55 Tahun Lalu, Antonov An-22 Antei, Turboprop Terbesar di Dunia Terbang…,Mewahnya Airbus A380, Sampai Punya Dua Lift untuk Manjakan Penumpang

first_imgAnotonov An-22. Foto: Twitter Antonov Company Pada hari ini, tepat 55 tahun, Antonov An-22 Antei, pesawat turboprop terbesar di dunia terbang perdana di langit Kiev, Ukraina, pada 27 Februari 1965. Pesawat dengan kapasitas payload maksimum sampai 80 ton tersebut pada penghujung tahun 2018 silam, digadang-gadang menjadi penyebab sumber suara bising yang di langit Jawa Tengah, khususnya Krapyak, Pekalongan, Semarang, hingga Kendal. Setelah ditelusuri lebih jauh, usut punya usut, suara tersebut memang berasal dari pesawat Antonov, tetapi bukan Antonov An-22 Antei, melainkan berasal dari Antonov An-12.Baca juga: Oleg Konstantinovich Antonov – Sosok Legendaris di Balik Nama Besar “The Mammoth” An-225Meski demikian, faktanya, An-22 pada dasarnya merupakan versi yang “dibesarkan” atau dikembangkan dari An-12, kecuali desain ekornya yang didesain ulang menjadi sirip ekor vertikal kembar. Pesawat ini menghasilkan performa luar biasa dengan pemakaian empat mesin turboprop yang sangat powerful, masing-masing memakai baling-baling contra-rotating yang menghasilkan slipstream signifikan di atas sayap. Dikutip KabarPenumpang.com dari laman Indomiliter.com, Kamis, (27/2), Antonov An-22 dalam kode NATO disebut sebagai “Cock,” pesawat ini terlahir di masa kejayaan Uni Soviet. Dirancang oleh Antonov Design Bureau. Pesawat ini terbang perdana di Kiev, Ukraina pada 18 Agustus 1964 dan penampakan perdana prototipe An-22 pada Paris AirShow 1965, kemudian resmi diluncurkan dua tahun kemudian pada 1967.Selain ukurannya yang raksasa, yaitu panjang 57 meter dan lebar bentang sayap 64,4 meter, dan dapat terbang sejauh 5.000 km, ciri khas dari An-22 adalah penggunaan mesin turboprop dengan sepasang baling-baling yang berputar berlawanan arah, sama dengan yang ada di Tupolev Tu-114. Seperti halnya pakem C-130 Hercules, An-22 mengadopsi empat unit mesin. Antonov memilih mesin turboprop Kuznetsov NK-12MA yang setiap mesinnya dapat menghasilkan tenaga 15.000 shp.Antonov An-22 juga punya kemampuan mumpuni dalam berbagai operasi, yakni kemampuan untuk lepas landas dari lapangan udara yang punya runway keras, tidak beraspal, dan pendek, sehingga memungkinkan pasukan linud untuk melakukan operasi pendaratan udara.Di samping itu, Antonov An-22 juga bisa digunakan untuk mengangkut penumpang, dengan kapasistas masksimal 36 orang, 28 penumpang dan sisanya awak pesawat. Berbeda dengan kabin penumpang dan kokpit yang bertekanan, ruang kargonya tidak bertekanan sehingga memungkinkan pintu kargo dibuka saat terbang untuk paradrops, layaknya pesawat Hercules yang sangat populer di Indonesia.Baca juga: Dijual! Rumah Lengkap Dengan Bandara Plus Dua Antonov An-2Menariknya, usai Uni Soviet bubar, bagian mesin dan elektronik dari Antonov sempat diembargo oleh Rusia. Pasalanya, Antonov An-22 diproduksi oleh salah satu negara pecahan Uni Soviet, yakni Uzbekistan, melalui Tashkent State Aircraft Factory. Meski demikian, pada akhirnya, setelah lobi-lobi alot, Rusia akhirnya mengumumkan negara bagian bekas Soviet untuk bergabung dengan imperium baru dalam Federasi Rusia. Keuntungannya, negara adidaya tersebut akan membantu dalam pengembangan sistem baru plus akan memberi subsidi.Sejak produksinya dimulai tahun 1966 dan berakhir pada tahun 1976, total sudah dibuat 68 unit An-22 dalam empat varian. Pada Desember 2018, enam unit An-22 masih dioperasikan 76th Military Transport Air Squadron AU Rusia, dimana tinggal tiga unit yang berstatus layak terbang. Kesemuanya direncanakan masih akan terus dioperasikan sampai tahun 2033.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… Relatedlast_img read more

