  • NASA's Greased Lightning 10-Engine Hybri...

    Published on YouTube, Nov 30, 2015 Engineers at NASA's Langley Research Center have developed a battery-powered drone that has 10 engines and can take off like a helicopter and fly efficiently like an aircraft. The prototype, called Greased Lightning because it can run on any heavy fuels (even fryer grease) just completed a successful aerial transition from a hover to traditional flight mode and back. The initial thought was to develop a 20-foot wingspan aircraft powered by hybrid diesel/electric engines, but the team started with smaller versions for testing, built by rapid prototyping.

  • Szekely Engine Startup

    Phil Michmerhuizen demonstrates his 1931 Szekely airplane engine at the EAA Chapter 211 Picnic, Grand Haven, Michigan, August 22, 2009.

    Note at the beginning of the video, right after Phil starts the engine, it looks like he removes a battery jumper cable from his pants.  This was part of Phil's act.  Phil, was quite the character.  It isn't clear from the video, but the jumper cable allegedly had something to do with making the engine start. After a couple of failed attempts, Phil, knowing the engine was ready to fire up on the next pull, would attach the jumper cable to his belt or his back pocket for a little something extra.

    Phill was a showman, and a really great guy.  He will be missed.

    With a hero's welcome, the Gary Sinise Foundation brought WWII veterans and their guardians to The National WWII Museum in New Orleans, a one-of-a-kind experience that included a tour of this incredible museum, as well as entertainment, celebratory meals and an opportunity for community with their fellow veterans.

    This will put a smile on your face, and maybe a tear in your eye, and gratitude in your heart.

  • Arrowhead Stadium, 49 plane flyover

    Chiefs vs Raiders, 2013.  

    As you know, Obama cuts eliminated military flyovers at large events. Well, there's a group of guys in Kansas City who do some formation flying in their own planes, and decided they'd volunteer to pick up the slack. They invited a couple of other groups to join them and before they knew it they had 48 guys with their own airplanes signing up to join in. If they had more time, they probably would have gotten an even larger group as people kept joining and a 49th was added near the event. One additional feature of the flyover was the use of pink smoke for cancer awareness. The folks from the Guinness Book were there and are expected to confirm it as the largest formation flight ever. And to top it off the crowd later set the record for the loudest gathering at a football stadium. Be sure your speakers are turned up... Best if watch at 'full screen."

  • FIRST AEROBATIC FLIGHT LEA

    Need a Smile Today? Fly along with this little 4-year-old on her First Aerobatic Flight with her Father!

    Lea is 4 year's old and her father, Raphael Langumier, posted her first aerobatic ride last year.

    "She asked me to go in flight and do inverted things," Langumier penned in the video's description. "So, we discussed, review the figures and went to fly."  

    Lea and her father communicate in French to each other about what he is doing, or about to do.

    When I first saw it, it reminded me of how much little girls trust their fathers and how easily they are amused.  Wait till you see the incredible shots of barrel rolls and the like and the giggles it produces from little Lea!  They are precious and contagious!
