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.

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.***

Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit Stealth Bomber USAF Aerospace Power
Mission: The B-2 Spirit is a multi-role bomber capable of delivering both
conventional and nuclear munitions. A dramatic leap forward in technology,
the bomber represents a major milestone in the U.S. bomber modernization
program. The B-2 brings massive firepower to bear, in a short time,
anywhere on the globe through previously impenetrable defenses.
Along with the B-52, the B-2 provides the penetrating flexibility and
effectiveness inherent in manned bombers. Its low-observable, or "stealth,"
characteristics give it the unique ability to penetrate an enemy's most
sophisticated defenses and threaten its most valued, and heavily defended,
targets. Its capability to penetrate air defenses and threaten effective
retaliation provides a strong, effective deterrent and combat force well
into the 21st century.
The revolutionary blending of low-observable technologies with high
aerodynamic efficiency and large payload gives the B-2 important advantages
over existing bombers. Its low-observability provides it greater freedom of
action at high altitudes, thus increasing its range and a better field of
view for the aircraft's sensors. Its unrefueled range is approximately
6,000 nautical miles (9,600 kilometers).
The B-2's low observability is derived from a combination of reduced
infrared, acoustic, electromagnetic, visual and radar signatures. These
signatures make it difficult for the sophisticated defensive systems to
detect, track and engage the B-2. Many aspects of the low-observability
process remain classified; however, the B-2's composite materials, special
coatings and flying-wing design all contribute to its "stealthiness."
The B-2 has a crew of two pilots, a pilot in the left seat and mission
commander in the right, compared to the B-1B's crew of four and the B-52's
crew of five.
The first B-2 was publicly displayed on Nov. 22, 1988, when it was rolled
out of its hangar at Air Force Plant 42, Palmdale, Calif. Its first flight
was July 17, 1989. The B-2 Combined Test Force, Air Force Flight Test
Center, Edwards Air Force Base, Calif., is responsible for flight testing
the engineering, manufacturing and development aircraft on the B-2.
Whiteman AFB, Mo., is the only operational base for the B-2. The first
aircraft, Spirit of Missouri, was delivered Dec. 17, 1993. Depot
maintenance responsibility for the B-2 is performed by Air Force contractor
support and is managed at the Oklahoma City Air Logistics Center at Tinker
The combat effectiveness of the B-2 was proved in Operation Allied Force,
where it was responsible for destroying 33 percent of all Serbian targets
in the first eight weeks, by flying nonstop to Kosovo from its home base in
Missouri and back. In support of Operation Enduring Freedom, the B-2 flew
one of its longest missions to date from Whiteman to Afghanistan and back.
The B-2 completed its first-ever combat deployment in support of Operation
Iraqi Freedom, flying 22 sorties from a forward operating location as well
as 27 sorties from Whiteman AFB and releasing more than 1.5 million pounds
of munitions. The aircraft received full operational capability status in
December 2003. On Feb. 1, 2009, the Air Force's newest command, Air Force
Global Strike Command, assumed responsibility for the B-2 from Air Combat

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
B-2s take off from RAF Fairford - 15/06/14
Something a little different, went out with dad to RAF Fairford to capture
two Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirits taking off, back to Whiteman Air Force
Base, Missouri. With radio commentary.
As you may know, my aircraft knowledge is fairly limited, so any extra
information is appreciated.

A Day With the Legendary Northrop B-2 Spirit of the US Air Force
The Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit, also called Stealth Bomber, is a bomber of
the US Air Force (USAF) developed by the US aircraft manufacturer Northrop
during the Cold War. Iconic aircraft flying wings, the B-2 Spirit is one of
the most famous stealth aircraft. Billed as the most efficient in the world
in its class, it is powered by four jet engines GE F118 with a unit 77 kN
thrust and has two compartments can receive a theoretical maximum load of
about 35 tonnes.
The B-2 Spirit is also the most expensive aircraft in the twentieth
century, with global unit cost (research, development and testing included)
estimated at $ 2.2 billion US1,2 in 1998. It is one of the reasons which
design was controversial in the US Congress and among the Joint Chiefs of
Staff. While 132 copies were originally to be built, will be only 21, which
partly explains their unit cost.
The maiden flight of the first B-2 Spirit, the Spirit of America, takes
place July 17, 1989 and the first operational aircraft is received by the
USAF at the end of 1993. Originally intended to strategic bombing
conventional or nuclear weapons of Soviet targets during the Cold War, the
B-2 Spirit finally realizes his first speech in Serbia during the Kosovo
war in 1999 and is involved in the wars in Afghanistan (2001), Iraq (2003)
and Libya (2011).
In late 2006, the USAF indicates that the B-2 Spirit is expected to remain
in service until 2058, but calls for tenders to find a successor in July
