This photo shows a collection of Air Force aircraft at the original Outagamie County Regional Airport on Ballard Road in Appleton. Between the closure of Whiting Field in the 1940’s (mentioned in a previous throwback post) and the opening of present day ATW in 1965, Outagamie County Regional Airport was located here. The most notable aircraft in this shot are the eight P-51 Mustangs. The P-51 was the premier fighter and bomber escort aircraft used during WWII. It was the first fighter that had the range to escort long-range bombers all the way to their targets and back to base. It was also faster and more agile than other fighters of its era. Many have said that the P-51’s revolutionary capabilities single handedly changed the war. #TBT

Check out this close-up view of the thrust reversers on a Delta A319! When your flight touches down and you hear a loud roar from the engines, that’s the pilots using reverse thrust to help slow down. The majority of all commercial jets have the ability to use reverse thrust, and in this video, you can see the reverse thrust mechanism in action. These particular jets have what’s called pivoting-door or “petal” reverse, where doors from the outer cowling of the engine pivot into the engine's airflow, deflecting thrust through the side of the engine.
Meet Michelle of Excelion Partners, one of our frequent flyers.
