NORWEGIAN NAVY, world's fastest naval vessel
WATCH IN HD WORLD'S FASTEST NAVAL VESSEL
Norwegian navy missile torpedo boat (MTB) or corveta's as they are really
called, doing a drive by past one of the norwegian navy's coastguard
vessels. The corveta skjold is capable of speeds over 60 knots (about
70mph) and is to this day the worlds fastes naval combat vessel. the ships
can reach such big speeds by using there catamaran hulls to trap an air
bubble underneath the vessel, hence avoiding most of the drag. These
surface effect ships carry the same exact armament as the norwegian
frigates (fridtjof nansen class) but do not have the same stamina.

Flying DH Mosquito KA114.
In October 2012 Warren Denholm put our POV camera on his helmet to record
the photo shoot we conducted from Ardmore with the Mosquito and a DH
Vampire over Auckland city in New Zealand, photo plane was the Spitfire in
Take off - 1:49
Vampire & Spitfire Formation - 4:35
Spitfire Close Formation - 6:07
Landing - 13:55
The beeping sound you can hear sometimes is caused by the throttles being
pulled back to a certain point with the undercarriage up, it is a warning
for the pilot during the landing phase but in certain stages of flight it
is ok to hear it and can see and hear how much skill and attention is
needed to fly the Mosquito in formation.
Dave Phillips is the test pilot during this flight.

GREAT DIESEL EXHAUST NOTE!!
Trip onboard the Maldivian Ferry "MTCC Uniya", leaving from Baa Atoll
Hithaadhoo to Male'
Twin turbochaged Diesels producing
around 1900hp (and a really nice Exhaust tone!). The boat creates sort of a
tsunami during deceleration, due to it's deep draft. During the
acceleration, the boat's wake literally jumps back:P.
This ferry was built around 1987, but It's well maintained, and performs
good as new!
And not to mention the beautiful Maldivian scenery!
