I'll eventually come up with some rules or something like that. Anything related to aviation is welcome, including spacecraft.

Have you taken the brown pill yet, mateys?

it's a tough pill to swallow! The brown pill was founded in 1999 by Sir Reginald Brownpill, who presents and narrates the attached video.

Forget red and blue pills, brown pills are the way of the future.

A quarter century after abruptly shutting down late one January night in 1991, Eastern Air Lines is once again in the air.

This is not the same airline you loved—or didn't love—a generation ago. Near the end, after all, Eastern was not known for happy employees or stellar customer service. The new Eastern, which started flying in May of last year, is a charter airline flying four Boeing 737s mainly on short routes from Miami to places like Havana, Camaguey, and Santa Clara, all in Cuba. It also flies several sports teams, including the NHL's Florida Panthers. From a business perspective, the new Eastern is no different than many companies you've never heard of, like Miami Air International or Omni Air International.

That may soon change. In 2011, this Eastern bought all the intellectual property from the old Eastern's bankruptcy estate—the logos and branding were worth more than $1 million—with their sights set on more than just charter flights. Ed Wegel, Eastern's CEO, hints that the company may launch a regular airline, perhaps with a hub in Miami, much like their gig 25 years ago. "It's something that we haven't made any final decisions on, but something we are leaning favorably towards doing," he tells Conde Nast Traveler. If Eastern takes the leap, Wegel says it will probably focus on Latin American and the Caribbean, two regions the airline cut before it folded in 1991, two years after filing for bankruptcy protection.

Founded in 1926, Eastern was once a powerhouse, taking advantage of airline regulation—until the late 1970s the government controlled what airlines flew which routes—to build busy hubs in New York, Atlanta, and Miami. But it struggled after de-regulation, and by the early 1990s, it was only the nation's eighth-largest airline, eclipsed by three brands still flying—United, Delta, and American. Even at its peak, however, it never matched the aura or global reach of Pan Am. "I never saw Eastern as being a particularly lovable carrier you wanted to bring back," says Brett Snyder, who runs the airline industry blog CrankyFlier. "But maybe it's nostalgic for the few people who have good memories of Eastern.”

The nostalgia-fueled numbers don't lie. Wegel, a former Eastern managPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Can please someone explain why does it have a lower maximum speed (2390 km/h) compared to Su-27 (2500 km/h) when its engines have ~15% increased thrust? What aerodynamic modifications increased drag that much?

I was not aware of this.

I'm researching it now.

I'm getting a lot of conflicting data and approximations. Will update.

>>82
Had come by a semi-reliable source claiming that 2390 km/h is Su-35's maximum speed with air to air ordnance, so Su-27s 2500 km/h might be clean configuration?

After all it's a common secret that back in the late Cold War the U.S. and USSR dickwaved F-15' and Su-27's performance respectively by "cheating" to break performance records (like removing tactically vital components of the plane to reduce weight/drag etc…).

How can we revive this board?

Is it possible to advertize in /k/, /pol/ and /int/ that seemed to be the most interested boards on the subject?
