Two Minutes of Aviation Majesty

Two Minutes of Aviation Majesty

For WW II aviation buffs, this is something to see. Filmed in England July on 12-13 2014 at The Imperial War Museum in Cambridgeshire. This 2:30 minute video is well worth watching.

The Besler Steam Plane

The Besler Steam Plane

A Travel Air 2000 biplane made the world's first piloted flight under steam power over Oakland, California, on 12 April 1933. The strangest feature of the flight was its relative silence; spectators on the ground could hear the pilot when he called to them from mid-air. The aircraft, piloted by William Besler, had been fitted with a two-cylinder, 150 hp reciprocating engine.

Sukhoi Fighter Demo

Sukhoi Fighter Demo

 This is an amazing demonstration of Rafale & Sukhoi fighter agility and performance. Hard to imagine doing flat spins in formation under complete and absolute control and multiple tumble maneuvers in a fighter.

The Flying Years

The Flying Years - Aviation History - Full Documentary

On a bleak December day in 1903, among the dunes at Kitty Hawk in North Carolina, a fragile bi-plane took off in a strong buffeting wind and flew for just 12 seconds, skimming 120 feet across the sands. At the controls a man called Orvill Wright. Man's first controlled powered flight. Only sixty years later the world's first supersonic jetliner thundered into the air at Toulouse in France. This programme tells the extraordinary story of flying history from Kitty Hawk to Concorde, from brave pioneers staggering into the air in their string bag machines, to the age of global mass air travel. It's a hell of a story.
