Nope.   She's a top secret beastie with technology only available in Sky's world  (He knows exactly where this technology came from.  I'm surprized he hasn't spilled the beans yet...)!

No photos available.

But she's a beastie:

375 feet long, retractable hypersonic wings, 355 span, 138 feet retracted.
The flight decks 70 feet up off the tarmac, and she's 85 feet wide.

Big...BIG zero g pool on deck 1, lots of facilities for all sorts of activities, 40 extra large 4 x 6 foot observation windows, rotate speed is 235 KTS, cruise climb at 485 KTS, nominal cruise at flight level 500 is mach 1.3....weighs in fully loaded at about 750,000 pounds, 8 Rolls Royce Turbofans for conventional operations, each producing 30,000 lbs. of thrust, supplemented by the 8 He-3 nuclear engines, one of which can pump out 200,000 lbs of thrust!

The only thing not big is the flight deck.  Above deck 3 is the engineering deck (off limits to all but red shirted, security cleared personnel), with all the goodies, Sally's home, crew quarters, and the flight deck, which is packed full of goodies, and is about the size of a small bedroom.

It's got great visibility for a flight deck though, 12 windows, has a mini-galley in it (glyn is training to work that), beermeister in the center console (no one needs any special training for that...emergency egress hatch overhead (glyn's also very familiar with that), Sally's right in the middle of the 6 foot wide instrument panel with state of the art glass panels, fly by wire technology...the whole 9 yards.

She's smooth as glass, and of course, the load factor suppression system on decks 1 through 3 will limit loads to 1 g no matter what we do on the flight deck...which is the only way Lilly would come aboard!


Imagine the view out those big windows when we light off the He-3 at 50,000 feet and scoot toward orbit, with the nose pitched up 50 degrees, and everyone just sitting back like they were in a recliner watching the earth's surface shrink below!

We of course, will be pulling about 2.75 g on the flight deck during this, but we think that's fun, especially with a couple cold ones in the belly!


...glyn may not entirely enjoy that, but we're getting him primed to take it!


Our "walk around" inspection is done in a truck (it's a drive around).  It takes us several minutes ro walk to the flight deck from level 1...but we have a really cool elevator located about mid ship that'll boot us up topside in a matter of seconds, circumventing the 85 step spiral staircase!

We've recently changed our plans to utilize runway 17/35 at EDW for this baby...since we had such a long roll out after landing last week

(SAL:  "Yea...about 4 miles, what the hell anyway with that landing speed!").

Posted Image ...she gave me that look again.  Damn, I've gotta behave when she's around!

17/35 is the longest runway in the world, at around 39,000 feet (roughly 7 statute miles form end to end).  I could let glyn land her on that one and we'd be safe!!!!!!

:)

Ready to report to FLT Deck D. Promised a full report on my Titanic experience but haven't had much time to give it. It was a very humbling thing. It started with suitcases and ended with the contents of suitcases and little bios of the owners who didn't make it. The rooms in between contained so many artifacts brought up from the wreck. A lot of letters and postcards, many discolored from their time on the bottom but still legible. Money also. The coins cleaned up nicely. There were dishes from all three classes and pots from the galley. One of the oil containers still had some of it's contents, as did some of the wine bottles. One of the passengers was a perfume salesman and it's said the bottles still have the smell of their contents, although I couldn't detect it as everything was in temperature controlled cases. One suitcase was in a case covered with a black cloth to keep light from hitting directly on it. It was very black and deteriorated. I saw one of the ship's whistles, a telegraph that gave the orders from the bridge to the engine room and the box containing the telephone that linked the stern to the bridge. A lot of personal affects. Cosmetic cases, jewelry, shaving equipment including a razor strap ( Gillette began producing the razor and blades as we know them at that time. There was also one of them and some blades.) Clothes, a man's pants and vest daysuit, a patched work shirt displayed with the owner's tools, a bowler hat, a pair of shoes. There was a mirror and hairbrush which no longer had it's bristles. I remember thinking of the scene in the movie when the older Rose picks up the mirror and says it looks just like it did the last time she saw it. I'm sure this mirror didn't look anything like it once did. One of the most known pictures of the wreck in the dishes stacked in rows where the box had deteriorated around it. Those dishes were there. I've been fascinated with Titanic since I read A Night To Remember as a young kid. Watched and read everything I could get ahold of since. So many people lost, so many of their possessions, it's sad. I gave some money to be used towards preserving the artifacts and got a necklace with a cage locket. Inside the locket is a piece of coal brought up from the site with a certificate of authenticity.
Anyway, I'm ready to go here. Let's go rescue psyche before he gets hit by a land rover.
