Only if he's willing to ignore the restrictions of his operating limitations, which limit him to a 50 NM radius around Valdosta....Maybe he's bringing it to Oshkosh...
Not quite consecutive. Every other day for the last three flights.The last three flights (over six hours total) were done on consecutive days.
The first engine DID dematerialize and transmogrify!!!!!!Only if he's willing to ignore the restrictions of his operating limitations, which limit him to a 50 NM radius around Valdosta.
There is always the chance that he'll know enough to apply for a modification to the OL's, or that he WON'T know enough to pay attention to his OL's.
I'd put the latter probability at 13.6%, the former probability at 4.8%, and the probability of it not going to OSH or the west coast under it's own power at 81.599999%, with a 0.000001% probability of it dematerializing and transmogrifying into a wolverine.
1/ Only one airframe exists and is not presently available.Is this a too simple answer to the Raptor saga;
1/ put a known engine onto the Raptor Airframe
2/ put the AUDI Engine on a known airframe
and run parallel test programs, and keep the one that works our best !!!! ( or just junk the whole project )
I think what he means is to put the engine on a different type of aircraft, either a kit/experimental or even something certified, and use that JUST to test and develop the engine. Then take a certified engine and put it on Raptor, and use that to JUST test and develop the airframe.1/ Only one airframe exists and is not presently available.
2/ If it was viable someone else would have done it.
I looked for about 10 min.....and could not find any pictures of current aircraft conversions......I did not look at all the links....so maybe someone can post a link of a recent conversion of theirs and exactly what they are selling.
