Quoting Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum | Vought OS2U-three Kingfisher:
The Kingfisher was the U.S. Navy’s main ship-primarily based, scout and observation aircraft in the course of Globe War II. Revolutionary spot welding strategies gave it a smooth, non-buckling fuselage structure. Deflector plate flaps that hung from the wing’s trailing edge and spoiler-augmented ailerons functioned like further flaps to let slower landing speeds. Most OS2Us operated in the Pacific, where they rescued several downed airmen, which includes Globe War I ace Eddie Rickenbacker and the crew of his B-17 Flying Fortress.
In March 1942, this airplane was assigned to the battleship USS Indiana. It later underwent a six-month overhaul in California, returned to Pearl Harbor, and rejoined the Indiana in March 1944. Lt. j.g. Rollin M. Batten Jr. was awarded the Navy Cross for making a daring rescue in this airplane below heavy enemy fire on July four, 1944.
Transferred from the United States Navy.

Boeing’s B-29 Superfortress was the most sophisticated propeller-driven bomber of World War II and the 1st bomber to property its crew in pressurized compartments. Though created to fight in the European theater, the B-29 found its niche on the other side of the globe. In the Pacific, B-29s delivered a selection of aerial weapons: standard bombs, incendiary bombs, mines, and two nuclear weapons.
On August 6, 1945, this Martin-built B-29-45-MO dropped the very first atomic weapon utilised in combat on Hiroshima, Japan. Three days later, Bockscar (on display at the U.S. Air Force Museum close to Dayton, Ohio) dropped a second atomic bomb on Nagasaki, Japan. Enola Gay flew as the advance climate reconnaissance aircraft that day. A third B-29, The Wonderful Artiste, flew as an observation aircraft on each missions.
Transferred from the United States Air Force.

“Sensible A/C Outlet position” #nerds #opinions
I bought the 500W 110 to 220 voltage converter (1) to power the Denon DN-X800 digital/analog mixer (pictured) and the Denon DN-2600F DJ CD player (not shown)—two pieces of 110V electronics which I purchased in the US. The cords of the Denon units are not very long so I put the converter on the shelves (two).
Turns out that this is the ideal position for all electronics so even even though I do not need to convert the voltage for 100-240V electronics e.g. the iPad / iPhone, I now also plug the charger into the converter simply because it saves me time scrambling on the floor seeking for outlet.
I believe that I am going to make a rack mount unit and just develop rows of outlet on desk level as that makes the most sense to me.
1. I bought mine at Sham Shui Po (SSP 深水埗) for HK0 (US).
2. Doron Lachisch’s Cubitec Shelving (2008) combines the exceptional strength and stability of injection-molded polypropylene with simple, modular design. Obtainable at Design and style Within Attain dwr.com — highly advisable. I purchased mine in 2009. Appears new til this day simply because it is effortlessly cleanable.
