be a pixel for a five G. 'cause you know that's what you want. So they just announced all three phones at once just Bam per year of you reviewed the. We've not seen photos of the five. We have seen various and confusing leaks all summer and Chris you might actually have a better handle around this afar but a bunch of the early leaks for like this must be the pixel five. Am It's like well, no, there's actually the probably the pixel for five G. now, and then there's more yet more internal documents, even more pixels at a foldable pixel like later on down the line like it's a fiasco in Pixel rumor land. Super. Confusing I mean they had that league. I think it was last month there was a phone. It looks just like the four day but they said it was the five and people weren't sure. But then it seems like they might get rid of their face ID clone which I really actually liked on the pixel of four like to just walk away from that the thumb reader but I mean, yeah, no one's really quite sure it's going to look like even the four five G. might have new specs or a bigger screen or who knows who knows what the story is I mean it's there's there's just always confusion about what's GonNa Happen is GonNa have brightly colored plastic rectangle smug s Yes The four as a decidedly, not brightly colored plastic rectangle. Four, you reviewed it. So the big big new innovation in the Pixel Foray is they dropped fifty bucks off the price. So it to three hundred, fifty dollars, which is. Pretty big. It's a pretty big deal It's a hundred bucks less than these storage equivalent iphone se. To get one I WANNA see one, hundred, twenty, eight gigs and they just like. Got Everything as good as you can probably get it on a three hundred, fifty dollar phone like I. Wish it had a faster processor but we live in a world of android where qualcomm. If you want to get a good qualcomm processor, you gotta spend way too much money. So I got like, okay one that's got a pretty solid screen. It's it's got a hole punch. It's got the Pixel camera a Becca actually pointed out to me when we were talking to them, she asked if it had was the sensor Becca three sixty three. Yeah. Same Sensor as. The Pixel four and the Pixel three and the Pixel three they've been using literally like the exact same camera stack for like two years now. So it's great. It makes takes rate photos but they haven't pushed it much. I would love it. If you could select your software tuning on the Pixel who right if you buy a pixel for and like make this shit, look like the Pixel two that would make me very happy because I thought the Pixel two looked it was the most contrast in the most dramatic and they have veered towards looking more like the overtime. But I wish. I. Could just be like go back to that look I love that look the best because if they're using the same hardware, they should give you the choices software, right? Everyone is just looking at me like. I mean it's like it's like saying you should just get your choice of. Clutch on your Mustang like it gets tied. The thing. Okay. Versus automatic. Put Your Ninety seven clutch in Twenty fifteen I mean you don't WanNa do that but you can be retune in anyway. Keep going the pixel for we're not gonNA talk about mustangs fingerprint sensor on the back. It works great. It's got a headphone Jack. because. Apparently low and phones are the only phone's headphone Jacks Anymore Beca you holding one right now you're holding. I'm holding one right now and what I'll have to say about this is that I love this thing like it gave me everything I like about phones in twenty twenty like a big screen and it's slim and the batteries diesen but it kept the things that I also love about previous cones that I love a fingerprint sensor like a one on the back and I love a headphone Jack and I love the Pixel camera in its three hundred and fifty dollars, which is a pretty good pricing twenty twenty for a brand new phone. There's this. There's this meme out there. For him but like there's this idea out there that like Google was bored with android in the pixels reflection of its board on this phone feel like they're bored with it. Now I'm bored with Andrew. Debut. The one new features accessibility feature for software a IT'll do real time captioning phone calls but it doesn't record them and it doesn't put them on the Internet. So don't have your conspiracy theories thrown at me Breitbart. They wrote it up terribly anyway So that's like the one thing but that's coming other pixels. It's just like Google. So committed to keeping the pixel software like really clean and basic relative to the madness that happens on every other android phone that it can feel a little bit boring and their decision to be really like understated with their design. I think it's like they've got they've. got a little bit too far. It's been like, no, no this is this is the the android phone that isn't flashy. It's just like a phone and after a while like that message gets through that like. Made a phone. Okay. Like they want it to be utilitarian to the point where it's like become a little bit boring. Thank you. Go. Has has been so long burned by Sergey Brin. Coming into Google glass event. On a hang glider. That's a real thing that happened they. US In like one of the founders landed on sage on a hang glider glass is the future and that was their last big attempt to be splashy. In it completely backfired like in every possible way
How Long Can Andean Condors Fly Without Flapping Their Wings
