Video Shows A Dude In A Wingsuit Getting Caught On An Aeroplane

Video: These daredevil dudes are total pros, so they aren’t fazed at all when one of their guys gets his wingsuit caught on the wheel of an aeroplane. But can you imagine yourself in that holy horror show? You just jumped out of a damn aeroplane and instead of plummeting to the ground (the ideal situation here), you end up dangling upside down on a flying aeroplane at the mercy of a violent wind.

Super Strong Camera Zoom Gets Ridiculously Close To An Aeroplane Flying In The Air From The Ground

Video: It’s a bird? It’s a… wait, yeah, it’s a plane. But the only reason you’d know that there’s a plane flying above you is because you randomly pointed your ridiculously powerful 200x zoom camera towards the sky and managed to spot an aeroplane flying through.

Luggage Made From Recycled Aeroplane Seats Might Just Be Indestructible

When you think of the daily abuse that aeroplane seats have to endure, it’s a minor miracle they aren’t torn to shreds after just a week of air travel. The fabrics used for the upholstery must be just short of indestructible, so it makes sense to eventually recycle those materials into bags and packs that can easily survive your daily commute.

Watch A Plane Almost Fall Off An Aircraft Carrier After A Cable Suddenly Snaps

Here’s an E-2C Hawkeye trying to land on the USS Eisenhower. Everything seems normal until the arresting cable on the carrier — which is supposed to snare an aircraft as it lands — suddenly snaps.
