Jumbo lightning

This Jumbo Jet takes off in the middle of a storm and is punished by Mother Nature with one massive lightning strike. This video may look a bit dramatic, but lightning strikes are not really that uncommon. Nevertheless, this is one awesome moment caught on video.

Rolling the 707

On August 7, 1955, Boeing test pilot Alvin M. “Tex” Johnston rolled the Boeing 707 prototype, known as Dash-80, in a demonstration flight over Lake Washington.

Future of Aviation?

With our precious oil reserves diminishing by the day, and as the price for fuel is on ascending trend, can this be the future of aviation? Redefining the expression ” Iron Bird”.

Really bad take-off

Well, I have seen some very bad take-offs in my life. But this one, I have to admit, must one of the worst. I think the airplane in question is a Grumman G-21 Goose flying boat. This type of airplane has been around since the 1930s. Seems such a tragic end for a WWII veteran. Good thing nobody got hurt.

Jumbo drag race

Some times commercials can be really funny. Take this one for instance. It’s crazy and funny and great. Two Boeing 747 Jumbo crews battle it out in the airport using their planes. A real laugh. How would you fell if you heard “Your flight is ready for boarding” and then saw two Jumbos with two insane crews at the gate?

How often do you get the chance to film something extraordinary? A Mexican passenger on-board this Boeing 767 was just trying to film the final approach and landing at Guatemala City Airport. He got more than he hoped for… He managed to film the crash and offer us a perspective from the passenger’s point of view. And that is quite amazing.

Another crash

Seems this guy was trying to do a low pass at an air show or just wanted to land. Don’t really know much about this one. Anyway, thing is he crashes this twin-engined cargo airplane. And it is ugly.
