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.

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.

Dayshot: Man, this is such a cool shot of the awesome tilt-rotor aircraft, the V-22 Osprey.

Crazy Angle Of A US Navy Helicopter On A Guided-Missile Cruiser

The horizon in this picture is totally straight and normal but the helicopter and the USS Anzio ship are, well, totally angled and not. That makes for a really cool picture that makes it look like the world is bent all out of order. But it’s just another day in the life of the US Navy.