"Imagine your average three-year-old human child something around three feet or a meter tall probably covered in jam a now imagine that child trying to get off the ground with a pair of wings bid have to be pretty big wings. Welcome to the plight of the Indian condor species name Volt Hor griffiths the heaviest flying bird in the world. Weighing in at up to thirty three pounds or fifteen kilos, they keep their heavy bodies in the air with some of the longest wings in the world there wingspan can range over ten feet long that's over three meters. There are only a handful of birds carnally living on our planet have larger wings spans, and they're all pelagics, birds, a plastic birds being seabirds that soar over the open ocean for weeks at a time, such as fast petrels and sheer waters. As far as we know, the largest brand ever fly was the Pella. Gorna Sanders C., which lived twenty five to twenty, eight million years ago and was twice as large as the biggest bird living today with a wingspan of twenty four feet over seven meters. Seabirds can accomplish this. Thanks in part to the literally uplifting winds that flow over oceans the Indian condor. Mostly relies on updrafts high in the Andes mountains across much of Western, south. America. The problem with being such a huge bird is that it makes getting off the ground or even flapping those giant wings and flight a bit of an ordeal. Soaring is easy once they're up in the sky and that's mainly what Andean condors do they just float like hang gliders in the air currents sometimes serving the ground for dead animals to eat as a scavenger and sometimes just having an APP. But this means that taking off is the most costly part of the birds overall energy supply. Scientists have always known that they spend very little time flapping their wings but a study published in July of twenty. Twenty and the proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found the Andean condors flap, their wings, a sum total of almost never. Not, only to the researchers find colossal birds, flap their wings one percent of their total flight time they discovered a bird could fly for five hours and more than one hundred miles or one hundred, fifty kilometers without flapping them once. The research team found that weather didn't affect how much flapping the condors were doing. Study Co author Hannah Williams a postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Animal Behavior said in a press release. This suggests that decisions about when and where to land are crucial as not only do condor's need to be able to take off again but unnecessary landings will add significantly to their overall flight costs. All of which means that in Congress must understand how to use thermals, thermals being invisible patterns and bubbles of air moving all around in the atmosphere to their advantage, and they must understand this much better than scientists previously gave them credit for.
What Are You Plaing
"Let's begin with. We've been playing and I. Think we're all playing. Go Sashimi. Now. Justin. You started it. Seemed to have lost. Yeah, did start it I really like it, I'm the art direction that game. Gone. Back will not allow you back in my here. Realize yeah. I'm having a few Internet troubles today, so bear with me, please yeah I am playing ghosts That game is beautiful. My two favorite things are. Are Composing the high coups I think is really good, and and actually really like reflecting in the in the hot springs as well where it's like do I. WanNa reflect on my father or my uncle in the provides my character motivation to go out and Chop Mongols heads off. It's a very you saying this last week. Damon it's vague video. Gamey game It's very. It's not really you're exactly right about the last of us. It's not really each trying to break now to do a bunch of crazy new stuff, just trying to be a fun open world game feels like a game that sort of plucked from twenty fourteen, and dropped into twenty twenty, but with twenty twenty lake sorta visuals graphics. Yeah. I think that's accurate. I think could talk. You had an article yesterday where? They showed the Haiku that they wrote in their game to a real Haiku writer and they were not impressed. No! Yeah I misinterpreted that system by the way because I initially thought that. If you picked one sentence, it would, it would give you like it's totally separate option to trickle down towards that effect, and I just mess it up, and I ended up creating like a random Haiku by the end of were totally did not track with the system I thought it would be, but it was still a lovely by the end of it I thought. I were uses the game engine to like show. You something really beautiful. The like you just realize like how amazing that open world as you can see like. Oh, they set the time of day. They set the light right. And then it's like this trickling stream of water, and then like the sunset, and then like relieves rustling. The trees like those are just like open world shots. They're using their that. You just chose in real time. It's amazing. That's like one of the best examples of how you kill that world can be. Yeah, so I've been playing for like two weeks. I'm still I'm still enact one. So I don't know I. It's just a really really big game where. Sam where you guys. Also still enact one. The map is huge, and it gets bigger apparently, so yeah, there's a lot of game in this game. Yet I'm and three. Out Don't the. One like really obsessed with uncovering the map so I've been doing that a lot and then I like kind of go through the main class, but been playing so much I got this thing recently, which is really frustrating, it's it's a thing that you have to. Basically chain kills with. You cannot get hit, so it's like