The US Air Force’s scientific research wing is giving Lockheed Martin $26.3 million “for the design, development, and production of a high power fiber laser,” which it expects to start testing on a tactical fighter jet in four years. Sounds cool and certainly futuristic, but the jury’s still out on whether these…
Celebrity-endorsed and backed JetSmarter, touted as the “Uber for jet planes,” allegedly owes its workers tens of thousands in missed overtime fees.
Somewhere over the Hamptons, the pilot told me to take the controls. To my left, there was a joystick, roughly the same size and dimension as my favorite ‘90s arcade game, After Burner. I clutched it, pulled back, and felt the jet climb.
Let’s have a bit of fun and compare my bathroom to the one on a Boeing Business Jet, which the company has been showing off at the European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition, or EBACE, in Geneva to make us all feel bad about ourselves.
I like planes, but we have only ever had a very casual relationship. Commercial airline stuff. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that a press drive tangentially involving Bentleys would also mean flying in a jet trainer at 4 Gs, redefining my perceptions of gravity—and astonishing me with the ends the brands will…
The Oak Ridge National Laboratory is charged with applying science and engineering for the U.S. Department Of Energy. That work includes transportation research, and as of last month, making the biggest-ever 3-D printed thing.
The “B” variant of Lockheed Martin’s F-35 fighter jet is supposed to be able to take off close to vertically and hover. Getting it to work has been problematic since the jet blast is hot enough to melt the concrete it’d be parked on, but it sure does show up spectacularly to this heavy-duty thermal imaging camera.
The VAQ-140 “Patriots” squadron has just returned from an eight-month deployment in the Mediterranean and the Arabian Gulf, where they flew some of the Navy’s newest aircraft built for “electronic attack” against ISIS/ISIL in Iraq and Syria. They came back with some breathtaking video footage, too.
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.
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.
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.
Cessna's newest version of its Citation, the CJ3+ received its FAA type certification on Thursday. The CJ3+ builds upon the popular CJ3 by adding the Garmin G3000 avionics suite, automatic cabin pressurization, and advanced maintenance diagnostics.
For all the boring photography jobs out there—weddings, corporate, et cetera—Sergeant Larry Reid Jr. did pretty well to avoid them all and land one of the most thrilling jobs imaginable. He is the photographer for the Air Force Thunderbirds. His job is to fly with the team and document their amazing flights.
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.
