  • BETRAYAL: Clinton, Castro & the Cuban Five - Skymaster Forum
    Read how the USAF F 15s sitting ready on the runway at Homestead AFB were ordered to taxi back to the hangar and shut down rather than being authorized to take off and intercept the Cubans even while two Cuban MiG 23 jet fighters flew north crossed the ADIZ and came to nearly within sight of Key West as they hunted a third Skymaster which ultimately escaped Learn how Cuba s Queen of Spies had successfully infiltrated one of America s highest intelligence agency and literally taken control over reporting on events and the situation in Cuba and using her position as the Senior Cuba Briefer to carefully manage and skew the intelligence to reflect Castro s own carefully written script And learn how her role in the shootdown of the Brothers to the Rescue Skymasters was her final undoing resulting in her capture and conviction as a spy The book is timely for America as the case of the Cuban Five including those captured and now in jail on convictions for conspiracy to commit murder in the case of Brothers to the Rescue and aiding and abetting in these very events is currently being sent before the U S Supreme Court Further the Cuban Government officials are now pleading to the Obama Administration for their release requesting them in trade for political prisoners held in Cuba as part of Cuba s strategy to improve relations with the U S A Carefully researched over 13 years and written over two years BETRAYAL is fully and completely documented It is a story that is simply incredible and a well documented piece of Skymaster History And finally the authors both have extensive time in flying search and rescue missions in the Skymaster and many SOAPA members may remember that Thomas Van Hare was the keynote speaker at SOAPA 2008 in Kalamazoo Buy the Book Today http www amazon com exec obidos IS oricwingscomA Visit the Website and HEAR the shootdown turn on your speakers http www mattlawrencebooks com NON FICTION TRUE CRIME AND ESPIONAGE Seagull Tango View Public Profile Find all posts by Seagull Tango 2 12 19 14 10 29 AM hharney Rough Surface Join Date Jul 2002 Location Michigan 08C Posts 1 640 http www nbcmiami com news local S 286156141 html Herb R Harney 1968 337C I m in the front of the aircraft to prevent it from committing suicide hharney View Public Profile Visit hharney s homepage Find all posts by hharney 3 03 17 16 08 02 PM hharney Rough Surface Join Date Jul 2002 Location Michigan 08C Posts 1 640 From Seagull Tango Tom Please go to the link and sign the petition My friends Please SHARE and join me in signing a petition for justice filed today with the White House We need 100 000 signatures by April 16 The President will be traveling to Cuba and this presents an ideal opportunity to seek justice for the murder of Carlos Costa Armando Alejandre Jr Mario

  • Turbos altitude advantage - Skymaster Forum
    4 02 29 16 09 52 AM YankeeClipper Registered User Join Date Apr 2013 Location CT Posts 32 Thanks for some thoughtful and informative replies gentlemen So far as the mission goes again I m a neophyte so I ve had trouble with that term Perhaps I think that means the occasional trip from CT to pick your destination within 3 hours Skymaster time Maybe the occasional grass strip which I ve read these aircraft are comfortable with 2 4 adults and light luggage Don t forget the dog 45 I ll never knowingly put myself and pax into harm and am willing to advise them that the trains are a lovely ride but sometimes you find yourself in a surprise TAFs be damned So may I ask have you found yourself in the scenario described where you were cruising along and suddenly needed to climb over nasty weather be it 337 or other a c What increase in altitude did it require and from what original YankeeClipper View Public Profile Find all posts by YankeeClipper 5 02 29 16 03 23 PM n86121 bigcheese Join Date Nov 2003 Location Potomac Airfield Posts 67 RSTOL Turbo 337 Good afternoon I ve had a Robertson STOL turbo for decades I transitioned in a non turbo ages ago What I recall of the non turbo was that once you got a bit hot and heavy it took quite awhile to get from 7 000 to 9000 I wasn t looking for a turbo per se but in retrospect it was the right choice With the RSTOL the unofficial trick is to leave 1 3 full wing flaps down and pull it BACK to 120 mph That way I can still see over the schnozz VX is 70mph and vy 85mph but I like to see where I am going AND give the engines a little more cooling airflow With 1 3 flaps full power and 120 mph 2 000 fpm can readily done It bogeys up There are a few advantages with turbos 1 You can climb from anything to anything with almost constant climb rate Even on the east coast in summer it s nice to quickly pop above 10k convection layers common around Wash DC 2 Ballpark one picks up around 10 mphs per 5 000ft climbed So whatever your power setting gives you at sea level at 10 000 add about 20 mph etc 3 Advice from a T210 pilot who used to fly Aspen CO all year including winter When I asked him what was most important in icing his boots his heated prop He replied turbo s because icing is always just a few thousand feet thick so you can always climb out of it quickly After that he said heated prop which the REAR prop is always as it is right in line with rear turbo exhaust Keeps from icing and gives that famous Skymaster blaaaaat sound as rear prop chops exhaust 4 At higher altitudes even low teens the turbos make the aircraft quite fast 5 Single engine service ceiling for my turbo no pressurized is 16 800 ft 6 For just spooling around down low low power scenic cruise the turbos are just along

