Flight International issue 10 - 16 March
Last week Flightglobal celebrated the 40th anniversary of Concorde's first flight. Take a look at the 6 March 1969 issue of Flight in our pdf archive dedicated to the first supersonic aircraft which includes an article on the technology used, aircraft structure, fuel system, aerodynamics, flight testing, payload accommodation, aircraft data, a cutaway drawing and an airline pilot's view.
We have 5 copies of a new book; Concorde: A Photographic History to give away and we've created a gallery for you to upload your images and a forum discussion to share your memories of the iconic aircraft.
Get involved in the discussion on AirSpace about Rolls-Royce confirming its RTM322 turboshaft engine is the "engine of record" for a new Eurocopter high-speed rotorcraft research programme dubbed "X3".
One user suggest the X3 looks "remarkably like a modernised Fairy Rotodyne" but wonders "what powers the rotor because the drawing shown (in the discussion) has no anti torque tail rotor which suggests that the rotor is powered, when required, by blade tip jets."
Have you suffered from contaminated cabin air asks another forum post. Neurotoxins get into the cabin air of almost all passenger airliners.
Aircraft manufacturers and the airlines say that when it happens the doses are harmless. One user says he was regularly exposed to fumes over a five year period and suffered headaches, lightheaded and dizziness.
Nausea, stomach pains and diahorrea. Fatigue and lack of concentration. He was later diagnosed with Aerotoxic Syndrome and declared medically unfit to fly.
See a great image of three Virgin aircraft at Los Angeles International Airport last week following the launch of Virgin Blue's long-haul arm V Australia with an inaugural flight from Sydney.
Week on the Web is also available as an audio podcast on AirSpace and iTunes.
