This is one crazy archive video showing the crop dusters of Columbia back in the ’50s. Spraying cotton was quite a business back then, but what really stands out is the incredible maneuvers these pilots performed with their little Piper Cubs to spread the load evenly. No wonder they were called daredevil aerial crop dusters… check it out!

Greg Gasson is an American professional skydiver having jumped thousands of times out of airplanes. After all these jumps, Greg wanted to do a first… be the first to land in another aircraft. Check out this video and see for yourself how he managed to pull this stunt off.

Plane to plane skydive

Ever wondered what a World War II airplane could do to a helicopter? Well this short video will quite clearly showcase the destruction an airplanes propeller can cause to a helicopter. That poor Jet Ranger “parked” nicely on the grass is nothing more than chewing material for that big brutes propeller.

This is a compilation of some of the greatest low passes ever, soundtrack of the video is The Who – Baba O’Riley. Lots of action here, from low flying airliners to high speed jet fighters going down on the deck. Enjoy a great video!

Son, did we land or were we shot down?

This video reminds me of a joke I heard some time ago. A young co-pilot performed an extremely rough landing… and such was the case that the company he was working at had a rule: the pilots of the aircraft had to stay near the door and wave their passengers goodbye. After his very hard landing, the young co-pilot did not have the guts to look his passengers in the eye. As each passenger passed in front of him the only relief he got was from hoping they will not pass any smart comments regarding his landing. Finally the last passenger was preparing to step out of the plane, an old lady… she approaches the co-pilot and asks him:”Son, did we land or were we shot down?”… that’s what first came into my mind when i saw this landing.

RC indoor aerobatics

It always amazes me to see what this pilots can do with their small radio controlled planes. This is just another example of having a great time with a scale model. Guess you really need some skills to perform this type of aerobatics.

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.

Jurgis Kayris is a Lithuanian aerobatic pilot and an aircraft engineer. He has won over the years numerous aerobatic championships, created a series of breath taking aerobatic maneuvers ( one of which is the Kairys Wheel ) and also helped develop the famous Russian aerobatic Sukhois: Su-26,29 and 31. He also developed his own aerobatic aircraft he JuKa, a very impressive little plane. He took his plane against a really fast truck in a drag race. You can probably guess who the winner was…

Plane vs Truck

… more than 50 years ago. In fact, the year is 1952, and these flying machines are considered the latest and most futuristic aircraft of the day. Back then this was serious business but today this is just weird and somewhat funny. My personal favorite is the Skybaby. That little plane seems like 400 pounds of fun…

The future of aviation…

Bike above, plane below

This is really one very very cool stunt. Stunt bikers have always wanted to jump over all sorts of things, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that this guy chose a plane as his obstacle. Perfect timing, by the way…