you. Could you know kill three enemies? Enemies, and then five minutes later killed four more enemies, or whatever, and then it's changed. You get to use this ability, but that's like the one thing that if you just slight interruption from like an Arrow off screen, our dog, biting your or whatever it screws it up, and for some reason, it's like all I think about now and so I have to like. Assessing over it, and and it doesn't even give that big of a reward, but it's something that really changed the way implying recently, which is funny, also manage the game. The way of playing is i. got the kick and the kickoff. Is You just kicked? Off like this and I love that so much. Yeah that's the best Are there a total of three acts or they're more? Castle Vania. It's like you do do do do do do do and then there's the boss, and then there's the next castle castle. And an are, they asked about similar length seemed like. Yeah and they're similar area sizes to the second man when you could just the second one like I was like I'll take some time to see like. How different can they make these maps 'cause? There's the first ones really varied. There's just a lot of environments in beauty to be had just wrote across it, and it took me thirty minutes. The second hour, That's off. It's crazy. Yeah, it's really really cool just to go out and explore. Yeah I love it. It's you know I like I said even though I've been playing for two weeks. Act One, but it might end up being my favorite game of the year so far so now mind, I'm having I'm having a the conversation A. Comparing it to the last great open world game that I played which is assassin's creed Odyssey, and I'm like well I don't know. I don't know which one I. Like better right now. I think. They both have really really beautiful world. I liked how you're traveling the season going to different islands on sesame street odyssey stealth mechanics are much more involved so i. don't know we'll see how it shakes out there. Then the other game I keep comparing it to my mind is breath of the wild because I really wish ghosts of Sashimi had a hang glider.
Duncan Hamilton: This Guy Won Le Man DRUNK
"Yeah. Man I just want a baby out of the way right now in no way. At all condoning. Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs or anything? Else Dude in your house. Have a good time. Stay stay off the streets. Drive in fours or Yet sure, go ahead. That being said. We all think that this is hilarious. Honestly, please do not drink and drive. Yeah, lot of senseless accidents and needless pain is caused because of it do not do it. So doing drive, we are not condoning drinking driving This is a hilarious story. We wanted to take a break from some of the heavier subjects that we've been covering recently seems like there's been a lot of deaths a lot of. Yeah we. From hells, angels, the most violent story I've ever read. Into Center, which is the most? It was both optimistic, but also heartbreaking story ever so the last two months now have been pretty taxing on the old mental health there, so we just wanted to have a little breather. Cool and we hope that you guys enjoy it. That being said Nolan Halloween jump into the story of James Drunken. Dunkin Hamilton yes, but before that. Let me just introduce welcome to pass gas everybody. You drive yeah. Yeah let me drive. I'm good. My name is known Sykes. I'm joined as always by my two co hosts and good friends James Humphrey. And Joe Ever. Fired Our baby more power maybe. Lightning. Let's get ending lightning. James Duncan House and was born on April Thirtieth nineteen twenty in Cork Ireland. At the age of six, he and his family moved to west London. Anyone who knew James or Dunkin as he would be known, would tell you how the only thing that complemented his colorful and outgoing personality was his extraordinary talent for most things he was just one of those guys, those good at everything. That's actually the case for most James's I have heard that just really good kissers playing guitar awesome at skateboarding. great drawers especially graffiti street art. Are you at the Grill? However have great grill master perfectly. Your meat game is pretty strong meat game strong although I. don't eat a lot of meat these days. Can you serve? In Surf, I can hang glider paraglider pretty much. Do all the glides I can heidrick lied. I know how to allied. Our The. Car Joke. This is a car podcast. Anyway Hamilton was sent to Brighton College at the age of thirteen. His father sent him to the Aeronautical School, which was in the next town over from where they lived. Dunkin tried to convince his parents that he needed a car, but they objected out of fear of him driving on the open road at age thirteen
A Close Call
"In August. Two Thousand Fifteen Steve Hill. Who had been John? Sharps crew chief and I went to restore the NEMESIS ANNEX T to flying condition. Sharps Reno Racer had been stored in a hangar. At the Mojave California airport that had been damaged holding the annexed t captive until the hangar doors. Were repaired. I was to relocate the annexed t to the Moriarty New Mexico Airport so that sharp could set some world speed records before retiring the aircraft to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum. Sharpen his wife Patricia. Designed and built the t around his six foot four frame and the rudder. Pedals were not adjustable even with cushions and bolsters. I was barely able to reach the rudder pedals. I was unable to perform a magneto check as the next. He slowly crept forward. During the run-up this of course was unacceptable. So I taxi back and inform sharp and the crew of