C-130 YMC-130H Lockheed Hercules flight test accident crash
Discovery Communications Content copyright. 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.
HMS Ark Royal - Last Ever Harrier (GR9) Launches, November 2010
These are the last ever Harriers to launch from the Ark Royal, as she heads from Newcastle to Hamburg for the ship's company's last ever foreign trip and 'run ashore'. Both the Harrier and Ark Royal are being de-commissioned (scrapped). A big thanks goes to the incompetent, self-conceited, greedy bankers and part of the coalition government's 'frugal' answer to appease them and plug the infamous 'black hole' of the recession. Thanks, Mr Cameron, I knew you valued the armed forces! See more info at:-http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm201012/cmselect/cmdfence/950 /950vw04.htm

Amazing Carpet Bomb!
Very intense simulated carpet bomb by the A-26 Invader. Filmed at the 2009 Randolph Air Force Base air show in San Antonio, Texas. You can view this video in 3d if you have a pair of 3d glasses. Remember to subscribe for more air show videos! Visit my new blog at http://airshowvideos.blogspot.com/ for air show videos and general news about aviation, rock and roll, and San Antonio. Oh and if anybody read this, there are a few observations from the comments. (1) Of course this is pyrotechnics. It is not a real bomb and there is nothing wrong with that. A real bomb would be way too dangerous and costly. (2) Hateful comments against the U.S. or anybody in general will not be tolerated. (3) I doubt this pollutes the air very much. Your daily commute to work probably produces just as much pollution. (4) I doubt there is much if any taxpayer money being used for this show. Even if there is, it is a service to the people to open the base to the public for free and demonstrate current and past military technology for the benefit of education. Plus, it is also works as an advertisement for the military. My first airshow really really made me want to be a fighter pilot.
