Stefan Drury


Published on Nov 21, 2018
EP176: Flying a Cessna 172 from Queenstown Airport, New Zealand, through mountain valleys over the snow. I fly a C172 with Wakatipu Aero Club over Mountains and Lakes to explore Queenstown from the air. We fly out of Queenstown Airport, over the Shotover River, Coronet Peak, Lake Wakatipu, and back via some low level valley flying.

Thanks to Kerry and the Wakatipu Aero Club for helping organise this and for looking after me on the day. If you're in Queenstown and want to go fly I can't recommend it enough, what a great experience!

How I broke a Cirrus SR22 (and how we fixed it) - real footage
Stefan Drury


Published on Dec 5, 2018
EP179: Hard landing damages a Cirrus SR22. See my bad landing, watch the nosewheel get damaged, and see how it's repaired. Today's vlog shows the landing at Bankstown Airport, and analyses what caused it. We also get taken through the repair process by the Blue Demon Aviation team at Moorabbin Airport.

Thanks to Paul, Steven, Mark, and everyone at Blue Demon Aviation for helping with this video: http://www.bluedemon.com.au

I'm sharing this video to help other pilots learn from my mistake, and to help share what happens when a Cirrus aircraft part gets damaged and how it's fixed.

Please remember if you have any repairs or maintenance issues with an aircraft to consult a Licensed Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (LAME) before doing anything yourself.

PeriscopeFilm


Published on Dec 10, 2018
This 1963 color film, SFP-1214 “Tactical Weapons Effects Tests” is produced by the United States Air Force. January 1963, the Air Force performed tactical weapons test against difficult air and ground realistic limited war targets while flying at high speed. Each test shows massive explosions and/or targets in flames. Planes shown throughout the film include the F-105, F-104, F-100, F-84F, YC-123H, and C-130. The types of targets created are shown (1:30-1:54). The aircraft camera film is removed for delivery to Air Force Army Command elements. The developed black and white photos are studied; targets circled and shown (1:55-2:29). The first test for the F-105 Thunderchief was to bring down a radio controlled jet fighter using explosive and armor-piercing incendiaries (2:30-3:00). The F-100 Super Sabre also destroys a radio-controlled plane going 180 mph (3:01-3:22). The F-104 Starfighter tests a Sidewinder missile (3:23-3:47). F-105s test a napalm attack at a simulated forward field (3:48-4:00). F-104s test their Gatling guns for strafing damage against a camouflaged parked jet aircraft (4:01-4:18). The F-105 tests a Zuni rocket against an airstrip target (4:19-4:30). F-100s are used to test napalm against missile site guidance control (4:31-4:49), against an anti-aircraft position (4:50-5:05), and using 2.75” rockets against a maintenance tent area (5:06-5:26). F-84F Thunderstreaks test napalm against a larger maintenance tent area (5:27-5:48). A Bullpup missile from an F-100 destroys a concrete bunker (5:49-6:03). An instantaneous fused missile is launched (6:04-6:24). A Zuni rocket attacks a command post bunker from an F-100 and the concrete damage assessed, followed by an F-105 attack (6:25-7:13). Attacks on mortar positions were carried out by the F-104 and damaged test mannequins shown (7:14-7:40). F-84s also strike mortar positions using napalm (7:41-7:59). F-104s attack an artillery piece (8:00-8:27). A fuel dump is hit by a F-104 Gatling guns (8:28-9:06). F-105s each drop 16 750-pound bombs on a large area target (9:10-9:47), followed by Gatling gun attacks on a convoy (9:48-10:14), and destroying a radio-controlled helicopter while attacking at 460 mph (10:15-10:48). A Bullpup missile from an F-100 destroys a heavily-armored tank (10:49-11:36). F-104s napalm a convoy (11:37-12:18). A jungle-type four-section pontoon bridge is destroyed by B-26 rockets (12:19-12:49). F-104s napalm tank targets (12:50-13:22). The F-100D uses rockets against a Howitzer, and footage from the target shows the rocket pattern (13:23-14:00). Rockets are used against simulated water landing boats and vehicles (14:01-14:55). The danger to the pilots is shown when the aircraft hasn’t completely cleared the area before delayed explosions occur. The F-105 and F-100 are hit by fragments, forcing the pilots to eject (14:56-16:07). F-100s and F-104s attack an immobile train target using the Bullpup guided missile and rockets (16:08-17:03). Also tested was the landing and take-off capabilities of the Fairchild YC-123H (17:04-18:15). The C-130 Hercules skims the ground and drops off a weapons carrier without landing (18:16-18:39). Its short field landing and take-off capabilities were tested in soft clay (18:40-19:40). Misses and weapon malfunctions from earlier footage are shown (19:41-19:52). The film closes with guns, rockets, bombs, missiles, and napalm (20:27-21:02).

