Carbon Cub Kit - Wing Static Test (Ultimate)
http://www.cubcrafters.com - The test you see here is what the aircraft structure would withstand when the airplane's speed is increased to redline, pulled up quickly to a 6G pull-up, and the aileron is fully deflected... all at the same time. The rear spar is typically the weak link in this test, as there is tremendous load applied to the outboard rear spar when the aileron is deflected. Yakima, WA - 7.21.2008

Restored 1940s Northrop Flying Wing
This is a video of the Planes of Fame Museum's (Chino, California) Northrop N9MB Flying Wing during a recent (March 2009) engine run-up of its remaining serviceable engine. This aircraft was originally built as part of the November 1941 contract that Northrop was awarded for four, 1/3-scale aircraft, designated N9M, that were to act as flying test beds for various flight systems for the full-size XB-35 flying wing program and also to familiarize Air Force pilots with flying wing operations This aircraft experienced an in-flight engine fire in 2006 in its left, 300 hp., 8-cylinder Franklin 0-540-7 engine. The Flying Wing has since been totally restored, but the restoration of the rare Franklin 0-540-7 engine is another matter. There were only about 27 of these engines ever built and it is believed that only three of them exist today. The needed parts will need to be newly manufactured as necessary, but the museum has committed to getting this aircraft back in the air. Common parts from a 12-cylinder Franklin engine are already being scavenged to help in the restoration. The flying scenes in this video were taken just before the engine fire. Progress towards flying staus is well on its way and this aircraft will definitely once again fly, no doubt! Best, - Octane130 -

Verhees Delta, a FAST, tiny homebuilt airplane
It is small, only 50 HP but ...has cruise speed of 220 km/h. Its single retracting wheel gives the idea it is tricky on the ground, but it is not. Also stable in the air. Uses 13 liters/h at cruise speed. Has tank of 50 liters. So ...ideal to travel.





Ride in a U2 spy plane flight Beale AFB 1080 HD U-2 landing and takeoff
This is a video of a u-2 spy plane they call the dragon lady that went to 70,000 feet plus back in June of 2010. This was a crash course in the gear that you need to wear to get your airplane to the top of the world or the edge of space.





Lockheed U-2 Flight - 70,000ft (2 Seat TU-2 Trainer)
If you have any questions about this vid, please have a read of these notes first. =) It covers the most frequently asked ones. - Yes, it's James May, aka, Captain Slow of Top Gear fame. - No, this isn't from an episode of Top Gear. This was from a TV special called "James May On The Moon", which was made to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Apollo Moon Landings. James May has made several series that are completely unrelated to Top Gear. - The music is called "Flight" performed by Ty Unwin especially for this show. I'm sad to say that it is not currently available on its own. - The chase cars on take off and landing are a standard part of U-2 operations. They are there to assist the pilot, especially on landing. A combination of fragile and unstable rear landing gear, the aircrafts reluctance to descend and a high approach attitude that gives the pilot poor visibility of the ground has made the U-2 very difficult to land and so another U-2 pilot follows behind in the chase car to quite literally talk them down for the last few feet. A fair word of warning. I've been maintaining this video for over 3 years now and my patience for bad Call of Duty and drug jokes has worn rather thin. Either will have a pretty high chance of being deleted and the user blocked. When you get half a dozen of those comments a day, it becomes nothing more than spam. Please try to keep it clean and family friendly. In the spirit of the video. Check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VfP8Mm_1fXw For clips from the training as well as some alternative scenes from the flight. - Surely the most amazing and humbling views to be seen by any human on a regular basis. The view from a U-2 cruising at 70,000ft as the sky above turns black and the curvature of the Earth is visible. Despite first flying over 50 years ago, the U-2 continues to serve in the USAF, having outlasted its Mach 3 replacement, the SR-71 (also from Lockheed). The only people to have gone gone higher on any sort of regular, day-to-day basis were SR-71 pilots. Emphasis on the day-to-day part. Astronauts have, of course, gone higher still, but their missions are few and far between. Same goes for special one-off record setting flights such as those by the MiG-25 prototype, F-15 Streak Eagle or any other zoom climb that exceeded 70,000ft. There is a special message at the end of the video that I hope can be taken to heart by all.
