Here Are All The Awesome Vertical Landing Jets In History

Video: We all know how badarse the Harriers and F-35s of the world are, but some of these other vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircrafts from history are totally wild. The Williams X-Jet was essentially a flying one-man podium barrel thing. The Avro Canada VZ-9 Avrocar was legitimately a man-made flying saucer. And so many other VTOL aircraft look like they have been ripped from The Jetsons.

A submission to a Senate inquiry into the feasibility of Government’s planned purchase of at least 72 F-35 Lightning II fighter jets says that the multirole planes will be instantly outmatched in air superiority by the airborne wings of competing countries in the region like China and Indonesia, and will fare even worse against future threats.

Seeing B-2 Stealth Bombers Land Is Like Seeing Alien UFOs Come To Earth

I forget how impressively thin and futuristic looking a B-2 stealth bomber is. I mean, just watch these two stealth bombers land at Royal Air Force Fairford in England, it looks like a UFO has just touched down on Earth and is ready to take over our planet. Or like a sci-fi fighter jet has hopped through a movie screen and been brought to real life.


Intimidating Head-On View Of An F-16

Briefly: I wouldn’t want to stand in front of a fighter jet like this or see one in my rear view for fear of soiling my pants. The F-16 is just on the ground and undergoing pre-flight inspection and it still has such a commanding presence. Killer machine birds.
