New Air Force One Budget

New Air Force One Budget

Two weeks after President Donald Trump threatened to kill the plan to replace aging Air Force One jets, Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg walked into Mar-a-Lago with some ideas for slashing its estimated $4.4 billion cost. In a Dec. 21 meeting with the president-elect, Muilenburg laid out four proposals. One of them would have cut about $1 billion, and Trump was soon boasting that he had saved that very amount.

But the Air Force — which oversees the jets’ acquisition and operation — rejected all of the proposals, saying that they would have produced a plane unsuited to the uniquely demanding requirements of flying the commander in chief in peace and war.

Since then, Air Force and White House officials have sought other ways to lower the cost of the aircraft, service spokeswoman Ann Stefanek said in an email. Added to some changes already in the works before Trump’s criticism, these are expected to save significant money.

Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg met with President Trump last week, as the men hammered out a new deal on a contract for two new Air Force One aircraft. While an agreement has yet to be finalized, the US Air Force (USAF) is seeking that Boeing agrees to a fixed-price contract that will see them absorb any cost overruns on the conversion of two 747 jumbo airliners that the service bought last summer. According to the USAF’s 2019 Fiscal Year funding proposal released last week, $4 billion has been requested for the project, an estimate that Trump had described last year as too expensive, even though only $170 million had been awarded to Boeing at the time for preliminary designs—later boasting that he had managed to knock $1 billion off  that $4 billion estimate. Time will tell how much savings were made, if any.

What is a National Stock Number?

What is a National Stock Number?

The National Stock Number or commonly referred to as an NSN in the USA is used to identify supply materials that are standardized and approved by the NATO countries.

national stock number search

Another name for an NSN is a NATO stock number; it is a 13 digit code in which countries use NSN under the NATO standardization agreement. All countries in the treaty use NATO stock numbers. The NSN catalog consists of over 7.5 million different active items. And over 20 million different part numbers under various manufactures.

Federal Supply Group (FSG) is identify  by the first two digits. The broad category in which the item belongs.

National Item Identification Number (NIIN) is the last 9 positions and identify the specific item.

The first two positions of the NIIN identify the NATO country code for the country making the number assignment.

The last seven digits of the NIIN are the item serial number.

The serial number does not follow an assignment pattern.  it is merely a number for the item. A National Item Identification Number (NIIN) is a nine-digit code that identifies each item of supply. A National Stock Number (NSN) is a 13-digit number consisting of the four-digit Federal Supply Class (FSC) and the nine-digit NIIN.

 

US Department of Defense - national stock number catalog

The United States Department of Defense is also a part of the groups that use the NSN to purchase various supplies and materials they consume often. Countries that use NSN’s but are not members of the treaty include countries such as Japan and New Zealand. The UK uses Domestic Management Code.

We did a simple google search for national stock number information, and came across this website. https://nationalstocknumber.info/ They have an entire catalog of nsn’s to part numbers.

Self-locking Nuts

Self-locking Nuts

Self-locking nuts used in aircrafts meet specifications of strength, corrosion
resistance and heat-resistance. It is advisable to always use a new self-locking nut
each time a component is replaced. Common locations for self-locking nuts are the
engine, fuel control linkages and attachments. There are two types of self-locking
nuts: all-metal nuts and nuts and nuts with non-metallic inserts. Examples of allmetal
nuts are Boots aircraft nut and Flexloc. While, the elastic stop and the nonmetallic
insert lock nut exemplify the non-metallic insert type.

Two primary ways all-metal self-locking nutplates are constructed are either with the
threads in the load-carrying portion of the nut that is out of phase with the threads in
the locking portion. The second construction approach is with a saw-cut top portion
with a pinched-in thread. The locking action of these types depends upon the
resiliency of the metal.

MS21075L3N - MIlitary Fasteners

The elastic stop nut  is constructed with a non-metallic (nylon)
insert, which is designed to lock the nut in place. The insert is unthreaded and has a
smaller diameter than the inside diameter of the nut. Self-locking nuts are generally
suitable for reuse in non-critical applications provided the threads have not been
damaged. If the locking material has not been damaged or permanently distorted, it
can be reused.

Non-self-locking nuts

Castle nut, plain hex nut, wing nut and castellated shear nut are the most common
non-self-locking aircraft nuts. Castle nuts are used with drilled-shank A hex-head bolts, clevis bolts or studs accepting cotter pin or lock wire for safe tying and in
aircraft parts experiencing shearing stresses. Castle nuts are inappropriate in aircraft
parts encountering tension stress. While plain hex nuts suffer a limited uses on
aircraft structure, wing nuts are useful where sufficient tightness is obtainable from
fingers grip, for example in battery connections

Sheet-spring nuts

The sheet-spring nut is made of sheet spring steel and it is cut so that is has two
flaps. The flaps ends are notched to form a hole that is somewhat smaller in
diameter than the screw used. Sheet-spring nuts are typically used when fastening
lightweight components. It other typical applications are for line clamps, electrical
equipment and small access doors. A sheet-spring nut has a definite arch that tends
to flatten out as the screw pulls the flaps in toward the threads. This flattening action
forces the flaps of the nut tightly into the threads of the screw. The springiness of the
sheet-spring nut pushes upward on the screw threads, binding them and locking the
screw in place. With the sheet-spring nut, either a standard or a sheet metal selftapping
screw is used.
