WHAT'S HAPPENING

RQ-4A Global Hawk is back together

The RQ-4A Global Hawk is back together in one piece for the first time in years. It's temporary though. Museum restoration specialists mated the wing and fuselage so they can test fittings for the pedestal that is being constructed. The aircraft is currently inside the Scott Hangar. It will be permanently displayed on a pedestal in the Century of Flight Hangar.

Georgia Invitation Golf Tournament to Be Held at Houston Lake
Country Club

This year’s 25th Annual Georgia Invitational Golf Tournament will be held at the Houston Lake Country Club in Perry Georgia on September 18-19. Due to renovations and improvements being made at the Pine Oaks Golf Course on Robins AFB where the Tournament is normally held, the event conducted by the Museum of Aviation Foundation was moved to provide Tournament players with the best golf experience possible. “We appreciate the willingness of Houston Lake to host this event,” said Patrick M. Bartness, President and Chief Operating Officer of the Museum of Aviation Foundation, “and we look forward to returning to Pine Oaks in 2015.”

Robins Regional Chamber Recognizes 2013 Leadership Class for Getting New Gate Sign for Museum of Aviation

The Robins Regional Chamber of Commerce recognized the 2013 Leadership Robins Region Class August 18 by cutting a ribbon in front of the new Museum of Aviation Main Gate Sign. The class, comprised of 12 business leaders and led by Lisa Fruge-Cirilli, completed a project in 2013 “to satisfy a need in the community that was currently not being met,” according to Fruge-Cirilli. The class decided to provide a new entrance sign to the Museum of Aviation.

As a class, the participants sold racks of ribs on two separate occasions and sought personal contributions to fund their efforts. The fundraising efforts went so well that the class had additional funds to spend on doing a small amount of landscaping and a paint refresh on the existing playground equipment and were able to purchase a couple of new pieces for inside the Museum Compound.

Interim Robins Regional Chamber President Steve Williams served as master of ceremonies for the ceremony which included Warner Robins Mayor Randy Toms, Museum of Aviation Foundation Board of Directors Chairman Tom McMichael, Museum of Aviation Foundation staff and 2013 Leadership Robins Region Class members.

 

Faster Than a Speeding Bullet
By Mike Rowland, Museum of Aviation Curator

When I was a boy, I enjoyed reading about world records. There was something fascinating to me about achievements that were the best in the world. Years later, I find myself reflecting on the museum’s SR-71 Blackbird, serial number 61-7958, holder for 38 years today of the world absolute speed record for airplanes.

On 28 July 1976, pilot Eldon W. Joersz and reconnaissance systems officer (RSO) George T. Morgan, Jr. blasted through the sky over Edwards Air Force Base, California, in SR-71 958. Their flight plan involved passing a timing gate, flying a straight course of 25 kilometers (15.5 miles), passing a second timing gate, turning around, and flying back over the course. The average speed of the two passes was an amazing 2,193.167 miles (3,529.56 kilometers) per hour, which was ratified by the World Air Sports Federation, the international organization that governs world aviation records. Other airplanes may have gone faster, but 958 has the top spot in the record book.

How fast is 2,193 miles per hour? That’s 36.55 miles per minute or 3,216.4 feet per second. That’s faster than a bullet shot from the classic M1 Garand rifle of World War II fame. When a bullet left the M1’s muzzle, it was going 2,800 feet per second. If it were possible to put the two in the air together at speed, 958 would have blasted by an M1’s bullet at 400 feet per second or over 270 miles per hour.
