'Son of Blackbird' Hypersonic Strike Aircraft 1-18-18:
Boeing recently announced a concept aircraft called the 'Son of Blackbird'
hypersonic strike aircraft that could go five times the speed of sound
with apparently nobody sitting in the cockpit. What about the SR-72?

Cooling: Time To Kill The Myth 1-5-18:
In a recent Avweb article, the writer expresses some frustration over erroneous hangar
talk opinions about small aircraft and engines that become accepted and
preached as gospel by mechanics, cfi's and people in positions of responsibility.
Two popular ones that come to mind are "shock cooling" and "oil filler
cap vapor release." I read an article one time about an Alaskan bush pilot
that argued against a performance section in his aircraft POH, said that
aircraft engineers know how to design planes but don't know how to fly
them... what? I guess that kind of sums up the staying power of the myths.
HERE to read a copy of the shock cooling article.
In January 1-4-18:
I thought I'd take advantage of the warm day yesterday (3rd) with a nice
balmy 24°F. Even so, the density altitude was still minus 2,000
feet. That meant over 1,000 feet per minute climb in a humble 160hp Skyhawk.
Some pilots don't like to fly in the winter, but they are missing out on
experiencing the dramatic increase in aircraft performance.
Altitude Minus 4,500 1-1-18:
New Years Eve around 11pm ASOS reported in the remarks section: Density
Altitude minus four thousand five hundred.