my predicament hill. I returned to Moriarty to contemplate plan. B The annex t was subsequently flown to Moriarty where rudder pedal extensions were designed and installed on April twenty-seventh. Twenty seventeen I finally had a chance to fly the annex t since the winds were forecast to increase hill and I met at hills hanger early to get a leg up on the day and give me a chance to see how sharp's racer flew. The annex t has no forward visibility when being taxied so a lipstick camera was located on the right main landing gear in conjunction with a small video screen and the cockpit so the pilot could see ahead hill. Followed me out to runway two six to both assist and observe my flight. As soon as I applied power I was able to raise the tail on directional control was never an issue. I remained on the ground. Perhaps a bit longer than needed which may have been a function of the elevator. Trim position on lift off. The tee seemed very well behaved. I climbed out to the South West in order to get a better feel for how it behaved before returning to land. Although the aircraft was not unruly the air certainly was so I decided to cut the flight short and return to terra. Firma and aircraft incident or accident is almost never just one thing. It is a series of connected dots that when added up can lead to an untenable situation or worse the first dot manifested itself. Unbeknownst to me as I enter the downwind leg it had only been a few days before that I had flown the glider clubs Piper pointy tow plane. When doing so I would fly a close tight traffic pattern in hindsight. I should have flown a pattern commensurate with the speeds. I would be flying the Reno. Racer that is a one hundred fifty miles per hour on final and somewhat faster on downwind and base geared down to in the green and I started working to slow the next T- because my proximity to the final approach was far too close. I banked steeper as I watched myself fly through. Final DOT number two. I must have added a touch of bottom rudder dot number three at that point mortality Hubbard a watchful bird of prey. And the next thing I knew the next departed in a snapple. I would like to claim. It was superior airmanship skill and reflexes. That kept me from dying that day but I know better. My Guardian Angel was watching over me and only by the grace of God that I make the control inputs. That allowed me to recover at about two hundred feet or so Steve Hill was privy to all of the above and this is what he observed. The aircraft disappeared from my view and hearing to the West. After a few minutes I heard the aircraft approaching from the West and her bills radio call of left down wind for runway. Two six with gear. The aircraft appeared to me to be at a normal altitude. But maybe a little too close to the runway by this time the winds on the ground had picked up and we're gusting a little bit. The winds were mostly aligned with the runway but may have had a southern component. My perception was such that. I almost called bill on the radio. Remind Him to maintain one hundred and fifty miles per hour pattern speed. But I did not. I watched the aircraft perform a left turn from down wind base and the bank angle seemed a little steep to me. The aircraft continued at northerly heading with left-wing down at less than five hundred feet. Ag L. suddenly it appeared to snapple. All the way around and recover right I was looking into the morning sun and did not have an ideal view but I believe that the aircraft continued in a roll to the left. The maneuver happened extremely quickly. Literally in the blink of an eye. It happened so quickly that I was at that point. Not sure of what to make of it. All only that I was in a descending attitude on northbound heading and then if I did not initiate a pull up I would be making ground contact with ample speed in hand about one hundred and seventy or so. I started climbing westbound. Turn for an upwind leg while I contemplated my course of action. I reentered the down wind with substantially more distance from the runway. This time the pattern reflected the speed at which I was flying. The Annex T and the turn from base to final was made at a comfortable bank angle and speed once properly stabilized. The T flu like it was on rails. There was a bit of a southwind so I touched down left wing low as I wield the little racer onto the ground. Shortly after securing the aircraft we were in contact with sharp who was gracious enough to forgive me my transgressions and the fact that almost destroyed his wonderful creation. Sharp offer a five page explanation. Absolving me of blame but I knew better. The fault was entirely mine. The takeaways from this incident are many but mostly the recognition of how easily one can allow the deck to be against oneself. It's important to reflect on the various types of risks identifiable acceptable unacceptable and most important on identified remembering that uncertainty is always there hovering over the horizon awaiting the arrival of the unsuspecting pilot. Who has allowed his or her situation awareness to go by the wayside and for identified risk to enter the equation. I've found the episode humbling. A stark reminder of what a lack of attention to detail can lead to reality had returned with soul searing clarity. I had violated a number of tenants. Those irrefutable physics of flight and aerodynamics that cannot be violated and yet I lived to tell the tale
Into the Corn
