October 1997, UK managed to break the sound barrier on earth, using the fantastic Thrust SSC vehicule. I made this video because there was too few videos about this remarkable event on the web. (music credits: Spa 24 hours - Stephen Baysted)
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.

1927 Ford: Double-Trouble -- /BIG MUSCLE
• Gordon Tronson
In the world of hot-rodding there are few cars that are going to leave as
big an impression as this - the 1927 Ford Model T custom simply known as
"Double-Trouble". It rides on a custom-built tube chassis that's fabricated
from 1.5-inch tube. Is powered by two 4.6-liter modular V8s from Ford with
four, count 'em, FOUR Superchargers for
an approximate power output of around 1,200 hp. It also utilizes the
rear-end (inboard disc brakes and all) from an early Jaguar. It's a rolling
a Hot Wheels car and a masterpiece of engineering that is sure to make all
your naughty bits tingle.
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.

Supersonic Flight, Sonic Booms
Sound travels at about 760 miles per hour, or 340 meters per second and
about 661 knots on an average day at sea level. And sometimes, you can
almost see it. Going close to that speed through air can cause some unusual
visual effects. This compiled footage includes F-14s, standard and Blue
Angels F-18s, plus the SR-71 and an Atlas Rocket launch. AVweb contacted
sources at NASA to research the phenomena.

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
night by lighting up ZMax's 4 drag lanes with the fire and the thunder of 4
jet turbine drag cars creating an estimated 24,000 HP on one track! The
Embry Riddle dragster takes off and runs a 5-second quarter.
Concorde Crash From Start To Finish Air France Flight 4590
Other interesing videos http://creativegrouptv.com/
Using cuts from the Air Crash Investigation programme, I have compiled
together the events of Air France Flight 4590 crash from start to finish. I
own none of the clips shown in this video, nor do i own the music.
Air France Flight 4590 was a Concorde flight operated by Air France which
was scheduled to run from Charles de Gaulle International Airport near
Paris, to John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City. On 25
July 2000, it crashed in Gonesse, France. All one hundred passengers and
nine crew members on board the flight died. On the ground, four people were
killed with one left injured.
The flight was chartered by German company Peter Deilmann Cruises. All
passengers were on their way to board the cruise ship MS Deutschland in New
York City for a 16-day cruise to South America.
This was the only fatal crash of a Concorde. It was the beginning of the
end for the Concorde as an airliner; the type was retired three years
