Bud Light Diving

This is one really funny commercial. This skydiver wannabe is confronting his fear while looking down from the airplane. Yeah, he really doesn’t want to jump… but his instructor makes a generous offer throwing out some beer( catch it if you can! ). Seems this is one offer the pilot cannot refuse… See ya, dude!!!

Bud Light Diving

Jeb Corliss is a professional BASE jumper, skydiver, and wingsuit flyer. “BASE” is an acronym that stands for the four categories of fixed objects from which one can jump:

* Building
* Antenna (an uninhabited tower such as an aerial mast)
* Span (a bridge or arch)
* Earth (a cliff or other natural formation)

On April 2006, Jeb Corliss was arrested while attempting to jump from the observation deck of the Empire State Building. As a result he was fired and banned from all future Discovery Networks projects (he had been hired as host of the Discovery Channel program Stunt Junkies). Anyway check out this great video featuring Jeb Corliss having fun all over the world jumping from all sorts of things. Also included is some wingsuit action. Enjoy!

RC helicopter fun flying

After seeing this video i was like WOW! This guy is amazing. The things he does with that little RC helicopter are just amazing. Anyway, his nae is Alan Szabo, Jr. and he went “fun flying” with his Raptor 90 in Las Vegas in 2004. Have a look at his amazing display. Boy got skills!!!

Airforce run

Don’t really know much about this one. All I can say is this guy is really funny. At first i thought it was going to be one of those lame cockpit videos (quite a lot of them out there) but at the end i was laughing so hard it almost hurt.

Airforce run

An Airbus A319 pilot was falling behind schedule this particular day. So he really really wanted to take off as soon as possible. Only he took off a bit too quickly… wonder what happened to the coffee of the passengers ha ha ha… Really cool takeoff.

Huge RC B-52 bomber

This is one really huge radio controlled B-52 bomber. Of course, it seems a bit natural since the B-52 is a huge plane in real life, so once you shrink it down to scale it still dwarfs other RC aircraft. Makes everything else look like a cheap toy.

Series of autorotations performed with the French Eurocopter Ec-120 Colibri, one of the best looking helicopters in the world. Both external and internal camera views for this one. Check it out!

Check out this amazing little RC aircraft and the crazy things it can do. It looks as if the controller uses his airplane to challenge the laws of physics. Anyway great performance and great skills. This has to be one of the best RC videos out there.

Insane indoor aerobatics

Sensations

The Patrouille Acrobatique de France commonly referred to as Patrouille de France and sometimes abbreviated as PAF, is the precision aerobatic demonstration team of the French Air Force. Pilots fly the Dassault-Breguet/Dornier Alpha Jet since 1981. Jump inside the cockpit of the Patrouille de France pilots for an amazing ride. Feel what they feel as they fly in close formation with precision and elegance. Sensations…

FAI World Grand Prix

The Federation Aeronautique Internationale (FAI) started a project a few years ago. The FAI World Grand Prix Project aims at :

* developing and popularising Air Sports as an image of precision and accuracy, technical performance, individual achievement and team spirit.
* offering a testing bench and a practice field for advanced technologies.
* arousing vocations for aeronautical careers by attracting young people to dynamic and spectacular events.
