The World's Loudest Airplane?

See - and hear - for yourself at Oshkosh
The owner/builder of a one-of-a-kind monoplane called the Starjammer claims that the aircraft's custom, built-in sound system can create sounds as loud as 200 decibels, which if accurate would make it the world's loudest airplane ever. Louder than Concorde was, louder than a Space Shuttle. Elgin Wells, aerobatic performer and accomplished musician and composer from Atlanta, Georgia, built the Starjammer over the course of 14 years incorporating six speakers, including police siren speakers, which play music he composes to accompany his aerobatic performances. Wells says his system pushes 1,000 watts of power through the onboard speakers.

Post of the Week!

Matthew Long raised a question in the Homebuilders forum on Oshkosh365 the other day that's sparked an interesting discussion touching on just about everything from aircraft design and development to tort reform and the Bureau of Labor and Statistics. Matthew's question was "What's EAA doing to bring down the cost of light aviation?" Matthew suggests that the LSA movement isn't succeeding in making flying more affordable: "With your typical LSA going for as much or more as a new Porsche, the Sport Pilot category seems not to have made a big dent in the cost of flying." What do you think?

Beware of the Swarming Robots
Beware of the Swarming Robots Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania have developed a way to put quad-rotor flying robots to work. The team has produced a video that shows these flying robots picking up items with their claws and then dropping them. They also can work in formation to pick-up larger objects. Watch the video to see how many quad-rotors it takes to screw in a light bulb.

TIMELESS VOICES OF AVIATION: TED CRICHTON
Timeless VoicesTheodore “Ted” Crichton enlisted in the U.S. Army in June, 1945. He served briefly as an aircraft mechanic before receiving an appointment to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, New York in 1946. Ted was accepted into newly formed U.S. Air Force to begin pilot training after graduating from the Academy in 1950. He flew B-25s stateside before joining the nuclear weapons equipped 47th Bombardment Wing flying B-45s out of Royal Air Force Station Sculthorpe in the UK. After returning stateside in 1956, Ted flew B-66 and B-58 bombers before joining the 817th Troop Carrier Squadron, 315th Air Division flying C-130s in support of combat operations in Southeast Asia. From 1963 to 1967, Ted flew supply missions from Okinawa into South Vietnam, as well as some unique Forward Air Controller/Flare missions at night over the Ho Chi Minh Trail in which C-130s dropped magnesium flares over the trail to illuminate targets for bomb strikes. After the Vietnam War, Ted served in various staff positions, including squadron commander, wing commander, and vice-commander of the Twenty-first Air Force. He retired from the service in 1980 with the rank of Brigadier General. Ted has been a long-time EAA volunteer with warbird operations during AirVenture. Watch the video

Where Are You Flying This Weekend?
There are
63 fly-ins and events this weekend in the EAA Events Calendar. Find one near you or add your event!

Q & A: 
Question of the Week
For EAA Information Services

My wife and I both want to get LSA certificates and aircraft. Can we use our LSA aircraft to flight train for GA ticket, with a CFI, or must we use GA aircraft?

Answer: You and your wife may use your LSA to obtain all of your training through the Private Pilot level, if the aircraft is properly equipped. If that is your goal, then you need to obtain your training from an instructor that is qualified to train to the Private Pilot level from the beginning, otherwise you would have to repeat the hours of dual training given by an instructor that is only qualified to instruct to the Sport Pilot level.
