visual demonstration of spiraling slipstream
 
53VG was invaded briefly this afternoon. The air was heavy with moisture which provided a very clear visual representation of the left turning tenancy known as spiral slipstream ...

The photographer says "nice catch!"

The artist says "very pretty!"

The physicist says "an excellent visual example of the phenomenon!"

The engineer says "look at the inefficient transfer of energy from the tips!"


The farmer says "corn's lookin' good....." :)

You should see it from behind. Spectacular! I didn't have enougn time for the camera...

This phenom only happens when a skilled pilot feathers in precisely the right amount of power while monitoring the correct blade angle via the RPMs.

It has nothing to do with that. Wet photographer and good observing eye at the back made it happen. :D

Marshall, I'm sure you have enough corn fields in Georgia but your welcome to visit 53VG for a change of pace - there have been a few RV's here is year and all are welcome!

No corn fields here!



Taken by my son at Sportsman Airpark, Oregon.
