English Electric Canberra

The English Electric Canberra is a British first-generation jet powered medium bomber. It was developed by English Electric during the mid-to-late 1940s in response to a 1944 Air Ministry requirement for a successor to the wartime de Havilland Mosquito fast bomber. Among the performance requirements for the type was an outstanding high-altitude bombing capability and high speed. These were partly accomplished by making use of newly developed jet propulsion technology. When the Canberra was introduced to service with the Royal Air Force (RAF), the type's first operator, in May 1951, it became the service's first jet-powered bomber.

In February 1951, a Canberra set another world record when it became the first jet aircraft to make a non-stop transatlantic flight. Throughout most of the 1950s, the Canberra could fly at a higher altitude than any other aircraft in the world and in 1957, a Canberra established a world altitude record of 70,310 feet (21,430 m). Due to its ability to evade the early jet interceptor aircraft and its significant performance advancement over contemporary piston-engined bombers, the Canberra became a popular aircraft on the export market, being procured for service in the air forces of many nations both inside and outside of the Commonwealth of Nations. The type was also licence-produced in Australia by the Government Aircraft Factories and in the US by Martin as the B-57 Canberra. The latter produced both the slightly modified B-57A Canberra and the significantly updated B-57B.

In addition to being a tactical nuclear strike aircraft, the Canberra proved to be highly adaptable, serving in varied roles such as tactical bombing and photographic and electronic reconnaissance. Canberras served in the Suez Crisis, Vietnam War, Falklands War, Indo-Pakistani wars and numerous African conflicts. In several wars, each of the opposing sides had Canberras in their air forces.

The Canberra had a lengthy service life, serving for more than 50 years with some operators. In June 2006, the RAF retired the last of its Canberras, 57 years after its first flight. Three of the Martin B-57 variant remain in service, performing meteorological and reentry tracking work for NASA, as well as providing electronic communication (Battlefield Airborne Communications Node or BACN) testing for deployment to Afghanistan.

The TT is more about looks than outright performance, so we would opt for the base TT coupe rather than the more expensive TTS. (If you really want a powerful TT, go with the thrilling five-cylinder TT RS with nearly 400 hp.) Audi added lots of standard equipment for 2021, so the only option we&rsquod consider for a 2022 model is the 19-inch wheel package, which includes summer performance tires.

A turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine lives under the hood of the TT, and it generates 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. The TTS gets a beefed-up version of this engine that's tuned to deliver 288 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. Both cars use a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with Quattro all-wheel drive. Whether you choose the TT or the TTS, you'll enjoy responsive handling.

Mooney M20 Series Aircraft Information

The Mooney M20 series features a low- wing and propeller-driven aircraft. The aircraft has the capacity for one crew member and three passengers and has an empty weight of 2,370 lb (1,074 kg) and a gross weight of 3,374 lb (1,528 kg). The cruise speed is 237 kn (272 mph, 438 km/h) and the M20 should not exceed a speed of 242 kn (278 mph, 448 km/h).

The M20 is manufactured by the Mooney Airplane Company and was the twentieth design and most successful design from Al Mooney. Over the last 50 years, the Mooney M20 series has been produced in many variations. Various models of the Mooney M20 series include the M20, M20A, Mooney M20B, Mooney M20C, Mooney M20C Mark 21, Mooney M20C Ranger, M20D, Mooney M20E, Mooney M20E Super 21, Mooney M20F, Mooney M20F Exec 21, M20G, Mooney M20J 201, Mooney M20J 205, Mooney M20J MSE, Mooney M20K 231, Mooney M20K 231 Modified, Mooney M20K 252, Mooney M20K 252TSE, Mooney M20K 305 Rocket, Mooney M20K Encore, M20L, Mooney M20M Bravo, Mooney M20M GX Bravo, Mooney M20R Ovation, Mooney M20S Eagle, M20T, and M20TN Acclaim. The company announced that it was halting all production in November 2008 as a result of the late 2000s recession. As of April 2011 the company has not resumed production.

The M20 airframes are all-metal, low-wing aircraft with the exception of the wooden wing spars of the original M20 and M20A. The wings of the aircraft are of cantilever construction and the wing skin is aluminum. Early models of the M20 use a hydraulic pump to control the flaps. Later models have electrically-operated flaps.

Many Mooney M20 series aircrafts have a ram air system called the Mooney "Power Boost" for increased power. The intake air is filtered before it enters the induction system for normal operations. Partially unfiltered air will enter the induction system with a higher pressure and the manifold pressure will increases about a full inch when flying at 7,500 msl when ram air is selected. This gives a greater power output. The ram air feature is omitted on the turbocharged variants. They are their own "power boost" that provides far more increases in manifold pressure.

