Russian MI 12 HOMER the biggest helicopter...

02:29 220428 1

The Mil Mi-12 (V-12) was a 120-seat heavy transport helicopter powered by four Soloviev D-25VF turbo shaft engines. Footage of the first flight was released in 1968. This giant helicopter had fixed wings and was lifted by two Mi-6 rotors mounted at the ends of outrigger wings. Two [or three??] prototypes of MI 12 were built, but the helicopter never entered production. Although it was constructed only two copies of Mil Mi-12 (V-12) experimental helicopter, the famous giant machine is the biggest helicopter in the world. Rotor, transmission and engine were taken from the MI-6, but are duplicated and located at the ends of the still backed truss brace consoles wing. The use of two rotating in opposite directions rotor ruled out the need for a tail propeller, and the plumage was traditional - with two additional washers at the end inhibitor. Four turbovalnyh engine Soloviev D-25VF had a total capacity of the shaft 19388 KW (26000 HP), which enabled a helicopter-12, first took off July 10, 1968., Set in February 1969. a series of records that will be presented for approval were first received in the West reported on the existence of the giant helicopter. He received the NATO code of"Homer" ( "Homer"). Later, on 6 August 1969., B-12 raised the payload 40204.5 kg (88,636 pounds) to an altitude of 2255 meters (7398 feet), setting a record which has so far not exceeded. The first test copy was destroyed during landing (with no deaths) in 1969. The second Mi-12 participated in the demonstration flights. The Mil Mi-12, known as V-12 in the Soviet Union, and by the NATO reporting name Homer, is so far the only helicopter produced by the Mil bureau to depart from the single main rotor plus tail rotor formula. The tandem rotor (or twin-rotor) configuration is used mainly with large helicopters. Because of the opposite rotation of the rotors, the torque of each single rotor is neutralized. The construction of the control system is much more complicated compared to a helicopter with a tail rotor. The arrangement of two rotors side by side was never very popular. This design was used for the largest helicopter ever built - the Mil Mi-12. The giant V-12 was a four-engine troop-carrier helicopter of twin-screw transverse layout. Power plants from Mi-6 were fastened to the ends of the truss consoles. The diameter of the finished rotors proved to be insufficient for this helicopter that it required boosting initial power plants. Two main rotors contra-rotating, slightly mesh into one another, turning A122 rpm, are mounted each at the end of a wing. The left rotor turns in the direction clockwise, the right rotor in the opposite direction to clockwise, seen from below. The metal blade entirely, each weighing 840 kg for 17 m in length are composed of metal spar on a tight tubular diameter, but whose thick walls are decreasing. The hubs are a classic cyclical plateau consists of two welded half-shells. The two rotors are linked by two shafts rigid, leading large diameter, a central gear box with a take-off (drive hydraulic pumps). This transmission is calculated so as to transmit the power necessary with two turbines arrested on the same side. Four Soloviev D-25VF turboshaft engines developing 4 850 kW each are mounted in pairs. Each pair is coupled to cause a rotor, but is also interconnected with each other to ensure relief lift of the aircraft. The lower cowl under each pair may fall to 1.80 m with a crank, to form a working platform where three men maintain engines and the rotor head. The rollovers for later fell back down to the same purpose. For the V-12 the OKB P.A.Solovyev created the special modification of the production engine D-25f with a power of 6500 hp. In the center section the intermediate gearbox, which ensured the fracture of power shaft, was established. Power shaft synchronized the rotation of had three-meter overlap rotors and delivered power from one reducer to another with the roll control and in the case of failure of one or even two engines from one side. Fuel was placed in the wing and external external fuel tanks. The wings with a contraction of less than one had a small dihedral angle for an improvement in the piloting helicopter characteristics. The high rise wing of inverted trapezoidal shape in plan view, the string is the smallest side emplanture at corner and many high profile guy, is metal construction. Flap-edges equip the prototype but would no longer appear on the aircraft. The fuselage, construction classic semi-monocoque, all-metal, has in the back of a rack and two doors opening in shell laterally. The ramp is equipped with two large bumper side by side to adjust the height from the ground. The fuselage of the V-12 was executed in the form semi-monocoque and resembled inside, according to descriptive expression of one of the foreign specialists, the gigantic Gothic cathedral. Two-story flight deck occupied its forward section. The cockpit, very classic, is located halfway up the front of the fuselage. It is occupied by a pilot on the left, a co-pilot side by side, right, a flight engineer behind the driver and an electrician behind the co-pilot. On the upper deck, above the cockpit are the positions of the browser and the radio operator. The crew would only fan blades rubber for air conditioning. A large cargo freighter, without any obstruction following posts before. The ceiling has rails on which the wings, from one end to another of the fuselage, a crane with 10 tons capacity. Fifty people can be carried on canvas folding seats against the side walls. Access to the main cabin is done by two side doors left and right, the crew with sliding doors front right and left. The cargo and vehicles entering the ventral rear hatch. In the aft fuselage section the power ladder and the lateral folds, which during deployment formed aperture for the entrance of self-propelled technology and loading of different loads with the aid of the powerful electric hoists and the telphers, were found. Center fuselage occupied large cargo hold by the size of 28,15 X of 4,4 X of 4,4 meters.

4 A380 in formation

The Airbus A380 is a big aircraft full of fresh ideas. Its twin, full-length, wide-bodied cabin has exceptionally efficient air filters. With four high level air outlets instead of the traditional two, the cabin air gets refreshed every three minutes. Which helps passengers to feel fresher, both during and after the flight. There is a fresh approach to its environmental impact, too. With a new wing design and composite materials accounting for 25% of its structural weight, the A380 is a much more efficient aircraft all round. And by producing only about 75g of CO2 per passenger kilometre, the A380 is contributing to the aviation industry's commitment to constraining greenhouse gas emissions. Fresher thinking inside, fresher thinking outside. © Airbus S.A.S. 2009. All rights reserved.

Hi this a Video clip which i recorded when A-380 visited an First All Civilian Air Show held in INDIA on 15th-Oct-08 to 17th-Oct-08. The famous Airbus A-380 came to the airshow on 16th (i.e, on 2nd day of the Airshow)and kept for a static display. Later on the last day of the airhow (i.e, on 17th-Oct-08) early in the morning it started up it's engines to get back to home. And this is the video which i recorded while it taxies on main Runway and take's off into the early winter foggy skies. Watch the video clip and enjoy.

Tupolev Tu 95 Bear

07:23 242394 3

The Tupolev Tu-95 is a large, four-engine turboprop powered strategic bomber and missile platform. First flown in 1952, the Tu-95 was put into service by the former Soviet Union in 1956 and is expected to serve the Russian Air Force until at least 2040.[2]. Commonly known by its NATO designation, the "Bear"[3] the aircraft has four Kuznetsov NK-12 engines, each driving contra-rotating propellers. It remains the fastest mass-produced propeller-driven aircraft and the only turboprop-powered strategic bomber to go into operational use. Its distinctively swept back wings are at 35 degrees, a very sharp angle by the standards of propeller-driven aircraft. A naval development of the bomber is designated Tu-142.The Tu-95RT variant in particular was a veritable icon of the Cold War as it performed a vital maritime surveillance and targeting mission for other aircraft and surface ships and submarines. It was identifiable by a large bulge under the fuselage, which housed a radar antenna that was used to search for and target surface ships.
