Remembrance Sunday - 2018

This year it takes place on the 11th.

Rather fitting that on the 100th anniversary of the end of the War falls at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.

Just a thought.

Re: Sikorsky S-97 hits 200kts

Sea hornet. I see what you are trying to say but all rotor discs have a retreating blade otherwise they would not be rotating. The two rotors are contra rotating which reduces the problem, perhaps. As I said, it has been a long time... :D :D

Re: CAUTIONARY TALE

A good idea to post such info but probably blowing in the wind. Yesterday whilst waiting at a round-a-bout I watched an approaching car, driver with large phone in left hand, brake heavily, enter the round-a-bout, moved hand to change gear, returned the phone to her ear and exit, missing the bollard...

Re: Sikorsky S-97 hits 200kts

There is a limiting factor due to the speed of the retreating blade tip. The lecture was more than fifty years ago so I have forgotten most of the details There must be someone out there who is more uptodate. Something about the tip stalling and loosing lift... I should have written it down :roll:
