What you see above is the Rungrado 1st of May Stadium, purported to be the largest stadium in the world by capacity, which is estimated to be 114,000. It’s one of the crown jewels of the North Korean capital of Pyongyang, captured here by a photographer who was given rare permission to fly over and take extended video…
Sometimes, the cosmos line up in just such a way that makes you think, Hail Satan.
A former security guard at JFK Airport filed a lawsuit against former employer Allied Security Services and her supervisors at the job, alleging that male bosses forced female colleagues to have sex that was broadcast via security cameras. One of her former coworkers, who has also left the job, echoed her claims.
This looks really terrifying, yet I cannot look away.
In January, authorities officially called off the search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, nearly three years after the plane vanished from radar on March 8, 2014. The reckoning, though, isn’t over. In a new report released Tuesday, the Australia Transport Safety Bureau called the failure to find the plane “almost…
By now, you may have heard that Elon Musk has come up with yet another wondrous glimpse into the very near (?) future that he will build for us. The SpaceX CEO told attendees of the International Astronautical Congress in Australia earlier this week that he was simplifying his rocket production by focusing on one…
Some weird shit may or not have gone down at Laguna Seca before this past weekend’s IMSA WeatherTech Sports Car Championship.
Two F-18E Super Hornet fighter jets flew over Laguna Seca before this weekend’s IMSA Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge race, and they got very close at the end. Some fans reported to Jalopnik that they saw the planes touch wings. Others merely say a chunk of plane came off mid-air. Have you found a plane part…
Carolina Potter spent sleepless nights wracking her brain for clues to where her husband Randy could be. The 53-year-old went missing in January, when he left their home for work at a T-Mobile operations center in Kansas City.

Please cue the delightful wordsmith of our time, Xzibit: yo dawg, I heard you like Texas, so we put the University of Texas’ mascot inside Texas on top of Texas. Because Texas.
A U.S. Air Force pilot flying an aircraft died last week after a crash at the Nevada Test and Training Range, according to Military.com. Very few details about the incident have been released as the military says information about the incident is classified.
With insurance claims, relief efforts and attempts to salvage property going on in the Houston area after Hurricane Harvey, it can be easy to forget that more than just humans had to face the storm. But these shelter animals weren’t an afterthought, and got a plane ride out of Texas with the cabin to themselves.
One of the best forms of transportation to and from an airport—at least, for the person flying—is by a car that someone else is driving. You don’t have to worry about missing a shuttle, parking fees, hauling bags forever or any of that. But, because we can’t have nice things, a Boston airport wants to mess it all up.
A meme about whether an airplane can take off on a treadmill has been going around social media lately, tearing friendships apart with its divisiveness, ruining families and sending the world further into chaos. But now it’s time to put an end to the madness. Let’s look at the science!
A 17-hour test flight where you end up right back where you started is probably pretty boring. Any way to spice things up is probably welcome, which is likely why Boeing test pilots used their long, boring test flight to draw a massive outline of their plane all over America’s beautiful face.
A lot of people have been trying to bring guns on planes lately. Loaded and chambered guns.

Designed in the 1950s and still used today, the Lockheed U-2 (nicknamed Dragon Lady) is a super specialized, high-altitude spy plane. It’s light enough to fly at 70,000 feet, but notoriously difficult to operate. Especially land. Landing is a bitch and a half. That’s where a Tesla Model S comes in.