UWF Takes 16-Game Winning Streak to Union

first_imgThe Pitching, Wow The three-game set will start with a doubleheader on Saturday beginning at 1 pm, and the series finale on Sunday will also start at 1 pm. All three games will feature live stats and a live video broadcast, and links for each can be found at GoArgos.com. What Has Happened Since We Last Lost? #ARGOS#Print Friendly Version Becca Taylor is Pitcher of the Week Again FULL GAME NOTESLIVE STATSLIVE VIDEO The series with Union will begin on April 1, marking just the fourth time UWF has played on April Fool’s Day since 2006. In 2015, the Argonauts split a doubleheader against Spring Hill, with a 4-2 win and a 4-6 loss. In 2012, North Alabama came to Pensacola and the Argonauts swept the Lions 5-3 and 3-2. On that unfortunate April 1, 2011, Valdosta State took two from West Florida, 0-4 and 3-11. The fact that UWF has not had many contests on April 1 could be a simple math issue. April 1 has historically occurred on a Wednesday, Friday or Sunday (58 times each) than on any other day of the week. While there has not been much UWF action on April 1, some other big events have occurred on April Fool’s Day. For example, President Dwight Eisenhower authorized the creation of the Air Force on April 1, 1954. On the date in 1976, Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne formed Apple, Inc., and Google announced Gmail to the public in 2004. We’ve Won 16 in a Row For the second time this season, Becca Taylor was chosen as the Gulf South Conference Softball Pitcher of the Week. Taylor threw 20 scoreless innings against Spring Hill and Christian Brothers, striking out 18 batters, walking 0 and going 3-0 during the week. Taylor leads the GSC with 15 wins, going 3-0 last week and holding opponents to a .159 batting average. She spun complete game shutouts on Wednesday and Sunday, before blanking the Lady Bucs for another five frames on Monday afternoon. Last week was just the latest in a tremendous stretch for Taylor. Since the Alabama Huntsville series in mid-March, Taylor had thrown 31.1 consecutive shutout innings – a mark that ranks as the 10th-longest in GSC history. That scoreless innings run came to an end on Thursday in the first inning against Montevallo, but Taylor has still allowed just 4 earned runs in her last 48 innings, good for a 0.58 ERA.  Taylor ranks near the top in several other categories in the conference, as well. In addition to her league lead in wins, she is second in the league in innings pitched (118.1), fourth in strikeouts (77), sixth in ERA (2.01) and seventh in opposing batting average (.226).center_img About Union The sports world has been busy since UWF last lost on March 5. In professional sports, the United States defeated Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic to claim its first championship in the tournament’s history, and the NFL voted to move the Oakland Raiders to Las Vegas beginning in 2019 or 2020. More importantly, several other UWF have seen a great deal of success in the last 26 days. The women’s basketball team continued its run in the NCAA Tournament, going as far as the Elite Eight and bringing home a South Region Championship for the first time in program history. The swimming and diving team competed at the NCAA Championships in Birmingham, Alabama, finishing sixth overall for the second consecutive year. Theresa Michalak won four individual national championships and set three NCAA DII records, and Monica Amaral won both diving titles for the second time, and they were named the NCAA Swimmer of the Year and Diver of the Year, respectively. In all, UWF had 22 All-Americans between the nine student-athletes who qualified for the trip. The women’s golf team took a 19-shot victory at the Bama Beach Bash in Gulf Shores, Alabama, on March 19, with Paloma Vaccaro taking the individual title and Lauren Lamm finishing just a shot behind her. On the men’s side, Chandler Blanchet, who is ranked No. 1 in DII, won the Bobcat Invitational in Eatonton, Georgia, to claim his fourth win of the year. Men’s tennis made the leap to No. 1 in the country in the latest ITA National Men’s Rankings, and the UWF women’s tennis team moved up to No. 6. The men’s team has beaten No. 1 Hawaii Pacific, No. 3 Armstrong Atlantic and No. 12 UC San Diego