Jelly/Spice from user cristinestwin:
NO! please don't call shelter, they will kill him or another cat to make space.
Call contact me, I will take him or her and hold on to till owner is found. if no owner, I will get him spayed or neuter vet care and provide a home or find a good loving home. It was describe this poor cat is bashful and friendly just surviving, I have no problem feeding and getting it off the streets, and keeping him/her safe. PM her for details.

The Marine's from 29-palms have been using our area as training grounds for decades. Our terrain is similar to that of Afghanistan's, so they fly around the area regularly. SCM Robot was being sarcastic, it's pretty awesome to see if you ask me!

SCM, more likely someone who grew up in/coming up to BBL area using known landmarks for low-level flight training. Yes, this is the voice of experience talking. "Looking for fires" might be good justification on the flight paperwork...

At maybe 10's of thousands of dollars per day (?) use, I hope they are just training.

10:1 was the max. Industrial/land & some air products, were lower, 4:1 to 6:1 respectively, if I remember correctly. Highest burst qual I ran was well into 30K PSIA(G).

Active Osprey, 3rd pass.

That Osprey came from the North this time, slow near horizontal blades. Heading back, came closer & props at vert, hauling butt.

mountainart, in aerospace our burst manifold ratings were 10:1 from operating pressure. QA and Engineering would always come down to see. Not cuz they were needed, but it was fun!

Aceribo designed at beginning of CAD engineering calcs use, overreliance on cutting safety margins too thin, and not calculating poor maintenance of cabling under repeated bending through azimuth actuators. Equals cabling strength not up to expected service parameters. Couple in oxidation/rust crystallizing cabling strand interior due to poor upkeep of moisture proofing on cables led to failure.

Just my assessment based on the evidence I have been reading up on. Old school steel cabling safety margins, like used on our turn of the century legacy suspension bridges should have been used.

Again, just by opinion, and how I safety margin structures I build(see cabin build thread for example in general discussions to see my ridiculous over engineering)

I believe the shelter takes stray cats. Call them 909-866-4943.

If you place it with someone else, you need to first keep it for 2 weeks and place a Found ad in the Grizzly newspaper.

Hehe, yeah old tech.
Space junk: wiki - "Although most debris burns up in the atmosphere, larger debris objects can reach the ground intact. According to NASA, an average of one cataloged piece of debris has fallen back to Earth each day for the past 50 years."
I did not know every day, wow.
