THE WORLDS BIGGEST PLANES!! by kieran smith
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8VzgbjtTDww The Antonov An-225 Mriya,(THE
WORLDS BIGGEST PLANE) (NATO reporting name: Cossack) is a strategic airlift
transport airplane that was built by Antonov (ASTC). It was designed for
the Soviet space program as a replacement for the Myasishchev M-4 'Bison'
for the purpose of carrying the Energia rocket Boosters and to also be able to carry the
Buran space shuttle in piggy-back mode much the same as the American
Shuttle Carrier Aircraft.The An-225 first flew on 21 December, 1988. Only
one An-225 is currently in service. It is commercially available for
carrying ultra heavy and/or oversize freight. It can carry up to 227 metric
tons (250 short tons) of cargo. A second An-225 was partially built in
connection with the Soviet space program but was never finished. This unit
is finally nearing completion as of 2005. The construction of further units
will depend upon demand for oversize cargolifting.At 600 metric tons, the
An-225 is the world's heaviest aircraft, although its wingspan is less than
that of the "Spruce Goose", Howard Hughes' flying boat, which never flew
more a single, short, low-altitude test flight. Both the An-124 and An-225
are larger than the C-5 Galaxy, the largest aircraft in the U.S. inventory.
The An-225 is also larger than the Airbus A380. In November of 2004, FAI
placed the An-225 in the Guinness Book of Records for its 240 records and
overall outstanding aerial performance.The funniest 6 minutes you will ever
see! Remember how many of these you have done!

How Thrust 2 became the world's fastest car, achieving 633mph in 1983
October 2013 marks 30 years since irrepressible British businessman Richard
Noble took back the world land speed record "for Britain", driving his
jet-powered Thrust 2 on Nevada's Black Rock Desert at 633mph.

Since then, he has masterminded Andy Green's supersonic record with Thrust
SSC and now he and Green want to beat 1000mph in a new jet and
rocket-powered car called Bloodhound in South Africa in 2015. Here, he
talks about his achievements and explains how and why he's still going for
new land speed records to this day.

2009 MCAS Miramar Airshow - Shockwave Jet Truck
Shockwave Jet Truck
2009 MCAS Miramar Airshow
Friday October 2, 2009
IN THIS VIDEO, Kent Shockley fires up the newly rebuilt Shockwave Jet Truck
and takes it down Runway 24R at Miramar for a dry run. This newly rebuilt
Shockwave features many more and much-improved safety features than the
original. It is those safety features that were on the original Shockwave
that Kent is able to bring to you this "second-generation" Shockwave.
I apologize for any bad color and/or vertical lines or American flag
intrusion that may or may not be in this video. Unfortunately there were
American flags that got in the way of the video during some critical parts
of the videos and I have had some camera trouble throughout the weekend.

Lockheed U-2 Flight - 70,000ft (2 Seat TU-2 Trainer)

- 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
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.

Astronauts have, of course, gone higher still, but their missions are few

Go Kart 1000cc with flatshifter.
The Flatshifter has now been installed, the initial test run with the Kart
raised above the ground went well. Gearing up without moving the foot from
the throttle, and gear down using a throttle blipper, The gear change is
smooth in both directions. We are hoping to get it out on the track soon
and test it out, so until then I am going to grow a large set of nuts
before we go flying round the track.

Bloodhound SSC 1000 mph rocket car, land speed record attempt
Equinox Graphics is proud to present the visualisation of Bloodhound SSC,
the trans-sonic rocket car aiming to smash the current land speed record
and raise it to a mind-bending 1000 mph (Mach 1.4). The car is being
designed and built in Britain, and Equinox Graphics has had the privilege
of working in association with the design team to bring the car to life.
The minute-long viral video was produced on time and at High Definition
(1920x1080, 25fps, full GI/radiosity) in just three weeks - including
rendering time on our computer cluster.
The animation has proved extremely popular with the world's media, and has
proved to be the ideal medium for engaging the public's imagination. It has
so far been featured on BBC news (TV and online), and on stations as
diverse as CNN and Al Jazeera.

4 Jet Car Drag Race
Under the definition of "awesome" should be a picture of 4-jet cars racing!
NMRA/NMCA All Star Nationals at ZMax Dragway in Charlotte, NC ended the
