If you need to travel long distances with a pet, the only real option you have is to fly it with you. Unfortunately, sometimes this might not be the safest option for your animal.
I would certainly be freaking out if my little two-seat plane suffered a complete engine failure over Taiwan, but this pilot remained perfectly and absolutely calm as he safely got the thing on the ground. Then he took the time to cuss out everyone in existence.
A three-foot continental giant rabbit named Simon allegedly died in the cargo hold while traveling on a United Airlines flight from London’s Heathrow Airport to Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport—the same airport where a United passenger was violently dragged off of an overbooked flight earlier this month.
There’s been a lot of buzz about Uber working on a flying car proposal lately, but a new announcement from the company’s head of product deflated this hype faster than rigid airship interest post Hindenburg. It turns out Uber wants to take us out of our cars and cram us into shitty little planes.
Just two weeks after terrifying video of a bloodied United Airlines passenger who was violently kicked off a flight for refusing to give up his seat went viral, another video has emerged showing an American Airlines employee challenging a passenger to hit him after a woman holding a baby was allegedly hit with her…
Force India Formula One team owner Vijay Mallya was arrested today in London on charges of fraud and conspiracy in India. The charges relate to $1.34 billion loaned to Mallya’s now-defunct Kingfisher Airlines by primarily Indian state-run banks.
The nightmarish delays that started Wednesday at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport apparently aren’t over after nearly four days, as reports of long lines and more flight delays popped up on Saturday morning. Doesn’t this really make you wish you could drive everywhere?
Three teens and an elderly 27-year-old hacked an online airplane ticket sales site and managed to sell off a staggering $307,000 worth of tickets on Facebook. What’d they do with the money? What do you think?
Twitter user Shannon Watts started a firestorm on Sunday by saying she saw three passengers barred from a flight on United Airlines, apparently because they were wearing spandex leggings. In responding, United representatives repeated that the airline can “refuse passengers who are not properly clothed.”
The electric car market is just now coming into focus, particularly bolstered by the new Chevrolet Bolt and its 200-mile-plus range. But what about electric planes? A start-up wants to build a commercial passenger electrified jet that can easily handle up to a 300 mile trip. Of course, that goal is contingent on…
U.S. and Canadian authorities are rightfully spooked following a plane crash in Ontario, Canada on Wednesday night. What’s got them shook? There’s absolutely no trace than anybody actually went down with the plane, sparking one of the weirdest mysteries of the year so far.
If you’ve ever traveled on a commercial airplane, there’s a likely chance you’ve noticed those little white swirls in the center of those engines on the wings. It may seem straightforward: to keep people on the ground advised when the turbofan is spinning, right? But that doesn’t explain everything.
Hey, why the hell don’t planes go that fast? I mean, they go faster than a car, I GUESS, but they don’t go faster than they did 20, 30, even 40 years ago. They actually fly slower than they once did. Here’s why.
Harrison Ford, carpenter, actor and plane man, was involved in a “potentially serious incident” last week when he landed on a taxiway instead of a runway at John Wayne Airport here in Orange County, flying right over a passenger jet. Now we have video to show how close he got.
Last week, I was on a flight to California, flipping through the various movies I could watch on the headrest. Boogie Nights was available. Great movie! Thing is, more than a few parts of it might have made the family sitting next to me a little uncomfortable.
A regional jet struck a very unlucky deer during takeoff out of Charlotte, NC, springing a fuel leak in the right wing and forcing the plane to return for an emergency landing. Birds? That makes sense. But a deer?
Roughly two years after he crashed a plane on a golf course, NBC is reporting that Harrison Ford was “involved in a potentially serious incident” on Monday while cruising in his single engine Husky. Harrison!
You may recall the story of one Long Island man’s struggle to keep his small plane in his driveway. In that story, I was very pro-guy-with-plane, and I still am. Sadly, though, the town of Oceanside, Long Island, ended up being quite anti-guy-with-plane, and recently his plane was dismantled and removed.
Rather than your typical “Hi, welcome aboard United Airlines Flight whatever, remember to put your oxygen mask on before assisting others” greeting, a pilot in street clothes welcomed passengers aboard Saturday with a rant on politics and her divorce. Just another reason why it’s always fun to fly the friendly skies!
If you thought cars were an expensive hobby, check into the operating costs of a used prop plane. (It’s a lot.) Unless, apparently, you whip up your own aircraft from some plans drawn up about 90 years ago like the guy in this video.
