Spitfire - Star of Israel

A advisor, pictorial historical past and severe publication in regards to the remarkable Spitfire and the D130 outfitted from Scrap and Spare elements in 1948! ! From D132 onward those devices have been from a purchase order from the Russian ordered sale by means of the Czech Air strength. excellent gift for that Air aircraft fan or historian.

Example text

For maximum effectiveness the resulting debris should be cleaned from the cut by the expanding blast gases so as to leave clear space for the breakage from each hole in turn. With increased depth of cut the required distance of throw to effect complete clearance increases. By using short delay detonators each successive charge-blast may be made to follow its predecessor so closely that momentum of the broken mass can be maintained, almost in the nature of a fluid flow of rock fragments, during the overall period of the total blast.

Two empirical tests, used to classify explosives on a comparative basis, are the ballistic mortar test and the Trauzl lead-block test. Ballistic Mortar Test This measures the ability of a measured charge, when detonated, to deflect a heavy steel mortar. The "strength" of the explosive is then expressed as a percentage of the strength of T N T , as demonstrated by the same test. Trauzl Lead-block Test This test measures the distension produced by detonating 20 g of the explosive, using standard procedure, in a lead cylinder.
