Watch An Airbus Make A Perfect Landing In Crosswind In South Of Argentina

Getting a perfect landing in high crosswind conditions is a daunting task. Even for the most experienced pilots out there. The combination of a big crosswind scenario hitting the aircraft and the icy conditions that are apparent in South Argentina right now, make this one of the most interesting landing videos seen lately. The aircraft in question seen here is an Airbus A340-300 which is a large, four-engine type of an airplane. It is used by many airlines out there, providing the safety and performance needed by aircraft of that size, usage and performance as well. On the other hand, unlike some high-wing aircraft, the

Top Five Best Looking Jet Fighters

For as long as there are military jets, there was a heated debate running about the best looking jet fighters ever made. The usual internet discussion participants always have their own particular favorites. For the most part, particular choices are subjective. However, common sense and the general feeling of what’s good looking, can help us yield some rather viable candidates for the top five looking jets ever made. We’ve kept this short for the sole purpose of adding just what we feel is best looking. Some will argue a few of these planes shouldn’t have a place on this list, while some will vocally support them. On

A B-52 Had A Daunting Landing At Oskosh Airfield

America’s biggest air show, EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh Wisconsin, finally had their biggest visitor yet! It’s a B-52 Stratofortress bomber, visiting one of the most appealing air shows held in the territory of United States and it made a big impression. The reason why BUFF (Big Ugly Fat Fucker – an affectionate term used for this awesome aircraft) never visited this airfield is its sheer size! The B-52 is pretty much as wide as airfield’s main runway, making landings a daunting challenge for even the most experienced pilots. The occasion for the big airplane’s visit was a celebratory one for both the show and the

Report: The F-35 Can’t Beat The F-16 In A Dogfight

Take a deep breath, this needs to sink in. According to the information floating around various internet websites, the much maligned F-35 Joint Strike Fighter had a rather difficult time handling a 70’s product, namely the F-16 Fighting Falcon. Earlier this year, the two jets were pitted against each other, all in a potentially fun dogfight. While we wont get into specifics of this test flight and training exercise (since we don’t know all the details), it is worth noting (according to various sources) the F-16 put the F-35 through its paces – and pretty much won it. This information became public thanks to a test

Will F-35 Get New AETD Engine?

The much maligned JSF program and its F-35 Lightning II fighter jet may see some bright light being shined upon it soon! According to some rumors, the much famed albeit rather criticized stealth fighter will probably receive the new Adaptive Engine Technology Development (AETD) engine. This marks the beginning of a new era for the aircraft for several reasons: better fuel efficiency, more power and better utility for the airplane overall. Simply put, it would extend the aircraft’s range and allow it to better fulfill its role(s). With many new potential threats coming online in the next few years, adding range and time on station is

Video: A-10 Warthog Six Minutes Of Awesome

If you like military things, the much famed A-10 Warthog close air support (CAS) vehicle of death will certainly bring smiles to your face. This airplane has been on the chopping block for as long as I can remember, giving way in public’s eyes to some better looking and less capable airplanes like the F-35 for example. On the other hand, to many, this is one of the most ugly beautiful pieces of military hardware ever built. The idea was simple: try to add the biggest gun you can to an aircraft. This was made by designing the plane around the massive seven barrel gattling