this month. The baseball team has also gone on a strong run, winning its last 10 games and have jumped up to second place in the GSC standings, just a game back of Delta State. Winners of seven of their last nine, the Union Bulldogs bring a 21-15 record into the weekend series against UWF. In the team’s most recent GSC series, Union took two of three from West Alabama at home to improve to 6-12 in the conference. Union third baseman and freshman Ashley Scott leads the team with a .407 batting average, 44 hits, 10 doubles, 5 triples, 39 RBI, a .704 slugging percentage and a .458 on-base percentage. Gabby Morris is not too far behind Scott, hitting .394 and leading the team with 6 home runs. Union is second in the GSC in slugging (.476) and on-base percentage (.400) and third in hitting (.331). The Bulldogs pitching staff is led by Hannah Ridolfi, who has a 2.99 ERA in 112.1 innings pitched, with 10 complete games on the year. Morris has also spent some time in the circle, with 57 strikeouts in 59 innings and a 4.51 ERA. West Florida leads Union 10-3 in the all-time series. Perhaps the biggest improvement in UWF’s performance during the 16-game winning streak has been in the circle. The staff, made up of Becca Taylor, Sarah Maloney and Taylor Rolison, has put together a 0.71 ERA with six shutouts and a .192 opponent batting average during the run. That’s not to say UWF pitching has struggled this year, as the Argonauts lead the GSC in shutouts (11) and opponent batting average (.219), and the staff is second in strikeouts (184) and ERA (2.18). Taylor has led UWF during the streak with a 0.58 ERA and six complete games in 10 starts, holding the opposition to a .178 batting average and allowing just seven walks in 60 innings. Maloney has put together a 0.99 ERA with a 5-0 record in six starts and has struck out more than a batter per inning, and Rolison has held opponents to a .188 batting average and struck out 12 in 13.2 innings. West Florida is fourth in DII with 11 shutouts on the year, and Taylor is 10th in the country with 15 wins. That total for Taylor leads the GSC, while Maloney leads the conference in strikeouts per seven innings (7.9) and ranks second in the conference in hits allowed per seven innings (5.1). Rolison ranks in the top 10 in the league in strikeouts per seven innings (6.3; 5th) and in hits allowed per seven (5.53; 3rd). On April Fool’s Day West Florida picked up its 16th consecutive win on Thursday with an 8-1 victory at Montevallo. Reigning Gulf South Conference Pitcher of the Week Becca Taylor earned her 15th win, pitching five innings of one-run ball with six strikeouts and no walks. Last week, Taylor threw 20 scoreless innings with 18 strikeouts and no walks against Christian Brothers and Spring Hill. This is West Florida’s longest winning streak since 2005, when the Argonauts won 27 in a row during their 60-win season. The Argonauts have hit .345 and slugged an impressive .493 over their last 16 contests, with 31 stolen bases in 36 tries. Six players are hitting over .300 and nine players have at least one extra-base hit. Caitlin Steel’s .459 batting average leads the team, while Jacey Castro leads UWF with 14 RBI and 24 hits. UWF’s pitching has improved in every way over the last 16 games. Becca Taylor, Sarah Maloney and Taylor Rolison have pitched to a combined 0.71 ERA over 109 innings, with 97 strikeouts and a .192 opponent batting average. Taylor has thrown 60 innings with a 0.58 ERA, and batters have hit .178 against her during the streak. West Florida had a 14-game winning streak during the last month of the 2016 season, which started with the Christian Brothers series on March 25. Rhiannon Sassman hit .500 with 10 extra-base hits during that stretch, Rachel Wright hit .442, and the pitching staff had a 1.49 team ERA with 73 strikeouts in 89 innings. The 16-game winning is the third-longest active streak in DII, behind Harding (21) and Colorado Mesa (17). PENSACOLA, Fla. – West Florida has won 16 consecutive games and will visit Jackson, Tennessee, this weekend for a series against Union, which has won seven of its last nine. The Argonauts are 26-8 after a midweek win over Montevallo on Thursday with an 11-7 mark in the Gulf South Conference, and Union comes in at 21-15 with a 6-12 GSC record.last_img read more

