2000-08-15, Dron: HELENA, Montana (CNN) — A pilot was killed on Sunday when his helicopter crashed while making water drops on one of many wildfires raging in the western United States. The firefighter, whose identity was not released, was battling a blaze in a remote area about 50 miles east of Fallon, Nevada, which had already consumed 37,700 acres. The pilot was the eighth firefighter killed fighting wildfires this year, and the second killed in a helicopter crash this month in Nevada. On Monday, the National Fire Information Center reported 82 large fires burning across 919,710 acres. Although firefighters contended Sunday with seven additional fires, they took satisfaction in their accomplishment.

2000-08-11, Dron: Two bodies have been recovered and two people are missing following the crash Thursday of a U.S. Navy helicopter in the Gulf of Mexico some 15 miles south of Corpus Christi, Texas, a Navy spokeswoman told CNN. Two other crewmembers were rescued from the water shortly after the crash of their MH-53E Sea Dragon helicopter, the Navy said. One crewman was rescued almost immediately after the crash by a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter and the second was plucked from the water by another Navy MH-53E flying from a minesweeping ship operating in the area, according to the Navy. The rescued crewmembers were taken to Spohn Memorial Hospital in Corpus Christi. Their condition was said only to be "stable," according to the Navy. Navy search and rescue teams, assisted by the Coast Guard and the USS Gladiator, a mine countermeasure ship that was in the vicinity, were searching for the missing crewmembers. The downed helicopter, used primarily for airborne minesweeping and mine hunting, was on a "routine training mission" when…

2000-08-09, Dron: LAS VEGAS (AP) - An F-16 jet crashed in the Nevada desert Tuesday after apparently clipping another jet during a training exercise, military officials said. The lone pilot ejected safely and the other plane landed without incident. The plane crashed about 5 p.m. some 70 miles north of Nellis Air Force Base, base spokesman Lt. Allan Herritage said. Another F-16 landed a short time later with minor damage, leading investigators to speculate the planes struck each other in midair, he said. The extent of damage to the second plane was not released, but Herritage said the pilot was not hurt. A helicopter crew was dispatched to rescue the downed pilot, who suffered scrapes and bruises. It was the second jet crash in a week for the base. An F-15 crashed north of Rachel, Nev., on Thursday while the pilot was leading seven other planes in a training exercise. The pilot ejected and was not injured. His plane crashed into a dry lake bed 125 miles north of Las Vegas. copyright Associated Press Note: It was 6th F-16 loss…

2000-08-01, Serge Pod: Sea Launch Places Communications Satellite in Orbit A Zenit 3SL rocket successfully launched an American communications satellite for the multinational Sea Launch company Friday, the first since a failed launch in March. The Zenit lifted off on schedule at 6:42 pm EDT (2242 UT) Friday, July 28, from Sea Launch's mobile, floating launch platform, located on the Equator at 154 degrees west longitude in the Pacific Ocean. Its payload, the PAS-9 satellite for PanAmSat, was placed into a geosynchronous transfer orbit about one hour and 45 minutes after launch. "Today's success clearly establishes Sea Launch's position as a proven launch services provider," said Sea Launch president Will Trafton. "We how have three very successful missions and have moved into full scale operations." The launch is the first for Sea Launch since a March 12 launch that failed to place its payload, the ICO F-1 satellite for communications company ICO, into orbit. That failure was traced to a software glitch that failed to close a…

2000-08-01, Serge Pod: Zvezda Docks with International Space Station The Russian-built Zvezda service module successfully docked with the International Space Station Tuesday evening, completing a key step in the assembly of the orbiting facility. Zvezda made contact with the Zarya module of the ISS at 8:45 pm EDT Tuesday evening (0045 UT Wednesday). No major problems were reported with the automated docking, which took place while the spacecraft passed over Kazakhstan, in range of Russian ground stations. "We have contact confirmed, capture is confirmed," said NASA spokesperson Kyle Herring, covering the docking from the Russian mission control center in Korolev, outside of Moscow. "We have a successful capture of the Zvezda as it becomes a permanent member of the International Space Station." During the docking Zvezda served as the passive target, as the ISS — composed of the Zarya and Unity modules — maneuvered towards Zvezda. During the final approach the ISS approached Zvezda at the rate of just 0.2 meters per…

