Victorian Wallpaper - in popular emerald green - which contained poisonous arsenic Featured 9 Apr 2020 Image

Victorian Wallpaper - in popular emerald green - which contained poisonous arsenic

Victorian Wallpaper - in popular emerald green - which contained poisonous arsenic. William Morris, famed for his wallpaper designs, was the son of the owner of the largest arsenic producing company in the country. He was sceptical that arsenic was bad for you and held that because he had arsenical wallpaper in his home (and wasn't sick) it had to be something else! Morris did however stop using arsenic in their papers as the result of public pressure, newspaper reports and a general idea that arsenic was toxic, not just when ingested. Date: 19th century

Douglas B-18A Bolo 37-469 - N56847 (MSN 2469) at Tucson, Arizona - One of the first production Bolos, was delivered to Wright Field in 1937 for evaluation testing. Sold as N56847, converted to crop sprayer; by May 1969 stored derelict at Tucson, Arizona...... 37-469 was taken on strength in 1938, assigned to Wright Field in Dayton, OH, and used for evaluation testing. In 1942 it was declared restricted, redesignated RB-18A and relegated to utility work. After landing at Midland Field, TX on 20 June 1942. While ferrying from Wright Field, the plane sustained a mechanical failure while taxiing and suffered minor damage. In 1946 it was sold to G.H. Baldwin, who registered it as NC56847, and then in 1954 it was sold to Leo J Demers of Salem, OR, who converted it for use as a crop sprayer - duster. In that role, it passed through a few more hands until withdrawn from use and stored at Tucson, AZ in 1965. In 1969 it was acquired by Westernair of Albuquerque, NM, and stored at Albuquerque. While in storage it was sold to Dennis Hock, and in March 1971 it was ferried to the Air Force Museum where it was eventually restored, with the markings of a B-18 of the 38th Reconnaissance Squadron in 1939. This aircraft has an incorrect dorsal turret, which the museum has been attempting to locate a replacement for many years

General Aircraft GAL.56 - 01 TS507 Featured 9 Apr 2020 Image

General Aircraft GAL.56 - 01 TS507

General Aircraft GAL.56 - 01 TS507, Medium V at the 1947 Radlett SBAC show, 12-13 September 1947. GAL.56 - 01 TS507 Also known as the "Medium-V" version, had a constant 33.5 deg wing sweep-back at the leading edge, 28.4 deg at quarter chord. On 13 November 1944, Robert Kronfeld piloted the first flight at Farnborough, towed by an Armstrong Whitworth Whitley.. TS507 conducted numerous flights from RAF Dunholme Lodge and RAF Wittering, variously towed by a Whitley, Supermarine Spitfire, or a Handley Page Halifax. After May 1945, research flights continued at Farnborough, and in August 1947 it was transferred to the GAL Flight Test Department at Lasham Airfield, where the GAL.56 - 03 and GAL.56 - 04 were already employed for trials under contract to the Air Ministry.
Its flying characteristics proved so bad that test pilot Capt. Eric "Winkle" Brown RN later described it as the most difficult aircraft he ever flew, out of the many hundreds of types that he tested. On 12 February 1948, the TS507 was conducting a stalling trial after being towed to 10, 000 ft by a Halifax. The pilot, Robert Kronfeld, initiated a stall that progressed into an uncontrollable dive that caused both crew to lose consciousness. The observer, Barry MacGowan, awoke to find that the aircraft was level but inverted. He baled out successfully at low level, but Kronfeld died in the crash at Lower Froyle, near Lasham
