Interview With Kelly Keller
"In today's guest is former. Alpa employees kelly. Keller kelly under private pilot's license. When she was just twenty years old she comes from a family of aviation and she calls herself a spoiled brat of aviation which seems a little harsh until you realize. She grew up flying where their father and a stagger wing. For most of her youth she learned to fly in tabora so at age nineteen got a private licence at twenty and she's been flying ever since she's worked for textron. Ao pa and now. She's currently the regional sales manager for the southeast for garment kelly. Thanks so much for joining us on the there. I was podcast so kelly. You have quite a hair raising story about flying your family back. In one. seventy two from gaskins white river resort on the way back to hicks airfield. You're flying. you're flying clubs one seventy two and experienced an engine failure. Yeah it was. It was definitely kind of the perfect storm of of situations because it was supposed to be a husband and my baby moon so to speak at seven months pregnant with our first child and had him in the airplane Labrador retriever in the backseats. Obviously mailo co-pilot with me. Yeah we were going to gaskins. White river resort for one last hurrah. It was a great trip really recommend going but on the way back i was over. Really ozark ozark mountains without many airports nearby and smoke in the cockpit. That was my first indication that there is something wrong. Obviously and i could tell. It was kind of an oily smell. But at that point it's just troubleshooting and making sure that i couldn't see that there is anything obvious. Obviously on fire or anything fatso. It's daytime is weather in issued is cleared a million Daytime midday without eleven noon timeframe. Okay in a about what time of years this this is november. So this is november last year. Okay great and about what altitude were you cruising it. So at that time. I was about to say it was about thirty five hundred feet. I wasn't up super high africa. Main reasons i was on fire away. I did not file a flight land as you know probably very few listeners would have this problem but when sediments fragment you probably need to stop somewhere young so we were we were kind of kind of just on an the our flight plan all away and having a good time and Joying enjoying barklay gut. It's the you had about a three hour flight or so home beautiful day. You just had a fabulous vacation with your husband. And you just kinda sauntering back really you know you're going to stop somewhere and you're up at three thousand feet which looks like maybe it's roughly a thousand feet ag l. or sos based on the terrain up there in that part of the country. And just flying back enjoying yourself until all the sudden you kind of start to smell a little bit of something in. Did you say you saw some smoke. Pretty much immediately fell the cockpit and you know when when that happens you always think through what that might look like in in just in our training figure out what your action plan is but until that happens to you. It's really startling. So the first thing i did was has started troubleshooting. Okay is it. Electrical is clearly a fire knows. I opened up the windows just to try to get some mayor his. Obviously i'm very cognizant of of what i'm reading that i'm you open. Open up the windows. He'll the cabin heat. Which is a crucial component. When it came down to it once they killed the cabin he smoke stopped so it was like okay you know. It's it smelled oil. A tell it was something like that and at that point dover might well pressure gauge and it was at zero at that point mike. My husband's a mechanical engineer. He's used overcrowded in a drone engines. Actually so he's very aware of of what that means is well. Luckily i was already talking to air traffic control since i was on the afar calling for that that type of a trip so immediately off with them and get them to try to at least for me to the closest
Traveling To Snowdonia
"Let's start with a peak at the natural appeal of the largest national park. In wales snowdonia the highest peak and wales in fact the highest peak in england and wales is called snowden sits in the heart of the snowdonia region and in one of britain's first national parks these welsh islands offer outdoor adventures gorgeous backdrop and draw countless tourists each year. Well skied martin. The land of its is here to help us make the most of our time in snowdonia martin. Thanks for being here. Thank you for having me there. So i've been to your home. Snowden is right in the backyard you grew up there in northern wales snowden in snowdonia national park mean to you. It's a place. I tend to walk quite a lot. It's just a huge and beautiful area. When i say huge. It's massive eight hundred and twenty seven square miles but you don't see that many people in it feels massive because it's it's windy it stark. It's pristine yeah. Small road not allowed to crowds. How tall is mount snowden. It's the massive height of three thousand six hundred fifty feet above sea level at its peak but because it rises more or less out of the sea. Yeah it has the aspect of bigness about it. It's so interesting because here on the west coast of the united states. Three thousand five hundred feet. It's like this is sort of a medium mountain pass for britain. That's a big peak. That's you know. Ben davis is the highest one in britain and there are few mountains over four thousand of the snowdonia national park. You have all of wales peaks over three thousand feet high and on. I think there's only one pecan english over three thousand okay. And this is the north of wales in. I've traveled on wheels. A fair bid. I just if you got limited time. I would recommend north. The peaks only Less than four thousand feet but didn't The british Climbers have mount everest. Actually practice in the snowden area. They practiced in that. Nobody had ever used oxygen on a mountain before. And so they had a stroll round be had Two systems an open and closed. And they thought oh. The closed system is much better. But what they didn't realize goes onto everest the vows and clo- system froze so the luckily they had a couple of open systems with them but they had some rugged enough areas in north wales where thought they could have some practice there. And you do get to some mountain. they're not resorts alert. Sort of hiking centers or something there. There's some beautiful towns. There's town called. Beth goulart galaxy. Guess who described beth killer it's a mountainous area and therefore towns villages. They nestle in the valleys. They don't sit on tops of hills and bathe galax which means ballots grave is useful in a little bowl with rivers running through it stone building. Oh everything is built on. Everything is built stone bridges over the babbling drone bridges and of course slate roofs because wales used to be the slate production center of the world at one time that right so when we think about going to north wales as a visitor