Building your own 13-foot long remote control replica of the U.S.S. Kitty Hawk is challenging enough. But what good’s an aircraft carrier without any aircraft? So to further up the challenge, its creators also found a way to land an RC plane on it.
Most of us look for a scare during the month of October, but this skydiver got one that was less than desirable during a recent jump—probably because it happened 10,000 feet above the ground. That’s pretty far away from the candy, too.
What are you doing, plane? You are not a car! You do not belong on the highway, with all the cars! Return from whence you came!
Pictures don’t get more British than this. Or fuel consuming.
An unnamed Michigan Tech student who’s been giving interviews under the alias “Mark” got blackout drunk Friday night and stumbled home to his roommate. This would hardly be news—Mark puts his pants on one leg at a time and drinks to sloppy excess just like the rest of us—but when Mark puts his pants on and drinks to…
It’s amazing what a change of perspective can do—and in this case, a simple camera perspective trick transforms a huge Tokyo airport into an tiny toys set fit for a playroom.
It’s been nearly a year and a half since Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 disappeared and investigators finally have their first big lead in the search. A piece of an aircraft’s wing—a flaperon, to be specific—washed up on Réunion Island, east of Madagascar, some 3000 miles away from where investigators were looking. But…
NASA has been working on ways to improve search-and-rescue after a plane crash. But how do they test it? Simple, they hoist planes 100 feet into the air and drop them... over and over again.
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…
In one of the largest single incidents of its kind, some piece-of-shit human being(s) pointed a bunch of lasers at planes flying over New Jersey last night.
Here’s a wild video of Richard Hammond getting strapped onto a plane as it takes off and flies in the air and does crazy aerial tricks for Top Gear. It’s the most ridiculous type of roller coaster a person could possibly ride and Hammond is literally holding onto his butt cheeks throughout the entire ride. Fun stunt!
It’s scary. It’s uncomfortable. It spills your tomato juice. It’s turbulence—but how dangerous is it, actually?
An AP investigation has forced the FBI to admit that it uses at least 13 dummy corporations with planes like the one shown above to fly low-and-slow aerial spy missions over U.S. cities, capturing video and sometimes cellular signals from 30 cities in 11 states in a recent month.
You should have seen the other guy, said the plane. The plane, a Boeing 738 operated by Turkish Airlines, was landing at Nevşehir-Capadoccia airport when it got its nose punched in by a flock of birds. The birds, judging from the marks and cracks and color of said punched in plane nose, presumably suffered a worse…
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.
3D printing has just reached another major milestone as the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration has officially approved GE’s T25 as the first 3D printed part cleared for use on a commercial jet engine.
When a Florida mailman landed a gyrocopter with a USPS logo on the lawn of the Capitol today, I’m sure you were asking yourself the same question I was: Does the postal service really deliver mail via gyrocopter? Not today. But it turns out they did, back in the 1930s.
You see them everywhere: On highway signs, plane tickets, and even humblebraggy Twitter updates. Some are obvious and some make no sense. But what do these three-letter airport codes really mean?
