The US and South Korea's biggest live fire drill ever was pure madness

There are so many things going on in this year’s US and South Korea’s live fire exercise that it’s hard to remember what you’re seeing because each drill just keeps raising the ante over the previous one. All I know is that there were a ton of tanks, helicopters that filled the sky, planes that scorched flybys, and so… »8/28/15 1:55pm8/28/15 1:55pm

These Idiots Pointed A Laser At A Police Helicopter 

If pointing a laser at an aircraft is a bad idea (trust me, it is a very bad idea) then pointing a laser at a police air unit is basically like calling ahead to make yourself a reservation in jail. This video shows three individuals in Vaughan, Ontario doing exactly that. If you’re in the mood for some justice porn… »8/23/15 10:40am8/23/15 10:40am

A helicopter closely chases a race car in this truly insane stunt

You see the word insane get thrown around on the Internet a lot. It’s a good word! But few things actually deserve the word insane. This stunt does though. Felix Baumgartner (the dude who jumped from space) pilots a Bolkov BO105 aerobatic helicopter that is basically having a movie car chase scene with a race car and… »8/05/15 11:00pm8/05/15 11:00pm

Black Hawk helicopter explodes after landing on minefield, four killed

This is a graphic video showing a Colombian Army Blackhawk helicopter landing on a minefield. It explodes tragically, killing four and injuring six of the 15 people on board. The explosives in the minefield were supposedly detonated by the guerilla movement FARC. So sad. War sucks on both sides. »7/15/15 8:20pm7/15/15 8:20pm

Watch a 10-engine drone transform from a helicopter into a plane

NASA’s Greased Lightning GL-10 is a beast of a drone (it has 10 engines!) that’s the closest thing we have to a Transformer in real life. It can flip itself into a helicopter and then fly like an airplane and then revert back to helicopter mode. It’s awesome seeing the wings tilt back and forth as it changes gears.

US Marines leaving a Super Stallion helicopter looks like a movie scene

Yup, real life is cooler than the movies. Especially when that life is of a US Marine. Here are five Marines walking away from a CH-53E Super Stallion helicopter in the desert in a training exercise. It looks more badass and perfectly picturesque than any still from a Hollywood military movie. »4/21/15 1:15am4/21/15 1:15am

The U.S. Spent $7 Billion Developing This Helicopter It Never Built

The Kiowa Warrior is slated to retire in 2025, the Chinook in 2035, and both the Apache and Black Hawk will be gone by 2040. We thought we had a suitable replacement for all of these platforms in the Boeing-Sikorsky RAH-66 Comanche. But then, this next-gen stealth chopper vanished in a puff of bureaucratic smoke. »12/05/14 11:40am12/05/14 11:40am

This Trusty U.S. Chopper Is Heading Home After a Decade of War

"We fly like nobody else in the Army," Col. Michael Musiol, commander of the 82nd Combat Aviation Brigade, recently told Stars and Stripes. He's right. The OH-58 Kiowa family of helicopters has been serving on the front lines—both as an advanced scout and emergency evacuator—for nearly 50 years. But as its tenure in… »12/03/14 11:40am12/03/14 11:40am
