A Very Cost-Effective Approach to "Boomer" Training Employed by The Air National Guard
Meet the BOSS... the Air National Guard's prototypical effort to develop a KC-135 Boom Operator Simulation System. Designed to provide "a high fidelity, fully DMO (Distributed Mission Operations) capable squadron level boom operator simulator for KC-135 squadrons," this is a collaborative effort designed to maximize training capabilities while (at the same time) minimizing the costlier aspects of keeping KC135 "Boomers" trained on their equipment and many different types of aircraft they may be asked to interact with.
The BOSS is a low cost, squadron-level KC-135 simulator that began prototype integration recently and is being fielded with an estimated requirement for 17 devices. The Air National Guard program uses four Christie Mirage HD 3D stereo DLP projectors offering a projected 3D image that gives the boom operator 'true-to-life depth of perception that could otherwise only be experienced in an actual aircraft.' The 3D BOSS is the first of its kind, using active stereoscopic technology that specifically addresses a boom operator’s critical need for precision, mobility and hi-fidelity depth of field.
Designed to specifically support the ANG's the KC-135 Stratotanker fleet, these sim programs are devoted to filling training requirments for a vehicle that has provided the core aerial refueling capability for the Air Force/ANG and has excelled in this role for more than 50 years. The KC-135 provides aerial refueling support to Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps and allied nation aircraft. The KC-135 is also capable of transporting litter and ambulatory patients using patient support pallets during aeromedical evacuations.
Four turbofans, mounted under 35-degree swept wings, power the KC-135 to takeoffs at gross weights up to 322,500 pounds. Nearly all internal fuel can be pumped through the flying boom, the KC-135's primary fuel transfer method. A special shuttlecock-shaped drogue, attached to and trailing behind the flying boom, may be used to refuel aircraft fitted with probes. Some aircraft have been configured with the Multipoint Refueling System or MPRS. MPRS configured aircraft are capable of refueling two receiver aircraft simultaneously from special "pods" mounted on the wingtips. One crewmember, known as the boom operator, is stationed in the rear of the plane and controls the boom during in-flight air refueling. A cargo deck above the refueling system can hold a mixed load of passengers and cargo. Depending on fuel storage configuration, the KC-135 can carry up to 83,000 pounds of cargo.

Crownair Unveils Glass Cockpit-Equipped T210 During AOPA Expo 2008
It's getting harder and harder to come up with the scratch for a new airplane these days... especially for those of us hankering for new airplane capabilities like glass panels and other high-tech accoutrements. Then again; there's the retrofit game... and at AOPA Expo 2008, it was in full swing. One of the more significant announcements to come from the expo didn't come from aerospace giants Cessna or Cirrus... but from the comparatively diminutive Crownair Companies, a new aviation maintenance and avionics provider in the Southwest United States.
The company displayed its first Crownair "Centurion Edition" Cessna T210 during the upcoming show in San Jose, CA, November 6 through 8. The package is aimed at breathing new life into the popular, though aging, fleet of Cessna 210s. From spinner to tail cone, the upgraded 1977 aircraft features all new and state-of-the-art amenities including a glass cockpit with Electronic Flight Instrument System, new classic blue paint scheme, RAM engine, tinted glass, wingtips with recognition lights, Super Quiet cabin soundproofing and gray leather seats with sheepskin inserts.
The Crownair "Centurion Edition" T210 will compete with new manufactured aircraft by offering more payload, faster speeds and more range. The Centurion was in production from 1957 to 1985 and approximately 9,240 were manufactured.
"Centurion owners and pilots own a piece of history, but that doesn’t mean the plane shouldn’t have modern technology and comforts. The Crownair "Centurion Edition" is the first all glass cockpit in a Centurion T210 in the world," says Grant Murray, owner of Crownair. "We understand the dedicated owners and enthusiasts who fly Centurions, and our goal is to make their flying experience first class."
Crownair was formed this year in San Diego, CA. Production on the Crownair "Centurion Edition" T210 will be done on an as-ordered basis and takes approximately two to three months.

