:) this is funny.

when a south african newspaper write that south africa made the first... or hosted the first.... or have the fastest.... and we try to show them that's not the case, they deffend the indefendable.

and when a newspaper from other african country make a mistake they attack the poor sicentist and the ingeeneer that are working in this project.... and they call the whole country and people of that country stupid.

no comment guys you are becoming so so arogant that we can't even debat with you.

But in this case it's not a newspaper. They declared themselves to be the first. And they shouldn't have named their group "African Space Research".

Who exactly called Ugandans stupid? Because I certainly didnt. You can read through the posts again. All I said is that these people are seriously fooling themselves, IF this is not a joke.....which I suspect it is

Usually that is the case then.

We also can't debate with you because of your struggling with the English language.

Great !! This is a big achievement for an African Guy (not for Africa) (In the same continent we export african airbus to european airlines !!)
However, i thing that Africa needs more analysts in big investment banks (GoldmanSachs, JP Morgan ...) than engineers whose achievements are strictly personal

I could be wrong, but I think they mean the military can assemble planes, not necessarily design them. In that case I think several countries on the continent do it already. I know the Ethiopian military does so for instance.

If they mean A-Z starting from design, I'm very impressed.

these guys are self taught, think they deserv much more credit than they are getting, they are building a space station in the bushes
p.s
how am i not surprised that arrogant south africans are in here
Er SA's merely pointed out this isnt the first for Africa, and possibly a JOKE about it being first in Uganda. :eek:hno:

Nope...has nothing to do with Uganda. The only joke is stating that a plane like that can fly at 930km/h and at 80 000 ft, which is clearly false.
Whether it was Germans, Americans or the British.....I would still laugh at them if they made such claims

80 00ft maybe :lol:

But 930Km/H with those fixed wings I see on the picture :nuts: and what about the engine ??

I wonder how that guy will develop an engine that will give that plane enough thrust to reach 930Km/H and also perform at different altitudes with such a huge difference in atmospheric pressure found at 80 00ft. :) maybe he will buy the engine or get one off a retired plane :lol:


No hate :cheers2: But what I see here is nothing but a garage made recreational aircraft. Plenty people do make such air crafts in their garages and register them, some really talented guys actually convert car engines into aircraft engines rather then buy a built aircraft engine :cheers:


This guy also claiming he has served so long in the navy; one would think he would be aware of the money, resources and labour that goes into developing a space program.

I see no:

smelters (to extract and create strong metal alloys that are light, strong and heat resistance for such daring mission)
engine assembly or development (how will the plane fly)
Machinery required to assemble with precision (this is the 21st century you cannot expect a machine assembled by hands to perform such daring tasks which this beast is going to be performing)

It is good to see such innovative and inventive African minds But the sci-fi description the guy gave his work made him look not so credible or serious

Except in the very large majority of cases you, in return, think that you know better and end up getting proven wrong.

First, it was the highways. South Africa's dual-carriageways apparently weren't highways, despite the fact that a highway has the same definition the world over. But as soon as a couple of Algerian members started saying Moroccan highways aren't highways because they don't live up to "Algerian standards," the tune was suddenly changed.

Then it was the South African air show. I emailed the organisers and over 80 000 people visited. That's about double the size of the Moroccan air show. And lastly, the film studios. After much explaining it seems some forumers still aren't able to grasp the concept of a difference between a Hollywood-style studio and a couple of film sets :lol:

But it's all good fun. Personally I gain much entertainment out of watching people fool themselves. What's amusing is that you seem to actually believe that a country with an economy a third of the size of South Africa's - that's less than the province of Gauteng - will actually have a third of the amount of highways Morocco does. Funnier yet, is that you believe that a country that develops and sells high-profile weapons to foreign countries supposedly has a smaller air show than Morocco - the air show where those same weapons are first launched.

Ok, let me use pictures to make my point. Again, this has nothing to do with Ugandans, just this particular group.....

Height

Blackbird SR 71 - Altitude 85 000 feet



Commercial Jets (Boeing, Airbus, etc) - Average altitude 32 000 feet



Ugandan Skyhawk - Claimed altitude of 80 000 feet. I rest my case.

Speed

Pilatus MKII Trainer - 556 km/h



BAE Hawk Fighter Trainer - 1035 km/h



African Skyhawk - Claimed speed on 930 km/h. I rest my case....again



Ok I'm done....:cheers:
