      The Human Body
      By Sonny · Posted
      Three engineering students were gathered together discussing who must have designed the human body.

      One said, "It was a mechanical engineer. Just look at all the joints."

      Another said, "No, it was an electrical engineer. The nervous system has many thousands of electrical connections."

      The last one said, "No, actually it had to have been a civil engineer. Who else would run a toxic waste pipeline through a recreational area?"

      prop pitch lock again and again

      Please confirm that the following parts were NOT transfered from one propeller to the next when the propellers were changed:      valve housing      pump housing      PITCHLOCK regulator      brass barrel nut     Thing that sticks in my mind is the PITCHLOCK system is essentially mechanical, meaning once a COMPLETELY different propeller is installed the problem should go away. I wonder if the problem being experienced isn't maybe an engine roll-back .... this is just a thought

      prop pitch lock again and again
      By frank t · Posted
      good evening sir, normally when you leave cruise altitude and start a descend to land and your prop is pitch locked rpm goes down and torque will start to climb if the blades are locked up. if you start your descend and rpm goes up it usually means you have developed a flat blade angle. your nts system is not bumping the prop. up. i'm assuming your in a 4 bladed e or h model in any event we would shoot the approach until either prop. or eng. limits have been exceeded then feather that engine and continue the approach if the prop. doesn't feather then their  other procedures to follow we would never try to land with a pitch locked, windmilling or uncontrollable prop. there are inflight pitch lock tests that can also gather info.  what we need sir is #####  TRQE, RPM ,F/F TIT, ALTITUDE  OAT, AND IF THE CREW HAS TIME ENG. GEN. FREQUENCY FOR THE AFFECTED ENG. THAT WILL VALIDATE RPM GAUGES . I hope this will help. good luck. p.s. my money is on prop. rigging or nts sys.

      No Sir how can we make a landing  with pitch lock prop when pitch locked governing fiction is over either it's normal or mechanical gov  I mean even prop set to mechanical before decend even then it pitch locked  Can the malfunctioning nts system be a cause of this malfunction? Or any other thing in engine ?

      Got Milk?
      By Sonny · Posted
      A wife asks her husband, a software engineer...

      "Could you please go shopping for me and buy one carton of milk, and if they have eggs, get 6!" A short time later the husband comes back with 6 cartons of milk. The wife asks him, "Why the hell did you buy 6 cartons of milk?" He replied, "They had eggs."

      LM-100J Commercial Freighter Makes Successful First Flight
      By Metalbasher · Posted
      25 May, 2017, 17:43 ET MARIETTA, Ga., May 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The first Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) LM-100J commercial freighter aircraft achieved a critical milestone with the completion of its first flight here today. "I was proud to fly the first flight of our LM-100J. It performed flawlessly, as is typical of our military C‑130J new production aircraft," said Wayne Roberts, chief test pilot for the LM-100J Program. "This new model will perform many commercial roles in the decades to come, like humanitarian service following natural disasters and others like nuclear accident response, oil spill containment, and firefighting. This aircraft will also enable remote area development such as mining and oil and gas exploration. This day marks the beginning of a tremendous commercial capability that only the LM-100J can deliver." Lockheed Martin’s LM-100J commercial freighter had a successful first flight, May 25, 2017. by Todd R. McQueen This first flight followed the same test flight route over North Georgia and Alabama that is used for all C-130J Super Hercules aircraft. The LM-100J will complete initial production flight tests and then begin Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) type certificate update flight test requirements. "This first flight is a source of pride for Lockheed Martin and serves as a proof-point to the ongoing versatility of the Super Hercules aircraft," said George Shultz, vice president and general manager, Air Mobility & Maritime Missions, and Marietta site general manager. "I'm continually impressed by the commitment to quality and relevance that our employees, industry partners and customers have invested into the LM-100J. Like its military counterpart, the LM‑100J is exceeding all expectations in terms of performance and capabilities." The LM-100J is the 17th different mission capability developed for the C-130J Super Hercules and it is an updated version of the L-100 cargo aircraft, which Lockheed Martin produced from 1964-1992. Lockheed Martin officials submitted a Program Notification Letter to the FAA on Jan. 21, 2014, for a type design update to this aircraft, a civil-certified variant of the C-130J Super Hercules to be marketed as the LM-100J. Through select design innovations, the LM-100J will perform as a commercial multi-purpose air freighter capable of rapid and efficient cargo transport. The LM-100J is an ideal airlift solution for delivering bulk and oversize cargo, particularly to austere locations worldwide. Like its military counterpart, the LM-100J will be able to support multiple missions, ranging from firefighting to medevac to VIP transport. The LM-100J incorporates technological developments and improvements over the existing L‑100s that result from years of C-130J operational experience, including more than 1.5 million fleetwide flight hours. The result of this experience and advancement translates to an aircraft that will deliver reliable service in a multi-role platform for decades to come.

      As You Slide Down the Banister of Life, Remember:

      As You Slide Down the Banister of Life, Remember:

      1. Jim Baker and Jimmy Swaggert have written an impressive new book. It's called "Ministers Do More Than Lay People."

      2. Transvestite: A guy who likes to eat, drink and be Mary.

      3. The difference between the Pope and your boss...the Pope only expects you to kiss his ring.

      4. My mind works like lightning. One brilliant flash and it is gone.

      5. The only time the world beats a path to your door is if you're in the bathroom.

      6. I hate sex in the movies. Tried it once. The seat folded up, the drink spilled and that ice, well, it really chilled the mood.

      7. It used to be only death and taxes were inevitable. Now, of course, there's shipping and handling, too.

      8. A husband is someone who, after taking the trash out, gives the impression that he just cleaned the whole house.

      9. My next house will have no kitchen - just vending machines and a large trash can.

      10. A blonde said, "I was worried that my mechanic might try to rip me off. I was relieved when he told me all I needed was turn signal fluid."

      11. I'm so depressed. My doctor refused to write me a prescription for Viagra. He said it would be like putting a new flagpole on a condemned building.

      12. My neighbor was bit by a stray rabid dog. I went to see how he was and found him writing frantically on a piece of paper. I told him rabies could be treated, and he didn't have to worry about a Will. He said, "Will? What Will? I'm making a list of the people I want to bite."

      13. Definition of a teenager? God's punishment for enjoying sex.

      14. As you slide down the banister of life, may the splinters never point the wrong way.
