“Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.”

– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Welcome to the latest edition of the number one Defense Career Opportunities Newsletter, “DEFCON-1,” a networking newsletter featuring job opportunities and career advice for those who are part of the global defense, aerospace, maritime, marine technology and security industry. DECFON 1 brings you job opportunities every week, and counts on members like you to submit job listings to share and post in this newsletter.

Help the network grow. Sign up a friend. They can join for free simply by sending a blank email to DCO-subscribe@topica.com.

When you learn about a job opportunity in the defense sector, such as a position that comes open with your company, you send me the title, organization, location, and a brief description; link; or contact information, and I’ll share. This is a cooperative network. That means everyone’s participation is required to provide job opportunities to share.

Transitioning, or changing your e-mail address? Don't forget to change your DEFCON – 1 subscription. To unsubscribe, send a blank e-mail from the old account to DCO-unsubscribe@topica.com. Then a blank e-mail from your new account to DCO-subscribe@topica.com. I cannot do this for you.

I never give out, rent, or sell my list, and neither does Topica.

*** Landing a Concorde

Very interesting video, with full technical explanation by the Captain,

of how to slow a Concorde from Mach 2, begin descent (they turn OFF the

autothrottles because monitoring the engine instruments is critical

during throttle reduction, and do it manually), slowing and descending

and finally, the traffic pattern at JFK. Note how long they maintained 350 KIAS, from

beginning the descent at 57,000' until well after leveling off at

9,000'. Also note how they increased the rate of descent while at flight

idle.

Interesting to me was how LATE in the process they finally get around to

lowering the 'visor' as he calls it (the entire nose of the Concorde

drops to allow visibility thru the forward windscreen downward to see

the runway). They don't lower it until the same time they lower the

landing gear!
