I posted this on a couple of other boards, but i thought some of you might enjoy it.

It's Air Force 1 leaving the Daytona 500 this year.

hehe it's definately fake.. look at all of the birds flying around.. That's dangerous.. not to mention that ***** needs a huge runway to take off from.

wheres the runway? and everybody knows that Air Force 1 is a trick...the president uses a different jet..yup I heard it from a guy that was yelling downtown

I wasn't sure because I do remember a little airport being right next to the Daytona track.

Oh it's real, i watched it on TV.
The airport is right next to the track.
The birds are actually flying by the track, it just looks like there close to the plane.

I just found these stats on the plane today.

General Characteristics
Primary Function: Presidential air transport
Contractor: Boeing Airplane Co.
Power Plant: Four General Electric CF6-80C2B1 jet engines
Thrust: 56,700 pounds, each engine
Length: 231 feet, 10 inches (70.7 meters)
Height: 63 feet, 5 inches (19.3 meters)
Wingspan: 195 feet, 8 inches (59.6 meters)
Speed: 630 miles per hour (Mach 0.92)
Ceiling: 45,100 feet (13,746 meters)
Maximum Takeoff Weight: 833,000 pounds (374,850 kilograms)
Range: 7,800 statute miles (6,800 nautical miles) (12,550 kilometers)
Crew: 26 (passenger/crew capacity: 102)
Introduction Date: Dec. 8, 1990 (No. 28000); Dec. 23, 1990 (No. 29000)
Date Deployed: Sept. 6, 1990 (No. 28000); Mar. 26, 1991 (No. 29000)
Inventory: Active force, 2; ANG, 0; Reserve, 0

Now thats fast for such a big plane.


Here's the Nascar Link that tells about it.

He was the one who said, "Gentlemen Start Your Engines" this year.

dupont, oreo, pepsi, air force 1 machine machine was a trucking around turn 3 when we lost some oil pressure in engine 3 but earl did some tric work in the **** and got ti running again, over all i think the dupont, oreo, pepsi, air force 1 machine is runnin awsome - bush after the daytona 500

even if those bired were flying by the plane the plane will win, those engines are designed to shread almost anything that gets in there. especially birds lol, otherwise we would have alot of downed aircraft

Aircraft manufacturers test jet engines by shooting frozen ducks into the engines.

Where did you hear that? Read up on it, hell, even Ripley's has an article on it.. This one place they had a problem with birds being sucked into the engines and killing the engines, and they tried using loud noises and stuff but the birds got used to it, so now they have like a trained hawk that goes and chases the birds out... This guy is hired to train the hawks and fly them around the airports with lots of birds. Big jets will still get jacked if something flys into the engines. Remember, they are flying at altitudes that no animals are flying at. The engines are not designed to be able to take any of that stuff in...

I know what your talking about Mav, i remember seeing a show on it, but they were talking more about planes with only one engine... And i seen a show about the frozen ducks too

Like you said, planes fly higher than birds can so it's only when taking off or decendind that they have to worry about them at all,

A 747 could lose 2 engine and still fly safely.
And it could lose 3 and still be able to get to a airport just by compensating with the flaps and the trim.

It could lose all 4 and still glide for several miles, probably 50 or more.

Planes don't fust fall out of the sky when they lose their engines.

I have been on jump planes that have lost one or both of their engines and still landed safely.
Mind you at the time, i never stayed with the plane, but the guys did land safely.

No need in chancing it when you already have a parachute on your back and was planning on a one way trip anyways.

Alot will depend om the pilots skills.

Bird-impact testing
Through bird-impact testing, new engines and airframes are subjected to simulated and actual bird strikes.

Aircraft windshields and airframes are tested using compressed air cannons, which direct euthanized birds against airframe components at designated speeds. The components are wired to instruments that measure impact forces and component distortion. High-speed films provide slow-motion playback, illustrating damage progression and bird trajectory after impact. Figure 12.1 shows a typical bird-impact test installation for windshields.




Engine testing begins on individual fan blades that are subjected to impact-loading tests to verify structural integrity. Euthanized birds are then fired into running engines from multi-barrel air guns. The engines are carefully monitored during both impact and a fixed-time run-on period following impact, recording engine parameters such as pressures, temperatures, accelerometer forces and strain-gauge values. Impact tests are also filmed at high speed to observe bird trajectories and engine-blade deformation. Figure 12.2 shows an example of aircraft engine bird-impact testing equipment.



Recently, airframe and engine manufacturers have investigated the use of computer simulation in modelling bird strikes. This technique will prove extremely useful during research and development, eliminating costly live testing that sometimes results in the destruction of prototype engines and windshields. Manufacturers are also examining the use of model birds for impact testing—tools that not only offer consistent density and shape and more accurate test results, but also address concerns raised by animal-welfare groups.