first_imgNigeria is up to fourth on the medals table after the country’s athletes embarked on a medals blitz amassing 16 medals (10 Gold, 2 Silver and 4 Bronze) to take Team Nigeria’s total to 49 medals at the close of competition on Tuesday, 27 August.Team Nigeria achieved a 1-3 finish in the men’s 100m as Raymond Ekevwo set a personal best of 9.96secs to become the first Nigerian to win the event since Africa’s fastest man Olusoji Fasuba achieved the feat in 2007 in Algiers.His teammate, National Champion Usheoritse Itsekiri was third in 10.03secs behind Arthur Cisse of the Ivory Coast who took silver with a time of 9.97secs.In the women’s final, Joy Udo-Gabriel finished fourth in 11.44secs to miss out on a place on the podium as defending champion Marie Josee Ta Lou took gold in 11.09secs.

Queen Obisesan finished in fifth-place having thrown 61.82m.Nigeria’s superiority in the Weightlifting event continued unhindered as Rafiatu Lawal was left shining like a million stars after winning three gold medals in the women’s 59kg (210kg), Clean-Jerk (117kg) and Snatch (93kg).Not to be outdone, Joy Eze also bagged three gold medals in the women’s 64kg (218kg), Clean-Jerk (121kg) and Snatch (97kg).There were to be no medals in the women’s High Jump as Esther Isah and Doreen Amata could clear a height of 1.78m, to finish in fourth and fifth places respectively.Nigeria can look to the prospect of more medals in athletics as women’s 100m African Hurdles Champion Tobi Amusan made it through to the final in 12.69secs. Compatriots Oluwakemi Francis and Grace Ayemoba missed out on a place in the final after they both finished in fourth place in their respective heats. In the men’s 400m semis.

Can UK football get to six wins in 2015?