and we want to do some hikes. What advice would you give for enjoying the nature of snowden national park and bringing up some calories at the same time you can hike all levels. Mt snowden itself with acid in welsh is an attraction. And there's a railway that runs up if you don't wanna walk for three hours just take the train and this is kind of a cute little tourist steam train. Yeah it goes from some berries up to the top and that's a family out it is. It gets crowded. Some of what i was going to say is that snowden is like a magnet people have heard people know that so that eight hundred and twenty seven square. Miles will get away from snowden. You'll see fewer and fewer and people which is a lovely thing. It is very empty area. It is and if you wanted to have some rugged memory you could hike it without the steam train. Take what five hours or so three hundred. Well five hours up and down if you if you know. It's a nice day. It's a lovely day. Beware say this flat up. Beware of times of year like easter when it's considerably cooler the top dress. Well okay
Incident: Wings AT72 at Ambon on Jul 3rd 2020, Failure of All Instruments
"A. Wings Eighteen, seventy, two or eighteen, seventy, two dash. Two, one to. At Ambon, which is in Indonesia was flying from Ambon to Babbo with forty nine passengers and three crew D my Indonesia accent. Yeah. I think you make an APP. I am was in the initial climb out of Ambon Putnam, Laura Airport's runway to just when just after becoming airborne all display units, standby instruments, communication and multifunction control display unit failed. All of it. The landing gear lever not good. No landing gear lever could not be retracted. Climbing through about two thousand feet the display units one and three partially recovered showing speed and altitude indications again, and about three thousand feet communication and remaining displaying its intermittently recovered and the landing gear retracted. They put their landing gear lever up and then finally goes. Okay. Yeah. Sure. You're up. You sure. It wasn't doing a Microsoft update or something might have been. So. I'm thinking. If this were instrument meteorological conditions. I believe we will be reading about the accident and terrible tragic crash of this flight however could easily be yeah without any insurance when you're going to do not ways up, right. Thankfully the weather was not quite as bad. I mean it wasn't perfect, but it wasn't IMC apparently. and they were able to maintain. Reference to the. Queues outside to keep the airplane flying straight and level and climbing all stuff aircraft stop the climate four thousand feet position for return to runway for about thirty minutes after departure but went around and enter to hold at seven thousand feet. The aircraft subsequently landed back on runway four, one hour fifty minutes past. Departure. In Asia Cayenne KT which I guess is there investigatory agency rated the occurrence a serious incident? Yeah. Open an investigation. There were no injuries and the aircraft sustained minor damage doesn't really say. How I can recall. Let's see. Then they go into a little bit more detailed by the way this is from the aviation. Excuse me. Aviation Herald. Let's see the weather during the situation was raining and the ground visibility was six kilometers. So you know wasn't. Great with not great. Let's see the. Starting process of the engines was normal when the aircraft taxied in lined up for runway to to. The aircraft took off and after airborne, the pilot verified the idol gate lever engaged I don't know what that is something to do with props. I guess suddenly all five display units and the integrated electronic standby instrument i. e s I went blank and the VHF radios burr off. the pilot glance to the overhead panel several lights eliminated. Consisting of the shed light on the D. C. Service utility busts, the available light on the external power push buttons. That problem they. Hit a great big generated. Along. With the we're just getting of course Pack lavatory detection engine boost. Hey we have a lavatory, we detected there. during the Situa- we just talked about that the pilot did not have flight instruments as reference for flight therefore, the pilot flew visually. about one minute. So everything came back and let's see why is it that they ended up holding for a while they run some checklist or something that the deal oh, I think he was waiting for the weather to improve. A bit before they came in for their landing. Yeah. Sensible. Relying, his attitude indicators. And other instruments. Yeah. Urinate Visual Reference Yeah. That was smart. So you know you'd think that was this the airplane that was kind of Pretty new or was that another one lows? Let's see Oh. August fourth twenty seventeen. Yeah. So it's Relatively, new airplane Not, sure. Exactly. What happened there some kind of electrical. Weirdness apparently yeah. I mean a supply problem but the thing that really concerns me as if you get a supply problem to you main instrument panels. Avis or whatever type of aircraft urine you would expect perhaps to lose some. But the one thing that should you should always bail rely on is you standby instruments they should be from a completely separate power sauce. Often. Just connected almost directly to the battery so that regardless of what else you've lost, you've got something to go on to help fly the airplane. the fact that he lost his signed by insurance as well. makes me seriously concerned about the architecture, the electrical system of of this aircraft. If, they find a full of manages to take out. So many buzzes by all buses that they also lose their same standby instruments that for me is a major concern. Yeah. I'm wondering if if that was something about the way, the electrical system was designed and manufactured or maybe. There was some kind of maintenance done to the airplane and they didn't connect all the bits and bobs correctly. I don't know I saw. The aircraft should be so capable on the ground before they get on something incorrect deep rooted of self diagnosing electrical problem If they wouldn't have got to have on, they had known that they had a major potential right room with their instruments. Sure. So this is just It happens. On a bus of had some problems in the pasta with unexpected glitches which have taken out all the display units but never have I heard of an Airbus having a problem with standby simultaneously that that is just nine national that is not supposed to happen. Ever. But did apparently in this case, and thankfully, the weather was good enough for them to maintain control their come. We had some pundits who had enough skill to bail to continue to fly the airplane the even relatively poor visibility with. Right around which meant horizon, the visual horizon would have been indistinct. They managed to interpret what was happening to the aircraft in their Themselves and not get fooled and not getting a situation where they lost control. So fantastic
Jetpack over LA: Fact or Fiction?
