Also the fuselage panels are “Fokker” made. Stork Fokker announced in March 2008 that it had won the contract for the design, production and integration of the tail section, the floor panels and the fuselage panels. A team of highly qualified engineers was stationed in Savannah much earlier to take an active role in the design process. The assembly is carried out at Stork Fokker in Papendrecht (Netherlands), where teams from both companies have been working together. The application of a new generation of composite materials in the rudder and elevator, and the use of a new welding method, are just two examples of the breakthrough technological innovations applied in the design of the new tail section. Fokker’s renowned expertise in metal bonding is used in the production of the fuselage panels.</strong></p> <pre><strong><strong><strong><strong><a

In the final two minutes, my jib went up and I started to bring the power on for the line right at the committee end. On starboard, I crossed the line under full power without issue leaving the boat pointing beautifully toward the first tack. The first one onto port went really cleanly and brought me up to the windward buoy lay line, I swung her through again and rounded the triangular buoy in the top ten out of the 85 strong mini fleet.</pre> <pre><strong><a href="http://ftnews.firetrench.com/bb.firetrench.com">bb.firetrench.com</a> <a href="http://ftd.firetrench.com/">ftd.firetrench.com</a></strong></pre> </div><!-- .entry-content --> <footer class="entry-meta"> <span class="cat-links"> <span class="entry-utility-prep entry-utility-prep-cat-links">Posted in</span> <a href="http://ftnews.firetrench.com/category/news/" rel="category tag">News</a> </span> <span class="sep"> | </span> <span class="comments-link"><a href="http://ftnews.firetrench.com/2009/09/mini-transat-leg-1-aboard-gbr-500/#respond"><span class="leave-reply">Leave a reply</span></a></span> </footer><!-- .entry-meta --> </article><!-- #post-16650 --> <article id="post-16648" class="post-16648 post type-post status-publish format-standard hentry category-news"> <header class="entry-header"> <h1 class="entry-title"><a href="http://ftnews.firetrench.com/2009/09/lockheed-martin-supports-successful-international-pac-3-missile-test-at-white-sands-missile-range/" rel="bookmark">Lockheed Martin Supports Successful International Pac-3 Missile Test at White Sands Missile Range</a></h1> <div class="entry-meta"> <span class="sep">Posted on </span><a href="http://ftnews.firetrench.com/2009/09/lockheed-martin-supports-successful-international-pac-3-missile-test-at-white-sands-missile-range/" title="2:26 pm" rel="bookmark"><time class="entry-date" datetime="2009-09-29T14:26:18+00:00">September 29, 2009</time></a><span class="by-author"> <span class="sep"> by </span> <span class="author vcard"><a class="url fn n" href="http://ftnews.firetrench.com/author/news-editor/" title="View all posts by News Editor" rel="author">News Editor</a></span></span> </div><!-- .entry-meta --> <div class="comments-link"> <a href="http://ftnews.firetrench.com/2009/09/lockheed-martin-supports-successful-international-pac-3-missile-test-at-white-sands-missile-range/#respond"><span class="leave-reply">Reply</span></a> </div> </header><!-- .entry-header --> <div class="entry-content"> <pre></pre> <pre></pre> <pre></pre> <pre></pre> <pre></pre> <pre></pre> <pre><img height="90" width="128" alt="LockheedPAC3missile1.jpg" id="image16647" src="http://ftnews.firetrench.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/LockheedPAC3missile1.thumbnail.jpg" /></pre> <pre></pre> <pre></pre> <pre>DALLAS, Sept. 28 <em class="moz-txt-slash"><span class="moz-txt-tag">/</span>PRNewswire<span class="moz-txt-tag">/</span></em> -- Airmen of the Japanese Self Defense Force and Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) successfully conducted the second Japanese PAC-3 Missile flight test recently at White Sands Missile Range, NM.
