Anyways....


To get this conversation back on track. The green lady. One detail im wondering about is tail configuration.

Does she have a big single tail? two stabilizers? If so are they Verticle? canted inward, outward?

How bout the wings. Does she have winglets? Are they anhedral or the opposite? MAW?

How bout engines. Top or bottom of fuselage?
Like does it make more sense to have them on top to develop more lift or on the bottom exploiting valkerie style compression lift?

I dunno. Anybody got any speculation?

I'll throw you one bone. Get rid of the idea of winglets. Too much weight for not enough return. They'd only really be useful at takeoff and landing, and add several hundred pounds of weight depending on configuration.

Id be inclined to think the wingtips are MAW and can configure themselves differently for different purposes.

In bassplyrs crazy fantasy, sometimes theyre strait. Sometimes their bent. And, that the configurations do certain things besides aid in take off and landing.

I also (bassplyr crazy talk here) think they may have no joints or hinges but can still change configuration at will. and that shaping would need to be critical and radical.

So theres no real extra weight its just that the wing itself is "flexible"

But this is basses zany speculation

Hey zaph.

You know what i wanna know?

Do jets in the airforce get washed?

I mean is there sone job specification where they assign a guy to hose down the aircraft and then whip out the old sponge and soapy water bucket (or equivalent) and give the plane a sponge bath like at a carwash? when hes done doing that hes gotta polish the landing gear struts n stuff and do a detail job on the cockpit?

😯😯😯

Cause if there is, how to you sign up for that specific gig? Id love to be the guy who gets to be the exotic jet washer. I'll even armorall the tires n make her look all spiffy. Give her a cute nickname and talk lovingly to her as i clean the spill stains from her fuel ports.

So no giant space shuttle style rudder?

Id like two inward canted smallish rudders. Just for looks. Always thought they looked neat.

But even if there is weight penalty for maw wingtips and that theyre usually used on aircraft with long wingspans that maybe with the right shaping they have other neato applications that are well worth it.

Also technically its called a rudder right? Is "tail" not really the technical or proper name in the aviation world? Always wondered.

Also for bragging rights id start up conversations with professional car detailers.

Car detail guy: yeah i waxed and polished two lamborghinis today. **all smug**

Me: oh yeah i wash vehicles too😃

Car detail guy: yeah whats the top speed of the vehicle 150mph? **thinking hes got a slam dunk on this conversation.

Me: xxxx.xx mph (had second thought posting that)

try these THREE Wing and Stabilizer configurations:

That should help illustrate what Zaphod58 is thinking..... :-)

That can be used in any size wing. They're looking at longer wings for commercial applications.

The rudder is the movable portion on the back of the tail. The actual tail is the vertical fin.

So tail is the technical name. Are the rear wings called the stabilizers? Im just trying to make sure im using the right terminology.

Tail is the common name for it.

Horizontal stabilizers or elevators. They move up and down for pitch control.

Unless hes thinking of Rudderons..

Thanks zaph.

So if the tail is the tail. Whats the rear of the fuselage called. Like how a ship has a stern. Do they use the same terminology for aircraft.

And for long flights does the greenlady also have a poop deck?

Airforce: " hey bass we do have a job for you! You get to clean all the fleets "poop decks!"

Bass: **all excited! Shows up for the first day on the job, smile quickly fades to a sad frown**

Aft fuselage.

They wear space suits, there's no way for them to use a standard lavatory. It takes a long time and help to get in and out of that suit.