2000-07-31, Serge Pod: MOSCOW, July 27 (AFP) - Russia is likely to sell 10 Il-76 troop transporter planes to China, the head of Russian aeronautics firm Ilyushin, Victor Livanov, said Thursday, quoted by the AVN news agency. A preliminary contract for the planes, worth between 30 and 35 million dollars each, has been agreed and Livanov said the deal would probably go ahead. A second contract for a further 10 planes is also possible. Russia's last sale of Il-76s to China was in 1994. China is one of Russia's main arms clients.

2000-07-26, Serge Pod: Russia and China to cooperate on use of GPS 25 July 2000 The Russian Interfax agency has reported that Russia and China could be close agreeing co-operation in the use and future development of Russia's global navigational system Glonass. Russia's Deputy Prime Minister Ilya Klebanov has said that ways of such bilateral co-operation were explored during Russian President Vladimir Putin's visit to Beijing at Putin's meeting with his Chinese counterpart Jiang Zemin. Glonass, is a twin of the American GPS system that allows aircraft and "smart" munitions to calculate with high precision their position anywhere in the world. The first GLONASS satellites were launched into orbit in 1982. The constellation now comprises 10 active satellites and is due for an upgrade in the next few years. DSD

2000-07-04, Serge Pod: Australian Trials for Su-35 and Su-32 As part of the ongoing effort to keep Russia in the frame for the replacement of the Australian F-111s and F/A-18s under the Air 6000 contract, timed to occur in distant 2020 and 2015, respectively, Sukhoi have offered the Australian Air Force an Su-35 and Su-32FN for extended trials. This is a recurrence of reports of an offer made earlier this year after presentations by Sukhoi and Rosvooruzhenie in Australia in November 1999. The effect of the offer, according to local media, has been to make Sukhoi serious contenders Sukhoi have also reiterated their desire to become involved with Australian producers in the future development of the aircraft. The initial offering involved the possible production of wings by Hawker de Havilland, but recent reports suggest that the Russians have also proposed cooperation on a long-range air-to-air missile.

2000-07-04, Serge Pod: Inside Kazan`s Best-Kept Secret [24 May 2000] The Kazan helicopter plant fell on hard times in the last decade but has started to thrive since it became a private enterprise. KAZAN – Until the early 1990s, this was a closed city to foreigners. What made it such a sensitive site was the Kazan Helicopter Plant, which manufactured up to 300 military choppers a year and was considered to be one of the most important facilities of its type in the country. Russia`s military may have fallen on hard times over the last decade, but the helicopter plant, now operating as a private enterprise, has succeeded in adapting to a post-Soviet role. And most observers say it is continuing to thrive as the new century gets under way. But what doesn’t seem to have changed is the sensitive nature of the plant’s operations. After repeated promises, first for an interview with plant officials, then for answers to general questions, the firm`s management suddenly decided not to talk, saying only that: ``It`s not in our interest to…

2000-06-26, Serge Pod: 26 June 2000 Lockheed Martin's second X-35 concept demonstrator aircraft for the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) programme has successfully completed structural loads testing at company facilities in Palmdale in California. A test fixture with 90 hydraulic actuators applied stresses to different parts of the aircraft to simulate in-flight aerodynamic pressure loads on the aircraft. The aircraft tested is the X-35C, which is configured as the US Navy carrier variant and is the second demonstrator aircraft assembled. Because the different variants are structurally very similar, the load-test results apply to all three concept demonstrator variants. The aircraft was tested to 100 percent of design limit load, minus 3 gs and plus 8 gs. This means the wings were stressed to carry about 180,000 pounds, or the weight of 50 mid-size cars. Test conditions also included wing torsional testing that represents aircraft rolling manoeuvres. Proof-of-operations tests confirmed the control surfaces would not bind against…
