Simple maths said it wouldn't work because of something called "fisicks" but he did the work anyway cause he was getting paid to. He designed and manufactured the prototype nose cones.
. Turned out it was all a rooos to scare the ruskies and make them spend time and money on it. We do that a lot, make them waste resources on stoopid crap.

Here's a hint: Some guy named Newton said if you push forward and backward, you don't move.
I believe modern propellers emit bubbles to mask/reduce cavitation

Do you ever tire of reinforcing your profound ignorance regarding every topic on which you choose to comment?

Higgins is Irish. About the furthest from a German surname possible. Higgins is an Irish family name with ancient royal connections. It is an anglicisation of O'hUigin, from the Irish word 'uiginn' meaning Viking.

Irish Surname - Higgins

We have a cool clan sweater, too. Actually, where I picked it up - on Aran Island - it's called a "jumper". Feel free to google that for clarification if it confuses you.

Sorry. My bad - I'll knock it off. Supposed to be a pictures thread.

Cool airplane. I did a little work helping to restore this one for use by Everett Community College in their airplane mechanic program.



These things had a horrible start to their commercial air service. The square windows were the root of the problem - multiple pressurization cycles started cracking the fuselages at the corners of the windows. Several suffered catastrophic failures as a result and went in, killing all on board. The oval windows on the one I worked on were the solution. Tragic story, really.
