25/09/2012 - September 2012 Jet Meet at SCR.

Mike brought his Bristol Siddley Hercules radial engine to the track to play with.

Pictured is the starter motor, apparently it only draws about 200 amps at 30 volts.

Air cooled, no radiators here.
   
A good old fashioned control panel with large handles, straight from Dr Frankenstein.

Engine in motion.
Paul took this front view whilst the engine was running, brave man!
   
He's getting even braver now!
Then it rained, the first time since we started using the track, so I suppose in the words of Mark & Lard - Mustn't Grumble.

The rain only lasted an hour or so and the track started to dry out, bring on the kart's!
   
Lets start of with some static thrust tests, pictured is Richard pulling about 126lbs thrust.

Then Andy had a go and pulled around 124lbs of static thrust.
Then Ian with his Noel Penny 301, this took the scales over the limit.
   
And finally I had a go, lets just say I'm embarrassed at the thrust produced, i'll just get my coat. Bugger!

Kart's lined up.
Cant beat a rear view!
   
Side view of the kart's.
Generally a happy bunch, special guests Mark and Christos.

Time to go for a ride with Chris & Jon, helping with the starting.

16/08/2012 - Gas Turbine Symposium at Cranfield University.

A group photo of the students, guest's and lecturers.

Breathing in whilst having my photo taken. Neil Armstrong himself has had his picture taken in front of this very Pegasus. Being a hero of mine I considered this a worth while photo opportunity.

Ian striking a pose in front of Cranfield University's RB211 display engine.
   

One of the first production Jet Engines that were ever made. Designed by Frank Whittle,
the Power Jets W2/700.

Why oh why do things go wrong when people are watching?
The kart being rebuilt after my demonstration of it's capabilities to some staff and guests at Cranfield University.

1: Will not start.
2: Afterburner pump failure.
3: Circuit breaker failure.
4: Turbo bearing failure.

As I always state:

The probability of failure is directly proportional to the amount of people watching...





04/06/2012 - Justin's House, is the place you want to play!

I was trying to sneak past the Efflux of the engine and guess what, I was caught, only at ground idle as well! (apparently)
