Awesome Picture Of A V-22 Osprey Makes It Look Like An Invisible Plane With Star Engines

Image Cache: The V-22 Osprey is easily one of our favourite aircraft in use today and this picture of it might be the coolest photo of the tiltrotor aircraft ever taken. Because of the haziness and the dust and the focus of the camera, it looks like the Osprey is about to turn on an invisible mode. Even cooler, is how the propellers look like they’re powered by the stars.

Into The Sun

This amazing shot may look like a perfectly-photographed and staged action movie — but it was actually taken this morning as pilots prepare for the largest NATO exercise in 13 years.

US And South Korea's Biggest Live Fire Drill Ever Was Madness

There are so many things going on in this year’s US and South Korea’s live fire exercise that it’s hard to remember what you’re seeing because each drill just keeps raising the ante over the previous one. All I know is that there were a ton of tanks, helicopters that filled the sky, planes that scorched flybys, and so many explosions that ripped up the Earth.

A Helicopter Closely Chases A Race Car In This Truly Insane Stunt

You see the word insane get thrown around on the internet a lot. It’s a good word! But few things actually deserve the word insane. This stunt does though. Felix Baumgartner (the dude who jumped from space) pilots a Bolkov BO105 aerobatic helicopter that is basically having a movie car chase scene with a race car and forgot he was piloting a helicopter and not driving a car.

Black Hawk Helicopter Explodes After Landing On Minefield, Four Killed

Video: This is a graphic video showing a Colombian Army Blackhawk helicopter landing on a minefield. It explodes tragically, killing four and injuring six of the 15 people on board. The explosives in the minefield were supposedly detonated by the guerilla movement FARC. So sad. War sucks on both sides.

Watch A 10-Engine Drone Transform From A Helicopter Into A Plane

Video: NASA’s Greased Lightning GL-10 is a beast of a drone (it has 10 engines!) that’s the closest thing we have to a Transformer in real life. It can flip itself into a helicopter and then fly like an aeroplane and then revert back to helicopter mode. It’s awesome seeing the wings tilt back and forth as it changes gears.

How Did They Squeeze A Camera Into This Tiny RC Helicopter?

We’ve been flying tiny helicopters around our living rooms for years now, but Silverlit, the company who created the world’s smallest flying toy, has somehow found a way to squeeze a video camera into its miniature RC choppers now.

How Helicopters Are Designed To Land Safely When Their Engine Fails

Myth: Helicopters will drop like a rock when the engine shuts down. In fact, you have a better chance at surviving in a helicopter when the engine fails than you do in an aeroplane.

US Marines Leaving A Super Stallion Helicopter Looks Like A Movie Scene

Yup, real life is cooler than the movies. Especially when that life is of a US Marine. Here are five Marines walking away from a CH-53E Super Stallion helicopter in the desert in a training exercise. It looks more badass and perfectly picturesque than any still from a Hollywood military movie.

That Time The US Postal Service Actually Used Gyrocopters To Deliver Mail

When a Florida mailman landed a gyrocopter with a USPS logo on the lawn of the Capitol today, I’m sure you were asking yourself the same question I was: Does the US postal service really deliver mail via gyrocopter? Not today. But it turns out they did, back in the 1930s.
