All About "U"
Last week's TRIPLE TRIVIA question came from Andy Sinclair, one of our Twitter followers, and he asks everyone:
How much more pavement is required for the -300 series to make a 180 degree "U" turn?
An additional 29 feet.
The 777-300ER requires 185 feet (57 meters) to make the required turn as the 772 requires 156 feet. The spaces required, however, can be lessened by using different brakes and/or asymmetrical thrusting..
Once again, thank you so much Andy for your submission!
Now onto this week..
Tuesday, February Twenty-Six
