Why were ALL civilian aircraft in America grounded for 12 hours on one day in 1961?

Eight Vulcans entered US airspace and simulated a Russian attack on US missile silos. It was the second time in a year they pulled it off. In 1960, they came in low, and skimmed in below radar. In 1961, they came in high, and actually went higher than the B-52s were flying and got past the interceptors.

Aaah, Vulcans. It's easy to forget we made planes here too once, and they were pretty damn good. :-).

Ok,this one is so difficult I reckon even Zaph won't get it.This is a family heirloom and has been in my family for a VERY long time,I think since about WW2.It is of course a paper knife or letter opener and was made by one of my relatives ( I can't remember which one,dad or grandad) from a part of an aeroplane.What part of the aeroplane was it made from please?

Looks like it has some internal engine bits.

Not engine.I'm not sure about the handle (it may not be aircraft parts),it's the blade specifically I'm interested in here.

On this aircraft's right wing, the part that connects the top wing to the bottom wing that looks like a capital letter N.

Yes,officially they're called 'rigging wires' and are he exact shape of the knife blade to be more aerodynamic when the sharp edge faces into wind.

Which military jet was the Learjet 23 based on and what stunt did it's creator Bill Lear pull when he and his young son were out flying in a Lear 23 one day?

The Swiss FFA P-16 ground attack fighter was the basis for the Learjet. Dunno about the stunt.

Regarding your aerofoil-section rigging wires, they were called rafwires as they were developed by the Royal Aircraft Factory during WW1
