Last night, a JetBlue flight destined for Sacramento, California encountered turbulence so bad it sent 24 people to the hospital.
Here’s an E-2C Hawkeye trying to land on the USS Eisenhower. Everything seems normal until the arresting cable on the carrier—which is supposed to snare an aircraft as it lands—suddenly snaps. The airplane almost looks like a runaway car until it drops and disappears out of view, off the carrier.
Which one of these crazy people would you rather be? The person making a low pass on a stunt plane knowing if you fly any higher you’re definitely going to end up in prison? The dude doing a backflip on a motorcycle while jumping over that stunt plane? Or the totally exposed lunatic walking on a tight rope as the…
Two people in a Jeep crashed into an F/A-18E fighter jet on Thursday after they infiltrated a Navy base in an attempt to escape law enforcement. Both were killed, the Navy Times reports.
The “Red Bull Air Force” is a real thing. Specifically; a team of lunatic aerial stunt athletes with an unlimited budget. Want to watch them try and outdo each other?
With all the fanfare possibly affordable to such a development, Boeing is proud to announce its pint-size combat truck called the Phantom Badger does indeed fit inside a V-22 Osprey tiltrotor aircraft.
While we all hate delays on planes, sometimes we have to accept that the runway isn't suitable for takeoff.
We are always warned not to shine a laser at a plane as it's flying overhead. In case you didn't know why, it's because it's dangerous.
If you thought that the monster Airbus A380 wasn't crazy enough, you have to check out their latest design, which just got awarded a patent by the US Patent and Trademark Office.
Boeing's Sonic Cruiser began its life almost a decade ago. At the end, its superawesome supersonic design was replaced by the 787 Dreamliner's superboring superquiet and superefficient blueprint, which started construction in 2007. Many thought the project was cancelled, but apparently a secret team of Boeing…
If you were impressed by the elephant walk of twenty-seven F-16 Fighting Falcons taxying down the runway, fully armed and ready for immediate take off and battle, check out these seventy (70!) F-15E Strike Eagles doing exactly the same.
You know, the F-35 may have had a lot of problems and it may be overpriced and late and whatever. I don't care. It still looks amazing. This photo of two F-35s flying in formation is so awesome that it is now my new desktop picture.
The FAA lost contact with a Cessna 421 shortly before 9AM this morning. The pilot, it turns out, was unconscious, and the plane ultimately slammed into the Gulf of Mexico 135 miles off the coast of Florida. The pilot has been identified as Dr. Peter Hertzak.
I'm no engineer, but I know this: If personal electronics could bring down a plane, Al Quaeda would just assign a pack of assholes to send simultaneous text messages from the next flight out of Jerusalem.
Two United States' Air Force F-15 Eagle fighters launched into Canadian airspace to intercept a Korean Air Boeing 777 on April 10, 5:30 Pacific Time. The plane was going to Seoul when it received a bomb threat shortly after takeoff from Vancouver, British Columbia.
Fuel continue to be the largest operating expenditure for airlines and is expected to cost them an extra $40 billion this year. So, MIT's developing a new style of aircraft that could run on as little as 30 percent as today's 737's.
The US Navy has published photos of the aftermath of the F/A-18D crash. They clearly show the damage on the apartments that got hit, along with the foam-covered grounds. It's amazing how lucky the residents and the pilots were.
Everybody hates having to stop reading ebooks, listening to music and playing Angry Birds during take-off. But it's not a fact of life; the FAA is rethinking its policy on using electronic devices during takeoff and landing. About. Bloody. Time.
Remember that insane low pass flyby for that B-52 Stratofortress next to the carrier USS Ranger. Gizmodo Reader and retired US Air Force master sergeant has sent us the look from the ship. It's pretty bloody stunning:
I thought this was the craziest low pass flyby ever, but obviously I was mistaken. After all, what you're seeing here is not a small fighter jet but a B-52 Stratofortress almost kissing the sea while flying by USS Ranger aircraft carrier.
