    Jolly Roger – the insignia on the engine cover of Grumman F-14A Tomcat
    :)
    вот на этой фотке и ссылке (как специально, после моего любимого томката) меня любопытство унесло куда-то в дебри инторанетов часов так на 8, и потом уже пришлось делать даже некоторое усилие над собой, чтобы досмотреть альбом.

      Ну да, я тоже пока комменты к этому альбому писала, не только по и-нету кучу времени проползала, но и даже фильм посмотрела (см. описание к предыдущей фотке).

    Any idea why SEVEN cylinders make sense?
    Кто-нибудь знает, чем хороши именно семь (такое странное число) цилиндров у этого двигателя?

      "In a radial engine the cylinders are numbered around
      the circle, with the #1 cylinder at the top. There are always an odd
      number of cylinders in each bank, as this allows for a constant
      alternate cylinder firing order: for example, with a single bank of 7
      cylinders, the order would be 1-3-5-7-2-4-6. Moreover, unless there is
      an odd number of cylinders, the ring cam around the nose of the engine
      would be unable to provide the inlet valve open - exhaust valve open
      sequence required by the four stroke cycle." ()

      Радиальные
      движки очень удобны именно в истребительной авиации - их легко
      охлаждать прямо воздухом от винта/потока, поэтому соотношение массы и
      мощности самое выгодное (было - пока мессершмитт и даймлер не придумали,
      как охлаждать водой). На 4 такта необходимо нечетное число цилиндров, а
      7 получалось воткнуть максимум без излишней сложности в те времена.

    Dough and stuffing
    I would enjoy this for sure, but will use beef instead.

      No! Beef will make it totally blunt. 
      I know that many people avoid lamb because they think that bad smell is unavoidable. In fact, it's a great art to be able to pick the right pieces of lamb meat and fat, which will not have bad smell. There is a certain kind of fat that makes food really yummy. However, many cheap eateries just use all the meat - both bad and good. My mother-in-law learned the right technique when she was growing up in Tashkent, and she taught my husband (lucky me!).

    Suzanne Delano Parish flew Curtiss P-40N Warhawk in the 70’s and 80’s.
    Fascinating career!

      Note that it was a job only during the war.
      After the war, the WASP were disbanded. Sue wrote to every aviation company she knew of in search of a job as a pilot. She even approached her uncle, Donald Gilmore, then president of the Upjohn Company, for a job as a pilot. However, at that time, female pilots weren't accepted in the aviation industry.
      So after the war it was just a hobby for her.
      Note that they have an entire new exhibit about WASP - very informative. 
      The more info like this I see, the better I understand why US women are so feminist. They did not have many important rights for a long time.

    The home of Jim Abrams (the COO of Medline) - next to Ravinia Park in Highland Park
    That's Jim Abrams home, the COO of Medline. Its a 30 million dollar home, and the smaller building up the driveway is actually a pool house with a tunnel connecting the two.

      Thanks for the comment! It helped me find the following interesting information about the estate: http://www.chicagomag.com/Radar/Deal-Estate/October-2007/Housing-BulletinaA-New-Owner-for-Pickellas-Lakefront-Property-in-Highland-Park/
      I should have checked Wikimapia: http://wikimapia.org/17168542/A-G-Becker-House

      It is interesting that Medline was founded by Wendy Abrams’s (Mr. Abrams’s wife's) great-grandfather a century ago.

      Note that Medline owned the Michael Reese Hospital campus, which the City of Chicago bought relatively recently. See my description under the following picture in this folder: http://public.fotki.com/Ikarushka/chicago_and_midwest/flight-along-lake-m/chicago/img-4325.html

      Вот вернётся пилот из поездки, попросим ответить.

        Лучше в метрах и км/ч(в футах и милях мы не понимайт).
        • Alexey Goldin (Private)

          100-110 узлов, т.е. 180-200 км/ч.
           Высота от 600 то 1200 м.

            Скорость по фото,конечно,не определишь.А с высотой я не ошибся.Правда 1200 не увидел.Просто ориентиры у вас несколько другие,чем были у меня( у вас более масштабные,поэтому и высота кажется меньше).Спасибо.

              А я не уверен что тут есть фотки с высоты 1200м. Там вообще был короткий промежуток времени когда надо было пройти над воздушным пространством одного аэропорта, большую часть времени ниже. 

              Собсно вру, там всего 1000 было над уровнем земли. 1200 жто над уровнем моря.

                Значит,даже через 30 с лишним лет сохраняются навыки.Это-как плавать научиться один раз.(Это я о себе).
