On May 19, EgyptAir Flight 804 dropped out of the sky. Only pieces of the plane have been found so far, and while more than 60 people are presumed dead, the exact cause of the plane’s downing is still unknown. Here’s everything we do know about its mysterious loss so far.
No, this isn’t about a dude getting pulled by a plane. This world record is much cooler. And the guy who set it has the best attitude imaginable.
The Antonov An-225 Mriya is bigger than any Airbus, bigger than any Boeing. Originally designed to transport a Soviet space shuttle, the lone example uses its six jet engines to fly freight around the world, holding the payload record of 559,577 pounds. This is what it looks like when it’s flying right over your head.
Most of us have had the experience where airline service isn’t quite what we expected. To do our duty, we run to the internet for an airing of grievances, giving a less than stellar review for sub-par service quality. But what happens when the airline is consistently ranked the worst in the world and only travels to…
As you probably notice each day in rush-hour traffic, most cars still travel on the ground. Despite innovations in both the automotive and aviation industries, the concept of a flying car remains a futuristically far-removed idea that hasn’t found its place yet. But in reality, flying cars came around in the early…
QUICK! You’re flying shotgun in a helicopter, and the engine goes out. Also, the pilot you hired for the day is dead, for some reason. Don’t worry about why. Doesn’t matter. You need to land the helicopter, now. Stop praying and watch this video.
Statistically, flying is the safest way to travel and you practically have nothing to worry about, but here’s what happens when that flies out the window. Buckle up.
It’s so rare that we see aerial onboards with any decent visibility at all, but this footage from aboard an L-13 Blaník glider will show you the full lay of the land. It’s so calming when you’re just enjoying the view from the plane. Enjoy.
When the Convair B-58 Hustler entered service with the USAF in 1960, it was the first jet bomber capable of Mach 2 speeds. However, nobody really knew what would happen if a pilot ejected at twice the speed of sound. Back in 1955, test pilot George Smith ejected from a North American F-100 Super Sabre at Mach 1.05.…
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.
Over a dozen “eclipse chasers” hopped onboard Alaska Airlines Flight 870 from Anchorage to Honolulu not to pick up spam musubi for dinner, but rather, to intersect the path of a solar eclipse. Astronomer Joe Rao captured the action from seat 32F, and I’ve never heard a man so excited about anything in my life.
Apparently there was still some confusion over whether or not you were allowed to use electronic cigarettes, or “vape,” on a commercial flight, so the U.S. Department Of Transportation is making it clear as a chemtrail-free sky; the answer is “no.”
Donald Trump, a tremendously classy and successful scrotum given the power of human speech by a high-energy successful warlock, is, of course, running for CEO of America. Last night he edged a little closer to that office. To get to all the places he needs to be a winner in, he needs to travel fast, through the skies.…
If you’ve happened to have a good day and want to end it on a high note, too fucking bad. It turns out people are horrible, proven by the gang of assholes on a Washington flight who clapped when a child was deboarded for having an allergic reaction which delayed their flight.
This year, righteous metal band Iron Maiden will be touring around the world in this Boeing 747 jumbo jet codenamed “Ed Force One,” piloted by lead singer Bruce Dickinson.
The band OK Go is probably best known for their complex, mind-twisting videos that make virologists wonder how they lost control of the word “viral.” Their latest video for the song Upside Down & Inside Out was shot entirely in an airplane flying in huge, zero-gravity simulating parabolas, and it’s astounding. The…
On an Air Mediterranee (where the trainees are manatees that will make you squee) flight from Algiers to Paris, a shirtless man caused a three-hour delayed landing and a fight when he crammed his junk between two airline seats and urinated. Don’t you hate when that happens?
Video has now emerged showing the terrifying situation on the interior of the Daallo Airlines flight that suffered an explosive decompression mid-air yesterday, with one person sucked from the aircraft and later found dead, and two others injured.
A Daallo Airlines flight traveling from Somalia to Djibouti in East Africa landed after an explosion tore a gaping hole in the Airbus A321 jet. Two were reportedly injured, though local eyewitness reports say that a “severely burnt body” was spotted falling from the sky.
