Aero-TV: Jump Takeoff Gyros -- Dick Degraw's Homemade Masterpieces

Gyros That Jump... Who'da Thunk It?

Dick Degraw is an aircraft builder whose creations attract serious onlookers. Not many self-taught engineers and machinists branch out from racing and servicing motorcycles to building and flying their own deep-intermeshed, twin rotor helicopters, but that's just one of Dick's novel creations. "Gyrhino," his scratch-built vertical takeoff gyroplane, has a transparent fuselage for ease of inspection, but that also puts everything he's built for the machine in clear view.

ANN's Daily Aero-Term (11.01.10): Thunder

Thunder The sound emitted by rapidly expanding gases along the channel of a lightning discharge. Over three-quarters of lightning's electrical discharge is used in heating the gases in the atmosphere in and immediately around the visible channel. Temperatures can rise to over 10,000 °C in microseconds, resulting in a violent pressure wave, composed of compression and rarefaction. The rumble of thunder is created as one's ear catches other parts of the discharge, the part of the lightning flash nearest registering first, then the parts further away.
