This Photo Of An Aeroplane Flying Over The Bahamas Was Shot From The ISS 

Earlier this week, NASA’s Earth Observatory shared a beautiful photo of the Bahamas. While the landscape is majestic and all, PetaPixel points out that the coolest thing about the photo wasn’t immediately evident.

Boeing Wants To Harvest Electricity From The Roar Of Your Plane Taking Off 

Jet engines are extraordinarily loud at roughly 140 decibels — and airports have struggled with mitigating their roar since the early days of commercial flight. An engineer at Boeing wants to make the cacophony more useful, if not silence it for good.

Awesome View Of A Sunset Through The Nose Of An Old B-25 Bomber

Image Cache: What. A. View. The nose of the B-25 bomber offers up such a fantastic view that it’s probably the perfect place to be for a sunset because not only do you get to see the entire world in a clear bubble, you get to see the old rickety steering wheel of a plane used since 1941 and all the gear that comes with it. So cool.

These Photos Of F-22 Arctic Raptors In Alaska Are So Striking They Look Unreal

Taken by photographer John Dibbs for Lockheed Martin’s Code One magazine, these two F-22 Raptors are flying against the snowy picturesque backdrop of Alaska and they look absolutely stunning. So stunning and pristine and impressive that the pictures almost look fake.

The FAA Warned Boeing About The Flaw That Caused A 777 To Explode In Las Vegas

When a jetliner’s engine explodes moments before take off, people ask questions. Now, less than a week after that very thing happened to a British Airways 777, answers are starting to emerge — and they’re scary.

You Can Now 3D-Print Your Own TSA Master Keys

TSA-recognised locks provide little more than a false sense of security. That’s not news. It is news, however, that some hacker type has uploaded the CAD files of the agency’s master keys to Github, so that anybody can 3D-print them at home. Let the stealing begin!

What Happens If You Take Frozen Liquids Through Airport Security

Nobody enjoys going through airports. Despite the miracle of air travel for the masses and the systems for funnelling the right people into the right places being a magnificent example of engineering and system design, it is basically impossible to board a plane without being intensely frustrated.

A Software Upgrade Grounded Hundreds Of Flights This Weekend

Were you flying to or from the eastern seaboard over the weekend? I’m so sorry. A botched software update caused hundreds of flights to be delayed or cancelled on Saturday and Sunday, so there’s a decent chance you had a bad trip.

The Crazy Simulator Where Pilots Learn How To Fly The F-35

How do pilots learn how to fly a fighter jet that cost a trillion dollars to develop (or a $135 million a pop to make)? By hopping in a total bad arse simulator that mimics everything about the F-35 in basically the sickest video game ever. The pilots in the simulator look like they’re flying some space age ship, with helmets that make them look like they have alien eyes.

We Cannot Allow These Awful Sliding Aeroplane Seats To Become Real

It’s easy to think of ways we could improve aeroplane seat design. It takes some sick creativity to think of how we could make it worse, though. But the world is full of sick people — like these dudes from North Carolina who want to put aeroplane seats on wheels and control them with an iPad.