"Saw reference to this on twitter yesterday too. And so people I don't know what we're David. You know we're talking about here. Breath. So there are reports from airline pilots apparently, there are reports line pilots are saying this. I don't know if I've actually heard an airline airline pilot reporting but that that while on on the approach to lax, I think yesterday. They saw quote unquote a guy in a jet pack at altitude. And it's like. It's twenty twenty innings possible. I mean just right but. What have you heard anything that makes you think this could be real. It's twenty twenty anything anything can happen. Ain't that the truth well back that they seem to have gotten. Audio from. The aircraft in. The Tower. Off. Of a presumed Pasco site. that. Would lend a little credence to the to the story. If you know from a live ATC. I didn't bother to click on the links here to to you know I'm just doing the local TV stations. This is from. The war zone actually from the drive DOT COM, they're they're section called the warzone airline pilots landing at LAX report quote a guy in a jet pack unquote flying alongside them It's like, okay This was some guy in a Moonie. Okay. Yeah. Maybe not but according to this news report there's three different airliners. We just passed a guy. No jetpack. And this was. According to according to the tower tower transmission made on the frequency. To jet, blue twenty-three use caution a person in jetpack reported three hundred yards south of the La final at about three thousand feet ten mile final. That's a little segment audio. Save so suddenly. That's so now is this a do we? I don't know what kind of jetpack. Yeah. That's my question is it a? Is it a sort of a James Bond type of jet pack or is it these more recent guys who were jet? Wing? And fought. Because that's the pictures that they've. Looked down lower in the story as an example, they're not saying this is the incident. But there showing other showing. Images, they have of. Of this is the jet man the. Jet called free also but yeah. Rossi's jet man that's that's yeah. emerets did a thing a stunt I don't WANNA call. It was a promotion. That's true. Three four years ago. Where they had this guy, the jet man fly in formation with I. Don't know if it was a three eighty or trip seven but. The image. Here is a four engine I'd say it's a three eighty. Three. Right. He's He's got about half flaps. Put Slow flight in your book right over the top of Dubai and with two of these these jetpack guys. It's hard to tell from the image. But. It looks like they're a good five well, good couple of hundred feet. Above to the left of this three eighty. Is the Radio Tower American nine, hundred and ninety seven. We just passed a guy in a jet pack and our says, American. Nine, hundred seven. Okay. Thank you. Okay well, this is like off to talk to one seventy, two Andrew. This is he he flies overhead lax more or less daily going to and from work. And I'll have to see what he knows about this sky with must have been. Like A shorts three, sixty or something he's like because he says, we just saw the guy passing bias in the jetpack. So I don't know if he could be going the other way but. The JAMPAKHAO, ran this guy whistling. That's embarrassing. Yeah. That's I mean it's gotTa. Be a turtle prop. No RJ captain in there and self respecting RJ captain would fly that slump. Well he's on he's on vinyl. Still doing. You Know Buck Forty Bucks Sixty. Okay well. But I'm sure jetpack guys go faster than one, hundred and forty. Meter not at least. Once. All right well. You know we're we're obviously interested in more evidence. Yes. Yes. We want to hear more accounts of this and I will check in with one seventy two drew just because he's plugged into that community in Long Beach a lot. So where the he may have some some behind the scenes information about what happened over the. Thing that jumps out at me here. Is that. If he's on final. For La. At three thousand feet and ten miles out. It has to be something like Rossi's jetpack because none of the other stuff go ten miles. Right, I wouldn't think that the James Bond if there is even a flying James Bond jetpack these days I, don't know and that was the only good for. Thirty seconds. And that's when I first heard and the first the first report of this I saw on twitter was accompanied by a picture of that jet pack in the Air Right and I thought I sort of thought it was an actual picture which I don't think you now in retrospect that it was but. anyways. So all right. Well I don't know whether we'll learn more about this or not. But when I first heard about this, if saw this whatever was I, thought it was one of those. Fan like a fan driven. Jet. Packs Ah. Some some people have taken to putting just like you do a drone use a lot of motors. They, they've created some some contraptions that that have motors and turn small productive propellers basically -ducted fans. And get off the ground and get off. But basically, it's like a helicopter. So it's Ok off the ground but I don't think they have the altitude duration or speed to do this well. We know that they did it very long. So it did it. They did it for three or four minutes? Three or four different arrivals. So yeah. Yeah. Three or four three different arrivals and figure they're spaced about a minute apart Hey. Okay.
