G'Day Iconic Aircraft Members,

I am new to your forum, but British aircraft are in my blood Grandfather was pilot WWII in GB.

In the 1970's I spent ten years in Papua New Guinea & collected a great deal of wreckage and WWII relics , it was ok to do so then & my efforts Saved a great deal of wreckage from the scrappers.

What I have to share with this forum today is some what unique ; HN-3 missile wreckage from the 2007 Satellite that the chinese shot down.
In May 2011 I salvaged this wreckage off the far Nth Est Coast of Japan in the Pacific ocean.
These are the worlds first known pictures of this wreckage & worth a look.

Amazing facts surround the event of the worlds first satellite knock down from space by this missile.

Missile speed 76,000 klph missile weight 19 Ton , satellite speed 24,000 klph satellite weight a couple of hundred KG

Impact speed 100,000 klph !

It only required the smallest " Touch " to disintegrate the satellite.

Thus we see large parts of the HN-3 missile wreckage intact and all those " IC " panels in perfect condition.

Yes its For Sale to at U.S$25,000.00

Ignor the $ price on Facebook thats a price for the U.S military .........if they ever bother to respond to my offer.

The Facebook sales pitch wrote:Metal is Durralium which is aerospace metal also used in some military functions, first applied to Hind Attack Helicopters in Afghanistan by the Russians as the metal is Bullet Proof.


Obviously, there's no point in letting the facts get in the way of a good story. :)) :))

Duralumin;
The earliest known attempt to use duralumin for a heavier-than-air aircraft structure occurred in 1916, when Hugo Junkers first introduced its use in the creation of the Junkers J 3's airframe.

...........and the HN-3 is a cruise missile powered by a turbofan engine, so how it got high enough to affect a satellite needs some further explanation. =)) =)) =))

Damn clever, the Chinese.

I am glad the mods haven't pulled this post as it is quite hilarious. Akin to getting an offer you can't refuse from the Nigerian Finance Minister. =))
