The Thunderbirds

0

Blair Bunting Flies with the Thunderbirds from Jaron Schneider on Vimeo. I love the Air Force, and all things military aviation.  I’ve seen The Thunderbirds twice, and The Blue Angels once.  Watching those pilots fly those planes at near super-sonic speeds inches from each other is damn impressive.  To be given the ability to go … Continued

Boeing 777 as Paper

0

The Boeing 777 was in production when I was just getting into engineering, and aerospace, and things like that.  So naturally, I was fascinated with the plane, and read about it and stuff as much as I could (this was before the internet existed in a easy to use fashion).  However, I never obsessed over … Continued

Wobbly Planes

0

The music is eerie, and such a poor choice I think.  Also, there’s no reason it needs to be so long. But anyway, what you just watched (or partially watched), was a time-lapse video of planes landing on the same runway at London Heathrow Airport.  The clouds constantly moving in the background gives the illusion … Continued

RC Planes are FAST

2

Holy crap, that thing is fast.  How can the guy operating it even see where it is, or where it’s going, or stuff?  Maybe there’s an onboard video that he’s watching, but I doubt that would help, it’s moving far too fast to be controlable. Don’t get me wrong, I instantly want to build this … Continued

Giant LEGO stuff

Some enterprising young lads have decided to make a relief map of Europe out of LEGOs.  This is awesome.  There’s tons of pictures after the jump because I want to keep the front page of the blog less then 100000000 pixles long, and keep the loading times down too.  So click the jump, or if … Continued

Stumbles I lost count

1

Another heaping helping of wrongness courtesy of everyone’s favorite add on, Stumble Upon.  We got memes, gifs, Nazis, and more, all for your viewing pleasure, all right after the click.  Play a game of scrabble, hop on a plane to Australia, and remember, you are getting all of this information through the internet, what is … Continued

Hyper Realistic Model Airplanes

0

I will admit, the miniature killer episode where they say “Hyper specific”  has gotten me using the term hyper more often.  And whats the harm there?  Especially when it’s regarding these amazing model airplanes! You can’t tell it from these pictures, but those are scale models.  Hyper detailed scale models.  Down to every last rivet.  … Continued

RC Plane F(l)ight.

3

This video is the most awesome thing I have ever seen.  Pasqualy had himself an awesome 4th of July.  He modified a cheap EasyStar RC plane with a wireless video camera, and some model rockets/fireworks attached to the undersides of the wings to have the most fun ever. I simply cannot explain just how awesome … Continued

Gigantic Model Airplane

1

Worlds Largest Model RC Plane – The best video clips are right here When you look at that, it doesn’t look like it can fly. Clearly it’s just too big to fly, those propellers could take off that guy’s hands with ease, this is not a model plane. It’s hamster’s strategic bomber. Sure enough though, … Continued

Personal Flying Machine

0

This is a pretty interesting airplane.  At under $150,000 it’s cheaper then some cars, and so much more useful, and legally faster.  I want one, I could use it for scouting missions for my bunker location.  The fact that it can land on water makes it doublely useful because I can find a secluded mountain … Continued
