A Beautiful Photo Of The Cockpit Of The Lockheed MC-130

Photo: Combat jet aeroplanes may be way more sleeker and cooler than cargo planes, but there is something magnificent about slowly flying in one of these beast, looking at the landscape in calm morning through the huge windows of the cockpit.


Disneyland And Walt Disney World Are No-Fly Zones

Aerial photographs of Disney’s theme parks are rare these days. That’s not because they’re boring or dumb. They’re impossible to take, because Disneyland and Walt Disney World are prohibited air space. And it’s not just because of terrorism, either.


This May Be The Coolest, Most Futuristic Bomber Ever Built

While the Saab 35 Draken may be the coolest, most futuristic combat jet ever made, when it comes to bombers that title goes to the XB-70 Valkyrie, a gigantic supersonic strategic nuclear bomber that never entered service. Seriously, when I say gigantic I really mean it. This thing is unbelievable — check the image below.


Watch A 55-Day Overhaul Of The Largest Passenger Plane In Two Minutes

Emirates’ very first mammoth Airbus A380 has racked up some crazy stats since first being delivered to the airline back in 2008. And after 3000 takeoffs, 20 million kilometres and 1.2 million passengers, it’s no wonder the plane’s first major checkup took a total of 55 days. Thanks to the magic of timelapse, though, you get to watch the whole thing go down in under two minutes.


JetBlue Seats Are About To Get Even More Cramped

It’s a dark day for personal space bubbles everywhere: JetBlue is about to cram 15 more seats into its Airbus A320. What’s more, after being one of the only remaining major airline holdouts, it’s also finally caving in and tacking on baggage fees. Delightful.


Monster Machines: This Plane That Carries Planes Costs A Quarter Of A Billion Dollars

With a front end like Megamind’s noggin, this massive airliner may not be the prettiest of aeroplanes but her whopping 43-tonne cargo capacity more than makes up for her homeliness. Popularly known as the “Beluga”, this super-capacity transport helps keep the European aviation industry in the air. It’s a whale of a plane.


Working Aeroplane Transformed Into Perfect Loft Now Available On Airbnb

The latest marketing stunt from the Dutch airline KLM gives you the chance to spend a night in this aeroplane refurbished into a gorgeous loft. At first I thought that sleeping next to the runaway of one of the busiest airports in Europe sounded like a bad idea, but then I saw the pictures and changed my mind.


Amazing Ultra-High Definition Photo Of The SR-71 Blackbird Cockpit

Photo: I still get the chills when I re-read Brian Shul’s account of his Blackbird flight against enemy SAM batteries over Libya. Imagine yourself inside that tight SR-71 cockpit with all the alarms sounding. This cool 360-degree virtual reality view will help.


Air Fuel Nozzles Look So Weird And Cool

I’ve seen lots of photos of airborne refueling, but always from the side of the boom operator. I’ve never seen the fuel nozzle like this. It looks so weird and cool! I like how the nozzle comes out of the flying boom, like the mini-mouth coming out of the alien’s mouth.


Impressive 1980s Photo Of Old Jet Fighters Flying Over Giza's Pyramids

Photo: I’m completely nerd-gasming out over this image of old jet fighters flying over the pyramids of Giza during operation Bright Star in 1983. If I’m not mistaken, I see from left to right, top to bottom: F-4 Phantom, Mirage (III?), MiG-19, F-16 Fighting Falcon, F-14 Tomcat, A-6 Intruder, MiG-21, and A-7 Corsair.
