Hello Friends,

It occurs to me the members in the Aviation Division may be interested in detail photos. I will update his thread as often as I can.

Here are some pictures of Boeing 767 landing gear details. However, Boeings gear design is very similar from 747 thru 777. The Drag Brace, Jury Struts and Gear Tilt mechanisms are all basically similar.

Regards,

Cris

Hello Friends,

As modelers, we are most often concerned with the exterior details. However, in the next few posts I thought I would share some pictures that Aviation enthusiasts might enjoy of the inside of things that the average person would never see.

Jet engines are composed of many turbines stacked one on top of the other which compress the air prior to its being mixed with fuel and ignited in the combustion chamber. The photos below show an engine that recently showed abnormal vibration and increased fuel flow. The images were captured by a device called a boroscope. Which is a long slender tube inserted in numerous inspection ports located about the engine. It allows for an inspection of the engine without dis-assembly.

This particular engine has been on wing and in service for 3200 hours. Of the the below photos which show several of the 14 turbines or stages, only one shows an unacceptable condition which must be repaired. Can you guess which one?

Regards,

Cris

Here are a few more. The very small perforations you see in the blades in these photos allow cooling air to circulate keeping the turbine in this area of the engine cool.

Hello Friends,

Here are some images of the Main Elex Equipment Center on a Boeing 767. This area is located under the main deck and extends from the forward pressure bulkhead aft about 4 meters. Most of the computers, transceivers, and other avionics are located here along with the main power distribution panels.

Regards,

Cris

Hi Friends,

Again nothing of great interest, never the less something most of you may not have seen before. Here are some pictures of a door emergency slide that was inadvertently partially deployed. It was not thank goodness inflated as that would have almost certainly resulted in injuries and further damage.

This Slide Pack weighs about 115 Kg and when inflated measures about 25 M x 2M and can support approximately 50 people when detached from the aircraft and used as a slide.

Regards,

Cris