NORTH AMERICAN AVIATION AIRPLANE & MISSILE CRASH REEL "BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD" 88784z
PeriscopeFilm


Published on Dec 11, 2018
This silent film from the vault of North American Aviation was used as a teaser at a convention of test pilots, aircraft engineers and supervisors, etc. The film is an epic compilation of aviation fails from WWI to the 1960s and features airplane crashes, missiles exploding, etc. It uses some documentary footage and quite a bit of Hollywood material. The film starts at :17 with a WWI biplane slamming into a house, and shows Navy biplanes colliding at :24. At :41 a WWI barrage balloon is shot down while at :55 a WWI airplane crashes into the ground and flips over. At 1:50 a biplane does a "ground loop" and concerned bystanders rush over. At 3:00 the Zeppelin Hindenburg explodes in flames at Lakehurst. At 4:42, WWII Navy airplanes are shown crashing into an aircraft carrier. At 8:03 the X-10 Navajo cruise missile is shown exploding during a test run. At 9:00 a double rocket / missile payload goes out of control and is self-destructed. At 9:58 a jet being launched by JATO rocket is shown. At 10:20 the bottle did not detach so the pilot ejects from the aircraft. At 10:35 aircraft debris are shown at what might be Edwards Air Force Base as a fire crew puts them out. At 10:56 a rocket engine test stand is shown. At 11:00 a massive fireball erupts from the stand. At 11:20 an F-101 Starfighter goes out of control on the runway after a fuel tank separates, causing it to crash on the ground. At 11:46 a test aircraft spins on the runway. At 12:02 the prototype B-57 Hustler is seen on its first test flight, suffering a blown tire. At 12:48 crews at Edwards shower the runway with fire retardant so the plane can be brought in safely at 13:05. At 14:29 a rocket or jet firing stand suffers a complete destructive blowout. At 15:10 an X-15 rocket plane flown by Neil Armstrong lands at Edwards AFB and suffers catastrophic fuselage damage. At 16:11 an ejection seat firing is shown. At 16:37 the reel ends with an atomic bomb blast just for fun!

U.S. AIR FORCE THUNDERBIRDS F-16 FIGHTING FALCON ERA 23054
PeriscopeFilm


Published on Dec 18, 2018
This profile of the USAF Thunderbirds dates to the time period between 1983-1985, when SSgt Steve Geoghegan served as Crew Chief with SSgt Paul Cantwell and Capt. John Bostick (among others). The film documents the return of the Thunderbirds to America's skies after a devastating series of accidents that resulted in the deaths of five pilots in 19 months, including four who were tragically killed while practicing at the Nellis, Nevada base on Jan. 18, 1982. The deaths were caused when their T-38 Talons crashed to the ground in close formation after a mechanical malfunction on the lead plane. Many said the Thunderbirds would never fly again but thanks to strong leadership and determination the team took to the skies again starting in 1983.

