Government Gets Something Right
Super Light Titanium Timepiece Loses Only One Second Every 20 Million Years.
The U.S. government has engineered the most ingenious, most accurate clock in the world: the F-1 U.S. Atomic Clock in Boulder, Colorado. Our extraordinary new Stauer Titanium Atomic Watch utilizes the transmissions directly from that remarkable cesium fission atomic clock to report the most precise time.This scientifically advanced timepiece will gain or lose only one second over a 20 million-year period. It is that accurate! This perfectly tuned technological invention with the super light strength of titanium is now available for UNDER $130.
Super Light Titanium has two big advantages over steel.
One is corrosion resistance and the other is that titanium has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any metal, which means that titanium is approximately 45% lighter than steel. But every other titanium watch that we can find is priced at over $400, and none of those are nearly as accurate as our atomic movement. Stauer has decided to bring these resources together in a timepiece that has the most accurate movement available today.You'll never have to set this watch. Just push one of the buttons and you are synchronized with the atomic clock in Colorado, and the hands of the watch move to the exact time position.The sleek black textured dial has luminous hands and markers plus the timepiece is water resistant to 3 ATM.
A Titanium-clad offer.
This Titanium Atomic Watch exceeds the accuracy of any Swiss luxury automatic so you can be more punctual and keep most of your money in your wallet, not on your wrist. Look at your watch and we guarantee that the time is incorrect, unless you are wearing the advanced atomic technology. The Stauer Titanium Atomic Watch is not available in stores and it comes with our 30 day money-back guarantee. If you're not completely satisfied with the accuracy, simply return the watch for the full purchase price. Includes a 2-year warranty on the movement.
to see. A direct hit at one end knocked some of the pilings. One mortal accident occurred during a bombing mission when Lt. Prinzler crashed in the vicinity of Kamaing; he failed to come through a big cloud. His body was rapidly found in the wreck of his plane by a search team.
By the end of the month, an important fighter sweep of Kunlon, Aungban, and Heho airfields involved the pilots of the 90th FS. The purpose of this attack was to intercept a maximum number of Japanese planes returning to other fields. Sixteen P-47s of the 90th FS took part, with additional planes of the 88th and 89th squadrons. For this operation, they were transferred to Myitkyina.
The operation occurred on December 31. Eight planes of the 90th FS that hit Heho experienced the heaviest antiaircraft fire the squadron had ever met at low or high altitude, until they left the area. Lt. Hammer’s plane was hit, knocking out his airspeed indicator and left aileron, but he succeeded in coming back to the base. Four other planes, which attacked Kunlon for 45 minutes, saw no Japanese planes, so they strafed the two separate strips. Two of them were hit by machine- gun fire, damaging the landing-gear mechanism on one of them. This made it necessary for the pilot (Lt. Lyon) to crash-land. Fortunately, he was not injured, although his P-47 was totally destroyed. Despite several strafing passes, hits were scored on a number of Japanese planes, but there was no way of knowing if any enemy planes were damaged.
The biggest event in December 1944, without any competition, was the aerial combat during which two P-47s of the 90th FS faced a formation of Japanese fighters. As Japanese aircraft had almost vanished from the skies of Burma soon after the arrival of the 90th FS, the aerial-combat opportunities were poor for the pilots, except for the day of December 14 during a patrol south of Bhamo, along the Irrawaddy. Here is the story of that interception:
“Two P-47s, having taken off Tingkawk Sakan at 1200 hours, were patrolling south of Bhamo at 1435 hours at 10,000 ft. at SO-0595, heading
THE BIGGEST EVENT IN DECEMBER 1944, WITHOUT ANY COMPETITION, WAS THE AERIAL COMBAT DURING WHICH TWO P-47S OF THE 90TH FS FACED A FORMATION OF JAPANESE FIGHTERS.
