Flymall / Kraemer Aviation March Newsletter 2017

Thursday, March 30th, 2017

Welcome to the Kraemer Aviation/Flymall March 2017 Newsletter.

Are you interested in car shows, airshows, etc? Visit Harry’s event calendar for 100s of local and national events.  You can have the calendar email you a reminder about an event that you are interested in. The calendar has over 25 categories. You can view all categories or just the one that you are interested in.

I recently saw something in a METAR that I had to look up – Graupel.

Graupel

Also called soft hail or snow pellets, is precipitation that forms when supercooled droplets of water are collected and freeze on falling snowflakes, forming 2–5 mm (0.08–0.20 in) balls of rime. The term graupel comes from the German language.

Graupel is distinct from hail, small hail and ice pellets: The World Meteorological Organization defines small hail as snow pellets encapsulated by ice, a precipitation halfway between graupel and hail. The METAR code for graupel is GS.

 

Here is something interesting that made the rounds on Facebook a few weeks ago. Circular Runways!  What are your thoughts? You can leave your comments below.

Let’s go back in time.  Look at the car prices in this ad from the News Post (a Baltimore Maryland newspaper) September 1961.

Today in Aviation History
May 25, 1927: Lt. James A. Doolittle files the first outside loop in a Curtiss P-1-B pursuit plane at McCook Field. Starting at an altitude of 8000 ft Doolittle pointed the nose of the a/c down and describes a circle of 2000 ft diameter, leveling out at his original altitude. At the bottom of the circle, flying inverted, it is estimated that his a/c was traveling at 280 mph. The outside loop had not been previously attempted because of fear that the a/c would disintegrate. [Note: French pilot Pegoud is purported to have performed outside loops prior to this date.]
