Who really broke the sound barrier first?

Captain Chuck Yeager
Breaking the sound barrier in flying was a crucial milestone in the history of aviation. October 14, marks the day when US Air Force pilot Captain Chuck Yeager first broke the sound barrier in 1947.

Are there any dc10s still flying?

In February 2014, the DC-10 made its last commercial passenger flight. Cargo airlines continue to operate it as a freighter, its largest operator is FedEx Express. A few DC-10s have been converted for aerial firefighting use. Some DC-10s are on display, while other retired aircraft are in storage.

Has a 747 ever broken the sound barrier?

As it shot across the Atlantic, the Boeing 747-400 jet reached a top ground speed of 825 mph. However, the jet did not actually break the sound barrier, because that is measured by its airspeed, or the speed of the plane relative to the air through which it is traveling.

Can the B 2 break the sound barrier?

B-2 bombers have a max speed of Mach 0.95, or 630 mph, and are not capable of breaking the sound barrier.

Why did the DC-10 fail?

A DC-10 jet crashes into a forest outside of Paris, France, killing all 346 people on board, on March 3, 1974. The poor design of the plane, as well as negligent maintenance, contributed to the disaster. The plane’s cabin lost pressure and the cabin floor collapsed.

Does McDonnell Douglas still make planes?

It sold 200 units, but was discontinued in 2001 after the merger with Boeing as it competed with the Boeing 777. The final commercial aircraft design to be made by McDonnell Douglas came in 1988.

Can the 747 go Mach 1?

A 747 is certainly capable of going supersonic. Boeing and other entities have tested it right up to the threshold of Mach 1 (around 0.98 or 0.99).

Can an airliner go supersonic?

Except for airliners specifically designed for transonic and supersonic flight (i.e. the Concorde), commercial airliners cannot normally fly at Mach I, or even very close to Mach I.

Was the F 14 a good plane?

If the mission is strictly fleet defense, the F-14 was a perfect platform. Indeed, the Tomcat is known to be a very fast airplane, with great sustained energy performance and, since it carried a great quantity of fuel which gave it a good endurance, the F-14 was also very good for high speed strike missions.

Is the SR-71 the fastest plane ever?

The SR-71 Blackbird remains the fastest operational military aircraft in history to this day, despite leaving service more than two decades ago, but its Lockheed predecessor in the A-12 was actually faster.

What is the otool command?

] DESCRIPTION The otool command displays specified parts of object files or libraries. If the, -m option is not used, the file arguments may be of the form libx.a (foo.o), to request information about only that object file and not the entire library.

Can I use otool on Linux machine?

Currently on Mac, I’m using OTOOL on ipa binary files and using the following commands: Now, I’ve to do the same operation, i.e reverse engineer the iOS applications, but now on the linux machine. AFAIK, OTOOL is not available for linux machine.

What is the difference between jtool and otool?

I’ve come across JTOOL which I think is most relevant till now. I can use it on linux, and it does something similar to OTOOL, but not exactly same. E.g. while using the -L command on JTOOL, I also need to specify architecture. However, OTOOL gives the shared libraries for all the available architectures.

Is there a LLVM equivalent of otool for Linux?

A number of tools are available from llvm on Linux and their page does list an otool equivalent. That doesn’t seem to be installed on my OS although a number of other llvm tools are such as llvm-nm and llvm-objdump that both support Mach-O binaries.
