    The biggest Achilles heel of the Boeing B-29 Superfortress was its Wright R-3350 radial engines- filled with glitches and prone to engine fires, things got so bad at one point that then-Senator Harry S Truman held committee hearings to look into the problem. While the engine design was partly to blame (the crankcase was made of a flammable magnesium metal), Wright Aeronautical was found to be sacrificing quality ...
  2. Liftoff!

    Liftoff! A UPS 767-300F departs 36L while an American Eagle ERJ-145 is on final approach for 36R at DFW. Usually this sort of shot is hard from Founders' Plaza due to heat haze but the north winds and cool temps kept it to a minimum on this particular day.
