F16 Drones

F16 Drones

This is awesome! Didn’t realize drone technology had advanced this far so quickly. They are using up their obsolete F-16’s. Not a good day for the future of manned aircraft. Seems like the PILOT is on the endangered list. This little four minute video is really something. A first for a full size jet airplane. Thousands of planes that were grave yard bound, with costs in the hundreds of millions, can now be used as never before. These F-16’s Boeing aircraft have been in the bone yard at Davis-Monahan for 15 years , and now being used as drones.

Piper Cub Stunt Flying Comedy Act

Piper Cub Stunt Flying Comedy Act

Piper Memorial Airport (KLHV) featured Greg Koontz and the Alabama Boys, Piper Cub Stunt Flying Comedy Act again this year at the Anual Sentimental Journey Fly- In. I was fortunate enough to video most of the act with my camera for your viewing pleasure.

It is not the same as being there to see it, but it is the next best thing. Greg does things with a Piper Cub that are hard to imagine, and the surprise ending is his landing on the worlds smallest airport!

Clip is a bit long at 20 minutes, but it's worth watching

British Airways - Building the 787-9 Dreamliner

British Airways - Building the 787-9 Dreamliner

British Airways has welcomed the arrival of our first 787-9 Dreamliner. This time-lapse video takes you behind the scenes at Boeing's factory where the aircraft is expertly built.

The 787-9 is 20ft longer than its 787-8 predecessor, making room for our new painstakingly designed eight seat First cabin.

The 787-9 will start flying to Delhi in October 2015, followed by Abu Dhabi, Muscat, Kuala Lumpur and Austin.

 


C17 Globemaster Airdrop

C17 Globemaster Airdrop Over Afghanistan

The air drop is a form of airlift that saw its birth during World War II to supply the troops, otherwise inaccessible, that could have been airborne forces themselves.
During the first drops, they threw or pushed packets from quilted aéronefs1. Later it was dropping small crates with parachutes through the side doors of the aircraft. The arrival of large doors at the rear can be lowered in flight crews allowed to deploy large pallets.

With larger aircraft, the US military devised the low-height extraction technique, making possible the delivery of tanks and other equipment of large size. The dropping of weapons reached a point where a huge bomb was the payload. The BLU-82, nicknamed Daisy Cutter (daisies Mower French), served in Vietnam and recently in Afghanistan. The bomb GBU-43 / B, with a weight of 10 250 kg, was deployed to the Persian Gulf for the Liberation of Iraq. These weapons are carried by cargo aircraft, acting as bombers.

In psychological operations, air drops are used to launch propaganda leaflets.

In addition to combat operations, UN and humanitarian had been dropping food or medical supplies, recently in South Sudan