The USAF Air Demonstration Squadron ("Thunderbirds") is the air demonstration squadron of the United States Air Force (USAF). The Thunderbirds are assigned to the 57th Wing, and are based at Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada. Created 65 years ago in 1953, the USAF Thunderbirds are the third-oldest formal flying aerobatic team (under the same name) in the world, after the United States Navy Blue Angels formed in 1946 and the French Air Force Patrouille de France formed in 1931.

The Thunderbirds Squadron tours the United States and much of the world, performing aerobatic formation and solo flying in specially marked aircraft. The squadron's name is taken from the legendary creature that appears in the mythologies of several indigenous North American cultures.

The F-16 has been the demonstration aircraft for the Thunderbirds since the 1983 season. In January 1982, 4 members of the squadron were killed in what became known as the "Diamond Crash" of T-38 Talon aircraft which the squadron had flown since 1974. Partially as a result of that accident, the squadron switched to the F-16A, and sat out the 1982 airshow season and spent that year retraining and transitioning over to the new aircraft to ready themselves for the 1983 season. The F-16, however, had been considered for transition prior to the accident. In rebuilding the Thunderbird Team, the Air Force recruited previous Thunderbird pilots, qualified each in the F-16A, and had them begin by flying "two-ship" maneuvers, then expanded the program one airplane at a time up to the full six airplanes. Beginning in June 1982, the F-16 Thunderbirds were led by Major Jim Latham.

The team continues to fly the F-16, having switched from the F-16A to the F-16C in 1992. Only a few minor modifications differentiate a Thunderbird from an operational F-16C. These include the replacement of the 20 mm cannon and ammunition drum with a smoke-generating system, including its plumbing and control switches, the removal of the jet fuel starter exhaust door, and the application of the Thunderbirds' glossy red, white, and blue polyurethane paint scheme. All of the modification work is performed at the maintenance depot at Hill AFB near Ogden, Utah. Other than those modifications, the aircraft are taken from the standard USAF inventory as production fighters, and can be returned to an operational squadron in short order without any major modification.

During the switch to the F-16A the Thunderbirds acquired new block 15 aircraft which they operated from 1983 to 1991, making the team one of the last USAF units flying the older F-16A's before transitioning into new C's. They also operated the two-seat F-16B during this time for training new pilots and for VIP flights, these being replaced by the F-16D when the rest of the squadron transitioned to the F-16C.

The block 32H/J aircraft currently assigned to the Thunderbirds were built in 1986 and 1987, and operated by the Thunderbirds from 1992 to 2008. At their retirement, they were some of the oldest operational F-16s in the Air Force.

In the 2009 show season the Thunderbirds transitioned to an updated version of the F-16 fighter. The Block 52s have an upgraded avionics package that brings the Thunderbird fleet into alignment with the rest of the worldwide F-16 fleet. Additionally, the more powerful Pratt & Whitney F100-PW-229 engine adds an additional 3,600 lbf of thrust. This in turn increases the maximum allowable gross weight for ground handling, taxi, takeoff and in-flight maneuvers by nearly 5,000 lb.

FILM COMMUNIQUE P-51 MUSTANG / A-36 APACHE GROUND ATTACK MISSION WORLD WAR II 87874
PeriscopeFilm


Published on Dec 19, 2018
This film shows the A-36 (a P-51 Mustang variant) being used as a ground support and strike aircraft on the Italian front in WWII. The North American A-36 Apache (listed in some sources as "Invader", but also called Mustang) was the ground-attack/dive bomber version of the North American Aviation P-51 Mustang, from which it could be distinguished by the presence of rectangular, slatted dive brakes above and below the wings. A total of 500 A-36 dive bombers served in North Africa, the Mediterranean, Italy and the China-Burma-India theater during World War II before being withdrawn from operational use in 1944.

This Film Communique from WWII, "A Day with the A-36s" shows North American A-36 Invaders operating in Italy, performing ground strike missions against German targets in Southern Italy including roads leading to Mt. Etna. The North American A-36 Apache (sometimes also called the "Invader", but also called Mustang) was the ground-attack/dive bomber version of the North American P-51 Mustang, from which it could be distinguished by the presence of rectangular, slatted dive brakes above and below the wings. A total of 500 A-36 dive bombers served in North Africa, the Mediterranean, Italy and the China-Burma-India theater during World War II before being withdrawn from operational use in 1944.

