His confidence is bold, brazen even. He is made of the right stuff.

Twice, his bright red Bell ‘Huey’ 212 has failed to lift a combined ton of Formula E electric racing car and its aluminium tray off the ground at Kulusuk (once damaging the rear wing in the lifting cable), let alone fly it the 40 miles to where it is due to drive on the Greenland Ice Cap.
A world first drive is at risk. So Peter decides to jettison his jockey-sized engineer (putting him in a second helicopter) and a few loose bits from the aircraft; a 70-kilo saving.
Already on the ice is the driver whose car is slung under the Huey, Brazilian Lucas di Grassi. He and Formula E’s founder and CEO Alejandro Agag have been pacing the ice for two hours as news of the gravitational challenges have fed back by satellite phone. “Just getting to the Ice Cap is a challenge. If it was easy, then everyone would have done this,” Agag states. A man with a rifle stands nearby. This is polar bear country. Local villages have bear alarms and most adventurers exploring the Ice Cap do so with Greenland dog-teams, whose sense of danger is acute.
Back in Kulusuk, where the Formula E car has been charged overnight an aircraft hangar, Peter fires up the legendary Huey once again. It’s trademark carpet-beater thwack-thwack rotors drum against the cool summer air and the lines connecting chopper to car tense up. Not half as tense as everyone watching, willing the Formula E to fly. “Oscar Charlie Yankee,” Peter announces over the radio. “Good to go..” Dangling beneath the Huey, the electric racer is airborne. Except the response from the Kulusuk control tower is not so positive. “Charlie Yankee, something seems to have fallen from the car…” Peter acknowledges but decides to plough on. The car is on its way, yet no one knows for sure that it will work if and when it arrives on the world’s second largest ice cap. Only Antarctica’s is bigger.

Второй пилот разбившегося в марте самолёта Андреас Лубитц репетировал снижение лайнера во время предыдущего рейса. Об этом говорится в докладе французского Бюро по расследованию авиакатастроф. «Когда второй пилот был в кабине один, он задействовал кнопку выбора высоты автопилота, уменьшив высоту на 100 футов, то есть, репетировал действие, которое впоследствии привело к катастрофе. Командир экипажа не придал этому значения, поскольку эти действия были совершены, когда самолёт уже приступил к снижению, и это не повлияло на его траекторию». Самолёт авиакомпании Germanwings, совершавший рейс из Барселоны в Дюссельдорф, разбился 24 марта на юго-востоке франции. По результатам анализа данных чёрных ящиков, найденных на месте крушения, был сделан вывод, что причиной катастрофы стали умышленные действия второго пилота. Воспользовавшись тем, что командир временно покинул кабину, он заблокировал дверь направил самолёт вниз.

The co-pilot of the crashed aircraft in March Andreas Lubitz rehearsed reduction of the liner during the previous flight. This is stated in the report of the French Bureau of investigation of aircraft accidents. "When the second pilot was in the cockpit alone, he tapped the button height autopilot, reducing the height of 100 feet, i.e., rehearsed the action that subsequently led to disaster. The commander of the crew didn't realize this, because these acts were committed when the plane has already started to decline, and it did not affect its trajectory". The Lufthansa plane, carrying out flight from Barcelona to Dusseldorf, crashed on 24 March in the South-East of France. According to the analysis data of the black boxes found at the crash site, it was concluded that the cause of the accident become intentional action of a second pilot. Using the fact that the commander has temporarily left the cabin, he locked the door sent a plane down.

The RSSK-1/A Seat Survival Kit from the US Navy/Marine Corps Martin-Baker MK-H7 Ejection Seat- used in the F-4 Phantom. Quite a different Survival Kit set up than the more often seen USAF MK-H7 Phantom CNU-111 seat kit. The USN/USMC kit attaches directly to the lower Mini-Koch Fittimgs, as well as providing attachment lugs to the seat, versus a seperate Lap Belt assy. It also contains a spiral shaped Emrgency Oxygen Cylinder inside (actuated either by ejection and a lanyard tied to the floor, or the manual Emergency Oxygen loop handle just under the occupants left thigh). An inspection window is provided to check the Oxygen Quantity/PSI Gauge- visible as the circle on the Cushiom on the kits left front side.
The Composite Disconnect assy of hoses and cords is protruding from its housing at the back left side of the Kit. A yellow Grasp Knob within the cluster of Oxygen/Com and G-Suit lines allows for quick disconnection of this upper assy from the kit. A lower portion of the composite disconnect would be coming up from the bottom of the cockpit through a hole in the back left side of the MB MK-H7 seat bucket. It supplies all of the electrical comm and Pnuematic Air Supply of the G Suit and Pilots Breathing Oxygen from the aircraft and this lower disconnect assy is retained in the cockpit after ejection. Disconnect is automatically obtained via a steel cable attached to the cockpit floor.
Emergency Survival Supplies and a Self Inflating Dingy/One Man (person) Life Raft, and an Emergency Radio Beacon set are all stored neatly insife this very complex seat sub component. Of course what you see here comes out of the seat with the crewmember at 'Seat/Man Seperation'.
The occupant can manually open the Seat Kit (into an upper half which stays belted to the Torso Harness and a lower kit half which falls away on its own lanyard then dropping and inflating the life raft with an integral CO2 cartridge.

I will be posting some comparison images of both the USN/USMC (RSSK-1/A) and USAF (CNU-111) type Phantom MK-H7 kits as well as the entire USN/USMC versus USAF style of seats soon. #avgeek #phantom #martin-baker #eject #survival #survivalkit #navalaviation #pilot #fly

✅En iyi pilot olmak kolay değildir. ✅Yetenek, yorucu ve uzun soluklu eğitimler, tecrübe, disiplin, cesaret, soğukkanlılık, uçağı limitlerde kullanırken bedeninizin maruz kaldığı muazzam yerçekimi gücü ve onun sizi yıpratması, hayatınızı diğer ekip arkadaşlarına bağlamak. Bunlar bir hava gösterisi yapan takımın pilotlarının ortak özelliklerinden bazılarıdır. ✅İşte bizim takımımız: Türk Yıldızları ✅ Türk yıldızları 8 tane NF-5 tipi savaş uçağını gösterilerde kullanır. ******************************************** 🔴 Bir not: Dünyada 1910 yılından bugüne kadar devam eden uçuş gösterilerinde, tüm tecrübe ve eğitimlere rağmen her yıl en az bir gösteri pilotu hayatını kaybetmektedir. ******************************************** Atatürk'ü Anma, Gençlik ve Spor Bayramı kutlu olsun ********************************************
🇹🇷TURKISH STARS
✅Being the best pilot is not easy. ✅Talent, tiring and long-lasting flight training, experience, discipline, courage, tremendous gravitational force that your body is exposed to when using aircraft at its limits and its wear to you, your life depending on other team members . These are some of the common features of the pilots of the team that made an air show. ✅Here are our team: Turkish Stars ✅ Turkish Stars fly with eight NF-5 fighter planes
🔴Note: regardless of all that training and experience, there has been at least one airshow pilot casualty nearly every year since 1910 in World.
