Maiden Jet Crash

Discussion in 'R.I.P. (Rest In Pieces) Ol' Plank.' started by garlandk, Oct 24, 2015.

  1. I may be wrong but I don't know of any turbines that will go from idle to 120,000+ RPM in under a second. Two or three second spool up times are considered pretty fast for most turbines. Some older turbines are much slower than that. Still, just because the turbine is up to speed doesn't mean there is enough airflow over the control surfaces for them to be effective Since there is no prop wash you need to accelerate the entire air frame to a sufficient speed for the controls to be effective. With most jets, a go around takes planning and you need to decide early. Once you touch down, you're pretty well committed.

    It's no cub, thats for sure. Plus they have smaller control surfaces so at slower speeds they are not as responsive. It is an art form for sure.