Loren Kopseng: Bird Strike at Night
"Your recently chatting with Marc Baker. Offend of yours and you shared with him some pictures of. You had a bird strike in your beloved. Husky. So do you mind sharing that story with us? We're we're in what we doing how did it happen? We were hunting pheasants in southern South Dakota, a friend of mine, and we hundred up the other short October thirtieth. North here where we live. In five o'clock start to get dark probably five thirty and we got out of this hunting place. So we landed in. Fargo in the dark from southern South Dakota South Appear South Dakota gradually, the town Dallas, and I just came out of a farm. Land Right at this camp where we hunted and I came Outta there I'd feel that Pierre South Dakota way down. So I- plenty of fuel to get to Fargo North Dakota. Dropped my friend off in the dark refueled and started to Bismarck and it was. Also a night ceiling was like A. Twenty, five, hundred, three, thousand feet, which was fine and abused was okay. But my Husky that I had was via foreign the airplane I had replaced the attitude indicator with an electronic one with a decent. Attitude indicator and a ball. So it's basically. A little better than needle airspeed but not much but enough to fly at night if I had to. Actually cost of Fargo heading towards Bismarck North Dakota and I, could see occasionally I was getting a little bit of something. So I put my light on and. I was getting some snow and my airplane doesn't have PTO. Wasn't bad snow but I could see it in the lights and strobes. But I still like it visibility and I was blow the clouds and so I just put her long thirty five hundred feet. Fargo is nine hundred feet above sea level Bismarck in sixteen, Seventy Four. So I'm. Heading west from Fargo North excluded Bismarck North Dakota thirty five hundred feet so roughly fifteen hundred feet above the ground. You know. Easter Bismarck and I've just bad jomon happy trucking along my GPS is working I checked into bismarck approach control. I was squawking the code they gave me and you know just going home all of a sudden. Bo The windshield came in on me and my first reaction was. Airplanes. facture my shop. Why would the windshield break in on me and there was something covering my right I didn't know what it was my glasses. Were smashed my headset. Knocked off it went in the back seat. There was a tremendous amount of cold air hitting. He was about twenty degrees at night. And the bird that hit me I had no idea what it was really came through the front windshield high and took the roof out HUSKIES got plexiglas on the roof to trip that out and then it blew the left windows out. Don't know how but the left window system and yet the the bottom of the flap and cut yet and hit the tail. At, this point in my life I have to, you know bifocals readers so I could see anything. Looking down for a frequency and so lauren cannot partially there for a second. So you just flying back from a nice weekend hunting trip. It's at night snow in a little bit but visibility is good. Just a dark night I presume with overcast. But you're over pretty flat terrain out there North Dakota and it's interesting to me. You didn't hear a loud Bam or the first thing you notice was just your windshield caved in and for a few minutes it sounds like you had no idea why I didn't have any idea. What happened until I got it on the ground other than the windshield came in. I told you the approach control guys I found my headset backseat and cut it up and got it on and told I got a windshield and they were asking me if I wanted to emergency they were voted me about that and I'm trying to fly the airplane and they sure get to see on the ground and I don't Della -mergency please you know slummy fly this thing and so I was able to slow down slightly I didn't WanNa. Definitely wanted to get it on the ground quick but I had a good engine. It was running fine no vibration and control the airplane. I L runs and everything was working right and so I had to airplane from then on it was mainly. So cold in there, it took a big chunk of the top of the airplane out so. I had a tremendous airs, twenty degrees at night. so as immediately, really cold and swansdown helps some. But not much and So I had about twenty five miles to get it to where I live Bismarck. Fortunately, there wasn't any win that night they lit up of a runway for me to one which. Pretty much straight in. I was really glad to get it on the ground and glad they didn't have a serious crossman to deal with or anything else. But I was not able to switch over to our tower frequency or a ground control. But my friends were working in the tower they've been working with me for twenty five miles. And I sold my hey, I can't see that. The frequency. You GotTa land me on approach and taxi me on approach which they did Bismarck's relatively small community in and I knew the tower guy at that time. That was really about it. I got it on the ground and got it our hangar where we got some lights on it, and then I began to see what really happened.
