Qualcosa è caduto dal cielo ... #-o


A homeowner was left stunned after a large metal chunk of aircraft from an American B-52 bomber plummeted from the skies and landed in her front garden.
The unidentified woman contacted police after hearing a 'loud thud' outside her property in Brailes, Warwickshire, at around 5.30pm last Wednesday.
The villager went outside and discovered the piece had broken from the fighter plane ( :shock: ) and landed in her front garden, narrowly missing her home.
Aviation experts attended the scene and confirmed the debris was part of a giant B-52 bomber which had been based in the county at RAF Fairford, Gloucestershire.

Missione conclusa ... le 'Stratofortezze' rientrano alla base ...
Four B-52s and about 300 airmen returned to Barksdale AFB, La., after a four-week task force deployment to Europe that included training exercises throughout that continent and the Middle East.
The bombers from the 2nd Bomb Wing flew 32 sorties at its deployed home base of RAF Fairford, England, and trained with 13 total partner nations since first deploying last month.

Lamiere ... ondulate ...

Not only is the photo remarkable because it pictures a rare (not catastrophic) engine mishap, but also because another peculiar feature of the B-52 is clearly visible: the so-called “beauty wrinkles” on the front fuselage of the iconic bomber.
Our readers have noticed these “wrinkles” or “ripples“.
Commenting our post on social networks, many have suggested they may have been a sign of the airframes aging.
However, they have nothing to do with age of the B-52: they are the visual effect of the aircraft’s skin buckling.

RID ha pubblicato, sul suo sito, questa notizia soltanto ... ieri ...

... https://www.portaledifesa.it/index~phpp ... ,3511.html ...

Solo che ... risale al Settembre scorso ...

... rolls-royce.com ... https://www.rolls-royce.com/media/press ... polis.aspx ...

Senza contare che il "nostro" JT8D l'aveva già puntualmente riferita, con tanto di traduzione, in questa stessa pagina, il 16 Settembre dello scorso anno ...

Rimotorizzazione ... qualcosa (finalmente) si muove ...
The US Air Force (USAF) released a draft request for proposal to replace the engines of the ageing Boeing B-52H Stratofortress.
The notice brings the B-52H re-engine programme one step closer to kick off.
The service plans to buy 608 commercial engines – plus additional spare engines and support equipment – enabling it to operate the heavy bombers until at least 2050, a 23 April notice says.
The USAF plans to award a contract in May 2021.
The engines are to be delivered over 17 years.

Però, di tanto in tanto, il caro, vecchio Buff perde qualche pezzo ... #-o
A B-52 assigned to the 2nd Bomb Wing at Barksdale Air Force Base, La., lost an access panel during a May 1 flyover to honor individuals on the frontlines of the fight against the new coronavirus in New Orleans.
Around 10:30 a.m. local time, a hand-sized panel from the Stratofortress became dislodged over New Orleans city limits, wing spokesperson 2nd Lt. Aileen Lauer told Air Force Magazine later the same day.
“The panel landed on private property and was quickly recovered by Air Force personnel, in partnership with local authorities,” she said.

Rimotorizzazione ... si parte ... rilasciata la RFP ...
The Air Force on May 19 issued its request for proposals on the B-52 Commercial Engine Replacement Program, calling for responses by July and a contract award expected in June 2021.
GE Aviation, Raytheon Technologies’ Pratt & Whitney unit, and Rolls-Royce have all said they will compete.
The service, in the RFP, confirmed it wants to buy a total of 608 engines to equip 76 B-52s, each of which mounts eight engines arrayed two each in four nacelles.
For prototyping purposes, USAF will start with 20 engines - 16 for two aircraft plus four spares.
The first contract will be indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity, with production models delivered through 2037.
The B-52 is slated to remain in service through 2050.

Rimotorizzazione ... Rolls-Royce fa formalmente un passo avanti ...
Rolls-Royce formally entered the competition to re-engine the B-52 as expected, offering its F130 engine already in use in some USAF aircraft to power the bomber.
The Air Force on May 19 issued its request for proposals for the B-52 Commercial Engine Replacement Program, with responses due on July 22 and a contract award expected in June 2021.
In addition to Rolls-Royce, GE Aviation, and Raytheon Technologies’ Pratt & Whitney will compete for the award.
