This Is How They Trim Trees In Africa

This Kenyan Air Force Northrop F-5 Tiger II does an extremely low, high speed pass effectively removing any excess branches from the trees and putting on a good show in the process. It has yet to be confirmed if permission was granted to buzz the tower. » 1/19/15 4:10pm 1/19/15 4:10pm

Watch This 36,000 Horsepower Truck Blow The Doors Off A Flying Jet

The Shockwave Jet Truck is a delightfully ridiculous contraption with six wheels, three jet engines, and a strong resemblance to a semi-truck cab. Those three engines generate an equivalent of 36,000 horsepower; enough to catch up to and pass a speeding jet flying overhead. » 10/10/14 4:34pm 10/10/14 4:34pm

These guys turned a jet into a car—or a car into a jet, who knows

I don't know what this is. I don't know where it comes from, I don't know what's doing on the road, I don't know its propulsion method, and I don't know who is Maverick and Goose here. But I know that, even while it looks ridiculous, I want a ride. » 4/28/14 11:02am 4/28/14 11:02am

Mil Porn: Canyon, Or Should I Say Crevice Flying In A Hellenic AF F-4

Houston's secret suburban fighter jet

"You know there's a Phantom like a block away, right?" my friend Kevin exclaimed as I drained my last sip of beer. "Oh, a Rolls?" I asked, uninterested in the prospect of seeing another luxo-cruiser. "No, an F-4 Phantom fighter jet." This I had to see. » 7/22/11 12:00pm 7/22/11 12:00pm

Continental passenger tried to open jet door to kill himself

A 34-year-old man attempted to commit suicide by opening the door of a Continental passenger jet traveling from Houston to Chicago. Having been on that same flight numerous times we can't relate. The Southwest flight is much worse. Midway, ugh. » 5/17/11 5:30pm 5/17/11 5:30pm

Why Yes, That Is A Turbine-Powered Ford T-Bucket

Let's review what's going on here: This is a Model T. It's powered by a Boeing T50/Model 502 gas turbine, the same thing the government once put in helicopters and anti-submarine drones. Now you can buy it on eBay. Gah! » 3/05/10 9:00am 3/05/10 9:00am

Tesla CEO Used Private Jet To Fly To D.C. And Beg For Money

Tesla CEO Elon Musk took a fancy private jet to Washington, D.C. and then begged for money. Hmm... seems to us like someone already got yelled at for doing this. Jeez, he's already acting like a soon-to-be-bankrupt automaker. » 2/10/10 5:30pm 2/10/10 5:30pm

Popular Science Builds Insane Jet Turbine-Powered ATV

60 MPH, 114 dB, 1300 degrees, 150,000 RPM. We probably wouldn't be crazy enough to put a jet turbine in a side-by-side, but we know we definitely wouldn't take it for a test run through Philly. [PopularScience] » 6/30/09 5:30pm 6/30/09 5:30pm

Desert Runs In A Turbine-Powered Datsun 280Z

While the turbine-powered Porsche 928 we found on eBay was admittedly pretty neat (and ended up selling for a measly $7,150), the accompanying video didn't really prove the car's kerosene-guzzling potential to us.

Jet. Powered. Se7en. The Dax Rush is a pretty well respected kit se7en to begin with, but somebody has gone and built an homage to mad-scientist manliness with a Bell Jet Ranger powered Dax Rush.
