Crosswind Difficulties - Winter 2013/14

Some landing and take-off highlights in awkward wind conditions at Birmingham this winter (a record winter for stormy conditions in the UK). Note the frequent flexing of the planes' wings in response to the turbulence.

Two Minutes of Aviation Majesty

Two Minutes of Aviation Majesty

For WW II aviation buffs, this is something to see. Filmed in England July on 12-13 2014 at The Imperial War Museum in Cambridgeshire. This 2:30 minute video is well worth watching.

The Besler Steam Plane

The Besler Steam Plane

A Travel Air 2000 biplane made the world's first piloted flight under steam power over Oakland, California, on 12 April 1933. The strangest feature of the flight was its relative silence; spectators on the ground could hear the pilot when he called to them from mid-air. The aircraft, piloted by William Besler, had been fitted with a two-cylinder, 150 hp reciprocating engine.

Sukhoi Fighter Demo

Sukhoi Fighter Demo

 This is an amazing demonstration of Rafale & Sukhoi fighter agility and performance. Hard to imagine doing flat spins in formation under complete and absolute control and multiple tumble maneuvers in a fighter.
