I wonder if this might be Ted's MU-2 replacement
Used to come in occasionally at an Air Force base I was at. I swear when it took off the mains lifted off a few seconds before the nose wheel did, wheelbarrow effect.
It definitely lands nosewheel first ...
I wonder how long they expect that <mostly> C-97 airframe to last?
Forever if it is cheaper to maintain it vs building a new one.
But given the fact that there is at least one newer one ... ???
The new Boeing "Guppy".
Airbus has one too.
That sucker landed at the wrong airport a few years back here in Wichita.
I walked through one at Andrews one time. It's nuts looking when you are standing on the front catwalk with the nose open.
One of those engines at ground idle probably burns as much as both of the MU-2 engines at cruise power...
Long body MU-2 would be the next logical step since the cabin is twice the size of the short body, but that would require either a communal hangar or a box hangar that's 4x the cost of the T-hangar that we currently have. Fuel burn goes up a bit, insurance would be about the same.
Wonder what the demonstrated crosswind component is on that sucker
All hail the puppy guppy!
I saw this fly over/ land in Charleston SC, was pretty amazing.
I've seen a couple of them there at the Boeing factory. Think they bring sections of the 787s built at other locations.
Somehow my wife would find a way to fill this thing up with luggage.
Am I the only one who noticed that they didn't wear any safety glasses or gloves when replacing that windshield?
