The construction of the orbiters began in 1980, and by 1984 the first full-scale Buran was rolled out. The first suborbital test flight of a scale-model took place as early as July 1983. As the project progressed, five additional scale-model flights were performed. The OK-GLI (Buran Analog BST-02) test vehicle (“Buran aerodynamic analogue”) was constructed in 1984. It was fitted with four AL-31 jet engines mounted at the rear (the fuel tank for the engines occupied a quarter of the cargo bay). This Buran could take off under its own power for flight tests, in contrast to the American Enterprise test vehicle, which was entirely unpowered and relied on an air launch. The jets were used to take off from a normal landing strip, and once it reached a designated point, the engines were cut and OK-GLI glided back to land. This provided invaluable information about the handling characteristics of the Buran design, and significantly differed from the carrier plane/air drop method used by the US and the Enterprise test craft. Test flights Nine taxi tests and twenty-five test flights of OK-GLI were performed, after which the vehicle was “worn out”. All tests and flights were carried out at Baikonur.

(September 2009) (Learn how and when to remove this template message) The prison in Sighetu Marmaţiei (often referred to just as “Sighet”) was built in 1897, when the area was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, as a prison for criminal offenders. After 1945, at the end of World War II, the repatriation of Romanians who had been prisoners of war and deportees in the Soviet Union was done through Sighet. In August 1948, once communist power had been consolidated in Romania, Sighet prison was reserved for political opponents of the regime. At first, it held a group of students, pupils and peasants from the Maramureş region. Many of the surviving prisoners are still living in Sighet to this. thanks wikipedia.

Major-General Christoph August von Wangenheim (23 March 1741 in Hanover – 23 June 1830 in Hanover) was a German Hanoverian army officer and court official.[a] Biography Von Wangenheim entered the Hannoverian Army in 1757. Over the next twenty years he was gradual promoted and became a major in 1777. Between 1782–1787 von Wangenheim served in India with the East India Company but retained his commission in the Royal Hanoverian army. He commanded Hanoverian brigade at the battle of Cuddalore (13 June 1783).[b] Also during that time he led a contingent 1,400 Hanoverians, along with a company of European and sepoy soldiers to suppress a mutiny of a British Army regiment. In 1797 he was promoted to Major-General. In India in 1783 von Wangenheim treated a wounded French sergeant who was his prisoner with kindness. Two decades later (in 1803), when France conquered Hanover, Bernadotte, the French commanding general reintroduced himself to von Wangenheim and thanked him for his kindness 20 years earlier (such are the fortunes of war). Between 1814 and 1819 von Wangenheim was a member of the Hanoverian Parliament. In 1819 he accepted the office of Hofmarschall (an administrative post in charge of a princely German court). Notes ^ Also spelt Christian August von Wangenheim. ^ There is some confusion in the sources Mlynek says he commanded the 16th regiment, but Philippart says the brigade consisted of the 14th and 15th regiments. ^ a b c d e f g Mlynek 2002, p. 376. ^ a b c Philippart 1820, p. 387. ^ a b Arielli & Collins 2012, p. 41–42. ^ Wilks 1817, pp. 441–443.

It is situated on the eastern edge of the city of Brighton and Hove, with part (known as East Saltdean) outside the city boundary in Lewes district. Saltdean is approximately 5 miles east of central Brighton, 5 miles west of Newhaven, and 6 miles south of Lewes. It is bordered by farmland and the South Downs National Park.Contents 1 History 2 Geography 3 Education 4 Sport and leisure 5 Cultural references 6 Notable people 7 References 8 External linksHistory Saltdean was open farmland, originally a part of the village of Rottingdean, and almost uninhabited until 1924 when land was sold off for speculative housing and property development. Some of this was promoted by entrepreneur Charles W. Neville, who had set up a company to develop the site (he also eventually built nearby towns Peacehaven and parts of Rottingdean). Saltdean has a mainly shingle beach, fronted by a promenade, the Undercliff Walk, which can be reached directly from the cliff top, by steps from the coast road, or by a subway tunnel from the nearby Lido. The buildings nearest the beach are the most architecturally varied, and include some influenced by international trends of the inter-war years, e.g. Bauhaus and Cubism, and there are some which are Spanish influenced. The most famous building is the Saltdean Lido community centre, which includes a public library and iconic open air swimming-pool, designed by architect R.W.H. Jones. He also designed other buildings in the area, including the former Grand Ocean Hotel, built using Art Deco ‘ocean liner’ architecture. Saltdean is now a prosperous. thanks wikipedia.

Birth: Boston, Massachusetts G.O. No.: 10, February 16, 1951 Citation:Sfc. Turner distinguished himself by conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity above and beyond the call of duty in action against the enemy. A large enemy force launched a mortar and automatic weapon supported assault against his platoon. Sfc. Turner, a section leader, quickly organized his unit for defense and then observed that the attack was directed at the tank section 100 yards away. Leaving his secured section he dashed through a hail of fire to the threatened position and, mounting a tank, manned the exposed turret machine gun. Disregarding the intense enemy fire he calmly held this position delivering deadly accurate fire and pointing out targets for the tank’s 75mm. gun. His action resulted in the destruction of 7 enemy machine gun nests. Although severely wounded he remained at the gun shouting encouragement to his comrades. During the action the tank received over 50 direct hits; the periscopes and antenna were shot away and 3 rounds hit the machine gun mount. Despite this fire he remained at his post u. thanks wikipedia.
