Thursday Avalon Airshow...



Back end of the C17 Globemaster.
Inside the C17 Globemaster.
The awesome F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. This aircraft has been put together by a conglomerate of technological facilities. The JSFs advanced airframe, autonomic logistics, avionics, propulsion systems, stealth, and firepower will ensure that the F-35 is the most affordable, lethal, supportable and survivable aircraft ever to be used by so many warfighters across the globe. At the Avalon Airshow, the American Air Force together with Pratt and Whittney and GE Rolls-Royce Engines showcased how this craft is put together.

The engines allow the plane to hover like the Harrier Jet is capable of. The difference here, amongst a few things, is the amount of thrust initiated by the engine on the JSF. The engine actually rotates in order to direct the jet air flow and create lift aswell as to propel this baby through the air. The Ultra Large Fire Vehicle. MK8. This baby carries firefighting equipment aswell as rescue and emergency response equipment. Each tyre is $2,900 AU. It runs at 120km/hr at top speed, seats 4 people(driver, operator and 2 crew) and weights a whopping 33tonne fully laden.
