THE BRITISH BOMBER AND THE NUCLEAR BOMB

THE BRITISH BOMBER AND THE NUCLEAR BOMB(The end. Start at # 1 ’03)

 

The CANBERRA bomber is an all-metal monoplane with a mid-wing and single-fin tail. The fuselage — semi-monocoque circular cross-section, consists of three parts: fore, middle (with the attachment of the center section and bomb Bay) and tail. The fuselage skin riveted “wpoty”. Sealed cockpit and Navigator situated in the nose of the fuselage. Cabin pressure is automatically controlled; the temperature sets the pilot. The canopy is molded from two layers of clear Plexiglas; between the layers circulating dry heated air tapped from the engine compressor.

 
Armchair Navigator located behind the pilot’s seat on versions V. 1, V. 2, V. 6 and ahead — V. 8. Both seat ejection. Above the navigation station in the fuselage there is an emergency hatch. Fold hatch of the bomb Bay opening to clean the inside of the fuselage, gliding on rollers in curved guides. Actuator valves — hydraulic.
 
A wing with aspect ratio of 4.3 has a symmetrical profile with a relative thickness of 12% at a root and 9 on the ends. Detachable console attached to the center section using the nodes on the main spar and the rear auxiliary spar-wall. The stringers are attached to the wing ribs of a small uskovym bolts. Flaps located on the wing portions on both sides of the nacelles are controlled hydraulically.

Brake pads top and bottom of the wing, consisting of individual profiles, channel cross sections, are deflected vertically upward and downward with rotation against the flow, speaking thus at the surface of the wing 305 mm. for the Ailerons with a spring controlled compensators and trimmers.
 
The stabilizer can be deflected in flight from the neutral position up and down 1°52‘ electric. The Elevator has a spring compensator and controlled trimmer. On rudder trimmer driven; in addition, there is an actuator which automatically deflects the rudder when the thrust asymmetry of the engines. Harness control the rudders and ailerons hard.

BOMBER ENGLISH ELECTRIC CANBERRA
 
Main landing gear of the firm English Electric retracts in the wing between the engine nacelles and the fuselage. Depreciation of fixed racks oil-air. Wheels fitted with pneumatic brakes; later they were replaced by hydraulic. Double oriented and self-aligning the front wheel retracts into the compartment of the fuselage, located in front of the pressurized cabin. Shock it rack melanoplinae. The actuator of the landing gear electro-hydraulic.
