The transcontinental C-38A is a special mission Gulfstream 100. The C-38A flies farther, faster and more efficiently than any othe...r priced business jet aircraft and provides the necessary communications technology. The C-38A is equipped for commercial flight operations under Federal Aviation Administration guidelines. The Air Force accepted the first of two C-38A aircraft on April 17, 1998. The transcontinental C-38A is a special mission Gulfstream 100. The aircraft is in service with the 201st Airlift Squadron, Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland. The introduction of the C-38A has dramatically improved the squadron's effectiveness. The C-38A flies farther, faster and more efficiently than any other similarly priced business jet aircrafts and provides the necessary communications technology. The Air Force accepted the first of two C-38A aircraft 17 April 1998. The C-38A was procured by Aeronautical Systems Center's commercial aircraft integrated product team, in partnership with the single program director at Oklahoma City Air Logistics Center, Tinker AFB, Okla. The program's logistics support includes a $5.2 million contract to provide depot support and Contractor Operated and Managed Base Support functions. The C-38A acquisition program used streamlined acquisition reform techniques focused on saving time and funds. The C-38As will be sustained by the integrated product team at Tinker. The C-38A was produced and supported by Galaxy Aerospace and offered by Tracor Incorporated at Austin, Texas as prime contractor, which received green' aircraft from Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI). The C-38As were accepted from the subcontractor JetCorp at St. Louis, Maryland, who is responsible for the installation of a part of the equipment, the test phase, maintenance and technical advice to pilots. Another subcontractor is Duncan Aviation at Lincoln, Nebraska for the paint job and the installation of the auxiliary power unit (APU). The pilots and the maintenance personnel were trained at the Flight Safety International Service Center in New Castle, Delaware. Dimensions: 13.875L x 15W x 6H Read More

The Space Shuttle Orbiter is the Space Shuttle's orbital vehicle. The orbiter carries most of the main propulsion system for reusa...ble purpose, but the propellant for the three main engines is fed by an external Tank, and solid boosters, helping it to propel during the first two minutes of ascent. Its crew cabin consists of the flight deck, mid-deck and the utility area. The Orbiter has a large 60 ft. by 15 ft. payload bay, filling most of the mid-fuselage. There are three Space Shuttle Main Engines (SSMEs) mounted on the Orbiter's aft fuselage in a triangular pattern. The Orbital Maneuvering System (OMS) provides orbital maneuvers, including insertion, circularization, transfer, rendezvous, abort to orbit and abort once around. The Reaction Control System (RCS) provides altitude control and translation along with the pitch, roll and yaw axes during the flight phases of orbit insertion, orbit and re-entry. The Thermal Protection System (TPS) covers the outside of the Orbiter for protection from cold temperature. The Orbiter is made primarily from aluminum alloy. There are six individual orbiters; the Enterprise, Columbia, Challenger, Discovery, Atlantis and Endeavour. Dimensions: 7L x 5W x 2.64H Read More

The F-22 Raptor was born out of the Advanced Tactical Fighter (ATF) demonstration and validation program to develop a next-generat...ion air superiority fighter to counter emerging worldwide threats. It is the newest fighter aircraft of the United States Air Force (USAF). Though originally an air superiority fighter for use against the Soviet Air Force, it is also capable of ground attack, electronic warfare and signals intelligence roles. The F-22 is a combination of stealth, supercruise, maneuverability, integrated avionics and improved supportability. It performs both air-to-air and air-to-ground missions, making it vital to the USAF. The Raptor is capable of providing first-kill opportunities against threats. Its sophisticated aerodesign, advanced flight controls, thrust vectoring and high thrust-to-weight ratio provide the capability to outmaneuver all current and projected aircraft. Intended to be the leading American advanced tactical fighter in the early part of the 21st century, the Raptor is the world's most expensive fighter to date. In 1981, the Air Force put out a requirement for a new air superiority fighter that would replace the capability of the F-15 Eagle, incorporating emerging technologies such as advanced alloys, fly-by-wire flight control systems and stealth technology. In October 1986, two contractor teams, Lockheed/Boeing/General Dynamics and Northrop/McDonnell Douglas, were selected to build prototypes. In August 1991, after a fly-off competition, Lockheed's YF-22 was declared the winner and the company was awarded the contract to produce the ATF. In April 1992, during flight testing, the first YF-22 prototype crashed while landing. The test pilot was able to escape uninjured. When the first production model was unveiled, the plane was formally named F-22 Raptor. The F-22's maiden flight was on September 7, 1997. In September 2002, USAF leaders gave the redesignation F/A-22, but on December 12, 2005, it was changed back to F-22. On December 15, 2005, the Raptor entered service. Air Education and Training Command and Air Combat Command are the primary Air Force organizations operating the aircraft. In 2006, the Raptor's development team won the Collier Trophy, the most prestigious American aviation award. There are currently 91 F-22s in active service. Dimensions: 15.25L x 17W x 6H Read More
