Can't Wait For Heaven Pt2
|"What this tells me is that any of us are at
risk of making a poor decision in an emergency situation. I never say
"That could never happen to me" when I see this. Instead, I remind
myself to remember to keep the airspeed up, stay coordinated, and even
choose to damage/destroy a plane on landing if that's what is necessary
to stay in controlled/coordinated flight"
~~Jackie B in an OZ Report thread
still refrain from flying in the Canadian
national parks until specific park permissions are arranged)
It is essential that no one fly in any national park as that act could very likely burn that park for our sport and we would be banned before we even get an opportunity to make our case with the Local Superintendent.

A NEW NATIONAL POLICY!
Team Challenge in Tennessee
Dockweiler or other beach: Roofing plastic set to run
upon. Try it. Anchor it. Stretch it; have bonded a stick at each end. Bridle
the stick and tauten the sand-anchor that is buried; no stake. Use for FLG
into the wind; this opens up many wide-soft-sand beach areas for FLG. Traction
of feet on the matte surface. Also, this can provide an alternate landing
surface for training.
Sand bags cost labor that could be exercise.
Turbine wind ... to pump sea water to potable-water makers. Pump water to wet dry sand. Pump water to misting on hot beach day; mist will cool.
Wind turbine to pump sea water to wet the sand upon which set the roofing plastic for running.

Ever" Human-Powered Ornithopter Flight
Students at University of Toronto make claim. "The Snowbird Human-Powered Ornithopter was designed and constructed by a team of students from the University of Toronto. On August 2nd 2010 it sustained level flight for 19.3 seconds, becoming the world's first successful human-powered ornithopter. Music by Nicholas Martel and Daniel Gauthier. Visit hpo.ornithopter.net ."
The towing makes analysis of the flapping benefits difficult. How will the FAI handle the questions involved?

GLIDERS OF WORLD WAR II: “THE BASTARDS NO ONE WANTED” BY MICHAEL H. MANION d"The same characteristics that made gliders attractive to the German and Allied forces in WWII are still enticing today. Despite all of the technologies available today, the glider still offers many advantages not found in the helicopter, parachute, or cargo aircraft. The events of 9/11 have sparked a rebirth of unconventional thinking and combat application in US military forces. The glider remains a viable platform for limited, specific missions requiring silence, mass, and surprise."
|Series 4||Delta-Winged Aircraft||1904-1982, n.d.|
|description:||The series holds over 1,000 photographs of delta-wing planes, especially the Me163, the fastest plane of World War II. Many articles (see Box 21) and patent applications (Box 14 and Box 17 are strongest) about the wing Lippisch designed are contained here, too. Additionally, this series contains test results and experimental data (refer to Box 18, Folders 13-29 and all of Box 20).|

SPOT ??? keep the thing within direct line-of-sight
of the sky “Spot needs a clear view of the sky to obtain
a GPS signal and provide the most accurate location information. It is not
reliable indoors, in a cave, or in very dense woods.” It seems like people get
lost in the woods all the time, and they might want a working SPOT, and one
has to wonder how well the SPOT works in other locations like a deep canyon
given this information, as well." I am
wondering if a kytoon could play here. Genre: PLB

Solar-electric assist to 100 m target via ultracapacitor
double-purposing airframe? How are we doing on this target?
LZ quick recharge from solar-energy unit? or HP source unit? Friends or
self exercise to charge base ultracapacitor that then gives charge to give the
100 m AGL launch.
Metal and dielectric are double-purposed as airframe parts doing structural tasks while also doing charge containing.
Biplane hang gliders with advanced materials are on their way back to the hang gliding scene. The biplane hang glider is in contention for being the most successful hang glider format in all of history. Carbon fiber and foam may bring her back.
