    F-89 manual material

    Dear Nobi,

    If this works (I may be upload challenged) there will follow some scans from F-89 manual pages. If not, look on your website, I tried to send my E-mail address, so you could contact me if you were interested.

    Best regards,

    Artie Bob

    Nobi,

    I have some pages copied from F-89 manual about 40 years ago. These includes drawings of the exterior as well as images of the cockpit. I also have a few cross sections from another drawing.
    So far it appears my problem is the files are too large to upload to this forum. I have tried to reduce the file size, but the quality is reduced.

    Best regards,

    Artie Bob

    Hi, Nobi .. I think with the help of Dr. Zarkov (see posting on P51D thread) my problem will be solved.

    I can only agree with you on the prevalence of Rhino experts that a newbie (a wet behind-the-ears) could run to for help.... I'm not closing my learning option on software. I'm teaching myself Rhino with the help of Wungwinglow's, yours, Thomas Pliener's tutorials.... Thank for the advice.
    Best regards,

    Muhammad

    I was reading in either the current Smithsonian Air & Space or the one before and there was an amusing article about an F6F Hellcat that was being used as a target drone and it decided to go siteseeing on it's own over sothern California. 2 Scorpions were scrambled to shoot it down and expended all 208 rockets(54 per aircraft) without hitting the Hellcat. The rockets started brush fires damaged a few cars, scared a bunch of people but never touched the hellcat. It eventually made it's way out to sea ran out of gas and crashed.

    Just thought I'd share this bit of trivia with you all. :D

    Something similar happened in Canada a few years back, a research balloon failed to deflate (or whatever means they use to get the instrument package back) and was drifting through the airline's routes over the northern part of Canada and the Atlantic. Two CF-18's were scrambled to shoot it down, and while they expended their 20mm ammo on it, it survived, finally touching down in Finland.

    In all fairness to the Scorpion pilots, the 2.75 inch FFARs were meant to be launched at bomber formations, not a single target the size of a Hellcat.
