Drawing a Dreamliner

Here you can watch as the 737 MAX 9 and the 787-10 are flown in a synchronized aerial ballet that is one of a kind.  On the ground each of these planes is large, but when you see them flying next to each other that close in the air you can really appreciate the massive … Continued

737 Chair

Have you ever wondered how big the engines on a commercial airplane are?  They don’t look too big on the wings of planes right?  Well, this my friends is the cowling of the engine from a Boeing 737.  What exact engine model is not said, but that doesn’t really matter much does it?  The multi … Continued

The Milky Way, From an Airplane

0

At one point in time, I tried to start up a website for people to share photos they took from airplane windows.  I never had a chance to finish it which is a shame because it could have been cool.  Anyway, Alessandro Merga one-upped every wing-shot I ever took with one of the Milky-Way.  He … Continued

Rolls Royce currently makes the most advanced Jet engines in the world.  In this video series below you can see what does into building the brand new precision engineered marvel.   I think the most impressive feat is that it only takes 20 days to build them.  That’s efficiency there. {MAKE}

LEGO Paper Airplane Maker

0

Arthur Sacek has made the construction of paper airplanes one step simpler with his LEGO creation.  Ok, Simpler might not be the correct word since this looks far more complicated then necessary to make a simple paper airplane, but it is damn cool.  He made it for Arrow.  I’m not sure what the site is … Continued

360 Cockpit Views

I just cannot get enough of these 360 degree videos that are cropping up on YouTube, and generally all over.  They are super cool!  This one shows the inside of a cockpit of an Airbus A320 as it travels from Zurich to Geneva.  The YouTube video isn’t as long, or as high quality as the initial one, but … Continued

Clouds from Cloud Level

I’m pretty sure I haven’t posted this before, but hey, maybe I have, oh well.  German photographer Rüdiger Nehmzow has a different take on photographing clouds.  Now, I have a certain soft spot for clouds, and I try and always take photos out of airplane windows when I travel.  But I’m sitting safe inside a commercial Boeing 7×7. … Continued

I have a thing for desks.  I built my own oversized one (now that I think of it, I don’t think I ever posted that DIY, I should get on that), and I’ve wanted to make another one  of a different theme for some time now.  Well, reddit user SirLanceOlong decided to make his own … Continued