first_imgThat leaves the Cats in search of three more wins in the nine remaining games: at home against Florida, Missouri, Auburn, Tennessee and Louisville; on the road against South Carolina, Mississippi State, Georgia and Vanderbilt. These three look like UK’s best shot at returning to the postseason for the first time since 2010:Florida (Sept. 19, Lexington) – The Cats were so close to snapping their brutal losing streak against the Gators last season in The Swamp. Instead, they suffered maybe the most miserable of all the 28 consecutive defeats as a blown call helped Florida escape in triple overtime. True freshman Stanley “Boom” Williams announced his arrival that night with a jaw-dropping, zig-zagging touchdown that would’ve gone down in UK lore if not for a missed delay-of-game penalty before the Gators got off a tying TD toss on fourth down in the first OT.Florida lost three of its next four games, though, and fired Will Muschamp. New coach Jim McElwain summed up the situation for the Gators, who went 11-13 overall and 7-9 in SEC play the last two years, by saying this in the spring: “The hand we were dealt is really insufficient at some of the areas.” Just four starters are back on offense, including only one up front, and they must replace the heart of a once-fearsome defensive line. Considering that, the motivation of last season’s loss and Florida coming into glittering new Commonwealth Stadium for a night game, this could finally be the year.Kentucky sports take over SEC Network on SaturdayVanderbilt (Nov. 14, Nashville) – Nothing illustrated how far Kentucky had fallen like a three-game losing streak against the Commodores by a combined score of 100-14. But that ended last fall in Lexington. After a 17-7 Cats victory, which also snapped a 17-game SEC losing streak, the two programs appear to be headed in opposite directions. All the momentum James Franklin built – consecutive nine-win seasons before bolting to Penn State last year – has evaporated under new coach Derek Mason.Vandy went 3-9 last fall and Mason, in a move that could be construed as panic, quickly fired both his coordinators. More troubling: the Commodores have seen their talent level dip as Kentucky’s continues to rise. Franklin’s final two recruiting classes ranked 19th and 29th nationally, but Mason’s first two ranked 48th and 49th. Stoops, meanwhile, is in the midst of landing a fourth consecutive top-35 haul. While the Wildcats have lost 22 consecutive road games and 27 straight outside the state, Vanderbilt Stadium is not exactly a house of pain these days.Over/under win totals set for Louisville, Kentucky, Indiana by BovadaLouisville (Nov. 28, Lexington) – Just like last year, Kentucky’s postseason hopes could come down to its regular-season finale against the rival Cardinals, only this time the big game is at home. The Cats, heavy underdogs and playing on the road in 2014, nearly pulled off a huge upset. They led 40-37 late (on another Boom Williams highlight-reel touchdown) and had a chance to all but seal victory with an interception in the final four minutes. But safety Marcus McWilson dropped it and U of L scored the winning TD five plays later.If the Cards came that close to defeat at home a year ago, UK has to like its chances in Commonwealth against a team that lost 10 NFL draft picks this spring. Five wide receivers – including superstar DeVante Parker – three starting offensive linemen and the entire secondary must be replaced. And there’s uncertainty at quarterback. On the flip side, Bobby Petrino is 5-0 against the Cats as the Cards’ coach and U of L will have a fearsome front seven on defense. Whichever way it goes, there should be no shortage of drama. (Remember last year’s pregame scuffle?) Desperation tends to bring out the fight in people, and it is especially urgent for Kentucky to clear the postseason hurdle in 2015. Kyle Tucker can be reached at (502) 582-4361. Follow him on Twitter @KyleTucker_CJ. Louisville favored over Kentucky by 2.5 point in Golden Nugget’s College Football Games of the Year Kentucky head coach Mark Stoops addresses the team before the Kentucky football scrimmage on Saturday, April 11, 2015.Kentucky head coach Mark Stoops addresses the team before the Kentucky football scrimmage on Saturday, April 11, 2015.LEXINGTON, Ky. – In a fairly impressive feat, Mark Stoops and the Kentucky football program managed to regain momentum this summer after a six-game losing streak to end last season.Bud Dupree became the program’s first NFL first-rounder in a dozen years. Commonwealth Stadium started to sparkle as $120 million in renovations near completion. Construction began on a new $45 million practice facility. Recruiting returned to better-than-ever levels.But come this fall, when Stoops begins his third season in charge, it will be time to back all that up with results. While he’s not on the hot seat and it might be a stretch to call this a make-or-break season, the bottom line is that 2015 will only be viewed as a success – and all that positive momentum will only be sustained – if UK reaches a bowl game.That requires six wins, which is exactly where Las Vegas oddsmakers just set the over/under for the Cats. So where will those victories come from? Pencil in home wins over Louisiana-Lafayette (Sept. 5), Eastern Kentucky (Oct. 3) and Charlotte (Nov. 21), because if Kentucky can’t win those then no progress has been made.Sign up to get more like this free in your inboxlast_img read more

Wolverhampton player ‘not ready for long flight’ after recent illness –…

first_imgOn Thursday, we relayed the news from Belgium that Leander Dendoncker would be missing Belgium’s game against San Marino due to gastroenteritis. One of the big questions beyond that piece of information was whether or not the Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder would be fit to face Kazakhstan next Tuesday, and the answer is sadly no.Speaking to the press, relayed by Sport.be, Roberto Martínez explained he ‘didn’t feel Dendoncker was ready for such a long flight with his stomach issues’.Clearly weakened by the illness, it seems the versatile player will now return home instead of travelling to Astana for his national team’s fixture and will presumably focus on recovering in order to be fit for Wolves’ next game.That will be on October 19th, giving him ample time to feel better, as Nuno Espírito Santo’s side welcome Southampton at the Molineux in what should be a good game for the Premier League side to continue their current run of form of three wins in their last three games.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is AddictiveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoMisterStocksThese Hilarious Photos Were Captured On The SubwayMisterStocksUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoCNN with DBS BankWhat Banks Did To Help Corporations Mitigate Future CrisesCNN with DBS BankUndoLoans | Search AdsNeed a loan?

