  1. What about the strange phenomena when you use small amounts of rudder while braking and <100 km/h with <3000 kg of fuel on an empty plane? The tires don't blow while braking and using the rudder at ~250 km/h, yet somehow one of them blows when the speed falls below 100 km/h. Very strange, but expected in a beta FM. (Oh, I'm back after some years)
  2. You mean a BAE Hawk DCS module. That pic is of one of our F-16's at an airshow, it had trouble keeping rpm, had to jettison droptanks, atc guided him to an ejection point, but he managed to keep in the air barely. Landed safely afterwards.
  3. Fox News....:no_sad: This is the original story, much better that that propaganda agency :) http://www.michaelyon-online.com/warthog.htm
  4. Let's hope they will make their own design this time. And why is Xerox not a Chinese company? Oh well, I bet they have a real Zherroks :P
  5. The triangles are standars symbology for incoming bogeys, has been in use since the Su-27 and Mig-29, standard symbology for the datalink display on the right (and only) CRT screen.
  6. Так же как на 34ке? т.е. неральная сеть? Иле уж как в Файрфоксе :D
  7. OTOH, the design characteristics for it were also strict, it's basically an STOL given the 400m runway requirement. That surprises me more than the stupid talk about the 'lateral bays' and how the compressor would be visible (on paralay it was proven that it is visible for 1/6th, shold it lack any ramps). It may be 20 years behind the YF-22, but I don't think stealth was their main criterea, I'm guessing a de-centralised air warfare structure may be the future for Russia (akin to the highway runways in Sweden). But that is only speculation based on take-off and landing requirements.
  8. All that retarded speculation on airliners.net on how the final Su-50 will look like, 'proven' with the T-10 and the final Su-27. Well gents, spread the word, the T-10 prototype for the Su-27 was rejected because it did not surpass the F-15, hence the T-10 was redone. The final plane will be more likely like with the YF-22 and the F-22, let's hope it won't get uglier like the F-22 did.
  9. What about the Su-27 crash near Komsomolks Na Omur? Could it be that the PAK-Fa already crashed, and the story is being covered up by saying it was a Su-27SM???? :D Well, not funny, the pilot is dead, but he did what he loved, so not a lot of remorse here.
  10. Well, if it performs for 70% of the Raptor's and costs 50%, then it's good value.
  11. Well, Sukhoi said that there will be a press kit available in the begin on January, so it's just a matter of time now, or they must mean January 2011 :P And if it crashes during the first flights, let's we'll get to see how well the next generation of the K-36 ejection seat is performing :D (my sick fascination with ejection seats :P) EDIT: P.S., over at paralay dot ru there is a new reminder not to disclose information about the PAK-FA. I think someone got a message from the Russian security services over there :P Let's hope the press kit will be released soon.
  12. What, you think the prototype will crash on your house? :P
  13. There was also in incident with a Harrier, after a birdstrike the engine spooled down, the pilot ejected, and the rocket flame (Martin Baker seats have two nozzlesangles inwards) cleared the bird remains, so the plane flew on pilotless until it ran out of fuel. http://www.ejectorseats.co.uk/ejection_from_a_harrier.htm
  14. "I am, 'bort' (ship number) zero-two, threshold of angle of attack" ---> nothing fancy, just that the real Betty also says which plane number the warning is coming from.
