Are you a sophmore in high school or college? Or perhaps just a sophmoric person? Plato said to Socrates --- how do you expect to learn if you refuse to listen -- you do not listen well Mr Tanker. And continue to misquote what I said. Get a life.
I called for a response from Donald Davidson in Indianapolis to go back in history and find this stupid story about Cooper. We want to know what knucklehead irresponsibly put that fuel in a military jet -- NOBODY from an FBO would have EVER put that fuel into it that was part of an FBO operation whether Cooper was an astronaut or god.
Here is the complete post from the "anonymous" just for you. Hope nobody else is wasting their time answering your questions since you won't listen to the answers.
Mazol Tov--Being Jewish and attaining that position--I am very glad you did not retire.
"Some years ago my partner, the late original seven-astranaut Gordon Cooper, along with ten others developed a new fuel for aviation. I witnessed Gordon filling his T-38, that the USAF assigned to him as his personal “bird”, with Methanol. I met him in Indiana when he was racing cars-he landed at a small airfield that had no Av-Karo.There were two 55 gallons of Methanol left, and he used that to make a non-stop flight back to Houston. I remember the G E people telling him that they could not believe how great a shape the engine was in-looked like new...I might add--aft-burners worked, but temptures were less than 50% of normal.
I will write you to give the USAF the formula.
I am retired and live in LA and Palm Desert. I see it working in Drowns as we tested a Williams turbine with it-my report was very good. I might also add that our super-cub obtained altitudes of 21,000 feet-book says on av-gas only 12,000.
Again-all the very best in your new job.