(AP) RENO, Nev. — Friends of an air racer and movie stunt pilot whose plane crashed into the edge of the grandstand at a show said the 74-year-old was a skilled airman and member of a tight-knit flying community.
Pilot Jimmy Leeward of Ocala, Fla., died in the crash Friday after apparently losing control of the P-51 Mustang, which spiraled into a box seat area at the National Championship Air Races at about 4:30 p.m. Friday. Leeward and at least two others were killed; dozens were injured.
Family members were at the air show and saw the crash, said Reno Air Races President and CEO Mike Houghton.
"They obviously are devastated," he said. "I talked to Jimmy's son and his wife wanted me to know that Jimmy would not want us to cancel the races but sometimes you have to do things that are not very popular."
3 dead, more than 50 hurt at Nev. air race
"Nothing" being ruled out in Reno crash probe
Leeward's pilot's medical records were up-to-date, and he was "a very qualified, very experienced pilot," Houghton said. He'd been racing at the show in Reno since 1975.
"Everybody knows him. It's a tight-knit family," Houghton said. "He's been here for a long, long time."
Deadly crash at Reno air races
Leeward gave an interview at the air show Thursday with Live Airshow TV, standing in front of his plane "The Galloping Ghost" and saying he didn't want to show his hand on how fast the plane could go.
"We've been playing poker since last Monday. And ... it's ready, we're ready to show a couple more cards, so we'll see on Friday what happens, and on Saturday we'll probably go ahead and play our third ace, and on Sunday we'll do our fourth ace," Leeward said in the interview.
Leeward owned the Leeward Air Ranch Racing Team and was a well-known racing pilot.
His website says he had flown more than 120 races and served as a stunt pilot for numerous movies, including "Amelia" and "Cloud Dancer."
The vintage plane raced in the "Unlimited" category, where the planes race wingtip-to-wingtip at speeds in excess of 500 mph.
"How fast will she go? Hold on tight, you'll find out soon enough. Reno Air Races 2011 ..." said a teaser on Leeward's website.
A post on his Facebook page Friday afternoon said "Jimmy is starting up right now" and posted a link to live video of the airshow. As news of Leeward's death spread, Facebook users posted comments and condolences on the post.
Steve Silver, 69, was Leeward's next-door neighbor at a gated community in Ocala, Fla.
"He's been my friend for many years," Silver said. "He was more than a competent pilot. He was really quite a guy."
Given Leeward's experience with flying, Silver said he doubts pilot error was the cause of the crash.
"It would be my bet there was some kind of mechanical malfunction," Silver said.
Maureen Higgins, of Alabama, said Leeward was the best pilot she knew. She was at the air show and said she could see his profile while the plane was going down. He was married and his wife often traveled with him.
"He's a wonderful pilot, not a risk taker," she said. "He was in the third lap and all of a sudden he lost control."
Leeward and his wife had two adult sons, Dirk and Kent, according to Leeward's website.

On 8 June 1966, XB-70A #2 was in close formation with four other aircraft (an F-4, F-5, T-38, and F-104) for a photoshoot at the behest of General Electric, manufacturer of the engines of all five aircraft. With the photoshoot complete, the F-104 drifted into contact with the XB-70's right wing, flipped over, and rolling inverted, passed over the top of the Valkyrie, struck the vertical stabilizers and left wing and exploded, destroying the Valkyrie's rudders and damaging its left wing. With the loss of both rudders and damage to the wings, the Valkyrie entered an uncontrollable spin and crashed into the ground north of Barstow, California. NASA Chief Test Pilot Joe Walker (F-104 pilot) and Carl Cross (XB-70 co-pilot) were killed, while Al White (XB-70 pilot) ejected, sustaining serious injuries, including one arm being crushed as it was caught in the clamshell-like escape capsule as it closed around him just before ejection from the aircraft.
The USAF summary report of the accident investigation stated that, given the position of the F-104 relative to the XB-70, the F-104 pilot would not have been able to see the XB-70's wing, except by uncomfortably looking back over his left shoulder. The report concluded that Walker, piloting the F-104, likely maintained his position by looking at the fuselage of the XB-70, forward of his position. The report estimated that the F-104 was 70 ft (21 m) to the side of, and 10 ft (3 m) below, the fuselage of the XB-70. The report concluded that from that position, without appropriate sight cues, Walker was unable to properly perceive his motion relative to the Valkyrie, leading to his aircraft drifting into contact with the XB-70's wing. The accident investigation also pointed to the wake vortex off the XB-70's wingtips as the reason for the F-104's sudden roll over and into the bomber.
