The “potentially catastrophic,” terrifying-to-glimpse-at-even-on-a-radar storm named Hurricane Irma is barreling toward Puerto Rico. Flights are being canceled left and right, but one Delta crew woke up Wednesday morning with a planned trek from New York City to San Juan and said fuck it.

Remarkably, the Delta website shows that Flight 431 landed seven minutes ahead of schedule. As Flightradar24 points out , it’s almost certain to be a quick turnaround. Hopefully the crew can get out fast.

Updated (3:55 p.m.): People normally exit airplanes like morons , but Delta managed to get Flight 431 to the gate, deplaned, boarded for the return flight, and off the ground in 51 minutes. Given the circumstances, not bad, eh?

Electric scooter controllers may have marks and numbers like CT-301A9, CT-302S9, CT-803B3, CT816B9, CT811-B9, CT-611B9, MC-024D-166- Universal PC , …

Atmospheric entry is the movement of an object from outer space into and through the gases of an atmosphere of a planet, dwarf planet or natural satellite.

The Boeing C-17 Globemaster III is a large military transport aircraft. It was developed for the United States Air Force (USAF) from the 1980s to the early 1990s by ...

Atmospheric entry is the movement of an object from outer space into and through the gases of an atmosphere of a planet , dwarf planet or natural satellite . There are two main types of atmospheric entry: uncontrolled entry, such as the entry of astronomical objects , space debris or bolides ; and controlled entry (or reentry) of a spacecraft capable of being navigated or following a predetermined course. Technologies and procedures allowing the controlled atmospheric e ntry, d escent and l anding of spacecraft are collectively abbreviated as EDL .

Atmospheric drag and aerodynamic heating can cause atmospheric breakup capable of completely disintegrating smaller objects. These forces may cause objects with lower compressive strength to explode.

Ballistic warheads and expendable vehicles do not require slowing at re-entry, and in fact, are made streamlined so as to maintain their speed.

Boeing , which merged with McDonnell Douglas in 1997, continued to manufacture C-17s for export customers following the end of deliveries to the U.S. Air Force. Aside from the United States, the C-17 is in service with the United Kingdom , Australia , Canada , Qatar , United Arab Emirates , NATO Heavy Airlift Wing , India , and Kuwait . The final C-17 was completed at the Long Beach, California plant and flown on 29 November 2015. [4]

In the 1970s, the U.S. Air Force began looking for a replacement for its Lockheed C-130 Hercules tactical cargo aircraft. [5] The Advanced Medium STOL Transport (AMST) competition was held, with Boeing proposing the YC-14 , and McDonnell Douglas proposing the YC-15 . [6] Though both entrants exceeded specified requirements, the AMST competition was canceled before a winner was selected. The Air Force started the C-X program in November 1979 to develop a larger AMST with longer range to augment its strategic airlift. [7]

Alternative proposals were pursued to fill airlift needs after the C-X contest. These were lengthening of C-141As into C-141Bs, ordering more C-5s, continued purchases of KC-10s , and expansion of the Civil Reserve Air Fleet . Limited budgets reduced program funding, requiring a delay of four years. During this time contracts were awarded for preliminary design work and for the completion of engine certification. [8] In December 1985, a full-scale development contract was awarded, under Program Manager Bob Clepper. [9] At this time, first flight was planned for 1990. [8] The Air Force had formed a requirement for 210 aircraft. [10]
