I have worked on my slides for my final product. My slides are animated, and they look really cool. The slides took me FOREVER. One other thing that took a lot of time was my script. I kept having to change it, because the part where I say the plane dropped and took 1 minute, I had to get my facts straight. The proper fact was 3 minutes and 30 seconds. I also added some posters to my script, like in my final video. One poster was for Air France flight 447. What I did was I drew a picture of the plane falling. So the top part of the board was when the plane stared to fall. Another plane was below that one, representing the drop in the next minute. And then the bottom was the plane in the water with people flying through the air, the plane broken up. I also made 2 posters to represent the start of the crash I was going to describe. Overall, this project was really fun.
Yesterday we presented our capstone projects. I was so scared because it was a room full of parents. But anyway, I did it. Even though I was scared, i did it. Here is my final product. I worked SOO hard on these slides and my script. This project was really fun. It took me a long time to complete this awesome presentation.
I’d like to thank Mr. Casal, Ms. Boyer, and Bruce for helping me make my final product possible.
So, now I am going to answer my main inquiry question, that conducted my research. So my answer starts here.
Aviation has improved because of some of the worst aviation disasters. One was TWA flight 800. On July 17, 1996, TWA flight 800 was going to Rome with a stopover at Paris, carrying 230 passengers. About 12 minutes after takeoff, at 8:31 eastern time, the plane blew up, and shot down to the Atlantic ocean in many pieces. All of the people and crew on board, 230, died. But what was learned was that this should never happen again. Boeing, the plane-maker, developed stronger tanks and better fuel.
Another disaster was United airlines flight 232. On July 1, 1989, UA 232’s engine fan disk imploded, shutting off all of the hydraulic lines. Then, the crew tried to land at Sioux City airport, but the plane failed to touch down properly and it blew up.
I have 3 replies for capstone. One was an unprofessional pilot who loves flying. Another was a professor for an Aeronautics College. Then they answered the questions. Then I recieved word that the professor fowarded the questions to a friend of his, another pilot. I got a lot of info out of my THREE interviews. Some questions I got more than others. But all the information was very useful. I got a good chunk out about radio contact to answer one of m sub questions.
