LainaaIs the Flyin'Tiger nose the same as a Harmon Rocket nose? We took the front end off the Harmon Rocket and applied that to an RV4 fuselage, but you wouldn't call it a Rocket fuselage because we left the short turtledeck. I don't care for the tall turtledeck of the Rocket, and I wanted the P-51 look of a bubble canopy. Performance was secondary to begin with, but our prime objective to begin with was to have a very good-looking airplane, and that was pretty easy to achieve.
LainaaNever-say-die recordseeker Bruce Bohannon has been trying for a year or so now to push his highly modified RV-4, the Exxon Flyin' Tiger, up to 50,000 feet, and keeps coming up short. "We bolted an extra 18 inches onto each wing, and there were no gains at all," he said Wednesday morning at a Sun 'n Fun press conference. He and his team kept trying, tweaking the prop and the aerodynamics, and made multiple attempts with little progress. At one point, Bohannon said, they were about to accept that maybe 47,500 feet is just as high as you can get in an RV-4.

Pohjankankaan vaara-alueella (lennokkeja väistellen)?http://www.copenhagensuborbitals.com/http://supikoira.servu.org/