The A-36A-1-NA first joined the 27th Fighter Bomber Group composed of four squadrons based at Rasel Ma in French Morocco in April 1943 during the campaign in North Africa. The A-36A proved to be a potent weapon; it could be put into a vertical dive at 12,000 ft (3,658 m)with deployed dive brakes, thus, limiting the dive speed to 390 mph (628 km/h). Pilots soon recognized that extending the dive brakes after "peel-off" led to some unequal extension of the brakes due to varying hydraulic pressure, setting up an invariable slight roll which impeded aiming. Proper technique soon cured this anomaly and, subsequently, pilots achieved extremely consistent results. Depending on the target and defenses, the bomb release took place between 2,000 ft and 4,000 ft (610 and 1,219 m), followed by an immediate sharp "pull up."

By late May 1943, 300 A-36As had been deployed to the Mediterranean Theater, with many of the first batch sent to the 27th to re-build the group following losses as well as completing the final transition to an all-A-36A unit. Both groups were actively involved in air support during the Sicilian campaign, becoming especially adept at "mopping" up enemy gun positions and other strong points as the Allies advanced. During this operation, the 27th Group circulated a petition to adopt the name "Invader" for their rugged little bomber, receiving unofficial recognition of the more fitting name.

Besides dive bombing, the A-36A racked up aerial victories, totaling 84 enemy aircraft downed and creating an "ace", Lieutenant Michael T. Russo from the 27th Fighter Bomber Group (ultimately, the only ace using the Allison-engined Mustang). As fighting intensified in all theaters where the A-36A operated, the dive bomber began to suffer an alarming loss rate with 177 falling to enemy action. The main reason for the attrition was the hazardous missions that placed the A-36A "on the deck" facing murderous ground fire. German defenses in southern Italy included placing cables across hill tops to snare the attacking A-36As.] Despite establishing a "reputation for reliability and performance, "the one "Achilles' heel" of the A-36A (and the entire Mustang series) remained its vulnerable cooling system leading to many of the losses. By June 1944, A-36As in Europe were replaced by Curtiss P-40s and Republic P-47 Thunderbolts.

The A-36A also flew missions in the CBI throughout 1943–1944 with indifferent results. The A-36A remained in service in small numbers throughout the remaining year of the war, some being retained in the US as training aircraft.

This film also contain a confidential release of German Newsreels showing Germany might and intention for world domination.

Messerschmitt BF 109, Why Such Short Range?
Greg's Airplanes and Automobiles


Published on Mar 12, 2019
This is an older video I touched up and re uploaded. The question of the 109's range comes up a lot, so I put the answers into a video.

In the video I mention three other videos,

The 109's supercharger drive system: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NcI67...

and an explanation as to why the 109G is so much slower than the P-51D: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTD7D...

and why the 109K is so dang fast, Water:Methanol Injection!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1PA70...

Thanks for watching.

Important Note: Nowhere in this video do I say that there is no cooling effect from the evaporation of fuel. People seem to be "reading that in" to what I actually said. The issue I have is that there is NO benefit in terms of performance from the pressure drop at the venturi.

Evaporation of fuel does create a benefit, but that has NOTHING to do with carburetor vs. fuel injection comparisons. Either system can get that benefit and many WW2 aircraft using fuel injection do just that. Only a small amount of the fuel evaporates, and an ideal system would use direct injection at each cylinder and inject a small amount of fuel farther upstream in the intake tract, which is exactly what the Germans did in some cases. This gives the best of both worlds. However even without the vaporization, injection is still superior.

Me 163 Komet Rocket Plane 1947 USAF Wright Field; from Air Materiel Command Pictorial Review #1

Captured German footage of the Messerschmitt Me 163 Komet described with English narration provided by the US Air Force Air Materiel Command at Wright Field, Ohio.