"Was on a local pleasure flight in my belong to cruise air heading from Twin County airport in hills village Virginia to South West Virginia. My friend Daniel Student pilot was in the right seat. I was the pilot in command. I plan to take off from runway one niner and make a large sweeping right turn to return to the airport. I anticipated flight of fifteen to thirty minutes. Maximum approximately five to seven miles from the airport. I was arguing back to the field at about one thousand five hundred or one thousand seven hundred feet. Ag L. in accrues configuration climbing gently. When I felt a sensation similar to driving over a rumble strip on a highway without much discernible noise change. The engine suddenly backed off to idle with a mild shuddering sensation. The propeller continued to windmill. My initial reaction was to raise the nose and verify that the throttle and mixture were forward. They were still in a gentle. Climb as I- decelerated to approximately best glide speed verified the mags on both and then left and then right individually switched field tanks applied carburetor. Heat verify the landing gear and flaps full up and re trimmed the nose judge the distance to the airport boundary and stated that we needed to have a fielder to picked out in case. The glide. Didn't look good after we stabilized. I quickly determined that we were not within a glide of the airport property and selected a field planted in corn. We had seen just behind the right wing. My reasoning was that was a long ridge of an otherwise very steep hill surrounded by other inhospitable hillsides. And all the pastures had relatively close fences and had visible obstacles rocks included and cattle. I also reason that the corn would help dissipate energy. I briefly experimented with the hand fuel. Pump starter mixture and throttle hoping for at least partial power with zero engine response. Daniel remained calm and very helpful. I initiated a brisk turn to the right which put us on a slightly high angling left base leg. I told Daniel my intentions and once I assured we were clear of the power transmission lines and towers. I confirmed we were configured for a full flap gear up landing and went left to right in the cockpit turning off any potential hazards to our landing including mags. Throttle and mixture fallout master. Switch off. I told Daniel to verify. The cabin door was ajar. At which point he asked about the wheels and I stated it would be an intentional gear up to avoid nosing over just above the corn. I realized my plan to touch down just as the field settled slightly into a bowl. The seaplane technique for water landings and swells was off and I actually went into the corn tassels seconds past that point dragging the tail the descent through the approximately six foot high corn was very noisy and short lived as it provided rapid deceleration as anticipated and we impacted knows high wings level very firmly and stopped almost immediately. Skewing about thirty to forty degrees left just as we stopped even with my experience. Flying from aircraft carriers that touchdown and deceleration is at least tied for the most violent arrest. Moment I have experienced my inertial real lap belts and shoulder harnesses. Were wonderful as soon as we stop moving. I checked on Daniel and told him firmly to get out of the airplane. He did so eagerly as he exited. I handed possibly through the first aid kit at him and followed immediately once clear. We tried to confirm that neither of US was hurt. We remain somewhat away from the aircraft and then got closer to inspect it. I did not see or smell fuel oil. Smoke or flame and so from the wing. I confirm that I had the airplane and IT systems turned off and looked for my cell phone. It was later found in the corn stubble. About twelve feet from the cockpit. Apparently having broken free of its Yo colder an exited through the lower right corner of the windshield we set out through the corn downhill. In the general direction of the nearest road. I estimate are not so straight path to the first cattle fence and subsequently cow path to have covered what is actually only about one quarter mile while walking we both called family members to inform them of our experience and that we were okay. I also arrange to have picked up roadside. We encountered the landowner at the bottom of the hill and informed him how we got there he had no idea. I called the Flight Standards District Office at Charleston West Virginia and left a message and then tried to Richmond. Virginia physio with a similar lack of success. My wife then took me to the Galax Virginia hospital because of increasing lower back discomfort while in the waiting room at the emergency room I was successful reporting the event to a flight service station operator at one. Eight hundred W X brief. Who told me that his computer entries were in fact passed into the government system and that I had therefore notified the FAA. We later discovered that the crankshaft had broken cleanly into it. Shut down all the accessories. Fuel pump mags oil pump. The instant the rear third had stopped rotating that put us in a glider with a big speed break in just one or three skipped heartbeats. I don't count the successful outcome of this. Or my previous four aviation bumps in the night to military to civilian as a result of any exceptional pilot skills on my part but gleefully acknowledged that I had many good and thorough civilian and military instructors over the years who hammered the need for constant practice and self instruction into my piloting. The result is that when something goes wrong. There's no need to think about it simply. React to all the training scenarios and execute the sequence of corrective action. You've already created. It's worked well for
