Mustard YT channel - Bartini VVA-14

(1/3) > >>

Weaver:
Just found a good Youtube channel called Mustard (guess what I was searching for...). The guy does educational videos about aircraft and other tech issues, with some really slick CGI to show never-built, or rarely photographed, types in operation.

This video on Hovertrains should interest Kit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qUXEFj0t7Ek

Here's one on the Convair 990A: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CHw3nRjj5xc

and here's one on the US SST: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y91Zr480Tn4

Some joker took a screenshot of his Boeing 2707 flying overhead at a great height, and sent it to a US aviation journal as a snap taken near Area 51. Embarrassingly, they didn't recognise the type and put a call out on Twitter for help...  ;D

Nils:

I watched the hovertrain one at some length, very interesting indeed.

Sadly he's a long way out with his description of the wheel/rail interface. He totally ignores Prof. Alan Wickens work at BR in the late 60s, early 70s (he was my ultimate boss there) which was the REAL reason why railways are able to run at much higher speeds nowadays, and one reason why the UK Government backed the APT over the Tracked Hovercraft project.

It wasn't that the coning angles were lessened, it was a totally different shape to the wheel profile.

Sorry, off on a hobby-horse there.........

If you'd like to write a short account of that, I'd be more than happy to post it as a comment or send it to him on Twitter for you if you don't have logons to do that yourself.

I'll PM something to you H, in  a day or so I expect as I'm PSRing and painting like crazy just now.
