The qualities of wood in aircraft
« on: January 29, 2016, 07:10:14 PM »
I saw this long ago and thought I would pass it along.  Have no idea who the author was:

" The next time someone sneers at a wooden airplane, remind them that it is made of a UNIDIRECTIONAL REINFORCED LAMINATED COMPOSITE material consisting of MICRO-TUBULAR fibers embedded in a LONG CHAIN POLYMER MATRIX and having a near infinite fatigue life!"

If they have a puzzled look after that, don't say anything more, just smile an all knowing smile. ::)