FBI investigating report of 'guy in jetpack' flying 3,000 feet in air at LAX: 'Only in Los Angeles'
"The Air Bird plane. No none of those things true story here at LAX airline pilots reported seeing something very, very strange in the sky way you hear the back and forth here here it is. Here's a reporter Alex. Christine FAA confirms to me that separate flight crews report what quote appeared to be a man in a jet pack as a prepared to land at lax the pilot sounded quite certain can hear for yourself. Seven we just passed the Guy Shifts has. Match in nineteen, Ninety, seven. Thank you were there last night side right side. Awesome love. Maybe three hundred yards or so how else? Okay. They were at. Is Three, thousand feet, three thousand feet, and it looked out the side of the airplane and there's a dude in a jet pack just three football fields away from them. Flying Around rocketeers styles that a thing I guess only in La, they said the airspace around lax the busiest and most complex traffic patterns in the United States
Sole Survivor: The 1869 Yellow Jacket Silver Mine Fire
"April seventh eighteen, sixty, nine, the miners of gold hills yellow jacket mine said goodbye to their families and went to work like any other day. They had no idea that many of them wouldn't ever make it back home. Later that morning uncontrollable methane fire broke out at the minds eight hundred foot level collapsing timbers, and quickly spreading to neighbouring minds. The miners were trapped below with no chance for escape in what was probably the worst mining accident in Nevada history. Yeah. They used to have those methane lamps the did in the minds and they would go out if the methane levels got to a certain level and. Stuff like the candles. And Methane Cub Blam Yeah Oh. Yeah. I mean, I worry about that a lot too because I have a buddy. My best. But up in Idaho Jim Belton he works in a silver mine too and I always worry about them I. mean they have air blast it's. Very dangerous. I got nothing but mad respect for minors man yeah. It's hard work. Hammer Dangerous Oh. Yeah. Working deep any earth as a minor is a job with many hazards including poison gases, explosions collapses, floods, and fires to name a few. To minors like James Dunlavey, the risks were just part of the job. Dunlavey did not dwell on those dangers as he worked in the yellow jacket mine in Gold Hill Nevada, the mind and sister mineshafts were burrowed more than one thousand feet into the Earth as they extracted silver from the comstock lode. Each labyrinth of Mining Chamber was supported with heavy timbering in this tinderbox would minors lit their work with candles or lamps in the US blasting powder fractured the or for removal? The yellow jacket was a great silver producing property at the extreme southern end of the comstock lode. Nothing was more feared by gold and silver miners in a fire in a mine. As the pockets of or a cut away taken out cavities or chambers are created. The overhanging ledges of rocks are supported by Timbers to prevent the rock from caving following the tunnels are drifts reaching out for hundreds of feet in many directions from the shaft completely lined with beams and boards. Sometimes enormous cavities in a mine created by the removal of great pockets of or require eight, hundred and nine hundred thousand feet of timber that is. As Lot would yeah, it is. That's a that's a lot of flammable dangerous would had certainly is. Once again mad props because I have seen some of these things. You've seen it in movies I've seen it in real life. Yeah. It's some of these areas they are vast. Hoping for for your one hundred yards in some cases. And there's nothing supporting this rock, right? Right. I mean it's solid rock. It's holding together but man what is like caves but this is man made stuff see. So you know cave ins and stuff always dangerous. The shaft is face with heavy timbers links a deep and well-worked mind becomes a stupendous subterranean honeycomb of lumber. If a fire broke out any part of the lower levels of a deep mine, it would create a difficult situation for firefighters to get to any minors below level or beyond the point in the drift where fire occurs have little to no chance to survive. They are almost certainly killed before the fire reaches him by suffocation from gases or smoke that reached him I. Yep, and it Burns all the oxygen. Now, the chef exactly no suffocate drop them. It's bad. The comstock minds went down two to three thousand feet into the sides of Mount Davidson which increase the danger of fire would cause. So around eight am on Tuesday. April six, eighteen, sixty, nine. The nightshift miners were clocking out in the early days shift honors coming in. A careless minor perhaps tired from a long night or just excited to be heading home left a candle burning on a wall of timber. Some nine hundred feet deep in the mind which eventually set fire to supporting timbers food. The candle probably burned for hours and served as a life for the miners but having been left behind the flame eventually reached the pinewood on which it stood. The blaze started a chain reaction of disasters. Yeah. I bet it did Dunleavy who was working on the nine hundred foot level was alerted to the catastrophe when he heard the distinct crashing a falling rock. Debris tunnels forcing choking gases and dust into the yellow jacket in neighboring Kentucky Chefs. While running along the nine hundred foot level dunleavy spotted a wall of flame as he raced towards the main shaft, he gave the signal for fire, but the crackling of the Burn Pine Timbers was so loud that his warning shots were drowned out you. Dunleavy, remembered sending at the opening of the nine hundred foot level upon the yellow jacket shopped and heard the screams of minors on the levels below. Airport and from the Kentucky Mind acted like billows and fan configuration as it swept along the nine hundred and eight hundred foot levels and through the laterals to another neighboring mine. That is horrible. It's terrifying is. Horrible what a WAY TO GO TO UTAH? No, you would just. Yeesh the roof collapse around Dunleavy, and he began to choke on the fumes and dust he lay on the floor and pulled a heavy overcoat over himself. This act helped save his life. He was the sole survivor of the nine miners nine hundred foot level. He slipped into unconsciousness and did not wake until hours after he had been rescued
Americans find oil in Saudi Arabia - Mar. 3, 1938
