Almost since the dawn of powered flight, military aircraft have benefitted from NASA aeronautics research. Back then – in 1917 – it wasn’t called NASA. It was the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, which changed its name to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration in 1958.

Blowy, overcast and air temperatures that would make a penguin freeze; thatâ€™s what greeted the XlLR8 Home Loans Australian F1 Superboat Series at Newcastle for Round 3 of the Series.
Held in Newcastleâ€™s inner harbour, this area, right opposite a drydocked Australian Navy ship, was at least sheltered from the gales battering NSWâ€™s Central Coast region.
Friday the 13th of June was certainly a black Friday for Tim Smith in the XLR8 Home Loans Number 13 F2000 entry. Whilst doing some running in, Tim crossed the path of a black fish (well, catâ€™s shouldnâ€™t be in the harbour) and proceeded to show why the series should be renamed the Australian F1 Flying Boats.
This coming after a number of boats going airborne at Round 2 at Toukley has certainly put the wind up the series pilots.
Practice got under way just after 11am, with cloud thickening to the east, just offshore. Anthony McEnally in the Watersports Marine #5 entry had starter problems at Toukley, as did team mate Dean Trickey in the #7 craft.Thankfully the issues were easily rectified and Anthony was confident that the fresh engines would not pose a problem over the weekend at Newcastle.
NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION
In history there are a very few weeks that are of significant importance to the world, but we are just completing one such week.
A number of events in Europe during this week have collectively been of great significance. The collective power and wealth of the countries that form the European Union make these events of immense importance to the world.
BSD decided not to comment on the events as they unfolded, but to reflect and research before posting comment.
That comment will be posted during the coming days.
In the meantime, we congratulate the people of the Irish Republic for their exercise of democracy in the face of bribes and intimidation
