  1. Following the nose gear collapse, another F-35 had a bird strike
  2. It's already stanced, which is nice I guess
  3. Russia Confirms Indian Pullout From Fifth Gen Fighter Program, Leaves ‘Door Open’
  4. USAF Chief of Staff: Light Attack Experiment is chiefly an international initiative Having green force operate these instead of the USAF is pretty much what Gums was advocating on F-16.net back then. Not going to bother linking Rogoway and his peanut gallery's reactions.
  5. The ROK Navy is considering modifying the Dokdo-class LPHes for F-35B operations
  6. Clear the rotor wash zone of a CH-47, before it clears you
  7. Similar working principles as Starstreak? I wonder how it handles bad weather or extreme heat.
  8. https://news.usni.org/2018/08/14/35796 It's official: the Blue Angels are getting Super Hornets. 9 Es and 2 Fs, with completion of conversion work on the airframes expected to be in December 2021.

  12. Presented without comment:
  13. Doesn't work for me either. I'd like to see how the energy is dissipated. The bulge on the reverse side suggests that it's still pretty concentrated, which would be pretty bad news for one's internal organs anyway...
  14. For whatever reason, the cost estimate for CVN-81 is now at $15.1 billion. Salt from Rogoway and The Drive's peanut gallery here.
  15. In which opposed piston engines are described as some miraculous thing that hasn't caught on for some reason. I'm sure British and Soviet ex-tankers of a certain vintage can say otherwise.
  16. There appears to have been some sort of leak at Roskosmos
  17. http://aviationweek.com/farnborough-airshow-2018/f-35-engine-upgrade-would-enable-directed-energy-weapons Pratt & Whitney's new Growth Option 2.0 package for the F135 has interesting potential benefits:
