Legendary test pilot Scott Crossfield, 84

first_img“We keep talking about test pilots, but there is no such thing as a `test pilot,”‘ he said in a 1988 interview with Aviation Week & Space Technology. “They are all just people who incidentally do flight tests. … We should divest ourselves of this idea of special people (being) heroes, if you please, because really they do not exist.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

In his heyday, he routinely climbed into some of the most powerful, most dangerous and most complex pieces of machinery of his time, took them to or beyond expected performance limits – “pushed the envelope,” as test pilots worded it – and brought them back to Earth intact. “He’s really one of the major figures,” said Peter Jakab, aerospace chairman at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum. “He was not only the great cutting-edge research pilot, … but after that he continued to be a great adviser and participant in all aspects of aerospace.” Crossfield, who lived in Herndon, Va., and still flew regularly in his 80s, was one of a group of civilian pilots assembled by the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, the forerunner of NASA, in the California desert at what became Edwards Air Force Base. Crossfield flew Mach 2 on Nov. 20, 1953, when he hit 1,300 mph in NACA’s Douglas D-558-II Skyrocket. The plane reached an altitude of 72,000 feet. After leaving NACA, he had a major role in the development of the X-15 rocket plane and piloted it on several of its test flights in the early 1960s. RANGER, Ga. – Scott Crossfield, the hotshot test pilot and aircraft designer who in 1953 became the first man to fly at twice the speed of sound, was killed in the crash of his small plane, authorities said Thursday. He was 84. Crossfield’s body was found in the wreckage in the mountains about 50 miles northwest of Atlanta on Thursday, a day after the single-engine plane he was flying dropped off radar screens on a flight from Alabama to Virginia. There were thunderstorms in the area at the time. Crossfield was believed to have been the only person aboard. In the 1950s, Crossfield embodied what came to be called “the right stuff,” dueling the better-known Chuck Yeager for supremacy among America’s Cold War test pilots. Yeager broke the sound barrier in 1947. Only weeks after Crossfield reached Mach 2, or twice the speed of sound, Yeager outdid him. last_img

first_imgNo more arguments over the dishes!The Mount Errigal Hotel has just launched their new ‘Family Tea Time Treat’ offer.  The hotel has been inundated with requests for a good value deal, which is affordable for a family to have some quality time to dine!Eating out with two kids or more can sometimes rank up a mighty bill when you add in the children’s drinks and ice cream.  The hotel noticed that their family trade had changed, so through some light research they learned that eating out in these tough times has taken a ‘back seat’ because a lot of restaurants don’t cater well for families. The hotel’s team of chefs have worked together and created an excellent menu which offers a family of four a sharing starter plate of nibbles, choice of main course, ice cream for the kids and a jug of Mi Wadi for only €32 in total!The offer is available every day from 3pm to 8pm excluding Saturdays, no need to book just call in to Café Renaissance, relax, enjoy your food and enjoy some quality family time!NO MORE ARGUMENTS OVER THE DISHES AS HOTEL LAUNCHES FAMILY TREAT OFFER was last modified: May 24th, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
