US v. UK Air Battle

Posted 14 years ago by Adam Gautsch

The Rissington Podcast website design is sweet but I fear their air fleet would lose in a dog fight with OC's.

I like y'all picture, but it has a couple, actually 3 problems.

1 - It looks like an assembly line, but where are all the workers?
2 - The nose-art of planes is added by the end-user, not the manufacturer
3 - The vertical-support-column-to-factory-wall width is < the planes' wingspan; therefore it would be almost impossible to move the planes out of the building.

I'll give you the third one but the other two, no dice. It's not an assembly but instead a place to house and repair planes between bombings. I'm sure everyone, including me, knows the actual name for such a place but it isn't coming to the brain right now and I don't feel Googling.

I might agree, but I don't think the planes were regularly stored indoors in WWII.

"I don’t think the planes were regularly stored indoors in WWII."

Ahh, that's what made the OrangeCoat division so special.

Oh yeah, definitely a hangar where these special plans are kept and babied between missions. The support spacing isn't an issue as both ends are open (like most hangars). Although it IS a little on the narrow side and will require a FIFO system and perhaps a 17 pt-turn to park them as depicted.

Did anyone else have to Google FIFO?


Fine, I'm not smart.
