The Graceful Moment When A Commando Boat Goes Airborne

Image Cache: Airdrop operations never cease to amaze me. This photo shows a special training moment frozen in time: a commando boat slipping out of a Lockheed MC-130J transport aircraft.

The New Home Of The Most Exotic Bomber Ever Built Is Aerospace Heaven

The National Museum of the United States Air Force is the world’s largest military aviation museum — and it’s also home to the world’s only remaining North American XB-70 Valkyrie, which was moved to a new hangar a few days ago.

This Gorgeous GPS Satellite Is Ready For Tomorrow's Launch 

This golden slice of visual perfection is a Global Positioning System IIF-series satellite. It underwent final encapsulation inside its four-metre diameter protective payload fairing on October 21 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

Two Sated Warthogs Light Up The Sky In Spectacular Fashion

Aerial refuelling photos are always awesome. But this one, taken right after two of America’s best ground attack jets were topped up, easily beats all the similar photos I’ve ever seen.

What It's Like To Be Attacked By An Attack Dog

Meet Fritz. He’s a 57kg Belgian Malinois employed as a Military Working Dog by the Air Force. They figured it’d be a good idea to get him to attack me so I could write you an article about it. Let’s see how that goes.

See The First Female F-35 Pilot Begin Her Training

Lt Col Christine Mau, 33rd Operations Group deputy commander, just completed a training flight as the first female F-35 pilot in the US. Here are photos of her in an F-35A, a fifth-generation single-seat fighter.

The B-2 Still Looks Like It's From The Future

Briefly: It is almost unbelievable that the B-2 is more than 25 years old — it still looks like it comes from the future. In this photo, a B-2 is refuelled by a KC-10A during a training mission near Whiteman Air Force Base on April 11. [Staff Sgt. Brian Kelly/US Air Force]

Photo Of US Air Force F-16 Thunderbirds Flying Perfectly Into The Sky 

I love this spectacular picture of the US Air Force Thunderbirds flying in perfect unison into the sky because the trail they leave behind look like the fingers of a cloud monster giving the jets a boost into the air. And because they’re above the clouds, it almost looks like they’re flying on a Hoth-like different planet.

The USAF Thunderbirds In A Perfect Formation

Briefly: If this hadn’t been published by the US Air Force, I would think it’s a fake and those F-16s from their Thunderbird exhibition team weren’t real but cloned and perfectly aligned in Photoshop to form a delta formation. It was shot at the Daytona International Speedway during a practice flight for the Daytona 500 February 21, 2015.

Nobody Would Have Believed This Photo 70 Years Ago

Looking at this picture, it is hard to believe that the United States and Australia were in a bloody no quarter war against Japan only 70 years ago: Spot the Mitsubishi F-2 escorting a Boeing B-52 Stratofortress, the direct heir of the Boeing B-29 Superfortress bombers that obliterated Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
