Going to the gas station in a car is a chore made to remind you of your own mortality. Going to the (metaphorical) gas station in a F-15 jet? That’s a delightful dessert made to show off our awesomeness. Here’s a video of a NASA F-15 jet taking a pit stop to get refueled while in mid-flight mid-air from the jet’s…
Fighter jets and aircraft carriers and fighter jets taking off of aircraft carriers are some of our favorite things in the world for so many reasons. One of them is just how perfect each launch has to be. Just look at how the wheels of the jet reach the end of the aircraft carrier as the fighter jet achieves lift off.
Yowza. I think if I hopped on this jet-powered boat in New Zealand my hair would fall out, my neck would get stretched out and my face would be permanently smushed in. It goes fast. Like a runaway roller coaster that's off its track fast. I mean, look how quickly it zips in and around the turns of the canyon.
These images may or may not correspond to a refueling incident between a KC-135 Stratotanker and a French Air Force's Rafale jet fighter, but I don't really care because they are just an excuse to say that this is perhaps the coolest, most space-invaders-looking jet flying today.
I don't know what this is. I don't know where it comes from, I don't know what's doing on the road, I don't know its propulsion method, and I don't know who is Maverick and Goose here. But I know that, even while it looks ridiculous, I want a ride.
After claiming the kill of an attack helicopter a few days ago, Syrian rebel forces have posted this video showing a MiG-23 being shot down over Al Muhassan, a small town near Dayr az-Zawr, 280 miles northeast of the capital Damascus and west of the country's Iraqi border.
On Friday, the Navy quietly released a "market survey" asking the big defense contractors for their "candidate[s]" for "strike fighter aircraft" in the decades to come. Which is a little weird, considering the Pentagon is currently spending a trillion dollars on just such an aircraft: the troubled Joint Strike Fighter.
Gotta love this video. It starts out innocently enough with a bit of Jet-style garage rock, then the beat drops and everything goes sideways.
Libya's air power is destroyed. Its ground power is (largely) blasted. All because of a persistent storm of aircraft enforcing a strict no-fly zone—planes like this French Super Etendard fighter, dumping a plume of fuel across the sun.
It's not the setup for a joke. Jets and light bulbs really do have something in common now that GE is using jet engine cooling mechanisms inside bright, lightweight, low-energy LED bulbs. You'll have to wait to buy them though.
He says he's not obsessive—we'll leave that for you to decide. But Nathan Shedroff certainly has an obsessive eye for good design, prompting him to amass an multi-year collection of stuff you would have found aboard the jet.
A creative bunch of tinkerers think the recent trend of self-launching gliders needs a bit of a boost. So instead of outfitting their high performance sailplane with an electric or small piston motor, they've attached a jet engine that folds neatly into the fuselage.
The jet that's supposed to make up more than 90 percent of America's combat aviation fleet may have become a lot easier to shoot down.
It looks like a special effect, but it's not. What you're watching is an F-35B supersonic stealth jet spend 30 seconds suspended 150ft in the air, for the very first time.
Russia's been testing its new Sukhoi T-50 stealth fighter jets and so far they're a success. This video shows the first test flight and is supposedly also the very first time the public is getting to see the bird.
Please, can somebody tell me what the hell is this green thing parked in a Russian airfield? Who built this nutty contraption?
At the announcement of their new superfast Jet phone, Samsung used used Project Natal-esque holographic gestures for effect. The Jet seems cool, but we just want to hear more about the holographic gimmickry!
Maybe I'm a cynic, but this seems like the laziest stab at making a "viral" video yet. Samsung wants to promote their new Jet phone, so they pretended they pulled a crazy stunt in London.
