Awesome time-lapse shows the complete disassembly of a U-2 Dragon Lady spy plane

Here is exclusive footage showing how their technicians disassemble an entire U-2 spy plane for inspection. It’s a remarkable feat because every part of the plane gets inspected and repaired or replaced if necessary. That is, more than 40,000 rivets and 1,800 individual parts gets looked at and then gets reassembled…

Stunning video captures rocket separation in space like never before

Wow. This is truly spectacular. Here’s footage from UP Aerospace, which captured a multistage rocket separating in space like we’ve never seen before. You can see it release and then separate from each other in stunning fashion. We’ve slowed down the stage where the rocket separates and it’s just so cool. Seeing that…

The first spacecraft that feels from the future will blast off soon

SpaceX just got its first crewed spaceship contract from NASA for the Crew Dragon spacecraft and it’s set to bring us back to space on American spaceships after so many years without. Along with the Boeing Starliner, the Crew Dragon will start making crewed space flights in 2017. For reference, the last flight of the…

Video: An airplane fuselage gets transformed into a stunning interstellar light show

Wow. PlayMID’s Porta Estel·lar is a trully stunning visual light show inside an old airplane fuselage. It mimics the concept of interstellar travel, “from departure and takeoff to the sighting of comets, planets, galaxies and alien worlds, until finally returning safe to earth.” Watch it, it’s a total trip (in every…

The world's first supersonic private jet just got a lot closer to reality

Meet the Aerion AS2. It’s the first supersonic private jet in the world and it just got a 20-unit order from Flexjet, a private air company. It’s going to change the way some people (rich people!) fly because it can hit speeds of Mach 1.5 thus shaving down the hours needed to travel across the world. For example,…

The flight of a U-2 Dragon Lady spy plane from beginning to end 

Getting inside the cockpit and seeing the flight of a U-2 spy plane is so damn cool. Not only because it’s such a gorgeous looking plane—it’s basically a glider with an engine attached that can take it to the stratosphere—but because it’s also such a delicate one too. We get to see it take off and do the tenuous dance…

This delightful video of traveling to Japan is just so much fun to watch

Francisco Fuentes’ amazing visual diary of his trip to Japan is so awesomely captured and so well edited and so fun to watch that it makes me want to take a trip there immediately. It’s because every video in the series (there are 12 15-second videos) basically acts as a teaser for his time in that wonderful country.

Cool time-lapse of a US aircraft carrier crossing the new Suez Canal for the first time

Watch the USS Theodore Roosevelt navigate through the new Suez Canal with all of its fighter jets on deck. It’s super cool because the aircraft carrier is so big and the water of the canal is so calm that it feels like the Earth is moving around the land formation that is the USS Theodore Roosevelt.

Watch planes cut straight through Paris by flying on top of a street

Watch as airplanes cut straight through Paris as they fly right on top of Champ-Elysses and hit all the landmarks of Paris, from La Defense to the Arc de Triomphe to the Louvre and everything in between. The footage gets a little jittery at times and almost looks fake, but it’s so cool to rip through an entire city…
