Update of the RCM Plans Thread Index -- 07 JANUARY 2018


Update of the RCM Plans Thread Index -- 07 JANUARY 2018

NOTES:
1. Zip contains the spreadsheet, with version rolled to 18
2. Some additional plan information found and added to the database, current count is 1219.
3. Continued focus on improving plan image quality. I regraded some images downward.

I began a project in my Blog that will become a e-book history of the magazine.

Statistics:

==================================================

Section 1: Combined Count of Unique Plans, giving precedence to Outerzone & RCM Plans Free threads


Spreadsheet instructions: Check Filters are cleared. Filter column D by the appropriate color. Look to the status row at the Bottom-Left for the numbers. Clear filters after checking each color. "Total Scaled" and the various percentages are manual calculations.

Scaled Plans:
ORANGE (OZ): 922/1219 = 75.6%
Dark GREEN (RCM Plans Thread): 250/1219 = 20.5%
Sand BROWN (Elijah's blog): 17/1219 = 1.4%
Total scaled: 1189/1219 = 97.5%
Uncaptured
WHITE: 30/1219 = 2.5%
==================================================

Section 2: Separate count of plans in the "RCM Plans Free" and hlsat threads.

Spreadsheet Instructions: Check Filters are cleared. Get the RCM Thread number by filtering column E for Green. Clear filters. Get the Elijah thread number by filtering column G for sand-brown. Clear filters.
RCM Plans Thread
Scaled: 1007/1219 = 82.6%

Elijah's blog (posts scaled plans only)
Scaled: 1129/1219 = 92.6%
==================================================

Section 3. Other Sources

Spreadsheet Instructions: Check Filters are cleared. Filter column H for Blue to get the number. Clear filters.
Note: a few cells are uncolored but contain a value (filter blue AND content greater than zero). These have a plan but no article.

J. Hatton Blog (posts articles with unscaled plans)
Available articles: 1113/1219 = 91.3%

==================================================

Section 4. Article Audit (All 4 Sources)

Spreadsheet Instructions: Clear filters. Filter column J for light Green to get the number. Clear filters.
Articles Captured: 1190/1219 = 97.6%
==================================================

Section 5. Plan Grades

Spreadsheet Instructions: Clear filters. Filter column K for Desired Grade the number. Clear filters.

AA - 770/1219 = 63.2%
BB - 280/1219 = 23.0%
CC - 96/1219 = 7.9%
DD - 13/1219 = 1.1%
XX - 30/1219 = 2.5% (not flight plans)
(blank) - 30/1219 = 2.5% (missing plans)

==================================================

Hey David,

So the construction article I've been searching for was actually a Sig ad that month in the August 1982 issue of RCM showing Col. Art Johnson's twin Kougar . Do you have that issue by chance?
