Top secret Iran hostage rescue mission aircraft
YMC-130H were three modified Lockheed Hercules Aircraft for Top Secret
"Operation Credible Sport", for second Iran hostage crisis rescue attempt.
One of the measures considered for a second hostage rescue attempt in Iran
was a project to develop a "Super STOL" aircraft, to be flown by Combat
Talon crews, that would use a soccer stadium near the US Embassy as an
improvised landing field. Called Credible Sport, the project acquired three
C-130H transports from an airlift unit in late August 1980, one as a test
bed and two for the mission, and modified them on an accelerated basis.
Designated as the XFC-130H, the aircraft were modified by the installation
of 30 rockets in five sets: eight firing forward to stop the aircraft,
eight downward to brake its descent rate, eight rearward for takeoff
assist, four mounted on the wings to stabilize them during takeoff
transition, and two at the rear of the tail to prevent it from striking the
ground because of over-rotation. Other STOL features included a dorsal and
two ventral fins on the rear fuselage, double-slotted flaps and extended
ailerons, a new radome, a tailhook for landing aboard an aircraft carrier,
and Combat Talon avionics, including a TF/TA radar, a defensive
countermeasures suite, and a Doppler radar/GPS tie-in to the aircraft's
inertial navigation system.
Of the three aircraft, only one received full modification. The program
abruptly ended when it crashed during testing on October 29, 1980, and
international events soon after rendered another rescue attempt moot.

Slash 4x4 Water Action
To answer some of the questions in the comments:
***The Traxxas Slash is waterproof***
1) This was taken at Pipal Park in Omaha, Nebraska.
2) I am driving my Traxxas Slash VXL 4x4 1/10 scale short course truck.
3) This is a water fountain that had recently been shut off for winter. Not
a public urinal.
4) No, this is not a real truck.
5) Yes it is battery powered. At the time I was running 8.4 volt NiMh
battery but have since changed to a 7.4 volt LiPo which can be seen in my
A-10 Warthog (Thunderbolt II) bombing run
***I disabled comments because I'm sick of people telling everyone that the
explosions are rigged. We all know that they are rigged. I never implied
that they weren't rigged. The commentator at the airshow, and on the
movie's audio, says that the explosions are rigged. Comments in the video
itself say that they are rigged.
TL;DR I got tired of rampant stupidity and disabled comments.***
Low Quality Video.
This is video from the 2006 Cleveland National Airshow hosted at
Burke-Lakefront Airport in Cleveland Ohio.The explosions are rigged, but
it's cool none-the-less.
SUPER ADVANCED US Air Force B-2 stealth bomber
Aircraft stealth us air force The Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit, also known
as the Stealth Bomber, is an American strategic bomber, featuring low
observable stealth technology designed for penetrating dense anti-aircraft
defenses; it is able to deploy both conventional and nuclear weapons. The
bomber has a crew of two and can drop up to eighty 500 lb (230 kg)-class
JDAM GPS-guided bombs, or sixteen 2,400 lb (1,100 kg) B83 nuclear bombs.
The B-2 is the only aircraft that can carry large air-to-surface standoff
weapons in a stealth configuration.
Development originally started under the "Advanced Technology Bomber" (ATB)
project during the Carter administration, and its performance was one of
his reasons for the cancellation of the supersonic Rockwell B-1 Lancer. ATB
continued during the Reagan administration, but worries about delays in its
introduction led to the reinstatement of the B-1 program as well. Program
costs rose throughout development. Designed and manufactured by Northrop
Grumman with assistance from Boeing, the cost of each aircraft averaged
US$737 million (in 1997 dollars). Total procurement costs averaged $929
million per aircraft, which includes spare parts, equipment, retrofitting,
and software support. The total program cost including development,
engineering and testing, averaged $2.1 billion per aircraft in 1997.
Because of its considerable capital and operating costs, the project was
controversial in the U.S. Congress and among the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The
winding-down of the Cold War in the latter portion of the 1980s
dramatically reduced the need for the aircraft, which was designed with the
intention of penetrating Soviet airspace and attacking high-value targets.
During the late 1980s and 1990s, Congress slashed plans to purchase 132
bombers to 21. In 2008, a B-2 was destroyed in a crash shortly after
takeoff, and the crew ejected safely. A total of 20 B-2s remain in
service with the United States Air Force, who plan to operate the B-2 until
The B-2 is capable of all-altitude attack missions up to 50,000 feet
(15,000 m), with a range of more than 6,000 nautical miles (11,000 km)
unrefuelled and over 10,000 nautical miles (19,000 km) with one refueling.
Though originally designed primarily as a nuclear bomber, it was first used
in combat to drop conventional bombs on Serbia during the Kosovo War in
1999, and saw continued use during the war in Iraq and in Afghanistan.
The B-2 Spirit was developed to take over the USAF's vital penetration
missions, able to travel deep into enemy territory to deploy their
ordnance, which could include nuclear weapons. The B-2 is a flying wing
aircraft, meaning it has no fuselage or tail. The blending of
low-observable technologies with high aerodynamic efficiency and large
payload gives the B-2 significant advantages over previous bombers. Low
observability provides a greater freedom of action at high altitudes, thus
increasing both range and field of view for onboard sensors. The U.S. Air
Force reports its range as approximately 6,000 nautical miles (6,900 mi;
11,000 km). At cruising altitude the B-2 refuels every six hours,
taking on up to 50 short tons (45 t) of fuel at a time.
Due to the aircraft's complex flight characteristics and design
requirements to maintain very-low visibility to multiple means of
detection, both the development and construction of the B-2 required
pioneering use of computer-aided design and manufacturing
technologies. Northrop Grumman is the B-2's prime contractor; other
contributing subcontractors include Boeing, Raytheon (formerly Hughes
Aircraft), G.E. and Vought Aircraft. The B-2 bears a resemblance to
earlier Northrop aircraft: the YB-35 and YB-49 were both flying wing
bombers that had been canceled in development in the early 1950s,
allegedly for political reasons.
As of September 2013 about 80 pilots fly the B-2. Each aircraft has a
crew of two, a pilot in the left seat and mission commander in the
right, and has provisions for a third crew member if needed. For
comparison, the B-1B has a crew of four and the B-52 has a crew of five.
The B-2 is highly automated and, unlike most two-seat aircraft, one crew
member can sleep in a camp bed, use a toilet, or prepare a hot meal while
the other monitors the aircraft; extensive sleep cycle and fatigue research
was conducted to improve crew performance on long sorties.
The B-2, in the envisaged Cold War scenario, was to perform
deep-penetrating nuclear strike missions, making use of its stealthy
capabilities to avoid detection and interception throughout missions.
There are two internal bomb bays in which munitions are stored either on a
rotary launcher or two bomb-racks; the carriage of the weapons loadouts
internally results in less radar visibility than externally mounting of
munitions. Nuclear ordnance includes the B61 and B83 nuclear bombs
