Congrats Adrian!

Tam. I went through the Air & Space museum a couple of days ago. Among other things they had a nice display of older plane engines. The engines in those fighters were HUGE!

I spent Canada day hanging out in Ottawa with the kids. We watched the fireworks from the Museum of Civilization (across the Ottawa river from the parliament buildings).

Our Air and Space museum (unsurprisingly) also has a nice display of old plane engines. This one is my favorite: http://airandspace.si.edu/collections/artifact.cfm?object=nasm_A19781379000

Go big or go home.

Yup, they were huge, heavy & complicated & they ran them to their limits when required - amazing engineering actually.

The big radial engines in fighters like the Thunderbolt & Sea Fury resulted in a fat front end, whereas the V12 types in the Spitfires & Mustang type fighters made for a much more slender profile.

The beauty of today's turbines is there is really just one big smoothly moving part instead of pistons, cams, valves, crankshafts, superchargers, etc, etc all trying to vibrate the whole mess apart. The trouble is, jets like to be at very high altitudes in thin air to make them efficient fuel consumption wise. That's probably why we don't have them in our normal land bound vehicles yet...

I'm late. However for my friends from down south who brought us well wishes, I return them to you with a gift. A well known little recipe for Canadian Lasagna

Chrysler did try Turbines back in the early 60's.

The turbine in cars story is fascinating.

Thanks to all of you, my geographical proximity to BC - and, I assume, my correct pronunciation of "sorry" - I'm 90%!