Originally a public domain film from the US Army, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied.
The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Messers...
Wikipedia license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/b...

The Messerschmitt Me 163 Komet was a German rocket-powered interceptor aircraft. Designed by Alexander Lippisch, it is the only rocket-powered fighter aircraft ever to have been operational and the first piloted aircraft of any type to exceed 1000 km/h (621 mph) in level flight. Its performance and aspects of its design were unprecedented. German test pilot Heini Dittmar in early July 1944 reached 1,130 km/h (700 mph), an unofficial flight airspeed record unmatched by turbojet-powered aircraft for almost a decade. Over 300 Komets were built, but the aircraft proved lackluster in its dedicated role as an interceptor and destroyed between 9 and 18 Allied aircraft against 10 losses. Aside from combat losses many pilots were killed during testing and training...

Work on the design started around 1937 under the aegis of the Deutsche Forschungsanstalt für Segelflug (DFS)—the German Institute for the study of sailplane flight...

The division of work between DFS and Heinkel led to problems,[when?] notably that DFS seemed incapable of building even a prototype fuselage. Lippisch eventually asked to leave DFS and join Messerschmitt instead. On 2 January 1939, he moved with his team and the partly completed DFS 194 to the Messerschmitt works at Augsburg...

In early 1941 production of a prototype series, known as the Me 163, began. Secrecy was such that the RLM's "GL/C" airframe number, 8-163, was actually that of the earlier, pre-July 1938 Messerschmitt Bf 163...

In December 1941, work on an upgraded design began. A simplified construction format for the airframe was deemed necessary, as the Me 163A version was not truly optimized for large-scale production. The result was the Me 163B subtype, which had the desired, more mass-producible fuselage, wing panel, retractable landing skid and tailwheel...

Meanwhile, Walter had started work on the newer HWK 109-509 bipropellant hot engine, which added a true fuel of hydrazine hydrate and methanol, designated C-Stoff, that burned with the oxygen-rich exhaust from the T-Stoff, used as the oxidizer, for added thrust...

The biggest concern about the design was the short flight time, which never met the projections made by Walter. With only seven and a half minutes of powered flight, the fighter truly was a dedicated point defense interceptor. To improve this, the Walter firm began developing two more advanced versions of the 509A rocket engine, the 509B and C, each with two separate combustion chambers of differing sizes, one above the other, for greater efficiency...

On 6 July 1944, the Me 163B V18 (VA+SP), like the B V6 basically a standard production Me 163B airframe outfitted with the new, twin-chamber "cruiser" rocket motor with the aforementioned airframe modifications beneath the original rocket motor orifice to accept the extra combustion chamber, set a new unofficial world speed record of 1,130 km/h (702 mph), piloted by Heini Dittmar, and landed with almost all of the vertical rudder surface broken away from flutter. This record was not broken in terms of absolute speed until 6 November 1947 by Chuck Yeager in flight number 58 that was part of the Bell X-1 test program, with a 1,434 km/h (891 mph), or Mach 1.35 supersonic speed, recorded at an altitude of nearly 14,820 m (48,620 ft). However, it is unclear if Dittmar's flight achieved sufficient altitude for its speed to be considered supersonic, as the X-1 did.

The X-1 never exceeded Dittmar's speed from a normal runway "scharfer Start" liftoff...

As EK 16 commenced small-scale combat operations with the Me 163B in May 1944, the Me 163B's unsurpassed velocity was something Allied fighter pilots were at a loss to counter. The Komets attacked singly or in pairs, often even faster than the intercepting fighters could dive. A typical Me 163 tactic was to fly vertically upward through the bombers at 9,000 m (30,000 ft), climb to 10,700–12,000 m (35,100–39,400 ft), then dive through the formation again, firing as they went...

