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
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.

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

***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.***

it's cool none-the-less.
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
