What makes the Hong Kong Business Aviation Center (HKBAC) one of the best FBOs in the region? Its amazing staff. The highly motivated and capable individuals who work at the BAC sure know how to make you feel welcomed. Thank you, guys. You are the best!
Over 330 of these magnificent jets have been built since its December 2012 introduction. At this rate the G650 will surpass Gulfstream’s most popular aircraft in terms of numbers built - the G550. Total G650 fleet hours exceed 330 thousand with a dispatch reliability (NBAA) of 99.62%. Yeah, its a winner...and I am fortunate to fly one
⚠️🌎🔥F-117A Nighthawk during aerial refueling by a KC-135R stratotanker. ⚔️🙌🏽👇🏼👇🏼. 👉🏼⚠️5 important things about the aircraft⚠️ 👇🏼🚀F-117 Nighthawk🚀👇🏼
1. The idea behind stealth aircraft was theorized by a Soviet mathematician, who in the 1960s found that the strength of a radar return wasn't related to the object's size, but instead related to the edge configuration of the object. 2. The US stealth project began in 1975, and the first two prototypes, code name "Have Blue", were built using T-38 jet engines, F-16 fly-by-wire systems, A-10 landing gear, and C-130 environmental systems. 3. The F-117 was made entirely of flat surfaces, because 1970s era computers didn't have enough power to calculate the radar cross-section of curved surfaces. 4. The F-117's first flight took place in 1981 - the same year the Space Shuttle flew its first orbit around earth. 5. The F-117 holds the record for longest non-stop single-seat fighter flight, when it was flown from Holloman AFB in New Mexico to Kuwait, with aerial refueling.
