C17 Transport Aircraft Taking Off from RAF Brize Norton Featured Print

C17 Transport Aircraft Taking Off from RAF Brize Norton

A Royal Air Force 99 Squadron C17 aircraft taking off from RAF Brize Norton providing air transport assistance to France for the Central African Republic (CAR).
The C17 is capable of rapid, strategic delivery of troops and all types of cargo to main operating bases anywhere in the world, or directly to more temporary forward operating bases owing to its short field capability. The design of the aircraft allows it to carry out high-angle, steep approaches at relatively slow speeds, thus allowing it to operate into small, austere airfields onto runways as short as 3, 500 feet long and only 90 feet wide.
The aircraft can operate into and out of problematic sites such as those surrounded by inhospitable terrain or made difficult by adverse weather conditions. The fully-integrated, electronic flight-deck and the advanced cargo-handling systems allow a basic crew of only two pilots and one air loadmaster to operate the aircraft.
On the ground, the aircraft can be turned in a very small radius and its four Pratt & Whitney engines are fully reversible, giving it the ability to manoeuvre into and out of restricted parking or freight-offload areas at undeveloped strips.
This enables the C-17 to deliver cargo to small airfields with limited parking space in a shorter time, so increasing throughput where time on the ground is kept to a minimum. The C-17 can transport 45, 360kgs of freight over 4, 500 nautical miles whilst flying at heights in excess of 30, 000 feet

E-3D Sentry Aircraft Lands at RAF Waddington

An E-3D Sentry aircraft from 8 Squadron, Royal Air Force lands at RAF Waddington, Lincolnshire.
The Sentry's roles include air and sea surveillance, airborne command and control, weapons control and it can also operate as an extensive communications platform.
The RAF operates seven E-3D Sentry aircraft in the airborne surveillance and command-and-control role. The aircraft are based at RAF Waddington, where they are operated by Nos 8 and 23 Squadrons as the UK's contribution to the NATO Airborne Early Warning and Control Force.
The E-3D also forms one arm of the UK Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance (ISTAR) triad of Sentinel R1, E-3D and Nimrod R1 aircraft. Whilst primarily procured as an airborne early warning aircraft, the E- 3D has been extensively employed in the Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) role.
The E-3D Sentry, known to the RAF as the AEW1, is based on the commercial Boeing 707-320B aircraft, which has been extensively modified and updated to accommodate modern mission systems. Mission endurance is approximately 11 hours (over 5000nmls), although this can be extended by air - to- air refuelling.
The E-3D is the only aircraft in the RAF's inventory capable of air-to-air refuelling by both the American flying-boom system and the RAF's probe-and-drogue method

Wright Model A aircraft flight, 1909

Wright Model A aircraft flight, 1909. US aviation pioneer Wilbur Wright (1867-1912) taking off in a Wright Model A, one of several aircraft built by him and his brother Orville Wright (1871-1948). This flight was one of two that took place on 29 September 1909. On one of the flights, Wilbur piloted the aircraft over New York Harbour and around the Statue of Liberty, seen by millions in a flight lasting less than five minutes. It was part of a celebration of 300 years of New York history. A canoe (seen here) was attached to the aircraft in case of a water landing. This photograph is from the Bain News Service, one of the USA's earliest news picture libraries