The M20 series store fuel in two separate tanks, which are located in the inboard sections of each wing. The M20 has a unique tailplane with a vertical leading edge. The tapered wings of the M20 have a medium aspect ratio. The tricycle undercarriage legs are made of heat-treated chrome-molybdenum steel. The main landing gear legs are attached to the main wing spar. The nose gear is mounted on the steal cabin frame. There are rubber discs and spring steel around the legs that allow for compression and shock absorption on landing. Early models of the Mooney M20 use a hand-operated lever system to raise and lower the landing gear, while later models use an electrically-operated retraction system with a backup crank-operated or wire-pull gear extender.

Utveckling [ redigera | redigera wikitext ]

År 1940 utfärdade Luftministeriet en specifikation på ett jetdrivet flygplan med 14,2 kN dragkraft som skulle kunna ta en last på 680 kg och en totalvikt på 3𧒄 kg. George Carter beräknade att ett sådant flygplan skulle få en toppfart på över 700 km/h och skulle kunna beväpnas med två eller fyra automatkanoner. I augusti 1940 presenterade Carter ritningarna för prototypen och i januari 1941 beslutade Max Aitken att utvecklingen av Meteoren skulle ges högsta prioritet. Månaden efter fick Gloster en beställning på tolv stycken prototyper (senare ändrat till åtta). I juli 1941 fick de även en avsiktsförklaring angående en beställning av 300 Meteorer. [ 1 ]

I november 1942 stoppades produktionen av Meteor på grund av att Rover, som var en viktig underlevererantör av motorerna, inte klarade av att hålla produktionstakten. På grund av bristen på jetmotorer började Luftministeriet i stället att intressera sig för den enmotoriga Gloster E.1/44. Produktionsstoppet hävdes senare samma år efter att Rolls-Royce tagit över motortillverkningen. [ 1 ]

Den 5 mars 1943 flög prototypen för första gången. På grund av leveransproblemen med motorerna drevs den av två stycken de Havilland Goblin i stället för de tilltänkta Power Jets W.2 . Det första flygplanet med Power Jets-motorer flög 12 juni samma år. Rolls-Royce kom att ta över även Power Jets motortillverkning och fortsatte att producera motorn under licens med namnet Welland. Totalt åtta prototyper med olika motorkonfigurationer byggdes. [ 1 ]

Den 12 januari 1944 flög den första serieproducerade Meteoren. Den var i stort sett identisk med prototypen med undantag för de fyra automatkanonerna i nosen. Den fick beteckningen Meteor F.1. Totalt 300 var beställda, men bara 20 kom att levereras eftersom den senare modellen Meteor F.3 beställdes i stället. På grund av att Royal Air Force inte hade någon tidigare erfarenhet av jetflygplan användes Meteorerna till en början huvudsakligen till prov och utbildning. Först i juli 1944 sattes de in i stridande tjänst. [ 1 ]

Rolls-Royce och Power Jets samarbete ledde fram till den mer pålitliga och kraftigare motorn Rolls-Royce Derwent som kom att användas i alla efterföljande versioner av Meteor varav den första var Meteor F.3. De kraftigare motorerna innebar inte bara högre toppfart, de innebar också problem, framför allt med chockvågor i hög fart. Chockvågorna orsakades främst av de raka vingarna. Planerna på att förse Meteor med svepta vingar i stället lades ner på grund av kostnadsskäl och i stället kortades vingarna helt enkelt av med 43 cm på varje sida. De kortare vingarna gav högre toppfart men lägre stighastighet, lägre topphöjd och högre landningshastighet. Framförallt den höga landningshastigheten var ett problem för piloter vana med propellerdrivna flygplan. Andra förbättringar var förstärkt flygkropp och tryckkabin. Den versionen fick beteckningen Meteor F.4. Den flög första gången 17 maj 1945, tio dagar efter Tysklands kapitulation. Krigsslutet innebar att Royal Air Force behov av nya jaktflygplan nu var mycket mindre och det ledde till att de flesta nytillverkade F.4:orna gick på export för att förbättra Storbritanniens ekonomi som drabbats hårt av kriget. Bland exportkunderna fanns Argentina, Nederländerna och Danmark. [ 1 ]

Nästa version av Meteor var en tvåsitsig skolversion. Trots nackdelar som avsaknad av beväpning, tryckkabin och fullständig instrumentering tillverkades över 650 stycken Meteor T.7. Behovet var stort eftersom nästan inga piloter hade någon tidigare erfarenhet av jetflygplan. [ 1 ]

I takt med att andra, mer avancerade jetjaktflygplan togs i tjänst beslutade Gloster att skapa en så modern version av Meteor de kunde och fortfarande dra nytta av en befintlig produktionslina. Flygkroppen förlängdes för att ge plats för mer bränsle och för att slippa den barlast som tidigare modeller haft för att ballansera vikten av de fyra automatkanonerna i nosen. Det visade sig dock att med den längre flygkroppen kunde tyngdpunkten hamna för långt bak efter att ammunitionen till automatkanonerna förbrukats vilket ledde till instabilitet. Detta löstes genom att man bytte ut stjärtpartiet mot stjärten från Gloster E.1/44. Den mest välkomna förändringen var dock införandet av katapultstol. Denna version av Meteor fick beteckningen Meteor F.8. I likhet med F.4 gick många F.8 på export till bland annat Belgien, Brasilien, Nederländerna, Danmark, Australien, Syrien och Egypten. [ 1 ]

Under 1950-talet utvecklades versioner av Meteor för fotospaning och nattjakt. Fotospaningsversionen Meteor FR.9 fick en 20 cm längre nos med en kamera och extra bränsletankar i vingarna. De användes för taktisk spaning och var beväpnade med automatkanoner precis som jaktversionen. En version för höghöjdsspaning utvecklades också. Den saknade beväpning och hade de långa vingarna från F.3 samt två lodkameror i bakkroppen förutom den i nosen. Nattjaktversionen som fick beteckningen Meteor NF.11 utvecklades i samarbete med Armstrong Whitworth som tillverkade radarn. Den blev något av ett lapptäcke med den dubbelsitsiga cockpiten från T.7, flygkroppen från F.8, de långa vingarna från F.3 och en helt ny nos med radarn SCR-720. Eftersom radarn upptog hela nosen flyttades automatkanonerna till vingarna utanför motorerna. I takt med att radartekniken utvecklades förlängdes nosen ytterligare för att ge plats åt den amerikanska radarn AN/APS-21. Den längre nosen gjorde det nödvändigt med en större fena. Trots det hade flygplanet en tendens att zickzacka i takt med radarantennens svepande rörelser. Denna version av Meteor fick beteckningen Meteor NF.12. Det byggdes även en version med ännu längre nos, Meteor NF.14. [ 1 ]

Några Meteorer modifierades för marint bruk med fällbara vingar, landningskrok och katapultkrok. Dessa användes enbart för utprovning och utbildning då Royal Navy valde Sea Vampire framför Meteor.

Researchers Say King Tut’s Dagger Was Made From a Meteorite

In 1925, three years after discovering Tutankhamen’s largely intact tomb in the Valley of the Kings near Luxor (ancient Thebes), the English archaeologist Howard Carter found two daggers hidden in the folds of material wrapped around the pharaoh’s mummified body. In the wrappings on Tut’s right thigh, he found an iron blade with a decorated gold handle ending in a round crystal knob, encased in an ornate gold sheath decorated in a pattern of feathers, lilies and the head of a jackal. The second blade, found near Tut’s abdomen, was of gold.

The iron dagger instantly attracted attention from archaeologists. Iron was still relatively rare in the Bronze Age, and was considered even more valuable than gold. Though ancient Egypt was rich in mineral resources𠅌opper, bronze and gold were in use since the fourth millennium B.C.—the earliest references to iron smelting in the Nile Valley date to much later, during the first millennium B.C. Most archaeologists agree that the handful of iron objects that have been found from Egypt’s Old Kingdom (third millennium B.C.) were probably produced from meteoric metal, a substance the Egyptians of Tut’s era reverently called “iron from the sky.”

Earlier examinations of the iron dagger found in King Tut’s tomb in the 1970s and 1990s probed the possibility that its blade came from a meteorite. Their findings were inconclusive or controversial, at best. Recently, however, a team of Italian and Egyptian researchers took advantage of new technology—specifically a technique called portable X-ray fluorescence spectrometry—to take another look. According to their findings, published this week in the journal Meteorites and Planetary Science, the blade’s composition of iron, nickel and cobalt “strongly suggests an extraterrestrial origin.” What’s more, it is nearly identical to the composition of a meteor found in the seaport city of Marsa Matruh, 150 miles west of Alexandria.