"Today is March. Third Twenty twenty. The Day was March third. Nineteen thirty eight. A group of oil prospectors working for an American company discovered a commercially viable source of Petroleum Mayor Demaim in Saudi Arabia since then Saudi Arabia has consistently been one of the world's top oil producers. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia was established in one thousand nine hundred eighty two when even so combined four regions into one st through conquest even so called for searches for oil a resource that had demand and would be big source of income for a country that needed a boost in its economy in nineteen thirty three. Saudi Arabia signed a contract with the Standard Oil Company of California. Also known as so cow. So cal was granted the right to prospect for oil in Saudi Arabia's eastern provinces side note. So cal is now. Chevron in September of that year American geologist arrived in Saudi Arabia to begin surveys of the land by car airplane. A couple of months later the California Arabian Standard. Oil Company was formed. Cassocks name was later changed to Arabian American Oil Company or Aramco. Geologists began surveying an area around ideological formation near the city of Demaim on the east coast of the country drilling. The first began in April of nineteen thirty. Five in terms of the second whale started in February of Nineteen thirty six soon. More wells were authorized in the area. Those wells did produce some oil but most of them eventually produced more water than oil. Demaim Oilwell number seven at first seemed like it would also be fruitless. The well reached more than three thousand feet beneath the earth. And no water or oil had been found but chief geologist Max. Steiner key thought that they would find oil in the will and he told the company to keep drilling they did and on March third nineteen thirty eight. They struck a significant amount of oil within three weeks. The well had produced over one hundred thousand barrels of oil. In the beginning the oil was sent to. Bahrain barred for export but in nineteen thirty nine. The first tanker load of oil was shipped overseas now. That castle had found oil. It continued mapping and exploring Saudi Arabia looking for more by nineteen forty nine Kazakh. Now Aramco had reached a production of five hundred thousand barrels per day by nineteen fifty. The Trans Arabian pipeline. Had Begun Operations Aramco already paid Saudi Arabia a fee and other benefits but that year. Aramco began to split its profits but the Saudi government nineteen seventy-three the Saudi government purchased twenty five percent of Aramco by the next year it increased. Its stake to sixty percent and in one thousand nine hundred eighty all of course oil rights production apparatus and facilities came under government control by this time demaim oilwell number seven alone have produced more than twenty seven million barrels. Eight years later the company became Saudi Aramco over the next few decades. The company continued to expand its operations and production fuelling Saudi Arabia's economy of course oil production in Saudi Arabia has been an issue closely tied to economics politics and the environment today.

"Calls it's time now for special feature that I like to call tomorrow's tech today because I want to take a look at where exactly the future is headed and this week we're gonna start with a staple of the sci fi world for many years it's the jet pack and you really need to watch this if you have a commando community membership you see the crown prince of Dubai shared a video of her French wingsuit pilot and it definitely looks like something out of a movie he's wearing the jet wing made by a company called jet man do by editor chief to major milestone BC before now I was at a loss from helicopters that's scary but for the first time the jetway was able to take off from the ground soar into high altitude flight about six thousand feet into the air is powered by for many jet engines pretty slick you can turn come to a full stop however and the pilot was able to reach speeds of almost a hundred fifty miles per hour climbing three thousand feet in thirty seconds before deploying a parachute what do you think crash you ready you are yes sure I'll do it I will be that person who can do just strap it on and just go for it my hands are getting sweaty just watching that video he goes up so high he's so fast and he looks like a month because of the antenna as a bonus hello yeah it can it can only stay airborne for thirty minutes so you can't go far but I was the good thing and good thing the Ironman didn't fall in the water because that would be the I. on man the candidates for the flat iron man the definitely yes

The Truth You May Not Know
"Brady meters. We'll come back so you know. Recently I was in Palm Springs Springs. It's a trip that I make quite often with the family. My mother-in-law move down there. So you know we're back and forth quite a lot and the trick is mostly flown at seven thousand five hundred weather permitting and then you kind of pop up to nine thousand five hundred or so. Just where the hatch P. mountains sort of spill off into the Mojave Desert and Palm Springs is surrounded by mountains. So I really. I was thinking about leaning on the way down you know how we teach leaning. How Eileen just watching? When I'm flying with the family in a rental aircraft where I'm paying by the hour by the way and and getting reimbursed for fuel but I really started thinking about it and I ran a couple of polls one on twitter instagram? where I just ask people if they were ever taught that you lenient? In below seventy five percent power. I was shocked to see that on instagram. The majority hadn't heard that and on twitter. It was split fifty fifty so I felt like so you know I get asked the question often about should eileen or do I have to lean or so it seems that people might be confused about Wendelin while I was down in Palm Springs. I just grabbed a camera. It's so quiet down. There in the desert is beautiful and I started working through some of these thoughts about how I think we should think about in the fight training world how we should think about Lee leaning. What's the goal? Where do we want the people end up when they get their private certificate Because you know what happens now is you just not taught a lot and ends up being the private owners that have to figure it out themselves and and they know quite a lot after a while. So I'm trying to fix that problem for student pilots and I think I forgot to mention it but everything you're about to hear does not apply to turbocharged or Turbo Abo- normalized aircraft. It's for normally aspirated engines. Only anyhow. Here's exactly what I said. Well almost exactly what I said when I grab that camera in Palm Springs and if you want to see for some reason my talking head walking around the golf course saying this Video is up on Patriots so anyway. Here's some thoughts on leaving. You know a