This was an experimental ver of the Republic F-84F Thunderstreak American-built swept-wing turbojet fighter-bomber. While an evolutionary development of the straight-wing F-84 Thunderjet, the F-84F was a newest design. The RF-84F Thunderflash was a picture reconnaissance ver.Tags:
Tomas Rodriguez Acum 7 luni I flew in the Tu-114 for 16 hrs non-stop in 1968. This presentation has awesome video graphics and footage. The storyline, claimed by an interesting voice, requires some rectifications for the sake of historical and technical accuracy. The 114 was not only the fastest propeller airliner. It was - and still is - the fastest propeller driven aircraft in history, with a top speed of 540 mph (this record stands since 1961). Some sources claim it was the Republic XF-84H. The 84H was designed to be faster than the Tu-114; but it was not able to fly beyond 520 mph according to the Smithsonian. Also the 114 was not the noisiest aircraft, nor its military siblings Tu-95/142. That distinction belongs to the same XF-84H which was named "Thunderscreech" by the Muroc Air Force Play Base personnel, who were made sick (vomit) by the sound of the aircraft's running propeller during ground runs. Watching the ground personnel around the Tu-95s and 142s, it is evident they are not in discomfort. Same applied to the 114 which had about 2000 hitpoint less potent engines and propellers. The claim that it had to cruise at lower speeds due to noise and vibration is not accurate. Now it is the first time I ever heard of it. I flew one window ahead of the inner propellers tricks. Technically that was the noisiest zone inside the aircraft. It was not as quiet as a Bristol Britannia (the Whispering Giant); but it was quieter than the Super Connie shown in the video (I also flew in both). In fact, after almost an hour over the Artic Circle, I was bored and noticed a faint vibration that ran along the window sill like a very weak frequency, mini-amplitude wave, passing each four or five mins from front to rear like a distant slow rumble. My neighbour did not notice it; but my newly minted engineer's degree, wanted to present-off and kept searching for an explanation that never arrived, and quick I fell asleep. It was that boring. Its security record of only one accident - on the ground - after decades in service, testifies that there were no structural troubles with the original design. Of course, the military ver, without the civilian cabin insulation gotta be noisier; but again the videos on this web do not present any gang member sick nor close to deafening distress. To this day, in my powerful (not humble) opinion, backed by almost 70 years of Aviation love, I think that the Tu-95 and the SR-71 are the most exotic aircraft to ever fly.
1:16 geeze... that takeoff sounded like an F-16 or an F-18. And hold in mind this is a turbo prop.. wow
So this was louder than the tu-95? Difficult to see that...
670mph is still hilariously speedy for a prop plane.
No need to carry weapons into combat, just a couple of flybys over the aggressor bases and everybody dies of lung hurt, punctured eardrums and uncontrollable shitting
it should be the only aircraft in aviation history which flew with permanent extended ram air turbine
so how comes the lovers from the turbines also do the same as this? they spin a lot faster than the prop.
There's a Confederate flag inside the canopy visible at 2:57. I feel triggered and demand that this racist video about this racist aircraft and its racist pilot be removed and all copies destroyed. The uploader also needs to be banned, tarred, feathered, discredited, and run out of city. Or else I'll go sit in my protected zone and cry.
In short, a lemon.