Stamen Belchev: It is inadmissible for CSKA to play like this,…

first_imgCSKA head coach Stamen Belchev apologized to the club’s fans for the team’s performance in the match against the Maltese Sirens, won dramatically with 2: 1 after a goal in added time of the match. Belchev admitted that it is inadmissible for the “reds” to play in such a way, adding that there was an underestimation of the opponent.“In my opinion, the fact that it was very difficult to find the right path in the last 20 meters to the opponent’s door, we had reconnoitered them well. Maybe the underestimation that I think was in the team, although since Sunday I have been saying that the forces in Europe are leveling off. I want to apologize to the fans on behalf of the whole team, it is inadmissible for CSKA players to play this way. ”“The moment you start to adjust during the match, this tension arises. We controlled, but it didn’t work out until the 20th meter, where we had to have sharpness, and we made the match difficult ourselves. ”“There were times when the positions they held were not good, separate individual mistakes in both the penalty and the goal. I’m glad all three got involved well. I’m happy with the people who got involved, but my requirements are much greater for everyone. ”“It is important for every player to feel the support of the coach. Everyone has my support, some succeed, others do not. They are all good footballers, for some it was just not their day today.And is it possible to see Sou and Ahmedov together in attack? “Yes, there is a possibility, we thought about this option, let’s not hurry. When the time comes, we will do it.Regarding the next opponent in the Europa League, Belchev commented: “It is important to be hosts, but there will be no audience, we will lack support, I hope there will be some development by then. The most important thing is that we look much better, no matter which team we are against. We need to look much better.“These things need to change, the mistakes we made today. Our first job is to restore the boys and from tomorrow we will prepare the boys for the match with Slavia “, added Belchev.Here is what one of the heroes for CSKA Ahmed Ahmedov shared: “A very difficult match for our team. The guests closed very well, we had situations, but we could not realize at first. Fortunately for us, we finally managed to win.“We taught them well that they only play on the counterattack and we knew that there would be situations if we lost the ball in the middle. They scored a goal, but we got up and turned the game around.“We trained well, I can’t talk about underestimation.

‘We panicked and went away from our plans’

first_imgAfter all the build-up, the India-Pakistan game ended up being a one-sided affair, with India dominating proceedings in Dubai on Wednesday, 19 September. They first bundled Pakistan for 162 in 43.1 overs, and then chased that down in 29 overs, with Rohit Sharma, the captain, scoring a 39-ball 52. More than the result, it was the batting that disappointed Arthur. After opting to bat, Pakistan were reduced to 3/2, with Bhuvneshwar Kumar sending back the openers within five overs. That put quite a bit of pressure on the middle order early, and they couldn’t really fight back.“We sort of batted outside our roles, which was very disappointing,” said Arthur. “Imam-ul-Haq, it’s not his role to be running down to Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the third over. It’s not Sarfraz’s (Ahmed) role to be hitting over the top and getting caught out there. We’ve got X-factor guys whose role it is to do that.“If Fakhar (Zaman) gets out playing that way, it’s OK. If Asif (Ali) gets out like that, it’s OK, because that’s his role. But the other four batsmen certainly need to take responsibility. “(It was) the pressure that told on Imam. As I said, out of his role, he had two off eight balls or whatever, but Fakhar had just faced a maiden. He tried to have a go, he tried to hit the ball that’s not in his area. I do think there was a little bit of pressure.”Such is the strength of Pakistan’s bowling attack that there remained hope that they could yet defend that total. However, Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan (46 off 54) absorbed the pressure and ensured there were no early wickets.“On a wicket like that, you need to strike really early if you’re going to defend it,” said Arthur. “We didn’t strike early enough. But, saying that, we went away from our plans too quickly. We said that our batters batted outside our roles and that wasn’t acceptable. “With our bowling, we went outside our plans far too quickly. We wanted to bowl hard lengths, hit the top of off stump. It was tough to score then. There was a bit of panic when they didn’t strike early. We panicked and went away from our plans.”Arthur also believed the scare India suffered from Hong Kong, who came within 27 runs of winning their game on Tuesday, had done the No.2- ranked ODI side a world of good. “India played better than us today. They put us under pressure for longer periods of time,” he said.“They were probably quite good for the hit-out last night and they got a little bit of a scare. They certainly came out, and their discipline was so much better. We saw what a difference (Jasprit) Bumrah makes to the attack. I thought their spinners bowled well, and their lengths were much better than last night. I think they were better for their hit-out.” The two sides will meet again on Sunday in the Super Four phase of the tournament.last_img read more
