Chaplain, it's a Bristol Britannia. Canadair made a freighter version the CL-44 that had a hinged aft fuselage for cargo loading. Flying Tigers operated this type of aircraft out of LAX back in the 1960s.I'm impressed!
What aircraft type/model is that?
Thank you. Asking was easier than me Googling and Googling until I became dizzy.
Flying over the sea is even better, when an engine pulls back it is because you let that prop hit the water.
Well, I guess tht was it then:Here, I "appropiated this" from that knowledgable internet guy.
Induced drag is less when one takes a C130 down low. Wingspan is 132' so somewhere down low at 60-70 feet she will get more efficient.
When an aircraft flies at a ground level approximately at or below the half length of the aircraft's wingspan there occurs, depending on airfoil and aircraft design, an often noticeable ground effect.
Stumpy looking airframe, kind of brings to mind a bobbed deuce and that whole stubby look.This airshow was at Mira Mar in 2008. This is a Low Pass by a rare 747SP. The SP is a short 747 with a tall vertical stabilizer. It was designed to compete against the DC-10 and L-1011, it didn't sell well and only 50 were built.
Gotta love the announcer's enthusiasm. A mixture of the dramatic and paid sponsorship plugs...This airshow was at Mira Mar in 2008. This is a Low Pass by a rare 747SP.
