It was a hell of a year for Vietnam-era jet aircraft at the EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Not only did the USAF’s QF-4 perform at sunset, but one of the amazing demonstrations included an A-4, MiG-17 and the world’s only flyable F-100 Super Sabre ripping the skies apart in front of thousands of awestruck…
Watch Skip Stewart of Skip Stewart Airshows do an extreme knife edge pass within an arms length from a Lamborghini Gallardo in his trademark highly modified 1979 Pitts S-2S Prometheus muscle biplane.
The MiG-17F made it's mark over the skies of Vietnam doing battle against U.S. aircraft like the F-4 Phantom II. Now, its great heritage and extraordinary maneuverability has made it a favorite airshow performer. Here's the uncanny amount of work involved to keep a 40 year old soviet fighter flying all summer.
You don't know about Bob Hoover? Shame on you! No other aviator in the history of powered flight has done more or inspired so many. With the help of Harrison Ford, Bob tells his own story and shares, with his trademark charm, the hard earned wisdom of a life spent pushing the edge of the envelope.
With the aim of promoting adventure tourism and extreme sports, the Mexican government hosted "State Of Mexico To The Max" this summer, bringing together professional athletes from around the world.

As a team effort, the Blue Angels can't be beat in terms formation precision. Maybe I gravitate to things that are new and shiny like a fish chasing a flashy lure I've been hooked. The F/A-18s are sure looking long in the tooth compared to the dynamic flight demo displayed by the F-22 Raptor.
When I was making plans to attend the annual EAA AirVenture air show in Oshkosh, Wisconsin last month, I specifically planned my trip around the chance to see the famous night air show. Acrobatic pilots perform routines while shooting fireworks and sparks from their wings — and it's amazing!
Eddie Andreini, 77, died on Sunday afternoon as the result of a crash of his Stearman biplane during a performance at the "Thunder Over Solano" air show at Travis Air Force Base in California. But was a poor response ultimately to blame for his death?
The US Navy Flight Demonstration Team, aka the Blue Angels, has returned triumphantly to America's air show scene. Here are some shots I took of their return show.
Putting those cheap RC toys you can find at a department store—and even the model kits from a hobby shop—to shame, these incredibly detailed scale model fighter jets look almost as intense to fly as the real thing. In fact, racing through the skies they're almost impossible to distinguish from the real thing too.
Capt. Brian Bews, the pilot who survived ejection mere feet from the ground at an air show last month in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada, has finally caught the attention of NBC's Today Show. Here's Capt. Bews' story.
