Propellers In The Water  3-26-15 A company called Tidal Energy LTD. is deploying a water powered turbine in Ramsey Sound off the coast of the UK in early 2015. They'll be testing a 400kW turbine with a view to working up to the full-scale device (1.2MW) in 2016. 
These turbines lay on the bottom of ocean channels using the power of tidal water to generate electricity. Hydrokinetic energy turbines are being set up off the coast of several countries like the UK, China, India and the U.S. "One of the first projects to see deployment by the end of 2015 is the Roosevelt Island Tidal Energy Project (RITE), in which 30 turbines are being installed into New York City’s East River. They will provide 1,050 kW of electricity to 9,500 residents." 

Using Wings for Thrust ?  3-21-15: You normally associate a wing as a part of the aircraft that produces lift when you drag it through the air. Thrust is usually defined as a force that is created by the engine that pushes the aircraft. However, the airfoil shape of a wing doesn't really care if the wing is being pulled through the air, or if the air is blowing by a fixed wing. A company in California determined that a wing is more efficient than a sail for propelling a sail boat. Unlike an aircraft, it appears that a high angle of attack is desired to give them maximum thrust, and by using an automatic trimming device it will automatically swing the wing around to always produce maximum thrust. For a Skyhawk, 15º angle of attack is in the slow speed catagory not to far from a stall but will give you a lot more distance and endurance. Apparently the force on the wing created by a high angle of attack provides the ideal thrust for pushing a boat through the water. So, is the big airfoil they are sticking on the boat acting like a wing or like a propeller blade... looks like a wing to me.

Hangar 5 and Wild Coyotes  3-17-15: Hangar 5 is usually busy with Glen Horne surrounded CLICK HERE TO SEE RAMP PICS AND INSIDE HANGAR 5by airplanes and airplane parts. But if you stop by and he's not there, he just might be off on someCLICK HERE TO SEE GLEN HUNT WILD COYOTES adventure in the north country. Glen's guide service is getting a lot of attention these days and when I sat down to watch the news on WBIN TV the New Hampshire Fish and Game had a show that was featuring various hunters and guides in New Hampshire. They were showing a segment about a guide in New Hampshire that decided to hunt coyote and his name was Glen Horne. They went with Glen on a night hunt and actually show him getting a couple of coyotes. Glen was telling me that he got an invitation to dinner with the governor of Maine. I said that this would be a good time to wear his new tuxedo. He said what tuxedo? 

VFR In March  3-14-15: So I finally updated my old Sony 1.2 megapixel to a Fuji 16 megapixel. I must say it makes quite a difference. I needed a memory card so I stopped at Walmart a got a 32 gig, that's right, gig not meg, memory card for $20. How many pictures can you put on a 32 gig memory card? I believe the camera says over 7,000. I guess I didn't need a 32 gig... oh well. I'm still trying to figure out all the buttons and settings but I guess the one I like the best is "Auto". Technically it's not a movie camera but it does have a HD movie options. So, instead of clicking a bunch of pictures, I pressed the movie button a bunch of times and glued them together in Windows MovieMaker, and yes, added some background music.
