Linear workflows with DWAA lossy compression
Hitting a few walls in return for files at a fraction of their lossless size.
Tapered roller bearings
In many applications tapered roller bearings are used in back-to-back pairs so that axial forces can be supported equally in either direction.
A windsock is used to maintain a visual indication of wind direction and strength and is typically located at the end of the runway.
North Atlantic High Level Airspace
Discover the six oceanic area control centres that make up the North Atlantic High Level Airspace.