lot of pilots really don't understand leaning and the flight training environment is not conducive to learning good leaning habits and so what we tend tend to do. I think is sort of ignore it and it's not good for really two reasons one is you're not operating you're typically operating at three thousand feet or lower maybe the three thousand five hundred so you know it's not like nine thousand five hundred the leaning you should be done but it's there's no huge consequence if you fail to do it And also we're doing a lot of maneuver based training so often going to full power settings so we start with a mixture full rich just in anticipation of going full power. I'm so we kinda tend to ignore it and what I find. Is You know with my students and with pilots. I fly with even after. They've been certificates. Did they'll look at me when they get to cruise altitude three thousand five hundred kind of timidly touched a red handle and look at me and see my reaction and say eventually. Do we have to lean or do you want me to lean so you know and it's like one of my least favorite questions because it just reminds me how much work there is to do there. So it's a topic that I'm really taking on not just in this podcast also in the latest public youtube video and this podcast right so You know basic principles of leaning. Ideally ideally you have a perfect fuel air mixture To introduce into the cylinders so that the Pistons can compress it seeing inefficient burns you can produce power with a lot of without a lot out of excess soot or carbon or you know explosions or anything like that you get a nice burn and as you go up in the atmosphere the air becomes less and less dance so you need less and less fuel all these are the that's the basics right and then when everyone can tell me about that but you know maybe the devils in the details but it's maybe it's about win like Wendy Lean so if you go oh to the Cessna manual there talking a lot about altitudes three thousand feet five thousand feet and I find that this is what's common if I ask pilots when you lean they'll say well you know usually above three thousand or sometimes I'll say four thousand on but if you go straight to the lycoming manual the manufacturer of the engine and you read it they'll tell you it's appropriate to lean the aircraft anytime you're operating below seventy five percent power so that's the one main point that I want to convey to people is that the whole reason you have those altitudes three thousand feet the five thousand feet because you don't have percent power gauge so they're giving you a convenient device nice to know when you're at an altitude above which you can't produce seventy five percent power but the main thing according to lycoming is that you're leaning the engine when you're operating below seventy five percent power so I think it's important for pilots to understand this. I think this conversation will serve us a lot. Better than the conversation about altitude For example if we're in cruise flight and you're asking me. Do we have to lean. Well are we doing slow flight. Are we gonNA power back and fly in at minimum controllable air speed for the next thirty minutes or are we gonNA cruise along as fast as we possibly can with attack needle just off the red line because in case a I'd want you to lean in case be I wouldn't rate what if we're in a full power climb up to seven thousand five hundred just like I was on the way down here to palm springs. I'll start leaning leaning as I pass through five thousand because that's the altitude at which I'm no longer producing seventy five percent power. I think it's I think it's wise to think about leaning this way because for the reasons I just mentioned also it's a good reminder that your engine is just a big air pump and also once you start to understand what percent power you're operating. Adding Fuel Burns our constant forgiven percent power output so just seems to be a better way like a more direct way of approaching the topic of leaning meaning rather than talking about altitude. I'm in that really just leaves. Then you know how specifically do you lean. And that part's pretty simple you. The Best Power Leans best economy liens and manufacturers recommended which is sometimes one of the first two that we just described best power is the lean setting that gives you the absolute absolutely most amount of power most of flying fixed pitch prop in training. So this is the lean you should learn how to master you take off you up to cruise altitude. Make sure your pitches constant because if you're pitches and constant you're going to see like if you start pitching up you're gonNA see a drop in RPM when it had nothing to do with leaning it was just because you pitched the airplane up so divide your attention get comfortable pulling out until you feel a slight drop in RPM and then bring it back until you get the most power. You've you can get in practice. That like a little micro skill. I would practice practice moving my hand in and I'll just finding that point bringing it back finding that point get comfortable. Divide your attention. Hold your pitch. pull the mixture back until the power starts to drive and bring it back into good at that right. That's easy. That's the best power lead in a fixed pitch prop airplane. If you're flying the one eighty two I was fine. You don't try that and the governor's GonNa keep the prop at the same RPM so you have to have another way and that other way is exhaust gas temperature. That's how we figure out the mixture because it is the temperature of the gas coming out of the cylinder and we are going to learn how to read that temperature and figure out what it means for us. A best power lean would be peak exhaust gas temperature and then come in fifty or in this case like home and saying one hundred degrees rich hundred degrees rich cool on the rich side of that peak exhaust gas temperature and there's your best power Now best economy is the second kind the least amount of gas you can burn so you have to have an easy t h for this. You can't do attack on or so in the Cessnas that we were talking about or the Piper Warriors those airplanes that have fixed pitch prob- you're just going to use those old analog needle GT's and it takes time right. It takes those E. G. T. needles. Move Slow so you're going to start to lean lean lean and wait for that needle come up and lean and lean and lean away fat needle come eventually it comes up so you mark the peak with that little yellow indicator on cross country flights. That's when I would practice this with students but best power leaned for normal flying once you start doing cross countries. You can start playing at that. Exhaust gas asked temperature.

