Sure looked like one. Too late for it to be a flare marking the airfield.

How about this one. Can't understand German but it probably mentioned something about the pilot aiming for the center line.

It's blocked on copyright grounds. But I saw it. How would you have liked to have been that poor dude on the beach?

No thank you. The front wheel of that airplane couldn't have been 6" over his head. Who sun baths at the end of a runway anyway?

I think that's going to qualify as the lowest flight ever in the informal competition.

I can't embed this one, but this is from 2001. This is what happens when you blow your approach to the deck and make a last minute correction.

nother good one for your big screen:



I thought it neat to see just how quickly those big C130 can maneuver.

Zaph, is that a training SAM that went off at the snow covered airfield (1:38 mark)?


Isn't there some type of unloading on the fly performed, like the plane never touches the ground, it simply unloads its cargo using some sort of parachutes deployed horizontally and just takes altitude afterwards or have I watched too many movies ?

Something like around the 0:40 mark in this video :

Alvin M. "Tex" Johnston was quite a character. The amazing part is that he did it twice over the same course. I keep waiting for someone to repeat his feat with a 747. Saw a prototype 777 fly the same course over Seafair but sadly no barrel roll.


Nice short documentary on the Tex and the Dash-80 roll:

They definitely still do aerial cargo drops. There are plenty videos of failed drops.
Not sure how often they do heavy equipment like in the video, Zaph would be better to answer that question.

I've seen that version of it. I didn't realize that they had caught it from the ground that close. I've always only seen ones that were so far away you could barely tell it was a plane, let alone it was a 707 doing a barrel roll.

They're a little wary of doing them if they can avoid it.

This is one reason why:

Five minutes of F-22s refueling

It looks like most of the video is the second one trying to plug in.

Love threads like this..

My only comments... B-1 is a great plane when it works... first time you spend 8 hours trying to get it air borne and its -30 out you will learn to hate it with a passion.

I love the 135, such a tough dependable plane easiest thing I have ever turned wrenches on.

C-17 is a dang good plane now, but some shenanigans went on during its test phase before final approval... I don't think it was Boeing driven, but either USAF or congress pushed some ridiculous orders down on the 141 guys.

B-52

My favorite plane ever to work on because she was my first..

I used to love dealing with the BUFF. Damn things never broke.

You guys thought the rest were fun, check this out. Dryden released this recently. It's a compilation of early X-Planes, including some pretty rare and cool ones.
