what about the tenerife disaster?

I just wasted the past 6 hours trapped in a web of Wikipedia links after looking this up. But I do agree, they definitely left this off the list (i'm thinking it should be top 5).

Subject: Information about standard aircraft lights at nigh
Name: jetwhiz
Message: Welcome, Nesh!

This resource can describe it better than I could in only words -- -> Aircraft Lights & Beacons

The key points is that there are typically white, red and green lights. They normally do not need to be located in specific locations, but some must be visible from certain perspectives.

For instance, for navigation lights a red light must be visible on the left side of the aircraft and a green light must be visible on the right side. The only requirement specified by the FAA is that they must be "spaced laterally as far apart as practicable" -- typically this means near the wingtips.

Subject: Are all soviet planes copies of american planes?
Name: jetwhiz
Message: Yeah there are a lot of similarities ... the Americans and Russians went back and forth designing aircraft in response to each other during the cold war era.

For instance, when the Russians designed the MiG-25, the Americans designed the F-15 Eagle in response to that. The Russians then designed the MiG-29 and Su-27 in response to the F-15 and F-16.

Also, don't forget the Tu-144 and the Concorde (British/French), the Tu-160 and the B-1, the Buran and the Space Shuttle ...

Subject: Update for the picture of the week???
Name: jetwhiz
Message: I didn't actually change anything in my last message. In order to implement the new contest administration area I decided to completely re-do the membership permissions and I had to test out everything on the site to make sure I didn't break anything.

Everything should be in place now, though. The new contest should be up for this week, and the contests should be a lot easier to maintain now. If you notice any problems anywhere on the site please let me know ASAP. Volunteers should still be able to moderate the forum and make modifications to the website directly.

That pic has been up for months now, any chance we could get an answer and a new pic Jetwhiz?

You're not kidding ... that thing has been up for more than half a year. I'll automate the process more tomorrow afternoon to make it easier to maintain and update it then.

Subject: The Y in YF-22
Name: jetwhiz

The X- designation can mean a number of things, it generally stands for experimental, however an aircraft with the X- designation can still become a production aircraft without officially having a YF-, YB-, etc designation.

Very true, there are no requirements to have official aircraft status designations start at X and then Y before going to production; there were no official XF-22 aircraft released before the prototype was shown to the USAF.

There are two different meanings to 'X' in an aircraft designation:
  • the basic mission can be experimental (such as the X-1, X-15, etc.)
  • the status of an aircraft can be experimental (like the XF-11 and XF-89)

The X-35 has a basic mission of experimental (not fighter) ... it was an experimental aircraft (not a fighter with experimental status). If it were a fighter with experimental status then it would have been the XF-35. In that sense, there were no XF-35 and YF-35 aircraft made -- just a fully experimental aircraft that led to a production aircraft.
