Interesting that the MD-80 has it's gear down during the dump.

Probably to help keep the airspeed low...

I got a shot of it as it started the run and the flaps are down too. Note the retardant on the underside from previous drops.

EDIT: Looking at it a little closer I noticed the slats are also extended.

I believe it has to do with throttle and warning lights...good article on it, the FAA Required it for dropping retardant..
I caught him at a fire, and he was dropping by my house, soon as power came in gear came up..

I would agree. They can go very slow without the gear down and don't really need the gear to be slow. That slow that low will trigger terrain warnings if the gear is not down and landing gear warnings as well if not down, normally on jet liners. This warnings can be very annoying as well.

The slats have to come out first always on an airplane before the flaps. Its to do with how the airplane behaves with relation to Angle of Attack and stall. Thats the very very short explanation. ;-)a

Not as big as the AN124, but this is mine

Obviously not taken by me as I was flying it. A Discus 2. A lovely aircraft and smooth and easy to fly.

2.5m span and all molded GRP construction. I was flying at Rodborough Common, Stroud, last Sunday and enjoying myself.

My ambition for a good while is to grow old disgracefully. So far my wife tells me that I am doing really well!

Thank you Mike. She will fly in anything from a light breeze, say 5 or 6 mph up to 25 or so. The wing joiner, 12" X 3/8" becomes the ballast for the heavier winds. Carbon fibre, 3.5oz, for the light stuff and steel, 8.5oz, for the heavyier winds. Just 5oz but it makes a hell of a difference.

It takes 4 channels because the wing servos are on different channels. That has the advantage of being able the put both ailerons up to slow down, a bit, for landing. It also drops the stall speed due to the extra tip washout. Otherwise the landing can be 'interesting' and quite quick :rolleyes:

That extra washout would have been quite handy some of the time when I was flying quite slowly, because I was getting some quite nasty tip stalls on any tight-ish turns I made at low air speed. I'll have to check it next time out?

This has to be one of my favorites. My 10' Minimoa. A lovely, gracefully gull wing first built in 1932 Germany and flown by Hanna Reitsch at the German international athletics meetings in the 30s. Just rudder, evvator and air breaks and lovely to fly. Traditionally built from a plan. 1/16" balsa planked fuz and balsa built up wing and tail.

Me chucking it off of Selsley Common, Stroud

I forgot to say that a few months back I had problems with the ariel on the tranny. It caused the Discus to head to mother Earth and smacked it up a bit. After the repair and respray I asked one of the other glider guiders if he could cut some decals for me, he has a sticky film cutting machine. So I was able to put my pe4rsonal registration on it

G-JONZ. Smooth or what 8-)8-)8-)

I wonder what the driver was thinking of, or did he/she leave the guide dog at home :rolleyes::rolleyes:

Just a thought? I wonder if they wanted to do a wheel change? If so the heavies (airframe guys) wouldn't need to bend down very much :twisted:
