This junior varsity photoshop of a “Trump fighter jet” shooting down a “Fox News passenger plane” picked up speed in today’s social media churn. Supporters sharing this seem to be ready for an America that uses Russian war machines to kill newspeople Something something free trade, I guess?
The Federal Aviation Administration has awarded the HondaJet with the “Type Certification” the company’s been chasing since they fired up an aircraft division in 2006. The plane is finally legal for American skies and sales to the public.
Howard Cox spent 30 years building a BD5 similar to James Bond’s BD-5J from Octopussy, only to meet his end flying the very same plane to an Irish air show on Saturday. He was 67.
Spending the day at Ikea is a fun treat in the best of times, a relationship-destroying nightmare in the worst. For one Airbus designer, though, following the yellow arrows around the bins of votive candles and wall hooks was a breakthrough moment.
How do you move three tons of Peterbuilt tractor-trailer more than 1300 feet in less time than it takes to read this sentence? By strapping on a trio of jet engines, obviously.
No music. No flashy moves. No missile launches. And yet this video is still incredible. It's just flying sequence after flying sequence of Russian Air Force MiG-31s cruising through the sky. Filmed by GoPro cameras strapped to a MiG, this footage is probably the closest we'll ever get to flying a fighter jet. Seeing…
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.
If the music‘s anything to go by, pretty much everyone was on something in the ’60s — and that includes the engineers. BAE Systems has recently dug up some totally batshit-crazy ideas that were seriously being kicked around by its ‘crack’ team of engineers, and they’re both totally ridiculous and dangerously awesome.
A plane has crashed into a hangar at Chino Airport in San Bernardino County, California.
How do you hide an airplane behind a bird? Very skillfully. Lt. Col. William B. O'Connor (ret.) flew the F-117 Nighthawk during the Bosnia Conflict, and in Stealth Fighter, he explains the history, operation, and soul America's most advanced stealth jet.
The most expensive weapons program in U.S. history is about to get a lot pricier.
It's like the Sons of Anarchy and Evel Knievel conceived a kinky lovechild while jumping over the Grand Canyon aboard rocket sleds.
The USAF's fighter from the future made its first air show flight over the weekend, wowing audiences at Andrews' Air Force Base. Get a good look! You paid for 'em—the F-35 is the most expensive military program ever.
...and there's no one around to hear it, does it

warp space-time? Inquiring minds want to know. Here's the answer, from a man who watched it happen.
This F-16 Fighting Falcon kicks up a giant plume of steam and snow as the pilot lifts the nose and the afterburners do their job. Awesome. (Photo Credit: U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Samuel Morse.)
The Pit and the Pendulum? Please. This man's got a much more serious concern: a Harrier jet, inches from his nose, suspended from the ceiling by just two cables. That's quite a predicament.
A French-British organization is working to determine if Air France's Concorde could return to limited "heritage" flight. The powerful Rolls-Royce engines last pushed the planes to supersonic speeds in 2003, but such magnificent beasts shouldn't lay silent. Photo: James Gordon
