Thanks Dan! 400 degrees per second! Way too much for me! I like much more sedate flying! :lol::lol:

420 degrees per second I have on very good authority from this pilot :-)

Fast enough to cause motion blur around the rolling axis even at 1/500 sec !

Needs to work the stick pretty hard too!


(I know these are not belly shots, but I couldn't find any suitable ones)

Are those visual pitch reference indicators on the wing tips?

Yes. They're used as an external attitude reference.

Also note the piece of string... used to indicate which direction the plane moving, especially useful throughout tail slide manoeuvres and other low speed edge of flight envelope situations.

Canadian National Air Surveillance Program (NASP) de Havilland Canada Dash 7, C-GCFR, ready to land in YYT. Judging by the livery, I'm thinking the mission is more deterrence than stealth.

And for fun, found its route today on Planefinder. Not sure what it was they were surveilling - other than me.

Thanks for the comment Fotoi!
The B-52 flew from it's Barksdale airbase in Louisiana to London Ontario, did 3 flybys and then returned to base on both days of the airshow.
It worked out to about 6 hours flying time per day for the the crew to do about a 15 minute flyby session.
I hadn't seen a B-52 in the air before so I sure appreciated the USAF participation and the air crew flying in each day.

The B-52!! Are there more than one version of the B-52 plane? You say this one here is the Stratofortess.

The company I used to work for has in the past turned up a few hundred wheel hubs for the B-52. Those were massive size hubs for a very large tire.

We only did one side of the hub, another company did the machining for the other side, but I have no idea what company that would have been or where they would have been located.

B-52H is the current and only flying version, there used to be earlier versions that had improvements as they moved forward to today.

They say they have at least another Twenty years life in them - Amazing.

Some stuff.

As the joke goes, "This isn't your grandfather's Air Force, but it might be his plane." Maybe they'll update that to "great grandfather".
