    Short Jokes III - Worst in the Series

    How to start a loooong discussion : Out of the so many answers, this one gets my vote : So, you say he's wearing a belle? I bet they're happy together. *edit music references: Michelle, by the Beatles (Michelle, my belle) and the Turtles, "So Happy Together".

    Warthog Advice, Please?

    https://www.researchgate.net/publication/299955550_Air_Force_Academy_Contributions_to_Development_of_the_A-10_Drooped_Leading_Edge_Modification https://www.researchgate.net/publication/299955549_A-10_Wing_Leading_Edge_Effects_on_Engine_Stability_Part_1_-_Analysis_and_Evaluation_of_Wing_Leading_Edge_Configurations https://www.researchgate.net/publication/299958597_A-10_Wing_Leading_Edge_Effects_on_Engine_Stability_Part_2_-_Identifying_Total_Pressure_Distortion_Sources_and_the_Effects_on_EngineAirframe_Integration http://airvectors.net/ava10_1.html The engine position does have its liabilities. At high angles of attack, the wing can block airflow to the engines, and so a short leading-edge slat was installed between the fuselage and the main gear fairings, the slat opening automatically under hydraulic control at high angles of attack. The YA-10As uncovered the problem, and were fitted with fixed slot surfaces as an interim fix. Apparently the use of the leading-edge slats introduced another drawback in turn, in that it reduced indications to the pilot that the aircraft was going into a stall. A small strip was attached to the leading edge of each wing to ensure that the descent into a stall wasn't so abrupt.

Although the comment is in French (an English translation will follow) we hope you'll appreciate the building and enjoy the visit. http://master194.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=102059 For those who wish to share the building in process, you may follow it here : http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/topic/222165-my-small-air-base-148/& Cheers.

    Airbus A300B4 question

    This is what Turbofan was looking for. Now, did A300B2 have a similar wing root or a sharp edge ? That was my question earlier. Few pictures of early A300 show the wing root, and unfortunately not as close as the one seen above) : http://www.airliners.net/photo/Air-Inter/Airbus-A300B2-1C/2611356/L https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/6748266 https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/185777 https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/181129 https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/181127 Note that A310 Krüger flap is different. By the way, does anyone have a clue to this (# 15) : Cheers. AV O

    Airbus A300B4 question

    In fact four, including the retracting leading edge folding part of the flap and the small slat section. Raw 2 and 20 of the selection below (with a 5 image/row display) : https://www.google.fr/search?q=A300-600+slats&client=safari&rls=en&dcr=0&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwikoeyahofZAhWLPFAKHTNUAbAQsAQIMA&biw=1449&bih=871#imgrc=lcC2wrN7uE0pNM: The curved or compound shape is visible at the wing root as is the small triangle coming out of the fuselage.

    Airbus A300B4 question

    I guess Turbofan is talking about the wing to body junction of the leading edge. Was it sharp like on the A300B2 : http://www.airliners.net/photo/Iran-Air/Airbus-A300B2-203/4008087/L or compound like this picture suggests : https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/7979152?

    PAS A310 Discussion

    There is a discussion going on elsewhere about the A300-600. It raises a question to me. I have been looking a long time for this issue, but cannot find any diagram showing it. We all know that both A300-600 and A310 share the same back fuselage. Would anyone have a diagram showing the shape difference of both stabilizers : A300 and A310/300-600 . Though it is subtle in span, what about its chord and area ? And also both wings shapes of the A300 and A310 as the latter wing is much different. A300 and A300-600 wings have indeed some differences (flaps, no outboard aileron, no wing fence, wingtip fence ) but not in the overall shape and area. Not just a general drawing, but rather something like a superposition or colour overlap. Thank you. Cheers. AV O
