A Russian military jet that was en route to Syria disappeared from radar on Sunday. Russian authorities say that it crashed into the Black Sea. Reportedly, all 92 people on board were killed, including at least 60 members of the Red Army Choir.
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…
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.
Holy bucket of bricks—that 152,455-piece, 677-pound, 6.56-foot-long Lego Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 jet engine doesn't only look insane—it also moves! Watch the most complicated Lego machine in action.
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.
About two billion light-years from Earth, there's a huge jet of matter emanating from the core of galaxy 3C303. The jet carries a current of 10^18 amps, making it by far the highest electric current ever seen.
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.
A batch of new set pics from the set of Matthew Vaughan's X-Men: First Class reveal the filming of a crucial scene where disaster strikes mutantkind. Spoilery pics and speculation below.
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.
