Flying Bicycle

Flying Bicycle

The original "flying bicycle" was built only once and managed at the beginning of the 1920s the flight from France to England.
A bit later the plane crashed, the pilot (not the builder) was killed.

US Aircraft's Cemetery Like You Never Seen it

US Aircraft's Cemetery Like You Never Seen it - One of the Most Interesting Place on Earth

An airplane graveyard, sometimes better known by the American term of aircraft boneyard, designates a storage area for aircraft that are discarded after their years of service or directly fault of budget or because of the presence of obsolete technology.

Most aircraft are kept for storage or converted into scrap after provision for spare parts. Deserts, like those in south-western United States, are good places for these cemeteries are, because of the size of the aircraft, very extensive.

The dry climate also reduces corrosion and potentially extends the shelf life.

Volocopter VC200

Dawn of a revolution in urban mobility - first manned flight with the Volocopter VC200

 

Dawn of a revolution in urban mobility

The premiere of manned flights with the world’s first certified Multicopter, e-volo’s Volocopter VC200, marks the beginning of a new era in urban mobility. For the first time humans’ dream of personal flight as a daily routine becomes attainable. As such it not only offers more widespread use in conventional aircraft domains, but brings us another step closer to air taxi services and entire transportation systems in the third dimension.

“The flight was totally awesome” pilot Alexander Zosel said right after his landing. “I got in, we did the pre-checks for what felt like maybe 20 seconds, and after that I’d already got the all-clear for flying. I didn’t wait long, I simply pushed the lever upward and the Volocopter simply sprung upward in a single bound.
It is definitely a sublime feeling to lift off, fly the first few meters, and then actually take my hand off the joystick and think that, yeah, it’s really as if I’m standing on the ground, and then I look down and there are 20-25 meters beneath me. So it’s definitely unbelievable what we’ve achieved here. It’s seriously unbelievable!”