designed to be turbocharged and that will result in much faster engine wear Resolve JB78382 View Public Profile Find all posts by JB78382 7 02 29 16 11 47 PM YankeeClipper Registered User Join Date Apr 2013 Location CT Posts 32 JB I m by no means an expert here but have copious amounts of reading on the subject behind me It seems that at the hand of a well trained and disciplined pilot tbo and greater is just as achievable in a turbo Some have argued more so under those conditions But was your previous owner in that category Therein But that really stands to reason right After all what is the turbo that is rarely boosted past 30 Warmer air at eternal sea level More maintenance given the additional parts yet still the owners who switched almost never in my reading bemoan the expense

Date Sep 2013 Location Canada Posts 86 Many TSIO 360 s go past TBO as we know Also they make them better now eg my SFRM TBO is 1600 hrs Engine management planning however as we know should be in the pre descent checklist so that you can plan ahead and then ahead some more so that the standard 1 per min MP reductions can happen etc The other thing is not shutting down for 5 mins until after touchdown to reduce coking As we know sometimes ATC mismanages the flow and leaves you too high luckily the Skymaster has plenty of drag with the gear out 140 KIAS ext n but 130 KIAS I have been told is much easier on the gear so I do that means sometimes you have to pull up slightly start extension continue descent and also the 1st notch of flaps is 165 KIAS which is really useful My acft has speedbrakes useful sometimes esp in long descents from the high teens in winter All this to say that even though it is just a Skymaster with the TSIO s you still need to manage power and speeds really much like

  • Turbos altitude advantage - Page 2 - Skymaster Forum
    as a turbo Other types of convective activity comes in many shapes and sizes and many cannot be topped by any type of Skymaster In respect to the TSIO 360 s longevity I agree that ANY engine will reach TBO more easily in the hands of a smooth pilot and not a throttle jocky especially the turbo d versions Also it is critical for a turbo d engine to be set up or tuned correctly to live long and be happy Items such as unmetered fuel pressure metered fuel pressure turbo wastegate settings and spark advance need to be adjusted correctly in relation to each other and require a mechanic with the experience and the tools for the job But getting to the point It sounds to me like you are looking to buy your first Skymaster If that is the case and most of your flights are not long or mission critical I think you would be happy with a nicely equipped normally aspirated version Save a little on maintenance costs now and get to know the breed Trade up later if you feel the need Tom L Wright Aboutwright View Public Profile Find all posts by Aboutwright 17 03 14 16 11 26 AM YankeeClipper Registered User Join Date Apr 2013 Location CT Posts 32 Thanks Tom Yes I m looking into my first Skymaster but the mission isn t entirely known in advance I suppose What I do know is that it will be recreational only as in flying to recreational destinations I imagine the vast majority of trips will be single hop 2 4 hour trips Maybe once a year I ll go beyond that but more likely a tri ennial kind of event One concern is where I often see people get into trouble they
