Wright-Patt gets new research radar towers

Staff Sgt. Maurice Acosta and Tech. Sgt. Jordan Bunting inspect wiring atop a radar tower at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio. Active duty Airmen from the 820th RED HORSE Squadron at Nellis Air Force Base, Nev. and Air National Guard members from six states teamed in September to construct three 100-foot research radars towers for the Air Force Research Laboratory Sensors Directorate at Wright-Patt. The actual radars atop each tower were relocated from Rome, N.Y. to implement consolidation directed by BRAC 2005 decisions. Sergeants Acosta and Bunting are each with the 820th RHS Airborne Flight.

First air cargo delivery re-enacted

Advanced ceramic matrix composite fabric and conceptual models of micro-aerial vehicles being developed by the Air Force Research Laboratory served as cargo aboard a Wright “B” Flyer during a Oct. 2, 2010 reenactment of the world’s first cargo flight. The original flight took place Nov. 7, 1910, and was made by Wright Company pilot Phil Parmelee in a Wright Model “B” when he flew 200 pounds of silk cloth from Huffman Prairie Flying Field (now part of Wright-Patterson Air Force Base) to Columbus, Ohio.

Adrian DeNardo explains how the Air Force investing in research, development and certification of advanced renewable biofuel blends to reduce demand for traditional petroleum-based JP-8 jet fuel. Mr. DeNardo was among Air Force Research Laboratory experts on hand during a reception Oct. 2, 2010 at Rickenbacker International Airport, following a reenactment of the world’s first cargo flight nearly 100 years earlier. While the original flight in a Wright “B” Flyer carried silk cloth, AFRL provided cargo for the reenactment, including concept micro aerial vehicle models and an advanced ceramic matrix composite fabric. Mr. DeNardo works for AFRL’s Propulsion Directorate. (U.S. Air Force photo/Derek Kaufman)
