Focke-Wulf Fw190a-8 built, excess model putty sanded off, panel lines re-etched, now this terrifying bird is ready for painting. Arranged the Focke-Wulf and the Hawker Typhoon around the windmill to give a general idea of how the finished dogfight diorama should look like. Need to do a few more concept art sketches first. #Airfix #WWIIModels #WorldWarII #WWII #WorldWar2 #WW2 #Luftwaffe #FockeWulf #FockeWulf190 #FockeWulf190A #Fw190 #Fw190A8 #RoyalAirforce #RAF #HawkerTyphoon #FighterPlane #WW2FighterPlane #Warbird #Eindhoven #Holland #OperationMarketGarden #OperationMarketGarden #WW2History #Aeronautics #Aviation #ScaleModel #172scale #Hobby

🔥👌🏻 amazing shot to the individual who captured it. #runway #aviation #aeronautics

In 1989, the 100 Series Shinkansen bullet train could travel at speeds up to 268kph (167mph). However there was one major issue! The high speed bullet train generated a ‘Sonic-Boom’ 💥 when exiting tunnels at high speed. The noise was so unpleasant that it disrupted residents withing a half a kilometre radius of trainline🚊 . . .  A team of engineers was formed with the goal to solve the problem of the sonic boom 💥 At the time the team didn’t know it, but they had a secret weapon... . . Eiji Nakatsu, General Manager of the Technical Development Deptartment was a keen Bird watcher. Eiji studied the bio mechanics, aesthetic and functional designs of birds 🦅 and wanted to apply these design theories to developing a more efficient train 🚂... . . The feathers of Owls 🦉 were studied and their streamline shape were applied to the redesign of the pantograph – This is the conductor that connects to the electrical wires above the train. . . The under-belly of a penguin 🐧 is sleek giving the creature the ability to glide across ice. Again Biomimicry design theories were applied to the redesign of the supporting shaft of the pantograph. . . Finally, Eiji noted that the Kingfisher bird could break through a body of water 💧 generating very little disturbance. So his engineering team redesigned the nose of the train to Biomimic the form of the kingfisher beak. . . The debut test of the bullet train re-design in 1997 demonstrated the train to be 10% faster, it used 15% less electricity and stayed under the 70dB noice limit in residential areas. . . This was a fantastic example of Biomimicry: The imitation of the models, systems, and elements of nature for the purpose of solving complex human problems. . . BIOMIMICRY : A term coined by Janine M  Benyus in 1997.

And some headshots 😉
A few aerial shots from last weekend's Aviation Nation. 🛩️
L'Airbus A310 ZERO-G est un avion de type A310-304 de la société Airbus aménagé en laboratoire de recherche scientifique, spécialement adapté pour l’apesanteur. Il est utilisé pour réaliser des vols paraboliques permettant d'atteindre jusqu'à 22 secondes d'impesanteur. Exploité par la société Novespace, filiale du Centre national d'études spatiales (CNES), cet appareil est basé sur l'aéroport de Bordeaux Mérignac. #zerog #airbusa310zerog #airbusa310 #airbus #apesenteur #sky #skylover #prouesse #technicity #acrobatics #acrobatico #parabolic #volparabolique #impesanteur #pesenteur #apesenteur #volasensation #parabolique #novespace #pilotes #aviators #pilot #pilotefligth #aerostagram #aeroportdebordeaux #aeronautics #avionphoto #planeslovers

I think this looks beautiful, breathtaking, picturesque. What adjectives would you use to describe this? —�—�—�—�—�—�—�—�—�—�—� Major Fireball Meteor The sky glows with soft pinkish colors of fading twilight in this serendipitous mountaintop vista. Taken in subfreezing temperatures, the thoughtfully composed photo shows snowy, rugged peaks seen from a mountain pass on November 14. Below lies the village of La Villa, Alta Badia in Italy's Dolomite Alps. Above the nestled village lights, the constellation Ursa Major hangs over the northern horizon. But most stunning is the intense fireball meteor. It was captured during the camera's exposure by chance as it flashed east to west across the northern horizon, under Ursa Major's familiar Big Dipper asterism. In fact, sightings of this major fireball meteor were widely reported in European skies, the most reported fireball event ever for planet Earth's American Meteor Society and the International Meteor Organization. The meteor's measured track over Germany is consistent with its origin near the active radiant of November's Taurid Meteor Shower. Taurid meteors are associated with dust from Encke's comet.
