Maybe the best clip of a catapult shot to date and the perfect video to get us started off.
Rhinodrivr is no stranger when it comes to viral videos. This one of him tearing it up in a dogfight shows how physical the fighter business can get.
Scooters Down On The Deck
Draken International's A-4Ks ripping past a FREMM frigate. Note the cockpit upgrades and the A-4's crazy roll-rate at the end.
An amazing display of the Eurofighter Typhoon's thrust to weight ratio:
Hornet On The Edge
My nerves were racked just watching this. Yellow Shirts absolutely rule.
Composite 777 Landing View
A unique look at instruments and the view out the front of this 777 as it sets down on a brilliantly lit runway at Kuwait International.
Chasing The Basket
Aerial refueling helicopters is NOT an easy thing. This Pave Hawk chases the basket on an HC-130J as it buzzes Patrick Air Force Base.
Diving In Formation With Human Wingmen
Is this awesomely nuts or what? The wingsuit is an amazing creation.
Naval Aviation Show And Tell
Super low altitude tanking, bombs dropping, supersonic flyby, oh my!
You get a flare! And you get a flare! And EVERYONE gets a flare!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone!