US Independence of the few vessels to survive the blast independence was towed the nearly five thousand miles miles from Bikini to the hunters point naval shipyard outside of San Francisco for five years from nineteen forty six to nineteen fifty one. The independence was the heart of the Naval Radiological Defence Laboratory. US military's largest facility for applied nuclear research. After the war. The ship yard was is used to investigate methods of decontaminating ships including the independence. The survived operation crossroads but they were also testing for effects is on animals. That evidence is surface that they may have experimented on prisoners from nearby penitentiary.

The Slingshot Spider
"My favorite comic book character is Spiderman is too bad. There isn't really a spider more like him weld on in twenty nine thousand nine three researchers from Georgia. George reported that they'd discovered a tiny spider in the Peruvian Amazon rainforest that has a behavior that surprisingly similar to the web slinging superhero whole soyoil the spider uses its web as a slingshot. It attaches silken thread to the center of the web and to an anchor point somewhere behind it then it reels the central thread in putting the web under tension and pulling it back into a cone then the spider waits. At the center of the cone when a tasty insect flies by the spider releases the thread and the spider and its web are flung forward like a stone from a sling shot. The unfortunate insect is entangled in the web. and the spider attacks the insect becomes the spiders dinner to catch an insect in flight. The slingshot must be really fast it is the researchers studied the spider using high speed digital video imaging. They found that the slingshots spiders maximum acceleration was more than three thousand feet per second squared. This is a hundred times faster than a Cheetah can accelerate toward. It's prey really want to see this video. Is it on the web they researchers put it on Youtube in two thousand fourteen and as of January twenty nineteen. The video has been viewed more than three hundred thousand times. The slingshot spider is an Internet star. This moment of science comes from Indiana University with production.

It was a it was a propaganda victory. Yes. They did claim the first US soils the first soil as you mentioned the first ULA soil loss since the the war of eighteen twelve. But for what the weather was so awful that you couldn't get ships in and out, and you couldn't you couldn't have planes take off and wins. It's one of those things that when you win. What do you do with remarkably coming at the same time as the the battle that I really approved that air power would be decisive in future warfare, namely the battle of midway. This was a conflict where by comparison airpower was a relatively minor factor because nobody's planes could really get the air Do much. You know, you're exactly right. And it's easy for us to to sit back and talk about, you know, big tactical blunders, which are, you know, the the generals made some big mistakes here. But the reality is that you know, I mean the politicians declare war and the generals the tactics, but ultimately wars are fought on the ground by real people who have to live with the consequences. And that's really what got me going on this story in my book. The storm our shores because I was able to tell this of battle through the eyes of two people very different people who are on the ground. We're going to introduce you to dick layered and to Paul Nobuko tests Gucci. Yes, that first name sounds awfully Wester doesn't it? That's part of the story, which we will do as we progress here with our guest, Mark O'Mara, the author of the storm on our shores. This is Chris who calls in. From southern Michigan tonight. Hello, chris. Good morning. Good evening, JIMBO, Misra Masic. Good book. I just wanted to say I understand that whole campaign, then you're kind of preaching to the choir. But there are some very interesting stories in that there's I won't mention if there's a book about the whole campaign, but when they built the Fairbanks airport do the permafrost there. I think it was general Buckner they said they poured like twelve foot. Sixers more concrete in Fairbanks air runway. Then the wasn't all downtown, Sacramento, California. Like they had to put down perforated iron Matt's on runways. So because of the the ripple effect from the way to their craft writing off would would they sink into the muck and stuff that in ill nest on the stand that would be well, there was a lot of problems certainly inherited the entire region. But they were even worse out on these islands. If not forget that because of the size of Alaska, if you do superimpose Alaska on the continental forty eight states, I guess if you were to put let's say at two around Seattle, then I guess the capital of Juneau would be close to Florida, wouldn't it? Mark. You're right. I mean ASCA Alaska is immense. And as as as the caller notes, I mean, anybody who tried to build on ASU ran into the same problems that you're caller referred to in Fairbanks the soil. And I've I've been the attitude the soil is like walking out of sponge, it's mushy, you go up and down in the most cake, and as a result, it really was almost impossible to build roads and a runway that would less so. There was fog the troops who fought their talked of days that they could even see the end of the rifle the fog was so was so dense, you know, how you gonna take off in in land planes in that.

Jim can you hear me? Find your other radio. Go right ahead. Okay. I just wanted if the author if the author of research the book called the American zero. No not with. Yeah. So if you tell us, Kurt what's it about? Okay. It's about how we crack. The cracked a problem. We have with the Japanese zero fighter. We had nothing. We no, no, no carrier planes who could match it for some reason. Well, during this during this Aleutian campaign, one of those crashed the the took a this took the ground the see shot it was on the and you can get back to his carrier. But when he when he flew over the stream and Serge leeann he flipped over right actually lending tundra frozen tundra. Broke his neck and a Catalina or better returns is found is flipped over in tundra. And they sent his team out in the very same day. It's part it took it back put American Martens on. They finally cracked the problems. They had with the Japanese era. Yeah. It's about effect that they discovered among other things that it was very flimsily built. It was able to maneuver so rapidly because it had virtually no protection for the pilots. And once we learned to shortcomings, why we later produce superior planes that from the rest of the war on were were vastly better than what the Japanese had had available.