Tony Wytenburg from CAMS (Classic Aero Machining Service) talks to HAFU about the replica Gnome rotary aero engines that the company has been building for the last few years.

CAMS has reverse engineered these 100-year old aircraft engines, made some modern improvements for safety, and are selling them to aircraft builders wanting to put an authentic rotary engine into their new build World War One aircraft, albeit with a little extra safety that comes with a new and improved engine, rather than a 100-year old original.

Learjet 35A Teterboro Runway 1 Approach Crash • NTSB Animation
AIRBOYD

Crash During Circling Approach to Runway 1 at Teterboro Airport Teterboro Airport Teterboro, New Jersey May 15, 2017 CEN17FA183

This two-dimensional animated reconstruction shows the sequence of events in the accident, which occurred on May 15, 2017, about 1529 eastern daylight time, when a Learjet 35A, N452DA, departed controlled flight while on a circling approach to runway 1 at Teterboro Airport, Teterboro, New Jersey.

The sequence of events was reconstructed based on information from radar data, the airplane’s Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System (EGPWS), the airplane’s cockpit voice recorder (CVR) transcript, Air Traffic Control (ATC) radio communications, and aircraft performance data. Selected comments from the CVR transcript and ATC communications are displayed as text along with the time they occurred. A sequence of still-image map graphics is used to provide an overview of the circumstances of the accident and the plane’s position as time advanced. Still images are followed by a continuous animation of the accident airplane, beginning from 15:27 to the time of the accident at 15:29. The animation does not depict the weather or visibility conditions.

The animation is then followed by a video clip showing the airplane crashing in a parking lot less than one mile southwest of the Teterboro airport. The animation includes audio replay of ATC communications and audio narration. The animation begins with a picture of the accident aircraft, a Learjet 35A, N452DA. An overall map of the area shows the origin of the flight at Philadelphia International Airport, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to the destination at Teterboro airport, Teterboro, New Jersey, with a straight-line distance of about 80 nautical miles and a flight time of about 25 minutes.

The filed flight plan with a requested altitude of twenty-seven thousand feet for a planned distance of about 120 nautical miles is depicted in white, and the Air Traffic Control cleared route to fly at four-thousand feet is shown in blue. Subsequently, the airplane’s actual ground track is shown at selected times over the course of the flight by a white arrow indicating the airplane’s position and heading, and the magenta line tracing the ground track.

The wide area map view is changed to a more focused map view displaying the four airports in the area: Teterboro Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport, John F. Kennedy International Airport, and LaGuardia Airport. The location of MetLife stadium south of Teterboro Airport and the navigational waypoints VINGS, DANDY and TORBY are also indicated. Ground tracks of previous aircraft flying the same circling approach that was assigned to the accident airplane are presented as white lines to show typical approach paths.

Wind direction and speed is indicated. The orientation for the Instrument Landing System (ILS) localizer for runway 6 is indicated, and the waypoint TORBY is highlighted as the waypoint where airplanes were typically told to begin the circling approach to runway 1. The map view again changes to an even more focused map view concentrating on the last 2 minutes of the flight as the airplane approached Teterboro Airport.

The position of the airplane is depicted in a continuous real time animation. The right side of the screen shows selected statements from the CVR and ATC transcript as text appearing at the time indicated in the transcript. The statements are attributed to the Captain, the SIC (Second-in-Command) and New York approach (APP-NYC) or Teterboro tower (TWR-TEB).

The airplane’s airspeed and altitude are indicated at the bottom of the frame, along with the local time. The animation transitions to a video captured by a security camera showing the airplane as it impacted the ground at a right bank angle of about 125 degrees.

Published on Dec 27, 2018
At an airbase in England in 1943 an extraordinary event occurred - one night German Focke-Wulf 190 fighters started landing one after the other. The pilots were lost, but the quick-thinking actions of a lowly RAF Aircraftman inside an unlikely armoured car meant that the German pilots and their valuable machines were going nowhere once they realised their terrible mistake! The eagles, quite literally, landed!
