Let's Tell Criselda About Aviation

Recommended Posts

Guest zzmikezz

Welcome, CriseldaI've opened this thread in your honor because in your post #33 to this thread http://forums1.avsim.net/index.php?showtopic=257303, your first ever post to Avsim, you said that you hope to learn something about aviation here. I propose that members each tell you at least one interesting thing about the subject. For example ...The Wright Brothers invented the wind tunnel and were in fact the first aeronautical engineers.

If you're going down at night, turn on the landing lights. If you don't like what you see lit up on the ground, turn them back off so you don't have to see it any more...

Ach du lieber! I had not intended this to be a jokes thread! I had intended instead that we provide Criselda with interesting facts such as this one ...Flush riveting was invented by Howard Hughes.or this one ...All theories of lift must reduce to the upward force resulting from the downward acceleration of air.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxIf you insist on telling jokes, kindly tell good ones, such as this one ...Q: How many psychiatrists does it take to change a light bulb?A: One, but it takes a long time -- and the light bulb has to want to change.But if we're going to continue to offer aviation aphorisms (look it up), here's my contribution: Beware the hand that moves before it thinks.

When Reginald Mitchell discovered that the Air Ministry were going to call his fighter design the 'Spitfire', he apparently said: 'that's just the sort of bloody silly name they would choose'.Al

If you're thinking of flying for the airlines some day, pick up "Flying the Line" by Hopkins. Hell, pick up Volume II as well. They're both excellent books.Then, read Fate is the Hunter by Gann. Amazing book about the golden era of flying.
